Consumer First ripoff Tampa Florida
I received a call last night from a company who would not give me there name. All they wanted to know was if i had a bank account. Which i am not crazy so i told them no and got hung up on real fast. Then today i recieved my lovely letter from consumer first that i had been approved for a credit card. Of course I was a little unsure of this letter when i did not see a website,a phone #, or more instructions about this company. I started to check them out and saw this report, and very happy I did. I do believe this is a rip off, because this is not the first letter i have recieved from these thiefs. I had recieved one about a three years ago. So as this shows this company has been doing this for a long time, and at that time they would send the cataloge with out the money. So I guess you can say they wised up a little.

Consumer First ripoff Tampa Florida
I was sent a Acceptance Certificate from them saying that I had guaranteed approval for a Consumer First Platinum Card with a credit line of &5,000. They wanted $45.00 for standard processing and delivery or $49.00 for Rush. This is a scam. I believe that they have been going by other names so recognize the scam and not the company name. Beware!!! Audra Birmingham, Alabama

Consumer First ripoff Tampa Florida
My husband & I just recieved a letter from Consumer First, saying we could send in $45.00, and get a platinum card with a credit line of $5,000.00. Thank heavens I decided to check the company out on the internet. I feel sorry for all the people that were ripped off, but also, I thank them for reporting it, to save other people their money. The company won't get as much money as they were hoping for, thanks to people and sites like this one. I wish you all luck in getting your money back. Again, Thank You for saving me the same trouble.

Consumer First Rip-off
I am an 18 year old trying to get a credit card. I have been rejected from many credit card companys. One day I opened my mail and found a letter saying that i am already approved for a platium credit card w/$5,000 credit limit and 0%APR with a one time only $49 membership fee. I was so exited I finally was approved!!! Then as I started to think about it why would some one give an 18 year old kid a $5,000 credit limit and a 0%APR When i have no past credit history. So I got suspiciuos and looked for the company on the internet. Then I found this ripoff page and I have a friend who works for a news station and we are going to expose this company for the con artist that they really are! Jonathan Bellaire, TexasU.S.A.

Consumer First scam consumer fraud ripoff Tampa Florida
I reveived an acceptance certificate congratulating me to receive a Consumer First platinum card with a credit limit of $5,000, with 0% APR for 1st 12 months. In order to receive this platinum card there was a one-time only membership fee of $45.00. To good to be true, it is. Printed on the form was no application or credit check necessary. In reading between the fine lines no one out there is going to process a credit limit of $5,000.00 without any obtaining any financial history. Sad thing in order to expedit rush processing and delivery they are trying to obtain an additional $4.00 and have indicated that your request cannont be processed without this fee. This consumer fraud needs to be stopped so that honest tax paying citizens are not taken advantage of. Luckily I was able to detect this ripoff and did not fall for this scam.

Consumer First ripoff consumer fraud ripoff Tampa Florida
I have received the same certifcate that many other's have offering the 5k @ 0% for 12 months and to be increased to PRIME PLUS or approximately 14.49% thereafter. This is not the first time that I have received this certificate. But it is the first time I have investigated it. The cetificate does NOT have a telephone number where you can contact their office and it only has a po box... many compaies do use a po box BUT there is always a TELEPHONE number to contact them for any questions or assistance... I have received the certificate from these people. There is another company that MAY/MAY NOT be connected with them. Their name is American Credit Solutions located at 4618 N. Hale, Ste 102 tampa, fl 33614 BUT there is an toll free number 800-564-2517 with operation hours of 9am-10pm mon-fri sat 10am-6pm (est time) There offer is almost the same. They offer a limit of 4k. If these card companies were/are on the up and up. then the offer is good. Many people shop from a catalog any how or even via internet. shopping by catalog can be accomidating to many. But, if these compinies are actually ripping people off buy geting them to send in $45 a pop. That is a lot of money. If 300 people responed @ $45; that equals to $13,500. I have not sent in the money they requested from me. People please be careful with YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY. pamela chicago, Illinois

I needed some money to start my own business and I sent off $49 and within a month I recievedthis fake card to order this crappy products and you have to put a down payment to order these products and 15% of your down payment for shipping and handling. You are not really using your card at all. This is what I didn't want!! I want a refund!!!If anyone recieved a letter about a platinum card from Tampa Flordia do not respond or you will be SORRY.

Consumer First consumer fraud ripoff Tampa Florida
This is one more report about consumer first. I received a solicitation asking me to activate a card which was already booked for me. It said that this was a guaranteed approval with a $5,000 credit limit and $45 one time fee. I was intrigued by this solicitation and found it rather strange. A quick check on the internet and this site confirmed my suspicions. Want to share some of the things to look out for in such solicitations to prevent being taken for a ride: 1. The solicitation didn't mention anywhere whether this was a visa/mastercard/amex/discover/diners club card. 2. Normally, the annual/monthly fees are credited to your new credit card. This offer asked for money order/check beforehand which was rather strange. 3. There was no website, no fine prints, no explanation of the terminology, no disclaimers - too good to be true and too unprofessional. so look for these things the next time you get a credit card solicitation.

BEWARE THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE ..... I got a pre-aprroval letter in the mail on 11/20/2002 stating that I get a 5,000 credit limit. But it had no phone number or adress and it did not specify if it was a visa, mastercard or what. So, I tried to look up the website on the internet and I found this. I am so grateful to have not sent the $5.oo fee because now I know it was only for catalog use. THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WROTE ABOUT THIS FRADULENT COMPANY. Lori San Diego, California

Consumer First consumer money suckers Tampa Florida
I received a letter congratulating me for a guaranteed credit line approval of $5,000.00. Of course like many other Americans trying to make ends meet, that was very tempting Only $45.00 (49.00 express). I don't remember ever having applied for a credit card, especially from this company. The letter didn't look authentic to me (now they know and probably will change its looks), so I decided to give them a call. Well low and behold, no phone number. How does one make a rational decision on an offer being made to you when you can't discuss the matter with someone affiliated with the company. I found alot of information about this Consumer First on the internet and that was enough to convince me on their credibility.......RIPOFFS! Sarah Wrangell, AlaskaU.S.A.

I am one of the unlucky ones. I found this website too late. I have already sent my check to this company-Consumer First for rush delivery of what I thought was a real credit card and it was cashed about three weeks ago. I still haven't received anything either. I am planning on returning the catalog that everyone has been writing about and calling the numbers for a refund. Does anyone know any other way to try and get my $49 I wrote a check for back? Please, next time you get a deal that seems too good to be true, check Thanks for the help because without these reports I would have never known what a fraud this company is.

They sent me a card in the mail for a credit line of 5,000 and i had to pay $49.00 for card. Then i received a catalog, there is nothing i would order, there is nothing worth spending a 5,000 credit limit on. I didn't know you couldn't use it for anything but what is in the catalog,and i wouldn't pay 10.00 for anything in the catalog.. And has anyone that has got this catalog and card tried to order from it? and did they ever get the stuff back in the mail? please let me know if so and more about this.
