Discover Card Complaint - Rip-off artists of the elderly
Discover card set up automatic debit payments for my 83-year-old mother. She recently suffered a stroke and became disabled, and in an attempt to keep up on her bills, we sent a check for $100, not knowing that Discover card would automatically debit her account for the entire balance. I called and asked for the check to be returned but was told they would hold onto it for 6 months. This was not acceptable, so I stopped payment on the check. The next month, they charged us $25 for this. In addition, I have been trying to stop the wallet protection debited from her checking each month. I have written, called, threatened, and done everything I can think of. We received a letter stating that she was no longer "allowed" to be in the automatic debit program. Imagine my surprise when today, a fee for $27.99 was automatically debited from her checking, and that with a 0 balance! This company preys on the elderly and steals money. I am certain she will never see this $27.99, but I'm wondering how much they will be taking next month. People: do NOT authorize automatic debits from your checking account. DISCOVER CARD PEOPLE ARE THIEVES WHO WILL GET THEIR MONEY IN ANY WAY THEY CAN, WHETHER OR NOT IT'S ETHICAL OR HONEST.
