MWI Connections ripoff - unauthorized charges Omaha Nebraska
Started seeing a charge of $12.95 on my credit card statement for July 2004. I had recently purchased a Thane Perfect Air cleaner, and assumed the charge was from them. When I saw the same charge on my Aug, Sept, and Oct statement, I researched on the internet and realized the scam. I cannot say for sure, but I believe by responding to an infomercial and ordering the air cleaners, they may have given my name and information to MWI Connections. =NOTE: After reading complaints on RIP-OFF website, I beleive the culprit may be Focus Factor. Another person reported her suspicions regarding Focus Factor.
I am trying to remember if there was some 30 day trial period on some product that they pushed on me. I am very adamant that I only want the product and nothing else. I never give authorization for anything other than the product and a shipping mode. There always seems to be some hidden service when you order a product via telephone, but it\'s funny that when you receive the item you ordered, there is never any documentation regarding the service they have packaged with the product. I will be sending out the letter to MWI, as well as contacting my credit card company. I feel lucky that I did not get the $99.00 charges, but any amount charged to my credit card without my consent should be considered a crime. I cannot understand why ... If they have settled lawsuits in 4 states, that they can continue to charge credit cards. Why hasn\'t someone shut them down? This is totally beyond my comprehension that they have actually been charged and taken to court, yet they continue to do business - or scamming, is more like it!
I became very ill in the month of August and September. I was out of work for around 5 weeks, without pay. I am struggling to make my monthly payments, although I have filed for the protection service that I have paid for 4 years, to kick in and pay my payments for me! Anyway, just the extra charges of $12.95 each month since July has contributed to my going over the credit limit. I am now getting charged $29.00 fee for being $3.58 over my limit. I feel I should file another complaint toward Bank Of America for their recent actions. I just may do that - so look out!
