If You Are Planning To Leave AT&T – READ THIS

If you are planning to leave AT&T,read this. This is a true story.

I made the switch to T-Mobile. They were really pleasant and helpful and I’m amazed at all the features I was missing by having AT&T.

I’m pretty ticked off at AT&T now as they just charged me for a month in advance for Oct 20-Nov 20. I signed up with T-Mobile On Friday night Oct 23. They ported over my # to my new phone.

Service was less expensive but had all sorts of additional features. I called AT&T today to let them know just to but the November they charged me back on my CC. I was informed that they don’t do that, they just KEEP YOUR MONEY.

So I said to the customer service rep, You mean you just charged my credit card for next month, I have NO Service with you but you get to keep my money for NOTHING. She said yes that’s right you should have canceled your account before we took the money.

To me that did NOT seem right. It’s not so much the hundred plus $$$ they took, but it’s the principle. What about poor people that could not afford that? I believe in treating people right and helping the little guy.

I checked with my attorney to see if that is legal. They didn’t think so either so will be following up on that.

I also think the Federal trade commission needs to hear about companies that keep your money for service they are not going to give. I am no longer connected to AT&T and they plan on keeping my money……. WRONG. I guess they don’t make enough billions of $$$.

I’m writing this blog to let everyone know……if you play on leaving AT&T, find out what day they bill you and leave on the day before or you will pay a month for nothing but AIR. That is just totally unethical.

T-Mobile told me if I didn’t the service I could come back and they would cancel it, and refund me all my money. That is a company that cares.

Politics

I’ve never been involved in politics in my entire life. To me it’s a boring subject, and I’ve always felt that most politicians say what they think we want to hear. Politics are really quite a nasty thing.

The past 4 years have been so disturbing to me that I’ve decided this year to do my part for change. I volunteered today to work in the campaign office for the rest of the time till election.

In the USA I’m totally appalled to see how our country is going to the dogs. There are an awful lot of people out of work. There are people that can’t afford their homes and many more living on the streets. I find it disgraceful that our present administration is sending our tax dollars to counties that totally hate us while ignoring our own country.

It’s time for a TRUE change. I’m going to do my best to work for a big change in the coming years. God help us all if we don’t get these things turned around. I’m praying the good Lord will help us take our once great country back.

1% Not for real

I had several people tell me my prior post was not for real.

Here is the link they sent me:
http://www.snopes.com/politics/taxes/debtfree.asp

I honestly don’t know what to believe as the other link on snopes says it is for real. I guess all of us need to keep a close eye on this and let our voice be heard if we can.

IMPORTANT notice, US government wants more of your $$$$

I thought this was important, so I’m passing it on to you. It’s time we all call our congressmen and let them know we won’t stand for this nonsense. Can you imagine paying your taxes and then having them take another 1% everytime you use your own money.

ON JANUARY 1, 2013, THE US GOVERNMENT WILL BE REQUIRING EVERYONE TO HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT FOR SS CHECKS.

WONDER WHY?

Subject: HR 4646

Be sure to read entire explanation

Watch for this AFTER November elections; remember this BEFORE you VOTE, in case you think Obama is looking out for your best interest.

A 1% tax on all bank transactions is what HR 4646 calls for.

Do you receive a paycheck, or a retirement check from Social Security or a pension fund and have it direct deposit??

Well guess what … It looks as if Obama wants to tax it 1% !!!

This bill was put forth by Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA).

YES, that is 1% tax on all bank transactions – HR 4646, every time it goes in and every time money goes out.

Ask your congressperson to vote NO.

FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

1% tax on all bank transactions ~ HR 4646 – ANOTHER NEW OBAMA TAX SLIPPED IN WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP. Checked this on snopes, it’s true! Check it out yourself ~ HR 4646.

President Obama’s finance team is recommending a one percent (1%) transaction fee (TAX). Obama’s plan is to sneak it in after the November elections to keep it under the radar.

This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution – banks, credit unions, savings and loans, etc. Any deposit you make, or even a transfer within your own bank from one account to another, will have a 1% tax charged.

If your paycheck or your Social Security or whatever is direct deposit, it will get a 1% tax charged for the transaction.

If your paycheck is $1000, then you will pay Obama $10 just for the privilege of depositing your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry your paycheck or any check in to your bank for a deposit, 1% tax will be charged.

You receive a $5,000 stock dividend from your broker, Obama takes $50 just to allow you to deposit that check in the bank.

If you take $1,000 cash to deposit at your bank, 1% tax will be charged.

Mind you, this is from the man who promised that, if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax.

Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn about this guy’s under-the-table moves to increase the number of ways you are taxed.

Oh, and by the way, if you receive a refund from the IRS next year and you have it direct deposited or you walk in to deposit that check, you guessed it. You will pay a 1% charge of that money just for putting it in your bank.

Remember, any money, cash, check or whatever, no matter where it came from, you will pay a 1% fee if you put it in the bank.

Some will say, oh well, it’s just 1%. Are you kidding me? It’s a 1% tax increase across the board. Remember, once the tax is there, they can also raise it at will. And if anyone protests, they will just say, “Oh,that’s not really a tax, it’s a user fee”!

Think this is no big deal? Go back and look at the transactions you made from last year’s banking statements. Then add the total of all those transactions and deduct 1%. Still think it’s no big deal?
