About four years ago credit card companies suddenly increased their customer’s interest rates to over 23% because…they could. I called my credit card company Chase Manhattan disputing the change and while speaking with a supervisor, suddenly I was listening to a recorded message, which informed me, “Chase Manhattan would no longer accept calls from this number, further correspondence would need to be in writing due to my aggressive TONE!”
Sure we will change the terms of our previous contractual agreement but if you get snippy about our criminal practices, we will ignore you because no one will do anything about it. Now, if you excuse us we need to commit world wide fraud on an epic level.
That was the day I swore that once this debt was paid off, I would NEVER – NEVER do business with JP Morgan Chase Manhattan and since they’re all in bed together Bank of America and Citigroup can suck it too.
By the way did you know in Florence during the Renaissance, the Arte del Cambio – guild of mercantile money – changers who facilitated the city’s international trade- made the cheating of clients punishable by torture? Rule 70 of the guild’s statutes stipulated that any member caught in unethical conduct could be dispcilined on the rack “or other corrective instruments” at the headquarters of the guild. It really was a time of enlightenment.
Don’t you think it is about time that we actually had some sort of justice served for all the ass wipe Wall Street Bankers that made it their life’s mission to impose “creative banking” upon us all?
