I made a legitimate membership purchase from an organization in Sweden.  Said payment was processed by SWReg Digital River.  The day after the legitimate payment posted a fraudulent payment for $1.95 posted from DRI*ValuePlus.  I missed that charge.  In Dec and Jan charges for $24.95 appeared for a so called membership in ValuePlusOnline.com processed by Digital River.  Subsequent investigation has revealed that in their sales pitch to potential customers Sempris.Com, which has several fraudulent programs under its umbrella, states that at the end of the legitimate payment process there will be an "unobtrusive link" to introduce one of their membership programs and once a customer has finished viewing the info they will arrive back at the legitimate payment page.  Meanwhile, what has happened, a person clicks through a maze of links trying to get to the legitimate payment confirmation page and in the end has managed to sign their life away in the fine print.

Sempris is a new name from about Sept 2011 (the old company name had a world of fraud complaints)  In less that six months the BBB in Minneapolis has 904 fraud complaints.  I know absolutely nothing about what ValuePlus is supposed to be.  I've received no membership info and you can't log onto their site w/o it.  In order to "recover" it you have to furnish a whole lot more personal info...not going to give them more ammunition.

I've been told that charges will be refunded.  We'll see.  It seems that to many charge backs can cost them their credit card privileges.  Though inconvenient, the only way to end the charges is to cancel the card and get a new one issued and NEVER USE SWREG DIGITAL RIVER TO PROCESS PAYMENTS.  They are complicit in this fraud because they are listed as an affiliate of Sempris.com
