Today my wife called me about a charge on her grandmothers (age 81) credit card for the amount of $17.95 a month and has been doing so sense Jan 06'. Yea, so what does that have to do with me I said. Well they told me that I was the one who authorized it. I what!!!!
After she told me the name, "PASSPORT 2 FUN", as you guessed it "I have no idea who or what that is". As I got home from work I immediately got on line to figure out what this was all about. My mother in law gave me the phone number for "PASSPORT 2 FUN" and I talked to a woman by the name of Lina # 26363 and another woman by the name of Evon # 25528. They both told me that I signed on through Travelocity.com, I told them I did no such thing and that I would have never done such a thing using my wifes grandmothers credit card. They said they sent me emails but I never received them, but I may have and thought it was junk and deleted it not knowing what it was about or it was sent under some other name.
As I was on the phone with them I checked my email. I keep all critical emails saved in there corresponding folder. I went and checked all emails and confirmations through Travelocity and found where I had used her credit card to buy my wife's grandmother a plane ticket in Jan 06'. Some how "PASSPORT 2 FUN" got the C.C. # and proceeded to charge it for the past 22 months. If it was on my account I would have caught it, but on a woman the age of 81 might not know better.
I have two theories,
1. Travelocity gave them my CC # or there security is not up to par.
2. Some sort of program got my number off of Travelocity's web site.
I have actually gone to Travelocity.com and tried to find a link or something to "PASSPORT 2 FUN" but was unable to find anything. After talking to EVON at "PASSPORT 2 FUN" they will only credit my grandmother 3 months for something we never even used let alone knew we had. I figure they made $394.90 for not doing anything.
So I figured that I would just pay the money back to my grandmother as my wife's family was looking at me as a thief. So I figured the best thing for me to do was take care of it, and pay her the money. As I did a little more searching, I came across this web site and I had no Idea how many people had made the same clam.
This is unreal and something needs to be done about it. If anyone is looking to make a law suite against them, let me know as I am in. We need to stand up against scam artists like this.
