i signed up for the site when it was offering free lifetime memberships. as time went on, they backed out im guessing due to the recession. they limited what all users could do and then offered free gold memberships with the requirement of providing your credit card number promising to bill you ONLY once your trial was over.

i signed up for the gold membership and was billed before my trial was over. the telephone number on the website, does not work. i contacted the website via email days before my trial ended and never got a response. that is until i had to call my bank to retract the charge to which then sugardaddyforme.com refunded my money after me having to have contacted my bank due to their negligence as a "company".

they offered to cancel my acct and give a free month membership. i declined the membership. I told them to immediately cancel my account after having to have told them to cancel it nearly 6 times before. [continued below]....

..... once over the phone (which i had to get the working number from my bank statement) AFTER i had to have my bank retract the illegal charge. i was told i would be contacted over the phone and never was.

here we are two months later, and they have withdrawn 600.00 from my bank acct. my acct with the website has been terminated, im guessing as i have not tried to log back in assuming that if i did, they'd consider that a chance to reactivate the acct and charge me once again.. what they are doing, is ILLEGAL! $600.00!!!!!!! they have stolen from me TWICE! this is unacceptable and i STRONGLY advice anyone to avoid their site, services at all costs! -or it'll cost YOU!


  *EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back into your bank account that someone wrongfully takes it from you!  


  

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back! HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO: Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E. According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days. If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges. Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent! DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get. And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state. Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth. If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form. <

#1 Consumer Suggestion

www.sugardaddyforme.com scam

AUTHOR: Mark - (United States of America)

When www.sugardaddyforme.com has billed your credit card
without your permission you can do something called a chargeback with your
bank. Call up your bank; tell them www.sugardaddyforme.com billed you without
your permission and chargeback. Your bank will contact the credit card
processor that www.sugardaddyforme.com uses and they will file a complaint with
the credit card processor or merchant, in order for you to receive a refund for
the wrongfully billed transaction. According to visa and MasterCard, www.sugardaddyforme.com
can only have about a 2% chargeback ratio. That means for every 100 people that
they bill, only about 2 of them can request that they were billed wrongfully
before visa and MasterCard starts to investigate transactions being processed
by www.sugardaddyforme.com that are not authorized. The result is that their
credit card processor will eventually terminate the ability for
www.sugardaddyforme.com to process credit cards on their website. Also, notice
that what appears on the billing statement is different from what
www.sugardaddyforme.com really does. It's is not a web marketing website it is
a website that involves dating. Dating is classified as high risk in regards to
the credit card processing world. www.sugardaddyforme.com is doing something in
the industry called "factoring." That is against visa and MasterCard
policy.  Your voice counts. Let your bank know that you want your money
back and that you are doing a "chargeback". www.sugardaddyforme.com
needs to stop taking advantage of people and this is one of the only ways to
make that happen. Notify your bank today.  When more and more people start
complaining about charges that were not authorized, their credit card processor
will shut off their ability to process credit cards so no one else gets
scammed.

Update:

AUTHOR: ZorroHaan - (United States of America)

I lost my other contact information so i had to create a new account. After I contacted my bank and cancelled my card so as they wouldn't be able to withdraw any more funds, the problem was fixed. i have never, ever, ever had that problem, ever with none of my transactions and as soon as that was changed, it stopped.. never happened again.. the bank looked into the matter right away and refunded my money. there was a 30 day period where the funds were temporary as they looked into it and tried to contact the account holder who withdrew the $600.00 dollars from my account without permission.. i received a letter that they had not heard back so my funds were then secured. they no longer have access to my bank I'm guessing because my card was changed.. if anyone is experiencing a similar issue with this website or any other, cancel your card asap! the longer you wait, the higher your chances of them doing this to you. cancel or change your card right away.

i browsed changes to the site and they now no longer make credit/debit card the main form of payment, they now accept money orders but they do encourage you to send the amt of the monthly membership x 3 for the next 2 months as well and i believe they now do e-checks.. not to mention, that they have a gay version of the same website called richgaysugardaddy.com. guys, beware because the fraud that has to be placed through this company on countless of people, has got to be astounding! i'm surprised nobody has taken any action and that their websites are still even active. sugardaddyforme.com was created in 2004 on the 5th of april and richgaysugardaddy.com was created in 2008 on the 12th of february and both were registered by godaddy.com. i don't know whether or not their registrar site is the hosting one or if they could be contacted to do something about this but all one can do is broadcast ripoffreport.com to other friends so that eventually it gains enough momentum and people would be wise enough to search this before going into anything that involved these people or any like them. be well. cheers.

follow-up

AUTHOR: Zorro - (USA)

i've contacted my bank first thing this morning. they've told me until the payment posts, they cannot stop the transaction. i've canceled my card and that should be taken care of as far as my acct being charged once again. i mentioned in the original report how they have taken a very large sum of money from my acct. i have used my card number only through paypal transactions (which im absolutely postitively sure no one has the password) i have several firewalls running on my system so the probability of hacking, is VERY VERY slim. if someone was able to hack my computer, i wouldnt even go through the trouble of protecting it. i'd just give them my entire system for their efforts. its that well guarded.

the charger for the 600.00 on the bank statement comes in a different name than the original 'UNITED..' that sdforme.com uses. i had them blocked from my acct previously and as i said, for my online transactions i use only paypal. giving the information to sdforme.com is one scenario where i would've stuck my guns and boy did i learn my lesson. my funds have been frozen until the post clears so that the bank can retract the sum. its been nearly a week since the charge posted so if anyone reads this, update your bank alerts to receive any notifications of withdrawals just to be safe. i wish i had done it sooner.

the name which withdrew the funds from my acct this time is different than the original billing name sdforme.com used. im making sure i state that several times for anyone reading this. whether sdforme.com is engaging in further fraudulent and illegal activity is your guess as good as mine, but i can tell you from being cautious with my acct that the only suspicious activity i have EVER had, has been from the first time they charged me without my permission. i caution that you do business with them at your own peril. i'll come and keep updating on progress.
