I am so pissed! I check my acct. this morning and I have an unauthorized activity on my acct. from a company called Valuemax.....shown as "ap9* valuemax-v" on my acct. After a long morning of being on the phone I realized that this was taken out of my acct. because I did a reverse phone # look up on Intelius website aaaaand paid to do so.
I clicked on a little box at some point during check out that said something like "Yes, I agree to have an email sent to the email address provided for information on how to save $10"....or something like that. I'm sure somewhere in the fine print it told me that by clicking this decieving little box that I am authorizing some company , that I've never heard of, to charge my account a monthy membership fee of $19.95 for sevices that are not specified and that I (like many of us) do NOT NEED!All because I did a People Search...omg! Don't you think if they wanted you to come back and use their website again that wouldn't try to rob you!
The saddest part of this is that it is legal to be decieving like this in order to steal money from innocent and hard working people! I plan on going as far as I can go with this. It's not even the fact that they STOLE money out of my account that *** me off it's that they are continuing to do so day after day and nobody is doing anything about it! When I spoke with the man on the phone from Intelius I told him he should be ashamed of cashing his check every week! That is our money people!!!! Our HARD earned money! They know what they are doing and they are getting rich from stealing from us. I'll be back to add more as I get more information on what we can do to stop these thieves from getting rich off of our money.
