unauthorized charge - debit from account - fraud

I called after charges were made to my account without my knowledge. I called the bank and they said that these people do this often and that I need to call them and have them stop the transaction. Unbelievable! When I called the women was very rude. She said that their system was down and they couldn't help me. Then after saying I would not hang up until the charges were dropped the supervisor came one and said she wouldn't be able to get rid of the charges for seven days. Charges that were made to my account illegally! She said this was from signing up with something associated with Air Tran ( I have not bought any tickets from them for at least 2 months nor did I sign up for any program ) This is FRAUD. If I did not get alerts from my bank I would not have known about these charges. These people need to be shut down.

they stole my money

Just received my ssi check and all of a sudden I have a charge for $150.+ from someone called TLC Great Fun. Will call them tomorrow as it is now 10:39pm about getting my money back. Haven't a clue who they are and I sure as H==l can't afford to spend $150+ when I only get $900 a month to live on. They need to be put out of business, maybe the district attorney in their area can do something about it. Will see.

    I have been getting charged $12.99/mth from this company for over a year without my consent; I have sent them an email to contact me immediately to give me a refund. I have also contacted my bank and opened a case against this merchant.

debit card scam

I noticed a mysterious charge for $36.99 from TLG great Fun on my debit card statement. After researching online and finding they are being sued in a class action suite for scamming, I contacted them to demand the charges be reversed immediately. They did agree to reverse the charges and even gave me a confirmation #... who know's if that really means anything. Most importantly, what I discovered from my conversation with TLG Great Fun is that the obtained my debit card information from Classmates.com!!! Without my knowledge, classmates.com (with whom I had a very limited experience with long ago and no longer use) released my debit card information to these scammers without my permission! THAT MUST TO BE ILLEGAL RIGHT? Anyway, classmates.com agreement states

"6. THIRD-PARTY OFFERS.We may allow other companies to offer you products and services, including offers through our Website or via email.

I have filed a complaint online with the consumeraffairs.com. I just hope they're for real and not scammers.

my name is Kathy Bradley I recieve a bill on my credit card for 2 purchaes made in aug I have never heard of tlg shoppers I never bought anything from them . when i called the cedit card company they said I made two purchases with tlg shoppers. When I told them that I did not make any purchases to Tlg shoppers . I never heard of them, they gave me the phone number and told me to call them to find out what was bought . So I called them I got a recording telling me this service is not in my area. If it is not in my area how could i buy something . I am being charge $94.00 for whatever was bought. I called my credit card copmany back and told him what I had learn about tlg shoppers. They are going investagate it. I ask them if their was anyway they could find out tlg shoppers was and what it was that I was suppose to have brought. How can i find out about this alg shoppers nd what was brought .I am not going to stop here. there are more places to turn ths in at. I hope they find them in lock them up and though away the key.I expect a answer from you kathy bradley. How can I pick a category of complain when I don`t know what was purchace? I guess i have to pick one out of the air, won`t I

unknown company charged my bank account

This is a company that I had never heard of, that is, until they snagged $14.99 out of my bank account. I tried to find out who these people were and how they got ahold of my name and credit card information. I have never signed up for 'shoppers advantage' nor have I ever heard of them until they took this out of my account. I've filed a fraud report against these people and am waiting for the money to be refunded to me. They also caused me to bounce in my bank account. I did find a number to call these people and the lady said she took me off. I told her that I had never signed up in the first place. Then, she wanted to offer me some coupons...I wanted out of whatever scheme this was...I said NO. She gave me a conformation number. It says I'm not a member, so we shall see what happens next month.
I am waiting for my bank to file fraud charges against these people. I have seen so many other people who were taken for much more than I was--I went back 6 months in my bank account to make sure this was the only fee that they took out! Somebody should put these people out of business!!!

unauthorized/unengaged charges to atm/debit card

On hold for over 1 hour as I write trying to receive credit for a year of unauthorized charges in the amount of $11.99 each (small enough to stay under radar). All the banks know about these people. Not illegal, but once they capture you in a rather sneaky way through a pop-up in an online purchase (movie tickets, for example) it is nearly impossible to get them to stop. They do not want to be contacted as evidenced by being left on hold "waiting for next available agent" for over an hour. Most people give up. If there is a pending charge, you can't dispute until it goes through. Phone number shown for merchant while it's pending shows up as [protected]. Phone number once it goes through is [protected]. I have reported them to FBI and will next file complaint with State's Attorney General. Advise everyone else to do the same. Your bank will only give you so much credit back. Once you get this charge, just get a new bank card and cancel the old one. This will at least stop these ### until banks or authorities do something about TLG. Very deceptive way of doing business (certainly not legitimate business practices). 1 hour and seven minutes. Still on hold.

    i was able to get through easily in the middle of the day. immediately asked to speak to supervisor and then told him that i had requested it be canceled when charges first started (a lie, but got the job done) i was able to get over 100 back (nearly all that they took) and got a pretty solid cancellation.

unsolicited

With the many complaints that I have read about TLG I found interesting that HSBC is mentioned in many of them.
I have the same issue of unauthorized charges on my HSBC credit card. Since it is Saturday and I REALLY don't want to listen to recordings I have to start this mission Monday. well I will be trying to recoup the money involved and believe you me this will hit any news organization that will take it on also.
If you are in New York in any borough and have similar problems with TLG AND HSBC please please e-mail me with the info.
Thanks and good luck to us!

