In which I rant about the credit card company again

So we all remember my ranting about the credit card company, right?

Shortly after that I got an email from them telling me that they had exciting new opportunities for me. I ignored it.

Then we got checks to use to transfer other balances onto that card. Roland called and said, "That account is cancelled right?" They said yes, it was. There would be one more statement issued to us that would have a zero balance and then it would be all gone.

Then we got a letter in the mail saying that our new interest rate was 29.9% and if we did not want to accept their terms we could cancel the account.


  1. Isx= that any way to run a business? No wonder the banks need to be bailed out.

  2. Report them to the FDIC and BBB. It worked for us. If you know they are a member of the Chamber of Commerce (either locally or in their chartered city) then report them there too. You'll probably hear the end of it fairly quickly.


Comments will be open for a little while, then I will be shutting them off. The blog will stay, but I do not want either to moderate comments or leave the blog available to spammers.
