UWCS Pre-Approved!

[ Edited ]
I just got a pre-approval from Union Workers Credit Services. Has anyone heard of them? The card comes with a $10,000 CL and %5 APR and a $37 dollar activation fee that is credited back to your account after your 1st purchase.

Re: UWCS Pre-Approved!

A new one on me! On their FAQs page, it says that they're not affiliated with a bank or existing instituion (something like that), which is a bit scary to me.

HSBC has the Union Plus card, which is surprisingly good, and doesn't seem as nutty as other HSBC cards. But I'm clueless on this one, sorry.

I got this offer as well and did research......everyone who signed up paid their $95 and bought stuff and never got their money or the stuff they ordered and never heard from these people again.
