The article said there were insurance costs built in, which I'm sure weren't expressed in any kind of published interest rate. So they would have had to do the math on their own, if that's what you meant by "check."

Well, they admitted that they didn't read the contract. Probably didn't even ask a basic question like "what's the interest rate going to be?" And they had previously taken a loan against their 401(k) and got hit with a big tax bill.

I'm weeping no tears for them.
