Restaurant.com - TWX*AOL - AP9ShoppingEssentilas Fraudulent credit card charges Nationwide
When we settled the bill it turned out when the restuarant manager called Restaurant.com to validate the certificate that we should have spent $100 to avail of the $50 certificate.
Yes it was there in very fine print but it had no mention of that when I purchased the thing.
Since it was now validated and in turn automatically invalidated we could never use it again.
Going over my American Express account in preparation for tax day I discovered that right after giving my account number to Restaurant .com I was being billed $14.95 each month for the past 9 months with an another charge of 17.95 this month by a company called AP9ShoppingEssentials.
A total of $152.50.
Then I noticed that at the same time I was also being billed by an company called TWX*AOL for $4.95 each month.
A Total of $39.60
With the initial charge of $20 by Restaurant.com my total bill now comes out to $212.10 for a certificate I could not use!
Going over Restaurant.com's terms on their website today, it states that they will share your info with third parties but make no mention of giving your private credit card to other companies who charge you yet fail to notify you directly that they are doing so.
This is the most fraudulent thing I have ever seen.
If you have EVER used Restaurant.com I would suggest you go over your credit card statements now!
