This November my family was approached at a local Kroger supermarket for a photo opportunity. The package was $10 with a $6sitting fee. We decided to go along with it since it was an inexpensive package. We did the photo shoot, and went to pick of the photos a week later.

I went to pick up the photos and was told as I walked in that the packages were all 50% off. He then showed us the photograph and told us the price for everything was on sale for $500. I of course said no. He then preceded to talk down the price to $400 then to $300. I told him I would just take the $16 package we paid for and was about to leave when he told us he could give the pictures to me for $150. He seemed to be getting anxious to sell the pictures so I reluctantly agreed and split up the payments so $75 would go directly off my credit card and the other $75 off of my bank card to be post dated.

Well the $75 went off my credit card, and two weeks after the $75 was supposed to be taken out of my bank it finally cleared. Now a week after that another $75 is showing up as being taken out of my bank account. I am getting very upset that these people have my account numbers. The first charged was cleared and the second one should never have been entered. I have tried to call them and have not recieved any phone call back.

The pictures were okay, nothing I would pay $166 for when I could get pictures done at any local studio for half the price. I don't mind paying for what I recieved, but they were not authorized to charge my account anytime they felt like it.

This should help you out !

AUTHOR: concern1973 - (United States of America)

Simply contact the store Manager, NOT AN ASSISTANT MANAGER, the accual store manager point out the multiple rip off reports and 80 Attorney Generals fraud cases against them when they called themselves United Studios of America and explain your issue, Portraits USA used to be called United Studios of America, they changed thier name to Portraits USA back in July of 2010 because of all thier fraud cases the Ohio Attorney General has against them, I'm sure that Kroger has not been notified that they are up to thier old tricks in thier Kroger stores . Look them up both United Studios of America and Portraits USA LLC at www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov , the law WILL catch up with them soon enough . You can help by letting Krogers Corperate office that is over the very store you were defrauded at not let them do these activties in thier stores. Hope this helps you out.
