Canadian Credit Card Rule Changes Update – continued

I wrote on Friday how I called the Finance Ministry and couldn’t get ahold of anyone to update me on the latest credit card rule changes and left a message at 9:08am on February 26, 2010. Well the wait wasn’t that long as a cheerful employee called me back today Monday at 1.35pm. Although it wasn’t the most helpful call as they said that the Minstry of Finance was working on updating the press release I had identified as not entirely complete, and they took my email address and said I’d be sent an update when it was done.

So if we’re keeping score it would be:

Customer service: 8/10 (would have been better to speak to someone “live” on Friday, but a quick call back)

Resolving the issue: 2/10

So we wait for the email update….

  1. Absolutely don’t borrow money to pay on boewrrod money. You are creating a foundation of disaster. Pay for you necessities first food, shelter, and utilities and attack the debt with the lowest balance. If you can’t pay minimum payments on everything, call the ones you can’t pay and tell them you can’t pay. If you do happen to get a loan probably at a ridiculous rate if you have bad credit cut up all your credit cards so you won’t dig a new whole. It happens very often when people get loans to pay off other debts. Then you have all your old debts back plus a new loan. Try to sell stuff, work overtime, get a second job, whatever. Earn more money of your own.
