The Answer

 

Dear Theresa,

If you are making a $211 payment every two weeks you’ll actually end up making 26 payments in a year rather than 24, which would be two payments a month. This means that your monthly payment averages out to $457 a month.

The purchase price of $11,000 does not sound way out of line but $457 worth of monthly payments for 72 months means you’ll pay back about $33,000.

Something here just doesn’t add up. The interest rate they must be charging you is huge. I’d really appreciate it if you could upload your loan documents for the to see the financing deal. If you can scan them in you can upload them to me here.

Big Hug!
