Early in January I received a call from an agent from Floridaway Dream escape talking about some travel promotion and they were calling to verify my banking information. Unfortunately I gave him my account number and routing number with the understanding that I would not be charged until I received a packet from them.
I never got the packe and on 1/16/07 there was a substitute check drawn on my account in the amount of $149.00 then a week later 1/23/07 from Travel Go Direct for $59.95 .It caused 8 overdrafts totaling $232.00.
I called the company and I was told to write a letter requesting a refund which I did on 1/18/07 express mail costing $14.40 also my lawyer wrote them certified mail . Till date i have gotten no response and I 'm out about $455.40.
I filed a fraud kit at the bank ,wrote an online complaint to BBB and The clearwater county Department of Justice Consumer services.
Till date 2/1/07 I have gotten no response
I just want my money bank and all the overdrafts
(1>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 theymake 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!
