129. Notwithstanding section 98, the merchant may amend the open credit contract to increase the amount chargeable as membership or renewal fees or as replacement fees for a lost or stolen credit card or to increase the credit rate.
The merchant must send to the consumer, according to the time limits prescribed by regulation, a notice setting out exclusively the amended clauses, as they formerly read and as they read now, and the date of the coming into force of the increase.
The unilateral amendment not conformable to this section of an open credit contract cannot be invoked against the consumer.
