Hi my name is Trevor Edmondson. On dec.23 I spoke with tammy hawkins to cancell my credit card. Her employee # is 46404 After alot of pressure selling from her i agreed to to view their catalogs and services for FREE. She gave me until Feb. 24 2006 to cancell in writing. She said to cancell serivce I would need to type a letter that i would want to cancell. She also explained to me that if i have my letter post marked before the 24 of feb. that my cancellation would be valid. I held up my end and cancelled before the time givin. She informed me that i would cancell before the 24 NO CHARGES would go against me. NO money out of my pocket what so ever. She then gaurenteed me of this. So after I cancelled my cards I though everything went ok. I even recieved 2 cancellation letters from the company. Yet on March 3 2006 there was 3 debits from my checking account. These debits were NEVER authorized by me. In the federal trade commison website, it states that in order for a business to debit a account the person would have to give oral authoriztion or written. This I did not do. It also states that I would be informed of the amounts takin and how many withdrawls. Again i was never informed of any transactions. They took a unauthorized amount of 299.00 from my checking account.

On friday march 3rd I tried to contact their company about the charges, I waited on hold for 15 min. I had to return to work and was unable to complete the call. Again i was charged by them after I had confirmation from the supervisor Tammy that I would have ZERO charges to my account. This was incorrect as i have been charged 299 dollars. Again I had an agreement that I would not be charged and i was, 1 week after i had cancelled my service.

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


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 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!


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.


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.

Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck Let us know how you do!
