Shoppers Advantage - TLG Shopper/Great Fun, unauthorized charges,deception
OMG The complaints are innumerable against these scammers and crooks and apparently for YEARS this has been going on as I find AFTER I myself was scammed into "trying out" an "offer via Wyndham Rewards.Recently this past November (2010) during a hotel stay at Super 8 using my Wyndham Rewards card, I called customer service of an issue regarding another matter when after that resolve was asked if I would be interested in a "trial offer" from their affiliates After brief consideration, I opted for the $1.00 30-day trial NOT a "membership" as they deceptively put me on during the call.
Was told that this "trial" wouldn't start UNTIL I got the materials in the mail within 3 weeks but I caught them in a LIE as I looked at the "policy" of the "Welcome To Great Fun" paper with a member card attached !!! where I only had 2 WEEKS to CANCEL if need be. If I HAD waited up to the 30 days AFTER I received this so-called discount package, that would've put me well over the cancellation time for them to only charge me and I wouldn't have no case BUT NO...the thing was that the so-called "trial" STARTED while I was on the phone with Wyndham which they made a "membership" WITHOUT MY PERMISSION !! After some pondering, I called to CANCEL everything a couple of days later and even still was being sold the "the program" and was treated as if I wasn't in my right mind to want to cancel so early.
I firmly requested cancellation along with a conf.# and name all under " Great Fun" mind you. A month later after that, I check my charge account to find that a "TLG Shopper" with phone # charged me $16.99 that the Great Fun rep.
told me over the phone IF I DIDN'T CANCEL but I DID and I'm like, "who the *** is TLG SHOPPER what the *** is this charge?!?" But as a careless oversight on my part, I doubled back into my charge account and surely there was "TLG Shopper" NEXT TO "Great Fun" who debited $1.00 ALSO who they gave my info to WITHOUT MY PERMISSION !!!Of course, I DEMANDED a REFUND of which I'm awaiting right now...the nerve...this is TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS...there should be a class action suit against this "corporation" and others like them !!
I consider myself to be pretty good at handling my affairs being a conscientious consumer...but now, I'm EXTRA vigilante to recheck EVERYTHING...thanks for reading...BEWARE and AWARE !!
