I noticed a charge for $19.95 on my credit card from this company I had never heard of. It occurred while I was traveling in India.

I called and they first tried to tell me about their company and then they kept asking for personal information so as to identify me with a charge. I would not give them the information and called American Express instead. They removed the charge from my bill.

I don't know what would have happened if I had given Intelius the information they asked for. It could be a coincidence, but all the people I spoke with were Indian, too.

If you feel any credit card charges are inaccurate, contact your credit card company to file a chargeback. Also, they should be able to block any future charges from that specific vendor.

They did exactly the same thing to me. When I called them they tried to tell me they had no account for me so they couldn't reverse the charges. I contacted the bank (Wells Fargo) and they stopped it temporarily. But a few months ago the charges started appearing again as a "recurring debit," which I never authorized. And the charges weren't even on a month to month schedule. They were spaced anywhere from 10 days to 25 days apart, all under a "recurring debit." Hopefully WF put a stop to it this time. If not, this may be class action material.
