From doing some research I can tell I'm one of many who has had a payday loan search go terribly wrong--somehow ending in an unauthorized debit draw of $49.95. How do they get away with this? Either the "yes" choice that they keep insisting is there somewhere is skillfully hidden OR they're outright lying. I know I can't remember being asked if I wanted a virtual secret cash card...Jeez...if I can't remember even reading about a choice? I don't think I ever viewed one...

Well, either way, they're sneaky little buggers I'll give them that. This happened to me once before and I talked them to death in their "ticket" or complaint form format and I did get a refund. You go to the website, scroll to the bottom and click on "contact us". Then on the new page, click on the first blue link and fill out a ticket form.

It just happened to me again 2 days ago and so far they're not answering my replies. For everyone's interest, I'm posting the conversations below.

02:56 Hi,
Thanks for responding so quickly. Your information above is helpful however it doesn't change the situation that the order was an error and mistake. I never intended to order a cash card and I never received one. Unfortunately your directions about the "yes and no" choice must be hard to locate on whatever form I accessed.
If it was clearly visable to me I wouldn't've allowed a "yes" to go through as I cannot afford the $49.95 fee. Please access your records and refund my money as I do not want the card.

Thanks for your time and effort,
Annabelle XXXX

That is the same message I have already received, thank you. I am requesting a refund of $49.95. I did not receive a card, I did not mean to order a card, I will not be using the virtual card and I do not want to pay for something I will not be using. Please process a refund as soon as possible--I did not intend to order this.

Thank you so much,
