If you join Classmates.com, beware of a little scam they have going with a company called Privacy Matters (aka Privacy Matters 123 et al). I had an unauthorized charge after joining classmates.com from a company call Privacy Matters for $24.95. I have reported this to both my bank and the FTC. I know I am not alone so if you want to stop this BS contact the FTC at www.ftc.gov and file a formal complaint like I have (Complaint No. FTC 23743442).


I also contacted Privacy Matters directly at 1-888-239-0316 and ended up talking to a customer service organization in Houston TX that is employed by them - along with 50 other accounts she told me). I registered my complaint and she said they would credit my account (yeah right) her name is Tony and her E-NO is 70045 which is probably a scam too. It's time we find out who these scam artists are and run them out of business.


They run PO boxes all over the country, the one the Houston office gave me was PO 5152 Des Plaines Ill. 60017 however my debit charge came from Connecticut. Hope this helps anyone else caught up in this scam.

charged for something I did not want

AUTHOR: Armando - (United States of America)

I upgraded to classmates,  I did not want to be charged for anything else and this company Privacymatters 123 is trying to chage me for services I did not want and was tricked into agreeing to by upgrading to gold with classmates.  it is a ripoff.

Latest on Privacy Matters 123

AUTHOR: Pissedoff - (USA)

To all of you that have been scammed by Privacy Matters (aka Privacy Matters 123), here is the latest: Finally got a credit back on my card from them and an apology from classmates.com, but only after hours of research and phone calls to locate these people. I also cancelled my memberships with both companies and put a stop to any future billing on my credit card. I don't know which banks you use but if you are with BofA as I am they were very helpful in taking care of this matter. If you contact the BofA  fraud department at 1 877 337 4228 they'll take care of it. I hope that the FTC (I filed a formal complaint against them) takes this seriously and puts these guys out of business.

Update on Privacy Matters 123 Scam

AUTHOR: Pissedoff - (USA)

After reading several complaints re "Privacy Matters aka Privacy Matters 123, (and other aliases) it would appear that they use not only classmates.com but many other web sites to propogate their scam. You can retaliate, after talking to this "customer service" agency in Houston I received a notice that they were cancelling my membership (which I never joined) however I did not recieve confirmation yet that they are going to credit my account for the $29.95. Here is their email address (for what it's worth). membersavings@a.privacymatters123.com. BTW if this company is a legit entity why do they hide behind PO boxes and no phone no.????
