Credit Card Company Complaints

Sometimes you come across a credit card company that has been doing something wrong.

For example, perhaps they keep recharging you for fees that you already paid.  Or perhaps they charge you a late fee when you can prove they cashed the check before the due date.

Some credit card companies are worse than others.

If you have had a bad experience you may be hopping mad about it.  Not many people would blame you for that.

When you have trouble with a company it is usually a frustrating and time wasting experience.

I dislike having my time wasted by anyone, especially companies who are making money off me in the first place.  I feel they have an obligation to provide exceptional customer service.

If I have to waste my time straightening out a problem, it does not sit well with me.

Here is a list of options for credit card  company complaints

I try the easiest and less drastic methods first.  But if it comes down to getting the government involved to get a problem straightened out, do not hesitate.  That is what you pay your taxes for.

There is a lake in the city of Darmstadt Germany that recently froze over enough for people to skate on the ice.

This is the first time in several years that it was cold enough to skate on.

You can watch the video of the ice skaters.

You will see a large vineyard area that runs up and down the hills surrounding the village.  This is a prime area for growing grapes for wine harvesting.  

In fact, this area was most likely under the control of the Romans who used it the area for wine production themselves.
