Bill Me Later - Will Wait and See
VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON -- It looks like they have pulled a bait and switch with me. I opened up a bill me later account with the midset that I would only use it for one purchase at a time and would only use the six months same as cash option. Basically, like my own personal layaway.
It was no problem with the first item, a ukulele, which I paid off in full around two months after I purchased it. The day I paid off the Ukulele, I also purchased a pair of shoes, ON SIX MONTHS SAME AS CASH FINANCING. You can most likely tell what the issue is. I hadn't looked at the account for two months and my wife said we got something in the mail about pay my bill or be sent to collections. I called and they stated that the item was not a promotional item and that instead of owing 89.96 I owed $ 156.00 due to late fees. Of course the first person I talked with was happy to take off the last financing charge if I paid in full.
Nope, asked for a supervisor, which I did get. She stated that the item would be put up for review which is currently in the works. I told her I would call her next Wednesday to see what they found out. If they jack me around, I will probably get some fees waived, pay it in full, and then ask for a written copy of the dispute, hang up the phone and call the attorney general for my state to be added to the list of people against Bill me later. I will also cancel my PayPal account. No use in dealing with anyone associated with Billmelater.
