Intelius - Sneaky Ripoff!! Should NOT be in business!
I was looking over my bank statement and noticed a charge of $49.95 from INT'US Search SE followed by a number.I called the number and had to speak to some Indian I could barely understand told me back in August I had did a search for somebody.
While that is true, I did search for an old friend's number, I ONLY agreed to the one time 99 cent charge to obtain this number. Which by the way, after I paid the 99 cents, they didnt provide a number anyway. I didnt care because it was only 99 cents. The woman told me they had charged me TWICE for $49.95 for their "quarterly fee!" She stated they'd be canceling my "membership".
I NEVER authorized these charges and NEVER even agreed to sign up for their *** service! There was no warning I'd be signing up for their service or membership, it was no where in the fine print and I never received any confirmation that I had supposedly signed up! I looked at my bank statement again going back to August and indeed there was another $49.95 charge and also a $25 charge from them for who know's what. So in total they ripped me off $124.90!
I cant believe how many complaints I have found from folks in the same situation, and worse yet, I cant believe these people are still in business!!!I will be contacting my bank first thing tomorrow to dispute these charges!
Monetary Loss: $125.
