On the Things That Credit Cards Can't Buy

#5 was a hilarious.  I never knew there was a service for that.

 

Love to hear a Weird Al parody of the Tube's What Do You Want From Life on this.

Nice to know these things.  I like the fact that one major player plead the fifth on Marijuana.

There's a company that operates kiosks and ATM's in casinos (Global Cash Access, AKA Everi) that will let you advance your entire credit limit without a cash advance PIN for a fee. In theory, I could take my BoA cash rewards card and turn it into almost $30K in less than 5 minutes. Common sense keeps me from doing that, but there are a lot of people out there who have stupidly done this.

Wow.  I wonder if someone ever went FICO rogue and opened up bunch of credit cards, did this and split the country.  LOL I think BofA has a team that will travel the world and hunt them down or maybe a credit bounty hunter, mobile collection agencies if you will.
