This review is the same review cc?d to others such as consumer affairs, FTC and more, and in my opinion, is only a confirmation of what has already been written here. The established name of ""Firestone"" is used to gain your trust to open an account. Then it seems once you open the account, you are gouged with some other form of charge. If you don't pay that other charge right away, they ""threaten"" to ruin your credit. In my particular case, the three people I spoke with not only misrepresented themselves (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) but were some of the rudest people I have ever dealt with. I make over $4000.00/mo and opened an account for $15.00 to BUILD credit and was approved for over $900. Yes, those are correct figures. I tried to pay off this account, in full, in 30 days. Six (6) months later I'm still trying and now have a ding on my credit. It's ""FIRESTONE""! I would never have thought to check them out before opening an account for $15. Buyer Beware! There are ways to fight back. Please help get the word out to stop scammers. There are RipOff Reports type websites to tell people about these things. I didn?t find this site the first time around being from California, a little too late anyway. DIING THE CREDIT!!! To the ONE lady with the review whose husband didn't have any trouble: 1out of 16+ had horrible experiences and you should feel very fortunate! :) I wonder if Firestone is aware of what kind of people they have contracted with?
Pros: More fun than arguing with the neighbors
Cons: Everything that goes in the complete package of Total Scam
