Full Complaint:
I had been trying to reach out to USAA by email regarding the accounts.
I am still holding USAA responsible for the participation of Consumer credit card and bank fraud along with partner XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) I had been researching online regarding Consumer Credit Applications. Banks can sue consumers for putting false information on consumer credit application in order to get a high credit limit. That’s fraud. I am sure USAA already knows that. The California Statue Of Limitation of 4 years to sue for the debt is over for USAA. But the problem is USAA had never filed any lawsuits against me because I done nothing wrong. It was not my fault that I was deceived by USAA and XXXX XXXX XXXX. USAA knew the Consumer annual house hold income of {0000.00} was false income that was a business projected income as stated income. USAA had approved ( Banking Products ) 2 Military Affiliate credit cards M/C {000.00} and another {000.00} base on the amount of {0000.00}.
XXXX XXXX XXXX told me to create a account with USAA and answer all questions then submit. I got a Welcome email from USAA. I did not understand the Welcome email back then. I was not eligible for a USAA membership and any banking products and I was not affiliate to the Military.

My income was {000.00} annually from Social Security that I was receiving S.S.I disability every month. XXXX XXXX XXXX just added a 5 to the {000.00} to turn into {0000.00}.

USAA involvement of the participation of consumer credit card and bank fraud with XXXX XXXX XXXX is a crime to defraud a bank and consumers. USAA and XXXX XXXX XXXX still committing fraud. USAA is punishing me for it by attacking me through my credit files?

USAA need to take responsibility for their actions.
