I'm a reporter with Money magazine, and I'm looking for people to share their credit card horror stories in a feature story I'm working on. I'm especially looking for good, responsible users who have recently:
Had a credit line significantly cut (especially for no reason)
Had an interest rate hike (especially for no reason)
Had a bad experience with rewards being slashed, limited, etc.
Suffered other credit card horror stories
Stories can be brief--I just need to know what happened, who the issuer was, etc. This is definitely not a big time commitment. I am on a tight deadline, so please email me your story at firstname.lastname@example.org
as soon as possible.
I was a subscriber to Money Magazine.
I used PayPal to pay for the subscription and somehow Money Magazine found a way to auto bill PayPal for subscription renewal.
After I found out this had happened I removed Money Magazine from PayPal and cancelled the subscription.
Now 3+ months have passed and Money Magazine has yet to refund my subscription. Every communication with MM brings a different answer? The payment was denied by your bank — no it wasn’t! The payment was refunded to my credit card, but
MM doesn’t have my credit card, no it wasn’t.
As a reporter, you can imagine the frustration I feel dealing with your employer.
Money Magazine has created a terrorist over less than $20.
Just so you can do your research into this matter the subscription was in the name of Ed Dennis and the account number was 1638 4383 070.
Are you a reporter with the guts to expose your own company’s problems. Did you realize that Money Magazine was involved in credit card fraud.
If you would like to see a copy of all the emails, drop me a line and I will forward them to you.
Thanks for your time
