Scam tips on the metro bus

Thanks, Laredo-Webb Neighborhood Housing Services! I’m not sure if they had to pay for this Public Service Announcement but it at least it is not a useless ad for lawyers with boxing gloves or blurry food. At least there is information for people to actually take in.

Now if only there were warnings about these loan companies. They aren’t scams but predatory lending which can be just as bad. The lending companies that also loan you money against the title of your car are making money hand over fist from people who can ill afford it. Check out this strip on Chihuahua Street:

CRAZY! Oh, and one will also take your gold – ay, ay, ay!

    Sanguijuelas = Leeches (in Spanish)

    Because I had never seen it written out, I always heard a “d” in there as if they were sandy 😛 but sangui makes so much sense. Sangre, blood.

    I hadn’t noticed all those loan companies grouped together in that space. That’s sick. Hey, south Laredo is getting a new Buffalo Pawn. The sign hasn’t gone up yet, but the building’s design looks like it.

      By coincidence, I just came from mtg the construction manager there. Zertuche Construction is building it and yes, it is a Bufalo Pawn. When I was in San Antonio this past weekend, I saw a pretty new looking one there too. I don’t begrudge anyone their success in business but… there is still an ick factor to making money from those in financial need.
