 Debt Slavery: Why Are Americans So Willing to Dig Themselves Deep into Debt
Debt Slavery: Why Are Americans So Willing to Dig Themselves Deep into Debt
Just two generations ago, America was a nation of mostly thrifty people living within their means, even setting money aside for unforeseen expenses.

Today, Americans carry $2.56 trillion in consumer debt, up 22 percent since 2000 alone, according to the Federal Reserve Board. The average household’s credit card debt is $8,565, up almost 15 percent from 2000. picked by BWallaby 3 years ago

 Citibank falls for Nigerian Bank Scam
Citibank falls for Nigerian Bank Scam
Citibank should use TARP $$ to educate their employees to the level of a 6th grader. Finding most individuals can spot a Nigerian scam a mile away, some turned to scamming the banks. They sent in money transfers and gave names of people for the bank to verify. Citibank didn't bother contacting names on file or using some common sense and called the criminals to verify they weren't criminals. picked by 2manyusernames 3 years ago

 Couple in MA selling debt on EBay
Couple in MA selling debt on EBay
They are both out of a job with a 2 year old and a mortgage. They are selling their debt in $10.00 chunks. Buyers will get a thank you note and a photo of the family.

The original auction listing was removed by EBay, but was relisted here - probably with a wording change to make it acceptable.

Debt Help Darling? UK Chancellor’s record breaking £94,000 bill for every family.
By the government’s own budget figures, the current national debt per family rests at an eye popping £65,000 but it’s set to rise to a bed wetting £94,000 by 2014. This sharply contradicts the claim by Alistair Darling who forecast in the budget that the deficit would reach £175bn this year, or 12.4% of GDP this year, falling to 11.9% in 2010. picked by iamamaniac 2 years ago
