CIC Credit Report / Unauthorized charge

1 NY, United States Review updated:

I was lead to believe you can actually get a free credit report unbeknownst to me that isn't true, I should of realized after they ask for a credit card number that its not going to be charged its just they need it, ok I do it and now I find a $14.95 charge that says CIC*CREDIT so I call my bank to find out who and what that charge went to and they inform me its a credit company and they supply with the number to call, well I called because I wanted to see what it was for be I stop payment, here's the where it gets good CIC keeps giving me the run around they can't find any open accounts under my name or SS# and they keep informing me their services are free and there is no charge for their services. So I call them again this week thinking maybe the credit card number would help even though I'm a bit weary about giving that out again... Well low and be hold they find an account now, But now only after the charges cleared from my account and they now have my $14.95, Now for the punch line THEY TOLD ME THEY DO NOT REFUND MONEY... Hmmm now isn't that a bit odd, everyone else can refund money for Unsatisfactory Service But THEY DON'T, So people be cautious when anything says FREE and then ask for a credit card...

    I purchased nokia 7610 in november 2005. During july2006, it started giving problems, its selection key was not working. It is in warranty period till november 2006. I had given it to nokia care, dist center, janak puri on august 04 2006. My jobsheet number is 1400085853. On my jobsheet they have printed the expected return date 07.aug 2006. But Verbally they told me to collect it after 10 days i.e. on 14 aug. as it needs to be sent to head office, nokia. On 14 aug i contacted them , they said my handset will be replaced. and it will take another week. From that day they are extending the delievery date on weekly basis. Today is 20 september, i m fed up contacting them again n again.

    This is definitely an online scam. They offer you a free credit report and yet charge your card $12+ monthly. I called to try to get a refund and some person I could not understand stated that it was free for 30dys but there after there is a fee. DO NOT GET RAPED BY THIS COMPANY. I plan on reporting them to the BBB and writing a letter to THEIR grievance address. This company is a CROCK!

    Back In Feb. I entered our information for the 3 free credit reports. Since 2/21 /07 I have had a monthly charge on our credit card for $12.95. I have called every month when the bill comes to tell them to remove the charge. Today, another charge from them was on the credit card that we canceled. I called them again today and told them to stop the charging and credit me with at least this last charge. I don't know what to do. I don't have a street, city address for them to send a letter from our son who is an attorney. I have also called the BBB. I don't know what else to do. What a rip off- that is why I never order anything on the internet!!!

    Any ideas as to how I can stop this???

    I contacted this company last month, asking them to cancel this account, but I noticed that I've been charged $12.95 again, and I'm really upset about this. Does anyone have any contact information for this company b/c I want to make sure I don't get anymore of these charges.

    I was charge without notification for a service i do not use. I applied for a FREE credit report and only receive it from one of the credit trackers. I didn't need anything further!

    Requested my free credit report at www.annualcreditreport.com. This put me through to Experian's website, www.freecreditreport.com. However, I recently received a charge of $14.95 by CIC CREDIT REPORT, which, with some simple searching online, I discovered was Experian. This charge was NOT authorized by me, and as soon as the charge officially posts to my acct (it is currently PENDING) I will be disputing it and filing a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General's Office, The Better Business Bureau, and which ever federal agency oversees these kinds of frauds (i'm assuming either the FTC or SEC).

    CIC Credit Report - Charged me
    United States

    I was chrged $14.95 for something that I didn't even authorize to do. I want my money back. $14.95 may not seem alot to some people but when you are a family just moving with a very small child and limited funds; it's alot. I needed to get some pull-ups for my son and I can't now because my account has been overdrawn.

    I understand where you're coming from! Diapers and pullups are so expensive today. Can u remember whether or not u signed up for something on the internet or bought something? That's how a lot of consumers are being jipped. They sign up or buy something they want and the company they buy from have made deals with other companies to get them business as well; alot of consumers are not aware of this. If this is a checking or savings account, contact your bank immediately and let them know. I don't know if they can refund your money, but they can definitely stop them from taking your money again. This company will definitely be getting this money every month if u don't stop them. God bless and good luck!

    This company does not keep records of cancellation after the supposedly "free credit report" and then bills your credit card each month (which they stated was for security to make sure you are you) and then they continue to charge after two telephone calls to cancel at 800-388-8729. Leaving one to have to dispute thru their credit card company to recover the money they stole.

    I was offered a free credit report and I found I was charged 12.95 without my authorization. I am trying to cancel so that I don't get charged next month and there is no where to get in touch with them. No phone number, no email address etc.

    Just writing to ask for what reason my bank account has been charged over £22 a month since May of this year. I have no idea who you are or why this money has been taken out of my account. It is possible that my card has been cloned or similar. I have been in contact with my band and they are informing their fraud department of this matter.
