The rates they charge on these credit cards are akin to daylight robbery.

Tony Blair's let himself go....... :shock:

Having said which, I support any attempt to give a sense of worth back to the homeless - we must never allow ourselves to be blinded to those who need help by those keen to exploit it. :thumbup:

Have you seen the APR for the catalogue companies which are used by the poor to buy things on credit?

The buy to rent companies final price if you buy via them?

The poorest are really hit the hardest. Even on income support I made sure I put money aside each week but I was lucky, I was not on a coin in the slot meter so paying far more for my energy needs and did not have any children.

And do not tell me they can afford a smartphone and sky tv. Having an old smart phone might be the only way they can connect to the internet which is needed more and more these days. And having a sky dish does not mean they still watch sky. Or they entered into a contract before disaster hit the household.

Puzzled at the linking of the Homeless World Cup in Cardiff with high cost credit. If you're really homeless you won't get any kind of credit. :)

Loans you couldn't repay and then lost everything including the roof over your head. Understand? It happens a lot more often than most people think.
