I used "Bill Me Later" for a particular service, but NEVER received a bill. I did receive a notice via e-mail that not only was my bill past due but I have an additional $30.00 late fee. When I reviewed my account it stated that I decided to go paperless, which I didn't, but the only invoice I received via e-mail was also too late not to have a late charge.

Therefore I never received anything in order to pay in a timely manner and avoid a late charge. I think this is a scam.

First off, you shouldn't bother with this service since they will do a hard credit inquiry for each purchase. My credit score dropped 17 points after making two purchases totaling $109. Until I signed up with these jerks, my credit score hadn't been under 800 in nearly 20 years. To make it worse, I'm now having to fight them for the $10 discount they offered upon sign up.

This was one terrible mistake to have made and I regret having ever heard of this awful company.
Bill Me Later is a great company that lends you money. I have never found a problem with them and I love the fact that you can order and pay later. It gives you 28 days to order your product and then you have those 28 days to pay:) I have used it for the past 2 years esp. around the holidays when the stores have extra deals. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 01/17/2011Add reply
I have had satisfactory use of Bill Me Later in past. My balance was paid in full. Attempted to use at Christmas and payment was ran through my bank account instead. Attempted again and once again ran straight through my account. I called customer help and my only advice was to send package back and attempt to again use Bill Me Later. I don't think so. If I wanted to run the payment through my account I would have done so and not chose the Bill Me Later tab. Closing my account with Bill Me Later because it's just not worth the mix up.Add reply
CALIFORNIA -- I complained to Bill Me Later (r) that I always pay my bills on time, and that I didn't know how my payment on PayPal got routed in this direction. To my knowledge, I never gave my permission and never received a statement when asked about what my balance and specific charges were, Josh couldn't give me the source of two of the charges. He said they were 6 months before I found out they had occurred; instead I also owed on something I paid by a previous credit card. When asked why I wasn't charged interested, he said it must be because of a promotion and that I had until April 2014 before my charges would occur.
All this information was wrong; I canceled my Bill Me Later, which had to be done on the phone. I think this company for should be investigated for misleading the public.
ATLANTA, MAINE -- I have used Pay Pal for years. It was a good and fast way to pay for products in a safe manner. But Pay Pal began their Bill Me Later program and, at first, it appeared to have some usefulness. As time when on, they began to change their entry choice field to make Bill Me Later to be the default circle choice and by doing so get the consumer get in debt when the consumer's intent was to pay directly through the credit card. Once you inadvertently don't change the default, you end up in their quagmire of weird payment times, amounts, and you have to call to get it corrected...if you can. The default change I believe is a subtle variation on the "bait and switch" and may be illegal...but this company probably has very good lawyers to just get by the intent of fair practice.
If they are honest, they should clearly make the default Pay Pal and the other choice, Bill Me Later, as a condition to be chosen specifically by the user.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Bought an $18 product and attempted to pay for it with Pay Pal. Instead a pop-up for Bill Me Later popped up and the only way I could pay for the item was with Bill Me Later. I thought that's OK, they'll take it out of my Pay Pal account at the end of the month. Thinking it would be paid automatically, I ignored the mail notices (bad idea).
Now after two months of late fees($35 + $35), I owe $90. for an $18. item. Don't get caught using Bill Me Later.
How stupid is this? A rejection from Bill Me Later, via letter, to the address used to try to sign up, saying the address was invalid. Is there anyone alive there? Or are zombies sending out the letters. Really, this is the stupidest rejection letter ever. Add reply
