Second letter referring to a Pre-Approved For a Platinum Card.

Letter specifies as follows:
It's nice to inform you that you have been identified and Pre-Approved for a Platinum Card Membership from Union Workers Credit Services with a Guaranteed $10, 000.00 credit limit valid exclusively toward all credit purchases from credit provider!

You don't have to worry if you have been denied access to a Visa or MasterCard The UWCS Platinum Card Membership offers many benefits including a LOW, LOW interest rate of 5% APR all because you are Pre-Approved.

By viewing this the company is looking forward that we are stupid enough to send a check for $37.00 and when you receive their package there is no credit card as you were hoping. Only a way to purchase their products from some online store. When you go to their website and enter your approval number it makes it look like their is a web site error and everything else looks to the up and up. They are hoping you send your check so that you can be disappointed for this multi non-functional credit card.

Glad I did some research! Here is what I did...I blacked out my name on the return form and wrote "you can pay for the postage you fraudulent bastards" and sent USPS. With the economy the way it is, be on your toes for these types of offers. This company is playing on the desperation of consumers and members of unions as well as others (I am not a member of a union) and they sent this offer to me as well. I have noticed as of late that a lot of companies are sending these types of offers because they believe if you fall into this scam you feel you will need to get something for your $37.00 so you will end up ordering an item or two of their "junk". Be aware and do your research.

I Paul L. Woods received a letter stating that I was pre-approved for a $10, 000 credit limit. All I had to do was send in a $37 money order to 1327 Empire Central Suite 130 Dallas TX 75247. They never sent the card. Please help me.

received preapproved letter four times in mail. Heard about these scams before on tv. They take the money, send nothing, rack up big bucks, close and open somewhere else under another name to avoid legal detection. I am not a union worker, i am on disability and have very little income. heard about. Obviously I'm not a candidate for legitimate credit.

Credit service for 10, 000 5%apr if sent 37$ to address to receive catalog and credit card. The card was bogus a paper card stamped platimum and no catalog ( they implied you could use as a standard credit card not a catalog card. Unfortunately i should have web browsed this site so I am at lost what to do . After reading that BBB can be bought off with 45$ I'm beginning to think the crooks of this world. Been in the rats race for years the rats won...Judi

Scam, Union Workers Credit Services claim I have qualify for a $10K credit limit but they way a $37 annual membership fee upfront!

I too got one of those letters, in December. Really sounded good, but as they say, 'if it sounds so good to be true, then it isn't something to deal with'. And, especially when a credit card company asks for money up front...no credit card company asks for money like that - only when you get the card and are a member and get charged a 'yearly' amount.

Soooooooooo glad I didn't respond, as it sounded so darn tempting!

Got one yesterday, 1-21-11 also...With all the different scams nowadays, a smart person can ask Google about this Union Workers Credit Services. Even if it wasn't a scam I personally am not interested in obtaining a huge loan like that anyway. What I do like is the time that people have invested and shared online so that people are made aware, not fall into the trap of paying $37. To all of you who took the time to post this scam, I am very thankful. Thank you very much.

Fell 4 the scam and sent the union credit workers union the 37.00- promises of a pre-approved visa;should've known it was too good to be true w/o having given them a SS#, etc.. I can't get the $ back but hopefully enough complaints on this company will keep others from losing not only their money but their common sense too. In viewing the complaints on this scam, I see most are from over a year ago. I just received their letter a month ago and sent them the check which has long since been cashed. Can't the Department of Justice nail them for fraud and shut them down?

Got mine yesterday 02/03/2011. ...I was delighted as I currently do not have a credit rating and really need one. I thought this was the answer.
Thanks heavens for Google and all the people who have posted about this scam. Surely something can be done about these quite obvious scam merchants???
