I’m still disgusted that Google invested in LendUp, a predatory loan shark organization that takes advantage of people’s desperation or lack of financial knowledge to make usury loans.

Their new “instant money” including the ability to borrow money from your mobile phone so a terrible choice is always tempting and only seconds away continues to show that this company, despite what they say, is not interested in helping people “climb beyond payday loans” (their verbiage).

Also?  If your company on its own site asserts people should move past needing your product because it is irresponsible to use, you’re evil. See also: tobacco. (And the logic of ‘get past needing payday loans’ by getting a 300+% APR payday loan is insane.)
