A follow up call after my wife ordered a "Tummy Tuck System" thanked us for the order then said, "We will also be sending you "Budget Savers" and Shoppers Advantage". The big hook was that I would receive $100 in gas vouchers to use regardless of choosing to cancel or not.

Then they asked that I verify my credit card number. (which I don't think they had in the first place when I had time to think after the call) I then checked online to see what I could find out about these offers and found the word "scam" associated to them by numerous "rip-off" complaints from other victims.

Within the hour I e-mailed both "Budget Savers" and "Shoppers Advantage" and instructed them to Immediately Cancel me from everything they talked me into and make no charges to my credit card. I am waiting to see!

I'm waiting also

AUTHOR: Chris - (United States of America)

I did get lured in by an offer of a discount voucher on a purchase I was making at Christmas time.

I never received the information or discount voucher, and because of that I had forgotten about signing up.  When I started seeing the charges on my account  had no way to even know a "member number" or a way to contact this company to cancel because I had never received the information.

by the time I was charged the 2nd $16.99, I was able to figure out the member number and phone number from the charge  TLG*SHOPPER77740932FEB 800-5264848 CT

I called yesterday 3/5/13 and got mad about them charging me when I had never activated the card, never used any services, and had never received the card or any documentation. Demanding that they cancel immediately, and refund the charges. I got the response that they would not refund as set by the terms the were agreed to. I continued to press, irritated, that I had no way to cancel, since I had not received any information, explaining how I had to decipher the charge information just to get in contact with them.

the person who answered the phone, asked me to hold, came back 5 minutes later and said they would refund the most recent $16.99 charge only.  I am waiting and watching for that refund..  and told them I would be posting anywhere I could on the internet about how this company Ripped Me Off.. so here I am

Shoppers Advantage/Budget Savers/Great Fun

All of these so called sister companies are involved in a wide spread SCAM. Even when you cancel immediately they charge you the 1$ trial fee charge. If they do that to millions with the thinking that folks won't raise a fuss over the 1$ charge... they make millions. I wish they could trace these companies and find the Scumbag who is behind this. I think a good drag down a gravel road is in order!

Cancelled but still getting their package

AUTHOR: Angryman - (United States of America)

Even though I cancelled by e-mail within the hour of the sales call I may still be receiving a coupon package. In an e-mail following the one that acknowleged my cancellation notice I then get an e-mail with a "Membership Number" and a "Cancellation Number". - I can only imagine that this was done to slip a charge on my credit card for the time it took to acknowlege my cancellation and issue me a number so they could make bogus charges to my credit card who I also notified.
