Secret Cash Card / Fraudulently debited my bank account for a membership that I did not order!

1 United States Review updated:

I saw on my bank statement an electronic check payable to Secret Cash Card in the amount of $49.95. I never ordered anything from them. I was unable to read the phone number on the check copy that I printed, so I went to their web site. When I called that number I got a recorded message that said if you have any questions about your purchase go to their website to contact them, then the call is disconnected.

I contacted my bank who told me to file a Security of Loss form with them, which I am now doing. I also asked them for Secret Cash Card's phone number. The number they gave me wasn't the same as the one on the web site, but was close enough that they could call it a typo. Obviously they do not want anyone to be able to contact them. There is no address on their web site.

I filed my complaint with them online and will wait to see what happens.

    Secret Cash Card Service - I never order this service from Secret Cash Card Service. But they charge my credit card anyway.

    This service withdrew money from my account when I did not apply for the service. I was online applying for a different type of service and secret cash card made it seem like I applied for their service as well and deducted $49.95 from my bank account without my knowledge.

    I have a complaint this company debited my account for 49.95 which i didn't authorize i don't even know who this company is. and because of that debit caused my account to be overdrawn and the fee for that was 30 dollars so i would like for my money to be credited back to my account and plus the fee for the unauthorized debit. i also would like to know how did this company get access to my account number without me authorizing it? i can be reached on my cell phone at 804-605-1572 or email tjjsparkle79@yahoo.com. also how does it take for this to be credited back to my account? thank you, tamara jackson

    I did not authorize any debit to my checking account for this card. Why would I authorize a debit when I was looking for a payday loan? I have tried thru emails to resolve this but only get double talk from them. I feel that my only action now is to sue the company. If others out there feel the same; let's get together and put this scam company out of business.

    I am deeply frustrated that someone would do this but however they did, that lets me no no payday loans online again.

    I have alerted the Better Business Bureau on this situation, these are two many complaints and no action has been taken to justify why they keep doing this, if i have to go to bay news nine for them to investigate, then so be it.

    I checked my account balance one day and found that this company secret cash card had withdrew 49.95 from my checking account which also had a nsf fee of 20.00 attached to it...i contacted them and their response was that it was authorized...i think not...my bank said it was a verbal authorization but it was not....i contacted the company...they are supposedly sending my refund of 49.95 but as for the bank charge they said it was my responsibility...i did not even ask for it..something needs to be done about this scam company

    I have spoke to my bank and also to the attorney general of Iowa about this fraudulent company. We gave our bank account numbers to a company on line before xmas for a short term loan, they sold our information to this company and now I'm having unauthorized withdrawals taken from our bank. This is very fraudulent and not legal. After looking at their web site, i am not the only one that had been scammed by these people.

    I had $49.95 taken out of my account also yesterday. Had i cought it in time i could have stopped payment on it, and that would have cost me $30.00. I now have an alert posted to my account for this secret cash card service. They won't get thru my bank again, but they have to be stopped. I have gone to the attorney generals office here in Iowa, and they have posted an alert for them also. I also went to the people at "theft identity" at the attorney generals office and through my bank. This might help, but they seem to be very cautious people. But with everyones help, we may be able to stop them. I called their office an got a very rude lady who said she was just an answering service, then she hung up on me. My banker called them also, they told her that they didn't know what company it was, they were just an answering service. What a "crock"!

    I have address and phone #'s if you are interested.

    I had the same amount of money withdrew from my account as everyone here. I contacted my bank & the BBB. I will be pursuing this further to stop this fraudulent company from scamming anyone else! Has anyone got in touch with them? When I called the 401-228-9232 number it was an answering service and they never take calls. They only operate via the web. BEWARE!!

    I applied for a payday loan with another company and the money wasn't deposit into my account,so I thought that I wasn't approved for the loan. On January 29,2007 this company secret cash card charged my bank account 49.95 for service I didn't ask for and didn't authorize any transaction from my account. This cost me to have over drafts in my account.

    They took 49.95 out of my checking without my permission. They claim i signed up for their secret cash card thru a payday loan company that they will not give me the name of. If you call them they give you an e-mail address to contact. When i do they just keep telling me i signed up for the card and that they e-mailed the card to me. Never received nor do i want a secret credit card. My bank will not refund my money and charge them back.where do i get help?

    They debited 49.95 out of my account two different times and both time overdraft fees incurred. Fortunately, my bank recovered the funds back to me. I've closed that checking account because i don't trust this scandalous company at all. I've experienced all the things you guys have experienced. But i am taking legal measurements.

    This company as of today has taken 98.00 out of my bank account, and tried to get another 49,99 which cost me 20.00 to put a stop payment on, all total this company has cost me 143.00, i never authorized them to withdraw any money, never even heard of this company until i was informed i was over drafted, while trying to figure who was withdrawing my money i learned they got my information when i applied for a payday loan, believe me i never gave this company permission to withdraw my money, hell i didn't have it, thats why i was getting a payday loan, I've contacted my local police department about this my bank is also checking into it for me, also i contacted fraud watch, my local paper, and news, i need to speak to someone from this company, and i need my money back.

    I have emailed secretcashcard.com, and i have called them. Instead of doing phone calls they want you to do everything online. This does not make sense. Anyway i was emailed and told to come to this web site and was lost so i am making a complaint here. I was told that my money would be sent back to me but any other fees would not be returned. I do have a copy of the email. I do have my ticket number if you need it. I would like my 49.95 returned to me. It may not seem like a lot but it its not yours to keep.
