On their website, iBill.com claims that they are the “leader in e-transactions”. So then, let me give you one good reason not to buy anything from a merchant that uses iBill: their phone number is disconnected.

I discovered this when I tried to call the phone number on my credit card statement (the same one on their website) when I wanted to inquire about the mysterious continuous charges I’ve been receiving from a transaction I have never authorized (gradesaver.com- an apparent report paper cheat site). Luckily, the charge was only five odd dollars every month, but it�s still a mild irritation that I have had to cancel my credit card for the second time in a little over a year (the first cancellation was because my purse was taken from me at gun-point in the University District). I suppose this also means that it will be the second time in a little over a year that I have to file a fraud protection report with all three credit companies.

Oh well, the plus side of filing fraud protection reports is that I won’t be getting credit card advertisements for another year. I should also add that this is perfect timing as I received my first credit card ad since I was robbed just yesterday.


  1. Hmm, it's easy to read that last sentence as if you were robbed yesterday rather than you received the ad yesterday. Ooh! I have a final in three hours.
