Capital One: New Reasons to Borrow

I've written about how I perceive lender, Capital One, as the Devil Incarnate. Capital One is willing to lend anyone money for anything, and has innumerable tricks up their sleeve to screw you.

Myfanwy emailed me yesterday about some new ways to screw you! What about a baby? They do ivf. Isn't that what you want to finance at 23.99% over five years? What about new breasts? Also a specialty of Capital One. I'm not surprised.

We were discussing what exactly makes us squeamish about this. Capital One is bad to begin with. But Capital One seems to have very cozy relationships with medical folks. You could certainly perceive that Capital One was something other than a predatory lender when your doctor refers you to them for financing.
