I discovered unauthorized charges on my credit card from two companies: 24Protect and PMIdentity for $1.00 and $34.95 a month for three months. When I contacted PMIdentity they (Asia and Charlotte) would only refund two months and had to put in for a "review" to refund the last month. When I called the other company, 24Protect, there was no possible way to speak to a human. Only email communication was available. I filed two complaints with the Better Business Bureau and in the process discovered that both companies are owned by the same parent company: Vertrue Inc., out of Omaha NE. They have and "F" rating and have been sued by the Iowa Attorney General for 30 million dollars. I called the corporate number and they claim it wasn't fraud and that I agreed to terms. The terms I agreed to were the "free" 30 day 3 bureau credit report. I canceled my "free" trial within the 30 days but these two affilates state that they can't be canceled that way...even though Vertrue owns the free3bureaucreditreport company as well. It's a scam! They own at least 80 companies and have over 20 different P.O. Box addresses in Omaha. You can see all this for yourself on the Better Business Bureau web site.
