This company made out a fake electronic check for $49.95 and are sending me a "secret credit card". I got a copy of the check from my bank and it is definitely a good fraud, however you can't read the phone number to call them and yell and scream and etc . The bank is going to refund my money but still the hassle of having to get the whole thing straightened out, get the money back, deal with the people who think you're a liar and nutty as well. I for one and sick of it. I have lost a lot of money to these scammers, if they get any more then they might as well take the rags I'm wearing too cause I won't be able to buy anything to replace what's gone.

    I, too, have been promised a refund of my monies from EVERPRIVATECARD.com for a withdrawal from my account that I never authorized. I was told to complete a refund form on-line, which I did, and my refund would be sent to my home address instead of being credited back to my account.

    This was back in August of 2006. It is now March, 2008. STILL AWAITING REFUND. HOWEVER, MY

    REFUND AMOUNT IS FOR $59.95.

    I am still in receipt of all papers forward to this fraudent company requesting my refund and their responses to each and what I should do to obtain it.

    THESE PEOPLE HAVE SENT ME A LETER SAYING THAY ARE SUING ME FOR FUNDS THAT I NEVER EVEN APPIED FOR. THIS IS THE FIRST INFORMATION I HAVE EVER RECEIVED FROM THEN, THE FIRST TIME I EVEN HEARD OF THEM. THEY HAVE SAID THAT THEY HAVE SENT ME PAPERS AND I HAVE NOT EVEN RCEIVED ANY FROM THEM. AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINING OF SEVERAL FRAUDULENT PROBLEMS I HAVE. TAKE NOTE: EVEN IF YOU CHANGE YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER WITH YOUR BANK, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE MONEY OUT OF YOUR ACCOUNT. THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THIS IS TO CHANGE BANKS!!!!!!!

    I too have been a victim of Everprivate. Back in June I saw a debit of $49.95 from my account that was withdrawn on their check #9999. To make a very long story short, after I threatened them through various e-mails, oh incidentally if you do want to e-mail a CSR there, [email protected] This guy works for Everprivate. And if you want to complain to their bank which is what I did, it's New Dominion Bank 1100 Kentworth Ave Charlotte, NC 28204 and their account # 2009405. I got this information from their check. I requested a copy from my bank. I wrote their fraud department a long letter explaining what they did. And that they check for my $49.95 that they sent to me bounced. Keep on complaining.

    Same thing happened to me. I did not authoirze the money, my bank account went into the negative and I had bounced checks. After many exchanges they said they would send a refund. That was over a month ago and no refund! ANYTHING WE CAN DO?

    I have went to this site again and nothing about filling out form to revive refund from checking account. It is also read on emial that if card is not activated then you will receive refund. I have not received card and am not going to activate it either which says I can get refund from checking account.

    (The card gets canceled automatically if you have not activated it.) this is what it says in email. So take care of it please. Lynn Taylor.

    I was down on my luck night and I decided to apply for a payday loan, I applied for a loan on this site: www.christianfaithfinancial.com and after importing my information, I got over 60 pop-ups and a blast of e-mails with-in 15 minutes. I was afraid and I knew that something was wrong. 2 weeks later I saw on my online banking site that my accounted has been overdrawn and I needed to pay draft fees. My account was empty prior and my over draft protection plan paid a company with the code #999 $59.95 and I was charged that and another $50 for fees. I had the back to run a trace and it came up as everprivate secret credit card services, I called the telephone number and it's a steady recording, their e-mail bounces back. I filed an affidavit at the bank along with the bbb, we argued back and fourth, they kept responding that I gave them my info, they even posted my IP and bank info and then said the company www.christianfaithfinancial.com is where I ok'd this charge. you can check this link, it says nothing about paying a fee, it says Pay day loans, why would I just give my money away, when i need it? then they told me in response that I would get a refund in 10 days, I never got it. or any loan, this site was built to snatch information and trick BBB and other sites that we authorized this charge, by showing IP and other info that you could have gave them, but the site you were on was entirly diffrent. here is the BBB report on this comany here is the actual name:

    Private Date Finder, LLC
    2935 Hierro
    San Clemente, CA 92673
    Contact: Josh Finer

    Complainants generally allege that they received unauthorized drafts from this company for $49.95 for a product that they did not order or were applying for pay day loans and were subsequently charged for this service which they did not agree to. Some complained that they never received any debit card from the company.

    The company generally responds by providing refunds and stating that while applying service such as cash advance loan applications customer legally authorized us to debit his bank account and that they have authorization details including the computer number (IP) etc.

    I too was had my account hit I have contacted there web site filled out the form and have heard nothing. It makes it worse when you file a fraudulent report with the bank any way in Utah they have you get a police case number and the cops are treating you like you have stolen when it is the other way around. I like many others applied for a payday loan it was payday loans so they are the ones who are in with this everprivatecard stealing our money and then the overdraft fees.

