WC *Value Plus 800 475 1942 MNDo not let this company scam you!

K Review updated:

I can't contact this company to stop this and the only reason I figured this out is because it made my account balance over limit. I am careful usually and I don't even use this card anymore because the interest is ridiculous. Has anyone out there figured out how to contact them and set them straight?

What kind of products have people out there ordered before they discovered that this company started showing up on their credit card statement? I know myself I ordered Lens Dr the liquid eyeglass repair stuff that you fix horrible scratches so you don't have to buy another pair of glasses. Since figuring this out I have probably spent that much because I didn't notice these charges until now. They are charging me 16.95 and have been since Feb. at least. I am so mad it is ruining my mother's day with my mom. She is sitting in the other room while I try and figure out how I can fix this problem but because it being Sunday no one is answering any phones even my credit card company. So I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow to flip out all over again.


If you order something just order that product when they ask you if you want this and that say no. No special speedy delivery or anything besides the product at least that is how I think I got this charge on my account. Who knows I will never order anything online again.

Which stinks because I don't drive and this comes in handy occasionally.

Thanks for listening,
New Bedford, MA

    I keep getting charged 14.95 for WC VALUE PLUS 800-475-1942 MN. I found out that they are damark.com, but I dot know how to contact them regarding taking the charge off my bill. Did anyone have this similar problem and/or know how to fix it?

    @Ryan Try calling 888-836-6877. I got through, gave my name. The gal looked me up and found that I had an active account in this "coupon club". I asked to cancel because, as I put it, the telephone purchase I made of a product from an on air ad was a flim-flam that hooked you into the stupid club. She said that I had already been charged for one month in the club at $24.95 but that my account would be closed and the $24.95 refunded within 5-9 business days.

    Hi Everyone,

    I ques that i've joined the list of being ripped off by this company and a few more along with this proccess. I joined what was called myster shopper's and i ended up paying with my visa card to do this. I never found anywhere on the so called shopper sevices to sign on to my account. Now this is making sense to me. I called them to recieve help and they never retuned my call. I called 3 times and asked them to cancle my account. this week I recieve 2 letters to sign on to valueplusonline.com and iexploreusa.com to recieve my free gas card and a free shopping card each for $25.00. Now there is no such site for ether to claim my gift card's. I hope some one has reported these so called businesses to the better business burro??

    I thought this was a rip off when I was first called but I thought I would check it out an now I see from the complaints that I was right. The company does not belong to the Better Business Bureau so calling them will do no good. If it was a ligimate company they would have a email that you could contact them on. As soon as thy answer their phone I am going to cancel my account.

    Hi my hubby called for a trial sample of a item from an infomercial on TV--to help with diabetes. He was billed $6.95 for the sample. Tried it --and cancelled it. Then the credit card comes in with 3 charges for a total of 18.95 in addition. Called the credit card company and they advised to call the number on the statement. Did so-and demanded that the charges be removed and no further billing take place. I told them I felt it was fraud because the only purchase made on the phone from an infomercial on TV was for a natural herb to reduce blood sugar. They said they were only the billing agent and these charges are trigged by buying on line or on TV. They agreed to credit the amounts and stop charging. Called the credit card company back and they advised they will block further charges--if any--from this WC-VacationPassport. This is the only purchase made off of TV/internet that we can see on the bill. If it wasn't the trial of the natural herb that triggered these billings then I don't know how someone billed these amounts to us!!!!! Be careful what you order on the phone. Period.

    I just looked at my bank card statement and noticed a charge of 19.95 + 1.00 from WC VALUE PLUS. Who are these people? They are associated with Shopping Essentials there # is 1-888-243-6180. They also charged to my account in the amount of 1.00 + 14.95. I remember getting a call also and they had my card #. But when i canceled the shooping essentials I spoke of another company they had sign me up for and the guy acted like he did't see another company I was signed up for. Watch out I wonder if we should call the bank to see if our information has been given out.

    I got caught in this scam too, never heard of value plus and shopping essentials untill they appear on my bank statement. I can't seem to get in touch with them by email and I am in jamaica so phoning them would be very expensive.

    Look out for charges from "hpcgold.com" they're another set that take your money then try to convince you that you agreed. One person told me I agreed by email and another told my wife she agreed on my behalf

We all need to go to the Better Business Bureu. I called 1-800-475-1942 to cancel but they did not credit me for what they already charged. Keep Watch on cc for this.

    I received a voucher with information that I would receive $40.00 in free gas. I did not enroll in this and do not know how they got my account information other than my Visa Check Card. Immediatley after reading these comments, realized what a scam this was. I called the number that was provided and cancelled. They said I would receive my confirmation via e-mail of the discontinued membership. This is not right, something needs to be done to stop this.

