THE card for poor credit

Quite apart from being mortally insulted by receiving this unsolicited e-shot I find it incredible that people with a poor credit rating are being offered £500 instantly with a 34.9% APR – and the encouragement that if they can make just 4 payments on time – this will be increased to £3000.
My first assumption was that this was some kind of delayed April Fool – but no.
Whilst dentists are filling forms in for the CQC to make sure that they have policies and procedures for events that will never happen – this ‘bank’ is allowed to drag financially immature victims further down into a spiralling pit of misery.
Rant over.
