Messrs. Active Plus Messrs. Active + Further to my report to your company on Salt Lake City UTAH
                                                                                              6.10.17 Dear Sirs,                                                                         6th Oct 2017 Further to my report to your establishment on 28th of Sept. 2017, I have been billed again for the third time by Active Plus youth cream for another amount of USD 103.95 ( Sin $ 143.59 ) without my consent. I have now instructed my Bankers to cancel that particular Credit Card. I tried to email this company to stop them from sending Fake creams, and to stop charging my Credit Card but Microsoft reported back that Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups . It further went on to say Your message wasn't delivered. Despite repeated attempts to deliver your message, the recipient's email system refused to accept a connection from your email system . I will forward Microsoft full Text to you by separate Mail, as I do not know how to copy and paste.  I then tried to call their Toll-Free nos. in the U.S.' but the telephone operator said that that Toll-Free number cannot be used. The whole idea is to block all communications from us, so that we cannot cancel our order, nor claim their 100% Risk-Free Money Back Guarantee. What a tricky set-up.  Regarding another complaint by another of your subscribers ( Maz - Sydney - Australia) dated 9th August 2017, I like to advice him that the Scam company is Active Plus ( Active +) of U.S.A. and not Ascendia Sin 004001 or Fulfilment House P.O.Box 4001 as stated in his Report. They are just forwarding agents ( cargo agents). At first I had the same misunderstanding. But be careful, this Scam company can go round changing names or brands.   Please refer to my next email regarding the full text from Microsoft on how they blocked communications. Many thanks. Joyce Chua - Singapore.

Also, the client is informed up front about the finances needed to cover the plan set aside for that particular company. Nevada Corporate Headquarters believes most complaints have come from former employees. Lastly, the company has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Ms. Loggins says that as a result of the complaints, the Nevada Corporate Headquarters has implemented several changes to help increase the quality of its customers’ experience. One of the changes being the voicemail system. This increase ensures messages left are being directed to the right employee.

Indep Plus Visa ripoff Internet *EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back into your bank account!
i dont know who this company is did not apply for a card they just taking money out of my account i just want my money back and they need to be punish. they took 17.95 17.95 .54 159.00 out of my account. Michelle d mobile, AlabamaU.S.A. EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back! HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO: Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E. According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days. If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges. Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent! DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get. And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state. Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth. If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form. CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here. Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action. And good luck Let us know how you do!

I read a recent rip-off report on this site and wanted to share a similar experience with Active Periodicals. My nighmare with this company begain in 2002. This company has also snowed when it comes to this endless harassment and refusal to stop sending me magazines and stop charging my bank account. I have even moved and changed banks and they have somehow managed to follow me. When asked to discontinue, stop sending magazines (most of which I have never even asked for at the beginning of when they started this swindle). Whenever they have called, I have repeatly tell them to stop and they give the song and dance that I have a binding contract that I can not get out of and then try to change the magazines I am recieving by adding on another contract. Ii have even gone to my bank and asked them to stop this company from automatically withdrawing from my account. They attempted to put a stop to any withdraw from this company for a six month period but somehow Active Periodicals found a loop hole and they continue to withdraw $58.28 every month. Who has advice on what else I can do to stop this. This company is a 'snake in the grass. Help ! Lizabeth Nashville, TennesseeU.S.A.

Active 24 ripoff Netherlands Internet
On 18 October I attempted to register a domain name with the domain hosting company, active 24, online. I went through the process of payment four times and each time was met with an error message. I then moved on and registered the name with another company - successfully. However, I was still billed by active 24 for the sum of 3.51 for each of the four attempts - 14.04 in all. I wrote to the company to report this on the 22 October beginning the process of trying to get the money refunded. There have been numerous emails back and forth with a customer service agent by the name of Merijn Lotter. It appears that their offices are located in the Netherlands. He asked that I fax my bank account statement to him as proof of the transaction. This cost me a further 2.00 at the newsagent as I do not own a fax machine. Despite confirming that he has received this and me providing him with all the information I have regarding the transactions, he says that the company is unable to refund the money as they have no record on their system. This seems to me to be a blatant scam. It is now more than six weeks since the money was taken from my account and they have stopped replying to my emails. In all the customer service has been appalling. I have attempted to phone the company on several occasions but have been put on hold for up to 15 minutes at a time and they were still unable to help me! Luckily I did not lose much money but have posted this complaint to help prevent others getting ripped off in the same way. So in short, DO NOT use this company. Patrick bathUnited Kingdom

One month after paying the registration fee and the donation amount I was charged $59.95 for an annual membership.

