NSF

Where and When: 

2013, gas station.

Why is it that although we use money every day, we cannot seem to spend it wisely?

Bottom Line: 

My advice for anyone who has issues with spending? Allot yourself a set amount of money every week, and don’t spend more than that carelessly. Hopefully this will help you avoid a mistake like mine.

Scammed in a Parking Lot

Where and When: 

Arizona 2009

I can’t believe I gave $50 to a random guy. I was leaving the grocery store when a man approached me in the parking lot.

Bottom Line: 

Be cautious of individuals soliciting goods who approach you to support a cause or a company and be careful of sales not in a retail store.

Too Good to be True Gift Cards

Where and When: 

Arizona 2010

I’m so frustrated that I lost $260 to a website selling gift cards that seemed too good to be true. I should have gone with my gut on this one.

Bottom Line: 

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Always check the source of the site before submitting payment.
