Who do you talk to? Good idea, bad idea? What if you were so confident in your idea that you'd be willing to put your neck on the line? I've been reading and it appears they only fuck with you if you fail to meet the terms of the loan.

Try Danny Deveto, it is the DeVetos and DePolos that are the sourse of the God Father. The last living member of my family that were 'Mob' is my Uncle Boss, he is in Florida, look him up, he would know. I'm like my father Joe Summa, stay as far from des guys as you can.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but don't they charge insane interest. Like 100 percent? John, don't do it. Getting killed will have a negative impact on the rest of your life.

yeah, that one can be a killer. and the only mob you're going to find in the desert are the "relocated" types, so i wouldn't go looking, if i was you.

Sounds like a FANTASTIC idea! Definitely do it. Oh, and bring along a copy of what you read, they'll enjoy that. (And tell 'em Vinny from Model Mayhem sent you.)

You have to be able to say to your wife, "Never ask me about my business."  Not all wives are gonna go for that.

They send Joe Pesci around to visit you if you don't pay.

I think you can find them behind the loan desk of most banks these days.

I'd rather owe the mob than the IRS.  That's for sure.  At least if you can't afford to pay back the mob, you can do a favor to settle the debt.

There are those who believe the mob had a hand in killing JFK. What do you think they'd do to you?

That would be a loan shark.
Loans from the 'mob' typically aren't much more than a loan from a 'legit' source.   (Remember, the mob often borrows money from legit sources, so they can't really offer the same exact rates... no profit!)

Considering that title loans in this state are over 200% interest, I am thinking it couldn't possibly be worth it.

Generally they would not kill you. Not so much out of kindness and concern but more on the fact that dead people have poor track record of repaying debts.

If you are thinking about borrowing money from the mob, why not just save yourself a lot of trouble...break your own legs, shoot yourself multiple times and then fall into the river with cement boots on?

Ok.. I've reconsidered. I'm still planning on taking the loan, but I'm trying to talk Gryph into signing for it. That way my conscience is clear.
