    Interesting story.... in short, the credit card companies jack up your rates if you use your credit card to purchase things they consider "risky".

    CompuCredit has based these credit line reductions on an undisclosed “behavioral” scoring model that penalized consumers for using their cards for certain types of transactions, including transactions touted in their solicitation materials such as cash advances and transactions with the following types of merchants
    • Direct marketing merchants
    • Marriage counselors
    • Personal counselors
    • Automobile tire retreading and repair shops
    • Bars and night clubs
    • Pool and billiard establishments
    • Pawn shops
    • Massage parlors.

    Used to have a whole string of them. I don't have but one, for emergency. Credit card debt is generally not forgiven after seven years. It's fraud to enslave you. I see people buying beer, cokes and gum and going "credit" in stead of debit. Money changers are still unpopular to this day. It's just usuary.
    Cause reaction solution. Track, trace, and tax. Even the g-string. I love playing with strings.

    One of these days I'll hit a bass note that will wipe them out , and many others will join the band.
