I noticed a charge on my Business account for 79.00 I did not reconize and went to my bank to dispute the charge. I was told that the charge came thru on my credit/debit card number. Being a business account and not insured they told me I would need to recover my money form the company that charged my card the 79.00. When I went to the internet to find Premier Global Media in Beverly Hills Ca I saw this website and that they had been reported as a scam. I have had to change all my account numbers and am still out the 79.00. The owner of this company needs to go to jail for his actions.


EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO:

Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!

DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!

Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.

CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD

If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.

Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck Let us know how you do!

#2 Consumer Comment

Seems to me,...

AUTHOR: Ronny g - (USA)

..from reading the other dozen or so reports here lodged against that company, that they are some kind of high pressure marketing firm and they seem to prey on real estate agents promising you will have a better position on Google and nonsense like that.

I highly doubt they "stole" your credit card number but most likely scammed you or someone who has access to your card and did in fact (even if unbeknownst) authorize the charges and they sent email confirmation..so from a legal standpoint it would be tough to dispute which is why the bank told you to go pound sand.

The only hope you would have of getting those charges reversed is from the bank but you will need to be very persistent and firm, and convince the bank they are a scam. What you could try is print out the other reports from here and whatever dirt you can find out about them from online research, the BBB (they have a D- rating).. etc., and try the bank again but this time with a little evidence.

Also if I were you I would contact them (or try to) and let them know you want to cancel. From the other reports it seems they do not make this easy but just because you changed your account does not mean there can not be other pending charges or if they could come after you claiming you broke a contract with them and try to collect.

Are you Serious?

AUTHOR: Dontbedumb - (United States of America)

Ok, why on earth would a company steal your CC numbers, and sign you up for internet marketing? And than display there actual information on your bank statement? Just food for thought.. maybe you should have called them before making bogus claims on the internet..
