Comenity and Bill Me later confussion

I spoke to someone at the comsumer relations department just now (1-800-303-1368) they claim they will have to report the bill me later accounts due to federal law

 

I was actually calling regurading  an Total Rewards caerd but IO thought I sneak that question in, they seem like at that number they are upper level reps with Comenity

There is Comenity Bank and Comenity Capital Bank - two affiliated entities under the Comenity companies umbrella.  Comenity Bank (previously known as WFNNB) is the mainline private label arm which oversees the card programs for Victoria's Secret, Express, J.Crew, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, etc.  Comenity Capital Bank (previously WFCB) is the "higher-end" private label arm that oversees card/retail programs such as Barneys New York, Bill Me Later, etc.  Usury laws that govern each company is based on the charter where they underwrite each of their private label portoflios.

There's no law saying a lender has to report anything. However, if they do report, the law says it must be accurate.

Not at all.  BML isn't the only hidden tradeline out there.
