THIS COMPANY HAS TAKEN MONEY OUT OF MY ACCOUNT UNDER THREE NAMES AND PHONE NUMBERS. THE INITIAL SELL WAS A COUPON OF $60 FOR GAS. THE FIRST TIME THEY REMOVED MONEY WAS ON 10/20, THOSE WERE CHARGES UNDER $10. I CALLED THE SAME DAY AND DEMANDED THEY REMOVE ME OFF THERE LIST AND REVERSE THE CHARGES. THEY CLAIMED MY NAME WAS BEING REMOVED. THEN ON 10/29 THEY REMOVED $29.95. THIS THREW MY ACCOUNT OVER THE LIMIT AND I WAS CHARGED $25 FOR THAT.

I DID CALL MY BANK AND ASK IF THEY CAN PUT A STOP PAYMENT ON THESE CHARGES. THEY STATED THAT BECAUSE THE CHARGE WAS A "POINT OF SERVICE CHARGE" IT COULD NOT BE STOPPED. I WOULD HAVE TO CLOSE OUT MY ACCOUNT AND REOPEN ANOTHER ONE. WHAT A HASSLE!!

MY HUSBAND FELL FOR THE CREDIT CARD DEAL WHERE YOU CAN ONLY SHOP FROM THEIR PICKED OVER WEB SITE. IT TOOK ME OVER A YEAR TO GET MY MONEY BACK ON THAT. ONE OF THE REASONS I DID GET MY MONEY BACK IS THE FACT THAT I REPORTED THEY TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. I FEEL THAT IS THE ONLY REASON I GOT THE MONEY BACK. SO MAYBE THAT IS WHAT ALL OF US SHOULD DO. I FEEL THAT THESE COMPANIES WHO DO THIS SHOULD BE CHARGED UNDER SOME BUSINESS LAW. POSSIBABLY REGESTERING THE PRESIDENTS, AND UNDERLINGS AND MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO RESISTER AGAIN. THAT'S JUST A THOUGHT!

WELL GOOD LUCK EVERYONE. I AM GEARING UP FOR ANOTHER LONG BATTLE. WHAT DOES HELP IS WHEN YOU TALK TO CUSTOMER SERVICE ASK WHO THE PRESIDENT IS. THEN CALL BACK MAKING IT SEEM LIKE YOU ARE A BUSINESS PERSON WANTING TO START UP A NEW BUSINESS. THEN HIS SECRETARY WILL PUT THE CALL THROUGH...ALL YOU CAN DO IS TRY, ...JILL

    Same thing happened to me, exept they didn't take me off the list and have continued to charge me. What I don't understand is how they got my credit card number, because I never gave it to them. Makes me mad, and I never got the gas card either.
