This is getting really off-topic for this list, so I won't post more on it; 
however, the horror story I related in another post about thousands of 
dollars of bogus charges on my credit card taking months to resolve was a 
story about a credit card issued by Chase. I've never seen statistics on how 
many such stories are easily resolved and how many, like mine, turn into 
nightmares; however, SOME of them DO turn into nightmares. Credit card 
companies will SOMETIMES "go to bat" for you, but other times they won't. 
Your experience with Chase was good, but I'm never going to do business with 
them again. Ever. *SHUDDER*

As a result of my experience I've been trying to minimize my use of credit 
cards, debit cards, and other electronic transfers to pay for things, but in 
today's world that's difficult.
