resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I noticed a charge on my bank account for $139.99 to TLGBUYERSADV49, I called the bank and they gave me a phone number to call, [protected]. I called the number and talked to "Kim" who read me a prepared statement when I asked about the charge, every question I asked was met with a scripted response. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was transferred to "Joe", who proceded to tell me I had cashed a $8.00 check from Pedi-Paws on January 20, 2009 which activated a Buyers Advantage membership. I must admit I got kinda hot with him and he assured me he would issue a refund, I also asked for a copy of the check I alledgedly cashed, which he said he would send me and I should receive in 6-8 weeks. We have received these $8.00 checks from a number of sources and immediately shred them, but we did buy a Pedi-Paws unit - and returned it 24 hours after we got it because it was a piece of junk.
My main question is - has anyone taken action to sue people like Pedi-Paws for giving credit card information to a third party? Sounds like these guys are the main culprits and should be shut down along with Buyers Advantage.
Advice - we bought the Pedi-Paws unit using our debit card, which Pedi-Paws obviously shared with Buyers Advantage and enabled Buyers advantage to make the $139.99 charge to our account. Problem is that once that happens you can't stop it because they have their money immediately and you now have to go through a fraudulent charge process. If you buy online use a credit card where you can challenge the charge before paying the credit card bill. Our debit cards have been cancelled and we are awaiting new ones which I can assure you will never be used inline again.
