Merrick Bank Corp. Credit Dept. ripoff Raise Credit Limits, then dramatically raise interest rates Draper Utah
*Consumer Comment: Merrick Bank Corp. Credit Dept. ripoff Raise Credit Limits, then dramatically raise interest rates Draper Utah"
They increased my credit limit twice in the past 4 months, yet have listed an eroneous reason on the letter that it had to do with something in my credit report. They should be a bit wiser, I reviewed my credit report on-line immediately and had absolutely no change it since this time last year when applying for a mortgage.
They did this deliberately to have consumers charge their cards over Christmas with increased limits to then increase the interest rates over 50%.
Further more, pay close attention to your credit report with this creditor, my credit report shows inquiries every month since the time I received this credit card. No other creditor has done this on my report. What are they looking for, other than a way to get rich quick. They were established in 1997, does that tell anyone something?
Beware and caution, Oh by the way, I not only closed my account upon receipt of the letter today, I have also reported them to the Federal Trade Commision and paid my account off.
I feel worse for others who may not have the funds to do the same and may be caught in the same predicament as another gentlemen, which story I read posted here.
