HSBC North America Complaint - Um....Really? - Gold Mastercard
I have had a Gold MC for longer than I can remember, have always paid my bill on time and have spent and paid off tens of thousands of dollars. I received a letter to make a purchase on my $11,000 limit, zero balance account or my account would be closed. I meant to and was in the middle of moving from Georgia to California and never made the purchase. They consequently closed my account, my debt to income ratio went down, my FICO plummeted and my credit was strongly negatively affected. I am very dissatisfied about that but rely on my other credit cards who have not cancelled on a customer who has never been late, paid tons of interest over the years and always carried the card on him when leaving the house. I see MC applications online and in the mail and always ignore them as they have turned their backs on me regardless of how it affected my credit. I have seen the news stories that relate how credit card companies consider customers who don’t pay much interest and never any late fees to be the real deadbeats since the company doesn’t make much money on them.
