Last May, my husband's brother was looking for work. He was living at our house, and searching online for jobs. He came across an ad from Google offering an info. packet for a work-at-home job. The packet cost $ .99 to order. My bro-in-law didn't have a credit card of his own at the time, so we let him borrow ours to order the info. packet. The packet never came. My brother-in-law found another job. We all but forgot about the transaction.
Over the next 8 months, our credit card incurred multiple unrecognized charges from multiple companies. The charge amounts were the same each month, but the company names listed on the credit card statements kept changing. Charges for $72.21 showed up from "Google Genie", "Blazing Keywords", and "Online Services". Charges for $38.34 showed up from "Web Services", "ECO Career Help", "Products Resource", "DCY Grants", and "Grants 4 Us". Charges for $29.90 showed up from "ID PowerSafe", "Credit-4-Me", and "Access Member Area". I didn't notice the charges at first, because I didn't know to even look for them, and the names kept changing so I didn't know they were all related. Finally, after calling the numbers listed on my credit card statements, I came to realize they were all linked back to that $ .99 info packet that my brother-in-law ordered and never received.
Over the past 8 months, we have incurred a total of $859.58 of unauthorized transactions on our credit card, all believed to have stemmed from the "work at home" online scam. I've since canceled my credit card, and filed disputes on all of the charges. I have yet to find out if I will be reimbursed for them or not.
After agreeing to take a look at their offering to earn money working from home, my wife cancelled their service within the 7-day trial period. Two months later we realized Blazing Keywords, operating under a variety of business names, had debited more than $450 from our bank account without, of course, being authorized to do so. We called them and cancelled their service once again. They agreed to cancel, but have continued to debit close to $70 more from our bank account. So, we have been forced to cancel the debit card they had been using. On one call to their customer support call center they gave us an e-mail address where we could demand a refund of our money. We wrote, with a detailed list of the many charges; we have had no response. As a result, we are filing a formal complaint with the Utah State Division of Consumer Protection.
Be aware of blazing keywords this is the website that will steal from you<br / > <br / > Http: ...
I responded to an ad online advertising some sort of work concerning Google that cost $1.97. I looked it over...
I signed up for the work at home program from google Inc. where I was required to pay US$1.95 to receive a start up kit . I paid this amount by credit card and waited to receive my kit. That was about two months ago, I have not received the kit to date.
However upon checking my credit card statement I am now seeing the US$1.95 plus an additional charge for approx. US$72.00 which I did not authorise to be deducted from my credit card account.
I would like to know what recourse I have to recover my funds?
These People are unbelievable.
First the hook... promises of work at home with a dream paycheck and then they lie and say it is free!!!
Then you are directed to a link to a website to signup for FREE to get this great info!
Then you are charged a small fee to "deliver" the software
Then they tell you several weeks later that you will be billed monthly for over $70 dollars automatically but if you wish to cancel you may email or call.
THEN THEY DON'T ANSWER ANY OF THE COMMUNICATIONS!!!
SO Now you have only a few options
1. Cancel the card they intend to bill to.
2. Get your bank to issue a new account number and card.
3. GO INSANE TRYING TO GET THEM TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION!
I have been trying to get this resolved for several weeks now and NO ONE EVER ANSWERS THE PHONE!
I still have yet to discover the name of the actual business I am being ripped off by!
Stay away from these CHEATS!
I am going to my attorney first thing tomorrow to see if a letter from his law firm will cut any water with these thieves!!!
