(U.S. Edition) Home equity lines of credit have hit a 9-year high…but are we forgetting the risks? Plus, we run down the Presidents’ promise to lower drug companies’ prices for consumers, a currency exchange network the U.S. government believes is funneling cash to Iran’s revolutionary guard and a scam a little closer to home you may want to pay attention to: a robo-call known as neighbor-spoofing. The FCC just fined a Florida man $120 million for making nearly 100 million such calls.
