Emmy's patriotic anti-student-loans rant is beautiful. EMMY FOR PRESIDENT.

I almost got swindled into a pyramid scheme of selling perfumes when I was 18 years old. Even then in the meeting when they were telling me how I'd have my own store if I sold enough, I knew it was shit, and discovered that this is probably where the knock-off perfume kiosks in the mall come from.

I actually got schemed out of some money when I was bedridden with flu/pneumonia and was fever high and had no idea what I agreed to on the phone. I couldn't cancel whatever weird service I signed up for that took $10 a month out of my bank account, my bank wouldn't stop the transactions from happening, so I just closed my account and went to a new bank. Cut 'em off at the source.

I just found out my roommate had to do something similar. She cancelled her health insurance in January, sent emails, phone calls, mailed paperwork and they've charged her over a thousand dollars. She had the bank cancel any charges they make now they are sending her collection fees because they can't change her account. It's insane.

I had a roommate who tried to sell me 'premium speakers' which were actually the knock-off kind people try to sell you from the back of their vans. The story of how he got them (his friend worked in an electronics store that was closing, so they gave him electronics instead of pay) didn't really hold up under questioning, and when I googled the brand name a lot of red flags came up. What kind of idiot tries to scam the person who is going to be living next to you for the foreseeable future? Of course he never sold them and even left them behind when he got evicted.

I was also briefly involved in a ponzi scheme online. A website was promising impossible returns on an ad-clicking business. One member was offering $10 to anyone who would sign up under his referral. So I signed up and invested like $8 and sure enough, next week the US Department of Justice shut the website down. So I made $2 or so...

Growing up in a city, you get used to ignoring people coming at you with flyers or weird stories asking for money.

Loved the show. You are all wrong on one issue though.

Go to translate.google.com, English on the left, Spanish on the right. Then type in seedless in the left box.
