I am not sure exactly what to do about being ripped off by this ### organization. I am going to see my attorney. You can contact the BBB, FBI, and the attorney general's office...but I suspect this money is gone forever...My bank did inform me to always use a credit card or debit card...and never use your checking account information online...Now I have to close this stupid account before they decide to hit me again.

    I finally received a call back from this degenerate predatory organization after many many messages being left with their customer service operators. They cancelled the "Savings Discount Membership" that I never signed up for and are requiring that I send in my bank statements to prove that I was actually debited 99.49 and thereafter $14.99!!! I also filed a complaint with BBB and am seeking counsel as this warrants a class action to shut these people down for good. Will see if I EVER get cent one of a refund. Doubtful.
