Wamu Credit Visa / Hidden fees
DON'T USE YOUR WAMU VISA OVERSEAS!!! Wamu's Visa card is now charging 1% for every transaction made overseas. No where do they articulate these charges in the contract sent with my card. It is a complete rip off and is just another way credit card companies are sticking it to the small guy.
Big brother Wamu even had the audacity to say that I need to call them to inform them when I travel. They claimed it was for my "protection from fraud." Yet last time I traveled overseas they permitted my card to be charged despite the fact I hadn't called them for permission. So the fraud angle of their explanation is a complete falsehood.
I then asked if I did call in advance would they wave the 1% fee for every charge? they said no you will always be charged when traveling overseas.
