MKS* SIMPLE ESCAPES - NEW INFORMATION FROM AOL! Ripoff! OMAHA Nebraska
I called Simple Escapes and they gave me some stupid story about their computer network is down and to call back in a few days. I dug up the AOL number and gave them a ring. I asked the man that I wanted to know the connection between AOL and Simple escapes. He put me on hold for a minute then came back. He asked why I thought AOL was connected with Simple escapes and I told him that I only use that checking account for AOL and AOL only and that it was quite the concidence that the simple escapes debit was on the same day that AOL had made their debit.
He put me back on hold for about 5 minutes and came back to tell me that "I need to go onto AOL and go to keyword SHOPCHAT, log in and enter the transaction number that he gave me and deal with it there." He told me that the only information he could acess was that the order was put thru using the master screen name and that it had something to do with a K-MART GIFT CARD.
After reading all the posts on here about people getting 14.95 re-occuring debits rang all too fimiliar to me. Earlier this year I was being charged 14.95 for I think 4 months and everytime I got my statement, it said it was for check 104... a check number that I had never had. It just kept slipping my mind and when it stopped, I never thought about it again....until now.
I am going to file every fraud report that I can find against AOL and SIMPLE ESCAPES. I have already cancelled my AOL account and I hope that everyone else that ends up here with this same problem follows my path. It's just sad to think of all the people out there that don't catch this ripoff. We've got to try to stop this!!!!
