CIC Triple Advantage.com / Unauthorized charge!

1 United States Review updated:

I accepted this trial for looking over a service for travel and savings for the family, I think it also had to do with free credit report as a bonus feature.
Anyhow~ I called to cancel and threw out the information about it. Well on my last months statement I was charged a $12.95 fee which is a monthly charge. I called the bank and also looked further into finding a phone number, but no as of yet is one available. I have most of the numbers but the last 4 are missing as was confirmed with my bank as well.

Beware!

    I knew nothing about this until I received my monthly statement. Found out that they do this when you request a free credit report. It is nothing but a total scam and they will be reported to the Attorney General in Florida and California.

    I signed up for what I was lead to believe was a one time free credit report with CIC Triple Advantage in December 2005. I just realized that they have been charging my account $12.95 every month since December 2005 without my knowledge. I never requested a monthly credit report. I canceled and was reimbursed this month only, June 2007. I never authorized these monthly charges. I was never even notified that I was receiving any type of monthly credit report. This has been going on for over a year without my knowledge.

    CIC Tripple Advantage - Unauthorized Charges
    United States

    I went online to get my husband and I credit report at freecreditreport.com and they charged me $24.95 for each. This was less than 6 months ago. Now they just charged my account again in two installments of $12.95 each. What is going on here? They said it is a yearly fee for there service and to cancel at anytime. What service? I haven't received any of there services! It is not free they are a scam!! Watch out for them.

    There are numerous complaints regarding this company. I did get through to the customer service department. After explaining that I didn't sign up for any membership, the operator explained it was spelled out in the offer. She canceled it for me, but I won't be getting the money back. This is a scam!!

    I went on-line for a free credit report. Now I am getting $12 charges on my credit card each month. I never ordered anything that required a monthly charge of $12. My credit card company has removed the charges but a new $12 charge has appeared on my current statement. This is fraud!!! This company is unethical. These charges must stop.

    For at least 3 months now, CIC Triple Advantage has been charging me $12.95 for a service I did not request, do not want, and have not received.

    I did the free credit report and I have now been charged months later. I tried to get a number to cancel the charges and could not find one. I will call visa and dispute these charges.

    CIC Triple Advantage has charged 12.95 from my checking account without authorization and there are no numbers to contact them and inquire why? If you are experiencing the same problem contact your bank and start a internal investigation.

    I paid $24.95 for my 'free' credit report and have now been billed $12.95 from my checking account. This monthly charge was not authorized by me and I need to find out how to stop it.

    Beware people!

    I'm a member of CIC triple advantage and a happy customer it sounds like you got the free credit report as part of the trial membership that it says you have to cancel before 30 days to avoid chrges and maybe you accidently ordered the 3 bureau reports too thinking they were free bc it asks if you want to upgrade to all 3 but it says it will charge that $24.95 once you get to the screen to order. I guess it's one of those lessons we have to learn if someone asks for your credit card more than likely you will be charged at some point and always read the terms and conditions. I'm sorry you feel ripped off but I do know if in the future you want the reaally free credit report the place to go is annualcreditreport.com I know you get a free report from there once every 12 months.

    Me too! I just noticed a charge of $12.95 on my bank statement. I did a search on-line to figure out what CIC Triple Advantage was then looked back at previous statements to find that I have been charged every month for the past 7 months! I did the free report when I bought my car and unwillingly signed up for this scam! Annoying and they wont refund any of it! At no point was it ever a free credit report. This sort of thing shouldn't be legal!
