Subject: Oops, your payment failed
Your most recent scheduled payment for your WealthyAffiliate.com membership
failed and we want to make sure that you do not lose access to WA for any
reason unknown to you. We were unfortunately unable to charge your credit
card on file and would like to know if this is because you intended to
leave, or if this is an unknown issue with your credit card?
Oh no! How embarrassing!
First off, I have no intention leaving WA as I just started Sept. 2 . Every day, I am looking forward to reading the blogs, commenting and liking.
What happened? Error punching the number? Hit an “overlimit”? Others?
A week ago, while scrutinizing my statement, I noticed a credit card charge by an unfamiliar marketing company. The amount is just $50.89. I alerted my card issuer and told me they are cancelling the card right there and reporting to their Fraud Unit for further investigation. I was told that this could be another scheme by scrupulous marketers charging an initial amount and when successful, charging again but for a bigger amount.
The irony was, the cancelled card is on file with WA , used when I first enrolled on Sept. 2. No doubt, my payment failed. I responded to Kyle suggesting that card on WA file has been recently “compromised and was cancelled”.
Goodness,what a hassle! When I got that notification from Kyle, I sprung into action. A great reminder! How many more companies did I forget to notify about that cancelled card ? It took me hours filtering old statements just to ensure I have the list to advise of my new card account.
The lesson to my story: check every details and charges on your statements. You will never know…..it may cost you a fortune!
