scam!

Checked my cc statement and saw a charge for 12.99 from this company. When I called they said I had signed up for this service through Orbitz. However, I can't recall signing up for anything through this company. They said my money would be refunded.

Shady people and a shady business.

    After checking my statement tonight, found $11.99 charge from MERCHANT PURCHASE TLG*GREATFN. I called my bank and was given the phone number for TLG (800-242-7771). After repeatedly saying "Cancel my account", I was finally given a canellation number and told to expect a refund in the next 1-2 billing cycles.

    The agent told me this account was created after making a purchase from ShoeBuy.com. It seems they have a little checkbox on checkout asking if you want more deals and offers. The box is checked by default, so you'll be charged no matter what!

    i've been getting charged $9 month for 3 years!!! it was called reservation rewards and i thought i was paying a fee for hotel bookings overseas, which i do all the time online.
    come to find out it was a $20 rebate from Etronics online electronics store...and that traced back to reservation rewards to greatfunsite.com.
    total scam!!! fortunately, united mileage plus chase card had the answer and cancelled and refunded me over $300.

charged my account illegally!

I ordered tickets online in august and for the past few months this company has been charging my credit card 12.99$. This is a scam. They said that to et the discount on airline tickets i joined this club then never received any paperwork on it. It is supposed to be giving you discounts on food and gas i never received anything from them except several charges to my account.

unauthorized charge!

I found a 149.99 charge on credit card. First of all how did they get my Credit Card Number? When you call they tell you to get your membership number off of your membership packet. I never received a packet! Secondly they told me I cashed a 9.95 dollar check which authorized the membership, which was a lie.

They are a scam and if you are not watching your credit card statements they are going to burn you. They did deactivate the membership and will refund my C.C. I had the same issue with a company called AutoAdvantage and I'm sure they are the same. Time to go to my states attorney general.

unauthorized charges!

I was charged 9.95 for 8 months before I discovered the charge. I blame my self for negligence in not stopping the charges sooner but I did not give them permission to charge my card. I made an order with Avon and as is this case, did the payment online with my credit card. At the end of the order Avon asked if you wanted information from certain companies, I responded that I would like to receive coupons. Not knowing that I would have to pay 9.95 a month. I never received anything for that money. If I had I might have realized I might be getting a charge on my cc. I somehow overlooked this charge for 6 months and the last month I was charged twice for the end of the month and begging of the next month. That is when it stuck out like a sore thumb and I realized that I was being scammed. They did refund the last month and this month I just received a second refund of 9.95. That will not continue. They are keeping the rest of my money. $60.00!!! This is a lesson learned. Also I will not be shopping Avon, who gave them my credit card number.

    All,

    Thanks for your comments. They gave me information I needed to press my bank regarding the charge. I called Tlggreatfn and inquired as to the charges. As it turns out, I recieved a 15% off discount from a trip I booked thru ORBITZ , if I signed up for a subscription for Tlggreatfn, http://www.greatfunonline.com It is an entertainment company which specializes in dining, enternainment, travel, etc).

    I remember signing up for the service with the intent of cancelling it when I moved to my new home in another state. To make a long story short, they hook you into purchasing the service with the hopes of you forgetting to cancell it. And I fell for it, hook-line-and sinker. I cannot believe I was so careless to allow these charges to accumulate for so long.

scam and fraud!

Please check out www.cleverosity.com for information on Trilegiant, a Connecticut-based company that offers online shopping services and discounts to people who purchase memberships (and charges to many who DID NOT purchase memberships). I was "automatically" signed up when I reserved a motel room. I have been charged $11.99 a month by TLG***TRVLADV and by TLG**SHOPPERSADV even though I never signed up for them. I did a search online and found that this company, TRILEGIANT, has had numerous lawsuits and complaints against them for the very same thing. They operate under hundreds of names and when you do complain to your bank, your bank may offer you "ID Protection" to prevent this type of fraud - BEWARE!!! Trilegiant also operates those services and will charge you monthly to "protect yourself" against them! Shades of the mafia? Please immediately complain to the FTC, your Attorney General and everyone you know to do the same! All information is available at www.cleverosity.com. Also there are lawyer available who are currently collecting information for ANOTHER class action lawsuit against TRILEGIANT. Please check your bank statements and if your are a victim, do complain anywhere and everywhere to get this company out of business!

