The bestselling author shows you how to protect your money and put thousands back in your pocket every year by taking on the “corporate machines” who are taking you to the cleaners.In Fight For Your Money, David Bach, our favourite financial guru and consumer advocate, has written the ultimate guide to making smarter financial decisions and protecting yourself from companies who want to separate you from your hard-earned paycheque. Corporations earn billions annually from our financial ignorance. The time has come to fight back! Starting with an A to Z list of items where you are paying too much – your cell phone, cable bill, cars, credit cards, insurance, airfare, hotels and many more – Bach shows how you are being taken. Then the “Fight for Your Money Toolkit” shows you how to fight back, with sample letters, call scripts, and real-life stories of ordinary people who have fought back and won. As David Bach says, “When you are being taken financially, you work harder than you have to, for longer than you need to. When you fight for your money, you keep more of your hard earned paycheque and you spend your life doing what you really want to do.”
To a public weary of investment losses and corporate scandals, David Bach has written a call to arms. FIGHT FOR YOUR MONEY is personal finance on steroids that urges consumers to see big business as an enemy: they game the system and ordinary people need to go on the offensive and outsmart the corporate interests. It will be painful for a reader to realize how much of the biweekly paycheck is going toward late fees, escalating interest rates, and other rip-offs, but Bach helps readers to protect themselves and their money. This book offers fiery indignation to those wary of the usual personal finance bromides.
