Leisure Time Savings / Phone fraud!
This firm sells discount packages for a variety of goods and services for a $1.00 charge to your credit card... they had the number. How they got it I do not know but they said it is a service from the credit card company. I asked very precisely if I had to cancel anything and they said 'no'. The package arrived and I noticed it said I had to cancel within 30 days, which I did very quickly. However, my next statement had the $1.00 charge and charges from Identity Protection (for $3.95 and $49.90), Unlimited Blue Rate (for $1.95 and $$49.91) and Financial Magazine for ($1.50 and $36.00). I called all three and they two gave me a cancellation number and one would not back out the credit. They offered $100 gas coupon which I refused.
I called the Financial Magazine and inquired about my credit. They said it was refused by the claim department and then offered me a $100 gas coupon... which I refused. This leads me to think they are all in cohoots. Since then I put all charges under dispute with the credit card company and closed that account and got a new card. I was afraid they would all just keep charging their monthly fees. I called Leisure Time Savings and told them of my displeasure and asked for them to review to taped conversation where I specifically asked several times if I had to cancel anything. They say they would do it over the phone with me but instead said 'they will now hang up'. The credit card company said they do not sell any names or lists to third parties but offered possibly they got the information from the credit agencies (WOW).
I have read several other complaints on different sources on the web other then this one and people have commented they got the same call after buying Hercules Hooks or a book on drugs vs homeopathic help. My guess is that is how they got my credit card.
End of story.