took 12.99 a month for a year

I just checked my bank statement and seen a charge on there for 12.99. I went back as far as last Nov, 2008 and was charged. I called my bank who gave me this [protected] number. I called and she said Oh when you went online to AISonline.com you gave us permission to charge you. I said for what? She said, "Oh we have wonderful coupons." I said to her coupons? you just telling me about this after a year? Why do I not have anything from you?"OH we attempted to send you a membership package last Novemeber. Yea right I told her I want my money back. Oh let me give you a supervisor. I got one and she said she would give me 4 months of 12.99 back. So out of 142.89 I get back 51.96? No I dont think so. So I am trying to find out how to file a claim or prosecute these people. ANyone help me? THanks, Rita

two cancelations and still getting charged

I agreed to a membership with tlg until i received their welcome package and it was nothing like what i agreed to join. I called and canceled the membership and i told them i wanted a refund. The guy gave me a fax number and told me that i had to write out why i thought i deserved a refund and fax there. After i called i noticed that i was still getting charged. I called and canceled again. I am still getting charged after i canceled twice. These phone calls were a couple of months apart and i spoke with a person each time. I can understand one mistake, but this seems fishy to me. I called my banks fraud division.

    I canceled a TLG Travelers Advantage membership after being promised gas coupons that I never received. I received a cancellation number. Now I am being billed by TLG Shoppers Advantage that I didn't sign up for. I have contacted the BBB and TLG which assures me that it will be canceled. Why do you have to cancel something that you never signed up for?

unauthorized charges on credit card

I made some travel arrangments on line and a pop-up window invited me to sign up for a rebate on the purchase I just made. I did not want to get involved in anything like that so clicked the "close" window button. all of a sudden, my credit card is being charged 11.99/month for their "services", of which I have no idea what they even are! I called great fun (luckily, they at least put a phone number on the credit card statement) and they informed me they could not give me a refund but would offer me a special discount on a future purchase of something-or-another. I did not even listen to the guy, "no, no, no." I said. I do not want to hassle with anything that involves me keeping track of what some shady company promises me. he said that if I insisted on getting a refund, I would have to fax a letter to their customer support services department requesting it. it is criminal that these people can get away with a scam like this, and then make the consumer who has been taken advantage of jump through hoops to clear the charges. I am disgusted. I have called my credit card company to dispute the charges and the rep told me this is certainly not the first time they have heard of this particular company.

    Do not use "Close Window" on Pop ups. That is how they get you.
    1) use the "X" in the comer

    2) Press ALT+CTRL+DEL at the same time and turn off the entire web browser. Then clean out your cookies.

    Very simple really. Pick up the phone and call the bank and cancel the ###ing card. Stop using it. Save your money and purchase things. These banks make billions of dollars a month engaging in this illegal activity. They only thing they have to do is pay fines. No one goes to jail, everyone passes go. You, you get stuck with the fees and bad credit. Leave the plastic ### alone.

    $83.90 was taken from my checking account over the past few months. i called this company to try to get information because i had never heard of it. the representative had trouble telling me who or what the company represented. then she claimed it was a company under fandango...that GREATFUN is a promotional package i signed up for. when i was asked if i enjoyed all the promotions i recieved in the mail i told her nothing had been mailed to me. nor had i signed up for anything. her response was that things get lost in the mail!
    i was able to get my bank to refund less than half of what was taken so i guess i will take my fight to the company who took my money to get the rest back.

    CALL THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY - that is where you dispute fraudulent charges.
    Also call the number on the statement to cancel it.

    Its called cramming and its illegal. Probably an internet purchase and you were not bothering to read the fine print.

I would like to have them removed as soon as possible and my cancellation code is R1008 .Please be advised that if there is any refund due to my card it would be very much appreciated and that I will also call my bank to make sure that these charges will in the future be removed.

    Hello All... I wish I had my website up and fully functional to field direct questions... however I don't. I will say I am a military member of over 10 yrs and realtor in the Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres (Florida) area and my name is Dean J. Neven. TLG great fun got me too... for $12.99/mo.

    The seemingly less than honest people on the phone, who appear to know the type of call coming in before picking up the phone, will talk to you. They would not give too much information; even though I repeatedly asked for a copy of the "e-mail verification", I was assured, was sent. They could not provide this. After about 30 minutes of calling different numbers and discussing my frustrations, I was assured me that the first 2 months would be refunded.

    --- THE FUNDS WERE DEPOSITED WITHIN 48 HOURS ---

    --HOWEVER --
    To receive any further refunds I was told to fax in my request to - 1-800-964-8115.

    THE KICK - This transaction occurred in last October (2008). It is now August... 9 more months to get back.

    HOW IT HAPPENS: TLG appears to put a note in these sites that asks if you accept... anything really. Some may even be in the "TERMS AND CONDITIONS"...

    WHAT THEY TOLD ME: I was told I received a 20% discount while purchasing "greeting cards" on Rexcraft. Evidently occasions.com has a deal with TLG - PER TLG's PERSONNEL. Thankfully I have the receipt from this purchase and guess what... NOT A PENNY OFF. I will be sending a copy of this receipt with my request for refund and should have my money back shortly.

    LASTLY - I truly and honestly hopes this helps any and all of you with this situation. My e-mail address is [email protected] - If you aren't spamming and really need help, I will forward you my "personal e-mail" and try to help as best as possible. God Bless all and have a great day. : D
