Take 3K (or whatever) go to the first bank,open the C.D. and get the loan on the secured C.D. Get the loan structured to be interest payments only. Then at the end "Cash Out" the C.D. to pay off the loan, (one paper cancels out the other!). With the $3K your "borrowing" go to bank 2 and repeat, and bank 3. Thus you've borrowed $9K with no tie up of your $$$. You could even borrow that money from a friend (to start)and pay him back in 1-2 weeks!
