Comments on: Dodgy credit card of the day http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/09/29/dodgy-credit-card-of-the-day/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Roberto Patuel http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/09/29/dodgy-credit-card-of-the-day/comment-page-1/#comment-55694 Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:55:10 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=5559#comment-55694 I want to express some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this trouble. Just after surfing throughout the world-wide-web and finding recommendations which are not pleasant, I was thinking my life was over. Existing without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve fixed by means of your good post is a critical case, and those that might have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your web page. The talents and kindness in maneuvering all things was excellent. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a point like this. I’m able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your professional and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to propose your web blog to any individual who needs tips about this subject.

I was just about to apply for this card today when I saw Felix’s article. Thanks, Felix! I did some additional research and found some interesting results, also. The website today has their offices at 2 Penn Center Plaza, Suite 200, in Philadelphia. Being from Philadelphia myself, I Googled the address. From the types of results I got, it appears that Suite 200 holds leased small office space that changes lessors VERY frequently. HedgeLender LIC, Master Matchmakers, various lawyers, even a charity group. In fact, I can rent my own office space there for $30/hour, right down the hall from Anacott Financial! How cool is that?!

As mentioned a few posts above, I received a card that gave me access to $2100 in credit counciling.

I wrote them a stern but clear e-mail that I expected a full refund. But otherwise, I too will be pressing charges.

I sent them my money of $ 99.00 and all my personal information and on Oct. 21, 2010, I received a plastic card with No Logo or (3)digit code on the back. Nothing. I am requesting a Refund and we all need to press charges.

I applied 9-13 and like many of you did some research and did not find negative input at all so went forward with it…what a mistake. Upon receiving the card, the letter says to activate it on the website which I did. The card itself is very strange…it’s durable plastic, but there are no raised numbers or letters (your name) it’s all flat. There is nothing written on the back, just the black swipe line. So right off the bat, I wondered how could I use this card if it does not tell me what type (MC, Visa etc.) it is and also there is no 3 digit code number on the back which is always asked for. So I thought I would go through a MacDonalds drive thru to see if it worked…ha ha. The lady kept swiping and finally said, “Ma’am I don’t know what’s wrong with this card, but it doesn’t register anything on my screen. It’s like I’m not swiping anything.” As I figured…but I kept saying to myself…they already have had my $99.00, why go through the trouble of printing a card and sending it in the mail using a .44 cent stamp?? The envelope was sent from West Palm Beach, FL. I re-read the letter that came with it and it says “this card will allow you access to our professional credit consultants that will help you rebuild your financial future”. On the back it says more under the terms and conditions that you may or may not receive the card you originally inquired about. You may be issued an unsecured card or a credit consulting credit card with different terms and conditions, which is exactly what I must have been given. So there is no need for a MC or Visa backing or raised numbers, or the 3 digit code…I cannot use the darn thing except to use them for credit information!!! I only hope I can get my money back and like many of you..I should have known better that it sounded too easy.

Honestly, after reading this…I kind of feel sick. I’m normally not this naive, and I was even skeptical saying “this is too good to be true”. Uuuggg…

Too bad I liked the terms and the offer, we shall see if I get anything or if I get a refund!
