Same as all the other complaints, taking money on false pretences .First time using online buying and got ripped off with this company Ameritruust financial.I don't understand how a company can take such a name as trust in america, get a buisness licence and rip american people of their hard earn money without any recorse on their action.
As all of you know already they are scam artists. I got a call tonight from a guy that said he was from ameritrust financial and that I had been pre-approved for a credit card with a 2, 000 dollar credit limit and once I made my first payment on time I would be able to withdraw $1, 000 cash but first I had to make a $200 deposit and it was going to be withdrawn from my account but something inside told me to look them up on the web and I came across this website and now I'm hoping I can do something about this before it gets out of hand for me. They promised they can help me rebuild my credit score in three months if I made my payments consistently. That was the only reason I wanted to accept the offer and all of your stories sound exactly like what the man was telling me.
We recvd. a call from Ameritrust Financial in April'08. We were told that we were approved for a Visa credit card with a $2000 limit. They were to take from our account $200 which at the time didn't seem to be to bad for a $2000 visa card.The guy that called said that the card could be used anywhere(which was a lie & he was very misleading) we asked him three times, " is this card for catalog purchases?".He said no we can use it anywhere. Well, as it looks we are in the same situation as the rest of you dealing with these people.They took our first pyment.of $100 & trying to take out the remaining pretty soon(which is not going to happen) We placed numerous of calls & it appears to be a call center the CSR's there are very unprofessional, and unknowledgeable about the company they supposeably work for. The only thing they could tell us is that our money is non-refundable.No physical address..just a P.O. Box, no fax#, and the managers or supervisors tend to be out alot. Whoever these people are..they're making alot of money doing what they do...scamming people. The economy is too screwed up right now to play with people's money like this. How are they getting away with this? I want to know has anyone out there filed a suit against this company? There's too many of us with the same complaint about the same company, for something not to happen. E-mail me ([protected]@sbcglobal.net)and let me know...I will definitely sign for any type of suit brought up on them.This needs to stop!
I was called by these people to sigh up. I refused several times but when i was told i could cancel with out a fee as long as i called with in 24 hours i could. I thought i would look at their catalog first i need some baseball gear for my boys. they said that they had all kinds of youth baseball gear. They had 1 glove i could have bought 50 times that was all no bats, balls, cleat's, or any other items.
I called back and was told i could not cancel till it was in their system 3 to 4 days i was told once again there would be no charge. Well guess what yep. When i called to have them reverse the charge i was told that no one there would have ever told me that they would. I told her i was going to report them she said OK like it wasn't any concern to her.
I WAS DECIEVED BY THIS COMPANY!!!! I ASKED THE MAN THAT I TALKED TO IF THIS CARD WAS FOR A CATALOG AND TOLD HIM THAT IF IT WAS I DID NOT WANT IT! HE THEN TOLD ME THAT IT CAN BE USED FOR CATALOGS IF I WANTED IT TO BE AND I SAID NO! I ALSO ASKED HIM IF IT HAD ANY RESTRICTIONS ON IT AND IF I COULD USE IT ANYWHERE AND HE THEN TOLD ME THAT THERE WERE NO RESTRICTIONS ON IT AND THAT I COULD USE IT ABSOLUTELY ANYWHERE JUST LIKE A REGULAR CREDIT CARD. I ASKED HIM WHAT KIND OF CARD IT WAS AS WELL I ASKED IF IT WAS A VISA OR MASTER CARD AND HE THEN PROCEEDED TO ASK ME WHICH ONE DID I PREFER AND I REPLIED VISA AND HE SAID OK THAT IS NO PROBLEM. SO COME TO FIND OUT IT IS A CARD FOR A CATALOG AND ONLY AMERITRUSTS SITE! THIS IS ABSOLUTE BULL! THAT IS 200 DOLLARS THAT I DO NOT HAVE EXTRA IM 21 YEARS OLD AND A SINGLE MOTHER TRYING TO GO TO SCHOOL AND WORK ! I WROTE A LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT AND THEY DENIED MY REQUEST FOR A REFUND I AM GOING TO REPORT THEM TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU AND I HOPE YOU WILL DO THE SAME!
Hi, This is the worst experience i ever had, they took $200 from my checking account without my permission & now they say we dont have the money, when i checked wit my bank they say the money is already transferred to them. I dont understand where the money is, pls help me
this company is a scam, i have paid a cancellation fee on 01/07/2008, now they are debiting my account again for $200, which is not in my account anyways thank GOD, but i have to pay the bank a $20 nsf fee, i called them which they try not to answer they phone so i call again and make up a four digit ext. # then someone answers they tell me to fax over the bank statement of the check, which i find out it is a fabricated check which my bank says they said they have used an electronic voice thing to draw the money out, why am i paying for nothing because i cancelled it so look it is just a bunch of nerve wrecking issues i am going to pay it and close my account these people are out to rip you off!
This company has called me fifteen times in two days, i never answered the phone until the curiosity finally got to me and I called back. When you originally call back it all seems legitimate, automated answering service and all. These are the most ignorant, rude unprofessional people i have ever dealt with. The first woman i spoke with took my information and told me her supervisor "Sean" would call me back, as soon as i hung up the phone i got a bad feeling about giving my information, I called right back and asked to speak with a manager, the person that answered said there was no manager, then told me he was the manager. I repeatedly told him to take all of my information out of the system and to put a manager on the phone, he told me he would go ahead and put me on hold for a couple hours while he drove to a managers house. He was rude, ignorant, hung up on me. told me that i would never be able to speak with a manager, i called back several times and he was the only person to answer the phone, as if he was the only one working. so they operantly have caller id. I am not sure if they are able to get in my account, i told them to remove all my info and called my bank, i now have to close my bank account and reopen another one, hopefully they wont get in my account before then. I am calling the BBB and any one else that will listen!!!
Do not be stupid like me!! I am having financial problems. I was sitting here one day thinking "What am I...
I received a phone call from Ameritrust on october 25, 2006, asking me if I wanted to sign up for a credit card to help raise my credit score.
The lady told me that the $200 processing fee would be reimbursed through vouchers, so I agreed. I gave them my information, and they deducted the money from my account on Nov.21.
I called them in the middle of December, and they said that a package was mailed to me on Nov. 28, and that it would cost me more to cancel, so I should just use the vouchers. It is now March, and I still have not received anything from them, and they have not returned my phone calls.
DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY. They are a scam, and will take your money.
In part this is my fault because I was naive enough to believe them. They called promising all kinds of great...
