Mwi Simple Escapes aka Mwi Connections rip-off! Fraudulent billing dishonest and unhelpful! Connecticut
Apparently I enrolled in some deal to get a $25 gift certifcate from this MWI simple connections in aggreement to pay 14.95. After I cancelled the account and they reimbursed the 14.95, they billed me again and re-enrolled me in their other company, so I got billed twice!!! I just noticed, two months later that in the time since I cancelled, they billed me FOUR TIMES each month, causing several overdraft fees to my account and won't reimburse a DIME! Thats a grand total of over $300. I know there are others that had this happen to them...I am in Oklahoma and would like to do something about it...someone please help! Travis edmond, OklahomaU.S.A.

MWI-Member Works Inc, Simple Escapes, Connections, Esstentials ripoff, twice in three years Omaha Nebraska
I did the 30 day trial and decided to cancel my membership and onthe same day they charged $14.95 to my account. I have called them and they said they will reverse it but we'll see. I didn't realize it until I saw their name on my statement but I had the same problem with the same company 2 years ago. My husband ordered something over the phone and along with the purchase there was a $139.95 charge from a MWI Connections. We had never heard of the company and tried like hell to get their phone number anf finally got it and they reversed the charge but bank had charged a $30 overdraft fee which caused other checks to bounce and caused a chain-reaction throughout our account. We are still trying to sort it out with the even though our account is now closed. Beware of any company that starts with MWI, they are all the same company and will RIP you OFF!!!

Simple Escapes, Member Works, MWI Essentials, MWI Connections, Leisure Advantage, Homeworks. Ripoff, Unauthorized credit card charges Connecticut
Before leaving on a trip I decided to check my credit card balances. I have two cards. One was $139.95 short. A credit charge for that amount was made but not by me. I know nothing about this company at all and did not authorize this charge. I called the company at 1-877-836-6903 and spoke to a Ms. Yu who spoke terrible Oriental/English. Instead of trying to resolve this matter she proceeded to tell me about other offers such as 800.00 worth of free cupons, and free travel service. It took me a full 10 minutes of constantly interrupting her to get it across to her that I did not want nor did I authorize any charges for their services to my credit card. The horrible things is if you do nothing about this it will become an annual charge to your account. One of their subsidary companies is (CARDMEMBER PROTECTION SERVICES) to which I belong and I'll bet you a dollar to a dozen donughts that Cardmember Services Provided them with my credit card number. I will cancell this service A.S.A.P. These scum sucking swindlers and thives will stop at nothing. They stoop so low as to screw our elderly and disabled citizens out of what little money they have.

MWI Connections Aka Essentials Aka Deal Pass Aka MWI Galleria Aka MWI Memberworks Aka Simple Escapes What you can do about MWI Memberworks aka MWI Connections aka other aliases to get your money back Omaha Nebraska
I, too, was ripped off with this company's fraudulent enrollment practices, charging my credit card without my permission. Know that this company, with its many aliases, has faced, and lost, at least four class action suits brought by the Attorney General of four states in the US. The Attorney General of California is now in the process of forming a class action suit for victims to this company in California; if you are a resident, write your Attorney General now. In my situation I was only able to get my money back by eliciting the help from my credit card company, in this case, Citibank. It is a waste of time to call MWI Memberworks aka Essentials aka, etc., to attempt receiving a refund. They are gifted at avoidance maneuvers, such as hanging up on you, saying their computer system is down, keeping you on hold a long time, etc. Citibank initially just gave me a spiel about my maybe forgetting that I enrolled in the program, or that I responded to some mailed marketing brochure and didn't read the fine print. At first all they did was offer to transfer me to the Essentials program, whom they admitted to be a marketing affiliate of theirs. Eventually, I found an intelligent Citibank customer service person whom I asked to stay on the line with me while I spoke to Essentials/Memberworks to be witness to the conversation. She did this, and I requested to speak to a billing supervisor at Essentials/Memberworks, got someone who claimed to be such, told them I had a Citibank customer service on the line with me, and requested my refund, that I never enrolled, etc. The billing supervisor said I would get my refund, I asked the Citibank employee on the line if she witnessed that conversation while the Essentials person was still on the line, she said yes, and within three business days I had my refund. Citibank also, at my request, took my name and personal information from all affiliate information lists that they share and sent me a letter stating they had done so. What this is about is a privacy issue: Companies like Citibank and Sears and many others are affiliating with this marketing MWI Connections company (with its many aliases) and finding themselves in class action suits on a state-by-state basis. Sears in California, due to a past class action, had to pay millions back to customers and MWI as well, double the refund. In those states that have had class actions, this MWI company has to prove enrollment by a tape-recorded conversation with the consumer that they voluntarily enrolled. No proof, they refund double the money. In states where there has not yet been a class action, this MWI company is free to do what it wants: It's a our word against the consumer approach. They get your credit card information from a shared information list, from their affiliation agreements with credit card companies, and they bill you. Simple as that. They don't have to mail you anything or call you. They can just claim that they did. And they count on you not noticing the charge on your account. If you do notice, they try to convince you that you forgot you enrolled or some other tactic. Fact is, people in these class actions either never received anything by mail or telephone solicitation, or, if they did, the information was highly misleading sufficient enough for it to be considered a fraudulent business practice. And it is indeed a fraudulent business practice. Inevitably, with a critical mass of state-by-state class actions suits, the Federal government will be gearing up to address the control of credit card shared information lists and take measures to put businesses like MWI/Essentials out of business. Meanwhile, they can just go to the next state. If you have been victimized by this company, write your Attorney General. Get your credit card company to help you get your refund if you can.

