They put a popup on my cpmputer and when I click "x" to close, they say I agree to a $1.95/mo charge on my credit card!
GO TO WWW.FTC.GOV, America's new Consumer Protection Bureau to file a complaint
Hi there. I too was also scammed by these low lifes! i did get one of the charges dropped as a "courtesy" (yeah right a courtesy?!) I then immediately called my bank and cancelled my debit card to ensure no future charges be made to my account. Interesting how these ### made three charges within 2 days on one another. I did get call from their audio dept. They had altered my conversation completely. they left out out my statements that I did not wish to receive any of their products; enroll in any of their subscriptions or have anything charged to the account they had me verify. i did write to my Attorney General's office and would ask all of you to do the same. You can file an electronic complaint on line. It only takes a few minutes. i am hoping if enough of us do this some action will be taken. These losers need to get a job/life and stop leeching off of the rest of the hardworking population.

I found an unauthorized charge of $24.95 from WC *Mon ValuePlus Tom.[protected]@SMN on one of my credit cards, charges incurred July 13, 2011. I never authorized this charge...do not even know a thing about this person or business. I am filing this complaint and also calling my credit card company to dispute the charge.
Was apparently offered 30-day free trial of Value Plus Service, sold as a discount program for products and services by Kaymaro, 4/20, a vender in CA. Was charged $24.95 on 5/20; 6/20 and 7/20, 2011 and received NO services, discounts or products from Value Plus.
I consider all these charges fraudulent and part of a credit card scam.
My wife accepted this offer but considered the so called Value Plus cancelled when she returned $79.70 worth of product from the original Kaymaro order for a mere $29.95 credit to our Fidelity American Express card.
What in the hell happened to the integrity of this nation. Everyone is lying about gift cards or shopping...
I was charged for the service and when I finally got the packet, which arrived after the first 30 days, so they could charge my account I went on line to find nothing. The web address they gave me in the letter does not exist and nothing is even close to it. All the promises that the letter made for $20 in cash and $50 in gift cards was just a scam and now that it is past the 30 day free trial period they have charged my account on the 31st day right after the free trial ran out. It does not matter that they waited until 30 days to send you anything, I guess so that you would not find out that they are a big scam. I would like what was promised to me, the $20 in cash and $50 in gift cards and I am stopping any further account withdrawls.
This company is a big fraud and should be put out of busssiness!!!
I have been charged $24.95 a month from VALUE PLUS MONTHLY for the last 9 months without signing up for anything from them. I called and canceled which they had no problem with. They didn't try to talk me out of it which I find suspicious. I contacted my credit card company told them I canceled it and asked how to stop/block them from continuing to charge me each month. I was told they can't block any charges and I would have to dispute each charge every month. I asked if I got a new card from them with a new account number would that keep them from charging the card. They said since they had an authorized charge number it would carry over to the new card. I then asked how they could get an authorized charge number when I didn't sign up with them. This is what they said:
Someone would have provided them with your account information. From what I've seen on other accounts, this company is usually an additional service that is added when you order online or over the phone from another merchant. If you don't unselect the offer then it is billed automatically.
Unauthorized charges placed monthly on my credit card, $19.58, $19.59, $19.75. Have never ordered a product from this company and have no idea what they even sell, nor where/how they got my CC information. According to my bank which is reversing the charges they are in Minnetonka, Minnesota and claim the charges are for some "subscription". <---- ?? (Must be membership subscription charges for VP's expenses in ripping people off.) Their are multiple complaints about this company across the Web, a Bing search will bring up more than can be read in one day.
3/7/11 $24.95 was withdrawn from my bank account. When I called the reference number on my bank statement, I was told that I had agreed to a 30-day free trial for something and failed to call and cancel within the thirty-day time frame. I went through my mail, my e-mail and personal notes, not finding anything like this. 4/5/11 again $24.95 was withdrawn from my bank account. This time I called the bank. They advised me to call the number and get as many details as possible to clear this up. When calling [protected], I was told that they were only a distribution company, had no idea who they were collecting money for and since I had twice allowed money to be withdrawn from my account, I would have to sign a document to have my account cancelled and my funds returned. The woman asked for my name and address then said that the form would be mailed to me in a white envelope which I should receive in 8 to 10 days, to sign and return it and they would take care of it for me. I asked who had authorized these charges. The woman said she could not tell me for my own protection. That apparently I had agreed to a 30-day free trial period to get an $80 grocery discount and failed to cancel the membership within that 30 days. After reading the complaints at this website, I recalled ordering some CDs from TimeLife off the television and wonder if that is where this solicitor got my name, address and bank account number. I intend to complain to TimeLife.
I have no idea why these charges are on my charge card bill. I never knowingly agreed to any kind of service from this company. I want these charges removed from my bills. I would like to know why the charges are on my bill and what gave anyone the right to begin charging me a monthly fee. I have never knowingly bought from a buying service that charged a monthly fee and I want this stopped immediately and my money returned. I feel this is fraud and insist that this be corrected immediately. jld

