First of all I received 2 different emails with the subject headings "Make A Regular Income On Ebay" and the other onw was "Work Online With Ebay". The emails were labelled "From": Ebay Certified Developers, Auction Success Team from Auction Success Review Newsletter.

Both emails were solicitations for a $US 1.99 CD that would tell me how to become an Ebay powerseller. I thought it looked fairly professional so I gave my credit card info to sign-up for a measily $1.99. "How could a guy go wrong for $1.99" At least this is what i thought.

To make a long story short, I didn't ever recieve a Ebay CD in the mail or any other correspondsance by mail fromn this Company. Instead I recieved a debt on my credit card for US$1.99 to start, the first month. Then I recieved 2 subsequent debits on my credit card for US$49.95 (second month) and another debit from I Pro Auction for US$49.95.

I called the company in Cda from 1 (801) 785 5069. Then I found out that Epro Auction was being run online by a Company called Electronic Marketing Services Inc. Anmyway, I told the people there that I didn't recieve my CD from them in over 8 weeks. They told me it should be coming shortly. However, it never came in over 6 months to date. Anyway, I asked them about the unathorized debits on my credit as well. They apologized and said they would credit my account for the charges. In the end they never credited me anything to date (9 months later).

The motto to this story is first of all not to answer to any emails with the subject headings as mentioned above. Secondly, make sure you have use a credit card company that will re-imburse your account should any unauthorized purchases or debits occur on your account. I was forthunate as my credit card company covered the unathroized debits on my account. I sincerely hope you have the same coverage on your credit account. If you don't get it ASAP without delay. And keep in mind this company will change its name on your credit to
I Pro Auction to ward off detection.

Above all else, I'm confident that you've read this note for a deeper more meaningful purpose this day. It is vital if not paramount that you know where your going for an eternity. Your life here on earth is but a speck of dusk on a whole beach of what lies ahead for you. Are you headed for heaven or hell? Romans 10:10 in the bible will tell you how to can freely receive eternal salvation without regret or religiousity. And finally you will have the peace of mind you've been looking for for years. Today is your day!!! Jesus truly is the answer to any and all problems you may have. The bible states that "Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life." I'm the only Christian in my entire family and I am so blessed I could puke. You deserve to be as happy and if not happier than I am. All you can do is give it a shot. And in the end you will be more than glad you did.

Take Care!

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


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!


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.


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!
