[Resolved] Intelius - Value Max Scam / fruadulent credit card charges

1 United States Review updated:

Be advised of this Intelius - Value Max Scam!! In December 2008, I used Intelius to do a reverse lookup for $4.99. And I have just discovered a charge of $19.95 in both December 2008 and January 2009 for a membership thing that I never subscribed to Value Max. After researching, I've found a lot of comlains that INTELIUS is the one that sells the credit card info to VALUE MAX or at least colloborate. EVERYONE, BE AWARE.

Anyone willing to go legal? If we don't STOP this who will?

    If you select a promotional price on the Intelius website, you will also receive a free 7 day trial of Identity Protect. After the 7 day trial, it will convert to a regular subscription and bill out at $19.95 monthly.

    However, there’s no obligation. If you determine within the 7 day trial that you no longer want Identity Protect, you can cancel your service anytime, online or over the phone with a customer support representative.

    It sounds like you have also accepted a third party company’s offer that is advertised on the Intelius website. If you no longer wish to be enrolled in that third party company’s service, please call 888-445-2727 Monday – Friday 4:30am – 9:00pm PST. We will be more than happy to assist you.

    They also charged me for a membership that I never signed up for. Some how they had my credit card number and charged my account $59.85. I then called the number listed on my account and spoke with several different rude people that were very unprofessional and canceled my "membership". Hope it doesn't happen again!
