    I have tried three separate times since the beginning of 2011 to get $50 gift cards for Funsource...and for ValuePlus. I have written personal letters and called the toll free customer service number. I was told that they sent selection forms to my address several times...interestingly that's the only mail I've ever heard of that I've never gotten. My last correspondence with them suggested they send it to me certified mail or at least 'delivery confirmation'. That was 7/3/2012. Haven't heard from anyone. I got into this by ordering Walkfit orthotics through the TV ad...I have sent them a letter also saying I would not recommend them because of their association with this SCAM

    I was just charged $24.95 and I called the # from my checking account. The woman on the line said I authorized this. I most certainly did NOT and I have no idea who these people are. I cancelled and demanded they refund the money, she said they would process a refund within 3 to 5 business days and gave me a confirmation #. Now I just wait. How do companies get away with this crap?!?!

Resolved fraudulent

I responded to this companys invitation to try their services for free for 30 days. Without any obligation...

Resolved Unauthorized Charges to Credit card

I noticed two charges from this company on my credit card - I did not subscribe to them - I do not live in...

Resolved illegal charges

I received my credit card statement this month with 2 unauthorized charges on it. One for HOMEPLAY MONTHLY [protected] FOR $16.95 and one from VALUE PLUS MONTHLY [protected] for $21.95! These companies should be investigated and punished to the full extent of the law! The charges were completely erronious! Something has to be done about this! In checking the internet I found that there were many, many complaints! I cannot see any difference between what they have done and someone stealing your credit card and illegally using it! This is CREDIT CARD FRAUD by all legal standards!

Resolved Company doesnt exist

This is a fraudulent company it is offered through the abclimber company as a entertainment card they will debit your account. You will never receive anything from them, when you call the 800 number it will direct you to this website, I had to close my checking account and open a new one just to stop a 24.95 charge. Abclimber will not assist you if you call them with this issue they will tell you they are just a third party and there is nothing they can do. I cant believe people how easy it is to get away with stuff like this and we the consumers are the ones that are treated like criminals when we call the companies and try to correct their wrong

    Beware of ordering books, vitamins, etc, from T.V. infomercials. On the end of your call, you will get an offer for a "free trial" to Value Plus that is supposed to came with a free $25 gift certificate just for trying the service. [The same scam goes for her sister company, "Explore USA".] You will be sent a fake internet address to get the forms to send for your "free $25 gift certificate -which you will never get. Worse yet, you will get charged for a monthly fee [for the bogus service] on your credit card bill. Cancelling may not be effective to get them to stop charging your bill. A real nightmare...

    To cancel your value plus charges, READ THIS. I was recently charged by WC value plus 888-642-0241 MN for 16.95 twice on my discover card. After extensive research, I found the man to talk to. The company called PROVELL, INC.

    http://www.provell.com/

    Contact #: 952.258.2017

    Contact name: Michael Murphy or ask for customer services, it will probably go to him.

    Tell him your problem, ask for proof of enrollment and ask for full refund. Ensure him that that his company is committing fraud on your credit card account because you never ordered their services.

    He ensured me that it will be fully credited to my card. This is to take place today/tomorrow. If it does not happen by my next statement, I will be contacting the better business bureau along with u.s. fraud commission with the person/company name and will submit them for investigation. This also goes for explore u.s.a. etc.

    Good luck and keep fighting!

    When purchasing a book from Kevin Trudeau I was offered two offers, one was Value Plus with a $25 gift card online and a $16.95 monthly charge unless I cancelled. There is no such offer on line for a$25 gift card and this was a scam, now they are charging my credit card without authorization.

    I too did not find the website for Value Plus to claim my gas card. The company did send me a letter originally and I had to keep an eye out for it in my mailbox. It looks like junk mail, so people may be throwing it away and then forgetting to call to cancel. I just called to complain about the website not existing and they said they would send my gas "form" in the mail. We'll see! I wrote down the date I called and the number of the company Provell to whom I will call if I get bogus charges. Just remember- if it sounds too good it probably is.

    The reason you are treated as if you are the criminal is because you don't know what you are talking about. When you speak with them, you need to know exactly what you are listening to. They do request authorization to debit your card for a recurring charge, and YOUR just too cheap and stupid to listen. "Oh, a FREE $50 wal-mart GIFT CARD!?!? And all you need is my credit card number?". Idiots. THIS is who I get stuck dealing with everyday. A bunch of idiots who don't read the fine print. You should actually listen to what they say. Honestly, don't be stupid and give your credit card number for something that's "Free" unless you absolutely trust the company.

Resolved Withdrawing money from checking

This company Valueplusonline has charged my credit card (checking acct) $29.95, which then overdrew my acct and thus anotheroverdraft charge applied. I am furious and enraged that this has happened to me, and not only myself but possibly thousands of others that they are scamming also. This is criminal and I will be reimbursed my money when I get done turning them into every consumer report board that I can find. They have messed with the wrong person here. I will not stop until they are no longer allowed to do business in this manner. I know the ropes on this one...Trust Me...

Resolved crooks!!!!!

ok so i have been on the phone with these ###s all day and they're gonna tell me its gonna take almost a month to get my money back, i am livid about this!!! first, someone tells me they have me on a recording agreeing to these charges and then they hung up on me when i asked to hear this!!! when i told them that i was gona get a lawyer cause they are stealing my money, i also told them they were gonna pay for the lawyer!!! well i have a friend who looked up info and now i have the physical address and i told them i would come get my money, but that they would need cops there!!! ok so we all have to get together and stop this, if we all take a stand, they will be stopped!!!

