GE Money Bank / unauthorized money/credit score

1 Plumerville, AR, United States Review updated:

i was 18 when i got a GE card because i was having dental work done and couldnt pay it in full so i thought if i got a GE card it would help my credit buil up and be easier payments...WRONG! i am now 23 and am still having trouble with them. the balance on the card was $200 that i charged to the dentist company and after i paid off the $200 i told them to close the account i no longer needed it. about a year later i get numerous bills from them and it went up to $3000.00 from late charges and fees. i called the company and they told me i charged $1000.00 to the dentist when it was really only $200. they argued with me so i printed off the payments and mailed it to them. they still argued. so i called the dentist office and come to find out the GE company sent them an even $1000.00 to credit my dentist account! i told them i had not agreed to that and why in the world would i let someone take extra money that i have to pay for??? so i told them they will need to contact the dentist office and get the money back and credit that to my account and make sure it is closed! still has not been done. they told me they would make a settlement of $1500.00 and i got so tired of dealing with them bc my credit was being so messed up and. i paid them the amount and had checked my score today which has been two years since i have paid them and it still shows i owe them $1500.i went from a 700 score to 490!!! i am furious. i have called numerous times and they tell me my account is closed and its a zero balance but thats not what it says on my credit account! i need something done. spear_lindsey@yahoo.com

    Hi. You should contact the 3 main credit bureaus (Trans Union, Experian, and Eqifax) and provide them with a copy of the check showing that you paid GE Money. Request that they remove GE Money from your credit report. Then, you should file a complaint with BBB against GE Money. Also, you should go on Facebook and create your own facebook account group and call it Done with GE Money and advertise your ordeal so that it reaches the masses - people who have had similar experiences will join your group and provide support.