    I have to say I'm another one! I just got the bad news on Friday about my bank account has an NSF, now when I do get my check I have to pay the bank $35.00 fee plus $5.oo a day my account is overdrawn and the $49.99. Who the hell are these people and what gives them the right to take private information to go into my account to take MY money? I'm just living on benefits, far as I know these people may be rich with a job. If they're not rich, well by the look of this web site, they sure in the hell are now!!! These people did the same thing to my daughter a few months ago and she's still waiting for them to return the money, oh yeah, she never got that damn card either. I retried EverPrivateCards link again now it won't let me in. If any one knows how to stop these people from this scam of innocent people please by all means let me know. They've got their own money they don't need mine, plus now my money is stolen!!

    Since there has been no success with anyone going after this company and these crooks i took it as a personal mision to put a stop to them. I would like everyone to read the email i sent to jerry Klein and Josh Finer this morning on 7/13/07 at 10:30 am:

    Mr. Finer

    Please inform Mr. Klein that as of this morning at 9:45am CST my local field office of the FBI is now investigating this matter fully and extensively. I have included in my package of details his name, your name Mr. Finer, your involvement with Swish marketing in California, your group of websites that are all registered privately through godaddy.com and other services as well as the bank account information with T Bank in Dallas and all of the personal information regarding you and mr. Klein i have as well. I told you yesterday that i was not messing around and while no one to this point has apparently been successful to find a government agency that cares enough to stop you from stealing money from people your ride is coming to end so enjoy it while it lasts. Have a nice day.

    William Burdick

    P.S. Do not bother emailing me back. Tell mr. Klein if my number wasn't important enough for him to keep then I guess we have nothing left to say to each other. And don't bother trying to deny any of the previous allegations because it has all been proven.

    O.k. complaining on a message board does not do us any good. I too have been a victim of this company, and still fighting to get them to refund $45 in NSF fees because their check bounced. You need to file a complaint with the CA Attorney General's Office, the BBB and Federal Trade Commission. Also, this company is based out of CA so go online and do a search for news channels in CA. Send an e-mail to the media which is what I did. The more people come forward the more chances we have of putting Everprivate out of business.

    I too applied for a payday loan and 2 days later had $54.95 taken out of my bank without my knowledge or consent from everprivatecard. Obviously, this scam company goes by several other names. This has been going on for months it seems. Why hasn't the government shut them down??? I am waiting to see if i get a refund. They said within 10 days. I told them 5 or i am calling the BBB, the FBI or anyone else i can to help stop these crooks. Good luck to everyone.

They hit me for $54.00+ and I like everybody else complaining on this site am also having a hard time getting in contact with this BANK ROBBERS WHO CALL THEM SELF SECRET CASH CARD SERVICE. I THINK THE ONLY SECRET IS THE WAY THEY ARE STEALING FROM THE BANKS BY USING US.

    I JUST received my refund CHECK in the amount of 49.95, however, I am waiting for the check to clear, because I don't trust this company AT ALL. I really would like to have something done so that so many consumers are not MISLEAD by these illegal transactions - or rather, if they MAY BE MISLEADING transactions. Either way, I do believe that if this company cannot inform the US consumer correctly and most directly of what will be happening with their account, they should no longer be in business. Period.

    Here is their account info:

    Customer service: [protected]. This check is # 2049 dated on June 3rd, 2007 (which I DID NOT RECEIVE UNTIL TODAY).

    I was looking for a paydayloan online when everprivatecard announce that will be approve in a hurry, but when they took my bank information they send me a message state that the offer wasn't available in my area so i quit. What was my surprise when couples days later they debited my account for $49.95 without my authorization. After fight for my money back they agree to refund my money but they will send a check that will take up to ten days. What kind of abuse is this to us the customers. Why they don't refund me the same way they took my money. Directing the refund to my checking account. If you are one of those like me with the same problem go direct to this email: www.secretcashcardservice.com/cgi-bin/refund.cgi and you follow the instructions. Don't go through the ordinary customer service of this company because while you're claiming your money, they are earning interest for them...

    I don't believe the banks are letting these scammers getaway with this. Maybe if the banks would kind of keep an eye open and do something, especially when, I get customer brings it to their attention and they look at you like it's all your fault. They have this little note on their ad that says "No charge if this is canceled before 30 days are up. It's happened to me twice!!!

    Evercard did this to me 3 times and I got charged 3 times for NSF. The CEO Finer and Klein are not reachable. The phone numbers state they are involved with Virtual Works.com (Finer) and Newaccountnumber.com (Klein)

    I have reported this to the state attorney general, the police and my local TV station. My nephew is an FBI agent and I will be speaking with him to see what else I can do for all of us. My bank account is now negative 284.15 which constitutes a felony of bank fraud, internet fraud and mail fraud. They cannot get away with this since more than 76,000 people have become victims of this scam. This makes it a big time felony.
