I am still sitting here with my jaw open! I was reviewing my online bank statement this morning Sunday, 3/2/03, and noticed a check card charge of $134.95, for withdrawal on 3/3/03.
Contacted the bank via email and tried the phone number for lost/stolen cards to see if they could stop the transaction and she said I would have to call tomorrow. I do not know who these people are or how they got my personal information for this transaction - I have not made any transactions for $134.95.
I at first thought it might have been a charge from the trip I just booked, I contacted them and they confirmed that it had nothing to do with my upcoming trip. From what I see on this website it looks as though this company is working it hot and heavy. Well, I will not take this and will go as far as I can to see that whatever I am capable of doing will be done to stop this company.
From some research I have done - they are a part of MemberWorks, Inc, who is registered with the Better Business Bureau, which has been successfully sues in Minnesota. They go be numerous names, i.e. 24 Assist - Canada, Card Protect Plus, DealTime, Galleria, Lifestyles Rewards - Canada, Main Street Savings, Money Master, MWI, Quick Assist, Simply You, Travel Arrangements, Travel Source - Canada and ValueMax - Canada.
Also, in the State of Florida Attorney General has a open and pending investigation for MemberWorks, Inc. "Illegal telemarketing and/or credit card "cramming". Case Number: L00-3-1920.
