Fucking A — someone will pay.

Filed under: Rampaging short — Tags: , , — kyraninse @ 11:59 pm

I was just looking at my credit card statement and was very horrified to figure that I had somehow incurred 114 dollars worth of fines and random fees…

Alright, the first two 30 odd dollars were from my bank because I paid my credit card with the wrong checking account and so I incurred an overdraft fee and a returned payment fee. I expect, because I went out and spent money today — that I’m going to be incurring a overdraft fee of 40 dollars very soon. So that’s going to be 154 dollars of — pure thrown away money.

That’s fine…that was just my stupidity. Stupidity that happened for the second fucking time. I swear, if I do this to myself again…I’m just going to fucking shoot myself in the face.

What really gets my goat is that I’ve also incurred mysterious charges from the following companies without every receiving services or even a notice that “hi, we’re going to be charging you on so and so trumped up charges”. AND my credit card company refuses to let me dispute the charge because “it’s a third party service fee”.

IF I can’t get through to the company tomorrow so I can cancel this fee, I’m telling Chase that I’m canceling my credit card with them after I pay off the balance — which is going to be a fucking long time because I’m stupidly in debt — but they don’t know that.

The companies in question are a “AP9*PRIVACYMATTERS12-V” and a ” TLG*PRIVGRD67424279MAY“.

With the latter TLG at least, I’ve been trying to get myself taken off whatever membership they’ve got me signed up with for at least a couple months now. The thing is, I tried Googling those companies and they’ve got a pretty nasty rep on the internet for randomly charing people under false pretenses. I’ve heard “scam” and “tricked” more than just a couple of times.

Just Fucking A.

I’m going to start yelling at them tomorrow, starting with TLG, and if that doesn’t solve things — there will be so much hell to pay.

So, do YOU have odd charges on your credit card statements?

  3. Amanda, have you been able to deal with it at all? I found that calling them up, my credit card statement online had a phone number, and telling them to cancel my “membership” or I’d sic the State Attorney general worked well. I also called my credit card company and told them if they allowed this one more time, I’d cancel my account with them pronto. It seems to have worked!

  4. My charges seemed to come in conjunction with those fromAP9-FOODANDFLIX-V. They started with $1.00 on my visa, and I blame myself partially for not checking my charges carefully. When the first CO.(term used loosely)’ charged me $29 I called the number given and they refunded mu $29. I hadn’t noticed the $29 dollars on the previous statement, and by the time I did they were no longer communicating. The second company returned most of the $1 charges…..

    So those of you who do not check your credit card statements carefully, every month….you will lose less than those of us who don’t. Good luck all. Sue

  5. I too, am a not so bright I guess. How this Foodandflex got ahold of a Capital account it is still puzzling. Slipped in a $1.00 charge for six months before I caught it. Now, what a hassle. Closing accounts and so forth. Only way to insure clousure I hope. Not real happy with Capital One, wanted me to produce the actual card, my history of years shows airplane tickets, rental cars, hotels. Why would I charge a dollar a month?
    Not an ad in any way and please to not take it that way. AMEX in the 70’s,80’s & 90’s would contact a person by phone when the charges did not fit the pattern. They made the mistake of pricing themselves out of the business. Maybe it was worth the cost from the spender side and the legitimate merchant side.
    A little side note; I wonder what strip mall with an office that they can move in a night these people are working out of? Be kind of nice to walk in on them and ask these questions.
