Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In June, I received an E-Mail from Phonelinx, a division of Globalinx, informing me that they were sending me a "free" telephone credit card, and that they had received my ADDRESS and CREDIT CARD NUMBER from TigerDirect.com, a computer supplies net business from whom I had just ordered some equipment.

I never gave TigerDirect permission to give my financial information to outside companies, and I never agreed to the account they had set up for me. I called the number on the e-mail and instructed them to cancel this fraudulent account forthwith.

The person I spoke with assured me that the account would be cancelled. Nevertheless, on my July statement for my AMEX OPTIMA credit card, Globalinx billed me 49.95. I will never again do business with TigerDirect, and I advise all of you to beware of the thieves at Globalinx aka Phonelinx aka Orion.

I ordered from Tigerdirect.com a while back. ..We need to find out who else is giving our information

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

We need to find a common denominator here.
Tigerdirect.com seems like one of the places that is sharing our Credit card information to Globallinx. We need to find out who else is giving our information to these people. I know I use my card for alot of different online places. So for those of you who only use it once in a while, we need to pool all the information together and find out who else could be giving our information to these people....
