No phone number on websitecustomer service is very poor once you find the number to get a hold of themThey deliberately make you wait a long period of time before sending you the card so they can keep your security deposit as long as possible so they can make the interest off your money and also so you pay their dollar fee to expedite the card shipmentWorst line of credit I have dealt with all aroundStay clear of this clown show

We remain committed to maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction and appreciate the opportunity to assist. We are sorry to hear Ms. [redacted] is having trouble reaching First Progress. First Progress does provide a phone number for customers to contact customer service. This number, (866) 706-5543, is located on the back of their credit card, as well as on each billing statement.

face="Times New Roman"> January 14, 2015 RevDex.com Attn: [redacted] 500 12th Street PO Box 2587 Columbus, GA 31902 RE: [redacted] Case No.: [redacted] Dear [redacted] ***: We are in receipt of your correspondence on behalf of [redacted] . We remain committed to maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction and appreciate the opportunity to assist. According to our records, on July 11, Ms. [redacted] had told our customer service supervisor [redacted] that our July response to her BBB complaint would suffice, and that no further letter was needed. On September 20, our agent explained to Ms. [redacted] that she could obtain a letter if she faxed or mailed a request for a letter to our Correspondence Department with the specifics of her request. We stand ready to send a further letter directly to Ms. [redacted] ’s mortgage company explaining our error in June 2014, if Ms. [redacted] specifies the name and address to whom such a letter should be sent. We have removed from the account records the delinquency resulting from our error in June 2014. However, the statement dated August 4, 2014, which shows the $190 credit we placed on the account in amends for our error, showed a minimum payment due by September 1 of $35. No payment was received until November 7, and no further payment has been received as of the date of this letter, so the account remains past due. Unfortunately, under the provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, we are responsible for accurate furnishing of information to the credit reporting agencies. Having investigated the delinquency, we are unable to fulfill her request, as the information furnished since August was accurate as of that date. If there are any additional questions, Ms. [redacted] may contact Customer Service Department at (866) 706-5543 during our hours of Monday to Friday, 9 am to 9 pm Eastern Time, or Saturday, 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time.
