    Your complaint is with whatever telemarkting company sold you the gas cards, not with WellnessWatchersMD. WellnessWatchersMD does not offer a gas card, nor does it call consumers.

    WellnessWatchersMD has now strictly forbidden any company to promote our service via telemarketing. It is not how we like to do business and it is not how we like companies that work with us to do business.

    You can reach us between 9 am and 9pm eastern time. Our average hold time is less than 30 seconds. If you called after that time, we were not able to assist you. You can also email us 24 hours a day at support@wellnesswatchersmd.com. Please get in touch with us so that we can rectify the situation.

    Soon after recently purchasing a book from Barton Publishing I received a rather long email from WellnessWatchersMD which said in part:
    “---- creating your Health and Fitness Profile -----“
    “Your member name is -------“
    “Your temporary password is -------“
    “Try WellnessWatchersMD completely free for 14days.”
    “If you decide WellnessWatchersMD is not for you, simply call us at ----“
    “Otherwise it's $19.95 a month with an additional first month initialization fee of $9.95, billed to your credit card.”
    I checked no boxes requesting any membership trial period from WellnessWatchersMD on my initial book purchase.
    I’ve never heard of WellnessWatchersMD before never mind requesting a membership and giving them my personal details. I contacted my bank about this unsolicited email and found them very helpful.
    Good luck, be careful, and wish I had known about https://www.complaintsboard.com before!

    Wellnesswatchersmd - Unauthorized charge
    United States

    I too found a charge on my credit card from this company. I have no idea who they are or how they got my information. After reading other complaints on this website I called the company for a refund, and the representative that answered the phone was very rude and hung up on me. Be very careful with this company. It is all a scam.

    Wellnesswatchersmd - Unauthorized charges

    Made purchase from Urban Nutrition. Clicked on "free shipping" icon. Pop-up window wanted my info in exchange for "free shipping". I closed pop-up window without giving my information. Didn't matter. Yesterday (8/27/08) my account was debited for 49.95 from WellnessWatchersMD.

    Called 800-591-6383. Man answered. He wanted to mail me some paperwork. I told him I wanted the charge reversed and paperwork was not necessary to complete that process. He forwarded me to accounting voicemail. No one ever answered.

    Called Urban Nutrition twice. First call, a man told me Wellness was an affiliate. Gave me a direct line to call 609-651-4936. Reached personal voicemail for a Janine Kinect (sp?). Second call, a man tried to give me same numbers. When I told him they were not good, he said he would transfer me to Michelle. Then left me on permanent hold.

    Immediately went to google these two companies. Found multiple sites indicating the nature of this scam. Contacted my bank. Canceled my debit card. Challenged the charge on my account. Their debit card fraud department will credit funds and investigate.

    Has anybody had any luck in canceling this subscription? I am still on the 14 day trial and cannot afford to have them charge me. I did not even want the service. I didn't fill out the Profile or anything but an afraid that I'll be charged. Any help is appreciated. Thank You, Christy

    I ordered a report from Barton Publishing and then found a charge on my credit card for WellnessWatchersMD for a 29.95 monthly membership. I didn't order anything from them. After getting my credit card bill I went back through my emais and found one from them that I thought was spam and hadn't read. It said that I had 14 days to cancel otherwise I would be billed for $29.95. I went to the website to cancel.

    "WELLNESSwatcherMD are SCAMERS" ! They are the ### of the earth. They are a dual in scam with Joe Barton Publishing, in not simply they same. They hide charges as "GIFTS". Truly fraudulent companies.

    I had ordered Orexis (Male enhancement pills) which I received on time after my prompt payment through my credit card. On the same month I received my credit card statement showing an unauthorized charge made by a company named "wellnesswatchersMD" which I never heard of before. I called my credit card company and placed a dispute on this charge of $ 59 (also a charge of $ 1 totalling $ 60). My credit card company removed both charges and held till the charge resolved. 2 months gone by and the charge reappeared on my credit card statement. This time I called "wellness WatchersMD" to find what the charge is about. they told me when I bought Orexis I had agreed to take membership with them which is totally untrue and I demanded a refund. They agreed to send me a form and to fill it out and mail back to them. At present I am in the process of sending the form to them and waitingand hoping to see my refund. So, people, stay away from Orexis and this scamming company called as "WellnessWatchersMD"!!!

    Wellnesswatchersmd - unauthorized credit card charges

    I purchased online blood pressure report from Barton Publishing. Later discovered 2 charges totaling 59.90 for a membership I never agreed to from wellnesswatchers. I never gave any cc info or personal info to them, yet they must have used the info from Barton to complete charges on me. I called and was sent a form to fill out. We will see if a refund happens. I also notified my Credit card co. If I would have done this to someone, I would be in jail now. How do they seem to get away with it? How many others have been ripped off and not known?

    I placed an order for Hoodia Bites in December. One week later, there was a charge to my account for $1.83. I called WWMD and was told that I was not in their "system" and that they can't do anything about it because they coudn't find my information. I called my bank and filed a fraud claim, the charge was reversed. Today I found a charge for $59 and another one for $1.77. I called my bank AGAIN and filed another fraud claim. I have also closed that account so that they can not steal anymore money from me.

    I NEVER went to their website prior to them charging my card and then only to get their phone number. I NEVER bought anything from them. I NEVER authorized them to charge anything to my account.

    They are FRAUDS and need to be stopped!
