Tidbit

😀

Interesting Tidbit!

9am - A credit report tale
When I contacted Lone Wolf RV Park asking to stay, I was informed that a credit report was required and a $20 charge needed to be paid for that report. I agreed, and paid the $20.

When I arrived at Lone Wolf, I was told that my credit report was approved. I asked to see my report, and was told that a copy would be given to me.

I knew that the credit report would never be given to me. Because I had locked access to my credit data at all three credit bureaus. some time ago!

Oh, my! What a wicked web we weave, when first we practice to deceive 😇.

Did George uncover a credit report scam?





3pm - Closing Miss Twayler's screen door
Pesky insects keep coming in. Without permission, of course. So, today was declared, "Install A Closer Day."

A closer that seemed right, was one of those tubular jobs. But no! That one didn't operate right. Did not pass inspection.

My Dad always said, "Do it the simplest way!"

We tried a plain old ordinary door spring. That did the trick.


Plain old door spring!


10pm - AT&T sending warnings
Do we on the Tioga RV team worry about AT&T's warnings about data usage? Not one bit! AT&T warnings are something like a buyer and seller negotiation. The tougher negotiator gets the best deal.

Last month we had BIG TIME data usage because our data was entirely wireless. The most expensive data. Our total bill for the month came to around $205. We called up and acted completely incensed about AT&T, the bill amount, and everything else. We were sooooo angry!! [Not really. We were acting!]

In about 5-minutes, our monthly bill was reduced $92. 😀

    1. Hi Steve,

      You liked that Blog post?

      I wonder how long they have been doing that,
      "$20 for a credit report bit?"

  2. Oh very sneaky but also very smart thinking. Are you going to catch them up on it?

    1. We're it me, every day or so, I would ask about the status of getting the report. Just for the devil of it. 😉

    2. Hi Ruth,

      I really did not figure that they were scamming the credit report request. I thought that they would have come back with, "No credit report, no trailer site!"

      But, they didn't. That was when I came on to their scam.

      I do not feel it is in my best interest, to rub their nose in it. So, when the rent is due, I'll deduct the $20. Write on the rent check:
      Less "unused" $20 credit report fee.

  3. Good for you! And be sure to deduct the $20. When they question you, tell them you'll give them the $20 when you get a copy of your report. If they give you any problems, call or write the three credit reporting agencies and tell them what happened. Ask them how this RV park was able to pull your credit when you had it locked. And if they DO give you a copy, even more reason to contact the agencies.

    If the park did, indeed, charge you for a report they never got - well, I'd start looking around for another park. They are dishonest and cheating their residents, and I wouldn't want to live there. What's next? Cheating you on your electric? Not taking care of things that should be done? It's a bad deal. :(

    1. Hi Barbara,

      I'm not anticipating anything adverse from Lone Wolf. When I pay next month's rent, less the $20, I doubt very much if there will be a complaint from the office.

      If there is, I'll report what goes down here on my Blog.

      Sort of exciting, yes?

  4. Always follow the money. Second scam you caught in the past few weeks. First one was your TV sale. Good work Tioga George!

    1. Hi Rita,

      I cannot remember the "missing mattress?"

      When/how did that happen?

    2. Before you withhold that $20. Get your Free credit report and it may show where they did check your credit.

      I have mine also locked and a Alert renewed every 90 days. But checks still happen at times.

    3. Hi Larry,

      Good advice. However, I have asked for the credit report twice. And have not received it.

      When I next pay rent, the $20 paid for my credit report will be deducted from that rent amount. This is not a big thing. It is a funny thing.

      I expect that there will be no response from Lone Wolf management, because of the $20 deduction from rent. But, if there is a response, it will be the presentation to me, of my credit report.

      This is a wait and see pudding event.

      You just have to wait and see what happens 😀.
