Hi all,

I'm here to enlist your help. I'm writing an article about the worst credit card offers that Fools have received -- offers you SHOULD refuse. You know -- 0% balance transfer deals that end after a week and then charge you a 20%+ retroactive interest rate. (Okay, I may be exaggerating on that one.) I would love to hear about any sub-par offers that you've come across. If you can remember the details, the following information would be great:

1. What was the offer exactly -- a lame balance-transfer deal; a "rewards" card that appears to offer no tangible rewards; a really bad deal for a secured credit card, etc.
2. The issuer -- if you remember which company sent it.

Many thanks for any input you can offer.
