Received today in the mail apostcard said i was preapproved for a credit card unsecured for $500.00. I came home from work went on the website to give my preapproved number. Needless to say before i went any further i went to read the terms and conditions. They want either a debit card or a credit card with my name on it. I already fell for this stupid ### scam. I already have the same card but my so called credit limit is for yes $7, 500.00 dollars. I can't get my money back that they took out of my checking account and i have had my debit card canceled and had to get a new one plus change my pin number. I've tried to look for merchandise to see what they have, i can't believe the prices. How is the company allowed to stay in business?

    I to fell for this to, thinking I was getting an unsecured card.
    There is nothing on this website that is of any use to me. They
    have a limited source of products.I thought I would be able to
    use it on any site that I went to, I was wrong. I am a single
    household income and just would like my money back ! Can
    anyone out there help?

    Hello everyone my name's James and i also recieved the same post card in the mail on 8-01-08 but the problem is i have an 850 credit score? now if that's bad credit i'm a bad person. I would've never given my information for a card such as this over the internet, it's not worth it and i also feel that many people see the lure of the $500 and go crazy!

    People let me say this to you do what i do whenever you get any post cards or letters of "INSTANT CREDIT" go to google.com and type in that companies name and horror stories, for example here's another bad company to do business with "paypal" now go to google.com and type in "PAYPAL HORROR STORIES" now read all of the complaints there concerning paypal.com and ask yourself, would you or would you want to do business with that company?

    You can also type in "PAYPAL COMPLAINTS" and just look at all of the complaints this company has received. I do hope this information has come as some help to atleast one of you reading my comment.

    I have found this to be the same problem. If I want a credit card it is not to put money into other companies pockets. There are toooooo many rip off scams now. Also do not apply for a loan in cash200.com. they charge 19.00 to your checking account and do not approve you for a loan even after they tell you are approved.

    Why Im sending you and email is because is, I put my debit card no. in and it did not accept it and I do have money on my credit card but I would like a telephone no. so i could reach you.

    I just recieved my card today. The date is 8/28/08. I also thought as many others that this is a great offer. After reading the emails posted about how this is a scam basically, I pass. I do not need to be ripped off by a credit card offer that will be a liability more than an asset. People are seeking to gain a come up in credit status not a added beat down to add to already existing issues. I hope that more people keep posting notices on every company and rip off designed to take away and not add to. Not to mention the money that the company is pocketing. My advice is do not especially accept offers from a company that does not list a number to contacted but instead insist that you do business through the internet.

    I got the postcard in the mail and when I entered the web address my computer had flagged the website as dangerous. I skipped it and went to the complaints section to check out the company and I'm glad I did - I don't have the extra cash to throw away on a scam as I rebuild my credit rating after divorce. I don't thiink I want to do business with a company that doesn't have a number listed on the information they send you or one that send you unsolicited mail that's not even a real company. I'll stick with a company that's my established and upfront to elp rebuild my credit. Thanks for all the postings that help keep others from making a mistake.

    Thank you so much for letting me know abut this company. I just recieved a post card telling me that I was approved for a credit line. I went to the site and my computer said that is was a potentially danderous site so I saw the complaint address so I clicked on it and this is what I found and I would like to thank everyone for the alert.

    I received the same post card also but before I decided to try to enroll, I was looking for the terms and conditions before I would send any of my info. Couldn't find it. SO... there's a tip for you. If you can't read the terms and conditions or if they don't have any, don't waste your time. Also the Privacy Policy is bull****! They share your info with other scams.

    I got this postcard today and I went online to get it and they ask for my debit card number and I gave them one that was not any good and they told me to use another card. I knew right then that it was a scam, so I tore up my postcard. Thank all of you for your comments.

    i agree with yall i got the card saturday and i like the sound of 500.00 but after reading everyones comments i said no. i know it was some kind of stupid agreement with it. this company should be put out of business. then they give you a agent to talk with if your online her name is megan an she doesn't answer none of your questions.
