Credit Card Companies Informative - Bought Scissors With Credit Card

Review by axhandlebill on 2008-02-29
Well, I bought a real good pair of scissors with my credit card and cut up all of my credit cards. Then got a loan for the full amount owed and paid off the high interest rate 19% + cards got an 8% loan and paid it off in 18 mo. I'm free no more calls or nasty letters. But my mail box is full of offers for more credit.....

Right, like I love being harassed and told what to do with my money, not in my lifetime........ Oh yes, I quit smoking too, at a savings of $225.00 Per months ... Times 18 months =$4050.00 Savings. Laughing all the way to the bank.

Have you opted out of the preapproved/prescreened offers? It will significantly reduce the amount of mailers and calls that you receive.. the website is www.optoutprescreen.com.

Downright un-American. LOL


Why do so many of the people who can least afford it give so much of their money away to high interest credit, excessive bank fees, payday loan interest, and instant tax refund scams?

If they could only realize how much more money they could spend on themselves if they would just THINK!

great on the quitting smoking!! here's what I do with all those offers in the mail, if they come with an envelope requiring no postage I write on the offer "PLEASE REMOVE FROM MAIL/CALL LIST" and I mail it back to THEM!! it works.........
