The bottom line is that if you insist on spending money you don't have you are at the mercy of the people who do have it. Thus it was, and thus it always shall be.

While I agree with what you are saying, it is STILL not the point of the article. Do you think credit card companies should be allowed to act in the ways described by the article?

What do you think is the purpose, from the customer's point of view, of the credit limit - if it is not to be used as a credit limit?

These are really strange reactions on this board. A little surprising that the customer should be the one attacked in the posts rather than the credit card company who is actually using them.

I sometimes despair.
