I thought there was a grace period of 7 days to pay your bill. That is what I was told by a representive 3 times. Why am I getting hit with $9 late fees? I was told by a representive that I have 7 day before a late fee occur. If my bill due on the 21st of every month and I pay three days later on my pay day. Why am I beeing charged a $9 late fee.