Active-Domain Wholly Unacctable Performance Internet
I have used active-domain for approximately 14 years for email forwarding of two domains. At the end of 2014, an ongoing series of episodes with email forwarding downtime of several days in duration began.The only support contact available is a web support portal for which responses only occur overnight for US time zones. The support habitually prematurely closes tickets without resolving the root cause. Only after reopening tickets multiple times will proper remediation action on the root cause be undertaken. The issues with my email forwarding have resurfaced multiple times requiring another series of multi-day delays while running through marginally effective the support process.This is a wholly unacceptable performance for such a fundamental service as email forwarding.

When I pushed the issue, they agreed to stop, but i don't get my money back. they get your credit card number and you're in trouble. they use your first recording to verify the second subscription. Buyers BEWARE That's 9 payments of 39.95 that's $359.55 that they took with- out my permission, after I told them no. My stupidity. I will be checking my statements a little closer from now on.

Active Periodicals ripoff Deerfield Beach Florida
This is a letter i wrote to a collection agency that api sicked on me for more money to their fraudulent subscrition deal. Luebke Baker & Associates,Inc. Active Periodicals has contracted your office to collect a debt they say I owe. Active periodicals contacted me by telemarketing and I signed up for a subscription where they were to take three payments of $55.00 to pay for it. These were monthly payments on my mastercard. After the three payments they took a fourth and then a fifth payment before I caught it. I contacted them and it was then that they said the subscription was for 12 payments. I canceled the subscription right then and told them not to send any more magazines. They said they would stop sending the magazines and that my subscription was then canceled but that they would continue to bill my credit card. I then called mastercard and told them the situation and they reversed the last two payments active periodicals billed me and stopped the ability for them to bill me again. The person I spoke to at capitol one told me they had received several complaints on active periodicals concerning they same issue and had them listed as a possible scam company. I spoke to the consumer protection agency and they advised me to get the voice recording of the subscription deal I made with active periodicals. Active periodicals refused to send me a copy. They said I signed a waiver of the deal stating I would pay for 12 months instead of 3. The only paper I signed was a paper to send them stating I wanted them to send me a free watch. I certainly dispute owing active periodicals any more money. And If at all possible I would like your company to get a copy of the voice conversation I had with active periodicals that they said was the contract on the phone. Perhaps with the recording the company could be prosecuted for the way they do business and it would also clear up this matter. 08 /30/04 John belgrade, MontanaU.S.A.

I just want to confirm all the other ripoff reports about this company. I am ashamed of this but I am an ex employee of this company. They tell us to read the pitch word for word and never take no as an answer. Always use objections and be very strong when going for the credit card. Once they send the order to the confirmation dept. it can NEVER be canceled. It is public record that the guy who owns this company is Marvin Kravits and he lives in the posh area of Boca Raton, Florida. He does have a listed phone no# and I suggest calling this ass and telling him what he can do with his books and magazines. There should be a law against companies that do this kind of business.

I got charged for an item then never received it-now won't refund money ..... when i called to place the order on mar 18 for a slide board they said it would ship within a few days & they would call w/tracking number. product never came so i called again & was told it would ship & they would call w/ a tracking number. this went on several times only to finally find out on Apr 28 it is no longer available so they would credit my account or send me a check. i wanted the card to be creditted. after 2-3 days of processing i called the credit card company to find out it was not creditted. it was actually paid through pay pal company using my credit card. so i called them to find out nothing was creditted there either. so i emailed active fun & fitness on sat. may 3 to which i received my first response from them-the email said a check was issued & that DJ would get back to me on mon may5 with info on when it shipped & a check number. well as of today i received neither a phone call w/ the info or a check. i heard that it is illegal for a company to charge you for a product if it is not in stock & they do not send it. this whole ordeal has taken 7 weeks & i would like action to be taken against companies that take your money for a product then give you a line of B.S. every time you talk to them-if & when you can get a hold of them.

Active Periodicals Ripoff, scam, invasive, non existant Not Available Florida
This company is a scam!!! They bothered us many times over. Any time I approached them to leave us alone (over 20 times) they'd hang up and call back again to speak only to my wife. Claimed they had a credit card # and threatened to use it unless we picked out magazines we wanted. Locked us into a 4 year contract. Have been billing $40 / month and have never seen any magazines. Have tried to contact above number which shows up on bank statement but there is no answer. Bank is disputing it and hopefully we can get a refund. Lesson learned, hopefully we don't have to worry about credit ratings. Brett Omaha, NebraskaU.S.A.

Active Periodicals ripoff magazines Deerfield Beach Florida
Bought magazines for $58.28 to pay for one year. Field&Stream, Discover,Hot Rod and U.S. News & World Report. Was to pay 58.28 monthly for 12 payments then recieve U.S News for 4 years and the other magazines for 2 years. Now tonight I recieve a phone call telling me that the verbal contract was to pay 58.28 for 4 years and recive the magazines for 6 years. The salesperson tells me there is no way to cancel but she can help me out by lowering my obligation to 19$ a month. The payments were made for the full year. I have asked to see a written contract and listen to the verbal agreement she said ok, but have not recieved anything yet. Guess I will have to close checking account tommorrow then contact attorney.(Any other ideas?) Steve Lakewood, ColoradoU.S.A.

