Care Credit / Gemb — get rid off!
Hello: my name is "Lannie Hunt", from Bakersfield, Ca. In may, june, july, of 2006, my family and i took a long waited and deserved vacation to the bahammas, to the atlantas hotel in the capitol of the bahamas, nassau. We arrived at the hotel late, so we retired for the night. Early the next morning we had reservations to go snorkeling in the morning, and in the afternoon we were to go water skiing, while we were water skiing a dolphan surfaced right in front of me, and my wife, we are champion skier's, my wife was able to bypass the dolphan, by swing toward me, but my only hope of bypassing the dolphan was to swing in toward her. But if i did that we both would have collided, and at about 60 - 65 miles per hour could have caused the both great danger, if not "death" for the both of us. So i tried to swing out the opposite direction and get in front of the submerging and resurfacing swimming dolphan. I did manage to get out in front of the dolphan, just as i thought i had definitely swayed out far enough ahead of the submerged dolphan, he stayed under about 10 seconds more than his normal swimming pattern, he surfaced and hit me directly in the side while swimming at full speed. That is the last thing that i remember of the accident. If it were not for the prompt response from the rescue boats that the atlantas hotel provides when you sign-up for the skiing adventure, i would have not been here today. I was unconchace, and on the bottom drowning, in about 100 feet of water. I praise the atlantas hotel for providing this rescue service. I understand that i was under water for about 2 minutes before they had me on the surface, which is just under meractulass. I was at the hospital in less than 20 minutes of the accident. When i awoke just after arriving at the hospital. The doctors did a quick evaluation of my injuries and found that the neck collar that the lifeguards had put me in as i was on their boat before leaving for the shore,and than to the hospital, had saved my life! I ended-up with a broken neck in 2 places, and a broken back in 1 place and 4 broken ribs on my left side. I was in critical condition for 7 weeks. This is where i started calling all of my debtors to tell them about my accident and that as soon as i got home i would call them back when i get home and catch-up on all of my bills. Every one of them sent me a get well gift and told me not to worry that they would take care of everything for me so that i would not endure any negative or derogatory information on my credit record! When i was able to leave and come home, i had been there for over 3 months hospitalized.as soon as i got back home i started making my calls to my debtors,as i promised.when i got to carecredit/gemb, i spoke to a gentleman, named "brock" and he went off on me like i was a bandit, he told me that anyone who would not pay his bills for 90 day's was a deadbeat and scam of the earth, and did not deserve to have anything removed from my credit record , and he would see that my 90 day lates would stay on my credit record for 7--10 years. That he was sick in tired of dealing with deadbeats like me. I even tried to pay the account completely off,but to leave the account open. He refused to take the payment in full, because it would show that i had the means to pay my obligations,and he was not going to let that happen. This remains on my credit report to this day. I feel that this person (not a gentleman) should not be in a manager position, or even a customer service representative. If carecredit/gemb continues to keep a person like this on their payroll, then they deserve to loose every customer that they have.
