BILLS! BILLS! DAMN BLASTED BILLS!

Check out Bob Sullivan’s, “Gotcha Capitalism: How Hidden Fees Rip You Off Everyday“.
Companies have spent a long time investing billions of dollars on extensive research, learning just how to confuse us and take away our rights to a fair deal. This book will highlight their crafty methods and strategies we can implement to reclaim both our hard-earned dough and fundamental rights to a fair deal. Ballantine books writes:

Coughing up $4 fees for ATM transactions.
Iron-clad cell phone contracts you can’t get out of with a crowbar.
Paying big bucks for insurance you don’t need on a rental car or forking over $20 a day for supposedly “free” wireless internet.

Every day we use banks, cell phones, and credit cards. Every day we book hotels and airline tickets. And every day we get ripped off.  How? Here are just a few examples of how big business can get you:

• You didn’t fill up the rental car with gas?
Gotcha! Gas costs $7 a gallon here.
• Your bank balance fell to $999.99 for one day?
Gotcha! That’ll be $12.
• You miss one payment on that 18-month same-as-cash loan?
Gotcha! That’ll be $512 extra.
• You’re one day late on that electric bill?
Gotcha! All your credit cards now have a 29.99% interest rate.”
