    You say that this was not in their terms and conditions???
    Well I beg to defer the difference because it does say it: on the terms and disclosures page after you put your information and they want you to pay for the $1.95 fee.. it says it on the bottom.. LOOK HERE:
    https://secure.secureorderpages.com/googlecash/order.aspx

    This is what the bottom says:

    In fairness. Finally, got a response from customer service rep Jessica, said they will refund $39.95 within 3 to 4 days. Just have to be very patient in waiting while on hold. It took me about half an hour before finally getting to speak to someone.

    I was shocked when I got charged the $39.95 fee also and called the customer service number. I got through right away, but I called around 7pm CST. They offered to refund my money and also cancelled the add on trials. I agreed to let the payment stand and if I decide to stay on, I will only be billed $29.95 per month. I have until Jan 8 2008 to decide if I want to continue. thought they were very reasonable. I would like to know if the program really works. It looks very complicated to use.

    I apologize for any misunderstanding regarding the services you've been receiving from our company. There are no commitments with the free product. However, there is a bonus free trial period to membership websites that accompanies the free CD and we do our best to disclose this as it is stated 4 times throughout the ordering process - on the sales page, the order page (as stated above by Kleber Dg in his comment), the confirmation page and in the confirmation/thank you email. It is also disclosed in the Terms and Conditions of the offer. The trial periods are free for 7-30 days depending on which bonuses apply and we would not have charged anyone had you canceled during the trial period. It is not our desire to bill clients who do not want the membership after the free trial offer ends.

    For customer service you may call [protected] and they'll be happy to cancel your account. If you've already tried our customer service department and feel like you weren't treated fairly please call me ASAP and I will address your concern immediately.

    My cell number is [protected] and my email address is [protected]@wskc.org.

    Sincerely,

    Ryan R.

    I did order a CD for Growing Rich with Google, thinging for sure anything with Google would be safe. I only asked for information and orderd the CD. The CD never arrived and I have received this month charges for Google for profit for $39.95 and other charges for $7.95 and for $9.95 for two things I never ordered or heard of. One is something about Grant Masters and the other is Network Asistant, a day planner thing I am told. I called one of the numbers on my credit card charges and reached rep. Kim at Raven Media. she explained what had occured about the 7 day trial and how it was all explained when I ordered and in the emails I had received and with the $1.97 CD. I did not receive the CD and I do not open email from senders I do not know. Kim cancelled the charges for the future, but would not refund my money. While I am charged for service I did not receive, I do not have any login info. Kim gave me a "complimentary" use of two of the products and created Login info for me. I immediately received that confirmation of login info from both sites AND was thanked for my order. Dear God, looks like I have signed up again. When I tried to reply to these emails, they all came back from the webmaster. I am afraid to login so I can cancel. Help.

    I canceled whatever it is that they said I ordered. For one thing, I did not order anything nor did I fill out any form regarding Growing Rich with Google. I don't even know how they got my credit card #. If I didn't check my bank account today I wouldn't have known that $1.95 fee was charged to my account. I contacted my bank right away and they told me that It looks like a telemarketing. I don't even remember talking to anyone on the phone about any of this. I called the company, and they said I signed up yesterday. I didn't even purchase anything online yesterday. I think this is fraud.

    I ordered the $1.95 cd (shipping charge only), recieved it one day AFTER i recieved my credit card bill for $39.95 for the service. I called the credit card co., they cancelled the charge, and told me to call the number that was given for cancelling the service. i called the number was told there would be a five minute wait, after 45 minutes the five minute wait had become a 35 minute wait with 68 callers ahead of me. if i had joined the service, and done what google had told me, according to their claim, i would have made several hundred dollars while waiting for their rep. to answer my call. I believe this to be a total scam, and now know how google owners have become so wealthy,through FRADULANT practices.

    The "Growing Rich With Google" number, [protected], is never answered, so there is no way to cancel. I have tried numerous times in the last month and always get seemingly random recordings about the number of callers ahead of me. The message will start with something like 80 callers ahead of me, then increase, then decrease, then finally the messages just stop playing although the call is not terminated -- until I hang up an hour or two later. One poster claimed this is not a scam and that we all should've read the fine print. But the fact is, there is either no way to cancel or else it is extremely difficult to cancel -- guaranteeing that they can hit you up for $39.95 plus $7.95 plus $9.95 at least once or twice -- or more, if they never answer their "customer service" number.