Resolved Unauthorized Enrollment

I don't know how and when this company got my information and how they were able to take money from my account for 2 years. I only found out about now because I was having trouble paying for my son's college tuition. I called my bank, and they told me that all charges have been stopped due to a suspious charge on my account from Value Plus. I asked if it was a store (Longs had changed their name to CVS) and they said no. I asked my Bank to give me the telephone number so I can call them. When I called to ask what was it that I was paying for, they told me that it was for them giving me information, books, and coupons for my household. I told them that I had never recieved anything of the sorts and that I wanted an itemized statement of all the things that I have recieved from them. They could not give me an answer to anything and got angry with me when I got angry and demanded all of the money they stole from me because obviously I did not recieve a thing. I went back to all my bank statements as far as 2 years and also found the same telephone number under the name of Essentials for home so I called again. They knew who I was because they probably have caller ID.
And I asked them all the same questions, they got mad, and started yelling and hung up on me. I tried to call back but they would not answer. I was charge $14.95 for Value Plus and $14.95 for Essentials for Home. A total of $29.90 a month for 2 years to a fraudulent company. If there is anyone else out there that had the same outcome, I want in on anything that would bring this company down.

Resolved Scam charges

Travel Values Plus started taking $12.00 out of my account with out me signing up for anything and I have not purchased anything online with this bank card. If you read the scams on this site about Reservation Rewards, you will find that they have done the same thing.

Now I think that Travel Values Plus is there new name.

Reservation Rewards started taking $12.00 out of my account two months ago and now Travel Values Plus just started taking money out.

The description from my bank statement from the two companies is very close to being the same.

When we called the 800# they could not find anything with my name and they wanted my credit card #. No way! They could not find me by my zip code either.

I have disputed the charges with my bank and blocked my card.
That is the easy way to do it for me, but it might harder for some people who can't wait for a new card.

This is a scam... because folks order online and they don't read the fine print when they agree to the terms giving these people permission to sign them up for this crap. I purchased an item online for 1.95 first time purchase and because of that they had signed me up unknowingly for their discount club. I've had 3 charges of 19.95 on my debit card and I called that 800 number today and insisted they cancel my membership and refund my 59.85 immediately.

They informed me that they had cancelled it as of today and gave me a cancellation conformation number but said they had to mail out a form to me to fill and send it to request my refund of charges. I told them it better arrive... as I will fill it out, send it in and expect to be reimbursed.

If they don't I will report them to my bank, the Better Business Bureau and to the Washington State Attorney General's office. I suggest the rest of you do the same, it's the only way that scammers like this will be investigated and shut down!

Resolved Unauthorized Charges to my Visa Account

For over 11 months I have been charged 16.95 obn my Visa account. I did not request, order nor authorize such charges and since I travel and have automatic payments made on my Vixa account, i am embarrassed to say it took me this long to catch up with this scam. I have written a letter to the company demanding a full refund on this fraudulent billing. Sincerely

Resolved unauthorized charges on my debit card

on August 8, 2009, the above mentioned company stole $24.95 from me by charging my Visa debit card without authorization. I have no idea who these people are or what I supposedly purchased from them, and I have no desire to know. I called them on the 11th of August, and complained and was told that "they would look into it". I want my money put back right away and they never said a thing regarding refunding the $24.95.

cancelled me when they couldn't get money from my debit card right away

After reading about all the horror stories of being charged for services that didn't pan out I guess I am lucky I have little money in my debit account. They cancelled me on the spot, I guess when they couldn't get any money from me. I feel for the people who are continuing to get charged for this scam. I don't guess I have much of a chance to collect my $50.00 in gift cards if my experience is anything like the other people, who have complained.

    I joined Value+ because after buying something else, I was offered a $25 Walmart gift card if I tried the membership. I did, and got everything they advertised, including a $20 rebate on the $30 item I purchased. I got rebates of $5 for gasoline and $20 for electricity each month, which covered the $24.95 membership.

    I was also able to order 5 $20 Walmart gift cards each month for $100. The Web site stated that I could purchase $100 in gift cards each 30 days. To me that meant, on the 31st day, I should be able to order. but several times during the 9 months I was a member, the order page told me that I had already ordered $100. So I had to keep checking back each day and finally it would allow the reorder. One time when it went 4-5 days over, I used their "Contact Us" form to send an e-mail asking about this. They said they were revising their system to change the member numbers. (My member number never changed.)

    Now this month, it went 2 days over, which means soon, if orders keep ratcheting forward like that, I would not get my order processed on the 15th, but on the 1st of the following month, waiting another 17-18 days. I complained about this, also stating that I love Value+ when it works. They simply stated: We require that you wait 30 days, reordering on day 31. I addressed to their Supervisor, CEO, and Attorneys that this was not happening and asked them to explain the interval and where I was counting the days wrong. Their response was "We're sorry you are unhappy with Value+. We have canceled your account, and we will refund your last payment." I responded, "Please reinstate my account. I did not wish to cancel. Why can't you explain the interval?" I have not heard from them, and probably never will.

    It was a lot of work, but I had it organized with tracking files and labels and I "earned" $25 each time I could order the gift cards, spending only 2 postage stamps to mail the rebates.

    I will report this to Better Business Bureau, because all I wanted was for them to do what their terms promise. They give themselves the right to cancel membership at any time for any reason; however, they should be held to do what they say they will do, or they should not say it, and do everything to keep their customers happy, or at least explain why they cannot.
