WASHINGTON (AP) – Capital One Bank is paying $165 million to settle charges that it pressured credit card customers to buy costly add-on services like payment protection and credit monitoring.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said Wednesday that Capital One call-center workers told customers the products were free, misled them about the benefits and let people think the services were required to hold a card.

The CFPB says Capital One will refund about $140 million to 2 million customers and pay $25 million in penalties.

The order against Capital One is the first enforcement action by the CFPB since it was set up a year ago.

The agency was created under the Obama administration’s financial overhaul law to protect consumers from excessive or hidden fees and other financial threats.

If you're feeling really brave:
"CREDIT-DEFAULT SWAPS
I recommend buying credit-default swaps (CDSs) on financial guarantee companies (such as Ambac (NYSE: ABK)),
as well as PMI (NYSE: PMI), MGIC Investment Corp. (NYSE: MTG), Radian (NYSE: RDN), and XL Capital (NYSE: XL).
All of these companies are
double or triple A rated financial institutions that have taken on ...al distress at some
point in the future. The best way to profit from this scenario is to invest a very small part of one's portfolio
(perhaps 5% of total capital over the entire life of the
contract) in five-year CDSs. If a credit event doesn't occur, one only loses 5%, but if one does, profits could exceed 20 times the original investment."

Why you need to talk to an attorney and accountant. This is my understanding about what you are asking.
Parent to child transfers are considered gifts whose value is applied against your fathers estate at the time of his death. Yes by 'gifting' this property to you his tax basis will be lockin. However, when you sell the property the likelyhood is that you will have a larger capital gains ...he parent/child property transfer. And you can get a general sale/purchase agreement from your local office supply store.
The implications of either of these actions have some very serious consequenses that you really need to understand for the financial stability of both you and your father. That is why I suggested that you seek out an attorney and understand the larger tax implications.

Unusual Pledge


John W. Schoen
Senior producer
August 9, 2011
The Federal Reserve's highly unusual promise — to keep interest rates low for "at least" the next two years — comes as the panicky global financial markets are looking for reassuring measures from ...ies banking analyst Richard Bove.
"That paper in essence loses its value if you downgrade Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or the United States government debt. Therefore, you're reducing the capital availability to the banks because you're reducing the size of their assets."
Then there's Europe, where the banking system is still suffering the hangover from a decade-long borrowing binge.

I like a good editorial burn:


President Bush is like a financial adviser who tells you that at the rate you're going, you won't be able to afford retirement - but that you shouldn't do anything mundane like trying to save more. Instead, you should take out a huge loan, put the money in a mutual fund run by his friends (with management fees to be determined later) and place your faith in capital gains.
That, once...accounts lots of stocks while buying lots of government bonds.
So privatizers are in effect asserting that politicians are smart - they know that stocks are a much better investment than bonds - while private investors are stupid, and will swap their valuable stocks for much less valuable government bonds. Isn't such an assertion very peculiar coming from people who claim to trust markets?
