WelwatchMD / WelwatchMD and Barton Publishing

1 United States Review updated:

Beware of ordering from Barton Publishing! I ordered the UTI 12 hour remedy (which did NOT work - I am now on antibiotics) and now have a charge pending on my account from WelwatchMD which I've never heard of nor have I ordered anything from them. From research it seems that others received fraudulent charges from WelwatchMD after ordering from Barton Publishing. I also have been trying to contact Barton Publishing to get a refund as per their 100% money back guarantee. So far I've had no response to my e-mails and calling their support center gets a recording telling you to send an e-mail. I've spoken with my bank who said they can't dispute a charge that is pending until it actually goes through the account, but they will block them if they actually charge me. Right now it's only $1.83 or something, but from what I've read about others experiences, once they get one through then they continue to make charges of $59+. I sent an e-mail to as suggested by one victim, and stated that if I expect a response within 24 hours or I will pursue this further with other avenues. I told Barton the same thing about getting my refund and stopping these WelwatchersMD charges noting that they are linked to this fraud. I should have known it was a scam.

    I was charged by WELWATCHMD80059800 $ 29.95 and do not know what this charge is for - They need to put a phone number to be able to reach these people so that we may find out what are we being charged for and that we may cancel this charge.

    Update: Apparently it was from a free trial add-on when I ordered the UTI system from Barton Publishing. I called them at 1-800-591-6383 and the man was very nice, canceled the trial and gave me a cancellation number. Still no response from Barton about my refund.

    Welwatchmd charged me $59.00 for I don't know what. I keep records of everything I order on line and I don't order anything from anyone that doesn't have contact information.
    Who are these people and where are they. I'm reporting fraud to my bank Monday.
    Where else can we file a complaint?

    WelwatchMD, which I never did any type of business with has charged my account $29.95 on 1/20/09 and $1.85 on 1/6/09. The mosre recent charge has caused an overdraft fee on my account of $35.00. I live on disability. My account balance is now -$251.42! I do not know anyone who has the money to help me. This is a disaster for me. Please do SOMETHING about these people! PLEASE!!!

    WelwatchMD - Unsolicited Charges to Charge Card
    United States

    Received a call from my credit card company questioning recent charges and discovered that I had been charged $29.95 by this company which I had never heard of before. When I put the name in my webbrowser I realized that many other people had similar experiences. My credit card carrier removed the charges and cancelled my credit card.

    WelwatchMD - Unauthorised charge

    Today i received a notification of a charge of $29.95 by WelwatchMD866-327-6982 Suite 501 St James.
    I do not know these people or company and have never done anything with them.

    Everyone seems to be making the same complaints and it appears no one is doing anything about it.
    Can something be done? This is the last thing we need, not at a time like this.

    IMMEDIATELY call your bank if is is a debit or credit card company if it is a charge card. Have them issue you a new debit card or charge card to stop them from taking money fromyour account. Your bank will usually refund 60 days of fraudulent charges. You will have to initiate a charge back complaint if it i a charge card.
    It happened to me and I am torked off. But, at least they can't get anymore money.

    WelwatchMD - money debited from my account without permission
    United Kingdom

    I ordered a report from Barton Publishing at the end of February '09. The cost was correctly deducted from my account; but on 2nd March'09 £1.32 was taken out of my account and on 17th March'09 £22.08 was also deducted by WELWATCHMD.

    Who are these people? I have never ordered anything from them.

    I was astounded to see so many complaints about this ?company.

    Here is the phone number for wellness watch - (888) 461-4889.
    They told me I signed up for a monthly service when I bought a teeth whitening product, and that their terms were clearly spelled out when I ordered the product. I have no recollection of selecting anything of this sort, and this certainly does appear to be a scam.

    The company says they will discontinue the service, but I am opting for a new debit card anyway.

    I too discovered this charge to a card I only use at the ATM machine; I purchased nothing. AND there was a .60 cent charge for 'foreign transaction fee'. It showed up as an entry on my bank statement.

    i ordered a product over the phone that i saw on tv. i knew from previous transactions that companies try to get you to sign up for other services. so with me being on guard, i made sure i answered no to all of them and i was sure i was only purchasing the product i was calling about. months later i started getting charges on my checking account for services that i never herd of. With my tight budget i started to get overdraft charges from my bank. i think these guys are crooks, and should be stopped. would i have a case against them, or are they untouchable? i have also read many of the same complaints on the Internet about the companies i am talking about. wellwatchmd and privacymatters were the two that stole money from me.
