I called this company because I saw a charge that came out of my account on today 3/4/2009. I called the company to ask what company this was and the representative that I spoke to asked me for my phone number and began to verify my name and my address.

I asked the representative how he got my name and all of my information and he stated that they had several partners that they could have gotten my name from. I asked him if he knew what company gave out my information and he stated he did not know because they had alot of companies that they partnered with. I stated that I wanted to cancel this service and the money put back in my account because I did not sign up for this service, nor did I authorize them to take any money out of my account. He stated he would refund the money within 3-5 days.

Then he proceeded to ask me if I had taken advantage of the 21 day free trial. I advised him that I had not because for one I had no knowledge that I was signed up this company. He proceeded to ask me if I wanted a free financial analysis and wanted to know about my finances. I advised him that I was not interested and just wanted my money returned to my account.

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!

HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO:

Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!

DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!

Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.

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 they make 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!

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. These companies are using our name and trying to hurt our reputation without our permission...

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

We are not now nor have we ever been involved with Innovative Wealth Builders Club or I Wealth Builders Club. These companies are using names that are similar to ours There is a whole new industry that is beginning to grow on the Internet. These groups operate in a very tricky way by using similar names of company with good reputations in a way to scam their victims.

We are trying to work with the people at companies like Ripoff Report to help fight this problem. We are a sixteen-year-old company called Ideal Financial Solutions, Inc. We are one of the largest online financial companies in the country, and we have hundreds of thousands of very happy clients.

One of the problems with marketing on the Internet is that it is easy for dishonest companies to use similar names of reputable companies. Then inaccurate reports like this get written, and, like you, we become one of their victims. We wish there was something that could be done to stop this type of dishonest behavior, but unfortunately, until there are better regulations of the Internet, this may be an ongoing problem.