MWI Simple Escapes - MWI Homeworks Plus - Member Works - MWI Connections Fraudulent Billing Ripoff RIPOFF Charged my checking account without authorization Omaha Nebraska
In reviewing my checking account online, I observed an unauthorized charge of $9.95 for MWI Homeworks Plus 888-681-7216. There was also an additional unauthorized charge of $9.95 for the previous date for AP9 Simpleescapes 877-836-6903 CT. I have never heard of, much less order anything from, either of these companies. In researching the companies, I learned they are subsidiaries of Member Works (www.memberworks.com). I promptly notified my bank and disputed the charges, changed my account, wrote a letter to MWI (cc to Federal Trade Commission, California Attorney General, and my bank). Phone calls to MWI will commence later today when their offices are open. DO NOT let these companies get away with this! There has already been a class-action lawsuit against MWI in Florida, where they were forced to pay $1 million.

Beginning in September 2003 MWIGalleria, MWIConnections, MWISimple Escapes & MWIHomeworks Plus each made unauthorized monthly charges to my credit card of $14.95. I sent letters by certified mail to them at inception (Sept. 2003 asking them not to make these charges & to refund all they had made. The charges continued. I then sent a letter to Chase Manhattan Bank explaining the matter and asked them not to accept anymore charges from these people. I then received a letter from the bank (Mr. Guzman) stating that I was to be reimbursed. The charges continued. I sent another letter to the bank about this same matter. I received another bank letter from a person named Holmes with the same typical assurances. The charges continued. Each bank letter I received contained a telephone number to call if I had more problems. So I tried this route. I received a foreign sounding voice and after telling them my story, they said I would be getting reimbursed. The charges still continue and no reimbursement. I have all of this correspondance if needed. Thank you, Clair Reed Clair CANTON, OhioU.S.A.

MWI Escapes ripoff Omaha Nebraska
I was charged a sum of 139.95 directly to my bank account. I had no contact with this company letting them charge me for any service, after researching the issue I called the company. I got a total run around about the charge to my account and demanded the money back. It was granted but at a great length of time. I stated that the company did not have to wait for the money to get to them even as I was unaware. So I wanted my money back quickly and the only responce was to mail a letter to a specific address. Then I asked to talk to a supervisor or manager and the person simply states the address over and over without letting me speak to anyone else. I was treated very poorly by more than one person at this company. The people were Janet op#TP559 and Angela op#9790. What a ripoff scam especially during the christmas holiday.I bet this happens to many people un-noticed and never caught.this company needs to be shut down.

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.

