Banana Republic / credit card fraud
Three months ago I received a call from a collection agency stating that I defaulted on a credit card with Banana Republic for $257.00. They claimed that I took out this credit card several years back. As I had never received any kind of bill I was shocked and asked why no bill was ever sent. I was not sure if had taken out a credit card with this store or not as I don't usually use credit cards and if I had, I would never spend so much. I spent time calling the head office of Banana Republic and was totally verbally abused by these people. In the end I learned that they did not have the correct address for me which explained why I never got a bill. I asked for a written statement which I never got.
Today I was contacted again by another collection agency telling me that my debt had been sold to their agency and they now wanted $137.00, I again called Banana Republic. Still I have seen nothing verifying that I ever took out a credit card. Today the woman I spoke with said that they had the wrong information and that I actually owed $37.40 but because they took down the wrong information, they sent the bill off to the collection agency. She actually said, "We are so sorry. We did make a mistake here but there is little we can do about it now. If you pay the collectors and they send us a letter stating you paid them, we will reinstate you." Is this woman daft? She admits that there mistake is costing me and she will kindly reinstate me for paying off their mistake. Never did they offer to pay for their mistake and why she thinks I want to be "reinstated". Well I will never go into that store again. And I still have seen nothing to prove I ever took out a credit card with them in the first place. They were so apologetic and full of "there is nothing we can do. We make a mistake and we are so sorry". What a sick and sad establishment.
