American Express777 American Express Way Ft. Lauderdale, Florida U.S.A.
American Express $79 charge for "AEPC Member Services" placed on bill if you don't respond to sweepstakes letter Ft. Lauderdale Florida
*Consumer Comment: I guess we have a new "expert" [Sexylovinalex] here on ROR!
*Consumer Comment: Carl is correct - Not reading the disclosures is a major problem with most people
*Consumer Suggestion: Not Fraud....
*Author of original report: Nope, not what happened
*Consumer Suggestion: This is not fraud,, here's what happened ...
*Consumer Suggestion: This is typical AMEX fraud! I have been through this sort of thing many times.
I would have had to respond to the Sweepstakes letter to not have the charge. It is my practice to simply throw away, before reading, any mail marked "Sweepstakes, etc." The fact that you have to respond to a communication to stop a charge like this in unconsionable...I could have easily overlooked it. I suspect a vast majority of AmEx credit card customers do just that.
I was told that the charge would be removed by the next billing cycle.
