Shopperdisc.co.uk / Taking money from my account.

United Kingdom Review updated:
Contact information:

I've recently discovered that on four separate occasions, this website has taken £10 from my account with NO authorization on my part.
Upon reading similar complaints, apparently the banks can do nothing to resolve this so I'm writing this to try and
a) Make it stop. Now.
b) To warn others.

    Hi - I too fell victim this scam via Inteflora (although many other sites do this too). What happens is when you complete the purchase you get an offer of £15 off your next purchase, you complete the simple form and then bang they've got you - all in the small print.
    However - FEAR NOT - this is simple to get all your money back.
    Compose yourself, read the advice below, practice it and then do the following :-
    Call them on 0800 731 9935 (its free to call) and be polite but forceful. Tell them they have taken money illegally out of your account and you never subscribed to this service. Say "here's whats going to happen - you are going to refund all of my contributions by the end of today otherwise my solicitor will be writing to you first thing tomorrow morning". Don't let them speak or interrupt too much and try and derail you.
    They will start by offering you 1 month's refund and then say you'll have to complete a claim form - again be direct and say "I didn't fill in any forms for you to steal my money so I'm not going to fill in any to get it back - if you can't refund my full amount please put me through to a supervisor who can".
    I was put on hold for about 30 seconds and then the same operator said they could refund it all. 2 days later the money was put back into my account (and I had 18 months at £10 per month) - the whole £180 refunded straight away.
    As I said - the key is to be confident, forceful but polite (don't swear or lose your temper).
    Good luck - and I really hope this helps.
    Remember - you're not to blame - I've got a university degree, work in the IT industry and use the internet every day and yet still fell foul of it.
