My father has been charged $19.95 twice monthly from his debit card a total of $39.90 for the past several months. $19.95 from WC FUNSOURCE MONT. and $19.95 from WC VALUE PLUS. He had no idea of where or what these charges were for. I called their 800 number of which I was told that these charges were authorized. I told the person that no charges were authorized and asked for a confirmation. They could not provide a confirmation. They also said that they would never make these charges unless it was authorized. My father NEVER authorized such a charge. Apparently there are MANY others who have reported similar unauthorized charges. I asked Membership Services to cancel any future "fraudulent" charges and they gave me a confirmation number.

Upon receiving this confirmation, I accompanied my father to his bank with the information and filed a claim against this company to have these charges stopped and request a full refund. The bank will investigate the matter on my fathers behalf. In the meantime, we were able to cancel his card and account and re-opened a new account so that these scam artists will no longer be able to withdraw funds. I know this seems like perhaps an extreme measure to take but consumers must protect themselves from these types of SCAMS. Contact your bank or credit card company NOW.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Tis sad but more then likey your father did unknowingly authorize the charges.

AUTHOR: Pardel - (U.S.A.)

It would be my guess that like so many before him your father has been the victim of a new way of signing consumers up for unwanted services or products.
Usually what happens in these cases (it has happened to both myself and my husband in the past as well) is a consumer innocently goes on line, or sometimes even through the mail, and orders a product or a trial. Hidden somewhere deep in the terms and agreements or maybe pages deep in the website will be a little disclosure saying by ordering this product you also are agreeing to be signed up for other products or services, sometimes not just from the company you are ordering the product from but also from their sister companies as well. All it amounts to is another scam to part consumers from as much money as they possibly can. These companies don't care if it is an elderly person on a fixed income or a single mom trying to take care of her children. Their bottom line is how many charges can they get through before the consumer catches on.
