“As lawmakers worked out credit card reform legislation earlier this year, card issuers argued that tough restrictions would make credit costlier for consumers. Now that tough reform has been signed into law by President Barack Obama, some lenders are making good on those threats.

Kezia Richards of Pennsylvania told the Huffington Post that last week she received a notice from Chase that her minimum monthly payments would be increasing from 2 to 5 percent of her total balance on her two Chase credit cards.

“It came in the mail like junk mail,” she said, noting that in the past she usually ignored mail from Chase but had been opening the letters more recently.

“This one made me physically sick when I read it,” she said.”
