AMK*PTH Healthy Living In OhioAMK*PTH Amerimark AMK*PTH Healthy Living used my credit card number and billed me $29.99 per month since July 2007 Ohio Internet
*General Comment: I did get a substantial refund
In May or June 2007, I had a phone call from AMK*PTH asking me if I'd be interested in a supplemental health program called "Passport To Health." To be polite I agreed to them mailing me some literature about it.
I received that literature about Passport To Health; I skimmed over and then threw it away because I wasn't interested in it.
HERE'S WHERE THE SCAM COMES INTO PLAY:
What I didn't know, was that there was a return mail envelope that had to be signed and mailed back -- to stop them from automatically enrolling you in their Passport To Health service. If you failed to catch this, they automatically began charging $29.99 per month for their service.
I was a dummy for not carefully reviewing my credit card statements. I never noticed their charge every month since July 2007 until today, May 2009.
I was livid when I realized what was going on. I telephoned them; spoke to a woman named Betty, who became irritable after telling her I wanted this billing to stop, and wanted a refund. Betty was the one who told me about the return envelope nonsense. The implication was that I, the customer, caused this by not reading the literature carefully, and not sending that card in. I said to her, "Sounds like fraud to me!"
She claimed that AMK*PTH would credit my credit card account for $663.77.
I'm waiting to see what happens next.
