PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Just a warning...

if you're thinking about financing anything through a company called HRS... don't.

I think they also do business as Retail Services, HSBC, and Household International

They are the absolute worst company I have ever dealt with. They are aggressively predatory in their lending. I thought I had just made a mistake, until I checked it out online. There is hopefully going to be a class action suit against them and I think they are being investigated by the BBB if not by legal authorities.

For some background, check this out....
and this...

and this...

We paid our bill online, and then discovered after the due date that they never posted it (over a week later) and they tried (successfully so far) to charge us an enormous amount of money in "late fees" of various types, as well as jacking the interest rate up to 21% immediately. They're extortionists playing with peoples credit rating. I just paid off the entire account just to avoid doing business with them. (Still waiting to see if this payment goes through)

If you go to finance something and they hand you a contract that has HRS anywhere on it, just say no. Unless it's a liver transplant or something, it's probably better to do without it than to borrow money from these mobsters.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
