Horizon Gold Card / Customer service problems

1 United States Review updated:

We received a post card in the mail stating this was a real credit card so me and my husband thought it was a visa/mastercard. We found out afterwards that it was a store card for an online store and they took 79.95 out of my account. I found there number on another complaint site and called. The supervisor talked me into keeping the account if he took 40.00 off of the fee. I never got an email with my user id or anything like he said I would. I read other people's complaints and decided I really didn't want to get involved with this company so I called back and spoke to the same supervisor. I told him that I read up on the good and bad of the company and wanted to cancel my card and he tried to badger me into keeping the account. I told him NO and he still persisted that I keep the card. Finally he agreed to refund the rest of my money. I would not recommend this company at all.

Horizon Gold Card - Do not fall for this, it is not a credit card!
United States

The Horizon Gold Card is not a credit card! I am so ashamed to say that I paid 79.95 fort his card. I thought it was a credit card! I lost my job and needed a card to get me thru to my first paycheck. I am sitting here in tears. I need the money they took from me. It is saturday night so I must wait till Monday to call and cancel this joke. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS! IT IS NOT A CREDIT CARD. I am too upset to even type about it. they never mentioned one time that ths was a card to do nothing but purchase products from their website. And it is all junk!

This company preys on those that can least afford it . Thier decptive adds make it appear to be a Credit card when in fact it is a uselees card to by over priced junk that no one seeking a bad credit unsecured credit needs or wants. I smell a class action lawsuit here. These crooks should be exposed as such, and punished to the fullest extent the law allows!

Horizon Gold Card - Fraud & cheating!
United States

I was too expecting a REAL credit card... now they continue to charge my real credit card and the credit card company's says they need a stop transaction from Horizon... well they have no number to call for customer service... please if anyone has their number post it... I've read other complaints and this truly is fraud. I DO NOT WANT THEIR CREDIT CARD and I'm afraid now that they have my real credit card # that they won't stop charging me these fee's... How do I get rid of this problem? Advise smb!

Thank you so much for letting me know this before I gave out my card number. I thought this was ridiculous to ask for my card number to get a mastercard. Thanks very much

Customer Service Number is... 1-800-251-6144. They're persistent... but just keep telling them you want to cancel NO MATTER WHAT... you'll win. It's true, you will lose your money because they wont give you a refund for whatever reason, just accept it, cut your losses... BUT JUST GET OUT!!!

The phone number for Horizon Gold is:
1-800-251-6140
I had to call them to cancel mine, just because I had several windows open and hit the wrong button. They still try to sell you on the card even offering me $75.00 to purchase something on there site. Don't take it just cancel it.

Horizon Gold Card - Fake credit card!
United States

Ok. I kind of know what this lady is talking about, then she says that Horizon Gold Card is a f*****g scam. They get you out of 79.95 and 19.95 and then they're out the door. Who this is? I don't know. Where they are located? Who knows? I know one damn thing. Advise smb!

Horizon Gold Card - Unacceptable charges
United States

I did not authorize this company to debit 79$ from my bank account when i attempted to accept this offer the site was having difficulties and i closed out of the site and now i see 79$ debited from my bank account although i didn't complete the application. And now that im trying to contact the company (my bank provided a contact number) the phone just rings i can't reach anyone. I need some one to explain how is it that this could have happened without customer authorization. I am very upset about this, i didnt receive anything in the mail informing me about the acceptance of my application or in my email, this is just unacceptable.

Horizon Gold Card - Misleading Information
Horizon Gold
atlanta
United States

I too received this piece of mail from horizon gold card stating that i would receive $500 in five days and i would receive a visa or mastercard. I log onto the website and there on i felt this was a scam, there was no number anywhere on the site to speak to a live person before signing up with them. I tried to find other ways to contact them and i was unsuccessful, the only contact they have before you sign up with them is by email. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS CARD. ITS A SCAM

can you say B*tches? These people are rude, rude, RUDE! I call to cancel after finding out that it is basically a scam (and yes, I DID read the terms and agreements). I was transferred to 3 different ladies who all asked me why I wanted to cancel, who all offered me a lower monthly fee, who all offered a refund in the amount of $10. After I was told that I was not interested, they kept pressuring me. When I finally said firmly that I AM NOT INTERESTED, PLEASE CANCEL MY CARD, the last lady I was on the phone with said "yeah" and nearly hung up before I asked her for a confirmation number. DO NOT GO THROUGH THIS COMPANY! HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, HORRIBLE "DEAL!"
