I recived a phone call from prosperica on sep. 19th. At first I was a little lerry, but I thought with my poor credit rating this was the way to turn it around. They promised me a master card with 0% intrest for the first three year and 9% after that. they aslo said there was an upfornt fee of $259.00 one time only.

On Sep. 21 they debited my account for $249.00 wich I tought was a little wierd. Needless to say nothing has ever come in the mail. All of the phone numbers they gave me to check on the status of the master card have been disconected.

Thats when i decided to go on-line and see what I could find out. Besides all of the people who have posted simmilar stories on this site, I found a new paper article from canada I copied and pasted it here. It is so sad that the honest people in the world have to deal with thing of this nature.

Sep. 30, 2005

Police shut down two Etobicoke telemarketing offices and one Calgary, Alberta location earlier this week in connection with an alleged credit card scam.

70,000 VICTIMS
The operation, which is said to have started in 2002, allegedly defrauded 70,000 people in the United States of $249 (U.S.) each under the pretense of obtaining guaranteed credit cards with $2,000 limits.

Police said its operators used several company names including Centurion Financial Benefits, Guardian Financial Benefits, Spectra Financial Benefits, Integra Financial Benefits, Sureway Financial benefits, Simple Choice Financial Benefits, Oxford Financial Benefits and Prosperica Benefits, to target American citizens with bad credit.

The Toronto Strategic Partnership in Deceptive Telemarketing, Toronto Police's fraud squad, Ontario Provincial Police, the Competition Bureau and various other organizations were involved in the investigation.
