Consumer First ripoff Tampa Florida
I was sent a Acceptance Certificate from them saying that I had guaranteed approval for a Consumer First Platinum Card with a credit line of &5,000. They wanted $45.00 for standard processing and delivery or $49.00 for Rush. This is a scam. I believe that they have been going by other names so recognize the scam and not the company name. Beware!!! Audra Birmingham, Alabama

Consumer First ripoff Tampa Florida
A few days ago I received an acceptance certificate stating that I was approved for a $5,000 credit limit. I read over the letter and was curious why there wasn't an 800 number or any fine print on the back. I had my husband read the letter and he said that it had to be a scam because the letter stated that You may use your platinum card immediately upon receipt for all purchases FROM CREDIT PROVIDER. So I went to this site and found that it really was a scam. I hope those people burn!:( Eval Tucson, Arizona

Contacted by regular mail with credit card offer -- supposedly pre-approved for 5,000 dollars. I did not send any fee ($45.00) which was requested because I was suspect of a fraudulent scheme. I find this website on the internet and decided to complete this report. I hope I have been helpful to potential and past victims. Thank you. Alphonso Harrisburg, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

Consumer First Rip-off
I am an 18 year old trying to get a credit card. I have been rejected from many credit card companys. One day I opened my mail and found a letter saying that i am already approved for a platium credit card w/$5,000 credit limit and 0%APR with a one time only $49 membership fee. I was so exited I finally was approved!!! Then as I started to think about it why would some one give an 18 year old kid a $5,000 credit limit and a 0%APR When i have no past credit history. So I got suspiciuos and looked for the company on the internet. Then I found this ripoff page and I have a friend who works for a news station and we are going to expose this company for the con artist that they really are! Jonathan Bellaire, TexasU.S.A.

I received a form telling me I was pre-approved for a Platinum Credit Card with a credit limit of $5000.00, all I need do is sign the form and send in $45.00 or $49.00 for Rush delivery. It seems funny there was no phone to contact them by or a website where they could be reached. I'm alittle smarter than that, I put it thru my shreader, I hope everyone who reads this will do the same and report them also! John Akron, Ohio

I have received the same certifcate that many other's have offering the 5k @ 0% for 12 months and to be increased to PRIME PLUS or approximately 14.49% thereafter. This is not the first time that I have received this certificate. But it is the first time I have investigated it. The cetificate does NOT have a telephone number where you can contact their office and it only has a po box... many compaies do use a po box BUT there is always a TELEPHONE number to contact them for any questions or assistance... I have received the certificate from these people. There is another company that MAY/MAY NOT be connected with them. Their name is American Credit Solutions located at 4618 N. Hale, Ste 102 tampa, fl 33614 BUT there is an toll free number 800-564-2517 with operation hours of 9am-10pm mon-fri sat 10am-6pm (est time) There offer is almost the same. They offer a limit of 4k. If these card companies were/are on the up and up. then the offer is good. Many people shop from a catalog any how or even via internet. shopping by catalog can be accomidating to many. But, if these compinies are actually ripping people off buy geting them to send in $45 a pop. That is a lot of money. If 300 people responed @ $45; that equals to $13,500. I have not sent in the money they requested from me. People please be careful with YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY. pamela chicago, Illinois

BEWARE THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE ..... I got a pre-aprroval letter in the mail on 11/20/2002 stating that I get a 5,000 credit limit. But it had no phone number or adress and it did not specify if it was a visa, mastercard or what. So, I tried to look up the website on the internet and I found this. I am so grateful to have not sent the $5.oo fee because now I know it was only for catalog use. THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WROTE ABOUT THIS FRADULENT COMPANY. Lori San Diego, California

Consumer First consumer fraud ripoff Tampa Florida
This is one more report about consumer first. I received a solicitation asking me to activate a card which was already booked for me. It said that this was a guaranteed approval with a $5,000 credit limit and $45 one time fee. I was intrigued by this solicitation and found it rather strange. A quick check on the internet and this site confirmed my suspicions. Want to share some of the things to look out for in such solicitations to prevent being taken for a ride: 1. The solicitation didn't mention anywhere whether this was a visa/mastercard/amex/discover/diners club card. 2. Normally, the annual/monthly fees are credited to your new credit card. This offer asked for money order/check beforehand which was rather strange. 3. There was no website, no fine prints, no explanation of the terminology, no disclaimers - too good to be true and too unprofessional. so look for these things the next time you get a credit card solicitation.

Consumer First ripoff consumer fraud Tampa Florida
This absurd company, Consumer First, offered me a credit card to boost my credit with a 5,000 dollar limit. It even goes as far to say they are a credit provider for a platinum card. What I recieved, after three weeks, was a catalog and a card that is not a credit card as suggested. There is a 35% down-payment, and 15% shipping and handling fee for all purchases made through this catalog. I am furious now because they have my 45 dollar processing fee, and how do I know I'll even get that back with their supposed 30 day money back guarantee, if I can't even get a hold off them. Consumer First supplies no phone or fax number. Not even an e-mail address. So what happens when I send the catalog and card back and do not recieve my refund? They can easily dodge me through the mail. Also, it took nearly 3 weeks to recieve this package, so they could technically say that the 30 days were up by the time I sent it there. This company sucks. Being in my mid-twenties, I just needed to establish some credit, and have been trying to get on with a legitimate credit card company. This company has just confirmed my suspisions that the entire world is corrupt and all anyone ever wants is your Money! Cody Round Rock, Texas

Consumer First consumer fraud ripoff Tampa Florida
Consumer First had sent me a accptance lettrer inquiring that I had already been approved for a 5,000 dollar credit line. It would only cost me $49.00 for a membership fee. Well like other individuals I thought this was a good credit card and sent my money in. After some weeks had passed I was getting curious when my credit card would be arriving seeing it should have already been here. So I had recieved some information in the mail my checks were bouncing and I had insuffient fund. Which never happens but after sending my check to them. The next day I recieved another acceptance letter from the same exact company Consumer First and it read the same as the other letter. So as I thought to myself this is wierd I looked for a number to call to explain to them I had already sent my check in. Well there is no number. I decided they must have a web site so as I got on the internet to look them up I came upon a sit of their rip-off scams they pulled to others. There nothing but sloppy scams artist.

They sent me a card in the mail for a credit line of 5,000 and i had to pay $49.00 for card. Then i received a catalog, there is nothing i would order, there is nothing worth spending a 5,000 credit limit on. I didn't know you couldn't use it for anything but what is in the catalog,and i wouldn't pay 10.00 for anything in the catalog.. And has anyone that has got this catalog and card tried to order from it? and did they ever get the stuff back in the mail? please let me know if so and more about this.
