I applied for prescription cost help. Jim at SCBN said they could help. They are good at what they do...SCAM. They have taken $90.00 of my money and never sent me anything. When I accused him of being a scam and that I wanted my money back and that they are not to charge any further funds from my credit card he hung up on me. He lied to me and said I'd given him fraudulent credit card information (bare in mind that he didn't even have my name at that point) and that it has just gone thru. They got their money initially when we were on the phone two weeks earlier. THEY ARE A SCAM AND NEED TO BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS.

the same thing has happened to me...when I could not reach them by phone, I went on the internet and saw all the scam comments. I immediately cancelled, I was told to send the packet back, which I did...by certified mail!! So far no response. I called my credit card company to freeze payments. I have sent them all the paper work but have heard nothing as yet. If my credit company pays scbn, I will close the account and have told them that. Now I am just left hanging...merry christmas!!

Everything both people have posted has happened to me! We should all contact the Attorney General Office!! This is a big rip off.

Yes Yes Yes all of the above...My son recieved his 4 bottles. But now has medical insurance...But I can't cancel. They keep billing my credit card 30.00 each month. I have called them in Feb and canceled, and on my march bill they double dipped $30.00 twice. They said they want his medical card...That is his personel card and do not need that infomation, wanted me to write letter. To me all I need to do is tell them to cancel and that be that. Said the 30.00 a month for 6 months was for paper work and not the drugs ?????? MT from Michigan

july, 2011... this has just happened to me...Four months ago I enrolled in this program, paid the $50 enrollment fee, paid $35 for first 3-month prescription, it never came. I finally called to see why. I was told my Dr. had miswrote the prescription, so he spoke to them directly and sent another prescription written exactly as they instructed. Again, I waited weeks. Bear in mind, they never tried to contact me to explain if there was a mistake. I called back again and was told the prescription was received, although it was also written incorrectly! I saw the prescription myself at my Dr.s office and it was exactly as they requested. I was livid, after all this has been going on for more than 3 months. They would tell me it takes a few weeks for the medicine to be processed and sent out. At this point I asked for a refund and I was told that they have a "no refund" policy. I said that's fine then, our business is over and hung up the phone. Last Friday, they drafted another $35 from my bank account for my next shipment of "non existent" medication! My bank told me I may have to close that account, and open another one. I want to know what to do about this??????LC from North Carolina

I wish I had done some homework before getting hooked up with SCBN they are the top of the heap when it comes to scamming, I feel so stupid and violated. It just makes me more cynical about any businesses I have to do business with. I alerted my bank and have stopped payment, but they will only go back 60 days. SCBN has strung me along since Aug. 2012 Only to find out I never even needed them in the first place, why are they still in business???? This is criminal.

I had been charged for two months worth plus the fifty dollar fee. i called when i still havent received my meds and they told me my claim was denied because i had insurance. i established that before i even signed up and now they wont refund anything saying i signed a form and i didnt pay $35 for meds but for their service to help me get them and they earned that money. Really? EARNED my money to rip me off, no. I will file a dispute with my bank for unauthorized charges. SCBN IS A SCAM AND RIP-OFF!!!

I just spoke with them and they are going to call me friday to get my bank info. They did get my SSN# during application process. Now I worry that they have it. I am glad that I decided to research them before giving my bank info.

I submitted an email and phone number to get information about the group not knowing that they are basically looking for you to pay a "membership" fee for filling out standard forms the Pharmaceutical Company requires you to complete and then pay a monthly "service" fee to make sure you get your meds(for free), take care of your refills etc. Heather, extra loud on the phone, misrepresented these fees on the phone, calling them an "enrollment fee"..."to get you into their program" and the "cost of the medication would be discounted down to $45." "Congratulations you were approved and we'll be able to with draw your first months fees tomorrow" and "we'll send you out the forms for your doctor to sign off on so we can get you your medications." WHAT?! That is a game of shells people. This is done over the internet and phone, which brings the misrepresentations to a federal level of fraud. Something anyone can do on their own, they PRESSURE you into getting through them.
I have gotten 3 harassing phone calls from them, the last one relayed through a local number, not their 800 # in Texas, in attempting to get me on the phone.

So I just talked to these people and they want me to send them $110 up front and then $60 a month. At first I was told he was sure I could get this program for $50 per month, I was a little disappointed, so I held back, Glad I did now. So, why has nobody that actually got ripped off contacted the BBB and got them involved in this matter because they are still actively scamming today. I spoke to them less than an hour ago.

I have been contacted by SCBN and intend to play around a bit with them before ignoring their calls. Perhaps I can make them jump through the hoops for a while before they catch on that I'm messing with them. Give them bogus information and make them chase rabbit.
