Platinum Millennium Publishing - unapproved withdrawals from my credit card

Good day
I see i am one of many who signed up for a product that was free and you only had to pay for shipping. I have yet to receive such a product so I assume this was not a genuine offer. I subsequently have found three deductions on my credit card from yourselves. I am not aware of having authorised these transactions and would like a refund please. I would also like a refund for the product I have not received. Please also remove me from your email list.

Platinum Millennium Publishing - charge on my card

I purchased a small writers sign and a tool kit from the company but did not realise that I would be playing £51.59 a month afterwards.
I have read other complaints on here regarding others not knowing that there was a NO THANKS option ( I guess it's quite small ).

I am not happy to be paying this amount for something that I am not using.

I would appreciate a refund and the cancellation of my "membership".

As a disabled lady who is trying to make her way to writing her first novel I am simply not able to afford this amount being taken out of my account.

This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

I woke this AM to find a charge from Platinum Millennium Publishing for $67.73 and I have no idea what this charge is for. I did not authorize this charge. This is 2 weeks after I made a purchase from Writerslife.com. I did one of the free orders giveaways online. I am attempting to have the charge reserved and shall also call this company. I like how they hide behind all kinds of layers as well.

I have seen 3 withdrawals on my bank statement. These are unauthorized withdrawals. May 30 $90.59, April 16 $87.62, and April 2 $89.60. none of these were approved by me. I am on disability and can not afford these type of withdrawals. I noticed when I found I could not pay my medical supplies. I am requesting a refund totalling $267.81. I did pat shipping...

Platinum Millennium Publishing - taking unauthorised payments

I bought a CD Rom from you in March. You have taken money from my credit card in April and May. I have cancelled this on my credit card and I do not want you to take any further payment. I was not made aware that further payments would be taken, and am requesting that you return the unauthorised payments. I can see online that you do this regularly.
Please return the payments as soon as possible.
My email address is [protected]@gmail.com.

Platinum Millennium Publishing - unauthorized credit card charges for so called free cd costs a lot of money!

On April 30, 2018, I paid $4.95 shipping and handling for a "free CD" and immediately got extra charges showing on my credit card! Then, on the same date, there was a $67.73 unauthorized charge! I stumbled upon this criminal enterprise, Millenium Publishing, online. I went to a hyped online webinar where this crook, Ty Cohen, did a slick hour long upsale, wanting me to pay a discounted $997. as a discount price off his $4997. publishing [censored] bootcamp package. No wonder the guy is rich! My credit card company is refunding the fraudulent charges and killed my current card so no more money is stolen from me!

Platinum Millennium Publishing - unauthorized credit card charges

Last april 25, I purchased the book "get paid to write" from the "writers' life.org.
For $27.00 through my citi visa card. Then three days after, I received an email saying that the book has been sent through stamps.com, usps.

In good faith I used my card not knowing that platinum millenium publishing will just be charging another of their publications without my authorization.

Please refund immediately the amount of $67.73 (publi203-526-6031).

Thank you very much

Platinum Millennium Publishing - unauthorized credit card charges

To my surprise, I was billed $67.73 dollars twice: last 3 April 2018 and today, 3 May 2018. I never subscribed to whatever service they had and even asked for a refund of a product I bought last month. I never got any invoice or proof of receipt of payment from the times they charged my card, which leads me to believe tbis is a scamming company. I want to get my money back...money stolen from me by this company.

Platinum Millennium Publishing - unauthorised payment

I have just been checking my bank account and have seen a payment of which I did not authorise. The payment was taken from my account was of the amount of £48.14 this was taken on the 20th April. I have not opted for any subscription or membership of any kind to my Knowledge and would appreciate this matter being dealt with as soon as possible. Please advise me as to what this payment was allegedly for and could you also arrange a refund as soon as possible as this payment has made me overdrawn.
Regards

Platinum Millennium Publishing - charges on my visa account

I have had 26.76 Australian dollars on my visa card for a very long time. I tried calling the numbers on their website with no answer.
I did not request this membership. I have now cancelled the card so they no longer can take Payments from it it says Platinummillenniump [protected] Nc

After checking them out I see so many people complaining about this. I would like a full refund and they shouldn't just opt people into their membership it should be a request..
great scam for them. Leaving us high and dry.

Platinum Millennium Publishing - they keep charging us and won't quit

Hi I have been trying to desperately get this company to quite charging me for services I do not want. I have called numerous times and even attempted logging on and emailing them to cancel whatever they are charging me for. Either that page is down or I leave a message and no follow thru but no actually people ever respond. The charges don't make sense before Christmas the charges were over a hundred now they are close to 70 a month. This is a scam. we would love a refund for the several hundred dollars they have charged us but if nothing else I want no further charges to be made.

Platinum Millennium Publishing - being billed $67.00 a month - not sure what i'm getting.

