I woke up around 3 am this morning. The tv was tuned to some random channel I don't remember switching to. There was an infomercial for some tv televangelist named Peter Popoff running. It was full of testimonials from what seemed like ordinary people saying that after they sent away for his free "miracle spring water" all of their debts were miraculously forgiven. Student loan debt, personal debt, IRS debt... 100s of dollars, thousands of dollars, tens of thousands of dollars of debt erased simply by sending away for his free spring water. Then there were the crippled people whom he touched who suddenly were moving like backup dancers for Beyonce. I looked him up on wikipedia and he's been exposed as a cheat and a fraud numerous times. So how does he get back on tv when he's a known scam artist who rips off gullible consumers? As someone who has racked up some debt over the years, the people who lent me the money aren't so generously forgiving.
