How do you understand credit card application terminology?
Credit card terminology . All credit card applications (click for a sample) must contain certain key information in a disclosure box. Here's how to interpret those terms.. The interest rate you will pay, on an annual basis, if you carry over balances on purchases from one billing cycle to the next. If the card has a temporary introductory rate, the rate that applies after the temporary rate expires is also stated. (For more about credit card rates, click here.) This is also called as APR.. The interest rates you will pay, on an annual basis, if you get a cash advance on your credit card, if you transfer a balance from another credit card, or if the card issuer applies penalty rates. (More information on the penalty rate may be included outside the disclosure box -- for example, in a footnote on the application.). If the card has a variable rate instead of a fixed rate, this section will tell you how the variable rate is determined. (More information may be included outside the disclosure box -- for example, in a footnote on the application.). The number of days you have to pay your bill in full without triggering any finance charges.

A minimum finance charge usually applies only when a finance charge is imposed, that is, when you carry over a balance.. Cash Advance Fee: Any charge imposed when you use
Are credit card companies or banks required to keep on file the original credit application?
addendum to question: want to know same thing because mbna is insisting my ex boyfriend is a co-signer and i know for sure he was an additional card holder. my bad debt is screwing up his credit and i went through official channels, filed required paperwork and can't get his name released from the debt. I asked for proof that he was a co-signer and they said their records don't go back that far. Then, I win, right? Think about this for a minute. If he was just an additional card holder then if my company which is in the top "500" goes broke [they gave me the card I didn't want it]then I will have to pay their bill!!! I don't think so. Have an attorney write them a letter his name will disappear before the ink is dry. There is a difference in additional card holder and an authorized user when it pertains to personal accounts. If in the original agreement that was made it notes that an additional card holder will be designated a joint account holder, the creditor can report account activity on the person's credit report and hold said person responsible for debt repayment. Authorized user's are not responsible for the debt, but some creditors will still take (and can legally take) said person to court to try to recover money owed.

Can you sue your credit card company?
Answer . It depends on what they did. You would need to talk to a lawyer.\n. \n . \n Absolutely. It takes a lot of research, stamina and just plain guts but it is a given in the world of litigation that the debtor can always find a casus belli which can be used as the basis of a suit against the creditor.

Can a credit card company sue you?

What can credit card companies get when they sue you?
Being in the collections business, I will guarantee you that people get sued by credit card companies everyday. What can they get?

If you want to know what can happen but don't start asking, you will run out of time. Waiting could be it's own answer. The last posting was probably written by a bill collector. The chances that a credit card company will sue you is very very slim. If the credit card company sells your debt to a Collection Company the Collection Company cannot legally sue you in most states. The big question is" How long can you put up with harassing phone calls and letters?? If it doesn't bother you, don't worry about it. . Sorry, but the above entry is not quite correct. Credit card debt is considered unsecured debt. That does not mean that the issuer or the third party purchaser cannot take legal action to recover monies owed. It is true that the CC company itself seldom sues but sells the account to a collection agency. Collectors do sue for any amount they can get because that is how they make money. All states allow lawsuits for defaulted debts. The issue is not if a person can be sued but what property real or personal can be seized for the repayment of the debt. That matter is where state laws differ in what can be taken, how it can be taken and what the amount can be. For example, garnishment laws differ state-to-state.
