Great Fun / charge credit card inapproprately

1 Nowalk, CT, United States Review updated:

Great Fun continues to charge consumers for fake services. I have been getting $10 checks for a year and fine print says cashing enrolls you and they will bill 11.99 for next 11 months. No deal there! Never cashed but noticed that my credit card has been billed for past 9 months!!! Discover says they pull from websites. In my case likely a precheck box on cheaptickets.com. Obviously the intent is to grab your dollar for nothing. Such fraudulent intent has resulted in lawsuits in many States. I checked and mine won a suit in 2005...so nothing has changed! I filed a formal complaint immediately with the attorney general as I am one of many. I plan to volunteer to bring this to a second suit with penalties associated. Sneaky, deceptive practices must not be tolerated. Let your AG know. Demand restitution. Go to small claims. Write to the editor of your local newspaper. It is time to shut this company down after over 30 years of robbing people.

    I agree and this needs to be reported to the FTC in addition to the sources that you mentioned. In the world today many people could be affected negatively by these charges.

    I think allen is on the right track. Make it cost more than it's worth for Trilegiant to grab your dollar:

    - Don't do business with any Trilegiant / Cendant company (too many to list here);

    - Stop doing business with the company that provided your name & Account # (Miles Kimball in my case);

    - File a complaint with your state's Attorney General (my state was one of many states who won a class action lawsuit against TLG & Chase in December 2006)

    - Contact TLG and demand your money back (there are many 800 numbers depending on which TLG company gottcha) TLG Great Fun 800-285-5903 / TLG Comp Home 800-636-2379
