Privacymatters123 Ripped Me Off When I signed Up for Classmates.com Internet
*Author of original report: Privacymatters123 did refund my money
*Consumer Comment: not just classmates the one called my life was renions
They billed my Visa debit card 19.95, as per the ad.
About a week later I saw another charge of 19.95 posted on my checking account. After a little research I found that this wasn't Classmates, but a company called Privacymatters123.com . I plugged their name into Google and found that they are a credit monitoring service that charges 19.95 per month to "monitor" my credit, whatever that means.
I have never pulled a credit report from the internet, never signed up for any service.
When I called Privacymatters123.com they said that their service was 19.95 per month and that I signed up for it on Classmates.com when I took a "Credit Survey" on the site. Bullsh_t!!...I never take "surveys" on the internet...never have, never will. I very rarely even get any spam. I'm real careful on the internet, mainly because of predators like this.
A little more investigation told me that this is a regular practice for Classmates and this company. I assume Classmates.com sells your info to Privacymatters123.com . If I were not careful about monitoring my checking account, this practice would have continued month after month, a cost of $240 per year.
I have since canceled my debit card and reported them to 3 outside agencies. There are tons of negative reports about these people.
