Re: BILL ME LATER is a scam, impossibe to cancel

You were lucky that you actually GOT bills -- I received one bill, which I paid promptly, and didn't recall charging anythign else.  Then I got my second bill two months later saying that I was late for a small charge, and adding a $35 late fee for a bill I never received (I searched my SPAM filter too) and the "late fee" was significantly higher than the original charge.  This is really a scam, or at least a badly run business, and the fees are far in excess of ANYTHING that is reasonable. That's why congress passed the Credit Card bill of rights, and I think this is a way to act like a credit card (e.g. outrageous late fees) without being covered by the consumer's bill of rights.

Re: BILL ME LATER is a scam, impossibe to cancel

I have been a loyal BML customer for years - long before they linked with Paypal. I have never had any problems. It's like an electronic credit card - you never have to carry it in your wallet. Make your payments on time and no worries just like any other type of credit. The only thing that has changed is the minimum payment is $35 even if your balance is only $40. Like any other credit it is there if you need it - just don't use it if you cannot afford it!

I have been using BML since Christmas and I have had a very positive experience so far. Actually I was delighted with the service they offered.

Just wait until you are the victim of a cyber criminal BillMeLater will immediately close your account no questions asked and they will not pursue the criminal. With the amount of cyber crime out there it is just a matter of time!

I have been a good credit customer of BillMeLater for years as well BUT that is not enough. If you are the victim of a cyber criminal BillMeLater will close YOUR acoount and you can NEVER EVER open another account and they will not pursue the cryber criminal.

I agree. I find that if you READ all the terms and conditions regarding ANYTHING you do on the Internet, you'll escape any kind of turmoil or issues. I've used BML for tons of stuff. If you pay attention to the statements and due dates, it's nothing more than like "an online credit card."

Re: BILL ME LATER is a scam, impossibe to cancel

Deception and deceit: eBay owns PayPal, paypal owns the horrible bilk-you-later fly-by-night credit scammers. DO YOURSELF THE JUSTICE: AVOID THE BILL ME LATER SCAM , YOU WILL NEVER KNOW A BETTER "SLEEP NUMBER." NOT WORTH THE AGGRAVATION, WASTED HOURS TRYING TO UNDO THE SECOND YOU CLICKED "LINK MY ACCOUNT"... CAN'T UNLINK WITHOUT CALLING THE KREMLIN ... PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A BIG SERVING OF CONDESCENSION AND DROOLING SCRIPT READERS...QUEUE THE DUDE " HELLO MY NAME IS PEGGY" HOURS OF RUN AROUND AWAIT YOU. CALL BILKULATER, NO, NO, GOT TO CALL PAYPAL, NO, NO, CALL PAYPAL, PAYPAL BOUNCE YOU BACK TO BILKULATER. ONE BIG SCAM. YOUR $10 SIGNUP BONUS TURNS INTO $50 SURCHARGE WHEN YOU NEVER GET BILLED LATER. YOU ONLY GET BILKED. THIS IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT BIG FINANCIAL SCAM OF THE NEW DECADE, EBAY, PAYPAL, BILLYOULATER SCAMMING THEIR CUSTOMER BASE JUST TO SQUEEZE THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY OUT OF 1.5% FEE. 12 YEARS NO NEGATIVE EBAY FEEDBACK, 11 YEARS NO PROBLEM WITH PAYPAL BUYING OR SELLING...ONE SECOND CLICKING BILL-ME-LATER...I'M READY TO QUIT ALL THREE FOR LIFE. COMMON SENSE SAYS IF YOU CAN LINK IN ONE CLICK, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO UNLINK JUST AS QUICKLY. COMMON DECENCY DEMANDS IT, NOT THIS TOTAL LACK OF ETHICS. SOMEONE CALL THE COPS, HIDE YOUR WALLET. TRULY A SCAM.
