I was scammed by googlemoneytree.com. They charged my account without authorization. I called to request for reversal of charges. They said it was in the fine print that I only had 7 days. I did not even realize that it was a trial thing. They claimed to send me stuff. I waited and then my bank sent me overdraft notice since they also charged $94.89 to my account for another product that I paid $18.99 for shipping cost only. I called and was put on hold forever. Not resolved yet. The other company was Grantguide [protected]. These companies should be shut down. Any legitimate company will refund to customers if they are not happy with the products or any wrongful charges. Daniel of San Gabriel

Googlemoneytree.com - unauthorized charge
United States

I usually ignore make money working-from-home spam email but since it had the Google name on it and extra money would be useful these days I clicked on this one. It looked like I would receive a kit for free and all I would need to pay was $3.88 for shipping & handling. I paid with my bank debit card. This was the evening of December 3, 2008. Today (December 10th) I just happened to check my account on-line and noticed a pending charge of $72.21 from Google Money Tree and also the cleared charge of $3.88 with a phone number included. I called that number which is a third party agency and they explained that the $72.21 monthly charge was noted in the terms and conditions which I agreed to. I told them their website was very deceptive and I did not notice that charge. They told me they could not refund the $72.21 because I agreed to the terms and I had seven days to cancel. I said first of all I never even received the kit and secondly, seven days from December 3rd is the 10th so I was within the seven days to cancel. She said the first day was the 3rd since I received the user id to access the website. I had her read me the terms & conditions and that was not specified. I've since noticed many complaint sites on the web regarding this scam.

I have not ordered any product from these people and credit card charge appeared on my billing info. I called them and they say that I should have declined the product within 7 days. I have never received any package to see what it contains and had no idea that I have ordered anything with google.

I responded to their advertised "make money at home" scam. I sent them a small fee for the trial version--to see if I was interested in their product. Next thingI know, my bank account is -$97. They took $72 more dollars-unauthorized-for a monthly membership fee, plus, it cost me a $29 non-sufficient fund fee at the bank. Please don't let them do this to you ! I doubt I'll get any satisfaction from them, or my money back---expensive lesson to start 2009. P Watson

In my anger, I put my address in the wrong place Googlemoneytree.com is located in Las Vegas, not Greenville. I, too, am contacting my bank to stop any further withdrawels from my account. My advice: don't give your credit card info to any company unless you know it's reputation first. In my desparation to earn extra money, bcause I'm disabled and can't survive off my monthly benefits, I got very careless-----the $97 this company cost me, will now have a domino effect on my quality of living for a couple of months to absorb it. Thanks, P. Watson

I agreed to receive an introductory informational cd only to find that Google Money Tree charged my credit card $72, 21 in unauthorized charges. Upon seeing that charge on my statement, I called and was able to cancel the account. I was unable to get a refund for the fraudulent charge.

Google Money Tree

In Dec of 2008 I found the add for work at home business today by googlemoneytree.com. I said that I could get the free CD for shipping and handingly of $3.88 Being out of work I thought this would be a way for me to earn some money while looking for a permanet job. I got the CD which does not work can't open it at all on my computer. I then went to my credit card account and found out that they had not only charged my account for the $3.88 but 7 days later they had charged me $72.21 for what I have no idea
I called my credit card company and got the phone number of Google Money Tree and I talked to an Issac and told him that I had no idea of what this charge for $72.21 was for and that I had not ordered anything other the the free CD and paid for the Shipping. I told him to cancal the account they put me on which I was unaware of and that I wanted the money refuned. He said they can cancel the account so that no other billings would be made but they would not refund my $72.21. That it was past the cancalation time. I told him I did not agree to any of this only the free CD and he said that is all he can do. I told him this company is a faud and that I would report it to the BBB which I am going to do with a thought. This is so bad that these people take money from people that can't afford it and lie and cheat about what they are giving away to help you is bull. I hope that they get these companies like this and put them all in jail. Even the people that work for them cause they know this is a scam. It is just a shame that people out here trying to make ends meet and have trust in there fellow man and this is what they get. Stealing is Stealing now matter how it is done. It is still Stealing. I am so upset and I know I will never get my money back but I think this should be on the news and people told to watch out for this company. Maybe that would stop some of this...

