rip off & scams

I received a letter in the mail saying as promised, we're giving you $40 in cash-back gas rebates just for signing up for value plussm. Log on to well when trying to sign onto the website no such website existed, when I called them on the phone the lady said you will be receiving your $40 in cash-back gas rebate in 7-10 business days never received it and that was 2-3 months ago. I never wanted a membership with these people and they sent me an e-mail saying "welcome to your membership", I immediately called them and told them off and told them I did not want anything they had to offer. Then, I immediately cancelled my credit card so they wouldn't have the chance to take my hard earned money. These people are major ripoffs! They should be fined, prosecuted, and shut down permantly.

Thank you,

bad business practices

After nearly 1 year in the program, Provell, Inc. canceled my membership before honoring the rebates offered under the program. The cancelation occured because I requested to update my account information because the cc on file would expire in the near future. I called the 800 telephone number provided and asked to update my account information and gave the reason for my request. I explained to the rep that I did not want to cancel my membership, only to update the account info so I could continue with the program. Unbeknowst to me the rep at the 800 number canceled my membership but did not tell me. I learned after e-mailing the membership services website that my account was canceled. I've tried unsuccessfully via e-mails and letter to get the account reinstated but have not heard anything. In addition, I had submitted receipts for reimbursements under the program prior to the reps cancelation and they have not sent the rebate.

I feel like I've been ripped off!!


I received vitamins from this company on a trial basis, for the cost of shipping and handling. The next month I received the vitamins, I sent them back with cancel on the box. I tried to contact the maker, but was unable to find the URL.
I have been getting charges on my credit card since. I had to contact my credit card service to have them stop payment, I have no product, but they have 19.95, x 3 at least. The credit card company has temp. given me a credit till they can investigate. Do NOT do any business with these people.
They are crooks.

    I reviewed my Discovercard statement yesterday, 4/1/09 and saw an unauthorized charge for $19.95 by Pro*Value Plus Monthly. When I called the company and asked them what their company was they said it was a membership for products and would not tell me how or when I gave them my credit card number. They said they would cancel the membership and refund my money. Later, I mentioned this to a colleague in New York and she told me that she looked at her Visa statement and saw the same charge and could not figure out what it was for.

    I never authorized this company to charge my credit card for $21.95 but they have been charging since 8/25/10. I happened to check my statement this month and found that it's been going on for long time. Please cancel all the charges and reimburse all the charges immediatly.

    Apparently you are automatically signed up for a "trial membership" if you make a purchase.
    I have made at least six calls asking for an email confirming my cancellation and every time I am assured that I'll get the email within 48 hours. Of course it never happens. Tha cancellation confirmation number I was given on the phone doesn't allow me to access my account to confirm that it is cancelled.
    The people on the phone never know why "you haven't been sent a confirming email" but "I'll take care of it right now"

    I, too, have been trying to get a refund for an unawthorized payment of $19.95 from this company. I first spoke with a lady named Jordan who assured me that this would be refunded. After a month and no refund, I called 800-475-1942 again, and spoke with Crystal. She showed that my bank had been sent a refund the day after I called. The bank has not received anything. I don't know how this company was able to take this money without my approval. I do not use coupons, so i would not have ordered them. Please warn anyone you know of the danger. I plan to seek legal action if I do not see a refund soon.

My Visa/debit card was just charged $16.95 from WCValue Plus-V. I knew I hadn't used it for that, I had only made 2 online purchases with companies I wasn't familiar with, I received my products, but 1 of those 2 companies must have given out my card info. I told my bank that there are other complaints online, so they said I should file a fraud complaint with them, & cancel my card, which I will be doing, & I will never make another online purchase with my credit card again.


I have just received a welcome letter for ValuePlus Online.
I have no idea who they are, but they gave me a membership
number. They say I subscribed with #[protected].
Please help me discontinue this company. I am not interested,
and did not subscribe to their company.

