    Central Rewards aka ultimate Savings Plus aka Great Magazine Valuegift card/magazine subscription scam

    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.

        Value Pluscredit card scam

        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.

            You must claim those gifts and offers, they won't just send them to you, though they do claim they will send a welcome packet. I haven't received mine yet but it's only been a week. I did get my subscriber number and can access all the rebate forms and gift offers online. I've never found a service like this that automatically cancels itself, they always depend on you forgetting to cancel. Good that you caught it in four months instead of four years.

          Value PlusNo $20 in cash or $50 in Gift cards

          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!!!

              You could have contacted the company at any time by calling their customer service phone number and asked for your membership #. There is indeed a website at www.valueplusonline.com You used a comma instead of a period in the company information at the top of your post. When you go to the website it is annoying that you have to download a "request form" for the $20 cash rebate and the $50 walmart gift cards and fill them out and mail them back. More annoying is that it says "please allow 8 to 10 weeks for delivery". Lastly, the welcome packet was supposed to arrive after 2 weeks but it has been over 3 weeks for me and still nothing. I think they do deliberately wait for you to get your packet after the 30 day trial period and end up charging many people money. I have been told that even if I cancel withing the trial period I should get my $20 rebate and the $50 gift card even if I send in the request form AFTER I cancel my membership, but who knows? Guess it will take 10 weeks to find out.

              That pretty much sums up my experience as well. After a week of signing up, I called the number, got my subscriber number and downloaded the forms and put them in the mail. If you click "Welcome Gift" at the top of the screen it will automatically check the status of those forms or give you the option to print them. The form for the $50 Walmart card does say that you must "Return this Request Form to receive your Selection Form for a $50.00 Gift Card." So the form is not to get the Walmart card, but to get ANOTHER form to get the Walmart card. You can also purchase up to $100 worth of gift cards for 20% off, not a bad deal, but I'm not confident I would receive them, so I'll not take a chance. I'll give it another week and then cancel. BTW, when calling the service number you are usually greeted with, "Would you like to cancel your account?" The few times I have talked to reps they seemed quite helpful. We'll see when I actually begin the cancelation process.

            Value Plus MonthlyUnauthorized charges

            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.

                I have the exact same problem. That charge of 19.95 appeared on my AMEX account this morning. I called the number listed on the charge and still don't know what it is or what they do. They agreed to remove the charge but I have listed the charge as "disputed" with AMEX just in case they don't remove it.

                I have had two unauthorized charges to AMEX from this company, for what, I have no idea. I went to the website to cancel whatever "account" they think I have with them, but will handle this further through AMEX and state Attorney General for refund of unauthorized charges. BEWARE: I was recently foolish enough to have made a puchase by phone from a TV infomercial, and the Value Plus charges have appeared since then. More than coincidence???

                i just got charged twice both times for the same amount of 39.95 from 2 different people one that had a number and the Kaydensupport.com Consett GB which gave no number no email no way of contacting the first charge with the number was able to be dropped fairly quickly with little to no real dispute on their part which is...very weird but alright. so the first charge will be down i a few days but they only had record could see the one charge and had no idea where the other one came from which upsets me greatly because i am now out of 80 dollars and i didn't even purchase anything, this is down right virtual theft. so of course i reported the charges to my bank and now my card is cancelled and since its a Friday I must wait til Tuesday to revive my new card with new number...and that express too which means 11.50 shipping express fee is now gone from me as well. this all happened earlier today so both charges are still pending and i cant yet file a fraud claim until the money is taken and no longer pending so it will be a while untill i actually get my 80 dollars back...this is a strange reality that we live in unfortunately

                its not that i don't know how to use a credit card online the simple fact is that these pending charges just appeared i did not purchase anything online or offline earlier today and as i said before i explained this to one of the people whose number was on the pending charge and so they will be dropping it in a few days but as for the origin and how they got my information i am at a loss and have no idea how or where they got it which is why my card is now deactivated as we speak

              Value PlusScary Info Found

              I sent for a free Pharmacy Discount Card. Before using it, I called the [protected] www.pharmacydicountnetwork.com number. I was told this card is good at any pharmacy EXCEPT Walmart. I called Walmart Pharmacist who had never heard of this 'provider'. oddly, ValuePlus told me since I'm in WA. they have a stimulus package & would like to send me a WALMART gift card for $80...free. Then they wanted my personal info. Several times I declined until I heard what's involved. Finally I was told it would cost me $1.00 to receive a 2 week benefits in their saving club. I said no. She persisted. I went online where I found many complaints of fraud, & no one gettiing money refunded. Told her this news. Then she told me I'd been selected for a free cruise, free meals, free travel. Again I declined and hung up. Online The BBB.org for MN lists the parent company as Provell, Inc. a BBB member! out of 790 complaints in the last 3 yrs. BBB closed 338 in 12 mo. Out of 790 complaints 451 were billing/collection issues. The Company is headquartered in Mn yet the state does not allow their products, services to be available to residence, according to ValuePlus small print. Next Googled [protected] and found this biz goes by many names...DiscountMed4You--RXSaveUSA-TrueRxSavings--MedCardRx, and *many* more. READ about ValuePlusOneline.com Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions. What an eye opener. You have NO privacy to your personal info once you sign up & sign in. Read very carefully what you allow this co. to keep on file & share with all their vendors. Your credit card info, IP address, name, phone, home addy, age, sex, where you click, how long you stayed in page, even your pc hardware, software info. Claim they need this from you to protect Provell from fraud. You have zero protection from your info being used in this way. Just visiting ANY of their subsidiary and network sites means 3rd party is given your personal info, to use for future credit card processing, marketing, surveys, sweepstakes. Their site says so. You'll also allow their biz partners to now offer similar services, & others within their Provell network. Besides cookies being allowed download to your pc t for tracking your every move, you will have "webbeacons" to offer you specialized offers to pop up. Again, READ carefully ALL the tiny print at the bottom of the page. These by the way can change without notice and the fact you are still using the site even without any purchase, you now agree to all new changes in policy. Needless to say...I will not use my free Discount Card to save $ since this in the end would be too great a price at any cost. Do your investigating and stay safe.

                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.

                  Sem Value Plus MNFunds withdrawn without providing services

                  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 have no idea who or what these charges are for. When I called the company, the customer service person didn't know either! They claim that they have a recording with our authorization, but they couldn't produce it. The best defense against this company is to cancel the credit card and to file a fraud complaint with the credit card company.

                      Value Plus — Scam

                      Doing my taxes and looking at my bank statement. I had noticed that Value Plus had been taking out $24.95 but...

                      SEM*HOMEPLAY/SEM*HOMEVALUEPLUS/PRO*VALUEPLUS/PRO*HOMEPLAYUnauthorized charges

                      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.

                        Dri Value Plus MonthUnauthorized Charge

                        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 was charged $24.99 and do not know why. I cancelled an order previously from a company who said I would have to cancel from other companies. But since I cancelled them I never received the packet to know who I need to cancel from. I do not wish to continue with this company and want my money back.

                          Value Plus/Funsource — fraud

                          Sem - Value Plus?sem - Fun SourceUnapproved charges on visa card

                          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!

                              I have had the same thing happened to me and would charge me $24.95 for Fun source and Value Plus. I have no idea what these charges are and did not agree to anything of a sort. I have contacted SEM FunSource directly to ask for a refund of my $50 and we'll see if it works if not I'll have to contact the Attorney General and The Better Business Bureau.
