I closed Nextcard several months ago - and it showed "closed by Consumer Request"....I definitely wanted to avoid Merrick Bank!
I looked at my email today and saw this:
October 31, 2002
Due to the recent acquisition of your NextCard account by Merrick Bank, it will be necessary for you to update your payment address if you use an online bill pay service to pay your account.
Please contact your bill pay service and update your payment address to:
P.O. Box 5721
Hicksville, NY 11802-5721
Also, please update your account number to the new one listed on your Merrick Bank monthly billing statement or credit card.
Thank you for your continued patronage and we look forward to serving your financial needs for many years to come.
I wonder if I'll get a card? I wonder if SOMEBODY GOT A CARD - I didn't...
And the band plays on......hmmmmm
Re: MERRICK BANK Hassle No Doubt....
I paid for the great call to a Merrick Rep - she was nice and asked for my Nextcard acct #. I had it of course, then she said it showed the account was closed. She asked if I would like to apply for a new card - I thanked her and told her not at this time. LOL!
It worries me that this email was generated somehow...hopefully just an internal glitch at Merrick.
