Back in 2003 I purchased an item from Classic Closeouts.com and needed to return it. I called to obtain an RMA number as required and sent it back. After over 2-3 weeks I still hadn't received the refund and when I emailed and/or called them, I never got a response back. I ultimately never received the refund. I just let it go since the refund was for less than $20 and couldn't get a hold of them anyway. I reminded myself to remember to stay from this site.

Fast forward to 2008, July to be exact, I received a charge to the credit card that Classic Closeouts has on file for $79.99. I disputed that charge because I knew I hadn't ordered anything from them since 2003. Then a couple weeks later I believe, I saw a second charge for $69.99. I called to dispute this charge as well. I was issued temporary credits for both bogus charges and on Oct. 8, 2008, received a letter stating the first charge for $79.99 was resolved.

Here it is Oct. 29, 2008 and I receive a letter from my credit card company stating that Classic Closeouts states that the charge for $69.99 is valid. The enclosed information states that I signed up for a frequent shopper club through ThirdFREE.com, a sister company to Classic Closeouts. I have never heard of this site or the frequent shopper club. I never would have authorized a charge for $69.99 for this type of service. They state they will not refund the charge because "the customer specifically physically selected which program they desired to enroll." Bogus! I did no such thing.

Luckily my credit card company is going to look into this matter further and I signed the letter stating that the charge is fraudulent and will return it to my credit card company and hopefully it will be resolved quickly.
