I cannot yet understand how and where they found my cell phone number, when I have never tried to contact them. On August the 30th 2012 I received the first call. After that they call me at home for an interview and I would say, after a long phone conversation and by taking advantage of my meager knowledge of English, they proposed me an Exclusive 5 Year Gold Membership and made me feel privileged to become a member of Covingtonwhoswho.com. And at this point they mention that the membership cost is 589$ for 5 years and if I want, a lifetime membership for only additional 199$ (please notice that so far I was thinking everything was free).

When I go back now, I think I was so exited that I decided we can go with the 5 years membership, but for the additional 199$, I told them I would decide later. And I remember perfectly that when they asked me my credit card number, I felt extremely uncomfortable. But I do not know why, I decided to go ahead and I gave them my credit card number. However, when they asked me my credit card security number, suddenly, it was like a flash, I figured out Im going in the wrong direction and decided to cancel everything.

I told them that I cannot give them my credit card security number and I want in a first place to receive and read the membership agreement and to finalize the transaction later. They said that there is no problem and I will receive the document later the same day or the day after. You can imagine my surprise when I received their e-mail and I saw that everything was already finalized, that the $589 were already charged on my credit card despite the missing security number and that even a final payment of $199.00 for the registry will be charged on my credit card on the 15th of the month following the date of registration.
