It all starts with a merchant I ordered from who
did not send ALL of the order. so naturally I
filed a dispute when the merchant ignored my
requests for the rest. Barclay basically just
added a note to my account and it went on my
credit report (just the dispute note, which can
harm you if youre trying to buy a house)! They
also said I still have to pay the disputed amount
and if they rule in my favor
then I will get credit (Luckily the merchant made
good so I paid it). LOL Go Eff yourself!
Secondly, to get a limit increase, which Ive had this card for a couple years now with a 1500 limit, they put a mark on my credit again by checking. None of my other cards do that and I have a lot. They still turned me down for an increase.
Thirdly, which doesnt have anything to do with me, but still, My friends husband had an account opened is his name by his ex wife unknowingly and she maxed it out. Barclay is still making him pay for it! He obviously won the case against herin court and she has to pay it but cmon, do you think she will? Hes still responsible and still has to pay it off.
So with all of that, and maybe its petty to you, but there are other cards out there that are on the customers side. Discover, the best at customer service, Chase, Citi, Capital one, Theyre all 10 stars better than this hunk of crap Barclay and as soon as I buy my house in the next few months, I am cutting them off. I have stopped using it completely.… read more