Omaha Nebraska and Connecticut *EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back into your bank account!
I finally got around to investigating a mysterious $15.95 charge appearing every month on my Visa and found it's been going on for 13 months!!! When I called the 800#, I told them about these charges and that I had no idea who they were, what they were selling, or why the charges were appearing on my Visa. I was told by Bon #14697 that I received this free trial membership when I purchased a product via an infomercial. He said he could cancel the membership and refund the last payment. I then said, Did you hear me? I said these charges have been appearing since Oct.'03, and you're offering me $15.95? He then transferred me to a supervisor. Once again, I insisted I had never signed up for their services, had never received anything regarding their services, and would never have been interested if I had. She responded that because I did not cancel the membership after the 30-day trial period, the charges were valid. I asked how I could possibly have cancelled something I never knew I had, and reminded her that I had NEVER received anything from them. She explained that the package is sent out within 30 days of the infomercial purchase but that it could have gotten lost in the mail. I challenged her as to how I would have to have ESP to know I needed to cancel something I never got; she then started yelling (speaking over me) that according to the terms and conditions of the membership I never received, that I was still completely liable for payment. I told her that was illegal and that she would be hearing from my lawyer. She hurriedly gave her name, Sue #15382, and said that due to the special circumstances of my account she was authorized to offer me a 2-month refund. I told her she'd be hearing from my laywer. I have done a web search and cannot find this company or its address, other than my Visa statement which indicates it's somewhere in Connecticut. Another complaint website shows one of its company addresses (MWI COnnections) as being in Omaha, NebraskaAlso, the name for this company on your website of previously identified offenders is spelled incorrectly -- you have it is MWI Homeswork, and it should be Homeworks.

MWI Galleria, MWI Simple Escapes ripoff Connecticut
Today went to pay credit card online and noticed a new charge, MWI Simple Escapes. Knowing for fact I'd not made any new charges within last month, I did a google search on this company and found out about their rip-off practices. Until today, I had not heard of these people..never signed up for any memberships, never would authorize such a charge. I decided to examine my cards history of transactions and seen another charge for the same amount as the MWI Simple Escapes ($139.95) but for a place called MWI Galleria. Again back to google and again found out rip-off and by same people seemingly! So, twice unauthorized charges of $139.95. Am sure at the time the Galleria charge was posted I ignored it because of a local place that is frequented by my husband with like sounding name and just ignored the MWI part. I've disputed both charges with my credit card company and waiting now to see what will come of it all. Sheree Mount Joy, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

MWI Simple Escapes, MWI Homeswork ripoff business from hell Internet Internet
I too am another fallen victim of MWI. I had logged onto their site about two months. Simples Escapes and Homeswork were both offering $25 gift certificates to K-Mart and Lowe's for only a $1 charge each and you could cancel the membership within 30 days. I was experiencing an economic hardship and thought I had nothing to loose. Boy was I wrong! I tried for two weeks prior to the thirty days to cancel the membership to no avail. Simple Escapes and Homeswork had both charged my account $139.95 each. I called the companies in an outrage and although they refunded my monies,it created a snowball effect of overdrawn transactions on my account. I now owe the bank some money for overdrafts and MWI refuses to refund any of my fees. It then occurred to me to check for a Simple Escapes website and to my amazement I find that others are also being ripped off. Word of caution: please be careful what attracts your eye on the internet (hint-hint: $25 gift certificates)! Maria Lancaster, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

MWI SIMPLE ESCAPES & MWI GALLARIA ripoff consumer fraud ripoff Omaha Nebraska
MWI seems to have several businesses going, one is MWI GALLALIA who nailed me in the amount of $139.95 last month! When I called for a full refund for charges I did not authorize, I was told it would take two (2) billing cycles to receive my money back. Now this month, I have been charged again for the same amount, $139.95 under the name of MWI SIMPLE ESCAPES with a number of 877/836-6903, which I am about to call and demand my money back. I will also have to dispute this with my credit card company. SOMEONE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING TO STOP THESE PEOPLE....NOW!!! Gail Tustin, California

MWI Connections ripoff nationwide
Morning, I checked my credit card balance this morning and found something a little strange on it. A company called MWI connections was charging me for $149.00, I had heard of this company because of them billing me in the past, again for a service I did not authorize, for something and then me getting the money refunded to my card. I have all ready contacted my credit card company on this matter and I will have them do some research for me into this as well. Specifically into any other charges that I might have missed from this company. Thank you and good day Sgt James USMC James Johnstown, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

MWI Connections ripoff Internet
While going over my on line banking checking account I noticed a debit that I did not reconize. MWI Connections, I'd never heard of them so I called the 888 number on the statement. Low and behold it was dealpass.com. Well I had never signed up for this and neither had my husband. I do not know how the got my checking account number? I want to find out how it happened so I can file something on them, invasion of accounts? I had the option to cancel the account and so I did. A recorded message said if I had been billed I would receive a refund in 2 to 3 weeks. I will patiently wait, if I do not receive the refund I will file another report. If anyone can help me please do, I can not afford this as we are on a limited income. Help Mary Mount Pleasant, MichiganU.S.A.
