Hi my name is Tina and I have been royally ripped off . I purchased 2dayslimdown from Momentum Direct and I paid for my trial purchase of $4.97, then when I didn't return the product, my checking account was charged the amount of $49.95, which I was willing to pay because I kept the product.

My checking account was charged an additional $58.93 on or about 2 months after the last withdrawal and now about 22 days later another withdrawal from my checking account was taken for the same amount of $58.93.

I spoke with the people at Momentum Direct at 1-281-356-1400 and they told me that I would be reimbursed for the money anywhere from 2 to 3 business days from this conversation.

I was never reimbursed for the first withdrawal and I called them several times , they gave me another number to call 1-281-356-9939. So I called that number several times , different times of the day also. That number kept referring me to the website. Momentumdirect.net. Which you can not get any customer service through the website.

Then when my checking account was again withdrawn for the second $58.93 I called the bank and they are going to look into getting my money back, but I don't have faith in that . I'll probably wind up paying to have the bank stop Momentum from taking any more money .

I called Momentum again and they said they would notify the manager that was on the floor (whatever that means) of my phone call and they would give him my phone number and I would be getting a call in the next couple of days . Yeah right!

So beware and don't get caught up in something like this. When you think it can't happen to you. Wow, how wrong can you be.

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


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!


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.


If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.

Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck Let us know how you do!
