Chase Card Services Apologizes For Inappropriate, Erroneous Letter

August 25, 2005

We were recently made aware of an inappropriately addressed credit card solicitation letter that contained an offensive phrase in place of a name. While you may hear about this letter through media reports, we want our employees to understand the full details.

The inappropriate information on that letter was obtained from a list purchased by Chase Card Services from a vendor. Although no Chase Card Services employee was involved in creating this information, we are embarrassed by this incident and regret that our automatic screening procedures did not catch this erroneous information.

We have sent a letter of apology to the individual, and are taking steps to improve our screening procedures and policies regarding information provided to us for our business use. We are firmly committed to preventing something like this from occurring again.

As a company that is dedicated to providing the highest degrees of respect to our cardmembers, prospective customers and employees, we are appalled by this incident. We offer our sincere apologies to anyone offended by this matter.

My guess is some angry employ changed Habbas’s name in the system to “Palestinian Bomber” as a joke or in order to get his company in trouble.  I thought it was funny, anyways.

This is not all that uncommon…

like this woman who complained a lot to her cable company, and then started receiving bills addressed to “Bitch.”

Insensitive maybe, but you know the look on their faces when they got that stuff had to be funny!

When I was working for a video store, and we could input notes regarding the account, one girl would leave things like, “chews gum like a cow”  “threatened me” “really hot”.

I was always worried that corporate was gonna find the info in a random query…

We sometimes put notes in the system like that here at work.
