Knocking on Heaven’s door…

This is so funny! It takes all kinds to make the world go round but be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die. Here’s the story I received via email; the name of the bank has been respectfully removed.

Credit card balance/thomastoons'

My aunt died this past January. The bank billed her for February and March for their monthly service charge on her credit card, and then added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00 and now, it was somewhere around $60.00. I placed the following phone call to the bank.

Me: I am calling to tell you that she died in January.
Bank: The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.
Me: Maybe you should turn it over to collections.
Bank: Since it is 2 months past due, it already has been.
Me: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?
Bank: Either report her account to the frauds division, or report her to the credit bureau or maybe both!
Me: Do you think God will be mad at her?
Bank: Excuse me?
Me: Did you just get what I was telling you – the part about her being dead?
Bank: Sir, you’ll have to speak to my supervisor!
(Supervisor gets on the phone)
Me: I’m calling to tell you she died in January.
Bank: The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.
Me: You mean you want to collect from her estate?
Bank: …..(stammer)…. Are you her lawyer?
Me: No, I’m her great-grand nephew.
Bank: Could you fax us a certificate of death?
Me: Sure.
(After they have got the fax)
Bank: Our system just isn’t setup for death.
Me: Oh!
Bank: I don’t know what more I can do to help.
Me: Well…if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her, I suppose. I don’t really think she will care.
Bank: Well, the late fees and charges do still apply.
Me: Would you like her new billing address?
Bank: That might help.
Me: Nilai Memorial Park Cemetery (North South Highway and plot number given)
Bank: Sir, that’s a cemetery!”
Me: Precisely! Smart fella! Now, perhaps you want to tell me what you do with dead people on your planet?

Old MILO tin/laokokok4's

…And to think that you trust these people with your life savings!!! Perhaps it may be safer to keep it in that old MILO tin and hide in under your bed!…..Yes, Cibol? LOL!!!
