On credit

I don't do online purchases ever these days or online banking but when moving over onto a different type of current account they suggested that a credit card with a small limit would resolve my fear of "losing everything".

When it was approved the credit limit was so high that I was appalled. I reduced it right down, right away but it is easy to see why people get into financial trouble. Banks encourage frivolous spending imo.

Onlyever done one online purchase, years ago. I simply don't trust the internet, for that stuff.

Jane does, though. Mind you, her card's been cloned. Mine hasn't. :D

I have no idea what my limits are, to be honest. I rarely buy anything that needs a credit card. Just for vet bills, which we're insured for.

I use online services for bill payment, heck I even use EvilBay for purchases. I'm just hoping that these nigerians who want to launder a gazillion dollars pop some into my accounts. So far, no luck!
