Tlg*great Fun / unauthorized charges

When purchasing tickets on the website Priceline, there was a place to check if I wanted $10 in reward for my purchase. I did this, and soon afterward received a membership packet from this scam company. Was unable to reach them because their phone was continually busy. I wrote to them demanding they cancel any membership, and sent a copy to their corporate HQ. Despite this, I was charged $11.99 on my card the following month. Wrote again and called them --- reached someone this time. They said they would reverse the charge and end membership, still waiting at this point. Have written Priceline urging them to end this practice. Really bad business. Teaches me to watch my card charges carefully.
The company office is in Nashville, TN, but the corporate HQ (Trilegiant Corp) is in CT.

    Okay I just realized that I have been getting charged $11.99 each month for god only knows how long. I called my credit card company today and said to dispute it I would have to call the company and of course it is the weekend and they are closed. I think I have been getting charged this since April or May because the last time I used this credit card is when I purchased Airline tickets and a rental car from I checked great fun's website and they are partners with Budget rental car company which is who I got my car through but I slightly remember seeing somehting about great fun on Pricelines website. After getting off the phone with the credit card company I realized that I think I have been receiving mail from this crappy company and found it. I have a check from the company for $10.00 but if I were to cash it, it would activate some kind of "savings plan". Since I know I have not cashed any of these clearly junk mail checks, why oh why am I getting charged. I am peeved! Lets just say someone at that stupid company is going to have their A$$ handed to them first thing Monday morning.

    I clicked on an offer to save money on my next plane airfare, after I had just purchased tickets. The next thing I know, I belong to this club. I cancelled the membership withing the 90 day trial. The problem is I do not have the confirmation # for the cancellation that I was given. I was told that I would not be charged, because I cancelled within the 90 days. I just recently noticed that I have been charged 11.99 per month for 6 months. I called again and do not have a lot of confidence that they will do what they say. What can be done about these scams? I can see that a lot of other people have been taken by this company too.

    I discovered that "TLG*Great Fun Inc. has been charging $12.99 per month to may credit card since October 2008. They claim it was part of a purchase from "Current Catalog". Current knows nothing about it. I spent an hour on the telephone with their "customer service" (TLG's) trying to get the money refunded. After speaking to a customer service rep., their supervisor and that persons supervisor, I was transfered to "The Office of the President" for TLG*Great Fun. There I was instructed to leave a voice mail and that my call would be returned within 48 hours...Still waiting. I've filed a complaint with the Atty. General's office in PA. The Atty. General (Tom Corbett) is running for Gov. and is looking for ways to advance his cause. Maybe it will do some good. The "customer service reps and supervisors all have a heavy accent. I believe the department is located in India or somewhere in the far east. Their hard to understand and just keep parroting the same information. Watch out. Makes me skeptical to order anything from anyone online.
