EDitor's UPDATED info 2-20-04: Rip-off Report is still receiving complaints that they are not receiving the refunds as promised. Rip-off Report has been in contact with the Company and has made them aware of these issues. They have assured us that refunds are being given to those who are providing them with all the correct contact information requested by them. They have also provided confirmation/proof of over 2,600 refunds to date, on a spreadsheet, and Rip-off Report staff called and verified more than a dozen consumers at random, all very angry & outraged, but, they all did get their refund. The company again apologized for the delay and reported that credit to your account could take as long as 4-5 days. As we understand it, this company only does the processing for all the other companies, so they are at the mercy of those companies funds, further delaying your refund.
Rip-off Report is hoping they will live up to what they have promised, we think they will, ..we'll see. Rip-off Report will continue to investigate more into this situation, and we will eventually post 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.
businessbureau.com CLICK HERE to see how World Benefits contacted Rip-off Report, stating they will give REFUNDS to unsatisfied customers.
Hello, I was contacted in November 2003 by World Benefits that promised me a Visa Credit Card with a $2000 limit. All I needed to do was pay a one time fee off $299, It was withdrawn from my account December 31,2003. I waited the 8-10 weeks to see this card in the mail.
I then recieve this credit package in the mail to repair my credit. I was upset and feeling taken. It stated how to get a refund if you were not satisfied with the product. You were to return it within 10 days upon receipt. We sent it certified mail and a gentleman by the name of Jeff signed for it on March 1, 2004. We were then supposed to get our refund of $299 within a few days. We have yet to receive it and would like you to help us. Thank you,
