Where to begin. On 8/4/06 I received a call from a very nice young lady. She advised me because I paid one of my bills over the phone using a check, through one of their afflicates, I was chosen to look over some information, and would receive 4 airline vouchers, and a 6 day 5 night Orlando Vacation for using one of their partners. She advised if I did not call after I receive the package, I would be billed $149.00. Ok, she said the call was recorded - so I kept saying over and over again....You will not bill me correct? She said yes. I said I do not want to be billed for anything! She said yes just call when us when you get the envelope. I asked how long it takes- she said about 5-8 business days. I asked what it would look like. She said it would have a big cruise ship on the front. I keep repeating over and over, that I will take whatever they are offering for FREE, however they are not to bill me, and I will call as soon as I receive this in the mail. I called 6 Business days later, advise them no letter. They asured me I would not be billed because I had no yet received the info. I said, nevermind it, just cancel it now. They advised I would have to wait until I received it. 2 days later I call again - they say the same thing. Mext day, MY CHECKING ACCOUNT WAS MINUS $149!! I call the # right away, they say I will have to write a letter asking for my funds back- no email, no fax. It todays day and age?? How did they have my banking information in the first place? She said are you still with Commerce Bank...? I said yes. BAD MOVE. They must have aleady had this my bank account # and routing #?? And that was all the missing info they needed. Every since that charge was taken out of my account, and even more than usual am being inidated w/ telemarters, and now even calling me at work!!

This site was very helpful to me- took me how they do it- use Vericheck. Told me who to write my letter to and everything. Thank you rip off report !!! I am now calling the BBB.
