First Premier Bank: Shove your 79.9% APR Credit Card.

by J. Money on Thursday, October 15, 2009

I know this economy ain’t the greatest, but pushing 79.9% interest rates? Come on now, that’s just f*cked up. Would YOU sign up to such an asinine credit card? Would you hand one out to your kids or own mother? I doubt it. Whether people are falling for it or not, you can’t feel good taking advantage of people like that. I’ll send some prayers your way, you’re gonna need ’em…

You guys find unbelievable 79,9% APR? What do you guys tell me then of an average 200% APR!? Yes! TWO HUNDRED percent!

Crazy? Illegal? Immoral?….

This is the average APR credit card companies charge in Brazil.
