You are reading an article located at DailyPUMA.com dated August 25, 2009.
(Edit Note, if you are concerned Chase Bank will use your sending your payment to corporate as an excuse to mark you late, you can focus your attention on the COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY INSTEAD. They are receiving comments on the credit card reform bill act until around September 21, 2009. The Comptroller of the Currency phone number is 202-874-5750.)
(Edit Note, number-2) You can call Chase ProActive to try and get a five year payoff that will lock in your monthly payment at what is probably a slightly lower amount than the 2% monthly minimum that you were paying before your monthly payment was raised to 5%. You can still try and get your payment lowered back to a 5 year payback, and any 5% payments you have already made will actually help lower your monthly payment even more. Click anywhere on this paragraph to go to that specific article to learn more.
Edit note number - 3, I discovered another option for trying to deal with Chase Bank that is probably better than the article below. It involves the Chase Bank Balance Liquidation Program.
I am asking Chase Bank customers who want to show their solidarity against Chase Bank and an executive board that;
accepts bailout money from the government, receives federal reserve money at zero percent interest, is building new corporate jet hangars at a cost of over a hundred million dollars, is stagnating customer service jobs at home while expanding customer service jobs halfway around world, has cut home equity lines to well below fair market value, has cut credit card lines on people in the middle of their vacation, that data profiles its own customers to an extreme we are probably not aware of, that manipulates the stock market value of their own company so they can make more money on expiring Chase bank stock options, that raises interest rates on all of their credit cards and then gleefully announces that credit card defaults are up, and that has raised the monthly minimum credit card payment on low interest loans of customers who have never been late with their payments from 300 dollars to 750 dollars....
....I am asking that you, Chase Bank credit card customers, help protest Chase Bank by SENDING YOUR CREDIT CARD PAYMENT DIRECTLY TO THE CHASE BANK CORPORATE OFFICE.
Make these Chase Bank executives EARN THEIR BLOATED PAY AND OBSCENE BONUSES, make them SEE your payments.
Let the Chase bank executive officers and their personnel actually SEE the payment envelope that contains your sweat and stress payment inside. Oh, the INDIGINITY that will bring to the Chase Bank Corporate Offices, to actually have to see the payment envelopes of the customer minions they stomp on with their arrogant attitudes and actions.
Chase Bank seems so aloof about their actions now that their best buddy Barack Obama is in the white house, lets make the executive offices see your payment as a way for you to support your fellow citizen who is being unfairly afflicted by Chase Bank methods and actions.
Remember, the Chase Bank customers who are having their monthly payments raised from 300 dollars to 750 dollars as you read this are the people who WANT TO PAY DOWN THEIR DEBTS, WERE NEVER LATE WITH THEIR PRIOR CHASE CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS, AND, WERE ALREADY PAYING DOWN THEIR CHASE BANK CREDIT CARD DEBT EVERY MONTH!
Increasing credit card payments requirements is not a bad idea, but changing terms on people after an agreement is already in place and forcing customers to accept the change without the right to simply opt out of the BANK INITIATED CHANGE IN TERMS in my opinion is reprehensible.
Defaulting or raising the monthly minimum credit card account if a customer cannot make the bigger payment amount is nothing more than a debtors prison of indentured servitude created by a banking system that has recently been bailed out by consumer tax money!
I can vouch for the Chase Bank mailing address below as it came from written correspondence I received directly from Chase Bank.
PLEASE DO NOT ABUSE THE PRIVILEGE of the phone information by yelling at the people who pick up the phone on the other end. ONLY USE THE PHONE NUMBERS TO VERIFY that Chase Bank received your payment.
BE POLITE! Yes, be polite when calling to verify that Chase Bank received your payment. Politeness will actually freak them out more than if you yell at them. Chase bank will then see that we are a united front, from the polite way we call to verify that our payment was received.
Wait 5 working days from when you mail the payment BEFORE CALLING to then verify that Chase bank corporate office got your payment. I would suggest mailing your payment in REAL EARLY, at least 10 working days ahead of the due date.
BE CAREFUL of a fraudulent attempt to reproduce this article and paste it elsewhere on the internet by someone who may then change the address to a different one that I am providing below! Link those interested directly to this article located at dailypuma.com if possible.
Usually you can google an address to verify that the address is valid. So please feel free to google the mailing address I am providing below to verify that it is an actual valid Chase Bank corporate office address and you should probably call them as well.
However, I no longer think this is the way to go. Chase Bank can harm a million people, even cause them to lose their homes, and the news media doesn't report about it. At the very least, get the best deal possible by learning about the Chase Bank Balance Liquidation Program.
I would also suggest snapping a digital still image of your payment envelope (with the stamp already on it), just before you mail the envelope as proof that you mailed the payment to Chase Bank corporate offices.
Chase Card Services Executive Office

Attn: Becky Dietz or Nancy Stoneman
Once again, I am of the opinion that you should NOT CALL UNTIL FIVE WORKING DAYS AFTER MAILING YOUR CHASE BANK CREDIT CARD PAYMENT, and make sure you MAIL YOUR PAYMENT AT LEAST 10-12 WORKING DAYS BEFORE THE DUE DATE, and IF YOU CALL, BE POLITE, YOU ARE SIMPLY CALLING TO VERIFY THAT CHASE BANK RECEIVED YOUR PAYMENT.
Better to dump our "tea party protest payment" in the laps of Chase Bank executive offices so they can see we are upset, no?
Hmmm, maybe we should mail our payments into the white house, in care of Barack Obama. According to a New York Times article, Jamie Dimon is Barack Obama's favorite Wall Street Banker, maybe Mr. Obama can hand the checks over directly to Jamie Dimon next time they pal around together.
