for Cashcall - Have you seen these?

The fine print that flashes across the screen is:
"The APR for a typical loan of $2,600 is 99.25% with 42 monthly payments of $216.55."
For a whopping total of $9,095.10.

I thought there were usury laws or something to prevent this kind of thing.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Yeah, it's a rip off.

Funny story about how he became the face of Cash Call. My cousin actually works for them and found out the scoop about Gary Coleman. He actually owed money to them and couldn't pay them back. He talked to the owner directly and said that he would forget about the debt if he did commercials. :p

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

It just follows the old saying, "Desperate times calls for desperate measures."

Yup, you have to do whatever it takes sometimes.

Emmanuel Lewis was on Surreal Life, but haven't heard much about him.
