A phone call entered my house last February of this year despite my "Do not call" registraton. Why am I now taking action. I forgot about it as they didn't send me the "Welcome" package. They did accept the $495.00 I charged on my credit card. Is this starting to look slippery?
The problem with charges is they become buried among other whimsical acts. Cash flow companies thrive on this.
Ultimate Business Solutions (UBS) offered an opportunity(?) to help local companies. UBS would provide loans interest free. Supposedly working through the major Credit Companies. Recipient would pay back the loan from a percentage of the future profits. (Isn't that the way a loan is usually paid?)
UBS would then pay me a percentage (I think he said two percent).
I could get started with only a $495.00 fee. Charging a purchase is simply too easy. It doesn't pinch your pocket until later.
In fact, I forgot about it. Until the second week of July. When the Director of Operations rings my phone and has "Some exciting news!"
He tells me how they call the companies once a week for six months. This would cover any changes that may occur.
Now he wants me to fork up another $1250.00 to obtain a "block" is the word he uses of companies they'll call. What shut done my positive thoughts on this venture was his insistence that I do not contact any of the merchants.
In other words, they were going to pay me for doing nothing!
I told him to get lost.
A recent phone exchange has USB telling me they can't find any record of the Feb 07 transaction. Agent also mentioned that "The credit card company must of put a hold on the transaction."
When I called "Credit Card Company", they knew nothing of this "hold." What does that tell me?
