scam artists

I signed up for the "free stuff" but all I get are dozens and dozens of daily spam in my box, i.e. porn, Russian brides, Oriental brides, etc. Fortunately, I did NOT give them my bank information. The Feds should look into this before they skip the country. I shop online only from reputed companies like Target and VONS (Safeway) and delete my bank information after the purchase. There is no such thing as free stuff in this world.

Unauthorized charged on my credit card account

My credit was charged for $34.95 every 19th or 20th of the month. Please be advised that I never authorized your Company to charged the mentioned amount but I found out that since last year you continuously charging the amount with out my permission. I will earnestly request your Company to refrain from charging or using my credit card and refund the charges you already charged to my credit card since last October 2010, otherwise I will file damages against this theft.

Hoping for your immediate actions.

Credit Card Fraud

This company is affiliated with other online companies and is charging
your credit card illegally. It seems to be 19.95/month.

I noticed it today for the first time on my CC electronic statment,
it appears to blend in with other stuff you might have on your
credit card and doesn't stand out.

Mine has had changing dates ranging from the 18, 19, 15 of the month.

When I called the compnay to inquire I was hung upon a couple of times.
Then the compnay switched me to some other people and when I stated
I didn't authorize this they said yes I did.

I had to point out these were fraudulent charges and a web search
confirmed this is an ongoing problem.

NOTE: DLMax or DealMax is affiliated with over 70 other companites.

unauthorized charge / fraud

I NEVER SIGNED UP FOR THIS!!!
tHEY HAVE MY CHECKING ACCOUNT INFORMATION AND HAVE BEEN TAKING $19.95 FROM MY ACCOUNT ONCE A MONTH FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS..

MY ACCOUNT IS NOW OVER-DRAWN.

THIS IS TOTAL BULL

    NOTHING'S FREE $ Feb 02, 2010

    This is a TOTAL Rip OFF
    First they used a BOGUS Best Buy Logo
    to Intiate best buy card holders to sign up for a Free $1000
    Gift card at a $1.00 particapation fee
    WALMART IS ALSO USED

    Then in very small well hidden fine print tucked deep away in their
    privacy policy it states by accepting these terms you will allow SCAM MAX To charge $29.95
    monthly from your bank account to become a particapaiting member

    I was not even sent a brochure, membership card or any email confirming I had unknowingly accepted
    these charges till i inquired 6 months later and had my Bank disputE the charges
    on a service I NEVER USED OR KNEW I WAS A MEMBER OF ?

    This is nothing but a bunch of very lucrative lawyers who have set up a legal way to fraudently extract money from your bank account without ANY Notification that it was done

    NEVER ACCEPT A FREE GIFT CARD FROM ANY INTERNET SITE
    YOU'LL PAY FOR IT $$

    How these scams work:

    Consumers either receive a spam e-mail or come across a web advertisement or web site offering a Walmart or other well known gift card worth a large amount of money.
    The consumer is taken to a website that is has branding that makes it appear to be a legitimate merchant (ex: Walmart), there the consumer will be asked to enter an email address, and other personal contact information; including address and phone number. The privacy policy on the site will typically indicate that this information will be sold to other businesses for their own purposes, such as telemarketing and junk mail.
    Once this information is entered the consumers may be asked to take part in a series of surveys.
    Once the surveys are complete (if they were offered at all), the consumer is given a number of webpages where they have to "participate" in a certain amount of "sponsor offers." The number of offers may vary, but they will end up costing the consumer a great deal of money in fees, subscriptions, and products. In addition, at the end of the process there is no guarantee that the consumer will even receive the branded gift card.

    I was charged the same $19.95 for a membership I did not ask for. It was somethihg that I order that I only had to pay the SH, which was $4.95. Then you get an offer for a choice of 4 different gift cards. That's how they get your card# from the 4.95 you pay. The number was on my bank statement so I called them on 6/3/09 and they said it would be credited in 2-3 business days. I called them again this morning and of course another person tells me the same thing.

    Note: It sounds automated, but if you enter you phone number the option 1 to cancel you can then hit # to speak with someone. Hope this helps

Uauthorized Debit Card Charge

I noticed an unauthorized debit charge on my bank statement to some company called Dealmax. I contacted my bank and informed them that I had no idea who they were. I tried to call Dealmax but could not get through without a customer number. Their web site does not work. I canceled my debit card. I later found a way to get a call through by hitting the number 1 several times and then the pound sign. When I talked to a CS rep, I was told that I had authorized Dealmax to take $19.95 a month from my debit card. This is how it works: I ordered some vitamins from a company called Vitacost. After the order, the good folks at Vitacost sent me an on-line coupon for $20.00 off my next order. I clicked on the coupon to accept. In doing so I authorized Dealmax to charge my account each month. Nice scam. I'll never order from Vitacost again.

