If anyone can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I would like to see if there is a chance to file a class action lawsuit against this company. I, just like all of you, have been duped by this company and had my interest rate raised to 37.18%.

When I called the company to find out why, they just gave me the run around.

Any help in this would be appreciated.

Message to All plus special note to DEC458@MSN.COM

AUTHOR: Gemantel - (U.S.A.)

Hi:

DEC458 made a good point, as there seems to be two groups involved here (the haves and have nots) with respect to success in dealing with Advanta.

It would be nice for people to post more specifics in the case(s) of success, i.e., names of specific lawyers we can all use and/or special, effective tactics.

I'd like an appropriate lawyer I could touch base with on this one, while looking at other avenues.

BTW, DEC458 I tried emailing you twice now, I'm very game to get involved in the power-in-numbers game.

Class Action & Skipping Payments

AUTHOR: DEC458@MSN.COM - (U.S.A.)

Skipping payments is going to ruin your personal credit record, since Advanta is actually a glorified personal credit card even though they claim to be a small business credit card.

I am working with an attorney in CA and NY on filing a class action lawsuit. If interested in participating, please contact me at (dec458) at (msn.com).

If you never received your opt out notice about the rate increase, and know for sure, then you could probably sue them in small claims court I would imagine. There have been a couple of people successful at it. Some have had luck getting their interest and payment rates back after closing their account with a complaint to the Utah BBB and some haven't. Not sure what the common denominator is.

PLEASE COUNT ME "IN" ON THIS ONE

AUTHOR: Gemantel - (U.S.A.)

If anyone out there has any success initiating a "class" suit, please let me know and allow me to get involved.

In the meantime, I am planning on "skipping" my payments to this crummy outfit (meaning Advanta).

We need to get something started, as a group!
