While in Iraq in 2003, I used my Discover Card at the miltiary store known to us in the military as AAFES. I didn't think much about the transaction at time except I had to use the old-fashion swipe card thingy.
Well, apparently for some reason AAFES didn't timely process my credit transaction. I know nothing about this. I noitce charges on my bill I didn't do, but I don't really pay much attention on what's not on my credit card statement unless I charged a huge amount.
Well, I get a form letter two days ago telling me AAFES was having problems with credit card companies not only accepting the charge but many other service members charges as well.
Now AAFES gave me an account number and told me I need to pay in 30 days. Of course I''m going to pay it, but something is telling me, after 3 years, I'm not obligated to pay it.
The problem is what about the service member who charged routinely and was over there for a year or so and now 3 years afterwards, AAFES wants their money.
I find it amusing for myself, but I can afford $49.
