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

This so called credit company if a total rip OFF. I got one of thier so called gold cards over 1 year ago and i have been denied a credit line increse 3 times. I call them request a credit line increse and they always come off with the same bullshit story. That i am not eligible due to my credit report and ballance due of the card. Well i got some news. Te ballance is $0 and i have 2 other credit cards one from Captial One and the other from my bank and both of them had no problems giving me a credit line increse.

Now on top of all this crap they are handing me they charge me for cash advances that i did not use. Outragous loan shark interest rates.

If anyone knows or has information about the class action law suit that was imposed on FNBM please let me know by posting an update to this report.*

Sincerely PISSED OFF

*EDitor's Comment

The reason why we have removed links, e-mail address or phone numbers from this report is because people have, in the past, attempted the following, ...all too often.

Posting LINKS

Many times links to unknown web sites will cause your pc to freeze up and /or cause you to get a computer virus, virtually rendering your computer useless. Most of the time, this is the work of a Company or an Individual who has been reported.
Many Government links are no better than the BBB and are just a waste of time, giving you false hope. Many government sites (like the BBB) just collect all information from you, the consumer, but never make that information available, so consumers will NOT be educated as to what exactly they should be looking out for. On the other hand, many government agencies have and do come to the Rip-off Report for information. We have been assisting many government agencies for some time now, including the FBI and Attorney General offices from around the country..

Now that all these Rip-off Reports are out in the open for everyone to see, in a way, this embarrasses these agencies into doing something when they see so many reports on a Company or Individual, because they are now out in the open for all to see. Unfortunately, many (not all) Attorney General Office's and government agencies will not move against a rip-off unless there is going to be some sort of publicity on the rip-off. By reporting your experience on the Rip-off Report, is the next best thing to getting your story on TV or in a newspaper. Most national TV networks and many local TV stations from all around the country come to the Rip-off Report for information they will not get from the BBB, Attorney General office's or any other government agency. Rip-off Report has instigated many local and national stories, resulting in help for victims, in one way or another. Most government agencies will never even bother with rip-offs unless it involves $50,000 or more. Now that the government is cutting back even more dollars for these types of programs, this number will even get higher and we can expect even less to get done, by even less people to work on all these rip-offs.


We have also struggled with the following for a long time..
The reason why we delete phone numbers, ..all too often unscrupulous lawyers or individuals posing as lawyers are collecting victims information to only further victimize them. Many times, well-meaning consumers think they are going to collect names and get them to a lawyer who will do something. In every case we have allowed a consumer victim to do this, nothing has ever came of it. Consumers were under the impression that something will be done to get them help. In every case this did nothing but lead the consumer on, further victimizing them, and some consumers were mad at us. We feel it is our responsibility to check the legitimacy of the lawyer before advertising their service on the Rip-off Report.

We will also not allow lawyers to use this web site for free when they will end up taking a large amount of fees, leaving the victim with very little. There are many competent lawyers out there that know how to get the unscrupulous Companies or Individuals who ripped you off, to pay their fees. Those lawyers capable of this can post their numbers after checking with us here at the Rip-off Report.


For similar reasons as mentioned above, we will not allow individuals to post e-mail addresses, so they can be contacted for more info they claim they cannot post. If that person can contact YOU and get the information, so will everyone else be contacting you anyway, and, if it's good enough for them to receive it by contacting you, then you should be able to post that information for everyone to see and know about. And, many times, in an attempt to get your contact information, consumers will leave an email address; this is just a ploy to sell you a product or some other service. Most likely, you will end up on other junk mail lists. ..if they have something to sell, they should place an advertisement showing support to Rip-off so we can further help consumers.

ADDITIONAL NOTE ...about our advertisers:

As an extra added precaution to our readers, even all our PAID advertisements are checked out to the best of our ability before allowing them to be placed on the Rip-off Report. WE have turned down many advertisers to date. Advertisers on the Rip-off Report know, they are not immune from a Rip-off Report being filed on them. How many times do you see Rip-off companies advertising on TV and in publications when you know there are so many complaints about them!

AUTHOR: Kelly - ()

hi,i had some dealings with first natl bank of marin-i filed a complaint againest them -u can try searching las vegas attorney generals office on the web, i believe u can file complaint right on line.

If not-the address is :
Office of the attorney general
Bureau of the consumer protection
555 east washington avenue,suite 3900
Las Vegas,Nevada 89101

After filing with them,i recieved a letter from them stating the following"Please be advised that on december 3,2001,the office of the comptroller of the currency(occ) settled its case against the first national bank of marin.

In the settlement,the bank agreed to cease practices that the OCC alleged are unsafe and unsound,and to pa rstitution to the customers harmed by these practices."

We were advised to contact the customer asssistance group/comptroller of the currency,which we did. (as first natl bank reported 6 different accts on my husbands credit report,stating one was a fraud acct,funny thing is,we never had there credit card,never even heard of them!)Needless to say-we recieved a letter from the president of customer service,stating they were sorry,and items would be all removed off the reports within 30 days-and they were.

I dont know if this helps any,but thought id pass along the info i had.According to attorney generals office,they are eager to fix their mishaps-especially now!!! They may think twice before dening you a credit increase. Good luck!
eres the infor for :

Customer Assistance Group
Comptroller of Currency
1301 mckinney street #3710
houston,texas 77010
