Beware! The very same company that has represented themselves as "Credit Plus Awards" are also now committing the same fraudulent acts under the name "Credit Line Gold Card" as well. They convinced my girlfriend over the phone that she was going to be able to build her credit up with a $2500 credit limit that can also be used to receive cash advances transferred directly to our bank account.
This guy already had ALL of her information in front of him, even the banking information and social security #. This lead her to assume that this was one of the cash advance loan companies she had applied to a few days back so she didnt question it.
You know how the story goes from here... After many crucial misrepresentations of their alleged "service", they debited $200 from our bank account before we had a chance to review their terms & conditions from their website and what they are really offering. I started doing a little research and very soon realized that we had been scammed. I guess we are one of the first to get scammed under the name "Credit Line Gold Card" since I didn't find much on this site under that name.
The card and info was supposed to be here in 2 days, but a week has passed by not that I would even think about it after reading what this is supposed to be and seeing the 10 fake Authorized Merchant sites with nothing, but a login box on them. Since I build website
I am an honest, hard working, professional Web Developer. These fraudulent companies are not only giving the people in my industry a bad name, but are ruining the entire Internet; especially for the people who are just now getting brave enough to buy things online.
Im not even going to deal with trying to get any sort of reply from those bottom feeders. Im going straight to the bank to turn over all of the evidence I found linking all of this together. Why dont these guys get thrown in prison? All I have seen are complaints and some people get their money back. Where is the actual justice for the offender?
In my curiosity, I wanted to look into this company a little deeper and I couldnt believe what I found out. With a few technical resources, I found that one group or main company based from 2 physical locations run literally hundreds of these sites and each one is just slightly different with its service and the fees.
They register the domain names with fake addresses, but they used the same fake addresses so it wasnt very hard to link a lot of the information together. Their employees are from a temp agency and are not even aware that they are working telemarketing jobs for a scam.
There was even one instance where the employee gave a void check to the company so she could be setup for direct deposit and after 1 weeks there was $300 debited from her account from her employer. That is unbelievable!
Here a fraction of the info that is directly related to these scam sites. This isnt even close to all of the domains owned and operated by this corrupt entity,
