Description

KRON-TV reports "on numerous complaints against Providian Financial, one of the nations' biggest credit card companies, that had one of the fastest growing stocks on the S&P. Our investigation uncovered complaints of unexplained charges for late fees, and for products that consumers say they never ordered. The Better Business Bureau reported nearly 800 complaints against Providian, in the San Francisco Bay Area alone."
