This is a classic. He owns a BMW, has credit card debt, and borrowed from his 401K to pay down consumer debt.

Talk about sheer stupidity.

The problem with most Americans today is that they do not live within their means. You have got to realize that everyone cannot drive a BMW. What's wrong with a Saturn?
I have no sympathy with people like this. They are getting what they deserve.

What a total idiot. Just gotta have that Beemer, don'tcha? Here's a novel idea: stop spending money! That way ya won't have to tap into the 401k. If you don't have the cash to buy something, then stop throwing it on a credit card...duh!! And btw, having only 20 grand in your 401k at the age of 40 is a pretty sad statement.

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 ( http://goo.gl/OfrBxM ) too my friends and family.
