ShoppersDiscount.co.uk / unauthorised deductions from my bank account

United States Review updated:
4.9
It seems that since I booked flights with Easyjet over the internet in Feb 2008 I have had £8 per month taken, by Shopperdiscount.co.uk, and without my knowledge. It also appears to be a regular and similar complaint by other Easyjet customers.
I have e-mailed Shoppersdiscount demanding cancellation of my so called 'membership' and a return of my money. So far without acknowledgement.
This must be highly irregular and probably illegal.How can they do this on such a wide scale?

I'm glad it's not just me. I have never knowingly signed up fot this hookum but whilst checking my statement online I noticed that these crooks have had £10.00 from my account. So now I have to put up with the hassle of going to my branch and get a visa dipute form and filling that in and then endure all the nonsense that goes with it.

I too have had £8 taken from my account. I have never booked or flown with Easyjet but have used the account for other on-line flight bookings. I have no idea how to email these people (not for want of trying) so have been unable to express either my discontent or to cancel my 'membership'. Anybody got an email address they would like to contribute?

It’s not just Easyjet, I bought some flowers for my aunt’s 95th birthday last October from Interflora via the net, and have been getting emails from shoppers discount ever since. Because I didn’t know what it was I have deleted them, now I find that they have been taking £10 a month since November from my account. Needless to say I have cancelled my card. Definitely a scam

I have recieved my credit card statement with two £8 deductions from shoppersdiscount.co.uk. i have no idea who they are but have a telephone number obtained through my credit card company. 08082341539. automated system asks for credit card number. unwilling to give my number stayed on the line then put through to customer service dept and canceled membership, also asked for refund of payments and told would be refunded.

just phone the number on credit card statement and go ahead until they put you trough an operator. i have been told they will refund last 3 payments back, and they are sending me a claim form for the rest. good luck

We were "done" with this as well, bought something last may from Allposters, have been payuing since, call the number and follow the instructions seems a good plan to me!

we too have done by easyjet, they have taken £8 a month from our account since august last year, we phoned shopperdiscount.co.uk on 08082341539 they promised to refund last month money and send us a claim form for the rest of the money. they also terminated the so call membership with immediately effect. most likely they know that they are in the wrong so ring them up and get your money back .

I've just got my bank statement today and on checking my account have also found that £10.00 has been taken out. I booked plane tickets through Expdedia, can only think its as a resulkt of this. I will try the number given and see if that works to cancel.

The same thing happened to my mother, she booked train tickets via national express and has just realised shes had £10 taken out her account for the last 3 months! I have spoken to consumer direct and they suggest writing to shopper discounts and requesting a full refund, i intend to do this on my mums behalf but im also going to send the BBCs Watchdog programme an email!!

Ya, they take £10 now... I got stung when I bought tickets from thetrainline.com; the rotters promised me £15 off my next ticket if I signed up - there was no mention of any monthly fee... why do reputable companies get involved with these a-holes? :(
