I am being charged $1.95 / month by this company and another $1.95 by Pro FunSource Monthly for services I have no idea about. I suspect it's related to a "free" subscription for Hydrolyze cream. While ordering the free trial for this under-eye cream the recorded message bombarded me with offers for about six other products I had no interest in and one that came with a "free" $80 gift card for either Targets or Walgreens. I believe I said yes to that offer but it had nothing to do with the products offered by these companies - bicycle lights, is just one example I can remember from their website. THIS IS A SCAM to separate us from our money a little at time like my two $1.95 charges that they probably hoped would go unnoticed for many more months - or $19.95 a month like I see on some other complaints. The company should be put out of business asap because their only "service" is to make people cynical about ordering products over the phone. I might have considered keeping the Hydrolize subscription if it did, indeed, work to remove the bags under my eyes, but now I consider them part and parcel of one big scam and I am cancelling that order today. STAY AWAY FROM PRO VALUE, PRO FUN, AND HYDROLIZE - IT'S NOTHING BUT A SCAM!

Can send bank page if so desired
A charge by this person or organization (which I have never heard of or seen) was made to my Master Card twice this month without my knowledge. I cannot find any information on what this company is or what I owe them for and would appreciate having my name and e-mail, etc. removed from their records immediately.
I do not purchase from unknown companies on line!
Please inform me who this or what this is and how I can remove my name and e-mail from their records.
Bought & downloaded some software for my Zune o 7/25/2010.On 7/26/2010 there was a $1.95 charge that escaped my notice.I have been billed twice by these ### $24.95 in Aug. & Sept.I have notified my CC company to dispute the charges.I also went to ES value Plus Monthly to cancel my membership that I never authorized.The name of the company I downloaded from was DRI cucusoft iphone cardquery.com.Both companies are from minnesota.Coincidence.I doubt it.I'll call them monday morning and see if I can get myh money back.
In July I thought the charge was something my husband did and wanted to pay my credit card before any late fees or penalties. In August I had an identical charge and my husband had no idea what the charge is for either. When I Goggled I it found others had reported as a scam and it lead me to your link.
When I called the phone number on my credit card bill [protected]) the message was "Membership Service". I cannot make lengthily phone calls from work, so tried to call on a weekend. Hours are weekdays and they gave me a website www.programstop.com, which did not work. I finally reached them by phone and told them to cancel and issue a total refund. Katy was vague about what the charge was for and said paperwork would be mailed in a plain envelope from Minnesota to request a refund. I also has to ask her for a confirmation number ([protected]).
Unfortunately before I could reach them another charge was issued against my credit card. I have disputed the 3rd charge and will contact my credit card company about the 2nd and not accepting father charges. Hopefully I will not be out of pocket more than the 1st charge.
Thank you for your assistance in stopping these scams. Jodie Ball 9/13/10

There is no website as indicated on my trial membership letter. The specfic website given: www.valueplusonline.com/open/form/50 does not exsist. I was suppose to recieve my 50$ gift card to walmart from their. This is the only reason I took the trial offer. My trial period is over in 16 days on 8/18/210. So I will cancel my membership as of right now. Hopefully they do not "accidently look over my cancelation" and illegally charge me for this "coupon" service. I should've just said no when i was ordering over the phone. It should be illegal to bribe people with false claims.
This all started with Kevin Trudeau's book. They sign you up for all of this free stuff and promise you savings and all you get are solicitation calls. His method is not saving you money or getting you out of debt...it is simply a scam to get you into debt. I cannot seem to get any of the "gifts" that were promised. A lot of running around. I will chalk it up as a loss and never fall for these tactics again. There seems to be no legit value plus web site and there is no way to contact elizabeth collins. a lesson needs to be learned here and we can start by not partaking in anything these two people are involved in.
I did not authorize charges to WC Value Plus in the amount of $16.95 per month for the past 6 months. Refund demand.

Unauthorized charges to my credit card for coupons/discount service that I never joined nor did I ever received any discount information via mail or email. They have been charging my card $19.95 for at least 10 months. (I know..should have looked but my husband was paying the bills and assumed I signed up for something with and automatic charge.) I called and asked who WC Value Plus was and what product they sold. They stated it was a service that provided me with discounts on various items and services. I told them I did not authorize such a membership or charge and to cancel. I also asked for my money back. They said a form would be mailed in 7 to 10 days. He also gave me a confirmation number. We'll see.

I received a letter from Elizabeth Collins, Director of Marketing that
stated to go on website www.valueplusonline.com/open/form/50 to
receive my FREE $50.00 Walmart gift card for signing up to try
VALUE PLUS. I also was not able to get anywhere to request my
gift card and no website comes up for your info. or where it asks you
to enter your subscriber number that was on the letter.
Is this a scam? It's false advertisement to get people to sign up and
convience people to sign up and you will receive a $50.oo free
gift card from Walmart.
Where do we go from here, please advise this is not right.

I ordered the "Potty Patch" for my puppy online. As I was finishing up my order a window kept popping up offering me "free gas" & a "Wal-Mart" gift card. I denied this offer and tried to finish my order. This offer widow popped up at least 5-6 times and I kept refusing. Finally, I finished my order and the "offer" stopped popping up.
The following evening at around 8:30 pm someone called to verify my order for the "Potty Patch". I was not home and my husband took the call. They offered him an even better deal. You know how it goes, if you keep denying these offers they offer more to get you interested. my husband told them "no". Well, they went even further with the offer. They told him we would receive a $50.00 gas card in the mail along with a $50.00 Wal Mart gift card--no strings attatched. They said that we could use the cards and only after 14 days of receiving them we would be charged a small fee of $30.00 per month on MY debit card. They also told my husband that we could cancel the offer within the 14 day trial period. For one, no one, including my husband is allowed to authorize any purchases, etc... on my debit card. For two, I had told these people repeatedly that I did NOT want their offer. Who in their right mind would believe that you could receive something worth more than what they are supposedly going to charge you. Also, the Potty Patch cost me a little under $50.00, so why would they send me more than what I just paid out.
I received 2 different letters in the mail from ValuePlusOnline on Friday, Feruary 5, 2010 (mind you--not 2 gift cards as was told would receive). These letters stated that they had charged my debit card 2 $1.95 trial fees and that on [protected] thay will be charging me 2 more subscriber fees of $24.95 and every 30 days thereafter.
I am so sick of these scam artists taking advantage of people. My husband and I receive SSI (which barely covers our bills every month) and my debit card is for child support arrears for my daughter who is now 23. It took me over 15 years just to start receiving "anything" and the amount put on my debit card each month is less than $110.00 per month. This in no way covers what it costs to raise a child for 18 years.
I am so thankful to whoever started this website and will be sure to pass the information along to others. Hopefully this will help others who are in the same situation and cannot afford to be scammed.