    I signed up for their service when booking a hotel room. When I canceled (or so I thought I was canceling), I was given the run around, but by remaining assertive I got a cancellation code and then received an e-mail stating they had canceled the membership per my request. Over the holidays I had more transactions than normal, but I noticed today they never stopped charging me. Companies that allow this fraudulent company to piggyback off of their customers need to lose business also. It was DayInn.com where I joined.

    I figured this one out when i received my second $5 check for money back from my HSBC marstercard. On the back it says in fine print that if i deposot it I will be agreeing to a travel membership and be charged $59.99. I expected more from HSBC than mail fraud. After calling the number for Travelers Advantage they only agreed to charging back the fee when threatened with an immediate BBB complaint. HSBC says they aren't associated and they are a third party, but it was sent on their letterhead in their envelope. Completly misleading scam marketing. The charge put me over the limit and they have refused to credit back the fee until traveler's credits their part back. Travel's said I should see it in 1-2 billing cycles. Funny it takes 2 days tops for a credit to clear when issued. I beleive the only way to stop this sort of fruad is to complain to your local www.BBB.org I might expect it from junk mail, but not from your credit card company.

    My fiance' was also ripped off by this bogus scam. When he called HSBC to ask if they were affiliated with these people...the rep hung up on him. I feel that card holders should stick together and sue the hell out of them. That is completely taking advantage of hard working people. The checks that were mailed to him were called "direct rewards", but like the last person said...it had HSBC's letter head and was mailed to him in their envelopes. These people are working together to scam innocent people. I think it's a crying shame!!!

    I see these posts were in 2008. Well, the scam continues. Just got an HSBC statement and it has two charges (same day), each for $109.99. One from "TRVL ADV" and one from
    "Just ForMe". Had never heard of either before these charges. Called and was told that chargebacks would be made. New card being issued to eliminate use of the number again.

survey scam!

Dec. 27, 2007 - Received a phone call from the Fraud Debit Card Dept. of my Bank telling me that a charge of $1.00 to my checking debit account. I got the information from my bank to call these rip off scam pigs. Dealing with TLG Great Fun was everything BUT a delight. To make a long story short. I yelled, they yelled, and finally I got my way and talked to CSR Supervisor in the United States. After threatening to have my lawyer do a full investigation of this company, she said that she would refund me the $1.00 amount back to my account and cancel my so -called membership that I never signed up for. The same day I went to my bank to freeze my debit card # and have them order me a new one. I was told by my bank, that normally you would not see a charge like this on your bank statement. Thank God for Washington Mutual catching that charge on my account because I would have known I was charged.

Advice: Check out this link to see for yourself how many other companies the are affiliated with TLG Great Fun. http://greatfunonline.com/Content.aspx?SID=AC21B3ECAC354232610216d7370f092d&content=customerCenter%2fabout. WHEN MAKING PURCHASES ONLINE, PLEASE BECAREFUL! NEVER EVER CLICK ON ANY POP UP'S THAT ASK YOU TO TAKE A SURVEY FOR A PRIZE, A DISCOUNT ON TRAVEL, PRODUCTS ETC... WHEN YOU BUY ONLINE FROM A ONLINE COMPANY WHICH HAS THESE POP'S AND AFTER PURCHASING YOUR PRODUCT, THEY STEAL YOUR PERSONAL BILLING INFORMATION!! AND THEN THEY STEAL FROM YOU!

I HOPE NO ONE ELSE WILL FALL INTO THIS TRAP.

    I called Wells Fargo and they were very helpful in getting the fraudulent charges reversed. After gathering the information on the monthly charges, the operator initiated a conference call with TLG. Initially, TLG agreed to reverse 2 of the 4 months of fraudulent charges, with the rest available by sending in a fax. The Wells Fargo operator asked to speak with a supervisor, and this person then agreed to reverse the remaining 2 months.

    I will never use Orbitz again. Goodbye, Orbitz!

    Additionally, I will find out which other companies are teaming with TLG and will boycott them as well.

    Shame on TLG!

    @notastupidone

    You're either a dummy or you're working for one of these crooked companies. Most people who get these charges have no idea how the charges came about. Many times, they never signed or clicked anything. The companies charging stuff as TLG are simply criminals. There has already been a case filed in California and the companies agreed to an injunction however they are again violating it.

