There will be a fee to pay your bill...

Context: The other person went on an interview trip, and, somewhere between filling up the rental car and returning it, the credit card went missing. So he cancelled it and that was that.

Except today I realized it was due in a few days and logged in to pay it electronically. And, of course, that account was gone.

Oh. Called the credit card provider, finally punched "0" to talk to a human, and spoke to the very genial Michael. No problem paying it, but.... "it will be plus whatever fees".

Me: "shouldn't be any, it isn't due for a few days"

Michael: "we charge $14.95 to make a phone-authorized transfer payment. But seeing as how your card was lost or stolen, we'll do the right thing and waive that fee."


Make them give back their stimulus money, if they are pulling tricks like that!
