Complaint Review: SAMS Club

SAMS Club hid fees in credit card application. Brandon Florida
*Consumer Comment: Sams club
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: No hidden fees on Sam's Club Credit
*Consumer Comment: college " GRAD " HUMMMMM
*Consumer Comment: There are no fees
I already had a VISA, but SAMS will not accept credit cards.
I looked at the form and read through it. I was looking for fees of any kind. I did not see any. I asked the lady who was a SAMS employee if there were any fees with this credit card. She read the form and said she did not see any.
It was a short form, so I filled it out. And was told to pick my credit card up at the front desk in the near future. I forgot about it and never picked up the credit card.
Not too long after that, I got a bill for $32. I did not know what to think. I never picked up my credit card. I just tossed the bill in the garbage. I got a few more bills. Then I got a bill for around $70 something, for back fees. I wonder where they got that
I am lead to beleive that SAMS hid the fee in the application, perhaps with lawyer lingo. I did not see it, and I have a BA and work as a computer coordinator. The lady that was representing SAMS did not see any fees on the form, and she appeared to be a bright lady.
Then I started to get their threatening letters about turning me over to a collection agency.
Then a collection agency started calling. I told them I was not going to pay. I never picked up the credit card and I did not see any fees on the form and that the SAMS employee told me she did not see any fees.
That did not matter to SAMS, they cancelled my membership. All for a credit card I never received. And I think they contacted the credit bureau to put a bad mark against my credit.
They are clearly not after customer service, but they are after the customer's money.
I can't beleive they wanted me to give them $70 some odd for a credit card I never even picked up.
I will now do my shopping at Costco instead of SAMS. And I will probably not darken the door of a Walmart, which owns SAMS.
