Notice the statement date. It says 1/24/0000, Now keep in mind that from the day that the statement date is printed, it then has to be stuffed into an envelope and mailed, and then received by you a few days later. Anywhere from 3-7 days could elapse from the statement date! That means you could literally receive your bill on 1/31/0000, and it would be due ONE WEEK LATER, on 02/07/0000!
If you are then even one day late with your payment on a potential 7 day turnaround, you can then be hit with a FORTY DOLLAR LATE FEE. If you fight the fee, the odds are the fee WILL NOT be overturned, and then you will be hit for a new 40 dollar late fee each and every month if you decide to not pay the penalty.
And, CHEVRON / TEXACO Fleetcor Business CREDIT CARD WILL HAVE OPERATORS FROM THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS CALLING YOU AT LEAST ONCE A DAY HARRASSING YOU TO PAY THESE TRUMPED UP CHARGES!
On top of that, Chevron Texaco can (and did to me), arbitrarily change the billing due date. It was almost like they did it on purpose to trick me. My bill came very near the date it usually comes, only now the due date had been moved up by around 12-14 days!
When I called to have the date moved back to what it originally was, the representative took my info down, and then apparently nothing happened. Chevron never sent a response letter. Any other credit card I had used in the past, if I asked for the due date to be moved, it was either moved, or I was immediately told it could not be moved.
I called three times to get the date moved back, not once was I told it would not be done. The first time in 2009 I think someone from the customer service center I was literally begging Chevron Fleet Texaco to not complicate my life any further by changing due dates on me, and I think the call was cut off because it had been well over a ten minute call.
Over the next couple of months I called two more times, the second time was from my dying father's hospital room. I was with my father for 15 consecutive days in the hospital, I stayed overnight each and every night except for the night when I went home and printed up a walls worth of pictures to put up in his hospital room.
During those fifteen days, I took my mother to visit my father daily, and I assisted in the order in which my father would be treated as different doctors planned their treatment schedule which did not include the order of the other doctors that were also planning procedures (we didn't know yet that he only had 2-4 weeks to live).
On top of that, I had to take care of many monthly bills, of all the bills, the chevron bill stood out like a sore thumb for me because of the change in the due date.
Chevron Texaco business credit card serviced by Fleetcor and IS THE ONLY BUSINESS CREDIT CARD I have ever had that took my request to change the date BACK TO WHAT IT WAS and just did nothing without telling me they were not going to change it back! Fleetcor did not even send a letter saying they would not change back the due date to what it originally was.
The purposeful inconveniencing of a customer on so many levels just to increase the likelihood of causing the customer to be late on a payment is something any responsible corporation would stay away from.
The companies up above all use Fleetcor Business Credit Card services for their business credit card accounts. If the "standard of care" that Fleetcor uses with Chevron Texaco business customers is an indicator of how they treat the customers from these other companies, I would suggest not doing business with any of them.
If you run a franchise under any of the companies above, I feel badly for you as you might be being victimized by the Fleetcor business model. I may like you, I may like your store, but once I've been screwed over by Fleetcor, I won't do business with any company that hires Fleetcor to run their business credit card division.
