bond scam

Thought this was an interesting article:

He talks about how bonds that have options in them are usually a bad deal for the buyer. The interest rate on them has to be quite significantly higher before it's a better deal than a simple n-year bond.

Re: bond scam

"the government gets to decide whether to pay you your $100K back and owe you nothing"

Why would anyone fall for that?

May we live in peace and harmony and be free from all human sufferings.
