Fraudulent charges \n. \nAs a general rule, . The federal government mandates that you can be held liable for only $50 of unauthorized charges, and many credit card companies even waive that.\n. \n. \n. \nThis is if the credit cards were stolen. What may be the sticky point in this awful, s…ticky story is if the credit card companies want to argue that your friend gave the girl his credit cards or somehow authorized the charges.\n. \n. \n. \nThis is not a legal opinion. Your friend should probably talk to another lawyer, ASAP.\n. \nMore input from FAQ Farmers:\n. \n . Here's a detailed explanation of what you're responsible for and how to dispute errors: http://www.card-fraud.com/consumer/Reg_FairCreditBilling.html (MORE)
Disputing a Credit Card Charge . Issuers must follow rules for promptly addressing a credit card dispute. You'll get a statement outlining their rules for correcting billing errors when you open an account and at least once a year. In fact, many issuers include a summary of these rights on your b…ills. If you find a mistake on your bill, you can dispute the charge and withhold payment on that amount while the charge is being investigated. The error might be a charge for the wrong amount, for something you didn't accept, or for an item that wasn't delivered as agreed. Of course, you still have to pay any part of the bill that's not in dispute, including finance and other charges. Write to the creditor at the address indicated on your statement for "billing inquiries." Include your name, address, account number, and a description of the error. Send your letter soon. It must reach the creditor within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you. The creditor must acknowledge your complaint in writing within 30 days of receipt, unless the problem has been resolved. At the latest, the dispute must be resolved within two billing cycles, but not more than 90 days. In order to dispute a charge for unsatisfactory goods or services, you must: have made the purchase in your home state or within 100 miles of your current billing address. The charge must be for more than $50. (These limitations don't apply if the seller also is the card issuer or if a special business relationship exists between the seller and the card issuer.) and, first make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute with the seller. No special procedures are required to do so. If these conditions don't apply, you may want to consider filing an action in small claims court.. Here are answers and opinions from FAQ Farmers:. Be very, very careful when disputing a payment. Regardless of the amount, pay your credit card bill on time. Whatever you do, make sure your bank or credit card company do not list the balance on your credit card as a "bad debt", other you will not be able to get a mortgage for your house, or a loan for a car because your credit rating will have been affected.

Sure they can. Inactive means it hasn't been used for a while, but it is still a valid account.
Not as a rule. The company will want proof, preferably a death certificate. The account will be closed, but the charges will probably accrue, until a decision is reached. Either by the sale of non-exempt property of the deceased. Or a "judgment proof" ruling by the court. Which means there are no fu…nds available to pay the debt(s). (MORE)
Most card accounts can be closed via phone requests. It is preferable to take such action in written form and by certified mail. It would also be advisable to request written confirmation of the status of the account. Any balance on the account is still owed, and in some cases might be required to b…e paid in full on closure of the account. (MORE)
Answer . \nThe usual action is the account is sold to a third party collector. That agency will use regular procedure to collect. Generally it will be by mail or phone contact. There are a few ca's that send collectors to the residence of the debtor, however, this action is seldom used. If a sati…sfactory arrangement cannot be made between the involved parties, legal action may be the next step. Whether a lawsuit is filed depends on many factors, the main one being if the debt is collectible. ("Macky"...email@example.com) (MORE)
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThe purchaser's bank (that issued the credit card) and the vendor's bank (with whom the charge slip is lodged by the vendor) charge a percentage of the purchase amount. This amount essentially comes from the amount that is payable to the vendor. As a result, the vendor… gets about 1 to 3% less than what he would have received had the transaction been paid for by cash.\n. \nSome vendors hence tend to charge higher if you use your credit card\n. \n However \n. \nA merchant has no right to charge more if you use a credit card, although they might offer a discount for cash.\n. \nAdding a surcharge to a credit card transaction would most likely violate the merchant agreement with the credit card company. For example, VisaUSA Rules: "Always treat Visa transactions like any other transaction; that is, you may not impose any surcharge on a Visa transaction." Violation may result in penalties, suspension or termination. (MORE)
Answer . \nWhen a credit card is charged off it means that the company has given up on trying to collect funds on the card and they usually sell the rights to a collection agency and the collection agency will try any means possible to get some money out of you. They usually will send official l…etters, email, and call your house phone, cell phone and work phone if they have access to this information. (MORE)
Answer . \nI am a professional debt collector and would say the best answer would be to either contact your credit card company and see to whom they sold the debt, as they no longer own the debt and therefore can not help you rectify the situation. The other option would be to pull a credit rep…ort on yourself and check to see if the collection agency is on your report, or if there was an inquiry on your report from a collection agency. (MORE)
Answer . After many calls and letters - very stressful! - they will eventually send your account to collections (which is a way of suing you). My grandparents have over $100,000 in credit card debt and the phone calls start at 8am and don't stop until 5pm. Also, you will not be able to apply for …a loan or anything that requires a credit check because it will all be there on the report. No lender would make a deal with someone who has delinquent accounts.. But the collection companies will always offer to settle the debt if you pay as little as 30 cents on the dollar (the average settlement is about 50%). If you take them up on this offer your debt will be reported as settled with a zero balance. Your credit score will begin to improve after all your debts are settled, and within a couple years you will again be getting credit cards offers in the mail on almost a daily basis. (MORE)
Answer . \nNo - I am a collector and service primarily unsecured credit card debt. Per the cardholder agreement that was signed with the credit card company, the account holder is often liable for a LARGER interest rate after an account goes into collections. This may not always be the case, b…ut I rarely see credit card collections that have interest rates lower than 18%. Finance charges are not often applicable when the tradeline has been closed and charged off into collections. (MORE)
How long does it take for credit card company to stop sending you statements without adding late charges if you are not paying your bill?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nEven if it's a few dollars you can affor on every bill (try to pay the minimum payment) do it or they will keep coming after you for as long as it takes. If you don't make some effort to contact the Credit Card Co., and try to work out your payments you could well en…d up in court. When you have a Credit Card you are borrowing money and if you are a responsible individual then you'd try your hardest to pay your debt off and then cut-up your credit card(s). I learned a long time ago that if you can't afford to pay cash for something then you shouldn't get it!\n. \n . \n In the US the debtor will continue to receive billing statements until the account is charged off.\n. \nThe account then will be considered in collections and the debtor will be faced with collection procedures either from a contracted collector of the original creditor or an third party collector who purchased the account.\n. \nAll penalties and interest fees will continue to accrue as long as the account remains unpaid in full or settled by agreement.\n. \nThe original creditor or a third party purchaser have the option of filing a civil suit or in some cases filing with the National Arbitration board to collect the debt.

