I was offered a promotional gift card to Wal-mart or Target beacuasse i perchased a phone card from wal-mart. After setting up my phone they offered me the deal, that would only cost me $5 for shipping and hadling to recieve a $100.00 card, useable for wal-mart or Target. I agreed thinking that it was a legit offer(considering it was coming through wal-mart),and giving them my credit card number. When i recieved my "gift card" in the mail, it was not as expected.
I recieved 4 coupon vouchers for $25.00, and could only se them if i had ALREADY spent $100.00. So i called smartshopper to write my name OFF their list because what i recieved was NOT what was offered to me. They supposedly cancelled everything,but i checked my bank statement and they had charged me almost $70.00 for 3 more offers i never agreed to. So i called them again and they re-embursed my money to my account.
This morning i receved a phone call from a magazine company saying that i am being charged $69.95 for magazines that i oredered through SmartShopper. I told them NO that i had not orederd magazines and i closed out any association with smartshopper. They proceeded to tell me that i DID oreder them and if i have issues to get ahold of the company who is selling out my personal information to other companies, and hung up on me. I tried calling them back on the number they called from and it was a toll free phone directory. So i believe Smartshopper is selling out credit card numbers and personal information.
