Shopping Essentials / Scam

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Shopping Essentials is a scam that attaches to other purchases. If you do not actively cancel they will charge your credit card indefinitely. I purchased a gift certificate from and Shopping Essentials started charging me $14.95 a month for 4 months. I assumed that it was something that my husband purchased, but once I noticed that the charge was occurring every month I asked him about it. He knew nothing about it, so I called the number listed: On your credit card, it will look like this SHOPPINGESSEN [protected] CT.

They said that they would cancel my membership (which I never enrolled in), but would only credit me one month.

There are many other people and websites reporting Shopping Essentials. We need to shut them down!!!

    Dear sirs; I have been trying to call Shopping essentials .com for 2 days now, to cancel the program that they say can be cancelled at any time, this is a major fraud scheme. I called american express and they gave me another number to call 888 999 o557 . I have called two other numbers One that Pyramid Collections gave me, Pyramid collections is the co I purchased a dress from, They are the ones that are promoting shopping essentials .com the number they gave me is 888-243-6180, and another number that they give you is 800 499 6757, all bogus numbers, what they do is keep a answering record on saying they are busy helping other customers at this time . so I kept on line for hours, I do not want them to credit my credit card for any $ 11.95 amonth, I did not give them the right to do this . but I am very worried because I had used my credit card to purchase the dress, ( which I have now sent back to pyramid collection .com also called pryamid book, can you help me with this problem as I am distraught with anxiety over this after reading about Shopping essentials [redacted] the number for Pryamid is 1800 333 4220, They are promoting this as a way to entice people to buy the bogus program and then they will charge peoples credit cards, or bank statements once they get your credit info, which people give when they purchase items like I did . . This is quite a bad scam deal, hoping to hear from you ..I am really thinking at this time it appears that pyramid is somehow resposible also, for this . anyway right now all I want is for not to be charged by shopping essentials .com for any bogus $11.95, respectfully elaine devroy
