I was contacted by "Unified Services" in May from [protected]. A young man informed me that I've won a $1000 internet Shopping Spree and a vacation. He then asked for my bank account number because I needed to pay $1.95 for shipping of the package.
I hesitated, and he called his supervisor who assured me that my bank would not let them deduct more then $1.95 from my account. Lie!
A week later my checking account was slapped with $149.80 and I also had a $25 NSF charge added to the amount. I was horrified. The check was made out to "Unified Services".
I contacted my bank, then this company. They told me to submit claim to their refund department. I did. The department denied my refund. I am angry and disappointed. I am planning on contacting my attorney general and file a complaint.
UNNIFIED SERVICE IS A TOTAL SCAM.EVERY PERSON WHO HAS GOT CHEATED MUST NOT LEAVE THEM.I HAVE GOT THEIR CONTACT.THEY OPERATE FROM THEIR KOLKATA INDIA OFFICE.THE OWNER IS AMIT CHAKRABORTY.

THEY CHANGE YOUR VOICE RECORDING FROM 1.95 DOLLORS TO 149.80 DOLLORS.I HAVE MADE THE COMPLAINT TO MAINE ATTORNEY GENERAL.
Someone saying he's from Unified Services had called me sometime in May/ june and inquired my interest in some of their services. They got my bank details and said they would deduct a small amount for postal. On my return to US I found to my horror that I had nearly 400 dollars taken off my bank over the period. 69.93 every month.
Looks like I was supposed to call them up and cancel the service and I didnt know that some amount will be deducted every month. So here I am loosing nearly 400 dollars. I am not getting any value out of it now and they say they would not refund me. This is NOT a good way of getting customer by not giving enough information and having a transaction over phone. I am looking for a refund but the customer care rep says nothing can be done... Please be aware.

i was contacted by this company and was assurred this was no gimmick and would only be charged a one time s&h fee off 1.95 for a 1000.00 online shopping spree they charged my account 195.80 and i have never even recieved a piece of mail what a rip off hope everyone who is scammed fights back and runs them out of business
9/16/07 I received a call that i won a 1,000.00 gift cert- , but to my surprise i had to pay 1.95. Very persistent i just gave in thinking boy did i mess up. should have went with my gut and hung up.. Received diet pills (i don't need, I weigh 90 lbs). and a certificate that i can not use the products or more than the item is worth+SH fees. I got my statement in today. $149.80 was drafted from my account with out permission, it threw me into overdraft. PLEASE HELP!!! GO to unified services and there you will find complaint after complaint, same thing.
I am lucky enough to see this forum in time. Just like others, i did get a call asking for 1.95$ and the guy was trying to be really polite. He had all my information along with my bank's routing number. He wanted he number for my checking account. I kept on asking him, how did i get into this, when i never left my information anywhere but that idiot kept on giving me lame reasons that looked convincing at that time. Anyhow i was never gonna give my account number but still he managed to take the time to call me. I am saved because i had doubts and also i got to see this forum which proved be really helpful. But these as***** must be stopped robbing innocent people who could fall easily to their trap.
Before you start reading this seemingly pointless post I would like to tell you that there is a reason for...
I just found out today 6/30/07 that my account is in a negative balance, i went to my bank today to find out what extra charges were. Here i find unified service's deducted money in the negative balance. So what i am doing is copying some of your complaints and giving it to my bank as live proof on paper to get an easy dispute. And for all of you unfortunate people that fell for the same scam i did, this is getting reported to our states F.B.I unit in Albany, N.Y. to the Internet Fraud Department. And to all the people in same situation I would advise for you all to do the same.
Sincerely Jennifer E. DiLallo from N.Y.
I received a call from John from Unified Services telling me the same thing everyone else has been saying. ...
Somehow a company called Unified Services had my name, address and phone number. They called me last night telling me that i had won a $1000.00 shopping spree and a vacation. He kept asking me for my checking account number because i had to pay 1.95 shipping and handling. i was suspicious so i told him i didn't have a checking account. He asked me if a family member did and i said no. Although i told him a had no checking account he kept trying to talk me into giving him my account number. Eventually he realized that he would not get anything from me and he hung up (Nick #2709) They called my mother too but she said she is not interested and hung up on them. I looked them up on better business bureau and saw that they were making unauthorized charges to peoples account for not 1.95, but for $140.80. Scam!!
Today I received a phone call from a 'Mark Doca' He said he was calling from "Unified Services"...
First off, this company called me and an indian guy that i could barely understand, started off by reciting...
Thank God I googled this company while I was on the phone with them and found this site. UNIFIED SERVICES called me from the following number: [protected] and I was speaking to an Indian man who called himself "Cody Wilson." He tried to reassure me that this was not a ripoff by providing an address, phone number, Employee ID number, and BBB registration number.
I refused to give him any information, but somehow he already knew my name, my old address (which I did not correct for him) and my direct line at work - I don't give this number out.
Anyway, I did not give him any personal banking or financial info!
Beware of this company - UNIFIED SERVICES! These people call my house every other day this past week wanting...
This morning I was called by an unknown number the y promised me a $1000 online gift card and a 3 day 2 night trip if i tried a online service, long distance service, and a fat burner (thermo something...). They ask for your account number but assure you will only be charged 1.95 for shipping .I have seen that they then continue to charge you more because they have your account number. I even told these people that I was on my way to do volunteer work ! What great morals some people have!
Approximately 2 weeks ago I had been contacted by a young man named "Max Johnson" for Unified Service...
