Sit down, Folks.
I have been scammed multiple times. Initially it was via my credit card company. Consumers are "Inticed" with "Walmart Gift Cards" or Traveler's Gift Checks or similar. You simply filll out the form that comes with your credit card statement. The Trilegiant Company will send you "materials" about which-ever scam they're trying to hook you with. You get the materials, you later get the goodies they promised.
When you call to cancel-you'll get a fast talking-often broken English-sales pitch. It goes sooo fast you may not understand! They say "Oh as a thank you-or whatever-we'll do blaa blaa and enroll you in (some other scam) for only .99!! You just need to supply your card/debit number and then more fast talk.
You call to cancel this. Sometimes you'll get another fast talking sales (con) pitch. But it's too late-
they have your card number as well as the code on the back of the card. This has also happened when I've called hotels for a reservation. Same fast talk with broken English-just .99 cents thay say.
There's SO many Trilegiant subsidiaries/affiliates that it's nearly impossible to keep up with them a Therin was my challenge to put their address-I was not able to find the Trilegiant specific address-it's only the "affiliates" (other con artists).
You may notice small debits/charges on your statements. If you're like me, you might not even open your statements (I know BIG mistake!!). Often, if you do notice them, it's too late to do anything. That's why I am going through all the trouble of posting this now-hopefully you won't fall victim to the Trilegiant scams. It seems like they're doing smaller charges/debits then keep getting larger as they get bolder-and determine you're not monitoring your accounts like you should. Personally, I find it just so ironic that one of their scams is to "Protect the consumer from identity theft!"
Thank you for listening and I hope we can nail these crooks in the very near future! Possibly a class-action lawsuit???
