Adaptive Affinity / credit card scam

I booked a hotel with Lastminute.com & was offered a £10 cashback. So I clicked to agree. Without my knowledge this entitled High Street Max to take off £14.95 off of my credit card...apparently a confirmation was sent. I never received this & have no record of it. I wasa then sent an email advising me it would increase to £17.95 apparently. I did not receive this either.

When I phoned to complain the company were unsympathetic & not helpful at all. They cancelled my membership immediately, even though I had apparently agreed a contract. There is no proof of this contract. Emails have been sent to me, to apparently prove they were sent out. There are no dates on these emails & just looked copied.

I have been signed up since May & £140.60 has been taken from this awful company since May 2009. There is apparently no room for refund but I know there definitely should be & I expect one.

    I have just relaised that I appear to have fallen foul of the approach that this company is adopting after having booked flights a year ago via Last Minute.com.

    I feel like I have been conned.

    Rewards First obtained my credit card details from FlyBe.com without my permission or knowledge. I am in the process of speaking with the police in respect of "Adaptive Affinity" who have stolen £165.00 from my credit card. When I called Rewards First to ask them how they obtained my credit card number they said they couldn't speak to me as I was not the person registered under the membership no. This membership however is being paid for by ME!! They have a name and address for this membership but this is not my name, nor my address!! Blatant fraud! I have never dealt with this company and they are unable to provide me with any correspondence that gives them the authorisation to take this money from my credit card. Adaptive Affinity Ltd claim that they send out welcome emails which is a blatant lie. How can they send me an email for this membership when they don't even have my name or address, or indeed my email address!!! Disgusting company whose board of directors should be held accountable for such fraudulent and corrupt business practices. They have actually stolen from me and the last time I looked - stealing is a criminal offence! Let's hope these blaggards end up behind bars where they belong.
