Double Dose of Credit Card Fraud

   Posted On: July 3, 2014  |    Posted In: Personal Finance 101  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

“I’m sorry, your card has been declined.” “Umm, okay could you try it again?” “I swiped it twice times.

Roommates: A (possible) Financial Nightmare

I strolled into a meeting yesterday to hear a co-worker lament, “and she hadn’t been paying it for two months!” “Hadn’t been paying what?” I inquired “Rent!
