Standard bank card services passes the buck

I have a credit card from Standard bank and I wanted to know where they got the money to loan me on that credit card. Since I am paying it back with HUGE amounts of interest, I think I have the right to know. Furthermore, you cannot loan something you don’t have. If I don’t have a car, I cannot lend you a car. So if Standard bank loaned me money, they must have had the money to loan me in the first place, right? That’s what I thought but when I asked Standard bank card services this question, they passed the buck.

In classic corporate style, they passed the buck. Standard bank is like every other corporation on the planet, no-one is responsible, they simply pass you on to someone else in the organization when you stump them.

I don’t understand why my simple questions were not answered and I am not going to leave it here. I am going to scratch further and will post the results, but I wanted to post something now about how corporations, and in particular, Standard bank, pass the buck when you confront them. This is what makes it almost impossible for normal people, like me, to crack the shield of mis-information their PR dept pumps out.

Here is the email chain between myself and Standard bank card services so EVERYONE can see how Standard bank card services passes the buck.

An awesome tech idea: the sunrise thermal airship

I love new technology and am always scouring the net for new ideas. I recently came across this one which I think is just absolutely awesome. They are calling it the “Sunrise thermal airship” & (unfortunately) it is still only an idea. I can’t wait for this one to go commercial, I know I would be likely to do anything to get my hands on one.
