SHOPPINGESSENTIALS - Privacy Matters 123 - Saving Smart -Shoppers Discount ripoff All The Same Company! Fraud from Privacy Matters 123 leading to credit card fraud from other NON authorized charges from all the same company but different names! Internet

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I signed up for Privacy Matters 123 to get my Credit Report and Score for a trial membership for ONLY $1.00. I have called and cancelled my account now 5 times.

I noticed on my credit card that I was charged $10.00 from Shoppers Discount. I didn't know who they were, so, I called them up and asked them to put my money back on my card, because I didn't sign up for them and I want my acount CANCELLED!A few days later they returnd my $10.00.

A week later I noticed that I was charged $1.00 from Saving Smart. I called and also told them that I didn't sign up for them and I want my money back. A few days later they returned my $1.00.

Now all of a sudden, when I think everything is good now, I pulled up my credit card activity and I was charged $39.90 from Shopping Essentials. I called them up and told tem that I did not sign up for them and that i want my $39.00 back...

The man on the phone put me on hold because he could not find my account. When he came back he said that he has located it. I told him that I want my money back and for my account to be cancelled. he said that it will be posted back on my account by the next business day. We will see tomorrow! I told him that I don't understand this, and by chance asked him to see if there are any more active accounts under my credit cards...I'll have you know he pulled up 5 more accounts...I had him cancel ALL of them.

I asked him if his company was connected to Privacy Matters 123 and to my suprise he said YES! I could NOT figure out where all of these companies keep getting my credit card info to charge me from, and there you go! I signed up for a trial membership for the $1.00. They were all one company!!!
