Madison Who's Who / Unauthorized credit card charges
A few months ago, i got a phone call from a representative of madison who's who saying that i am elected as a member of the year. I was foolish enough that it is a flattering experience, and i paid more than $600 for 5 year membership. The representative said that i just simply pay additional $200 or so to become a life - time member when i want to, but there won't be any additional charges. Two months later another representative called and said that they will charge $299 for annual book. I got another call 2 days ago, and i was told that i am invited for a vip member. So, i said "no thanks!" but i realized that they still charged $218. 95 against my credit card. I called my credit card company and requested depute for the amount.
I searched comsumer reports to find out whether there are other cases, finding out there are too many to ignore this scam. Mostly they have never received any services that they claimed that they would provide. I would like to know what can be done to stop this.