Answer . A statute of limitations on a credit card typically begins to run at the time of the last correspondance. If you write them a letter, or talk to them on the phone, the debt is still considered active. If the last time you paid is the last time you had any contact, that would be the da…te. (MORE)
Answer . \nThere are legal limits to how much interest can be charged. Usury rates are different in each state, most credit card companies are smart enough not to break the law.
You can either look on your statements for the instructions or call the number on the back of your card.
If you have have credit card debt charged off from your credit report and a collection agency then buys the debt is it legal for them to harass you by phone at work and home How can I stop this?
The collection agency does have a right to contact you and try to collect, but they do NOT have the right to harass you. Third party debt collection agencies are governed by a law known as the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. This act places many restrictions on what these debt collectors can do…. However, since most consumers do not understand their rights, they are routinely abused.. If you want to stop the harassment, send the collection agency a (preferably certified) letter (and be sure to keep a copy for your records) stating that you want them to contact you by U.S. mail ONLY. Upon receipt of the letter, it will be illegal for them to continue calling your work and home.. There are also limits on what times during the day a collector can call you, as well as restrictions on how many times a collector can call you per week. If they are already violating your rights, you may be able to sue them for monetary damages and no longer be liable for the debt. Check out the information on the act below, and contact an attorney if you feel you need legal advice or representation. (MORE)

Typically 2-3% for mastercard and visa. I believe American Express is more. Texas Parks and Wildlife charges 2.25% extra to renew your boat registration online. I think that is to make up the credit card charge backs. ( on a $53 fee). I think creditors also have a minimum charge so that on small… purchases ( < $1-4?) the retailer looses money when you use a credit card. (MORE)
Sure, as long as the fees apply to all customers, not just those using credit cards. In other words, you may raise your marked prices to cover your credit card costs, but you cannot change the price according to how the customer offers to pay.
Most people think credit card and charge card are the same thing. This is not entirely correct. The difference is that the charge card is a special kind of credit card that you have to pay the entire balance off each time you receive a bill. You cannot make a partial payment, and there is no interes…t involved. With a credit card, you can treat it like a loan to yourself. You can make a partial payment when the statement comes in, and then pay interest on the balance each month until it is paid in full. Some people just keep making partial payments and pay interest on credit cards for years and years. (MORE)

Credit Cards vs. Charge Cards . Many people use the terms credit card and charge card interchangeably, but there are important differences. In general, a credit card lets you make purchases for which you are billed later. Most credit card accounts allow you to carry a balance from one billing cycl…e to the next; however, you have to pay interest on that balance. Usually, you have to pay at least a certain amount of your balance each time you receive a bill.. A charge card is a specific kind of credit card. The balance on a charge card account is payable in full when the statement is received and cannot be rolled over from one billing to the next. Because you cannot carry a balance, a charge card doesn't have a periodic or annual percentage rate, so there is no rate for a charge card issuer to disclose..

they will add a late fee to your bill, try and contact you, eventually lower your credit limit, and have a collecting agency contact you

This probably refers to the "card limit" on a given card. It's the maximum dollar amount that can be charged on a card. It could be the maximum limit on a brand new card, or some other limit based on an unpaid balance or new restriction that "lowers the limit" on the card at a given time.. If you h…ave a card with, say, a $10,000 limit, you can buy up to $10,000 at one time (with no balance) on that card. If you have that card and have charged, say, $5,000 on it in the last couple of days, you have a "new" or "effective" limit of $5,000 on it. (MORE)

A charge card you have to pay the full balance at the end of the month. You can buy as much as you want, but you must pay at the end of the month.
