Complaint Review: Blue Line Crate
Blue Line Crate Vision MarketingConfederate-SuperstoreHistorical Southern Flag Unauthorized charges related to a fraudulent Facebook marketing scheme Texas
I was the victim of a predatory ordering scheme by a company called Blue Line Crate, also known by various other names. A few months ago, I clicked a link from Facebook to the company offering a "free" initial order with a subscription that could be canceled prior to any charges, which would occur 30 days later. I did order, and then I attempted to cancel. I found that the phone number on their website did not work, the "manage subscription" link also did not work, and there was no way to contact them that way. I did send a message through their Facebook link and told them to cancel my subscription.
On 05/04/17, I received an email from Blue Line advising me my parcel was on its way, that I would be charged $19.97 and now providing a phone number. I did not order anything from them! The email directed contact via text message only to (936) 224-7006. I texted them and said I did not have a subscription with them and to cancel anything they have in my name. I received a text message reply that they have now canceled the subscription and asking me if I wished to receive the two additional crates that were owed to me? I told them no and asked if they would be processing a full refund or do I need to dispute the charges. There was no reply to this or follow-up messages and no one answers this phone when I attempt to call.
I did some research and found four charges attributed to this company, which go by several names:
04/30/17 Vision Marketing Inter Spring TX $19.97
03/31/17 Confederate-Superstore 888-799-3068 TX $19.97
02/28/17 HistoricalSouthernFlag 888-799-3068 TX $19.97
02/02/17 HistoricalSouthernFlag 888-799-3068 TX $19.97
I note that the charges for February, March and April are all using different names, which I believe is an attempt to escape fraud detection.
An Internet check reveals fraud reports for these companies, some of which have already been tied together.
