I have been applying for credit, even though I know I will have to pay high fees due not being able to pay on 3 credit cards in the past year, because of financial problems. An 18 wheeler hit me in 01/04 and I'm on disability now and in section 8 housing.
Just a couple of months ago I recieved a Visa in the mail with over 200.00 in all different kinds of fees, but atleast I could charge about 75.00 on it. It helped for paying my electric bill that month.
When I got this in the mail today, I was aware of all the costs, but thought somehow I could make it work by using the things in the catalouge. I even took 1/2 of my Social Security check and was figuring on paying the 300.00 per month that it stated would be my minimum monthly payment.
I was so excited to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even buying things that my friends needed and they could give me the cash for food, gasoline, and electricity. I always have the money for rent and phone.
The more I thought about it, somehow my "gut feeling" got the best of me and I started reading it about 5 times. I was almost ready to call to activate it, when I wanted to try to go on line and try to "see" exactly what they sold in their catalouge.
After about an hour it brought my to ripoffreport.com. I couldn't believe what I was reading. I was stunned. I almost fell for this sleazy scam. I was so repulsed, I almost threw up.
It's just not right how this could be happening.
THANK YOU so much for your site. You have saved me additional aggrivation than what I already suffer. I don't know how to thank you, exept that if you ever need my input for further action, I would be more than happy to be involved.
If you can, please keep me posted as to whether or not the people who have actually lost money have been able to recoop their losses.
Wishing everyone sees your site BEFORE losing any money and may God bless everyone today & always,
