Putting your faith in paperless billing with credit card companies such as Discover can expose your credit rating to extreme risk, and may not even have the green moral high ground.
LIKE MANY PEOPLE, I always assumed that paperless billing was a relatively risk free venture. But now that I've experienced first hand what can happen when things go wrong. I'm going back to paper, for two reasons. First, I can't risk more damage to my credit rating. Second, I've been reading up on the poorly understood environmental impacts of "paperless" accounting.
