PREDATORY MARKETING and the Vulnerable in Society

Submitted by Cherfleur

Courts (Barbados) Ltd aka Unicomer is offering Cash Loans at THIRTY PERCENT interest.

How are they doing it and to whom?

Courts advertises in the Classifieds section with the entreaty of waiving the payments for six months if and when the customer is made redundant. Naturally the who are the young vulnerable teen mothers, most of whom are in the Informatics Industry in the Harbour industrial Park.

It’s a wretched pipeline, like the ‘cradle to grave’ one in USA. Desperate to acquire much needed items on a subsistence wage, this group of the population in this sector is easy prey to such predatory practices and false marketing.

Crucible recently laid off a second batch of employees for this year. In June they advised the Labour Department that they lost a Contract and was forced to sever employees but that the amount was less than the 10% that would require Union/Labour Department Consultation. I would hope that Mr Mayers of the Labour Department investigate to ascertain whether Crucible lost another Contract in this half of the year or it is the same Contract they are now relieving more employees from. Working the loop holes of the Law (perhaps not).

Whatever the situation these employees are now on the bread line and some of them who had these treacherous loans from Courts approached the firm and applied to get the waiver only to be told by the floor Representatives that they do not know or never heard of such offerings. FALSE ADVERTISING.

So unemployed and cash strapped these vulnerable ladies have to cough up much needed dollars to service these illegal loans.

Courts is not licensed to lend money’ or are they? Nevertheless 30% is Usury. The Banks and Credit Unions are being had by Courts.

Attempts to reach the Director, Consumer Finance or the Marketing Manager went unanswered.

30 RASSHOLE percent!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY.

    “Question remains …. can rich people be vulnerable?”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Here is the answer to your unanswerable question:

    “For we brought nothing into the world, and neither can we carry anything out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these.…”

    Now isn’t that ‘Communism’, the great leve(l)ler at its richest ‘perfect’ best?

    Please be respectful in your responses.

    As previously said, I don’t “do” video (way too low bandwidth for me).

    Editorial Reviews
    Review
    “The second hottest book in America: Socialism Sucks…. This is a fascinating book. One of the things I like about your book is that it’s readable for the people who need to read it, like millennials. Like leftists. Like Democrats running for the President of the United States.” Mark Levin, host, The Mark Levin Show, Life, Liberty & Levin on Fox News, and #1 best selling author.

    “What a captivating idea Socialism Sucks embraces! A worldwide tour guide written in plain English by two high-end economists. An invasion of the world’s most highly regulated hot spots where they can’t even efficiently produce or distribute something as simple and lovable as beer. A down-to-earth, almost fable-like lesson showing socialism’s failures for all the world to see. And it even has some sidesplitting hilarity thrown in. I knew these guys were great; but I didn’t know this side of them. Buy this book. Give it to your children and grandchildren, and to anyone who touts the nonsense–now fashionable in some American circles–that government power somehow produces more happiness than personal liberty.” (Judge Andrew Napolitano Fox News)

    “Professors Robert Lawson and Benjamin Powell do a yeomen’s job in proving that socialism sucks, the apt title for their new book. They show why there’s no stampede into countries like Venezuela and Cuba and other socialist darlings of the U.S. leftists. What’s more, over a couple of drinks, Lawson and Powell prove that Sweden is not as socialistic as portrayed by our leftists.” (Walter E. Williams professor of economics, George Mason University)

    “What is ‘socialism’? And do countries that overindulge in it wake up with bad hangovers? You bet they do. Robert Lawson and Benjamin Powell give you the hair-of-the-dog cure. They provide a dose of political economy knowledge mixed with an understanding of the bene ts of economic freedom, add a strong dash of humor, and top it off with a cold beer. Have a Bob & Ben Eye-Opener and you’ll feel like (and live in a place where you can make) a million dollars!” (P.J. O’Rourke author of #1 New York Times bestseller Parliament of Whores)
