COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO -- After reading the other reviews regarding MBNA, it seems that this company has developed a pattern. I also agreed to terms and agreements over the phone with a customer representative and received by post a completely different agreement. When I telephoned MBNA, their response was that they sent me in writing the terms and agreement and I should have read and been more cognisant of their terms. Unfortunately, I trusted MBNA to give me the correct information over the phone and not change the terms of agreement in writing. Silly me! MBNA definitely changed the terms of agreement in writing and apparently this is a patterned practice for this company. They really should be ashamed of themselves. The second MBNA representative that I spoke with agreed with me that I would have been better off keeping my two MBNA credit cards rather than consolidating them. Not only did MBNA increase the percentage rate that we were paying on the credit cards but they also charged $700 to consolidate the loans.
If MBNA would like to repair the damage, I request that my $700 be refunded and my initial - agreed upon rate of 8.9% be instated.
