After noticing and taking care of the credit card fraud by the grant research people, I noticed 2 charges for $29.95 on my credit card account for IWB Club. I have never heard of these people. There have been 4 more charges for $29.95 in the past week. In total, IWB Club charged me 6 $29.95 monthly membership fees in less than 3 weeks, even though I told them that this was a fraudulent charge and they agreed to cancel my "account" and refund my money--which hasn't happened yet.
** The Scarey thing... Due to the first fraud issues, I canceled my credit card, changed banks, and opened a new Visa card with a new number. So, the first 2 charges were on the old card, and the last 4 charges were on the new card. When I asked them how they got my new credit card number, and why they were still charging me "membership fees" even though they canceled my account, they could not answer. In fact, the first man I talked to hung up on me at that point. I got another promise that they had indeed canceled my membership, and that I should not be getting any more charges on my credit card. Yeah, Right! I also recall reading that IWB Club has over 500 BBB complaints.
I'm going to file a complaint with the Minnesota Attorney General's office. And one other question, Why can't the ISP shut these two sites down because they clearly are violating the law and standard banking practices? Are 40-50 people enough to start a class action lawsuit? It is clear that the banks and these fraudulent businesses are not all that interested in helping people to get their money back. Wells Fargo continues to let IWB Club charge my credit card for these fees even though they know they are fraudulent. I ran up $560.00 in in fraudulent charges and $300.00 in bounced check charges while these and other fraudulent charges were run up on my credit/debit card, and I haven't been able to get my money back from the bank. I even have police reports for check theft, bank fraud, and identity fraud. Nobody has lifted a finger to help me. I am thankful that there is a website like Ripoff Report so we can keep track of these parasites!