    I did get through to "Jessica" at the number for networkagenda.com and she agreed to refund the $9.95, but when I asked if she was affiliated with "Growing Rich With Google" or "Grant Search Assistant," she said no, those are separate companies. Yet someone else on this board reported that a "Jessica" answered the "Growing Rich With Google" number and agreed to cancel the $39.95 charges. Funny how there is a Jessica at more than one of these companies. I doubt that is a coincidence.

    The voicemail on the cell phone number given by "Ryan R" is full, so good luck trying to go that route. Your best bet is to contact the fraud department at your credit card company and get them to remove the charges.

    None of these companies are affiliated with Google, and the real Google has already been contacted regarding the use of the trademarked Google name by these scam artists.

    On december 02,2007 received confirmation of my payment of $1.95 by the CD offered by free, I accepted the payment with my credit card, but 3 weeks after google charged without my authorization to my credit card $39.95, and this is an abuse against me because I sent an email to google claiming that the username and password that they gave me is not accepted by the web.

    I haven't received till to day the response to my eamil, and I can't make the work that they offer me.

    I hope not be charged with any other amount of money if don't arrange the problem that I have informed.

    I am also another victim of this scam. The way I read it was similiar to the majority of postings. Only the shipping of 1.95 nothing about the 39.95 that caused numerous overdraft charges. I have talked to my bank and will be following up with my banks fraud division ASAP!

    I recently received the disk in the mail. I knew that I had no intention on becoming a member and didn't want my credit card to be charged the 39.95. When I went to look for the original email in my inbox that I used to get to the website to begin, the webpage no longer worked. I don't know if it was just the link to the site or what. Then I went to the site listed www. googlemoneyprofit.com and the site looked so generic I began to worry that this was a scam. I decided to google this Google Money Profit and found this complaint website. As I began to read I started to panic, and called the [protected] number someone listed in their complaint. I was prompted that there were 2 calls ahead of me. Then a representative named Jacob assisted me with no problems. He cancelled my service, questioned the reason, and gave me a confirmation number. Quick and painless....so far. I will wait and see what happens.

    I called their customer service # to cancel my subscription and had no problems. Actually, I was on hold for about 5 minutes, they told me what number I was in line for the next customer rep and the music wasn't that bad. Rose was very pleasant and helpful and had my subscription cancelled in no time.
    Now, Network Agenda was another story. Those ( ) had me waiting for about 10 minutes (music wasn't that bad, either) then system voice had me state reason for call, name and card info, then cut me off (hung up). Tried it twice, same results. Had to go through credit card to cancel.

    I was also stupid enough to fall for this. I did not agree to have my cc provided to third party or affiliate programs butn thats exactly what happened. I was charged $39.95 for the Growing Rich w/Google - refund is being processed; $7.95 for BSM/Grant Search Asst - refund being processed; $9.95 for Network Agenda.com - have not been able to contact yet; and $33.87 for Reward Me More Live - I was give an address to dispute the charge. Free trial or not these companies should not have been given credit card and bank information without the express permission of the account holder. If a free trial is provided they should cancel automatically unless notified not the other way around. I was notified of one of these free trials, not four, nor should I have to write to a company to dispute charges that Google is responsible for providing my cc information to without my permission. Google should stop this practice before they hurt more people.

    I ordered this, of course cause it sounded to good to be true. It is., 1st off I didnt even get the CD that i ordered. 2nd Im not rich (if i was why would i want it) so i cant pay 39.95 a month if im not making money now can I? Im tired of all these offers wanting to make u rich(er) and not helping people like me, if these offers were as good as they say there are they offer more than 7 days free, and a money back gurantee. I guess there arent as good as they claim, nice going google.

