MWI Connections ripoff theft
I discovered a charge on my bank debit card by this company. I had never even heard of them and my bank had no info about the charge or the company except their name and the amount they took from my account.
I found them on the internet, got their phone number and called to find out why they had taken my money. They of course gave me the run around saying I had signed up for some free trial membership (by the way the couldn't tell me what I was supposed to be a member of by paying this money) and didn't cancel within 30 days.
The $109.95 debit resulted in $200 in bounced check fees on my account. I told them I had never heard of them so couldn't have possibly signed up for anything. I demanded my money back - the $109.95 and the $200 - and told them if I didn't get it they would be hearing from my attorney.
I don't know how these companies get away with this. It just amazes me that it was that easy for them. I don't even know how they got my check card number - which of course I had to cancel because I have no idea who else has it.
I have since gotten all my money back after a wonderful man at my bank did whatever it was he had to do. However, I am disgusted that this occurs so frequently that there is a massive web-site dedicated to reports of this happening to people. This must be stopped!
