Elite Excursions / Unathorized debit

On June 29, 2009, I was debited $12.99, which I noted in my check ledger but I did not research at the time due to deaths in the family, then I forgot about it. Then on July 28 I was debited another $12.99. Not only that, but now I also have a $39.00 overdraft fee. The total funds stolen from me at this point is $64.98.

When I received my printed bank statement showing the complete phone number for the 6/29/09 transaction (not complete on e-statement), I called immediately, and was surprised to learn that this was called "Elite Excursions, " which I never heard of. I searched my internet history and cookies to see if I had accidentally visited Elite Excursions and mistakenly signed up, but nothing called "Elite Excursions" comes up in my history whatsoever until today, when I started the search after the phone call. The gentleman I spoke with said that I signed up for a $10 gas card with Shoe Buy, and that's how I acquired this membership. However, I also have no record, cookie, history, or email regarding Shoe Buy offering or sending me a $10 gas card, and I certainly haven't received a gas card in the mail.

Elite Excursions is evidently part of Trilegiant (parent of such well-known ripoff companies as Travelers Advantage and Buyers Edge, both of which had previously ripped me off). When I tried to go to Elite Excursions' website, I was told I was being redirected to Travelers Advantage.

    Elite Excursions - Unapproved bank charge

    I just noticed that $20.99 has been debited from my Bank of America checking account for the past four months. What the hell?!? After I googled them, I see alot of search results for a scam linked to Chase. Is Bank of America doing this too now?

    Seriously pissed off...

    I am also concerned that these people are taking $20.99 out to my account and twice in one month...this is outrageous and we need to stop them. I have an account at Wachovia so it is not just Bank of America...

    I am going to make a complaint to the NYS Attorney General
    re Elite Excursions and a charge that has been added to my charge card for a period of 7 years. ...totaling approx. $700.
    My charge card company is Bank of America.
    I will pursue this. Anyone else in NYS being scammed by this outrageous dirty sneaky tactic. The charge on the credit card was not descriptive and so it was hard to know what it was for.

    Customers of websites like 1-800-Flowers.com, Travelocity, Shutterfly, and Orbitz are reporting mysterious monthly reoccurring charges to their credit cards.

    Thanks to marketing tactics (i.e., those pop-up windows) used during check out, without proper consent consumers are accidentally joining club memberships and having to pay for them monthly!

    Most people don't even realize they are being charged every month for a service they never ordered!

    I never signed up with this company and suddenly they charged my credit card without my permission. Don't expect to get something in return.