Googlemoneytree.com - Unauthorized bank account charges
United States

I got taken for $72.21 by a company named googlemoneytree.com. Thinking their site was closely associated by Google, Inc, I trusted that the info presented by this company was trustworthy. I ordered an info packet they claimed would explain how I could make some extra money using the internet, and by insulation, claimed that it could be done with Google, Inc. The info packet was to have been sent to me “free” for only the payment of $3.88 for postage. A week or so later, I noticed a charge on my bank account statement for $72.21. I immediately phoned googlemoneytree.com for an explanation. They claimed I had not only ordered an info packet, but had also agreed to a “free” 7-day trial of their website. They also claimed they had sent me an email providing my user name and password to their site. Bottom line is that I received neither their info packet nor the email they allegedly sent to me. However, I asked for a refund since I had received neither of the services they claimed I had sent for. I now have submitted complaints to several consumer advocate sites, as well as attorney general consumer complaint sites, both in Nevada and Ohio, as well as the BBB in Las Vegan, NV. The bottom line is that this is obviously a “boiler room” operation out of Las Vegas. Their “customer support” phone number(s) put you in touch with rude and uncooperative phone operators who adamantly refuse to provide any meaningful answers other than, “We have a policy of absolutely no refunds.” Instead of providing any additional alternatives, they simply continue to repeat that same mantra over and over. When asked for a supervisor’s name, phone number, or email address, the phone person merely states that his supervisor accepts no phone calls or emails, period. When asked for the corporate email address, they claim there is none. I was finally able to get a mailing address of the company, which is nothing more than a suite number someplace in Las Vegas. When I asked if they knew what kind of a company they were working for, they hung up. I called another, different, toll-free number and got the same response. I emailed the “customer support” email address provided on their website. The response I got was, “Please call the toll-free number for support.” Of course, they failed to read my email which advised them I had called BOTH of their toll-free number and had received nothing by rude, uncooperative “service” reps. I finally called back and got a person by the name of Jason who verified that my "account" had been cancelled and that I would receive no "additional" charges to my account. I took that to mean that though there would be no more charges to my account, there would also be no credit issued for the amount they stole from me. I merely put a stop-payment on the payment and cancelled my bank card account. There's no way they can steal any additional money from me. Then, I lodged complaints with every government, state, city, and local consumer protection office in both my home state and Nevada where these thieves operate. In this way, I'll cost them much more than the money they stole from me by having them respond to each and every complaint I have lodged against them. I also plan on filing a suit against them in small claims courts both here in my home county and in Las Vegas. At least I should get the satisfaction of getting a lien against them. Even though I may never collect, I'll have the satisfaction of having caused them some irritation Eventually, this will all cause this outfit to collapse, at which point I will have a party. Join me! Do what I'm doing. Inundate them with paper until they just fold up their Arab tents and go into the desert, hopefully to die of hunger and thirst. I tell you, it's too bad for them they got me mad. They'll regret ever hearing my name. I'm sick and tired of these hoodlums stealing from us all. Everyone else shoudl do the same thing. That's the only way to stope these ###! Cost THEM money! Too bad I can’t get an email address to inform the “real” google that their reputation is being severely tarnished, if not destroyed by the illegal and improper actions of this website which seems to indicate they are connected to Google, Inc. As a matter of fact, had they not formulated their name as they have, I never would have given them a second look. So, I’m trying to get an email address for Google Corporate so I can lodge a complaint with them about a company that’s implying a connection with them so that Google can be aware of what’s going on. Unfortunately, Google seems to be following the same uncommunicative tactics that googlemoneytree.com is using. I simply will boycott each and every website and product advertised on Google and switch my search engine to Opera. So, the hell with Gooble! Again, joine me in snowing these ### under with a mountain of complaints, letters, emails and phone calls. You may not get your money returned, but revenge is sweet. Besides, it's fun to rile their phone reps. Some of them really get excited when I ask them if they know what kind of a company they're working for. It's a hoot! One of the reps told me his last name was "Toady", so I explained what his last name meant, and he hung up on me. I got a real belly laugh out of that. Try it! It's fun, honestly. The best part is that it makes me feel a whole lot better!

Google charged me $72.21 after I ordered a sample kit for $3.88. Now I don't know how to stop them from continuing to charge me every month. On top of that I have never gotten the kit! Anyone have any answers for me? Please...

I hear you. I'm in the same boat. I assumed like many that because the company had GOOGLE'S name on it, that it was legit. I guess they proved us wrong.

Googlemoneytree.com - Unauthorized billing
United States

I can not believe that I fell for this scam. I know better. I have thought of doing this over and over and always backed out. I am just really getting desperate for financial help and so I thought I would try it for just the shipping and handling of only $3.88.

I never received the kit and my account was charged in just a couple of days for $72.00. Now I can't get hold of them at all. The phone number is disconnected. So I have been ripped off $75.88, when I don't even have the money to pay sll of my bills as it is. Like I really had the money to throw away.

I feel violated and I am very upset and angry. I will never trust anything on-line again.

“Attorney General Abbott Charges Web Site Operator with Orchestrating Fraudulent Work-at-Home Scheme

Infusion Media Inc.’s ‘GoogleMoneyTree’ uses high profile name to deceive out-of-work Internet users

AUSTIN – Attorney General Greg Abbott today charged two Utah-based defendants with operating a fraudulent work-at-home scheme. The state’s enforcement action names Infusion Media Inc. and Jonathan D. Eborn, whose “GoogleMoneyTree.com” promised six-figure earnings for conducting specialized Google and Yahoo Internet searches.

According to investigators, the defendants promised big payouts in order to convince Web users to spend $3.88 on shipping and handling for a “free kit” that supposedly would show them how to make money from home. Those who purchased the kit were later surprised to discover they were being charged $72 a month by the defendants.”

Full press release here:

They are encouraging other victims of this scam to “file complaints with the Office of the Attorney General toll-free at (800) 252-8011 or file complaints online at http://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov.”

I was totally used and abused by the Google Money Tree too! To date I have sunk in over $290 into their scam. I run a non-profit and was out of the country volunteering in an orphanage, and when I returned home I found that $72.71 had been taken out of my account each month! I called the number on my bill and they said there was nothing they could do about it! So much for the free kit!

Same experience w/ Googlemoneytree. They ripped me off for $72.21. I still can't find where it states we have 7 days. The Kit is a .08 CD and you can't sit through it . Don Morgan Dmorgsupsl@aol.com Florida.
Using Google's name got to be Illegal. Any Attorney that is filing a Class action Contact me.
