This company requires $200 out of your Bank Account with the promise of Credit Card Approval, Master Card or Visa. They send you a Telmark Consumer Services Platinum Plus... Card, and a Catalog. The promise is, you will have 5 opportunities to aquire a Master Card or Visa through Banks they have contacts with.

If you don't receive a card after up to 5 tries, then they will refund your $200. I wrote to them within 3 months, I have only received 1 offer. They said, they will write the banks again. Another 2 months went by and I only received 1 offer. I tried to call Telmark again using the same number I spoke with a woman representative with, and no one picked up. Within 3 months, I have called at least 20 times, and no answer.

I wrote Telmark last month asking for a refund and cancellation. And I have received nothing for my trouble. No Letters...No Phone Call. Just a few minutes ago I tried to call again, but the phone just keeps ringing till your cut off.

Their Member Service Phone Number doesn't pick up! They don't answer their mail.

Are they still in Business? After 3 months of them taking my money they were.

Now after reading other peoples complaints, I finally admitted to myself that Telmark has no intention of favoring a refund. Cancellation means only if they try to take out from my Bank Account again. But that won't get me my $200 back.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Too late--you lost the stall game

AUTHOR: TheFraudChick@aol.com - ()


Unfortunately you lost the stall game. It is typical for these types of schemers to put the victim off by promising a refund. The fraudsters know that they can run out the "clock" on your bank's fraud complaint period. It's now too late for you to file a fraud complaint at your bank, although it never hurts to try.

Report these fraudsters to the Attorney General's office and the Federal Trade Commission at https://rn.ftc.gov/dod/wsolcq$.startup?Z_ORG_CODE=PU01.

You can take them to small claims court and you will win. Request a garnishment on their account, which you can get from your bank. Ask your bank for the account number they transferred the funds to.

If it brings you any comfort, your posting on the Rip-Off Report will probably save some people from the same ordeal--thanks.