unable to reach company

This is a scam. I had ordered some cosmetics from a different website and when I had completed that order, I got the comeon..."which do you want as your reward for ordering, a Walmart 50 gift card, etc."
I was curious, so I clicked on Walmart gift card and wasn't interested in the "entertainment/mdse from major retail chains" that was being hawked. However, clicking on "no thanks" just brought me back to the top of the page. The e-mail address that I used for my original order was listed, and according to the fine print gave my permission to charge my credit card with $19.00 per month. SCAM!!! The number [protected] could not be reached except through the [protected] that is an automated directory where you have to have the city and state or you get nothing. AT&T was absolutely no help; in fact the supervisor??? I spoke to was rude and snotty and cut me off without any help. I belong to LifeLock so I'll see what they can do about this scam.

credit card scam

Deal max was authorized to take one dollar out of my credit card account, they took several. I had to cancel my credit card and get a new card. They are unethical in their practices and lie about what they are actually taking out of your account. One dollar does not mean three or four dollars. So I was not sure if they were going to continue to dollar me until I had no money so I cancelled my credit card, I think that's the only option I had. Anita

Scam and I got hit

I just heard from my credit union and I had a charge from DealMax which I never authorized. The charge was for 29.95 plus 1.00 authorization charge. Interestingly, I haven't contact any such company or approved any charges from my card. The only thing I have done recently is hunt for a part-time at home work program. I went to several website for rebate processors but I didn't give any information regarding my debit card. Now I get to go sign papers to stop the charge and to get a new card. Great! I live with my debit card since most places won't take a check without a blood test!

unauthorized charges

i don't remember authorizing charges to my bank account, which keep accuring, and have caused overdraft fees as well!

    I was charged twice on 10-09-08 for 1.00 to my cc and 29.95 as well when I called and spoke with someone I told them then that I wanted it cancelled and credited back to my cc and then on 10-10-08 I was taken for another 2.00 or 3.00 from my cc and the 29.95 went through on 10-10-08 from my cc. Now once again I want this credited back to my cc ASAP if not credited back I will be filing fraud charges so I should have 33.95 back on my cc soon I hope and I cancelled this on 10-09-08. And on the 10-10-08 they still took it out. So with all do respect pleased credit this back to my cc.

    Thank-You

    I too have recently found unauthorized charges on my account and jave not recieved promised gift card from dealmax, nor it's affiliates... I am attempting to resolve these matters, but have yet to speak to a representative. I keep getting "yanked" around by their automated system, which seems to be part of their ploy. My next recourse is to notify the US Federal Trade Commission and my congressman.

    DealMax just hit my account in the last 24 hours. I received a call from my credit union and they had charged to my account. Now I have to go to the branch sign papers and get a new card and pin. I can only think of two things on the web that I inquired about and now they have managed to get to my account. I didn't give the companies any of my card information; however, I did purchase from an online auction last night. Off I go to the credit union and several days without a debit card. What a SCAM!

    Yeah. I think they should be a bit more accessible if they're gonna be tricking people out of their money. Otherwise, just be an honest business. Thanks for the phone number by the way.

    Thank you so much for giving a number to call. I like you have no idea what I'm paying for! I see a charge for 19.95 which caused my account to overdraft. For the last few days I had been trying to figure out who this company was and how to get hold of them. FINALLY I called and found out that not only had they taken out the 19.95, but took out the same amount each month for the last 3 months, (who knows how I missed that!!!). I told them I wanted my money back, they tried to tell me no, I flipped out. They said their gonna refund the 60.00 they took from me, after I told them that I went online and there was tons of people they did this same thing to. I got a reference number and an account number and ladies name I talked to, but I still don't know what I was being charged for, she wouldn't tell me and I still do not know how they got the info. Funny thing is, I lost my card 2 months ago and had to get a new one, so they not only had my old CC number, but somehow they ended up with my new number as well.!!! This is very scarey! I guess I'll see if they actually give me my money back. too bad they can't reimburse me for the overdraft charges. I'm gonna talk to my bank about that.

Scam charges!

My personal information was obtained including my bank account information. Several charges were made by dealmax.com and dealpass.com. Also several other similar companies to the dealmax.com/dealpass.com accepted unauthorized memberships in my name and to my bank account, all other companies were helpful in canceling all memberships and refunding the charges to my account. For some odd reason this dealmax.com/dealpass.com can not be contacted except for automated voice recordings. The bank and I will take whatever action to resolve this issue!!

    I am having the same problem. I never authorized Dealmax to set up a monthly transaction fee which they have been taking out for over two years. I never noticed because I thought it was our X-Box monthly fee which I did authorize. Called the bank and going after them to get my money back...over $800!!!

The party is over where I am concerned, you will not charge another $19.95 to my card DEALMAX!!! signed ANGRY WOMAN.
