What is Usury? | 10 Percent Is Enough
Usury is the practice of overcharging borrowers. It has been prohibited by religious, legal, moral, and social codes since the beginning of recorded human history. Both the Hebrew Bible and the Qu’ran are unequivocal in their condemnation of high interest rates and the people who charge them.

Torabi your buddy is an idiot! Get an approval for more than you are borrowing, example. If you want to buy something that is $2500 ask the store to get an approval for more than $3500. Say they approve you for $5000, then $2500 is only 50% of your availble credit. Which will not lower your score. Fact - If you used more than 75% of any givin credit card it will lower your score 20 points. If they only approve you for $2500 then make you 1st payment $650 which will make your balance less than 75%. You have to get credit to have credit history. Also keep that new credit - card or account over time it will make your score go up with time. No credit = no credit & low score. Hey its a computerized system....workit.
