Don't call them from your home phone to check, use a payphone, in as they have caller ID and will use that to call you back to attempt to get the information from you to scam you.
They figure that by sending out this bogus card to people, they will be upset and contact them to verify that they are not being charged, but will invertantly give them the info to "Insure" that they will not be charged, but instead will have given permission to scam them out of becoming a victim...er, member.
I read though the list of complaints and can see where the company is writing "success stories" to counter the fraud/scam claims and see where nobody with half a brain would buy marked up products to resell at even more marked up prices for junk. You can go to WalMart and get anything they have for a quarter of what they charge.
If I am charged an annual renewal "Fee" from my bank account or credit card, I will seek crimal charges to them for postal fraud and bank fraud.
