My guess is this bit of specific information will only help the select few readers I have who’re in the market for a new car or other major purchase, but it’s good to know. Some businesses like to add a pointless fee called an FTC charge to big buys. It isn’t a tax and has nothing to do with the Federal Trade Commission. Blatantly, it means Fuck The Customer. How do I know this? Inside knowledge. I’ve seen it done, I’ve asked, and some workers are proud they get away with it. If you see it, ask the person what it is, call them out and report it to the Better Business Bureau.
It also happens B2B. Watch who you deal with!
