What’s in my mail box

During those days when Ethan was down, I did not even go out to the mail box to check what’s in there. However, after only a couple of days, these was what I found in there…

Piles of junks, bills and more bills.

But lately, when we receive anything from the bank it is not so much of the bills anymore BUT lots  of pre-approved personal loans. What do you think of this kind of approach by the banks to quietly sneak in some small loans disguising them as easy cash for your personal leisure? 

I’d say, just shred them to pieces if you are going to ignore them as if you don’t and if somebody actually bank-in those cheques, you are going to be answerable for the interest charged!

    oh ya.. nowadays banks started doing this ya… sending 'loan' cheques via mail…

  • //

  • //

    Ya, I did receive "cheques" and calls from the banks to offer me preapproved loans. Seems like their approach are kind of desperate huh:)

  • //

    LOL i dunno anything about this, i never check mail box one. lol. but SO SIEN one if like dat. :S

  • //

    I received those cheque from Citibank with my name and the amount too. Shred and throw!!

  • //

    I think those people at the banks are getting desperate in using sneaky ways to get people to agree to using so-called free money. Nothing in this world is free. The cheque they enclose in the mail is not like you don't have to pay them back. Those marketing gimmicks are getting stale.

  • //

    WHAT??? They send that? I will go to the bank and make a scene if I get any!!! Cilaka!!! Last time, they used to call…but long time, no more. So desperate for money kah these people!!!

    Hubs and I never received such cheques. This is really too much already.

  • //

    well, i get those pre-approved cheques a few times, and i didn't bother to bank in because it's just a gimmick.if it's interest free never mind la :) – yeah, if it's my grandfather's bank, maybe can.

    Yea when I received the 'cheque' my first time, I was surprised… Then upon further checking only I found out it's a trick by the banks! Dangerous man..

  • //

    ya nowadays received cheques and plenty calls from banker too. I saw a good way to "shoo" those caller from a drama. Caller: Ms XXX you need $$ to clear your debt or you can get personal loan for expand your business. Receiver: Sure, I wanna borrow 1 billion.Caller: huh…1 billionReceiver: Oh you can't borrow me such amount?? So end the conversation…..tu..tu…tu..
