Imperial Benefits Aka Imperial Consumer Benefits Aka Beneficial Client Care ripoff-Imperial Benefits took my money and did not deliver product. Fraud committed. Extortion committed. Champlain New York
*Consumer Suggestion: JASON KASTNER + RONALD CORBER IN MTL
I received a phone call from a company identifying itself as Imperial Benefits. They said they worked with people helping them to reestablish their credit.
They said that they had a program thatwould send me an interest free Mastercard which would allow me to charge items and pay them off with NO interest.
They further explained that a one time fee or "membership" payment of $279.00 was required and within a month I would receive the package with all the details and my Mastercard.
The telemarketer was very slick assigning me a program number and had someone else call me back to verify the contract and assigned me a verified contract # 646825.
A month passed and then a couple more weeks and finally I called them at the phone number that they gave me. After being on hold for a long period of time I finally spoke to someone and told him I did not receive my package or credit card.
I was issued an immediate apology and asked what I wanted them to do. I told him that I wanted my product which they had already debitted my bank for.
I was told I should receive it within 2 weeks and I asked the individual for his name. Oddly enough he told me that his name was "Jesse James" and we joked that it was an outlaws' name.
I was stupid enough not to realize what he apparently was actually telling me, that he was knowingly ripping me off. But because I actually did get to speak with someone at the phone number provided I was still trusting this company.
Now after not receiving anything for the second time promised, it became clear that I had been ripped off. Apparently this scam is still going on because the phone number is still connected although I didn't have the patience to wait to talk to "Jesse James" again.
Something needs to be done to stop this fraud. I am really mad at myself for being SOOOO STUPID!!! I know there are a lot of people more gullible than me that are probably having money extorted from them. It needs to stop!
