I was refused credit by a company due to a statement made by Equifax on a credit cheque application.
The statement read "Disclosure of use of Information Obtained From an Outside Source” I took this to my bank and they did not know what it means so I wrote to Equifax about this and now they have charged $64.54 me for queering this statement.
A charge of 29.95 was charged to my debit card on 1/09/10,
I have no idea what this is, also PC tools charged 69.95 without
had an UNAUTHORIZED withdrawl taken out of our checking account by this who knows what it is DRI*ELEMENTS5.COM never delt with them I don't know what they are. Now I have to go through the aggrivation of clearing this mess up, and when I get to the bottom of it I feel sorry for the person I get a hold of at this rip off place. Where's the justice in the world ? Innocent people working two jobs to try provide for their families and TRY to pay their mortgage and bills and now we have to worry about these idiots like this putting our accounts in the minus because of a $ 39.95 charge we never knew was coming. And that's how close our budget is just a $ 39.95 charge puts our world upside down.
I have this debit from my credit that I never purchased. The bank cannot do anything until it goes thru the account.
Checking my credit card purcheses online I found a charge of $86.67 under the name HelpMeDownload.com, I googled it found that they are a scam company, and then today i find a charge pending for 39.95 under the name DRI*Element5.com googled them as well found out they were a scam company as well so i had to cancel my credit cards, put all my other bills on hold till i recieve a new card. Personally i think these two companys are same company, stealing from a lot of people. Now for instence if i stoll someones credit card and used it i would be arrested for grand larceny under the new credit card act even if it was for only using it for $39.95. My whole point is how do these people get away with it so easy.and here i am not even considered middle class being stole from. Wheres the Justice.
I was checking my bank statement online and found $33.28 "pending" from "DRI*ELEMENT5.com"--I have no idea what this is and the amount is very odd. When I got on the Internet to do a search, I found this site and I am logging my complaint also. These are charges applied to my credit card without my knowledge and I am requesting FULL restitution. I am contacting my bank today and also informing them of the fraudulent charges found by a lot of people.
Yesterday [Oct 31, 2008] I noticed TWO entries on my credit account! The only identification was DRI*ELEMENT5.COM. Not having made any purchases on this card [putting me over credit limit, with fees & increased interest rate] I knew this had to be a fraud. Immediately contacted Credit company, cancelled card, but was told if charges were legitimate they would still be applied. Tried the web address of DRI*ELEMENT5.COM and was re-directed to a search engine with hits such as this site. "Must defiantly be a Fraud!", but how can that be with months, years of complaints? Finally tried just ELEMENT5.COM and discovered they are a order processing company for various internet companies. Page allows you to put in e-mail address and last four digits of card number, then you are logged in to your "account".
PCTOOLS.COM was the real aggressor in my case. On Nov 19, 2007, I had PURCHASED (my registration e-mail says so), Registry Mechanic and Spyware Doctor. These were billed thru DRI*ELEMENT5.COM and I never questioned these charges because I had made this purchase. I used the software for a while, but then "strange" things started happening to my computer (other programs not working, changes to settings) due to changes in my registery. I deleated these PCTOOLS software, and wrote it off as a bad investmenbt. Now the billing (once I found it) shows this as a subscription service self renewing EVERY YEAR!!
BUYER BEWARE PCTOOLS is junk software that lures you in thru "free trial" that "identifies" problems, but then requires you to BUY the software before "fixing" the problems. but really causing others! Now to add insult, NO "legalized theft" to injury, call a purchase, a subscription (their website disclosure alludes to IF this program is a subscription but not that it is) They say you can cancel at anytime, but they will only refund for the first 30 days
When i checked my bank statement online last night, i noticed a charge from dri*element5.com for $39. 95 to...
