Overspent shopper launches begging web site.
A New York woman has set up a web site requesting help to pay off her USD20,000 credit card bills which she ran up buying designer clothes.
The Save Karyn web site has so far had 200,000 hits, and has made USD2,700 despite Karyn's warnings that she cannot give anything in return for donations.
Karyn's web site can be found at http://www.savekaryn.com/.
A spin off of this has been the creation of the satirical Don't Save Karyn web site (http://www.dontsavekaryn.com/) by two software engineers who disagree with the original project.
