    These people are thieves, I should have known it was a scam. What are the odds that one will call a credit card company and always get the same representative. I have already called my bank and they have launched an investigation & they will issue a temp. credit on tomorrow. Now I am about to call Horizon & let them have it!!!

    I was under the impression that it was a real credit card and when I received it, it was a store card, then I called to cancel it and they went all around the subject, telling me I had to activate the card first, then call and cancel and when I go on the web site to do that, I can't get in, so I am stuck with a card I don't want and can't activate. It is real messed up.

    I had improved my credit and signed up for $89.95 only to find out that I didnt get a real credit card and then when I went to go on line I couldn't, so I called the company and got a run around about getting my money back.

    There is alot of people like who want a credit card because of todays economic problems has caused them a problem with their credit and to get a credit card to start over would be such a blessing not with this company this is false advertising and a scam.

    The card is ###. Why would anyone want to pay 89.95 for acard they can't use. Also when I apply my debit card was and overdraft and was not approved, thrre weeks later they debit my card anyway and I have been unable to talk to anyone there. I have sent many e-mails to cancel and I just look at a bank statement where they debit 14.95 monthly fee, if anyone know how to get their money back let me know.

    I'm with everyone else on this one. Except, for me, this was my last hope for christmas money for my girlfriend and family. I was kinda depending on this for me, and it turned out to be a scam. Now I have nothing to give. Works been kinda slow over the winter so my money has gone to rent and food. I hope they know that for just 89 dollars they can cause 1 person so much harm. Was it worth it?

    I am in, so we can catch these ### and hang them from their Nut Sacks because I have also been scammed from these illigitimate Pecker Heads. Does anyone know where their physical address is or if you bought something from them, where the ### is it being shipped out of. Lets get these ### before they get more people and maybe we can get back some restitution.

    I to was scammed. I am mailing the card, cut into pieces, back to them for a full refund. Doubt if I'll get it. I should have looked at this page before I signed up. I do believe they took my $79.95 out of my account while I was still on the website. Does anybody have any answers???

    You have to admit this is a clever scam. too bad we all fell for it. I took a closer look at their "Terms and Conditions". It states you can cancel within 3 days for a full refund. Most people dont realize that those 3 days start when you submit your application. Then it also states you must log into the store website at least once before you can cancel. In order to log in you need the 16 digit account number on the card in which you dont get till at least a WEEK or two after your submitted application. This way they can at least keep $20 of YOUR money.

    I like all of you thought that when I was offered this card it was a real credit card. Like many of you I am a single parent and trying to rebuild my credit. However, I was never told that this was an inter store card. If I hd known this I would nver have agreed to receive it. however I am wondering if any of you have actually accesed your credit limit. Since I just received my card today I have not taken that step to access this card. I have learned from all of you and I will be visiting my bank and using the authorization code with which they received there payment from my account with and i will be informing my bank not to allow any authorization of payment to that account what so ever. I am seriously hoping that this will work. Since it does not sound like I will be purchasig anything from them any time soon, not to mention the fact that this card is literally of no help to me. I refuse to keep a card and pay for itwhen I can not use it. I want to thank all of you for putting this information down in complaint form, it seriously has opened my eyes. Thank each and everyone of you. If there is anything that I can help to do to stop this company and scam please do not hesitate to contact me.
