Google Treasure Chest / scam, fraud

1 OK, United States Review updated:

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 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.

    I was charged $72.21 on my debit card that I did not authorize. I was supposed to get charged $1.98 for information for an at home business venture and recieved two phone calls. After I got more information about the business I told them that I was not interested and that was that. So I thought. I went to use my card and it was declined. I demand that the money that was stolen from me be returned immediatley. If I do not recieve the money in a timely fashion I will be forced to proceed with legal action. Stay away from Google Treasure Chest. It is a horrible SCAM and they have taken advantage of alot of people. I can be reached via email

    every one send a letter to the real google outlining the fraud
    and then forward the same letter to the fake google then to the fcc
    if we could coordenate the timing of thies letters to be sent the same date
    it would have greater impact (power in #'s )

    It's called Google Treasure Chest because the company using Google's name, is using your bank account or credit card as their own "treasure chest".

    Why anyone would be so ###ing stupid as to fall for those ads they see on Facebook is beyond me. If you're that dumb, you deserve to be ripped off.

    Google Treasure Chest - Unauthorized Debit Charge
    United States

    Why is google allowing these people to use their name when they are doing nothing but scamming and taking money without authorization? This is pathetic and I just lost my job and didn't realize that I was also going to have to pay an extra $72 dollars and now I cannot afford my sons daycare for the week. Thanks Google for giving me such a horrible experience and for stealing my money! I want this money back!