Active Periodicals Stealing my money! Deerfield Beach Florida
My story starts on June, 14th 2006. At least that is when Active Periodicals SAY our account was started, however at the time, my husband (who was the one that signed up for this crazy thing) and I were in Nebraska for a visit, not in our home in North Carolina. So if Active called and set up an account with my husband, it would mean that they called our cell phone. And how would they get that number? I guess the Shadow knows...ha ha. Anyway, we get back to North Carolina and I start getting strange magazines in the mail. Like Fast Company, Sporting News, and Weekly World News (you know the one I mean, the one with Bat-boy and Sasquatch on the cover). I ask my husband, What the hell? and he tells me that he signed up for these magazines for me. He couldn't tell me how long the contract was for, only that we would be paying 50 some dollars a month for a year. I decided to just let it go, because he was leaving for South Korea in November. So after he leaves for his year-long tour, I change my mailing address to his mother's in Portsmouth, VA because that's where I was going to be staying. Still getting the crazy magazines, so I try to call and change them. No luck. File a complaint with the BBB, and THAT gets their attention! They call me and are very apologetic and mail me out a list of the magazines that I can change to, no problem. And everything is pretty hunky-dory for a while. Fast forward to June 22nd, 2007. I had just landed in Nebraska, where my parents live, to live here for a while. Active calls my cell phone, and I say, Boy am I glad you guys called, I need to change my address. So they say they will, and try to get me to renew my contract, since I am such a wonderful customer. I say no, and the guy goes on with his spiel. At least I think he does, because my cell phone was getting bad reception, I was jet-lagged, and I was fixing a bottle for my daughter. Come to find out the next time I check my bank account, that they had signed me up for another account! I called them up and said, The hell I did, lady and she said, Oh yes you did, we have you on tape And I figure there is nothing I can do. So I ask, well What is the address you have on file? and it is the address in Virginia! I told them to change the address back and cancel my second account. I wound up paying 300 to cancel both accounts and haven't got any magazines (except for one stray Sporting News) since. I don't know if they are getting any mags at my mother-in-law's house. I called Active every day until I got a letter in the mail saying my accounts have been closed. I finally got it, and just got off the phone with them telling them that they need to lose any information they have on me. p.s. I find it very humorous that when you Google Active Periodicals you don't even get their website, just a bunch of sites that have people complaining about them. :) Sarah Kenesaw, Nebraska

Active Periodicals ripoff Deerfield Beach Florida
My husband has been sucked into the Active Periodicals Magazine scam. He contracted with them for over $700 worth of magazines a couple of years ago, unbeknownst to me at the time. I was livid, but figured it was his right. Then in February 05 he was called by them and asked if he was satisfied with the service he was receiving. Somehow they managed to get him to agree to extending his contract to the tune of another $500. When they sent us a thank you for your new subscription notice in August 2005 I was stunned by their audacity! There were now double billings from them appearing on my husband's credit card. When he called to find out what the hell was going on they said he had 3 accounts-he of course immediately disputed this, and finally said enough was enough-they could charge him a one time fee for the second account, were to close the fraudulently opened third account, and were to place him on their do-not-call list. A few days later we got a paid in full notice from them. Then tonight (surprise surprise) he received a call from Scott from Active Periodicals, who's computer shows you've only paid for 11 months and had no knowledge (supposedly) of the account being paid in full. We have had it - I'm going to advise my husband to close this particular credit card account so they can no longer bill him, and have obtained a complaint form from my state consumer protction agency. I will also direct him to this site to read the other complaints-maybe he'll learn a thing or two from others who have experienced the same trouble! Janet Lorton, VirginiaU.S.A.

Active Painting Tony Worse paint job EVER Shelby, Michigan
Wow, where to begin. My house is 2 stories with brick being the majority of the bottom half, large porch and 4 pillars. He gave us a quote (which I believe he under estimated, not my fault). He showed up with one other guy to do all the caulking, which we needed. He left the other guy alone to caulk and he took off for hours, leaving the poor gentleman with no help and not enough caulk to finish the job! When he got back, mind you he staryed at 9am, they painted the shutters in the grass, trampled my flowers, got paint on my pristine porhc and drive way. On top of all that, he changed his mind on doing the bottom half of my house, so the top is burgandy and gray anf the bottom is bright white! Ughhh. Now he wants $300-400 more to do the gutters, porchand pillers!! Dont use them EVER!!