I am being billed $67.00 a month from this company. Not sure what this is for.
Get no services from them - not sure how they got my card number - tried calling them - just got pretty on-hold music. Please tell them to cancel this billing. I did order something from them, did not realize that came with the "privilege" of being billed monthly by them. Tried several phone numbers - all I got was music. No live people to come to the phone. PLEASE CANCEL THE ")(*&^ charges.

I hae been billed $67.00 a month for at least three months by this company. Although I did buy a course of some kind from them, I don't recall authorizing a monthly billing. Tried to call to cancel, got several minutes of beautiful music.
Tried to send an email which got kicked back as being undeliverable. Next step will be to cancel the card, which will be an inconvenience.

Platinum Millennium Publishing - unauthorized debits to my mastercard

I was a beneficiary of the writers toolkit after paying shipping of $7.99 for S&H. However it was not written anywhere on your site that I would be charged membership fees or other fees thereafter. I was just going through my account and I discovered that Writerslife.org has charged me about $553.66 (Five hundred and fifty three Dollars, Sixty Six cents) from October 2017 to date!

This is alarming and unimaginable. The unfortunate thing is that I do not know what I am even being charged for because going through all your emails and blogposts, every item still has to be paid for before you can receive them.

Kindly reverse all the debits made to my Master Card as I really have a lot of respect for you and do not want to make this messy. See bank statement with dates attached

I am so sorry that you were charged for a membership that you did not want.

We do offer our customers a YES or NO trial to our membership when they order certain items from us. You have the option of saying NO if you do not wish to join the PWA membership program. We are totally transparent about it on our web page, and you are not forced into joining.

Our membership program is packed with content that a lot of authors and writers such as yourself find to be extremely beneficial to them.

We do offer you a free, 14-day trial to read the content, watch the videos, consume the newsletters and listen to the insider interviews. As stated on our website and within the terms, if the trial is not canceled after the free 14 day trial period, you are then charged for the membership, which you can still cancel at any time and receive a full refund.

Again, this is not a membership that you are forced to take. IN fact, to be totally transparent on all of our order pages you will see a very visible “No Thanks” option that will NOT put you into our membership, perhaps you overlooked it.

Again, I am so sorry for this mistake and want to make things right with you in whatever way I can, including providing you with a full refund if you wish.

I would like to try to make up for you not being satisfied and look forward to speaking with you and I hope you have a great day!

Please reply here or reach out to us using any of the contacts means below;

Please note that when leaving a voicemail or sending in an email or support ticket, depending on the day and time, it can take up to 72 hours to receive a reply from us.

We are open from 9 am to 9 pm Eastern Time Monday – Friday

Platinum Millennium Publishing - po8667529968nc

I have been trying to reach this company for several months. It is completely by chance that I came across this site today. I ordered the cd "Plotting Your Way to Success!", along with a little sign that states "Warning, Novelist At Work, Bystanders May Be Written Into The Story", several months ago. I used my credit card for this purchase, and paid shipping and handling. Since then, my credit card shows charges of $67.73 USD ($86.27 Canadian) MONTHLY! I have emailed your company three times, and received no reply - in fact, I'm told that the email address (provided on advertising I receive from YOU) is invalid. Why are you charging this exorbitant monthly amount for 1 CD and cheap sign (bent, and damaged upon arrival, I must add)? I have never ordered anything else from you, nor have I ever received anything else from you. This product is the first one that I have ever purchased online, and, after this horrible experience, I will never order from any other online company. My trust is shattered. I demand that you to immediately stop charging these monthly amounts to my credit card, and I demand a full refund of all monies charged to my account from your company. I have been working with my credit card company, and they have assured me that they will be looking into this matter.
Sincerely: Sharon Van Troyen

Platinum Millennium Publishing - unauthorised deductions from credit card

In October 2017 I made a small purchase from this company. Since then there have been 4 unauthorised deductions from my credit card in New Zealand, of US$67.73. That is a total of US$270.92, far more than any writer can afford to lose. The latest one was on 2nd February 2018. I failed to notice this was happening until recently.

I did not sign up or take out any subscription with this company. I would like a full refund of the four deductions please. Can you let me know how best to do this?

I have changed my credit card as a result of these unauthorised deductions so will need to provide to you details of my new account.

Best wishes

Jan Pryor

Platinum Millennium Publishing - wrongful purchase from my mastercard

Re: Garner NC 0113 (13th January, 2018) for the amount of $86.14
I see on my recent bank statement the above deduction from my MasterCard account. I did not request this product. I went into your website to check it out, but I did not request to buy ANY of your products.
You have seriously disadvantaged me financially at this time by processing this payment without my even wanting to buy anything at the time. I was merely wanting to LOOK at your product. That's all!
I would like a COMPLETE refund as soon as possible.
Thank you
Toni Wass

Platinum Millennium Publishing - witerslife

Despite many messages sent to both platimum millenum publishing and writerslife asking them to put an end to the recurrent membership payments they are getting from me without my knowledgeable consent, I have been billed again this month. I am asking millenum and writerslife again to cancel all bills and reimburse those paid until now despite my formal request to have them cancelled.
