Wc Value Plus - VUnauthorized charges

I discovered this company had taken 3 monthy payments from my bank account for $16.95 each. When I called the 800# I let them know I had ordered nothing and demanded to know also where they got my card info. I had ordered a couple of things online in the weeks prior to their first charge so I assume they phished my info. The rep only answered the phone as "Membership Services" and could not tell me for what type of membership I was being charged for or how they got my card #. He could not find me in his files he claimed. I asked for a supervisor and "Jim" got on the line answering "Gardens Alive". One of the products I ordered from an ad I saw on TV was for a miracle grass seed. In any event I'm connecting the dots and feel this online order is where they got my info and then they try to tell me I've subscribed to some garden club. I suppose they figured me for some senile old lady but I'm one consumer sick and tired of these ripoff artists and I'll fight to see these unscrupulous people put out of commission. The supervisor also claimed to not have me in his files either (and therefore could not submit back my money) but I believe it is only because I was demanding to know from the git go how they got my card #. I've been reimbursed by the bank and am filing a dispute form with them (CAUTION: anyone else most banks can only go back 60 days on a debit card transaction) and will put in the dispute form that this is fraud for my bank to pursue. Also I have downloaded a Minnesota State Attorney General complaint form as this is the address showing on my bank statement and will file charges there as well. Complaints will also be filed with the BBB.

    I paid off my credit card and discovered that this "sim*value plus has been deducting 24.95 monthly for about a year and half. I called the 800 number and was told I subs ribbed to their membership..which is crap..and if I wanted to hear the transaction that I confirmed I would have to request it in writing. They would not let me talk to anyone who could help me. I will also be contacting the MN attn general.

    Here is how you take care of this (I am not a lawyer and by any means litigating or advising you - I have to say this in case it goes to court):

    First: file a police report with the information on the company from you bank (you can also search Manta.com for the company info)

    Second: take the police report to your bank, and file a fraud claim.

    Third: once the investigation is started you should have it resolved shortly!

    Hope that helps, I know this works a JP Morgan Chase Banks.

    I just found a charge for $19.95 on my bank statement. When I called the 800 number listed with the charge, I was told this is an intermediate company and he had no information concerning when or with whom I signed up for this "service", nor could he tell me what this "service" was. I immediately demanded a cancellation of this charge and a refund of both charges back to my account. He replied that he would submit my request but it might take some time. I told him this is NOT a request, but a DEMAND, and I would be contacting my bank and the Attorney General about this fraudulent practice. He hung up. PLP

    I bought snuggies on line. they offered three choices for a bonus. I clicked on the icon for a $ 10 rebate offer and before I had a chance to refuse I was suddenly signed up for monthly value notifications by email, that I never wanted and no way to remove it. Also never got the $ 10. Yet now the unwanted $ 1.95 charge to my checking account has become a monthly $ 19.95 in just 30 days. Of course they deny any knowledge and that they have had other complaints. But can do nothing.

    I also scanned by cc bill and noticed an unfamiliar chatge of $16.95. I called the toll free number and being sunday got no response. I contacted my ccc company and they will credit my amount back after jumping through hoops and a ton of friggg'n paper work. I always by from reputal companies 0nline. I think this had to do with "as seen on tv" Always check for boxes that need to be clicked or you're screwed.

    This fake company got me to! They charged me $19.95 for nothing. I didn't order anything online or over the phone so I don't no where they got my card info from. As an Internal Investigator for a major retailer I see this type of stuff all the time and am very careful with my own accounts and this just pisses me off!! I will be filing this with the financial crimes unit of the police department and advise everyone else to do the same to stop these SOB's. Good Luck

    I just checked my bank account statement and found the unautherized charge of 19.95 on my account. I called back to the phone number of [protected] MN and asked what's about it. The receptionist answered that they would refund back the amount and will cancel the so called memebership I wasnt even know what it is. I called my bank and planned to fill up the disbute form and claim for the refund.

    I just phones the 800# today Oct. 30 and complained for the second time about unauthorized money ($16.95) taken from my account since last year July. I am so upset with this. They were not helpful and just told me it was for a "membership" I signed up for. I DON'T believe in memberships and the lady who answered would not give me an address to make a formal complaint. They have now taken over $220 from my meager account. Isn't there an ATTORNEY who could do a class action suit?

    Noticed a $19.95 charge on my credit card statement from this company. I don't know anything about this company, have never ordered anything from them, did not give my credit card # to them and did not authorize them to use my credit card. Total fraud case. Call your credit card company and cancell your card after filing a complaint with the fraud department.

    I too, noticed on my bank statement charges of $16.95 3 months in a row and have no idea how they got my info. As a result I had to cancel my card and am waiting for a new 1. The bank re-embursed me for the charges and is also looking into reversing some overdraft fees which were the result of their charges at the tune of almost $200! I am on a fixed income and really thought it was my own mathematical error

    I was charged $16.95 without my permission and the bank can't do anything about it without authorization from the company to stop the payment. I called the company and they said they will cancel the arrangement. We shall see

    I have received 3 unauthorized charges on my credit card for WC VALUE PLUS V, telephone number [protected] MN. I called the number and I anticipate it to be canceled but would like to inform others of the possibility that there is a problem. I did telephone my credit card company to dispute the charges.

    I just found out about this today, and we were being scambed byWC *Homeplay - V [protected] and WC*Value Plus-V for the past five months to the 19.95 per month each! I too just got off the phone with then and demanded online access to collect my refund since I did not trust that I would ever receive the 'refund form" This is the link
    to the form they said to use.

    wc*value plus-v has been taking money out of our account . We didn't authorized them to. When called them they claim they would quite. Called back the next day and they told me the same thing, they would close the acount, I dont even have with them. Make sure you check your credit card bill every month for charges that you didn't make. Turning it over to consumer report.
