Credit Plus Rewards FRAUDULENT DISHONEST THIEVING LOWLIFE SCUM OF THE EARTH COMPANY STOLE MY HARD EARNED MONEY Las Vegas Nevada *EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back into your bank account that was wrongfully taken from you!
I do not live above my means and I am trying to repair my financial situation, which seems to be impossible when my monthly wages barely cover my current living expenses much less pay off and catch up on late payments or old debts.
Let me tell you something, it is very easy to fall into debt hell!! I worked for everything I ever had and, until I was about 25, had perfect credit. My now ex-husband quit working one day and was diagnosed bipolar and all those debts that were made with 2 incomes could not be paid with only 1 income. It was that quick that everything fell apart.
Now 5 years later, I am still trying to get out of financial hell. Honestly, I had almost given up after 3 years of struggling and then I had my wonderful son who gave me reason to keep fighting this uphill battle because I want him to have a sense of security.
When I finally asked for help by getting a cash advance to keep up with the bills, this lowlife fraudulent company is what I got. These people are scum of the earth, preying on people who only want something better. There was one phone call, which was recorded, telling me all these great things and that I would get a $500 cash advance that would always be available to me with just a phone call and that, yes, I could cancel at any time and, if I cancelled before the debit date, there would be no penalty whatsoever. I had second thoughts and it just didn't feel right so I called many times, was kept on hold and never spoke with anyone, and e-mailed both e-mail addresses 5 times telling them I DID NOT WANT MEMBERSHIP, DO NOT DEBIT MY BANK ACCOUNT, UNAUTHORIZED TO WITHDRAW FUNDS FROM MY ACCOUNT. I have yet to receive one single reply. They debited my account, which was debited under Medtel (don't have any idea what this is). If that wasn't enough, I found another $21.95 debit on my account from RSIDEP (whatever that is) and e-mailed both e-mail addresses once again telling them I did not even know who they were and I know I never authorized any withdrawal of funds. No reply.
I want revenge, an eye for an eye, these people need to suffer and realize what they are doing. I want my money refunded; it wasn't much but I didn't even have that in my account. Those debits overdrew my account which was another $54.00 I have to repay. This company owes me a refund and I will not quit trying to get my money back. This is 2006, this should not be allowed to happen. These people are stealing and committing fraud and getting away with it. Someone needs to stop them.
EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!
HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO:
Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.
According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.
If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.
Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!
DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!
Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.
And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.
Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.
If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.
CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD
If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.
Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.
And good luck Let us know how you do!
