Well, Datesnow got me too, over 120 dollars. I spent 2 months trying to find them as I'm sure most of you did. I finally found them - an affiliate of PZEST.com. I tried the site DatesNow.com and found the datesnow pty ltd and sent a message to online support to ask why I was being charged for this site and didn't have a password - never got a reply.

I started calling different sites that I had giving info. to and found PZEST.com (PARIS HILTON video-didn't even see it) According to them we should have unchecked the box for Datesnow (WHO SAW IT?). To cancel my trial membership with pzest, I called. Do you think they told me about Datesnow(HELL NO!!!)

Anyway,if you call 1-800-447-6439 --give email address and c.c.# --be sure you know exact charges--they won't offer the info. I got my money back in my account that same day and called again to verify cancellation. I'll be more careful next time. GLAD THAT'S OVER

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish you 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 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, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it is their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal 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!

Rip-off Report has logged, as of today, 3,788 e-mailed complaints. Additionally, several of the actual Rip-off Reports filed contain numerous victims.


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/comptroller 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.

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 you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.


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! File your 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!
