Advanced Wellness Research advertised a product for $4.95. The product never arrived after my account was charged. Several weeks later my personal account had a charge of $79.95 on it. After informing loss prevention of Wachovia of the issue they reversed the charges after 15 days. Then again several weeks later another charge showed up on my account .

Then several weeks later another charge from another company UMG showed up on my acount. I contacted loss prevention with Wachovia. They informed me to contact the company and complain and inform them that if the charges were not returned Wachovia would file a criminal suit.

I contacted this mysterious UMG and informed them of this. UMG stated that Advanced Wellness sold them my credit card number and that they authorized UMG to charge my card.

I was apalled. I am fighting the charges with my loss prevention department of Wachovia. And I had to order new debit cards so that the old card can be locked down and not used.

Someone should shut these kind of companies down.


My lesson learned. *If anyone out there is dealing with these criminals, you need to stop. Wachovia is a wonderful means to prevent this type of loss. But unfortunately only after the charges have went through.*

Concerned consumer!
