A real pit fall!

We tried to upload a picture of an Xbox360 game bundle,but I’m sure you know what they look like. Beware,the one we are looking at is a time bomb ready to hurt someone!!!!

In this economic climate and at this time of year every parent begins to think about”what can I do for my children”. Well,a national lease to own retailer has the answer. Although you cannot afford a large cash outlay for a game bundle,they will help you fulfill your childs dream. For a mere $15 a week they will tie you into a “lease -to-own” contract over a period of two years before you own it.The idea is that you will purchase this on payments. NOW,HERE’S THE BOMB——— this same bundle that sells at other high end retailers for less than $450 tax in,will only cost you $1560 thru this lease to own firm.Now here is the real topper,this firm also runs a financial service where you can borrow money for a small A.P.R of 46.5%. If you were to borrow cash from thier financial arm, you could buy the same bundle for under $625.

Be sure to read all print even if you have to buy a magnifying glass to do so!!!!


Mission Statement?

I started this blog out of frustration about the dealings by retailers and our governments.

some of them are questionable at best and border on illegal at worst.

While I was An ivalid due to surgery, I had no choice but to watch more television and read more papers than I ever have. What I saw and read was frightening!!!!

I sat down to start this blog to try and high-lite the worst issues and stumbled thru a couple of blogs only to realize that this was so this was so prevasive that I reached out for help.

We now consist of 6 people covering a wide range of lifestyles. We are all retired!!

We cover a span from a retired judge to a retired railway worker.

We sit down and look at issues that we feel that could affect the public in adverse ways.

And the results and costs of such effects.

A backward start ,but we vow to strive to make this a site that you will want to come back to. 

news flash

Bell is taking another run at Astral. By making another bid,it must be presented to the C.R.T.C again.No consideration for cost to tax payers.

Don’t let them!!! If they succeed it will end up as higher costs and lower service standards.

They have already reduced service to basic subscribers. Three of the basic channels have been changed to pay-per-vue and 50 showings of I-5 killer this year or reruns of 90210, constant replays of The Preditor or Terminator series are a little much!!!

Though if you pay attention, they are aggresively pushing thier pay-per- vue channels!!

scary truths about your money.

scary truths about your money.

Due to the fact that I was ivalided for a couple of months I was able to pay more attention to rip=offs that affect us every day.The worst offenders are retail,Online sales and our own governments.
I will endeavor to post some exposures each day.
I will also try to investagate any concerns you may forward,
