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.
World Benefits called promising a major credit card with a $2,000 limit.
The representative hung up immediately after she informed us of the $299 debit to our account and we had no contact information.
We researched the company and came accross tons of information stating that they were ripping people off.
A month later our account was debited and we obtained a phone number for the company. The representative guaranteed us that we would receive a card within 30 days. I specifically asked her if we would get a card or and information packet.
Last night we got an information packet with no card inclosed.
The email address they gave me to review my "account" status, doesn't exist.
I have contacted my bank and sent an email to the address given on this site for refunds. If anyone knows if it is possible to bring charges against these people please let me know.