    If you have gotten such a charge and can't easily cancel it, I suggest cancelling the card and any associated accounts. Don't get another card or account with the bank because they will just reinstate the charge. Go to a different one.

    Chase seems to be the worse offender and the subject of the most complaints. They are also the subject of the California actions.

    The link for the injunction against parent company Trilegiant is: http://tinyurl.com/mlcesj

    I really hate it when people make excuses or blame the victims instead of the ### gutter garbage people who perpetrate the scams, cheat and deceive, and waste everyone's time. If my current problem with Chase and these crooks isn't resolved, I am going immediately to the media, especially the Turko Files, and I will consult a lawyer about filing a case. I am tired of ripoffs like this. That's all banks like Chase need is more bad publicity.

I am being charged on my credit card-unsolicitated and have called twice to have my name off the list.

I have contacted these companies at two different time and was rassured I would not be billed for something I have not solicitated. I received my credit card bill and it is still deducting, one dollar and 9.99 on my current statement.

    Contact your credit card company. State that you are disputing the charges on your bill & you will need to do it within 30-60 days. Your credit card company will do an investigation concerning the account. If you stopped service then they should stop charging & your credit card company could credit you the amount.

While completing an order on drugstore.com i was sent to this greatfunsite.com not realizing it. It was for...

unauthorized charges!

This company and Great Fun charged my account without my permission. Scammers. They gave me 4 months but would not give me all my money back unless I submitted a request in writing. I have done that so we will see what I get.

illegal charges

TLG great fun charged my debit card$12.99. I did not authorize this transaction. When I called them they gave me someone elses name and address with my "account number". I had to tell her several times that this was not me and I did not authorize this. She said she would refund my money, but still tried to sell me other services. I had to hang up on her because she would not take no for an answer. Make sure you check your statements often! I was also out of state when I found it so I was away from home and had no way to get money because I had to cancel my debit card.

unauthorized billing!

I was billed @ $100.00 on my credit card. The lady said that I cashed some kind of check from them. I told her it was hard to cash a shredded check. After she said she would credit my account she ask if it was ok to keep my account open! I spoke to the supervisor and told her that I would be filing a complaint with the BBB on Wed.

    I contacted them, and they would give credit of $25.98 (last two months). I understand that you can only get credit for the last two months. Watch your statements for unknown charges or you may not get all your money back.

    They told me I would see the credit on my charge card bill in two weeks. I hope this is true...

So I called my bank and they gave me the TLG Phone No. They said they are goin to refund and will stop charging me that amount. Let's see coz until now i receive NO refund yet.

unauthorized charge of my credit card

Great Fun, an entity I never heard of before, charged my creditcard with $12.99. I called [protected] to protest the charge. The person whom I talked to promised that he would remove the charge and gave me a confirmation number of my complaint: W53344808030. That was a lie: The charge with a different date appeared on the next statement. The credit care co. would not stop payment after we reported the fraud. The only thing the card company can do to change our account number. And the scam artists keep my money and are having Great Fun as their name promised. Is there no remedy against the dastardly acts of these crooks?

    They just got me for $59.99. When I called, they told me that I had cashed a check that had been enclosed in my Chase credit card statement. This check was my agreement to enroll. Well, I did no such thing. They said they would remove the charge and send me a copy of the check that I supposedly cashed. I'll let you know if it ever arrives. In the meantime, I canceled my Chase credit card account. I asked the lady that I talked to at TLG, Rhonda, if she had ever Googled her company. She says that she is aware of all the bad press and that it's the fault of all the companies that sell the TLG services, not TLG itself. Whoooeeee, the smell of baloney is very strong.

    My granddaughter had a $119.99 charge on her acccount. When I called they said she had sent in a $10.00 rebate form for Great Fun and she would be a member unless she cancelled within 30days. This was a downright lie. She never sent anything in. She never noticed this on her account since she is an out of town college student and the statements are sent diretly to my home. I called them because they had sent a post card saying her memberhip would be renewed unless she called to cancel by 12/08/08. I called and they gave me a cancellation number. I asked to speak to a supervisor who identified herself as "DEE DEE" and said she would reimburse the account in about ten to fifteen days. If this credit does not come through I will contact the state attorney general's office to file a report.

stealing from my checking account!

