Bill Me Later Complaint - Bill Me Later - Is this Illegal?
TIMONIUM, MARYLAND -- I used Bill Me Later about a year ago and paid off the balance. Never heard anything from them. Used it recently to send flowers. Paid the amount of the sale immediately. Received no invoice or statement or notification from them. 2 months later I receive a statement saying I owe them $107.00. Say WHAT! I called to ask what was going on. They told me it's fees from last year accumulated and $25 monthly fee from recent purchase. I paid it off again (fuming) using my debit card. Then BML submitted monthly charges against an old bank account on file that was set up for a one time payment. Since the account has had nothing in it for quite some time, the charges bounced. Now I owe the bank $300 in charges and BML still thinks I owe them. Supposed to get call back from manager. Doubt I'll hear from them. I put in contact info in case you need it (though they were purchased by EBay, so not sure it's still valid). These people su-- and should be sued for dishonest billing practices, usorous interest rates and just plain 'ol thievery! Though the way they built up their company leads me to expect nothing but thievery! http://www.merchanttalk.com/2008/10/06/bill-me-later-fire-sale-to-ebay-prevents-sue-me-later/
