I tried to get a credit card through World Benifits.
They took $299.00 out of my checking account 11-03-03. I was told it would take 6 weeks before I would know anything.
I called back 1-04, they gave me the runaround, I called back 1-28-04, 2-05-04, 2-11-04 & 2-12-04. They told me I had to pay another $39.99 to get another paper from the bank. They told me if I didn't want to pay the extra money, they had done all they could do for me. Today is 4-28-04. I dont have a credit card nor my money. My only income is SSI
U.S.A. 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.