I have been charged $9.99 for at least 13 months and never realized what it was. Called the company, TLG...

unauthorizes charge of $11.99

I purchased a $15 flash storage item from Buy.com and in their page they offered a FREE TLG everday item My credit card was billed for $11.99 for this so called FREE item. These people should be prosecuted!

    Luckily you know what you did. I don't even know what the hell did I sign up for, I can assure I've never seen tlg everyday before... but they still charge me. What a jerk. After a research about this company I didn't bother to call them, let me CC company handle this.

    I just recently was charged $119.99 for this "apparent" service that I never signed up for. I actually called them 3 times to cancel my "membership" they stated that I had with them and still couldn't get a cancellation code! Luckily on the 4th attempt when being a disgruntled "Customer" I was able to get this code and a full refund.

    For everyone's Special Attention (SA) their number is 1-800-417-6232. You should have to get a code that starts with R.

    This company is ###ic and will continiously attempt to sell you something when trying to attempt to cancel! I hate ###ed people and companies that want to take advantage. Honestly, I think the BBB should wipe them off the planet!

I am about to report them to the better business bureau

This company has charged me for 10 months $9.99 on my credit card and I had no idea who was charging me or what the charges were for. My credit card company told me to call them and tell them to cancel immediately and that I did not authorize monthly payment. I did, and they said I signed up for their "service" which sounds like "discounts" on what I'm still not sure. They said I authorized this when I placed an Avon order. I said I would never have done so and I wanted reimbursement to my credit card for the 10 months they charged me. They said I had to fax their company (which I did a month ago) and still have not had $100 worth of payments reimbursed. What a scam. I am about to report them to the Better Business Bureau.

    This company charge my credit card for 119.99 and I don't even know who they are. I was online to check to see if the card company had recieved my payment when I saw this charge. I have been trying to call them all morning and still haven't been able to speak to anyone. HOW CAN THEY GET AWAY WITH STEALING PEOPLES INFORMATION AND USING IT. I THOUGHT WE HAD LAWS TO STOP THINGS LIKE THIS FROM HAPPENING? THEY HAVE LAWS FOR EVERYTHING ELSE.

    I too have been had by these people. I was paying my credit card on line last night and saw a charge for 11.99 pending. I looked into it and found out that since Feb they have been billing me. I called them this morning and the cust service rep told me that she could only refund me 20.00 some dollars and not the full amount b/c she couldn't identify me. What is funny is when I first called and gave them the numbers after the charge she identified me. Apparently she told me that they were on a site I visited (True Credit) and I selected them from it. The only thing I remember is selecting a button that said I could save 20% off and I hit yes. That is all I did. I had her cancel the so called membership and after she did she told me that she has been fielding numerous complaint calls and wishes she could refund my full amount!!! What???? Then do it. I told her about this page and she was aware of it. Someone somewhere needs to look into this business and shut them down.

    I have been in the the same boat for at least 9 months, with two charges monthly, one for 12.99 (116.91) and the other one for 13.99 (125.91), more than 240.00 d0llars plus all the over charges from 34.oo dollars each time the charge my account which i was trying to close. Definitely someone has to stop these people from styling everybody's money.

    Fun, Inc or the other handful of names they operate under is a scamming business that has been stealing $12.99 out of my 89 year old neighbors’ checking account for 48 months! They claim he signed up for their discount membership club when he ordered replacement checks through Checks in the Mail. When he first discovered this charge happening back in 2007 he contacted them to find out who they were and why were they debiting his account, he then requested that they stop as he never intentionally ordered this so called membership service nor did he ever receive a membership number or any information about this so called membership. Well, they did stop for a month and then they got back into his account and kept stealing $12.99 until I happen to catch it on his statement while helping him pay his bills as he's been in the hospital with surgeries. It turns out they do this to millions of unsuspecting people.

    We need to complain to the companies that are facilitating this con from happening. In this case it was hidden in the Checks In The Mail submission when ordering replacement checks, others have had it occur with True Credit, rent a cars, airline purchases, etc... I would think that these companies wouldn’t want this negative association with this thieving and outright deceptive Fun Incorporated or whatever the name they are using at the time. Then State-by State we need to report this to every Attorney General office. They were working in legislative changes that were supposed to stop reoccurring debit charges from scamming unsuspecting people.
