I just ran upon this site today as I wondered where in the world my new "Visa" was. I had the same phone call and $200 deducted from my checking account. When they first contacted me, the first thing I asked is "Do I have to pay you anything now?"

Of course we all know their responce for that is no. When you get your "Visa", you will get 2 $100 vouchers to mail us back to make up for that $200. I, planning an awesome vacation to California for Christmas, thought, "Hey, I could always use more money for my trip!!" So, I bit! Needless to say, I still haven't recieved my "Visa" card with that wonderfull $2500 limit on it in the 10 business days following the deduction from my checking account.

I tried to call the company to get a refund on my money after I ran into this site. I sat on hold forever and when someone finally answered, it disconnected us immediatly. When I tried to call back, convieniently, the business office was closed at that time.

After I could not reach any LIVE people, I tried finding their company on the internet. Amazingly enough, I did not find anything but this site. I will continue to try and get my money back. In reading other people's comments, I have seen that talking with your bank sometimes helps and filing a report with the Federal Trade Commission also helped someone else. I also plan on talking to all the media in this area concerning these frauds.

I do not know whow these people are thinking that they can try to take away Christmas for my kids with their Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, and Uncles. But if I have my way, they will get put out of business or worse. If anyone would need a witness in court and I can possibly be of help, contact this report. It is time that these people are taught a lesson in what it means to mess with the little people. Add us all together, and we are a big people.

It looks like you got your money back.

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

From reading your posts it appears that you authorized to take money from your account, which they did on Dec. 4th and the company returned your funds on Dec. 12th. Eight days seems like a very quick response. Most companies make you wait 30 days at the least.

By the way, if you did not wish them to take money from your account, why did you give them your checking account number and routing information (I know they need this info to eft your account)?

With all respect your complaint sounds contrived. You give them your account information and then complain when they debit your account.

Then when you complain, they give the funds back to you in a timely manner and you complain about that as well. Are you sure you do not work for a competitor???

How I am getting my money back!!!

AUTHOR: - ()

After I put in this original report, I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commision. It is really easy to do and if enough of us do it then maybe the Federal Government will take harsher action against this company and others like it who fraudulently take atvantage of those of us with less than perfect credit. To file an online complaint, go to



http://www.ftc.gov/



I also called them just before I am entering this in. I did have to hold for a really long time, but I finally spoke with Stuey. Such a nice young man. NOT!!! He proceeded to tell me that they did refund my money. Kinda funny since I haven't spoken with live person yet. He gave me the same bull about how you get 2-$100 gift certificates and that is how they refund your money. Blah, blah, blah...You guys know the rest! When you do call them, stick to your guns. Even after they get that little tape that they recorded, which funny enough they are sure not to mention Visa or Mastercard, tell them that they have no other option but to refund the money back into your checking account. They will fight you kicking and screaming, but stand your ground on what you want. Tell them also that you will contact all the media such as newspapers and TV in your area to warn others of their scam. Which I will do anyway, just not quite yet.



Supposedly, the money is on the way back into my checking account as we speak. I will keep a close eye for it. I will keep you all updated as to if it makes it or not.