    If you all read the website/phonecall they made, it clearly states in the terms of condition which is something you should probably read before giving out your credit card number. have some common sense people seriously. I just called the number, at 12:00 pm and got right through from beginning to end of phone call lasted two minutes including wait time and talking time. they were very helpful in cancelling but the question wasnt how many people got charged this amount, the question was is the cd worth the 1.95 for shipping whethor u got charged for ur stupidity or not. dont get me wrong it seems like some of you are having trouble with the customer service line but try at different times of the day it makes a big difference. thanks and try answering the question for the man who wrote the question.

    Hello my name is Adam and I am a scam victim. Same situation obviously, however when I called the customer service number above [protected] I got Jacob in about 60 seconds and he asked for account information and reason for canceling. Gave me a confirmation number and we were done. I didn't ask for money back, thought I would leave it as a lesson to myself for being that stupid in the first place. And I called at 5:00p.m. mountain standard time

    I'm also a victim of this Scam. I only see FREE CD GUIDE with ONLY 1.95 SHIPPING, I din'd see anything about the 39.99. Now they take money out of my bank account every months. I put my trust with GOOGLE, I thought it's a pretisgous business. I never imagine that company is a SCAM. Somebody need to do something to STOP this SCAM right away. It seems like there are more and more victims fall into their trap everyday.

    read all blogs and what firsts leads you to their site is this at "at home job offer " Get Rich with the Internet's Top Company – GOOGLE" so of course you think it's THE GOOGLE, however, when you get to their actual website describing the job and selling you the system, it clearly states in the bottom line in their website "Copyright © Easy Net Income™ 2008 - All Rights Reserved.
    You must be 18 years or older to order. Google does not sponsor, endorse, nor is in any way affiliated with Easy Net Income™."
    So it's not THE REAL GOOGLE.
    By the time they charge the $39.93 haven't any of you tested out the system? Did all of you get a website that was unresponsive?
    They are everywhere on the net, surely a million peeps have tried this... someone has to be making money...but who?
    I'm still not convinced it's a scam because everyone seems to eventually get their $$ back. Did anyone actualy get to try this system? I'm crazy curious:)

    I have also been scammed by Google and a company called Network Agenda.com. For over a year they were charging an unauthorized charge to my credit card of $7.95. Their claim was that I ordered a CD from Google. This never happened. And since I never cancelled, I have been charged. Lesson learned; read your credit card statements closely every month.
    You CAN stop these charges when the company won't.

    1. File a complaint with the fraud dept. of your card company.
    2. Change you card account number.
    3. Write a letter to your State Attorney General's Office and one to the State Attorney General in the state where Network Agenda is located. (on your statement).

    It works, the charges have stopped to my card. Will work with bank accounts too.

    I too have been scammed and I agree with all the other people. Nowhere did I read that I would be charged an additional $39.95 My understanding was that I needed to wait for the cd and then at that point I could decide if the program was for me. When I called the customer service # on the cd I was basiclly told "tough luck", well I then found this forum and called Ryan Riddle`s # only to leave a message. Now I`m going to spend even more of my time and money and let my bank take care of it. This is not the first time I have been ripped off by one of these marketing scams. It seems all you have to do is show an interest in what they offer and you get screwed. In the future I am going to reply to them with EXTREME prejudice informing them never to offer me anything EVER and I`m not sure that will stop them.

    These people will rip you off saying that you will get a job. Then they suprise you after 7 days and say that you will be paying also for some legal firm that is supposed to help you, not get you paid! They then ask for more money in getting you to try and by and sell crap off of ebay DAHH already knew I could do that. They trick you and then make you pay them 39.99 over and over and over again until you have to cancle your account. They need to be put out of business. What a horrible business.

    Google is taking money that they are not authorized to take! I ordered a cd for 1.95 and never got it through the mail. I didn’t think much of it. Then after a couple months bank account is going down. The account I used went into the red because they were taking 39.95 without my knowledge and now I have to have my Bank deal with the matters because it is all fraud!! When I tried to research this stuff on “google”….strange….I get all kinds of complaint pages but google won’t let you print out those pages somehow. So I took pictures! Proof enough. Plus I do have the links however long they will let them stay up.
    Cancel your cards and get new cards immediately and Good Luck!
