Predatory Lending Makes Me Angry: TitleMax

Title Max got your real money...

(I'll never get Adsense to work with rants like this.)

Fuck these guys. Fuck them. Predatory lending is a disease of monsters preying on the weak and poor and ignorant. There are genuine reasons someone might need this type of service in an emergency, but this commercial is nothing more than glamorizing pawning the title of your vehicle with the beauty of money money money and mo money. I'm a pretty brilliant person and even I don't know exactly what that would entail, but smart enough to know that this is a dangerous trap.

So, fuck Title Max. Spread the word.

I agree. We have these "payday loans" companies in Canada too. They can trap people in a vicious cycle of debt at outrageous interest rates. We have some legislation to curb their worst excesses but in my opinion, it doesn't go anywhere near far enough.
