A couple of months ago I got a statement from a credit card company saying

that I still owed $1.22...this was strange since I had already paid the

balance in full. I called and asked for an explanation, and got some

nonsense I suppose someone somewhere understood...something like a

recursive finance charge. So I sent in a check for $2.00. Now, the credit

card co. sends a statment so long as you have a non-zero balance. So they

are now spending 32 cents a month to tell me I have a balance of 78 cents.

touchee.

You know, that reminds me of the article about 5 years back from a guy who

got a credit card bill stating that he owed $0.00.



He ignored it and threw it away.



Next month he got another, did the same thing.



The next month they sent him a very nasty note stating they were going to

cancel his credit card if he didn't send them $0.00. He called them,

talked to them, they said it was "a glitch" and told him they'd take care

of it.



The following month he tried to charge something and couldn't. He called

the credit card company who again said they'd take care of it. The next

day he got his bill for $0.00 stating that he was very delinquent.



The man figured the credit card company would take care of it, so he

didn't worry. The next month he got a bill for $0.00 stating that he had

10 days to pay or his account was going to collection.



He mailed the credit card company a check for $0.00, and the credit card

company's computer processed it, noting that his account was now paid in

full.



A week later, the man's bank called him asking him what he was doing

writing a check for $0.00. He explained and they said, "well, your $0.00

check has caused our check processing software to fail. We now can't

process ANY of our checks from that day electronically because that $0.00

check is causing the program to abort."



The man, who had been considering buying his wife a computer for her

birthday, bought her a typewriter instead.
