PrivacyGuard / Enrollment

1 United States Review updated:

The company of PrivacyGuard (owned by Trilegiant Corporation) has UNETHICAL business practices and are a bunch of scammers.

Let me explain:

I rented a truck from Budget Trucks last year to make a cross-country move. Apparently PrivacyGuard mailed an $8 check to my old address and if I cashed the check, I would be automatically enrolled in a $13.99/month service to watch my credit. The only problem, I didn't cash the check as evidence by a copy PrivacyGuard provided me of the signed check. On the back it reads "For deposit only." The only problem is that is NOT MY SIGNATURE. The company falsified this and I was charged $13.99 a month from 3/9/2010 until 10/11/2010. I called them up and after much fighting they refunded two of my payments but they still stole $83.94 from me. This is completely UNETHICAL and they should be put in jail for stealing.

    Here's more information:

    Customers of websites like 1-800-Flowers.com, Travelocity, Shutterfly, and Orbitz are reporting mysterious monthly reoccurring charges to their credit cards.

    Thanks to marketing tactics (i.e., those pop-up windows) used during check out, without proper consent consumers are accidentally joining club memberships and having to pay for them monthly!

    Most people don't even realize they are being charged every month for a service they never ordered!

    PrivacyGuard - unauthorized charge

    United States

    I may have accepted a $1 charge to look at the supposed benefits of this company, but accepted nothing further. The mistake I made was in submitting my $1 by credit card, making it easy for this company to bill me in the succeeding month for $129.99. I will report this to my credit card company as I have no intention whatsoever of paying for this scam.
