Platinum Rewards - Unwanted calls
Platinum Rewards

This company keeps calling even though I have asked to be put on their do not call list and have advised them that I am on a do not call list. No number comes up on caller ID. They say they are called Platinum Rewards and are based in Clearwater Florida.

Platinum Rewards - Unwanted calls!

They keep calling for someone named Marilyn. We keep telling them they have the wrong number! I lied once and said I was her and finally got a supervisor but it did no good. Still calling 2 -4 times a day.

This Company (Platinum Rewards based in Clearwarter, FL)calls me 3-4 times a day and in no way do I want their gas card.
I told them to quit calling and they continue to do so.
They are in violation of the law and I am going to file a FCC complaint. However, I am considering a class action law suit.
The problem is is that I am an attorney that works for the government and I can only represent myself.
If anyone knows this company's address it will help greatly.

I AM ANGRY. Please read this first then I'll give my history:
I got a "Platinum Rewards" call today 02/16/09 at my office. The call held for 20 seconds when I picked up, READY TO FIRE BACK at these scammers. To my amazement, the person on the other end began punching numbers in and I could hear an automated response asking for a "pin number". After countless attempts to get the woman to acknowledge me, I realized she was speaking to a different victim... I was blind copied in on this conversation between an agent and a cardholder. I couldn't be heard at all, nor could I hear the other cardholder. But the agent began reading off "Name" "Phone Number" "Credit Card Number, Confirmation number" and then she read the terms and conditions of the transaction. I am outraged! How could this happen? Basically we have a company sharing info as sensitive as addresses, credit card numbers, phone numbers with ANYONE and who knows? EVERYONE!? WHO CAN I GO TO SO I CAN REPORT THIS??!! So...

It began with me -- my fault --I placed a "secure" online order using my name and my husband's VISA check card. All of a sudden I get these idiots calling me at WORK. I play along a little, but I decided to have my husband call the bank after the 3rd call. I know this can't be legit if they're calling my work saying, "I'm calling for (so and so) about her VISA card ending in XXXX". WHAT??! How DARE you call me at my place of business and divulge ANY personal information at all with the person answering the phone!??

After all, this isn't even MY card or even MY account! Somehow, since my name was associated with that particular card I get calls.

I get annoyed and angry so as soon as they call me, I pick the phone up and tell them to get a real job etc etc etc. Weekly practice. I've asked to be removed to no avail.

Somebody needs to know how wrong these business practices are!

Platinum Rewards is a MAJOR PHONE HARRASSMENT COMPANY -- I am receiving calls from this company 5 -7 times a day. You can't get them to stop. No where to call and get them to stop.

They must be operating illegally. I wish the SEC, FBI, or even the Secret Service would investigate they must be doing wire transfers and such trying to do sales.

They ignore you when you try to get them to stop calling. My phone is an emergency line because of my health with seizures and such. Told them so. They just keep calling.

Someone needs to take a baseball bat to their computer system or figure out how to send a virus to stop this nonsense. We should not be harrassed to this extent with no means to stop them. BAD BAD BAD Company

I received a couple calls from this company over the past month or so, and accepted what the young guy had to say. I received the packages they discussed with me. I had an opportunity to save myself a lot of $money$ on a trial basis. Found one thing i liked and went with it. Plus i got a great gift just for looking at the package.

I get several calls a day, week after week at my place of business all telling me the same, "I'm calling reguarding the credit card ending in XXXX and you have $200.00 in in rewards"...and so on. I ask them everytime they call to stop calling me and they continue to harrass me. One guy even started arguing with me and I did what I always have to do...hung up on them because they don't stop! I hope someone finds a way to make this company stop and I would be more than happy to help in any way.

This company is absolutely infuriates me!!! This is the 3rd time they called me in 2 days. They give me same story- "your credit card XXXX and we want to send you money"- a bunch of crap. What they refered to as my credit card is actually my debit card and it happens to be that I hold credit and debit cards thru the bank that I work for. I would think that I would know of ANY promotions associated with either one of the cards! When I attempted to tell them that I was not interested in receiving any of their "Free" stuff they turn hostile on me. Speaking loudly over me and telling that I am wrong about their association with my bank! How ridiculous is that?! Please, if anyone finds a way to shut them up and put them out of their shady business I would love to help any way I can! I have the numbers they called me from:
1866-407-4275; 1866-407-7982; 1866-407-6262;

This is a scam! They won't stop calling day and night 7 days a week! I finally asked for information from them: name of company, phone number, name of person speaking to, address, verify that they said there was no call list, etc...to turn in to attorney general. They won't take you off of a call list they say doesn't exist. If anyone knows how to get them to stop, let me know.

Hi I work for Platinum One Marketing. We are legitimate and a great company to work for! We follow all laws and guidelines. We only charge prices that are agreed upon by our customers. Sorry to break the news but trying to bring about a lawsuit is just a waste of time because we have done nothing wrong. Go platinum one!!!

