Eufora Prepaid Card (credit Builder) STAY FAR AWAY!!!!

[ Edited ]

Okay guys i have had this card for 17 month now.. It is a prepaid card that basically takes $10.00 per month from your card and reports an installment loan for $220 on your credit report. Basically its a rip-off... They completely removed all payment history from my credit reports and are telling me that i cannot cancel my card and that i have to still make the payments even though its not reporting on my credit... They are very rude and if you call them you get the same rude lady everytime. They only have one person that answer the phone!! She is rude as hell!

 

STAY AWAY FROM THIS CARD. www.eufora.com... RIP-OFF!!

 

My girlfriend has there card as well and they never even reported to her credit report and its been 6 months!!!

I had that card way back when, in my dark credit days, and it never even reported. The fees were tremendous too. I ended up focusing on secured CCs instead.

Now if we could only get the VP of the big banks to respond to our complaints!!!

 

I agree with other comment... focus on secured cards if you really can't get any cards unsecured, but Household, Capital One, Credit One are all known to hand out cards pretty freely.

MY advice would be to stay away from all ccc that are named anything other than the big names.  If you have to get a secured card go to your local cu, most will grow with you in 6 months!  and its local and all disputes can be handled face to face.  not over the phone or emails!

+1 I agree theres no fee for these fee harvesting products. Even if you dont go with a credit union either capital one or orchards secured programs are fine.

It is perfectly legal and common to patent bad ideas, so even without knowing what your business model is your use of capslock really just makes me smirk.
