I'm constantly shocked to see people say they didn't have $10 (or pounds) to their name during any given time.
I get that you're a student, but what kind of life are you leading where you literally can't afford to pay off a $10 debt. When I was a student and working on the side I'd be nervous when I dropped below $1000 on my account.
At that time I just didn't have the fees, I finished off paying my Uni loans for that year, and was waiting for my next loan to come through (which was 1 1/2 weeks after the bill was due) thats why I didn't have any money to my name.
Sorry if everybody thinks this was a spam post, it wasn't and the only reason I posted it was I was a little freaked out by it and your replies could (and have to some extent) made me feel a little bit better about this whole affair. I don't often use credit cards, I just needed to use it because I had no money what so ever as I previously stated when paying off my Uni Loan, I needed £10 get something sorted and for that I used a credit card, I knew I wasn't going to pay it back on the day it was due but figured it would only be a week late and its just a small amount, there wouldn't be a problem. I did not expect such a fierce resposne from them saying that if I don't pay it back they will:
- Close my account
- Pass the account to a debt collection agency
- Bring legal proceedings against me.
