I had gotten behind on my mortgage, so I decided to pursue alternate(i.e. high interest rate) loan sources in order to catch up. One day, I received a call on my cell phone offering me a credit card MC/Visa for people with less than perfect credit ratings. After hearing the spill and agreeing to pay certain "processing" fees in order to get the card, I was advised to listen to a pre-recorded message. This message was basically a sales pitch for a product called Zylene and for a service called Galaxy Member Benefits.

After the message was through, the representative came back on the line and asked if I had any questions. I told him that I didn't concerning the credit card limit or interest rate, however, I wasn't at all interested in the Zylene or Galaxy promos. He then advised me that it was just something that he was required to pitch to people, but since I wasn't interested, he would notate not to include me on their list.

A few days passed and I was debited these so-called "processing fees". I never received a credit card (mc, visa, amex), however about a week later, I received a packet detailing my "galaxy member benefits" which I have no desire to belong to. The phone number that they provide turns you around in circles without ever talking to a rep. The web site only has a section for e-mailing complaints with nothing to indicate a legit service. I will probably have to close my bank account and hopefully buy some time with my mortgage co. because this entire ordeal has left me even shorter that I was before I sought help.

how galaxy works

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

galaxy member benefits is a good honest company with great savings to consumers. galaxy is only advertised through different marketing rooms. just recently, some of the rooms have been offering grants to customers which has nothing to do with galaxy. so please if you are a customer and you get a phone call and are being offered a grant. hang up the phone right away. do not give your infomation out.
