CLICK HERE to see how World Benefits contacts Rip-off Report, stating they will give REFUNDS to unsatisfied customers.

I have been scamed by a company called World Benefits, and also called Global Benefits. I was misled by an employee called Dave Arthur; his phone number is 1-866-933-0388-Ext.25, he said I would receive a Visa card from either Bank of America or Wells Fargo Bank. The credit card was to have a low interest rate of less than 10% and a credit limit of $2000.00.

After a company named Financial Benefits withdrew $299.00 form my checking account on Dec.08-03. I heard nothing until 2 months later, Jan.04, and later that month received a portfolio of worthless papers from Financial Benefits and NO Visa card as described by the reresentative I talked with on the telephone. I have tried to call the company several times, and if I do happen to get someone, they have NO idea what I am talking about and give me another 800 number to call.

I finally did contact someone named Curtis Wise. He asked for my phone nunber, which I sent him and someone named Bob Richards told me to return my package they had sent me and amend my letter to Ripoffreports and then they would refund $269.00. I told him I would, but then E-mailed Curtis Wise and asked him why I would be shorted $30.00 of my own money-It's been a couple of days,still no contact. No response. I did use the ripoffreports address as instructed when contacting World Benefits.

EDitor's UPDATE info:
Rip-off Report has been contacted by the owners of the company, they said those who have asked for refunds should see them no later than Monday morning or sooner. Credit to your account can takes 4 to 5 days to actually hit your account ,

They again apologized for the delay. We'll see. Rip-off Report is hoping they will live up to what they have promised, we think they will. SO you know, Rip-off Report has confirmed 73 refunds so far, and we know there should be many more. Rip-off Report is investigating more on this situation, and we will be posting an UPDATE to the main Report at this web address https://www.ripoffreport.com/view.asp?id=76605

Please be patient, we can only tell you what they are telling us.
