WHAT EVERY CREDIT CARD USER SHOULD KNOW
Review by Leslie on 03/17/22 review stating WHAT EVERY CREDIT CARD USER SHOULD KNOW
Outstanding, revealing inside look at the unimaginable greed and deceptive, often downright unlawful practices of this sector of the financial services industry. Thanks to Frontline for exposing the dark side of the everyday world of credit card use and debt. This outrageous practice MUST be at least partially responsible for our current (Fall 2008) economic crisis. And now these greedmongers want US to rescue THEM. Frontlines documentary here, with all of the abuses it exposes, should be used as an example of what the government on behalf of its citizens will NOT allow these financial institutions to get away with any longer, nor ever again.
