Web Savers Club / Telemarketing scam

1 United States Review updated:

Beware of any online, email or telephone offers from Government Grant Solutions and Web Savers Club . This is a complete scam that should be looked into by the federal law authorities. There was a web site about how to get government grants and I ordered a CD for federal grants which was only $2.95.

When I got my email confirming that order, suddenly I see where I was given free trials to THREE separate "pages."

Grant Membership Page - 7 Day Trial
"Membership access is $39.95 per month should you choose to continue"

Search Market Members Site - 14 Day Trial
"Membership access is $7.95 per month should you choose to continue"

Network Agenda Membership Page - 21 Day Trial
"Membership access is $9.95 per month should you choose to continue"

I immediately called the [protected] number supplied in the email and after several calls, was directed to another 1-800 number. Eventually, I was able to convince them that I did not want to have the membership trial period, that I just wanted to have it canceled.

About 3 weeks went by and I got a phone call from someone at this company and they asked if I had received the CD. I said I had and they tried to talk me into keeping the Websaveclub membership. They said to just give it a chance and check it out. If I decided I didn't want it, all I had to do was to call [protected] to cancel it.

I took one look at the site and decided it was not for me. In a week, I called that number and they said that I wasn't signed up for anything. I protested that they said that I had to cancel and if I found out that I was going to be charged for any services, I would have a fit.

Well, after getting my credit card statement, I see that I indeed was charged $34.95 by WWW WEBSAVECLUB COM LAS VEGAS NV.

I went back into my email that I had saved from the original Federal CD site and called that number. After describing the situation, I indeed was signed up to that program and I missed the 27 day trial period cutoff date, so I could not get reimbursed. I went through the roof! Never have I yelled at anyone as loud as I did on the phone. Have to give the operator credit for staying on the line.

After my tantrum, she agreed to credit my account. I had threatened to call my credit card company and expose them for what they are, a scam.

After getting cancellation reference number, I still called my credit card company and complained.

That's the problem with these scams. You sign up for something and they hit you with 3 or 4 different programs that you have to remember to cancel or you will be billed with a big hit. And even if you call the number, they have it so that they make it hard for you to cancel, or say that you don't have an account with them.

Government Grant Solutions and Web Savers Club should be exposed and brought to justice for trying to rip off people.

    I too agree whole hardly these scams need to be brought to justice I had paid for a cd 1.98 and later charged 78.75 on my debit . My bank is going to handle this if they do not refund my card. I shut my card down fast got their number and found out that it was QWEST CORP. got the number in Utah. They said 3 to 5 days to get my money back. Besides this I never got no cd. I have turned them into the BBB on line and will continue to turn them in Do not go to ez grant pro or any of the grant web sites. I told the rep at QWEST I will file on you for fraud, theft, and I will advise my bank to do so also. I am in waiting now it has been 3 days and it is still not posted. So by Monday I will file the paper on this theft if it is not back in my bank like they said. that will be another charge against them. We citizens have to help each other stop this.

    this happened to me . Everyone needs to file a complaint with the BBB of the state where the business is. The FTC and Attorney General of your state. This is the only way we can get these scams stopped

    Web Savers Club - won't refund for membership
    web savers club
    United States

    I applied for payday loan and did not realize that I had also signed up for web savers club which I feel was not classified where someone could understand what they was signing up for. I called as soon as I found out they deducted 29.98 from my checking account. I asked for a refund cause I did not understand that I was signing up for this and they informed my it was non refundable. i do not agree with this cause i feel i was tricked into this scam.. You should have to fill out a form if the company wants to deduct funds from your checking. This company tricks people to take their money and I feel they should be shut down from internet usage .
