Go with a big bank like Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Chase and get a secured card. Stay away from these devils.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from FP, and Credit One. Go with Cap1 secured.

OMG run for the hills!!!!! Run fast and don't ever look back! I can't say enough how you should stay away from these vultures. Good grief! Take the advice of everyone that posted prior to me. A secured card from a local credit union will do you beautifully. I wish I'd known about NFCU's secured card prior to applying for and obtaining a First Premier card. 55% APR????? Really???? Just run.
