Food and Flix / Unauthorized charges
I had two $1.00 charges on my Visa from Food and Flix. I also had a $1.00 and a $29.95 charge from Deal Max. I did not authorize any of these charges.
I was able to contact Deal Max at [protected] and speak with a representative directly. "Sarah" was able to cancel my apparent membership and credit me back the charges. According to her, I signed up for their program when I purchased a Walmart gift card online. I've never shopped at Walmart so this makes no sense to me.
I tried to call Food and Flix at [protected] but they make it impossible to talk to a real person. I e-mailed them at firstname.lastname@example.org. They replied and promised to cancel my membership and credit be back my two bucks. They said I signed up for their program by clicking on an ad banner. What?!
It appears that Food and Flix and Deal Max along with several other shady members-savings clubs are owned by AP9 Adaptive Marketing. AP9 is owned by Vertrue Inc. which is based in Norwalk, CT. Richard Fernandes is the current CEO. You can contact him at 20 Glover Ave, Norwalk, CT 06850
I don't know how they can get your credit info so check your statements often. Sure, what they took wasn't alot of money to me, but its MY MONEY that I work hard for. What kills me is that they're taking a dollar here and dollar there from thousands or maybe millions of people.
