Bad advice. They'll lure you in, then slash your line, leaving you with an early account closure fee if you try to take your business elsewhere because of their deceptive tactics.

Why not just live within your means and pay cash?

Using credit from the banks can create a downward financial spiral because of their excessive fees and outrageous rates.

Too much of this kind of 'advice' is what caused the mess were in now!

And DON'T go to banks, if you can help it. They are crooks and snake oil salesmen, as the current debacle is exposing to all. They're just looking for any sneaky way to get their claws into you, specially now that they're hurting so bad. Credit unions are the ONLY way to go, even if you don't get the 'best deal'.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( ) too my friends and family.