    I have had no complaints up until now. The service has been good. I have received everything they have promised me. All that I have had to do is go onto their website. Print out the forms and mail it with payment proofs to the address provided. They then, within 8 to 10 weeks, have provided me with a refund check or gift cards depending what I requested. The charge was always a deduction of $19.95 from my credit card but I received over $30 back every month. Yes, I would profit. What is puzzling me is that I didn't get charged this past month and I have never missed a payment. Also, I can't seem to view any of the offers when I logged on with my password. I am puzzled and don't have anyway of contacting them. I don't know what happened and want to continue with my service. Overall, it has been a good service.

membership number

I cancelled my order about a month ago and called back to confirm the cancellation. I was supposed to receive an email confirmation as well as my membership number. I want my membership number sent to me thru email: [protected] I want to receive my gift cards and you haven't given me all the paperwork I need. I need the member number. I also want to review your product when I am not in a hurry. You gave me no time before I was getting billed or before I could even see the possibilites. Please follow up with my member number by email. Thank you.

Unauthorized withdrawall from my CC account

I noticed an unauthorized withdrawall from my Check Card in the amount of $16.95.
After a little research I found an phone number: [protected] MN. I also found the name of this outfit, "".

When I entered this into my search engine it led me to some "Gambling Games" in England.

I repeated the process a second time and this time I got, "DAMARK® The Great Deal Company!"

Who can I contact to help me rectify this illeagal withdrawal from my bank?

don't knnow who they are

I have no idea who they are, if I had more detail of who they are, I might be able to know if I ordered from them.
They wc*vacationpassport have taken $19.95 out of my checking 6/07/2008 and 7/07/2008. wc*valueplus-v has taken $19.95 out of my checking on 6/20/2008.
Can you please send me a detailed discription of these companies or do you know that they are credit frauds.

    I also concur with the above indivuals, Value Plus-V has charged my card 6 times for $16.95 and I have been calling the 800-474-1942 MIN number over and over and they have told me each time that they would stop billing my account. I have continued to pay to avoid a counter suit against me. But I have paid off a huge credit card debt and I want to close the card account but I need this resolved first. Thank you with all sincerity for someone who will help me.

    I agree with Herman call your bank about this issue I'm doing the same thing as they billed me twice vacation passport and value plus $16.95. I called they said I became a member with something I purchased online around 4/10/09 after going back to that date I did however make a purchase, but wasn't made aware these additional purchases the consumer rep said I wont be billed anymore even gave me confirmation numbers, still to be on the safe side I'm calling the bank to make them aware of my situation. If the bank cannot help then i'll have to change my account to avoid any additional charges.

unauthorized charges to my bank

This matter is unknown to me as to how I qualified to become a member or when or where I applied for an application to become a memeber and give consent to have funds withdrawn from my account in the amount $16.95 monthly. I noticed it on my statement right after I purchased the portabook for my computer
Which took some time to even show up on my account more that thirty days. As of the present I am now in for two payments. There should be some law for such fraudulent practices. I say once again that I under no circumstance do I willing know of allowing these charges. Please advise me as to what steps to take to recover my funds.

    i work for provell and i can assure you whether you were aware of the membership or not it's legal. i don't place the orders so don't yell at me, by the way. I'm one of the people who cancel those memberships and credit refunds back so if anything i'm working against those marketing practices. basically, if you order something over the internet, or the phone (with a telemarketer) or through direct mail, there's always the fine print, which states that you will be signed up for these memberships on a trial based period (14-30 days) and when it expires you will be charged monthly. DO NOT BUY FROM A TELEMARKETER OR OVER THE INTERNET UNLESS THROUGH PAYPAL OR EBAY. the disclosures and fine print are what you need to review before accepting ANYTHING. also, it is NOT only provell who uses this, even something as simple as downloading ringtones to your phone will do something similar. I went to do that myself a few nights ago, but stopped myself and made sure i read the fine print first before doing so, and sure enough the fine print said a one year subscription monthly membership would be given to me at a fee. POINT: MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE READING WHEN MAKING A PURCHASE UNLESS VIA A STORE IN PERSON. it's not provell who sells this to you, it's the vendor for the item you purchased who signs you up in conjunction.
