I was paying my husbands credit card bill online and noticed a $12.95 charge for MWI Simple Escapse and asked him what he purchased and said he hasn't used his card in over 4 months. So I looked into the transaction history and found this place has been charging his card the $12.95 for the past 3 months for a membership he never spoke to anyone about or signed up for online or by mail. Transactions are copied and pasted from the statement:

09/17/2004 09/18/2004 MWI*SIMPLE ESCAPES2 877-362-3067 CT $12.95

10/07/2004 10/08/2004 MWI*SIMPLE ESCAPES2 877-362-3067 CT $12.95

11/08/2004 11/09/2004 AP9*SIMPLEESCAPES 877-362-3067 CT $12.95

I called the phone number listed on the credit card statment and was able to obtain a membership number and their website through their phone options. I did log on and send them an e-mail contact and will be contacting them via phone today as well to cancel this membership and to try to obtain a credit refund. I am also going to dispute the charge on his credit card. Will update later.

Refund Recieved. MWI Simple Escapes.

AUTHOR: Julie - (U.S.A.)

Another update. Received three separate notices for each dispute we filed from our credit card company for charges by MWI Simple Escapses. MWI did as they said they were going to and credited our account. A copy of the letter from the credit card company is below all three letters read the same.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the $12.95 transaction from
MWI*SIMPLE ESCAPES2 877-362-3067 CT billed to your account.

In researching this transaction, we have found that the merchant
issued a credit of $12.95 on November 18, 2004.


Household Bank Customer Care
Billing Dispute Department

All three charges have been credited back to my husbands credit card.

He never cashed a check from them. Has seen them before but if you read the fine print is says it is for a very much avoided membership. We'll see if we get our refund.
