Cross Country Bank - Applied Card Systems ripoff consumers with so called debt relief programs Boca Raton Florida

*Consumer Comment: Not Cross Country!

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I am a former employee of Cross Country bank. They have misled consumers again, by offering so called debt relief programs to help consumers pay off their high balance. These programs are inflated by associates who are told to ask for more than what is actually required. This company has repeatedly used pressure tactics to get consumers to pay their bills and are currently being pursued by the FDIC and FTC.

I have personally been in meetings where associates are told that their jobs depend on how much money they
collect and forget about helping the consumer.

Blame it on the stem cells!

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

Hi Vincent. I am assuming you haven't read a lot of the reports on this site and run into Boz before. He's one of the regulars, as am I.

Boz gets a little off the subject at times, but I think he does mean well. He sometimes forgets that he's supposed to be studing the stem cells and not snorting them. I've heard a stem cell addiction is really hard to beat too!

I wanna thank you for your update. I have a friend who has a card thru this bank and will pass the URL of your report to him.

Now, will you or Boz *please* send some humidity this way? This 'dry heat' in Phoenix, as they call it, is just killing me. I miss Florida!!! (I used to live in Davie and miss it something awful.)

run by "people" who could care less about the consumer

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


Hey Tex,
lets get back to reality.........ths is not a real bank first of all. It is run by "people" who could care less about the consumer. They care even less about their employees. This so called bank is being sued by the attorney generals of 5 states(Minnesota, Wisconsin,West Virginia, New York and Florida.) Did I forget to mention that the national labor board is also on their tails for work place violations regarding their employees? Now isn't it time you awoke and joined the rest of us in what we call reality!!!!! By the way this is all fact, and if anyone wants to verify it be my guest.

Not Cross Country!

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

It is Texino and time is short. The Christian Police have surrounded the Lab in the belief that I (Texino) have the stem cells from the Olsen Twins, Ms Olsen and Ms. Olsen, but I don't.

So on to this rip off. When I was a boy (I'm not a girl ha ha ha)
I ran races for the Cuban Cross Country team. All the other boys on my team were just as dedicated as I was and I am certain that they turned out to be just as successful as I have, if not more so.

Therefore, if they have started a bank, I am sure that it is a good one, even if it might be more difficult to reach that your average banking business.

Also, Mr. Vincent, it is my understanding that a bank wants its employees to encourage people to put money into the bank.

It is just the same as you having a pig bank in your room. Fill it with money and you will have more than you did when it was empty. That is the cool thing about a bank!

OK, so I have Ideas! If the Cross Country Bank is hard to find due to it being off of the track or in the woods, maybe a bank person should take her police whistle out side then blow it very loudly. Also maybe a a flare gun is used to shoot the fire up to the sky. Everyone sees! Everyone Banks. Let's all save some money and take a trip where it is sunny!

See Texino is the one for making things OK. (sure they call me baby killer, but they don't know a baby if it spit on arm)

It is now time to study the rules of volley ball.
