CLICK HERE to see how World Benefits contacted Rip-off Report, stating they will give REFUNDS to unsatisfied customers.
They called me at work one day back in November. Offered me a Mastercard of up to a $1500 credit limit. For a one time fee of $299. I accepted the offer and they recorded it. The transaction was scheduled to take place on the Dec. 4. They took the money out of my checking account.
On Dec 8 another $299 was taken out of my account. I called their customer service number and spoke to Steve Calvin, an assistant manager, and was told that Amerinet was double debiting people on the 8th. They said the money would be credited into my account on Dec 15.
On Dec. 9 and 10th they double debited $19.95 which was unauthorized. I called their customer service several times and they would not let me speak to a supervisor. I went to my bank and disputed all charges.
On Dec. 14, I called Amerinet again and told them that I disputed their charge on the 8th with my bank. They had no recorded of the double debit to be refunded to me. They said the credit will be in my account by Dec. 19th. I filed complaints with the FTC, and BBB.
Today I called Global Benefits and spoke to customer service rep, Jessie Fernandez, there was not a supervisor there. I explained to her that I disputed all charges with my bank and I made a complaint with the BBB and FTC. She stated that only 5% of their customers have complained about their company.
I told her that I paid for a credit card not a credit repair book. She insisted that if I followed their credit repair book I would be guaranteed a credit card. She rambled on and on about how they are trying to help people with bad credit.
They have taken $640 from me. I have not received any money back or anything else from this company. I'm going to take them to small claims court. They probably won't make the effort to show up. If you want to email about this you can. I really want to put an end to this company so they can't do this to other people.
