one day my husband and i were at the beach when he got a call on his cell phone. A lady was on the other end and was offering a free vacation, at first my husband said no but then she continued to tell him what a great deal it was and that she already had our account info and that all that she needed us to do would be to verify the account #.
immediately my husband said no and put me on the phone i in turn said no. he then took the phone back and she insisted that she had all of the info in front of her and that it would be at no cost to us. she then gave my husband the last four digits of our banks routing number. and then he gave her the account number never agreeing to any charges.
My husband is in the military and was on temporary duty for a while when i recieved this info in the mail. it then said that my account would be charged 149.95 if i didnt cancel. so naturally i canceled with a confirmation numer and all.
then today i found a charge on my account for 49.95 i looked in to it and it was teliflex. they said that when i cancelled the vacation which i never authorized in the first place it wasnt the teliflex portion that that was separate. i have never heard of teliflex or ever ever authorized them to debit my account.
i called tham today and they threatened to "pull up the tape" i told them go ahead and they could not get me any tape, then they told me that no supervisor was there and if i wanted my money back that i would have to write a refund request to their address. then they told me that nothing could be done over the phone but to call back in 5 days and try and talk to someone then.
i immediately called my bank and they were so great, they suggested that i change my account number to prevent any further charges and they put a watch on my current account. i will contact law enforcement and the other appropriate agencies to try and prevent this happening to any one else.
