Wc *value Plus - V / charged my account; never signed up for anything from them

I noticed an unfamiliar charge of $19.95 to my bank account for "WC *VALUE PLUS-V [protected] MN ". I called the number and was told that I was calling membership services and that all calls would be recorded for quality assurance purposes. As I was waiting to talk to a representative, a recorded voice told me that if I wanted to cancel, I could go to their website (https://www.programstop.com/index.html). Just as I got the website, a representative came on the phone. At first she couldn't find my information, but then she said she canceled my account. I had to ask her to refund the last charge, but she wasn't authorized to refund any other past charges. She couldn't tell me how I got signed up for their services--apparently they're a consumer service program that gives discounts and coupons, but she couldn't tell me how I signed up for this "service". Also, I've never received any discounts or coupons because of this. I smell scam. At least it wasn't hard to cancel. We'll see if that refund comes through.

Unauthorized withdrawal from checking account. I was told by them that it is because an online survey was filled out. They say they will send me a refund form. I'll believe it when i see it.

I found a charge for $19.95 on my account. I called the 800 number and explained that I had not authorized this charge. The person said she would cancel it. This is 3 weeks later and I still do not have a refund. I have never heard of this company. I need that money credited to my account. When I now call the 800 number it directed me to this website claiming it's their website.

unauthorized charge of $ 16.95 in my credit card, transaction was
done on july 14 of 2008 and as far as remember my last purchase
that i had w/ my credit card was on july 12 '08 and this is clearly
full of ### scam. how come the authorities are not tracking this
company. I called them and someone really answered me, i ask them how and why they charged me w/o my authorization and they can't really detailed they're answers to all my questions, you will know if the person is not telling the truth, they think before
they answer you.

I noticed i have been charged $16.95 without my consent a handful of times. I shop online on a regular and thought the charges were that of something i may have purchased, but as i saw the charges repeat each month around the same time i knew i was had to act. I googled the name that appeared on my card and sure enough found this site that had other people with the exact same experiance. I immediately called the bank and they cancelled my card and are sending me documents for disputing the charges. I am furious!! Hope it will all work out and i get my money back. I work hard for my momey as i am sure you all do too!!

I noticed a charge of $16.95 to my account from this B.S. Company whoever they are. I called the
800-475-1942 number and couldn't get a straight answer from the lying woman there on how they got my information and what this charge is for other than she said for some kind of B.S. membership. I threatened her with a lawsuit if they didn't refund my money and lose my information. All I can do now is wait a few days to see if this is refunded and if not I think a whole lot of us should file a Lawsuit against these A- -holes !

I saw this charge, which I ABSOLUTELY never authorized, never requested. When I called the 800 number, the girl said she was happy "an ancillary company offered me a discount or service at a discount and this was the charge for that". To which I can only respond that she is reciting a polished script designed to befuddle the majority of "customers". In other words, I am confident that they figure that after hearing this BS, most of us will say..."Oh thanks!"

My charge was for 14.99 and I notice in other complaints that there are different charges. They are getting as much as they can out of this scam.

PLEASE BUST them!

It could have been an internet retailer offering money off your current order - just complete the survey and you are signed up.
It could have been very small print with a prechecked check box that you missed as you cashed out.

Although not completing the survey or unchecking that box is no guarantee that you WILL NOT BE signed up anyway

It could be your Credit card company too.

No one wants these worthless membership programs so they work with internet retailers and credit card companies to sign you up without your consent. They hope you do not notice.

You charged $16.95 on my credit card and I didn't authorize you to do it. I didn't authorize you to do this and I want you to have it removed immediately or I will turn this fraudulant charge over to the Kansas attorney generals office.

Never ordered anything from this company nor heard of them. Found the charge 4 days after it went onto my account and didn't recognize it. Thought I may have purchased something for my sister's wedding which had just passed. Decided to google the name and found out about all these scams from you nice people. Immediately called the bank and made my Visa card hot and cancelled it. The bank advised me not to try to call them for my money back but to come in and fill out an affidavit about the incident and said they would reimburse me and go after them themselves. I encourage everyone to do this and to then contact the BBB and the local authorities to try to get these people caught and put away for stealing and fraud.

This company placed a charge on my Capital VISA card for $16.00. I did not authorize or sign for this charge. When I called they never did tell me what their company was all about. They said the charge would be removed but that hasen't happened as yet.

I have had a charge of 19.95 taken out twice this week. I was also charged an overdraft fee of 29.00. I lost my job in July so my money is on an extreme budget. This is approximately 70.00 in one week. My unemployment is 300.00 a week. This is devastating to me. I know 70.00 isn't a big amount but when it is almost 1/3 of your weeks income it is. I also called and have no clue how i ended up in this mess. I would like anyone who is considering filling a lawsuit against this company to please let me in.
