Sears Complaint - Sears card scam
I am writing this on behalf of my mom. My step dad got a sears credit card some ten year ago with out my mothers knowledge. Nothing extravagant was ever purchased like appliances or the likes. He had a stroke about seven years ago that left him paralyzed and unable to talk. My mother has paid on the card every since, she is only able to pay the minimum because she is a senior on disability. He was a roofer and they have no money to speak of. She lives off her disability check each month. I found out about this a few years ago and have tried to get help from sears many times because she is paying on the interest alone. What ever my step dad owed had been paid for and then some. Of course that’s what sears wants. She does not even know what she is paying for and sears won’t tell her. I believe the last bill said she owed seven hundred dollars. But it will never go down. They even told her she was late one time and added another hundred on for late fee.
She has since got the power of attorney over my step dad just to find out what she is paying on. Sears has not gotten back with her yet. She figures if she finds out that he bought something like a chain saw for two hundred and she has pad them over five hundred over the years maybe they will be a little sympathetic. She is tired of the whole thing and says it would be easer just to pay them the twenty three dollars a month till she passes. A say they are immoral crooks who turn a def ear,
