Google Treasure Chest
United States
I have fallen for the scam from Google Treasure Chest. I ordered a cd for $1.97 and had no idea that I just enrolled in a monthly scam of charges to my credit card. I have disputed my charges with my credit card twice now. They keep puting the charge back on my bill because they say I did not supply them with the cancelation number of the product. The problem is I can not contact Google Treasure Chest in any way possible, to cancel or even return the stupid cd they sent me. I have no email address, every phone number I call is disconnected. I can not talk to anyone to get anything cancled. I need help with this. Can anyone provide me with contact information so I can resolve this...so far they are charging my capitalone card $72.21. I also would like to know who I need to contact to file a complaint with these scammers, they should be sitting in jail for what they are doing.

If any of you have EVER signed up for Google Money Profit this is where all of your unexpected charges are coming from! I called Network Agenda, BSM/Grant Search and found out that all this stemmed from me getting involved with Google!! make sure you cancel Google and cancel EVERYTHING that goes with it! Network Agenda's number is 1-800-418-9320. Don't assume that if you cancel Google that everything else is automatically cancelled along with it. Do the cancellations yourself and get a confirmationnumber!!!

Google Treasure Chest - Unauthorized charges
7628 Velvet Canyon
Las Vegas
United States

I was charged the amount of 72. 21 to my debit card by this company. I called them back and ask reason for this charges and requested a refund. Their representative was not very cooperative, he said that this was a charge for a program, that was on trial for 7 days. I told the rep, that i never received anything from them and he said that he would remailed to me, which they didn't of course. I was told by this person, that the amount of the charge was not refundable. When i asked them, if they were representing google, he said that he could ot provide me that information, or the name of the company that was charging me. He was not cooperative and insisted that this money was not refundable. Do anybody has any idea how we can get to this people that mislead and steal money from us. This is plain white collar robbery. If anybody has dealt with this company before, i would appreciate the information. You can email me at donjosem@yahoo.com thanks

Call the telephone number listed on your credit card statement, which is the number for "google treasure chest" and they will take it off your account. Chances are, there are lots more charges on your statement which are unauthorized. I just got off the phone with the credit card company!

I also was deceived by Google money tree. Was lured it through Vindale marketing research. I do not think this is refundable because I waited too long to cancel. It was 7 day trial, and rather large charge after that. I think this is a real shame.

We too were charged with this $72.21 by Google Money Tree. There phone # is 888-705-1275 and they stated that this charge is due to a free 7 day trial membership for a website and that after the 7 days you will be charged a non-refundable fee of $72.21. We have to dispute the transaction with our local bank.

Hope this helps,

I too was robbed! I was trapped because I thought it was only a $3.88 charge for a CD, and further thought that I was actually dealing with Google. Never expected charges of $72.21 Also, never expected that

Treasure Chest is not in any way associated with Google. They are only using their name. That is FRAUD! Today I canceled the so call "Terms and Agreement", but my bank, will not accept my claim of fraud by Google Treasure Chest. Any suggestion of how to proceed from here? I don, t want pay the last $ 72.21

I was told [by someone who is a lawyer] to call the company say that "I wasn't aware of the charges and if you don't remove the charges I'll get a lawyer & my bank involved..." And if they still won't do it, actually go thro with the lawyer and have your bank either cancel the charge and open a new account.
*shrugs* I guess I'll try that tomorrow and see how it goes.

I just looked at my credit card statement and noticed two charges from Google Treasure Chest ($3.88 & $72.21) - charges that I did not incur. When I called the 800 number requesting a refund, I was told that was not possible. When I asked to speak with a supervisor, I was told that was not possible either, that a supervisor would say the same thing. I explained that I was retired and not looking to start a business, that I never signed up for the service, and that I never received a CD ... nothing made a difference to the Customer Service Representative. Not suspecting fraud, I called my credit card company and disputed the charges. What I should have done first was check out the company on the internet and when I did, I was shocked by all the complaints. I called my credit card company back and told the CSR what I had learned. My "dispute" charge was changed to a "fraud" charge, my credit card was cancelled and a new one will be issued.
