2 more Barclays shutdown
From a reader last weekend – “So joining the big boys league today – my Barclays accounts got axed. Not much MS, around 5-6k inconsistently, and I did cfbp 3 times each month for past 2 months and am with Vinh that it should be the primary reason for s/d. I however took my wife off as the AU not 3 days ago so her own newly opened account looks fine for now. Had 70k points with A+. Bottomline, small/any MS + cfbp will get you axed faster than big MS with legit bank payments, I think!”
The 2nd one is from aegt who commented on Wednesday in this post – “Whole family got shutdown. I think WM BP did it.”
Followup to my ATM MO issue
From this week’s story, the ATM card’s bank called me on Thursday telling me that they contacted the ATM bank and the ATM bank said there was no record of me even using the other bank’s card in the ATM!?! The lady asked me if I was delusional and if I had actually used the other bank’s ATM card. I told her I wasn’t crazy because if I had used the ATM owner’s card, the rep and I wouldn’t have had that discussion and I wouldn’t have wasted an hour driving over to her bank. She then stated, “Well how would they know your account number?” “Well that’s a great question because I have no clue either lady!” She told me to contact them to find out. I told them no thanks, the money’s in my account already; I don’t need/want to know how they figured it out. Case closed.
Paying the IRS with a PPBDC for 1% hopefullky
I owed taxes this year. Instead of just paying with my checking account, I tried to go to pay1040.com and used my PPBDC. It auto detected it as credit. NO thank you. Payusatax.com however let me pick a debit card option. Here’s hoping I get 1%. I felt the $2.69 fee was worth the risk.
Some idiot got my wife’s Discover card and tried to do a cash advance to USBank. If that’s not the most idiotic move, I don’t know what is…well except for the idiot who used a stolen cc to buy furniture DELIVERED to his address.
