Fuck Chase Bank!

If anyone has a Chase credit card please beware... Chase is raising monthly minimum payments from 2% to 5% effective August 1st.

Like the average American I owe 10K on a Chase credit card, so my minimum monthly payments just jumped from 200 dollars to 500 dollars per month. They roped me in with a low 3.99% offer. I usually paid a 3% minimum monthly payment anyway, but forcing you to pay an extra 300 bucks a month is a backbreaker.

Chase is asking for too much, too soon from the American consumer.

So I have done the balance transfer offer, will be closing accounts and changing my banks very soon. Then transfer my mortgage to anyone other than Chase. Chase has lost a customer and I suggest to everyone, do not deal with Chase.

This is how Chase pays back the American people after we bailed them out with TARP money!

Fuckers!

Those mutherfucker banks really do own this country (i.e. they own the country's government). I use try to do all my financial dealings with credit unions. They're about the only sane alternative out there anymore.

We need to do more to deal with income inequality so Americans don't rely so much on credit cards.

I think this latest move is part of the banksters' effort to retaliate for the recent credit card legislation.

I disagree. Americans need to reduce their craving for life's non-necessities.

Are you sure "the average American" owes $10,000 in debt? I don't consider myself that far above average, and I have absolutely NO debt.

Alessandro Machi said...

Oh Great, Elayne, that just means eveybody else in this country owes even more than 10,000 dollars because you don't have any debt. You're mucking the numbers. (just joking).

However, you still may owe your job to us idiots who did put things on credit and were able to buy products or services your company offers.
