My Sears Home Improvement account was taken over by Household Bank without any warning or input from me, a loyal Sears customer. I received a bill from Household Bank and the payment due for every month will be $127.00. The contract Sears sold me that I signed, required a monthly payment of $87.00. I called the company at 1-800-391-6311 and gave them my account number. They told me they had increased my interest rate from the contract I agreed to with Sears, "but this is still a very good rate and with Sears it was too low." When I told them I may not be able to pay $127.00 monthly, and that is why I bought my home improvements from Sears; because I needed the low monthly payment of $87.00, I was told "it's to my advantage because this way the account will be paid off sooner." I said to the lady on the telephone, that she was very cheerful about this irate phone call from me, and didn't she feel just a little bit bad about representing a company that would and could do this to a customer - a new welcomed customer at that - and she said she worked for a very good company, and would never consider working anywhere else. She said what this company was doing was legal because if I read my contract about a year and a half ago, I would have seen that Sears had a clause in it that said they could eventually turn the contract over to some other company. What I would like to know is this; am I wrong in using the interest rate and the monthly payment amount in making a decision on which company to use for my home improvements? I had estimates from several companies. Now I have been ripped off by Household and Sears. Don't you think this must have happened to thousands of other Sears customers? IT IS WRONG!!!!!!
