ENCORE/TRILEGIANT/AFFINION - MASSIVE FRAUD OPERATING IN NASHVILLE/KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE AREA.

READ THE OTHER REPORT(S) #298713 ON THESE SCAM COMPANIES THAT ARE AUTOMATICALLY TAKING MONEY OUT OF YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT EACH MONTH ON THE SAME DAY. I HAVE BEEN SCAMED SINCE 2002 OF A $5.00 DEDUCTION FROM A COMPANY SHOWING UP AS "ENCORE" ON MY NATIONAL CITY CHECKING ACCOUNT STATEMENT. THE BANK WAS OF NO HELP, WHEN IN FACT I WOULD GUESS MAYBE 1000'S OF THEIR CHECKING ACCOUNT CUSTOMERS (ANY MANY MORE VERY SOON) ARE REPORTING THESE AUTOMATIC DEDUCTIONS. I CALLED 1-800-251-2311 (NATIONAL CITY BANK GAVE ME AN 800 NUMBER TO CALL) , A COUPLE OF FRONT MEN ($10 PER HOUR IDIOTS) WERE TOLD TO SAY IT WAS FOR A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY PREMIUM (RIGHT). UPON 10 MINUTES OF QUESTIONING I WAS TOLD THEY ONLY HAVE A FAX LINE AND NO MANAGER. AT THIS POINT THEY SAID THEY WOULD MAIL ME INFO AND TO PUT IN WRITING. WELL GUESS WHAT? I GOT PUT ON THEIR SCAM MAILING LIST. ONE THING THEY MAILED ME IS CALLED "PAYMENT CARD PROTECTION" ON THE FRONT OF THEIR COLOR (TAN, BROWN AND WHITE) FOLD- OUT BROCHURE ASKING ME TO LIST ALL MY CREDIT CARD NUMBERS ALONG WITH MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER (RIGHT).

ANOTHER SCAM MAILING IS FROM "FINANCIAL SERVICES association" ASKING ME TO MAIL A CHECK (NOT CASH) SO THEY CAN GET MORE CHECKING ACCOUNT NUMBERS TO AUTOMATICALLY BILL FOR "NO CONSIDERATION" FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

THE FRAUD RING USES ONLY P.O. BOX NUMBERS, MAINLY IN TENNESSEE.
P.O. BOX 121619 NASHVILLE, TN 37212-9837 &(37212-1619)
AFFINION BENEFITS GROUP P.O.BOX 40706/40606 NASHVILLE TN 37204-0706
MY GUESS...THESE GUYS(AND YOUR MONEY) ARE OUT OF THE COUNTRY & FORGET HIRING A LAWYER (SPENDING MORE MONEY THAT YOU WILL NEVER RECOVER) MY GUESS IS THAT AT LEAST ONE GUY WAS ONCE A LEGIT SMALL BUSINESS PRINTING COMPANY OWNER. WELL, MY $420 IS GONE, I SHOULD HAVE QUESTIONED THE AUTO DEDUCTIONS FROM MY BANK STATEMENT MORE AGGRESSIVELY.

I MADE 4/5 CALLS AND 3 PERSONAL VISITS AND GOT THE RUN AROUND LIKE NATIONAL CITY MANAGEMENT WAS GOING TO HELP ME. THE BANKS ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR MONEY NOT YOURS. ANOTHER WRITER ASKED ME TO GUESS THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE SCAMED BY THIS RING. WELL THEY HAVE BEEN OPERATING SINCE AT LEAST 2002(MAYBE EVEN SINCE 1997) AND THEY DO HAVE PRINTING/MAILING AND OTHER OVERHEAD COSTS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE AND I DON'T WANT TO SPEND ANY MORE TIME ON THIS I JUST WANT TO HELP SAVE MONEY TO THE POOR VICTIMS YET TO FALL INTO THIS HOLE. I WAS ASKED TO GUESS SO HERE IS MY WORTHLESS MBA DEGREE BEING PUT TO USE..I WOULD GUESS THEY HAVE SCAMED 35,000 PEOPLE SO FAR FOR ABOUT $40 MILLION DOLLARS WITH A GROSS PROFIT OF ABOUT $29-35 MILLION. TIME TO HAVE A SMOKE AND LET THE DOGS OUT
