Credit Curveballs

Patriot-News (Harrisburg, PA), Tuesday, June 29, 2010


“…Provisions of the (USA federal) Credit CARD Act of 2009 started in February, (was intended to provide)  relief for millions of consumers from card companies’ predatory practices.”

However: “Card issuers are on the prowl for newer and more innovative ways to land a profit on users’ accounts, experts say…  ‘They’re very good at the letter of the law, just not the spirit of the law,’ said Ken Lin, EEO of, a website that tracks card activity.”

A pitcher throws a curveball to a batter in a baseball game.  It is a difficult/deceptive ball to hit.  The ball veers/strays from the course.
