I thought my payment would be considered for the following month, but no such thing, instead my following billing indicated I was late and I was charged a late fee. How unfair can that be, I send in an over payment and I am considered late. Actually I was a day early for the next months billing period. I called the bank and asked would they please reconsider, I was tolded, it is the computer making the late fee charges. I am so upset at the way this bank treated me. I have made an over payment, I always send my monthly payments, why do they cheat me?
