United States
Savings 2 GO along with some other weird things appeared on my bank statement. I had around 40, 000 in my bank account, now i'm locked out of it for 30 days because of fraud. Now i'm going to be late on rent, and my car insurance is probably going to be canceled. All because of stupid scam businesses taking stuff out of my account with no approval. I had to file fraud. And on the membership letter I received from them it says I did an over the phone membership with them using my card, and my card number's last 4 digits are on there! I hope these people get caught!

I received the sticker in the mail like a month ago and shredded it thinking nothing of it. I was charged $14.95 and dont know why. They said i gave them my email address saying i wanted to sign up for this. How do you get my card number from my email address. Suspicious. They are suppose to refund me my money, but we will see.

Just discovered this on my account, 14.95. What the heck? I never got a call about this or anything! It's a business card I rarely use.

The only thing I have ordered was the Slap Chop online. I'm not saying it WAS them, but there is no other explanation. BE WARY!

If you receive a "savings 2 go" membership card call the number on the back ASAP and cancel this membership. Otherwise you WILL be charged! I received this same card and for some reason I had a weird feeling that I should check it out and see what this card was because I had not signed up for anything. I found this compliant board and read how you were all charged. So I called the company and they claimed that I checked a box saying I wanted to try their services when I was buying something on the internet on another website that had nothing to do with their company. Their is no way to prove that you did not check that box and they cannot even tell you which site you were on when you "checked the box." So call and cancel if you get this card in the mail to avoid charges. They are sneaky and its sad that this is the way they earn their money. Losers!

This is how it works. after buying something online or to some stores in partner with savings to go. some of your informations like your name, address, phone nos. & the last 4 digits of credit card will be kept. after several days or weeks comes savings to go using a third party which is a call center owned by christopher pallante & luciano castro, agents will call you telling that, you being a great customer using your credit/debit card that ends with # you are entitled to receive free gifts like a luxury vacation, a trip for two, gift certicates, etc..in exchange for trying the program savings to go. w/c costs you a little amount, maybe a dollar or two for a shipping & handling fee, now if you wont call the toll free no. to cancel the membership afer 10 days, you will be charge with those $49.95, 15.95 etc.. per month. unless you call to cancel.. get it, they will record your entire conversation as a proof that you agree with the terms & conditions for safety purposes. just be aware!
I hope these information would be a great help for you all..

I contacted Leisure Plus aka Savings to go at 888 527 2589...It appears that when buying something last February from an infomercial. they had offered a $10 rebate for trying this service.. I had truly forgotten about it until I started getting$14.95 charges for both Leisure Plus and Savings to go..In talking to a representative named Kea today I insisted on cancelling the membership.. She was fine with cancelling the LeisurePlus and stating I would receive $14.95 back to my credit card within 7 days, however a bit hedgy when, while on hold, I was listening to their commercial and realized they too, were this Savings to Go, .so I asked her if they were one in the same and she hesitated to answer, however when I told her I had listened to their commercial while on hold, she admitted yes, they were and became defensive telling me that I agreed to the service and got a 10 dollar rebate on my product and confirmed the membership by logging in my email 2 times.. I proceeded to tell her that this had been a telephone order, I never got any rebates, and I never entered my email address anywhere.. She tried to reoffer me the program, I refused and she then said she would be happy to cancel my Savings to Go membership as well and again, refund this last $14.95 charge within 7 days.
So folks, use the number above, call them and cancel those unwanted -unauthorized memberships and charges.. Stay tough, they do try to convince you you asked for this.. Hope this has been helpful... Best of luck, .. Guess we all need to pay more attention when we are ordering on line or from infomercials but its no excuse to get taken for something either..

I work for a credit card company, if you see charges from savingstogo, WuYiTea, anything with the word "ACAI" in it or MIG netherlands, rewards savings center, please call your credit card company to open a dispute so they can be, first of all, credited back to you but secondly so they can all be tagged and eventually stopped from happening to anyone ever again, its ridiculous the number of calls I get about these charges showing up and especially on elderly accounts where they have all there bills come on their card each m onth but not merchandise purchases so they just write a check and dont look at statements until a year later and they see that they have been scammed for over a year for 14.95 or 19.99 a month over and over again. Also look out for small charges from paypal that have corresponding credits. dont think they are all credited, there will probably be 6 chgs and 5 credits, 7 charges and 6 credits, etc so they make you think it was a mistake and credited them all back on the same day when in reality they are sliding one through. Never feel afraid or stupid to call no matter how small the charge is, they could be "testing" to see if that smaller charge was able to go through, then why not each month or next time a larger charge. also its not a big deal to replace your card to get a new number, usually want to do that the first time with these types of charges because more often than not they will do it again even after the first dispute and credit and they will use another merchant number or company name but most likely be related somehow(after free trial, etc.) so just replace it and remember to call the few recurring billings you have set up to let them know your acct number will change, trust me, its worth the few minutes of prevention instead of having to call in each month to dispute again.

The call center is ran by Christopher Pallante who lives in Florida while the site is ran by Luciano Castro. I got this info by talking to one of their agents. They look like they are running a bogus center, scamming many people.

looks like this Christopher Pallante guy has many bogus business. Luciano Castro maybe his sidekick. There two names always appear many places for fraud. I made a search, also some FAFS, newline platinum card was also a bogus business they have. Please please investigate them

yes, I agree with what was all said. I am a call center agent just resigned with this company, they have one here in the philippines located in cebu, all their accounts are fraud which misleadpeople in using their credit cards, I hope that the their activities would be investigated. They dont scam only their customers but also their employees.

This is why I always wait for the as seen on tv stuff to come out in stores — they make me nervous. I bought smooth away from cvs a while back for like $10, in cash. the product wasn't very effective but at least I didn't have problems like this, thank god. scary that it happened to you, though. thanks for telling us all about it. =)

Savings 2 Go is a clever SCAM: They attach themselves to an online $10 rebate for a product you are purchasing (from an infomercial). After submitting your credit card information for the product, you are only asked if you want a rebate. If you click "yes", then--every month-- a $14.95 charge appears on your credit card that you cannot account for.
BTW, you won't see your $10 rebate either. I sent them every computer receipt & printout I had & they simply said "not a valid receipt" They are BS (as in beneath ###)!
Call 800-448-0166 and demand cancellation. Then, call the Better Business Bureau.
