TWX Magazine / False charges against my credit card

CA, United States Review updated:
4.15
To the "obviously thorough" people who keep writing in suggesting that people are not paying attention. Not reading the fine print, or whatever, I suggesst that you pay a little closer attention to what the complainants are saying. Chances are that you have "no" idea what the complaintants situation is. And if so many people are complaining, then there is definately a consumer problem with both parties from the selling side.

I was checking my account to be sure I had enough to subscribe to Blue Mountain e cards so I could send out cards to friends for Christmas, when I saw a charge that I have no idea how this was done. This is who charged me: TWX*ENTERTAINMENT WKLY
[protected] NY. I have not been offered any subscription. Nor have I received any magazines. I have not called anyone yet, as it is Christmas Eve. Great way to start Christmas though. At 1:32 am. No more Best Buy for me, even though I didn't buy anything there. At least not this year. And time warner? If I know it's a time warner product, unless I have NO choice, I want nothing to do with it. I hope I'm not held up to long on this. And I'll be looking for the class action suit.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!1

PEACE!!!

Some how, TWX magazine subscriptions got our credit card number and tried to use it. They had the exp. date wrong so our card company caught the attempt and stopped it. We had never heard of this obvious crooked company.

There is an unauthorized pending debit in the amount of $2.01 from my checking account that I noticed while checking my online bank statement. I called my bank and they said it was from TWX Magazine, which I know nothing about. Repeated attempts to reach a live person have been fruitless.

I have online banking alerts on my email from my bank any time a transaction is made it alerts me. Todays alert was to inform me of two pending payments to TWX*Magazine, one for $49.00 and $17.97, which was not authorized by me. I ordered an exercise bike from a company in CA about a year ago, and as a thank you for your business said they were giving me a free 1 year subscription to 4 magazines and 1 year free of Wall Street Journal. The CA company apparently gave my credit card number to TWX. This practice is illegal. Any person who has had this happen to them is urged to file a compliant to their states attorney generals office (frauds division). TX just recently shut down a company who was doing this. You can also notify the Federal Trade Commission and file a report at ftc.gov.

Unauthorized charge of $2.01 for an order I never placed. The 800 number listed of course is not in service.
I called the bank the following day and was told I have to contact the company to file a dispute.

For all those who've experienced unauthorized transactions to your bank account--you need to have your debit card #s changed ASAP so that other transactions won't be charged to your account.

this TWX magazine is a TRUE RIP OFF!!! They just set me back over $180.00 for what I DO NOT KNOW! This money in my account was for me to get my kids christmas gifts... Now I do not know what to do! HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO PEOPLE?? I have my bank involved, but I don't know what the outcome will be... I wish you all luck on getting your money refunded.

I just got hit with the same charge at my bank and I have not authorized any magazines to my credit card either! Thank you for your post as I did not know who they were much less how to find a number to TWX*ENTERTAINMENT. I just disputed this with my bank. Did you get any resolution to your unauthorized charge?
