APR 76.9%!

This place caught my eye today–at first I couldn’t believe the APR of 79.6%, then I thought at least they were stating it openly.  In fact, there are some much higher APRs on their website.

'Think again!', depending on how desperate you are

I also couldn’t decide whether the notice announcing the languages spoken was a sweet attempt to be helpful or a sign of determination to exploit new arrivals.

Lietuvių ‘must be’ Lithuanian, since ‘Litva’ is Russian for Lithuania.  Why Slovak and not Czech?  Probably because the Czech Republic is more prosperous, so there are fewer migrants here–Lithuania is supposed to be the poorest state in the EU (in terms of people’s incomes) so that makes sense.

Cosmopolitan or what?
