Shoppers Discounts / E-Bay rip off

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Everyone don't feel bad. They got me too. However, I hold a very high government contracting position. I will do my best to fry these rip-offs. E-Bay must do more to protect their clients. This is where I got nailed. My bank states: The only way to stop them is to close account charge card and activate another.

    Shoppers Discounts - unknowingly charging credit cards
    Shoppers Discounts
    United States

    Immediately after my wife paid the IRS and FTB for our estimated taxes 12 dollars were charged by Shoppers Discounts. It seemed that they manage to get hold of her credit card number while she used it for her quarterly tax payments. I have demanded a refund and they promised to do it but reasoned that we subscribed to their services which is BS.

    Shoppers Discounts - Unauthorized charges

    I found a charge on my bank card for $12 and immediately had no idea what it was for but it showed as Shoppers Discounts, I then performed and Internet search on the Company and found many other complaints with the same $12 charge on credit cards.

    I also saw this website (complaintsboard) has come up with the search on Shoppers Discounts and decided to file a report of my own. At this point I reviewed my previous bank statement and realized this goes all the way back to 9/03/2008! Also when it was deducted from my account, it was overdrawn and I was charged by my bank for an overdraft fee.

    I've had direct debit payments made from a credit card company Marks and Spencer, I had closed down in November. The credit card company continued to pay Shoppers Discounts on my behalf without my knowing. This payment was unauthorised and prevented me closing down an account and continued debt and interest on the credit card. This affected my credit rating as it was a returned direct debit from my Current bank account.

    From my online statements I come to know that $12 is being
    deducted from my account on a monthly basis by some
    I want to inform you that I do not know why this transfer
    is happening as I have not authorized any such person /
    company for these deductions from my account. So I request
    you to stop any more deductions .
    And return the amounts deducted so far.

    Shoppers Discounts - Unauthorized Credit Card Charge
    Shoppers Discounts and Rewards
    United States

    I bought a book from After I finished they redirected be to the Shoppers Discount site. I signed up for it thinking it was a coupon program and not seeing anything about paying any fees. I did not give this company my number and information. So a month later when I noticed the $12 charge on my card I went the the shoppers discount website to cancel the membership and get my money back. I have submitted a cancellation, so it is canceled, and a refund request and I am just waiting for the refund. I am however not happy that they did such a thing.

    I am very upset that which has never done this before and I have never had problems with would do this. I will be writing to about this in the hopes that they choose not to associate with this company any longer.

    Hopefully my refund comes soon.

    This is an update.

    The $12 was refunded on the 11th of May. I am just glad that I caught the problem within the first month so that I could get it refunded. I hope others read this and know what they are getting into before hand rather than it taking them by surprise. told me they sent my email regarding this problem to the appropriate location to be handled. Otherwise I have not heard from them. I hope they do something to protect there customers, for instance not handing out their credit card information.

    I recently bought a bottle of Blue Berry Punch online and now I have been charged £8.00 pounds by shoppers discounts. I completely disagree with this and think its a big scam that should be stopped
