Most people are living within their means. It's just that the credit card companies are trying to soak them for every dime that they are losing because they are stupid and give obscene amounts of credit to people who they should KNOW aren't going to be able to pay it back.

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.
