JPMorgan Chase - Washington Mutual - Providian - Chase Card Services - Chase Bank USA - Cha se/WaMu: Increased card to 31.99%-APR, and Chase Agrees In Writing that I Never Paid Late or Defaulted. Seattle Washington
It is also interesting to note, that None of my other credit-cards have such outrageous rates.
I am not accusing Chase/WaMu of doing anything illegal.
My point is this:
Many Americans are losing jobs and enduring pay-cuts due to economic climate. Chase/WaMu knows this fact. Yet, they are creating outrageous APR's, even for those credit-card accounts that are in good standing!
How should blue-collar and middle-class America respond?
I intend to close every Chase account that I have ever had, and I have already emptied my WaMu checking account.
Now, as proof of my opinions and beliefs, here is the communication between Chase/WaMu and I:
