UOL NETZERO INTERNET unathorized credit card charges $9.95 NEW YORK New York

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

My American Express card was charged $9.95 by NetZero three times. I have never signed up with Net Zero nor used any of their services. I have disputed the charges with my credit card company.

Their charges appear around the 25th of the month, which is close to the billing date, and so their charge often occurs on the NEXT month's paper bill, meaning you don't even see the charge until over 30 days have passed. This seems like a slimy way for them to slip under your radar, since there is a 60 day time limit for reporting fraudulent charges -- by putting in their charge around the 25th, their charge is already over 30 days old before it appears on your monthly bill! Then, if you wait 1-2 weeks to open the bill, you're already almost out of time!

Beware these thieves. I hope they are investigated by law enforcement soon.

Maybe it's because I've ordered flowers

AUTHOR: Val a - (U.S.A.)

It looks like NetZero's parent company, UOL, also owns the flower delivery website

I've ordered flowers from FTD several times. I now wonder whether NetZero/UOL got my credit card number through those flower orders. I don't know whether that's the case, but I am suspicious. I did use the same credit card for the flowers as the one that's getting hit by fake NetZero charges now.

The unfortunate thing is that I was very happy with FTD's flowers and customer service. However, since their parent company is ripping me off and committing credit card fraud, I am not planning to use them ever again.
