Juniper Bank Informative - Barclays Frontier MasterCard Fraud
DENVER, COLORADO -- I used to be one of those "aggressive" sales pitchers at the Denver Airport for the Frontier MasterCard. We were so pressured to get people to complete the applications and we were basically encouraged to say anything we had to in order to get the app. done. While most sales people start out trying to be honest, we quickly saw that the ones being most rewarded were the ones who out right lied to people. This job, if you brought in the numbers, could pay out anywhere from $200 to $1000 a day with possible "bonus" on top of that. We were (and they still are) paid by the completed application, not whether or not it was approved. It was nothing for me to bring home $2000 - $4000 a week for part-time work. Sounds like easy money right?
Well, if you're a good liar and can pull the wool over peoples eyes, then maybe so. The complaints you read about the card are true, excessive late fees for being one minute late, being charged a higher interest rate than stated, rate hikes for no reason, other misc fees that are hidden. Barclays will do anything they can to get a penny out of their customers. The only way this card works is if you pay your balance off every month and do it ON TIME. And if you are at the Denver Airport, stay away from the sales people. In the end, I left because in spite of the good money made, I could not live with myself anymore doing that job, and believe me, I was good at it.
For the most part, I tried to be honest, but when our head Manager put the pressure on us, I too was guilty of doing what I had to do to keep my numbers up. Just Beware - if sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
