In December of 2004 I noticed on my bank account 4 charges of $30.00 each from a company called SGADA.COM 800-370-5012 NICOSIA. I called that number and they told me they are just a money processing service company. They told me it was a company called My Perfect Credit, after locating a number and email address on the internet I proceeded to call them and told them that I never wanted or asked for this service.
They asked me if I recently ordered a credit report online. I told them yes, I got my free credit report online, because in California credit reports are free. I told them they better refund my $120.00 right now. They said okay, and sent me an email to fill out they said it was a formality. I did as they asked I filled out their email and sent it back, I also faxed it to them. here was the 1st transaction:

If you subscribed to the MyPerfectCredit services with our Pre-Paid VISA Card offer, there is a one time non-refundable bank issuance fee of $29.95.

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU SHOULD KNOW!
The Public Institute Research Group (PIRG) reports that 79% of adults in the United States have at least five (5) negative Credit Report items, per Credit Bureau, reported in ERROR!
Your Credit, even with errors, can legally be used to turn you down for a job, credit and even insurance such as auto, life, liability, homeowners, and renters.
According to the PIRG only one-third of all Credit Report disputes submitted to the Credit Bureaus are responded to or resolved to the satisfaction of the consumer.
The national average FICO Credit Score is 678. However, if your Credit Reports were accurate, your score might be much higher. If you have a 610 FICO score (rated C-) and think that is OK or the best you can get at this time, then keep using the MPC system because your Credit Score might really be 690 (rated B+).
The U.S. Supreme Court has said that individuals are responsible for their Credit Report files maintained at the Credit Bureaus. This means YOU must dispute inaccurate, outdated or unverifiable items. If you wait more than two (2) years, the Creditors and Credit Bureaus are not liable for damage you may incur as a result of their errors.
There are over 30,000 Identity Thefts in the United States every day. If you have credit, you might soon be the target for illegal use of your Credit that could damage up to ten (10) years of your life.
MPC has the only Credit Report based, offer and compromise Debt Relief program.
The MPC prepaid VISA card has No Interest Rate, No Late Fees, No Annual Fee and can limit your exposure to on-line Internet fraud because it is not attached to your bank account or to an extension of credit. It also reports as a positive credit item on your Credit Report.

I never received a reimbursement even after many more attempts to get my money back. I just gave up. This was all in the month of Dec. 2004.
Then, all of a sudden July 27, 2005 I receive a phone call from a company called 1st credit of America stating that I owe 200+ dollars for service rendered by My Perfect Credit.
I told them I don't owe them any money, this is fraud. They asked me if I refused to pay. I told them I will pay after I receive a paper bill, statement, etc. in the mail stating who, what, when and why I owe. They told me they will not send anything until I pay them money over the phone first and that if I don't pay they will ruin my credit.
I laughed and told them send me a bill in the mail or I will not pay. Good Day and Don't Call Me Again! Of course they continue to call every day via their automated system. I filed a complaint with the California BBB.
I would like to be part of a class action lawsuit to get these frauds. I wonder how many innocent people have got suckered into paying them this money. Something has to be done about this! I also found another address for 1st Credit of America if anyone is interested:
