The American people have been turned off by the ever increasing prices charged by credit card providers. This lack of monetary maturity has led to the widespread misconception that the credit card is a “thing”. At its worst, it represents a scam – a scam that is used vigorously by some credit card companies for their clientele, and is used to get customers to sign up for their bogus low interest rates – which they then promptly regret afterwards.
The FACT: There is a huge (and, in many cases, thriving) credit card industry which is trying hard, successfully, to win consumers over. It’s all about taking risks and finding ways to make each and every purchase work. Banks are making fantastic profit from the whole, “secured” account – each transaction is recorded, at the customer’s expense, in the company’s “reporting”. If a card’s commission is not rising as expected, and if debt service – which is normally a huge work – is not being met, the salesperson can expect nothing at all. The rest of the purchases will be paid off according to the accumulated earnings from the card.
The FACT: Banks tend to draw their profits by charging high interest, penalty fees, high unpaid and late fees, and through unjustifiably high charges on accounts with low or zero balance years, and by charging these to what is supposed to be customer’s account within 60 days of the day those bills are due. This is one of the many loopholes the banks use in order to collect a fee from those customers who make money by late filing.
The FACT: A customer’s monthly statement, and the money that they charge back to the bank for each month that passes without checking the account’s past due debt, is called a “receipt”. A receivables (in this case, prepaid money) balance (or “receipts”) is another word on when or how the bank reports and spends money. It’s a word that means the same thing to bank personnel when used properly.
The FACT: Banks don’t give away the “receipt”. When a customer signs up on the website, it’s been “hidden” from the potential customers. Not that this is a good thing. It’s just that they made a big deal of it – but no one saw it? Well, not even the bank. More importantly, there are only a few people who are likely to have (read: plan to undergo an ) an interest rate shock. So banks mustn’t give away the “receipt”. The rules are vague and vague and nothing prevents them from actually surmising they need an interest rate shock, of some kind. Once they receive a demand letter, it’s up to the bank – or anywhere else that the bank sends it – to “notice”. The bank must then send an “action plan” detailing all of its “utilities” and “procedures” – which include taking those out to all potential customers.
The FACT: Banks must first reveal and explain, at the very least, how they make money – how they make their money work, the whole concept of “compensation” – and how things will go from here without. Banks are supposed to do this. Once they’ve done this, however, they’re obliged not to disclose any of this information to potential customers or to anyone else for that matter.
The FACT: Customer complaints are among the most heavily regulated and audited parts of the government’s surveillance of financial transactions. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) also enforces federal law on wholesale and retail trade promotion agreements (GAPs) that target, among other things, Internet advertising and promotion practices that affect “economy of scale” marketing. In other words, the Fair, Indiscriminate Trade Practices Act (FILPA) forbids unfair or deceptive practices by Internet companies in:
Offer or solicitation: ” offering or soliciting products or services on the Internet or through telecommunication, or any other form of solicitation of a person or actionable by a proceeds of sales or gain directly or indirectly.”
Disclosure: ” I recently received a copy of an agreement described in this notice or an ” express ” connection between the seller’s advertising or solicitation of a customer’s preference and the purchase of a product or service ”
Offence: ” making a false statement, or in any form, to a federal or state official, or to a federal employee, or to any official of a state, public or local agency: 4.
