    Seems like it would have taken less effort to earn $250 and just pay the thing off…

    So you just write some random bullshit on top of an invoice and call it a day? They can’t really think it’s that simple, can they?

    On the other hand, I can see how some frustrated clerk with the power to write off balances below a certain amount would just give up arguing with stupid and be done with it, which might appear as if this crap actually works.

      Capital One is a big company. This is not the first or last person to try this strategy. There was no frustration for the clerk.

        I wonder if their belief in these magic words is more soft magic system or a hard magic system.

      By writing magic words in the paper, they think that when the credit company doesn’t return the letter that they’ve accepted the magic word paper as payment.

      Then they word saladed at support people until they bounced them to someone who wrote off a chunk of the money because tying up support staff for hours quickly exceeds the $200 this seems to be about.

      They believe that returning the bill with writing on it looking like an endorsed check somehow serves as a 'negotiable instrument ’ which draws upon the secret 2 million dollar trust the government established in your name when you’re born.

      Yes I am serious.

    reads like AI-generated nonsense
    why the hell would you discharge your own account if you’re the debtor?
    affidavit of fact from who? about what?

      I’ve never tried AI but I’d like to see what it comes up with for sovcits.

        Yeah, can someone who fucks with AI have it write what it thinks a sovcit would say about income tax and outstanding debts? I’d like to see that—but don’t want to make an account or get involved with any AI site myself.

    Always some crazy shit on here, but this is the first one I’ve seen of one of these losers fighting a $66 bill. LOL, shoot your wad for a house or car or something.

    When I was (much) younger, $28 in 1990 money wasn’t a huge burden. How bad off is this dumb shit?!
