Complaint Details:

Date of Complaint: June 30, 2016


State: AE

Product: Credit card

Issue: Unsolicited issuance of credit card

Full Complaint:
I have had a USAA Master card since 1988. This account has always been in good standing. Recently USAA switched to Visa without my permission or consent. I called USAA to tell them I do not want the Visa and to cancel it. They stalled, put me on hold, switched me to a supervisor who told me if I cancel the card it will hurt my credit score, in essence a coercion tactic. This can not be legal or ethical.

Company response:

Response Type: Closed with explanation

Public Response:
Company believes it acted appropriately as authorized by contract or law
