View Full Version : Money I can't tell if I got screwed or saved.

So...my wife has this Equifax subscription to monitor our credit, and she told me that it showed some sort of activity on an old credit card that we don't use any more. We were suspicious of fraud.

So I went to our archive closet and dug out boxes until I found a bill for this credit card that had the customer service number on it.

I called the customer service number and stayed on hold for a while before Hannah, a friendly customer service agent, came on.

I told her what happened, and she looked up my account. "Hmm, you have a $64 charge on here."

"For what?"

She looked it up. "It's a charge for an Equifax subscription."

My wife's Equifax subscription was originally on this old card, and then renewed automatically. The renewal then triggered an activity alert on Equifax, which warned us. I find this quite humorous.

If they then blocked it, they couldn't tell me they did.

I believe that's the financial equivalent of a reach-around.

Well it's simple...if you contest the charge you got saved. If you don't you got screwed.

When I first read the title of this thread I thought you were going to say that you went to a local First Church of the Sodomites Tent Revival...

When I saw the thread it reminded me of my experience with a Baptist Church in South Carolina.

I think you should dispute the charge.
