Pretty interesting video on the CC industry's roots in Sioux Falls, SD, and Wilmington, DE, and how it is getting away with increasing fees and interest rates and otherwise shafting and deceiving the consumer. Cool interviews too with both good and slimy people in charge. Use them wisely! Be a pay-in-full deadbeat and reap the rewards and convenience -- don't let yourself get shafted! (That's what student loans are for.)
