For the uninitiated, Clark Howard is a popular consumer expert and host of the nationally syndicated Clark Howard Show.
In any case, this is unbelievable:
Allison: I had a call from an automated voice that said ‘if you’re interested in lowering the interest rate on your credit card, push 9’, so I did. And the more I heard about it, the more I liked– because, we’re unfortunately in a lot of debt…I gave my credit card number, the number on the back, the last four of my social, and my mother’s maiden name.
Clark: Oh my goodness!
Like, don’t do that.
