TWX*Sports Illustrateddid not order

Just got off the phone with my bank for the exact same thing. $24.54 taken from my account without authorization. How does this happen? How can they get it through without the security code from the back of the card? So frustrating! Now I have to go and get a temporary debit card and switch all automatic debits to the new card. I just did this 2 months ago for the exact same reason!!! I am very careful who I do business with on the internet. I don't give out my information via email or over the phone. How are they getting it?

    This just happened to me as well. I was charged $55.44. This is ridiculous. I filed my complaint.
    Thank you for saying something so that I knew I wasn't the only one.

    TWX sports illustrated did it to me too. $55.44 credit card charge. I disputed the charge with my credit card company right away, hope it works.

    I did not give twx sports illusrtated permission to charge anything to my credit card, i think it's a shame for such a conglomerate to put themselves out their in the public eye for fraud. I am so pissed off i was on my way to get gas and my card was declined, so i went home got on my laptop and checked my b alance there was a pending transaction from twx sports illustrated. So i cncelled my card for a new one, and i filed a dispute!!!

    I agree. I just got two unmarked envelopes in the mail that just looked like credit card offers. I opened them up and they both said "Thank you for your gift order of 56 issues of Sports Illustrated on 11/4/11!"I checked my bank account and had been charged $110.88 on 11/4/11 as TWX* SPORTS ILLUST. Last year I had ordered these two as gifts and they renewed them for another year WITHOUT MY AUTHORIZATION! I am so pissed! I was going to renew later with the gift rate of $49.00 for the two, but instead they charged my account $110.88 for the two renewals! I am pissed!!! I am going to demand my money back and not renew at any rate! This is total BS!

    Finally after 20 minutes on hold, they said that they automatically renew all orders placed with a credit or debit card! I am outraged. They credited my account the $110.88 (which I should receive in the next 7-10 business days!) and said that they were sorry. Give me a break. What a scam!

    I did not authorize any transaction from my checking account. When I signed up for the subscription I was told it was free and NOTHING would be charged to my account. I would like my money back, and the amount for my checking account being over drafted because of this unauthorized transaction.
