Help. Is there anything I can do?

Recommended Posts

I will try to make this as to the point as possible:

 

A number of years ago, a lot of stuff happened and I ended up getting screwed over by family which caused me to run up a lot of debt. Then a couple of years ago, I had a high amount of debt on one of my American Express accounts. The catch with this account is that it has to be paid in full every month. So I was paying $1,000 a month to pay this card off, but because that wasn't the full amount, I was getting hit with a late payment to my credit score every month for 6+ months. I called and talked to them when this first happened and at first they told me, "Don't worry we'll have those removed in 3 months." Then after 3 months they told me, "I'm sorry someone told you that, we'll actually remove them when the card is paid off." Then I was told once it was paid off, "Those should be removed within the next 6 months." And then I was finally told, " I'm sorry you were told that, but we cannot do that." Or something a long those lines.

 

Long story short, my credit, which had previously been very good, has been crushed by a card requiring payment in full every month, even though I was paying $1,000 every month.

 

Is there anything that I can do about this?

 

Thanks

Didn't you know that you had to pay off the balance every month? Why didn't you add the "pay over time" feature to your charge card?

I did know this when getting the card, but did not anticipate having such a high balance I couldn't pay it off. And I have used the pay over time on another card, and they penalize you for it, which is what's BS imo. Why offer an option that you are going to punish a customer for using?

 

I don't need to know what I should have done, because I didn't make a "bad purchase" or anything, I got screwed and had no option but to put this balance on this card. I need to know what to do now, if there is anyway I can repair my credit.
