Misleading Advertising

A selection of the most recent crop.

About 15 minutes after my loan closed, I started getting all sorts of official looking documents from various banks and insurance companies.  A few of them were actually important documents.  But none of the docs you see here, of course, are actually important.  They are crappy advertisements.  That appear to me to be designed to trick folks into thinking they are actually part of their loans, or maybe even state required products that you have to purchase.  I’m not sure they go far enough as to be false advertising, but they really don’t sit right with me.

Important notice to me!  Complete and return!

Ok, if you say so.

Or not.  It even lists my lender, see how it is all shady trying to give itself some sort of air of importance?

I’m not buying it, folks.  Specifically I am not buying your random life insurance product now just because I have a mortgage.

THIS JUST IN: IF I DIE, Y’AL CAN HAVE THE HOUSE.  I’ll be dead.  I won’t need it.

  BULLSHIT!  Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit!

Accidents are unpredictable, bullshitter, but your reasoning kind of falls apart after that.

This message has been brought to you by people against bullshit life insurance companies trying to sell you their bullshit products.  Also, if you want actual decent advice about mortgages and life insurance, you should go see what Clark Howard has to say about it.

    • I hope people know enough to NOT buy their life insurance through the mail, but rather by consulting with a fee-per-hour professional who isn’t making a commission on your sale or banking on your terrifying fear as a new homeowner/debt-haver, but I’m sure people buy. If I die, I’m putting it in my will, Mary Brett or her designee is to list and sell my house! Mortgage, dealt with.
