My payment was submitted to juniper credit card in Delaware via my bank bill pay system. payment requested by me on April 15th and Check was cut on April 16th and mailed on April 16th...My payment was not posted on the account until April 30, 2008...payment was due April 28th...
There are hundreds of complaints on the internet see RIPOFFREPORT.com You will see complaints of the same...14 and 15 days to receive and post payments. These seems to be a practice be used to charge the $39.00 late fee...many are complaining of the same thing. This is so blatant that it is scary...it is a pattern and they should be investigated...I would like my complaint to be forwarded to my congressman and further would like to see a class action suit started. Please call me with any and all questions...I will not let this rest...
Barclays is taking advantage of consumers and something needs to be done. It took 14 days to receive and process a check????? They have stipulation that check need to paid via their envelope and pay stub or there could be an additional 5 days processing time....most folks now a day pay via pay service from their banks...this is a gimmick to delay posting...I can say this because there are hundreds of complaints on the internet... Please do your best to have them stop this practice. I have filed a report with FDIC see below.