    I received the letter in the mail. I called the number as soon as I received the letter. I called the number 1-800-475-1942 and ask them to cancel this lie. After I cancelled then I went on line to try to get the free 40 dollar cash for gas. After I read all the complaints I called them back to make sure they cancelled this lie. I told the person what I thought about this lie and told him if he charges my card I will sue them.We live in a world full of deception.Please be careful.I will look on my bank statement and will call the bank in the morning to make sure they stop any transaction by these terrible people.

    For whatever reason I haven't been paying close attention to my VISA bill. I did today, saw this $14.95 charge from WC* VALUE PLUS and called them. Told them I had no idea what this was and to cancel the charge. I was told it would be cancelled and confirmed with a follow-up e-mail. I then went back into my statements and found this started in February. I called them back and told them I wanted a refund from February through this month. I was told I'd need to complete form that they would send to me, return it, and I would be refunded. We'll see.

    I am appauled at the manner in which this so called company (Value Plus) has taken advantage of all of us and no legal action has been brought against them. These human impersonators have been billing my account as far back as June 2006 for $14.95, supposedly membership dues. I too was told about the $40.oo gas card that subsequently does not exist after being told to go to that website. I work with attorneys and I am definitely going to inquire about the legal options that I may have gainst
    these folk.

    I, too, have been charged since March 2006, beginning with $1.00 for WC*Value Plus and WC*Explore USA, each. Then I was charged $14.95 each monthly to the month of November. I'm usually very carefully checking the charge accounts monthly, but somehow this one slipped through. A total of $239.10 in all. I'm glad I checked online to find out about the scam. They'll be getting an earful very soon.

    I got a letter fro Value Plus. I have no idea where it came from and they said that I have a 25 dollar gift card and I can claim it on www.valueplusonline.com/gcform and I can see the form there and when I download it per instruction, I cannot print it out to be filled out and send it. That is a good trick. I have Arobat too and can see it being downloaded but just cannot print it.

    I will call them immediately and cancel this scam. Is there any government agency doing anything about this?

    We as consumers should hire a legal representive to recover all our money from this company. I should have the "right" and the" free" process thru my bank to" stop payment" on items such as this or wrong-full charges on my credit card. The "system"encourages the use of these bank cards. And charge us to stop payment on our own money. It is all part of a system designed to releave a hard working citizen of thier earned pay. It is my sincere guess that is one of thousands of electronic scams in action across this country. Imagine the figures involved ,and whose pockets are they lining?

    Add me to this long list. It is a shame, and of course it is re-enforcement of the adage "let the buyer beware." They got me on some program for consumer discounts. Told me I would be sent vouchers for various discounts. I never received anything except a $19.95 charge to my c.c. Called the 800 number and cancelled the representative was more than happy to cancel. When I asked her about not receiving vouchers as promised she said I had to respond to a letter sent to me and sign up for service via e-mail. I believe this to have been deceptive at the least, she did not agree. I believe there is in this case a connection with my cc company First National Bank Omaha. AS EVERYONE ELSE HERE I WAS ROBBED. $20 WAS TAKEN FROM ME THAT I WORKED HARD FOR AND RECEIVED NOTHING IN RETURN.

I called 1-800-475-1942 and got it cancelled before I was ever charged thanks to my nosy husband. I am so glad I came across this board first.

    I just got "the call" yesterday, after making an online purchase from what I thought was a reputable company! After I hung up (sure $40 in gas is worth $1!), I googled the 800 number (which, luckily, I wrote down), and it led me here. I called to cancel my bank card this morning and report this scam to my bank. What a major inconvenience to have to have a new card reissued (7-10 days) right before Christmas, but it's better than getting charges.

    I called the 800 number to cancel...you guessed it....I'm not in their system, and call back next week. I was told it takes 4 days to get into "their system", and I'll still have 14 days of trial before I'm billed (I was told 30 yesterday). My bank assures me that they can't bill anything to me since I cancelled my card, unless they have my bank account number, which will be a whole different story.

    I am LIVID right now, and have emailed the company that passed along my information. I won't be doing business with them again! They're the only online purchase I've made in eons, so it's pretty certain they're the ones.

    Thanks to everyone for their stories....that saved me money, and I hope and pray that those of you who lost money will get refunds. Who is supposed to be out there protecting us from this crap?

    Is there any way that I can cancel this payment? I'm scared to call them because several things happened to me because of my bad English...they will probably just confuse me!

    Does it mean that my bank account number is not safe? And anyone can charge money? Somebody help me.
