Then I wrote to the Florida state auditor general at:
Then I wrote the Florida better business bureau (one of them) at:
THEN I WROTE DATELINE NBC at:
The more complaints these agencies receive the more likely we can shut them down as a team effort. The following is a copy of my letter to Dateline, Good Luck everyone.
Hello. A Company called 'Freedom Gold' out of Largo, FLorida called me this am and told me of a wonderful offer they had. They only needed my checking account number to verify an active account -- but no charges would ever be made without my consent. Insisting that my account number goes into circulation automatically every time I write a check. And adding that my bank would never give out money for unauthorized charges anyway so it was completely fail safe. This is where the 10 minute phone call came to a head. He would go no further about how the company works until I gave him my info. WHICH I DID NOT! I then got off the phone after being hung up on by a 'manager' and I decided to research this company. I wish I had done that WHILE ON THE PHONE. So I could inquire as to the dozens of complaints about $199 being deducted from accounts nationwide, without authorization, by FREEDOM GOLD, who apparantly is associated with two other companies, one called VersiTalk. I am so sick of these rip offs I could spit. THis is even after I told the Guy our family's TOTAL income is only $650 a month currently and our bills total about $700. (THis is true)...... He said that is why a line of credit would be perfect for me. He never mentioned a cost for the package (which according to the other complaints....NEVER CAME) and he never mentioned an online store where all the credit is spent. I contacted the FTC of Florida and the BBB of Florida. However they are NOT under investigation by the FTC. And although from what I could find ... the BBB has settled 18 cases with this company --- the company is STILL up and running.... and making a killing from people who are willing to trust. It is my dream to shut companies like this down. But at $650 a month Im guessing that my resources would not be as productive as yours. Please help.
Thank you sincerely, Jennifer
