Complaint Review: USA Benefits
USA Benefitsunknown Phoenix, Arizona United States of America
USA Benefits solicited my credit card information, offered fraudulent benefit Phoenix, Arizona
I went ahead and spoke with the person who answered my call. He identified himself as "Robert" and had a thick east Indian accent. He told me that I'd been rewarded for shopping with my Visa or Mastercard because I had accumulated 1,603 points. He asked for the spelling of my name, street address and phone number. He told me I would be put through to a verification line to receive my confirmation number.
He said I would receive a $100 voucher, which I could spend in any major retailer I liked. Target, Walmart, Sears, etc... He had me write down the name of his company "USA Benefit", and noted that they were located in Phoenix Arizona. He gave me a "JOB ID Number" of 928874, and said my voucher would arrive by postal mail in 4-5 days.
Then he stated I would need to pay $1.95 for shipping and handling of the voucher. My phone cut off after this, which is great, because that's where I would have hung up anyway. Obviously a scam. I see from the other reports here that this company would have gone on to charge my card for $40 or so on a monthly basis.
I went to the BBB for the Phoenix area, and there is no business with this name. There is a similarly named business "Benefits USA", but they are an insurance company. No relation.
