The operator I talked to was named June Baker Representative I.D. # 067 located at 7011 N. West 7th Ave Miami, Fl 33178. Phone numbers 800-410-1682 or 888-888-4565. ripped me off for $29.95 for phoney grant pkg's

First National Grant Benifits (AKA) ripped me off for $29.95 for a Govt. Grant Package. I told them I didnt want their Health Pkg junk. The operator I talkede to was a lady with a Middle Eastern accent named June Baker? That should have been a dead ringer right there but this equal opprotunity garbage we all live by in the U.S. made me a fool to trust her. Her Rep. I.D. number was 067. there address was 7011 N. west 7th Ave Miami, Fl 33178 office hours were 9-5pm M-F. Phone numbers were 800-410-1682 (No answer)or 888-888-4565. I really asked alot of questions when I talked to this jerk and the next jerk I talked to that confirmed the order sounded like the same jerk as before qand gave me an I.D. # of 03104767. I did recieve a package in the mail 5 days later. A small 4x6 box with a letter in it stating the health care crap and the grant info would be coming after they charged $299.00 to my account. Yeah Right. After I got a pwewnie box with a letter for $29.95 I sure as hell wasnt gonna fall for that twice. I tried calling those bogus numbers and to no avail.

I then looked on the internet to see that some other poor you know whats fell for the same garbage. Thanks to you guys, I did change the account before ahab the arab got $299.00 more of my money to help ther garbage tricks.

The bank check was drawn from Wachovia becuase thats the information that I gave them so yours will reflect the banks you use so don't think your safe if you have another bank! Like the person said in his comments of the same rip off don't give your info out over the phone unless your exactly sure and please watch you on-line charging also even if the site says guarded by a secure information provider! If a programmer made it then a hacker can acess it no matter what your told! Fod for thought, TSYS a major credit card company fights of 100,000 hackers a day in their business!No joke!

I hope a lawyer can help us scorch these bastards and compensate the folks who got burnt and live lavishly like those cowards that took our $29.95

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!
