Maximum PlatinumUnauthorized charge!

I thought I was applying for an on-line loan and I received an email that cannot be replied to, stating that I was signed up for a credit card to use at 'meg-stores' whatever that is. They are deducting $49.95 from my checking account to activate this card which I did not authorize that I wanted and do not want!

    I also was applying for a loan and got forwarded to type information that I had already answeresd many times already. It wasn't til I got to the bottom that I realized what it was and got out of the page. I thrn got n e-mail saying they are deducting $49.95. For one thing the moneyis not n my account, but I do not need NFC funds. I cannot afford this. I WILL CALL BBB IF THIS HAPPENS!

    was online trying to get a loan. They make it sound like you are approved. 5 days later no money in bank from them so never followed up on. However: on the 13th of MARCH (supposedly ok on Feb 28.) I see this charge. My bank account is $500.00 in the red because of this. I have tried to call them and is a bunch of HATEFUL people when you call. Took me three days just to get the name of company that sent me the supposed email. Here we are, In my research I see I am not the only taken for a ride. I am taking this to my WONDERFUL banking institute who helps me with this mess and I DISPUTED CHARGES.

    Hello:

    I inquired about an on-line loan as well. Last month my checkinga account was charged 79.95 for something I did not authorize. The website was very misleading and you could not go forward or back when this screen came up. I finally found a 1-800 # to call and the CSR was very rude and said the company has a "no refund" policy. I need to get my money back so if anyone has been successful I would like to know the info. I am thinking of reporting them to our Attorney Generals office.

    the same happened to me the company deducted $79.95 out of my account the only way to report that is to try to make a dispute with you bank and take it from there and yes max.care techs were very rude about the situation saying there is nothing they can do

    I was applying for a payroll advance through cashadvance.com and I somehow got an email from Maximum Platinum congratulating me for subscribing to their services, when in fact I did not that I am aware of, so I tried to return their emails and I even tried contacting them through their website with no reply and when I finally got through to someone they said they will not return my $79.95 and I am attempting to send a copy of all returned emails and emails that did go through to prove that I did attempt to contact them. This company is ripping innocent consumers off by stealing their information every time someone attempts to get a payday loan through these websites. Is there anything I can do to get my money refunded??

    I had $79.95 deducted from my account TWICE! I never authorized this deduction from my account! Because it is considered an NSF, there is nothing my bank can do to help me. When I called Maximum Platinum the CSR's were VERY rude! I filed a complaint with our local police department, but was told there is nothing that really can be done. Any other suggestions?!?!!?

    They did the same thing to me twice, the first time they were going to take$79.95 out of my account and I e-mailed them and they didn't take and had closed out my bank account and started another account with a different bank and just today I checked my new bank account balance and they have taken $49.95 out of my account. There is a phone number on a copy of my check that I was able to see on line and I tried calling it and it's a bogus number. I am going to my bank tomorrow and see what can be done. Good luck to all of U and if something can be done I'll let U guys know.

    I received an e-mail stating that I had been enrolled with Maximum Platinum. I specifically did not enroll in this online mega-store. The e-mail sated that the enrollment fee debit of $79.95 that I "authorized" would be submitted for payment to my bank within 3 business days and my account activation expected withing the next 14 days.

    I have no use for this service nor would I have enrolled in such non-sense. I most certainly cannot afford to spend $79.95 for nothing.

    This same thing happened to me. I applied for a payday loan that I didn't even get and about two weeks later my husband informed that the count had NSF in it. The bank gave us the number to this bootleg company the Rep named Toya was very rude. To say the least the stuff on there look cheap.
    I'm just so upset that this can happen and there's nothing you can do about it.
    If anybody have any suggestion feel free to let me know.
    Thanks
