Thinking of Taking a Loan? Think Twice!
Getting a loan for almost anything is just a phone call away and that is why you need to be extra careful while even thinking about it, you might just end up paying for it with your life.
Even after the Supreme Court has directed banks not to resort to bully tactics for loan recovery, this does not seem to have any affect on them. Every now and then we hear about people taking the extreme step to get freedom from bank recovery agents.
If the banks do not follow the Supreme Court directive then there is pretty much nothing to stop them from doing just about anything they please to fork out money from you.
