This company went into my back account and took 49.95 out without my premission. This is against the law and they need to be charged with something. i never heard of this company and I never gave them authorize them to take money out of my account. I have credit cards and I've never paid to get a card. This people are crooks and out taking good peoples money. There should be a way to stop this kind of stuff.

    Once I get a warm body to talk to I plan on filing suit against this company. i just moved into a new home and my first payment is due. I paid my landlord with a check that he is going to run today and i will be assessed a finance charge as well as NSF. i put my number on the page so that if someone does decide to file i'll gladly join.

    The very things you all have posted are alarmingly similar the recent events that I have experienced. I went through an automated verification system over the phone, found a terms and conditions page online (to what loan, I still have NO clue) and was somehow approved for a loan that I never did the necessary paperwork for. When I went to the site the automated instructions told me to in order to find out the "loan amount I was approved for, " the site did not exist! Furthermore, that "terms" page clearly stated that the loan came with a week long FREE trial for two programs associated with the loan AFTER the e-paperwork had been completed. If after the seven days, I had not cancelled the subscriptions (49.95 and 19.95), THEN my account would be charged. I never found the loan. I never signed any e-documents. Nevertheless, when I went to check on my account, It was almost $120.00 negative! This all happened within a 24-hour period. I did the phone thing 10/21 and was overdrafted by opening of business the following day.

    Also, that consumerbill website is a fraud. I have emailed SEVERAL times. I have waited REPEATEDLY to "chat" with a customer service rep. No luck so far. I will probably have to close this account for fear that these people will continue to take my money for bogus products. Please warn everyone you can against this scam!

    I'm having the same problems, So far I've contacted my bank and they are working with us as well.

    This company has also sent one through my bank for 39.95 on top of the 49.95.

I tried call and sending email all i get is a automated service. no response from the email. Do anyone have any information on how to get my money back. I had to close my account to stop all the withdrawal.

    Fraud! I have always refused and never accepted any offer on the phone OR online. Yet, I was looking at my bank statement and there was a check for 49.95 posted to "Platinum Member Fortress Secured Inc". This ia an unauthorized deduction! . I want my money back- NOW!

    I was ordering stuff off the internet and this company got a hold of my account information and debited my account with a fake check with the amount of $49.95. This transaction was never authorized. We should all get together and file a claim against them.

    Don't understand what company this is that gained access to my personal information including checking info, nor do I know what web site or what this may be concerning. However 2 debits were taken without my authorization $49.95 10/16/08 and $39.95 on 10/14/08 from my checking creating a domino affect of NSF checks and fees of $36.00 each for 4 checks in my checking account. I need to have these debits credited back to my account immediately..
    If you have any information on how to rectify this I would like to know as soon as possible...I need this money returened asap!!!

    This company sent in a check for $49.95 to my account and I have no idea what the purpose of this check is. I applied for a loan on line and now without any money given to me they are taking money from my account and they even put a different bank name on my check but because they have the routing number and account number they go through.

    If you're not getting any help or response from these guys, you should post them on this site, this is for anyone who has been screwed, ripped off or felt that they had been done wrong. The name of the site is www.uradeadbeat.com, it gives you a voice to the people who will not listen. Not only does the person who you are complaining about receive an email letting them know that they have been put on the deadbeat list (as long as you provide email address) but, they will also receive a post card (as long as you provide a mailing address) notifying them too.

    okay this company is one of the affiliits of a cash advance comp. and the automaticly sign you up for there platnim members for those electrics and etc. catologes. I finaaly got through there live chat (which is a Joke) I will take at least 30 mins to finally give someone to chat with you. Goto www.consumerbill.com click on that link. And sit and wait. Then it takes approx. 1 hr. for them to complete everything. They are very slow at responding to your complaint but they told me they will send a refund in the mail in 30-40 days. We shall see! This place is a scam and they are taking our money unauthorized. Contact BBB.com and file a complaint. There is also a number to BBB in Nevada they have several complaints and names on this company. Some of the phone numbers to this company is [protected]. That number is not very helpful but it is a live person and you can give them your phone number and they MAY call you back. Please File
    A complaint this is the only way to get them shut down. Also be real careful on these online loans. YOU NEED TO READ EVERYTHING!!! THEY GIVE OUT ALL OF YOUR INFORMATION OUT TO 3RD PARTY AFFILIT. THAT MEANS OTHER COMPANYS HAVE OUR BANKING ACCOUNT INFORMATION AND THEY CAN DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT EVEN CLEAN US OUT. I GUESS THE BEST THING TO DO IS CLOSE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT IF THIS CONTINUES. GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL AND i WILL LETT YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN 2 MONTH WHEN HOPEFULLY I RECIEVE MY MONEY. ALSO I WILL LET YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THE BBB SAYS.

    They got me too! It didn't show as a pending charge, so it wasn't caught until it cleared. My bank is closing my account and giving us a new one. Still, I have had to call all the places I have auto payments set up and get the info changed!!! From what I have read on other sites, it you don't change your account or have the payments stopped at the bank somehow - this place continues to take money every 7 days for lesser amounts (this is just what I read, not personal experience). Good luck to everyone else.

    I called this company and was "put in line for the next representative" only to hold for a couple of minutes and have them tell me they were all busy and I needed to try back later and then it hung up. They also give you the option to keep your spot in line and get a call back; I did this too and have yet to receive a call back :(
