'The Calling' Singer

Shoulda Left Home Without AMEX

Expensive lesson for The Calling's lead singer ... American Express will go wherever you will go -- especially when you STIFF 'em on tens of THOUSANDS of bucks.

TMZ obtained a copy of the lawsuit AMEX filed against Alex Band ... claiming he racked up $30,000 in debt over the last 2 years, and has refused to pay it back.

The financial giant wants its money STAT, and is suing for more than $30K ... to cover the debt and their legal fees. Band's rep hasn't gotten back to us yet.

Alex can't buy a break lately -- last year he claimed he was kidnapped, beaten and robbed by gunmen who made off with $1,200.

People have to know by now that Amex will cut off your charge card quick 1. Second, they're infamous for dragging you to court for their money, rightfully so. Most AMEX cards do not allow you to carry a balance; you have to pay the balance in full each month. When I read about the thousands people charge, I wonder what were they buying or did they pay mortgages with the card. 30g's is a lot, but I've heard of people being sued by Amex for much lower amounts.

Just My Opinion    

Well, I guess you'll have to borrow from Pet to pay Paul.
Or go kidnap the robber that robed you using a flame thrower gun, and threaten to set his lame azz (balls) on fire if he don't give you your money back. Dude McD's is hiring, there is ways to back off your bills, dude. You should read the fine print when getting a credit card, dude. That one (as far as i heard) you have to pay off the balance on it each month. unless that has changed now.

Well, I am sure once he reads all the articles on legal sites about the return of debtor's prisons, he might consider paying thst masive debt off.