I too have been getting at least 2 or 3 calls a day from this company. I've ignored the calls up until today. Today I answered to get them to stop calling. I asked for the company name: Platinum Rewards and their phone number. The number they gave me: 866-491-7121 doesn't work, surprise, surprise. I asked the rep to put me on their do not call list. He started to get belligerent; I talked over him almost yelling to take me off their list. We'll see what happens. I know this is all because I used my debit card to purchase a Snuggie. Whatever you do, don't list any real numbers when buying stuff online from stupid TV ads!

They are dillusional, living in a fantasy world. If they're so great and run such a legitimate company, why do they seem to (alledgedly) resort to theft of peoples card info. I KNOW I DIDN'T GIVE IT TO THEM, YET THEY HAVE IT. My card company says they shouldn't have it. If it's not theft of info, they need to tell us all HOW, WHEN, WHERE and WHO they are getting it from. Is someone selling it to them ? Do they have spyware in our computers or something? Either way, I know I don't want them to have my info. IF I DIDN'T GIVE IT TO THEM, WHAT MAKES IT ALL RIGHT FOR THEM TO HAVE IT ???? If it's not card theft why do card companies call it THEFT OF INFO, IDENTITY THEFT, STOLEN CARD and YOUR CARD HAS BEEN COMPROMISED, (just to name a few) and advise closing the account ???
AND, why do the fast talking telemarketers have to lie through their teeth to get folks to agree to try the stuff they're peddling and not even realize the lies till they see their card has been charged. The lies in the beginning of the conversation are not recorded of course. Who's training these telemarketers???? SO LYING IS A GREAT AND LEGITIMATE WAY TO DO BUSINESS NOW???? Furthermore, a great and legitimately run company wouldn't allow the constant annoying multitudes of daily harrassing phone calls from their employees even though they've been asked to stop calling, or in my case, a closed account. A number just left in limbo in their system for their mass of employees to keep calling.
I CALL IT ALL SNEAKY AND UNDERHANDED.
They really must be very proud of the wonderful reputation their company has.

I have also received several phone calls from a company calling themselves "Platinum Rewards". And they also gave me contact numbers that do not work. I have told them repeatedly that I am NOT interested in their offers, yet they continue to call me so they can send me my "free gifts" that are just sitting there in the warehouse waiting to be shipped. All they have to do is verify my address and they'll be on their merry way. They told me I used my credit card to make a purchase with one of their "Marketing Partners" and that I am eligible for a $200 Wal-Mart gift card or a $100 gas card. Each time they call I am 'eligible' for something different. I ask them which marketing partner I used my card with and they conveniently cannot provide me with that information. Each time they've called I expressed to them that I am unhappy with the fact that they have my name, address, and last four digits of my credit card. I also ask them to stop calling and reititerate that I am not interested in whatever it is they are offering. I, too, have encountered some rude individuals from this company. I am sorry, but any legitimate company should be able to provide me with valid contact information. Every time they call they speak so quickly as to confuse you and get you agree to their scheme without you truly being aware of what you're getting into. That is predatory marketing as far as I am concerned. Everything about this company screams FRAUD! I think the FBI, FCC and every other pertinent government agency should be made aware of these scheisters! I hope Platinum Rewards gets what's coming to them because it is clear that I am not the only one who knows that they are up to no good.

And another thing... If Platinum Rewards, Platinum One Marketing or whatever they choose to call themselves is such a legitimate company, why can I not find them listed on the Florida Deparment of State's website? What is the Corporation/LLC/LLP name that is registered with the state? And what is the actual DBA (doing business as) name? I think we should call Dateline, 20/20 or one of the major news networks about this and bring these suckers down! Ever hear of something called deceptive business practices? Unfair business practices? Fraud? Negligence? And the list goes on... For those of you who have said there is no legal action that can be brought against these individuals, you are sorely mistaken. I guarantee you there is plenty of evidence against these scammers to make a case stick. You know what they say about karma! These jerks will be reminded of that while they are rotting in prison for fraud!

Here's a link to the Florida Department of State's Website with all of Platinum I Marketing Group, Inc.'s information:

http://sunbiz.org/scripts/cordet.exe?action=DETFIL&inq_doc_number=P04000135419&inq_came_from=NAMFWD&cor_web_names_seq_number=0000&names_name_ind=N&names_cor_number=&names_name_seq=&names_name_ind=&names_comp_name=PLATINUMIMARKETINGGROUP&names_filing_type=

One thing I did notice is that Platinum I was going to be administratively dissolved in March of 2007, but it seems that it was cancelled. I wonder why Dept. of State was threatening administrative dissolution? Interesting! Below is all the info from the link I posted with the exception of the PDF versions of the company's annual reports.
