Last year my Father was dying I had to get a ticket right away. I had a account with Travelocity and my Husband purchased the ticket with his own bank account. My name isnt on it. The travelocity account is registered with my email address and has my previous booking info.

A year later I noticed that something called Shoppingessentials with nothing but that and a 1888 number on my husbands account for $14.95. I did research and they were billing us every month for a year. I called and they said I signed up for a membership with them. I told them I never did such a thing how did they get the bank info etc. They told me that because my email was registered with them that at some point I agreed to this. Which is totalllllly untrue. I do not ever accept offers of any kind. Any pop up offers I egnor! This is complete fraud. So they said, this supposed account was in fact in MY Name. My email etc. Funny thing is, I paid with my husbands account. The statement on my Travelocity bill says card holders name to be my husband. Well they said all I could do was cancel and they would give me a slap in the face refund of just $14.95 even though they billed me for a year before I caught it.

A month later their sister company or affiliate I noticed called passporttofun looked identical on the bank statement. $14.95 also they were taking out... and I tracked it for the last year. I eventually got them to refund it all back. But shopping-essentialss wont. They maintain that this is a valid claim on the funds being removed for a membership I never agreed to. Their proof of this is that they have my email account and they said it registered with the company. So then they had every right to take the bank information that just so happens not even to be in my name. So, they knew that and billed
anyway. Fraud.

AUTHOR: Shauna - (U.S.A.)

I wrote this report. I did get Shoppingessentials to refund the total amount. Funny thing is that I caught another charge on my husbands bank account (my name is not on it) and another entity of shoppingessentials and passporttofun. It's called Reservationrewards!
They are apart of this one company. They sell your bank information and all claim you sign up for their rewards program through travelocity... which gives them the right to bill your debt account or whatever you use to purchase a ticket from travelocity.com~ So they are all the same company, I just discovered one in Feb. then another in march.. and now April I discovered Reservationrewards billing my account too... all have been doing it the exsact same time for a year. I am in the middle of getting my money back from Reservationrewards. They charged my account 12.00 a month, and both passporttofun and shoppingessentials charged... 14.95 a month. They were all seperate, but the same scam
It's complete fraud. The more unsuspecting people... can you imagine how much money they make fraudulently?
