Got some medicine for my cancer. It came overnight. Yeah.

BT checks from Citi (now with the fee dropped from 5% back down to 3%)   Automobile title from payoff of our last auto loan.

Got an advertisement from BoA about the Alaska Airlines Business card. I already have the personal one and used to have the Business card but closed it 1.5 years ago. Actually need the 40K bonus offer

1. Pre-approved Credit one Visa. I read "Credit line up to $15,000". Then I read it again and realized it was "Credit line up to $1,500". Laughed out loud. Put it in the shredder.

 

2. FNBO Visa application. This one is kind of interesting. Variable interest rate of prime (currently 3.5%) for purchases and balance transfers. There is a $99 annual fee, and the BT fee is 5%.

Letter for Water bill investigation concluded letter stating that they are reducing my bill by $150. I had to jump thru hoops since my water bill had jumped from 60 to 200 with NO change in usage besides when it happened the utility company came out and change meters. Yay. :)

FNBO must be getting hungry. Mine has no AF or other fees.

All I got today, was an official looking letter from the Sheriffs Office (the kind, with the double window).

 

Anyway, after half a stroke, I open it, and they want a donation.

 

A-holes :angry:

That's happened to me too. A real pisser. A couple weeks back on a different occasion, I walk out of my apartment as two Sheriff's deputies were walking up the steps. I about chocolate myself. They were going to the apartment above me to serve someone.......yep you guessed it, neighbors got served over a credit card.

I know he's a teenager and we were all once that age. But come on, he knows school tracks the usage of the laptop and what's on it. They signed the consent form when they were issued. Embarrassing conversation i tell you. To think i was happy when my water bill was $150 less.

 

Ps. Figure i post this and everyone gets a kick out of it.

      So- my credit file has not significantly changed in a long time (and I qualified for long-term zero% auto loan back in April).
       
      I do carry significant balances on my credit cards, but always pay (auto-pay) significantly more than minimum payments. 
       
      but something triggered an odd cascade in the last few weeks. 
       
      I got notice one of my Synchrony accounts had suddenly had the credit limit dramatically reduced. I contacted them and they said they periodically check credit report and make changes. The letter they sent indicated high balances to limit on cards. 
       
      a day later ai get another letter from Synchrony- for a second account with them was having the limit reduced...
       
      we all know this impacts your credit score, as it messes up your utilization %.
       
      today, I got notice from a different bank- that, due to higher credit utilization rates, they dramatically reduced my limit in that card - 
       
      Which of course now even further rips my credit score...
      And this afternoon, I get notice from Synchrony that my Automotive account (that has never had particularly high balance can limit) was having a limit reduction down to the current balance!
       
      What’s going on?  I have NEVER been late, never payed just the minimum payments on any accounts... 
       
      Is there some massive banking “surprise” on the horizon?
       
      I did recently put a credit freeze on all 3 bureaus due to someone filing for unemployment with my name/SS# and I filed a police report on that. 
       
      I have paid credit monitoring service- and there is nothing new or odd on my CR...
       
      So what’s going on?
