BIG Credit Card Mistake!
Tuesday, April 19, 2016
Money is a private matter for me, and I seldom write about it. Yesterday, however, a big mistake came to light, and I am still in shock!
Many months ago, I went paperless with one of my two credit cards. Actually, I asked for both the statement over the internet, and a copy mailed to me. I received neither. Chase told me that I had been receiving the a notice of my bill being posted through my email account.
Well, about that time, my mother had problems, and my life got very busy with work and life in general. I paid every bill that came across my desk, but did not notice that this credit card bill was missing. Needless to say, I was in shock when I got a letter in the mail stating that my card would be discontinued if I did not take immediate action. After 95 minutes on the phone with Chase cards, I paid a large portion of the $2,349.49 balance, and thanked God that it wasn't any higher.
My lesson: keep very close eye on credit card bills. They make good money when we make mistakes! While they are not to be trusted, God is trustworthy, and will take care of us, just as He cares for the flowers of the field.
