Moral Latitude

Neither a borrower nor a lender be.

And that should leave you plenty of leeway.

Stealing for instance, would be fine. Embezzlement. Fraud. Deception. Torture. All our old favourites.

Also, you could freely offload your junk on others, by pretending to lend it to them and then feigning ignorance during their increasingly embarassed attempts to return it.

Speaking of borrowing, it does seem that your bank account was empty when we last looked. We know that you wouldn't want your subscription to our 'free' service to expire (and we wouldn't want you to expire either would we - or for someone close to you to have a horrible accident with a garden implement), and so we have taken out a loan in your name, so that you can keep paying us regularly. We know what you're thinking - how could such a thing be possible? What bank would allow it
? Well, a regular bank wouldn't. But there are some Russian gentlemen we know who often need to shift large amounts of money around. We like to help them and they do have lots of interesting contacts. So if you don't want those contacts attached to your genitals with crocodile clips and plugged into our generator, I suggest you work a little harder to find the money, perhaps stacking shelves in a shop every night.

T4TD Corp.
We do, because we can.
