There are maximum interest rates that a credit card company can charge that are set by law, but no credit card company is going to charge more than that. They can raise your interest rate as set out in the terms and conditions they gave you when you applied for the card. Most credit cards have a default interest rate that was communicated to you when you opened the card, which is what they can charge you if you miss payments. It is also required to be put on your monthly statements. You can't sue the credit card company for raising your rates as defined uder the terms of the card.
