Candorville by Darrin Bell for June 16, 2004
Letter: Dear Lemont Brown, You have been pre-approved for a Platinum Cittobank Vista card, with an introductory A.P.R. of 87.5%. If your payment is more than one day late, you will be charged a fee of $280, which will put you over your credit limit (over-limit fee of $300 will apply) and condemn you to a lifetime of debt and poverty. Lemont: seems reasonable. Letter: By signing here, you agree to surrender to us your immortal soul.
