Credit Card Mafia, American Greed at its Best: Credit Card Lies & Deceit

I have a Discover credit card, which I always pay on time. Yet I recently noticed they had been calling me about something. I assumed they just wanted to sell me some service I didn’t want. However upon answering the phone to speak briefly with Discover credit card, I had some fun with the credit card company’s phone rep / sales agent.

The credit card agent obviously was recording the conversation as I could here the beeping in the background. I immediately turned on my phone recording device also and told the credit card rep I too would be recording the conversation. Immediately and fearfully the credit card rep from Discover said, “I do not authorize you to record the c onversation.”

I said, “Nor do I authorize you to record me.” The cowardly and deceptive credit card rep told me, “I cannot confirm that this conversation is being recorded.” I assured him it was as I could hear Discover card’s phone recording device beeping.

Nevertheless I asked the rep what he was calling about. “Oh, we have an opportunity for you. We want to reduce your interest rate.”

“Well then,” I told Discover credit card’s rep, “please do so.”

“But we can’t unless you make twelve monthly payments in advance.” the credit card rep said.

“Well that won’t be happening. Goodbye and stop calling my house.”

Basically, credit cards are in a crunch like everybody else throughout the country and are feeling the pinch. Hence they are endeavoring to seduce people to pay up early, months in advance, after which they will immediately cancel their credit lines, or reduce their credit limit drastically according to the remaining amount owed.

That being said, beware and don’t give credit cards your money. It is far better to keep your cash and savings than to give it to them.

As a debt arbitrator who deals with credit card companies, if you get a third party who knows the ins and outs of the credit card business, you will have a huge advantage and can even save yourself thousands of dollars. If you are in over your head with a credit card company, before you fall for their bait and switch and get taken advantage of financially and put yourself more in harms way in this turbulent economy,  you owe it to yourself to hire a professional who can help you.

Email me stating exactly how much you owe and if you hire me to help you, I will only take a percentage of what I can save you with the credit card company.

Jessica Alba Puts Bill O’Reilly in His Place, Jessica Alba Levels Shock Jock Bill O’Reilly

Jessica Alba puts Bill O’Reilly in his place. Jessica Alba levels shock jock Bill O’Reilly.

Controversy king Bill O’Reilly put his foot in his mouth with Jessica Alba, insinuating the movie star Jessica Alba was dumb on his show. Bill O’Reilly’s show had a segment that focused on Jessica Alba’s intelligence (or alleged lack thereof). More on Bill O’Reilly and Jessica Alba’s feud below.

Jessica Alba has employed the power of the net, using her Celebrity MySpace blog to defend herself over accusations made by Bill O’Reilly and TMZ.com that she is dumb.

When a reporter approached Jessica Alba at an inauguration event for President Obama, Jessica tried to turn the tables on him by asking him what Barack Obama’s greatest characteristic was. When the reporter said he felt uncomfortable answering because he is a journalist, Alba replied, “be neutral – be Sweden about it.”

TMZ.com later called her a “ditz” and an “arrogant buffoon” for saying Sweden instead of Switzerland when referring to the neutral country during WWII.

Certainly both countries historically have remained quite neutral in global affairs when wars and conflict are involved, preferring the more play it safe role.

Yet Bill O’Reilly – whom Alba had called a lower part of one’s backside anatomy, at the same event – called her “misguided” for mixing up the countries. As if he’s never made any mistakes. Leave it to Bill O’Reilly amid desperation of having lost so many viewers since the election of President Obama to stoop to the lowest levels to try to regain viewers. Many news broadcasters say most of America has wised up and stopped watching O’Reilly a long time ago, as his biased journalism and slamming of guests is not kosher. Some say the pompous Fox News host should retire before he causes himself more shame and irrepairable harm.

But on her blog, Alba writes, “I find it depressing that, in the midst of perhaps the most salient time in our country’s history, individuals are taking it upon themselves to encourage negativity and stupidity.

“Last week, Mr. Bill O’Reilly and some really classy sites (i.e. TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country.”

“I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people… it’s so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland.”

She then linked to a wikipedia article to prove Sweden was also a neutral country.

Jessica Alba sarcastically added, “I appreciate the name calling and the accurate reporting. Keep it up!!”

Many think this is another lame attempt of Bill O’Reilly to cause controversy, while simultaneously causing himself harm and making himself look foolish. Fox News probably won’t pull O’Reilly’s program from their network …controversy sells and is popular in America.

At least TMZ.com repented of the error of their ways in a blog post vindicating Jessica Alba: “She is absolutely correct. Sweden was a neutral country … 60 years ago. We apologize for not considering the political climate of the world in 1942 when we suggested she may have meant, ‘Be Switzerland’ — a country that is currently neutral.”

No apology is expected from Bill O’Reilly, the Fox News hero who some religious right supporters think may be a bit self-righteous.

Hats off to Jessica Alba for standing up to O’Reilly! Besides if you live by the sword, you must die by it too! At the very least, the sword must cut both ways.
