I have gotten 17 calls from my bank in as many days.
It hasn’t been a consistent one call a day either. At first it was one call every two or three days.
Yesterday I got five.
Do you think this may have something to do with the fact that I switched my bank account to a lower fee option recently? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I only paid them $1.69 in fees this month? Nah, that couldn’t be it….
If there is something important they need to tell me, they leave me a message. These calls don’t leave messages. I finally picked up the phone on Monday and talked to a very sweet girl who wanted to know if I was happy with my banking and if there was anything I wanted to do or change with my accounts. A courtesy call if you will. I told her that I was satisfied with my banking at the moment, but that since I switched to a lower fee account I’ve been getting inundated with calls from the bank. She very quickly apologized and I asked if she could take me off their calling list for anything other than emergencies. She said we she would, and we ended our brief conversation.
I know it takes a while for calling lists to get updated, but I’ve received another seven calls since then. Seriously now…
I’ve never been at the receiving end of a collections call, but I’m looking at the list of calls from my bank and I’m beginning to wonder if this is how it feels to have a collections agent after you, minus the money stress.
Maybe they’re not happy because I’m paying off my debt too fast The amount of money I pay them monthly in fees and interest has dropped from around $100 a month to less than $30 this past month. I expect I’ll be somewhere around $10 next month.
Yeah, they’re probably not too happy about that.
We’ll see how they feel about it when I start buying their stock and they pay me back my interest and fees in dividends. It’s coming.
