Wanda Battle, a registered nurse for four decades, was recently hit with a $100,000 medical bill. She visited her local emergency room on several occasions due to severe migraines and several mini-strokes. Battle managed to reduce her latest hospital bill to $32,000 based on her relatively low income, but also has $650 monthly payments for a separate $22,000 medical bill. There were times I couldnt work, says Battle, 61. I have not held a job that is continuous. One agency told me I hadnt worked enough hours to qualify for health insurance.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
