Fraud committed by company that hired me, no help from issuer

Postby frankg314 » Mon Nov 18, 2013 10:40 am

I had been given an opportunity to join a logistics team and with a signed contract, they paid off my credit cards in order to buy office equipment, well long story short now I know what they had in mind, I went with it, got paid a salary to buy & ship to Finland MAC BOOK Air computers I purchased with my credit card, all payments to the card where approved by Cap one, instantly so no problem showed up, until 30 days later the account that the payments where made, charged back Cap one for the payments.

It got pretty messy, the company pulled up stakes & disappeared, I hired a collection agency to track down the person that I sent the computers to, but they where gone too. Now a year later I have been paying on the credit card but the balance is going nowhere. I called Cap one a bunch of times but they refused to work with me, the card is closed and there stand poit is as long as the card is current and there is a balance, they cannot do a thing for me, no reduction in interest, or freezing the interest rate, NOTHING.

What other recourse is there I can take, besides stop paying this card ? I will pay this off just need a breather... Thanks

I would try the executive office of Cap One this is clearly fraud. They are just trying to stick you with eating this. I would also contact the CFPB and BBB and while it won't do much practical good file a complaint with the police and include that in what you give Cap One.

Otherwise I think your only recourse is to hire a lawyer and fight and who knows how that will go.

This is a pretty classic fraud. Unfortunately, you are responsible for your CC debts if you made the purchases. That you made this for what turned out to be fraudsters doesn't change your liability. You have a claim against the company you did this for but fraudsters disappear.
