I made a purchase at Arnolds Furniture in San Diego, California (The Miramar Rd. Store). I bought a sofa at 0% interest for one year.
When the time was up, I never received a bill/statement as to the amount I owed. So, I called up the store and paid the amount in
full. Household Retail Services gave me a negative point on my credit report which will not be clear until 2005.
This is destroying my credit.
