Well Played, “The Onion.” Well Played.

Here’s a great headline from The Onion, a satirical news paper:  Visa Exposed As Massive Credit Card Scam.  Here’s a quote:

“This is criminal behavior of the most vile sort,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a press conference following the arrests, estimating that one in three Americans have fallen for the scam since its inception in the 1970s. “By masquerading as a legitimate business, this illicit syndicate was able to prey on helpless citizens for decades, charging unfathomable interest rates on the order of 15, 20, even 30 percent or more. It’s staggering. Nobody could afford that.”

“The actions of the Visa crime ring amount to nothing less than mass extortion,” Holder continued. “Anyone who’s holding a Visa card has most likely already been ripped off.”
