Google Success Kit / fraud

1 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia Review updated:

Don't get ripped off by the Google Success Kit Scam. The site states that it will only cost $1. You put your credit card details in and you receive nothing. Over the next couple of months the Google Scam will rip you off at least $30 US at a time. They will also include other charges such as 'fraud protection'. I found out the hard way when my wife ordered the $1 success kit !
If you have fallen victim to this scam contact your credit card provider as a matter of urgency and CANCEL YOUR CARD ! Also report this matter to your bank and report it to the Police as the bank will require a report number to say you have reported the fraud !

    Paid $1.60AUD for the kit have not received it, have had charges of $27.91AUD unauthorized taken from my account, this matter needs to be addressed by you and I demand a full refund of all monies immediately. I wouldn' want to be connected to your product even if it made me a millionaire. I am in contact with my bank and will take all necessary steps I can to retreive the unauthorized charges to my account. SCAMMERS

    The best thing you can do is call your credit card company and see if they can dispute it for you.

    I agree with you on this matter. I to have had the same charges on my credit card. I did call the 1-866-341-0767 number and was told that they had sent me an e-mail saying they were out of stock. Never received.Go figure...I also contacted my credit card company an I am sending in a dispute on the charges. They also could not give me a date that the e-mail was sent. The only amount I authorized was the $1.00. Good luck.

    Hi Subscribed to Google Success Kit sometime ago, I accepted a charge of around $2.00 to my credit card,
    I was supposed to received a kit that never arrived. Given the small amount involved I did not chase the matter.
    I have just noticed that an amount of £22.50 has been collected from my Credit Card regularely.
    These payements were not autorized. Today is saturday and the office of my credit cards are closed. on monday I will contact them in order to find out the exact amount that has been collected and that has to be refunded on my account immediately. I will also contact the competent authority and specialst media programs that deal with fraud matters. I am very disappointed in Google. I am sure that they are aware of what is happening, also because I have read many other people's complaints; and if they are aware of it and are not advising their clients, then this beheviour makes it even worse.
    A very disappointed Google Subscriber.

    You go on their web-site or call 1-8888-5410915 and you can cancel via phone.
    I just did it successfully; they were quite polite, just asked for full name & address.
    Don't forget to ask for the cancellation of their fraud protection service as well

    GOOGLE SUCCESS KIT -- Total scam. The parent company, if there is one, is "Miscellaneous Food Products, " as I found out when I called my credit card to cancel the transactions for, ironically, fraud and ID theft.

    Here are the numbers to call if you've been dinged for "ID Security" and "Fraud Protection" on your credit card, subsequent to subscribing to the useless Google Success Kit -- which never arrived for me, btw.

    Google Success Kit: 1-888-541-0915

    This connects you to their cancellation service. You'll have to endure about 2 minutes of canned hype before you speak to a rep. Don't bother hitting zero as it just starts the tape over again. Be SURE to call this one, as I'm sure you'd get dinged a year from now for new subscription fees for a non-service.

    Fraud Protection: 1-866-387-2521

    ID Security: 1-866-351-8557

    Same deal. Suffer through the spiel, talk to a human being, forget a refund, but at least get future charges cancelled.

    This is a scam with a shelf life, obviously. They'll keep going until enough people catch on. But the lowlife behind it, of "Miscellaneous Food Products" will keep finding new ways to defraud folks.

    They will tell you that when you signed on everything was spelled out clearly. Just keep your cool, let them know it's a scam, and cut your losses.

    I ordered the success kit and was first charged $1.00. Since they have taken 9.95, 4.95 and 29.95 from my account. I am going to contact the bank tomorrow and ask them to not authorize any transactions from google. This is a total scam and its ridiculous that it is being found on websites. I want my money back!!!

    I got the same line about the 'out of stock' email...and then disputed with them about being charged for no product...there was alot of argument about how they have no verification of whether I have it- I told her as soon as i opened it they could've had that 'confirmation'- I had it cancelled-they are only too happy to do that but of course no refund yet...I advised my credit card company of this going on and cancelled the card number they had on file...

    On 3 Mar 2009 I signed up for a one of payment of $1 american dollar since then the company has stolen a total of $80.89,
    I have just made complaint to the Complaint Referral Form, Internet Crime Complaint Center, but when I rang to talk to my own bank I was pretty much told that they didn’t want to know and nothing they can do about it

    Here are the numbers I got though on if its going to help stop other people from being scammed

    Google Success Kit subscription 001 888 541 0915

    Fraud Protection 001 866 387 2521


    Identity Security 001 866 351 8557

    i was told that my subcriptions would be cancelled - all 3 of them gave me a cancelation number
    The phone lines all had recorded messages saying that as part of the Terms and conditions of the agreement we signed up for that all previously charged fees were non-refundable

    From new Zealand 01681 instead off 001

    Thank you to the person who put numbers up they really helped me

    Fingers crossed they do cancel now since they stealing money for jam

    There are a lot of websites in County Durham, England connected with this scam, you should contact local police to report this as a fraud.

    For more information see this website:
