Late Fees on the Rise

The report released Wednesday by the Government Accountability Office, Congress' investigative arm, describes the fees, interest rates and disclosure practices of 28 popular credit cards. It found that late fees averaged $34, up from $13 in 1995, while some credit card issuers impose penalty interest rates of more than 30 percent on consumers who pay late or exceed the credit limit.
