Target Complaint - Paying Off Credit Card Balance
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Jan 2009 just happened to be a good month for me and I made some money. I have had a Target Visa credit card for a while and over the last few months have used it to pay my bills racking up a large balance.
On Jan 29 I paid my balance in full - Good to put that rascal down. After a couple of days I checked my online statement and noticed that my available balance was ZERO even though my current balance was ALSO zero.
I called to ask and was told that due to the Patriot Act my LARGE payment was being classified as a terrorist money laundering action and that my card privileges were suspended for 7-10 days.
After 10 days, with still no available balance, I called and was told I would have to wait and additional 1-2 days. If they really mean 12 days why lie?
A supervisor then tells me it will be only 24 hours - Version Three. This company treats you like crap then lies to you expecting you will just take it. They can go down to somewhere horrible in my opinion.
