And what exactly is this company doing?
They send you a postcard in the mail claiming that it's your "Final Notice! Your credit card with a ($) credit limit has not been activated yet. You have (#) of hours to activate. Call Now!."

They offer you credit cards usually with a $4000 credit limit (most common amount, but amounts vary), make you pay a processing fee anywhere from $39 to $200, they debit the money out of your checking account, then either never send you the card, or send you a card that only works for their catalogues which they do not tell you over the phone-whichever deems convenient for them. They claim to help you earn good standing credit by charging 3 fees of $33 to the card (one a month), and they report that you have good credit to the credit bureaus and then raise your limit to $7500. The truth is, if you get this card, it will be harder for you to get a regular mastercard, visa, etc. in the future.

Phone numbers anyone?

They give you customer service numbers when you are all finished giving them your life savings, and half of them don't work! In fact, the only ones that I have gotten to work are the activation numbers! The rest are either automated, give you no dial tone, or say they are busy and make you call again later and then they hang up on you! However, I've taken the time to type out all these numbers for everyone's benefit.
Phone numbers include (but are not limited to!):
(305) 468-0019
(435) 586-0733
(518) 298-4011
(786) 242-8928
(800) 323-8623
(800) 427-4419
(800) 427-4719
(800) 427-6207
(800) 576-3378
(800) 576-3988

(877) 926-6227
(888) 403-9156
(888) 447-1014

What are the addresses of this company?

Honestly, I can't even sort through them because there are so many. I have counted 55 so far. Most of the addresses are just P.O. Boxes around the U.S. or suites. Most of these mailboxes most likely receive mail, and the mail probably just gets shipped to another mailbox until it finally reaches the location of the real company (if there is an actual company building!). However the most common addresses that I have seen are:

7349 NW 34th St. Miami, Florida 33122
9590 NW 25th St Miami, FL 33172
225 W Main St, Suite 101-605 Mesa, AZ 85201
6690 Roswell Rd., #310-348 Atlanta, GA 30328
11470 Euclid Ave., PMB #534 Cleveland, OH 44106-9156
1800 Sahara Ave. Suite 108 Las Vegas, NV 89104

So what can you do if they've taken your money?

Well, if it's still pending on your account, or you just gave them your info, RUN to your bank right now and put a stop payment on it! It will cost you $25 at most banks, but it's worth it if you get to keep your $200! Even for those who are only paying $39. If it's too late, and they've already got your money...again I say RUN to your bank! You can file an ACH (automated clearing house) dispute. This is a paper you file when someone has either taken money out of you account without your permission, or has taken the money promising to give you something and either doesn't give it to you or gives you something other than what you were promised (aka a shoppers credit card instead of a regular one!). The bankers are usually very nice and will help you fill out the report. Just don't wait forever to do it! I must reiterate one more time...GO!

I hope this helps others like me!

Capital Choice--E-credit solutions---Want your money back? Here's what I had to do...

AUTHOR: - ()

This is an update to my last report giving out all of the information I could find on these fraudulent credit card companies. In the last report I said that you could file an automated clearing house report at the bank if they've already taken out the money. Well, if you bank at wells fargo, you already know that they are dicks about your money. So here's what I had to do. I called the attorney general's office in my state and told them the information of the company and my story. If you are familiar with how they work (or not), here's what they do. They send a letter to the company. Now, the company doesn't respond to the first letter sent because they don't want to have to deal with it. Once the first letter is sent out (they mail you telling the what they are sending and a copy of the letter)you need to find a number for the company that works (it's usually in the package you get, if you get it). They say they need to review the tape and will contact you when it is done. Mind you, this is a very long process, but it worked for me. After about a month of no response, the attorney general's office will send you another letter saying that they haven't responded along with a copy of a second letter (more stern to)they send out to the company. When that happens, this will occur (hopefully). The company will either call you and say that they recieved a letter from the attorney general and want to know what's wrong with the package, then say again that they still need to review the tape. Right when you hang up, you call the first number you called before and complain that it's been more than a month and still haven't recieved a call saying that the tape was reviewed. The company's guidelines are that they have to review it in that time, or give you your money back if they didn't do it. They'll then issue you your refund. Like I said, it's a long drawn out process, but it works. Try it if you've been scammed. It's nice to get that 200 bucks back.
