When it comes to financial advice, Marketplace Money is usually in the business of highlighting the good stuff. This week, however, we’re after the bad. We want to hear the absolute worst, most awful pieces of financial advice you’ve ever gotten.

And, who knows, your tale of woe may save someone else from falling into the same trap.
