mmmm .. your account manager will be wondering why an expat like you is being cheapskate or suggest you charge to your 'company account' ..Strong Eagle wrote:Got a snail mail letter from OCBC (I am now in the USA) that stated I owed them $1,811 and that I was delinquent.
Given that I have charged zero to my OCBC card in a year, I figured fraud. So, I log into OCBC account only to find that in October they have added a SGD 1,605 annual fee to my card (the "World" card), without bothering to tell me, then have added interest and late charges ever since then.
I now have allegedly had all charges removed and the card cancelled... we shall see in the next 48 hours or so.
$1,605 annual fee? All I can say is, "You've got to be sh*tting me!!!".
Requesting to close an account/cancel a card doesn't stop them charging annual fees.Sergei82 wrote:Why you didn't close your OCBC account when you moved out of Singapore in the first place? I closed my DBS account and cancelled all cards exactly to avoid similar accidents once I got my Standard Chartered account (mandatory since I'm working in that bank).
or maybe a-la Sub Prime, some brilliant banker would have done a calculation and decided if 10% of the people don't look at the statement and pay up .. well, that can add to some of his bonus ..nakatago wrote:
I cancelled my Citibank credit card and they still charged me an annual fee when the statement came. A quick message sorted that out, though but the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing...and happens in more than one country too. I've had friends from back home who had similar stories.
He deserved to be eaten by that Dilophosaurus...along with some credit card people. We should all sic theropods on a certain class of annoying people.Max Headroom wrote:Hello Newman.
