Maggan, 56, struggled with his finances in the Luxury Trap – it happened later: “Regrets nothing”

In season 32 of the popular long-distance runner Lyxfällan, the presenter does Magdalena Kowalczyk a visit to the participant Margareta Lindholm. There, the duo faced the almost impossible challenge of withdrawing Margareta’s cases from both the Crown Bailiff and debt collection.

Otherwise, a wage garnishment would be issued, and instead Margareta’s family and friends would be forced to pay the repayments on her loan. Here you can read more about Margareta’s involvement in Lyxfällan.

– I hope my family and friends don’t end up in the shit. I will fight for it, said Maggan, as she is called in the program, then.

“I’ll definitely try”

When News24 when Margareta Lindholm arrives, she has not yet seen the episode that aired on Tuesday evening, September 13 – and she feels a little nervous.

– I only know what I have done, I don’t know what the others say. That’s probably what’s a little nervous. I know that my son was a bit harsh, because he has told me that, says Margareta to Nyheter24.

The idea of ​​submitting an application to Lyxfällan originally came from her children, but Margareta felt hesitant at first. Until one night, when she was watching the program and the presenter urged others in a similar situation to apply:

– I’m definitely going to try it. If it works, it works, if it doesn’t, I’ve done what I could, Margareta says she thought and continues:

– If my friends don’t want to hear from me after this, then they can stay away. I have to think about myself.

Maggan in Lyxfällan: “Magdalena is tough”

All said and done, Margareta Lindholm was shortly afterwards visited by some from the production – and a rather long process was set in motion – before the program was finally recorded in February 2022.

– It was very emotional and a lot of tears. Because you realize that it is serious, says Margareta, adding that the first days were the toughest.

– Magdalena is tough, but they have to be.

That’s what happened to Maggan in Lyxfällan

It has now been nearly seven months since the recording of Lyxfällan. In retrospect, Margareta Lindholm mostly thinks that it feels good. Nowadays, unlike that cold week last winter, she thinks twice and thrice before buying anything.

– I think: do I really need that?

After the program, things have gone well for Margareta, even though she has problems with one of the debt collection companies. The budget has been well followed, and Margareta has even managed to reduce the thousand Swedish kroner that would go towards food costs, and she can use the extra pennies that are left over, for example, to pay for expensive petrol.

– I don’t shop spontaneously anymore. It feels great.

“Seek help in good time and don’t let it go too far”

Reactions after the episode came out have only been positive, both from family and co-workers.

– I was actually surprised that they reacted so positively, I didn’t think so.

Going forward, Margareta’s main goal is to pay off all her loans, and it feels all the closer now that she has managed to get an extra job.

Do you have any advice for anyone else in a similar position?

– These SMS loans are dangerous. They shouldn’t be allowed to exist. You don’t read everything, I can admit that I didn’t either, says Margareta and continues:

– Think before you click on that link, because it will actually be paid back. If you notice that you cannot repay, seek help in good time and do not let it go too far.

She also thinks that those who find themselves in financial trouble should not be afraid to submit an application to Lyxfällan, and take help from the economists Magdalena Kowalczyk and Magnus Hedberg.

– You shouldn’t be ashamed to apply there. I have no regrets, I have mostly gained from this, concludes Margareta Lindholm.
