Smart Saving CenterFraud

I'm so sorry for all these people who were ripped off. I was also ripped off by another company fairly recently. Today, I got the feeling that I should check my bank account. i went online and noticed that smart savings center charged me $1. I remember the first time we were ripped off, the first charge was $1. So, I immediately called my bank and had my card cancelled. They said that this one of the biggest phishing scams out there right now. I think they got my info from a spyware infection because I had to turn off my protection for about an hour, and this happened right during that time. Keep in mind, the only thing that I purchased online was my wedding rings and I called the company to verify that it wasn't them, and they assured me it wasn't. Plus it says right in their privacy statement that they don't give out your information. I printed the terms of use and privacy statement just in case. So, this being my fault in just not possible. Anyways, glad I caught them in the act. The last company that did this to us got us for thousands +intrest and over the limit fees...
Good luck to everyone trying to get their money back!

    Unfortunately if they have your account info - you gave it to them.

    Probably internet shopping and FAILURE TO PAY ATTENTION to the information provided.

    it could have been a survey, money off current order, or missed the checked box while checking out.


    I know because I have seen all 3 and I am very careful to READ everything and make sure that check boxes are unchecked.

    The same thing happend to me. I didnt fill out any membership and out of the blue i get a $1.00 Charge. Amazon needs to tighten up its A game letting crooks like this onthere website. If your going to rob me at least be man enough to use a gun or a knife, then i can see whose doing me at least. This is why i hate plastic and shopping online.

    I ordered a book through hotbooks.com and started getting the $ 1.00 monthly charge. I never agreed to any type of membership and finally was able to get the SmartSavingsCenter.com to stop charging me. I had my credit card company reverse the charge two months in a row and finally got through (most of the attempts were to place me on hold in la-la land) and cancelled the membership. I guess I will have to wait and see if this actually happens. These crooks are in south Florida and I can only imagine how many people are being screwed in this deal.

    Watch out, they are scam artists. Make sure you know what you are getting into before buying.