Folks - If you are assisting elderly parents with bills, like I am, please look for unauthorized shopper discount monthly charges. Watch for these companies to change names like PRO*HOMEPLAY and PRO*VALUE changed their name to SEM*HOMEPLAY and SEM*VALUEPLUS in December 2010. I found at least 6 other different discount services on my parents' credit card - all listed as merchandize on the credit card. They can obtain your credit card through unscrupulous Internet retailers who may post a checked box on the page where you finish a transaction or offer discounts on future sales. Some claim they sent a $5 check and it was cashed. My folks are in their 80s and never received membership or benefit information, which may be required by some state laws. Some other names are AP9*SHOPPING ESSENTIAL, which I believe changed its name to MVQ*SHOPESSPLUS, which now is called MVQ*SHOPPINGESSENTIAL. Other names are SHOPPERDISCOUNT.COM, GREAT FUN, and NORM THOMPSON REWARDS. While I post this as a problem for the elderly, it can happen to anyone at any age. It happened to me when I bought some clothing and the retailer would not let me complete the transaction without checking the box. Fortunately, I caught it after two months of charges. Please consider helping your elderly parents make sure they are not subject to this . These companies know something is wrong because they 1) change names without notifying the member and 2) an alleged "member" never uses the service over a long period of time. Thanks for reading.
This company removed $24.95 from my bankaccount with out my premisson. When I called Dri Value Plus Monthly
I was at first told that "they" could not release that infomation, whan I asked for a supervisor I was then told that I had ordered something on line and signed up, when in fact I did not! When I asked what it was for I was told it was for a 'membership" I asked what kind and was told. by the supervisor "Derrick operator number 70471 that he could not tell me what membership. I asked for my funds to be returned to my bank account and was told by Derrick OP number 70471.
He would mail the forms in 7 to 10 days. Not acceptable. So I filled a complant with my Bank. they are checking into it and will refund my moneys, AND WILL get theys back from this SCAM of a comany called Dri Value Plus Monthly.
So I say to you now LOOK at your bank account and if this SCAMMER got you go to your bank & file a report. then call your State police and file with them

I stopped at Cumberland Farms and put $150.00 on my Visa debit card. This money was for my bills. I then called in my Visa account on the way home(30min drive)and was told I had a balance of $342.58. Within approx 30 minutes I arrived home and called Verizon to pay my $310.00 cable bill. The payment would not go through. I hung up and called Visa and was told my balance was now $292. I requested assistance and was told that there were 2 charges made on my card for $24.98. I did not approve these charges nor did I make these charges. I was in the car on the way home to pay a bill. I put just enough on the card to pay the bill. I am a single mother, my husband walked out on my 2 kids an I. I was hysterical, $50 is alot of money to us until I get back on my feet. I want this straightened out. Please!
