Description

The series explains, after the economy tanked last year, "five different schemes that made life harder for families trying to cope with financial problems." These schemes, which were promoted by financial companies and brokers, assured families help was on the way but actually caused more hardship. Furthermore, this help came at a price for the federal government, who lost "$700 million dollars" from loans.
