Beware of low payment traps

I’m getting tons of these advertisements with weekly payment plans. Just $20 per week!

That’s $80 per month.

You can get the ipad 3 for only 23.99 a week! Total cost = 1871.22

A bunk bed for only 16.99 a week. Total cost = 1546.09

An HP laptop, only $20 per week! Total cost = 2080.00

Seriously?

Oh, and another thing I found out – Don’t go to cakes.com. You’ll get a virus. It is my daughter’s 21st birthday next weekend. I was searching for a cool cake design online at our local jewel, but when I clicked on a design I was on cakes.com. I didn’t think anything of it, except that I could not get the cake I wanted from the store I was searching. That seemed odd. So I called the first bakery on the list. The man who answered the phone went to the website to see the cake I was looking at. His boss yelled at him, saying that they get viruses from that site. Sure enough….

And none of the virus protection caught it. I only got it through scans.

And I’m getting a cool cake at Jewel.

Anyway, be careful out there. There are so many people who will try to take advantage of you.
