|3556||money worries debt management |
|Money Worries = con »||24/06/09||01/07/2009||1|
I recently tried to sort out my debt problems and was looking for a consolidation loans and went through Yes Loans. I was led to believe that I had been accepted for a loan and so paid the admin fee of £69.50. They then put me through to Money Worries and I discovered that I had no loan approved and they were offering me a debt management plan. This caught me off guard and after a rather lenghty call (which cost me over £10) I initially agreed to a debt management plan and to pay £469 per month. When I received the paperwork, I discovered that the first 2 payments totalling £938 were their set up fee and nothing would be going to my creditors and then they would also be taking 15% each month as their fee. This I thought was totally unacceptable and after reseraching other alternatives, I agreed to a plan with Payplan which is a free service. I did not send any paperwork back signed so thought that the agreement was void. I then decided to call to advise that he did not want to go ahead and ensure that no payments were taken off my debit card. I tried on several occassions and was on hold for so long that I gave up and then emailed them. I tried again and eventually spoke to an agent and she advised me that she would cancel the plan and confirmed that no payment would be taken and I just needed to be put that in writing. I did this immediately and posted on 25/06. On 26/06, they took a payment for £469 from my account which unfortunately did not have sufficient funds meaning that I am now over my overdraft limit and accruing charges and interest. I contacted them and asked why they had taken the payment and they advised that I did not give sufficient time to cancel and would now need to apply in writing for a refund which could take 28days!!! So they can take a payment from a verbal agreement but cannot refund unless you write in - totally unacceptable.
I have now been calling every day to see if my letters have been received which they have not - they seem to have a very slow admin team. I have sent another letter recorded delivery today so i know that they have received it.
I asked to speak to a senior member of staff and was told that nobody was available. I am now awaiting somebody to call me back as requested that a senior member of staff call me back by the end of today. I am not going to let this lie - and want my money refunded asap with any charges that I have incurred.
This company is unethical and illegal as far as Im concerned and pray on people in difficult situations. My dealings with money worries have only created stress and further money worries rather than the opposite that they advise.

I,like many others,it seems,had free sample health products sent to me,and payed for the delivery charge up front. A month later, two amounts of £49.91+£1.50 card charges, were taken from my bank account,and a month after that, two amounts of, £53.53 + £1.50 were taken. My bank is currently looking into this. And,again like many others,i cannot contact this company,although they are, boldly,advertising on the internet. How can these people be stopped ?

|failure to refund »||25/06/2009||01/07/2009||1|
I bought a pair of size 12 'CROCS' from CLOGGIS LTD via their website, paid by debit card. Shoes arrived, they were size 12 but way too small. I contacted the company, by email explained that they were not suitable and asked for refund. The company told me that they do not do refunds but only 'credit notes'. As the item was the maximum size they provided and there was no suitable alternative, i explained to them that a 'credit note' not only was it not legal but it was useless to me, and insisted politely that they refund my money in full. They now refuse to acknowledge my many emails on the subject and are hiding behind their illegal terma and conditions which refuse reunds. They are a very uncooperative and uncommunicative company probably run from a private house somewhere as the email address is a hotmail address. One to be avoided at all costs.

This company are not honest. DO NOT deal with them. If they can steal your money and not give a service in return they will. They took my deposit, didnt have a vehicle available and now wont return the money.

|AcaiBerry Detox rip off »||06/07/2009||01/07/2009||0|
On 7 June 2009 I fell for the "free trial" offer for Acaiberry Detox where all you have to pay is shipping and handling for a 30 day supply. I did read the fine print that the free trial was really only 15 days from the day you placed the order (I'm sure designed to screw people over) and that you had to call to cancel within that time or be charged for the product ($87.13). I received the product around 11 June 2009. Beginning on that day I began calling the Customer Service number listed to cancel. I spent a huge amount of time each day and at varying times during the day to try to cancel this order and not be charged. I was never able to reach a service representative or gain access on the automated system to cancel the order. Low and behold, on 22 June 2009, Expressberry charged my credit card for $87.13. Today, 30 June 2009, I was finally able to gain access through the automated line after over two hours of trying. I was never truly able to confirm that my order was indeed cancelled or to try to get a refund of my money since I was NEVER able to cancel within the 15 day period. I called my credit card company who informed me that this has been on ongoing problem and that I could dispute this charge. They felt, and I agree, that this company willfully and purposely makes it impossible to be able to cancel this order during the "free" trial period. What a rip-off. And to think that Oprah, her beloved Dr. Oz and Rachel Ray lend their names to the huge scam. They should all be ashamed. I feel like a complete idiot!
|rip off »||June 2009||01/07/2009||0|
Ordered a 2 week free trial offer only to paying for shipping for shipping at $3.95. It stated if you cancel within two weeks you will not be charged any additional fees. I cancelled a week after ordering the product. Thought why not try it if Oprah and Rachael Ray like it must be pretty good. I open my bank statement today and to my surprise I had been charged $88.00 for a product that I had cancelled. I want my $88.00 dollars back from a fraudulant company. Do not do business with this company if you do they will rip you off too.

this company promised to pay off all my creditors in 5yrs, they took £320 from my bank as a S/O every monty for the past two and a half years ,whenever i spoke to them they assured me that all my creditors had been paid even though i was still getting phone calls and lettersfrom them. carter and carter said that the creditors do this as they want to try and get more money from you, so as they were assuring me i didnt think anything of it , until i tried calling them , spent nearly 90 mins on hold and then cut off ,tried phoning again to find the phone lines dead then i went to pay a visit at their offices at mansion house to find that they had just vanished.i am just devastated to find out they only paid a few of my creditors small amounts andpocketed the rest.has anyone else had this problem?? have reported to police , trading standards and watchdog.

|Deposit Refund »||22 April 2009||01/07/2009||3|
I paid a deposit on an engine I bought from Engine Warehouse. The old engine was returned on 22 April. Since then I have currently telephoned 27 times to ask to get my refund. Each time I am given excuses or they hang up. I have been told there is only one person who can do refunds - he is either ill, gone to hospital, on holiday, just popped out, only works Thursdays or agrees to refund the next day; which of course has not happened. They have many times put me through to a line which no-one answers. When you ask for someone's name they give you the name but when you ring back and ask for that person the person who answers does not know anyone of that name. I believe they have no intention of refunding my money. I went to my local police station and they said it was Internet Fraud and they could take up the case if I wanted. The policeman said he thought they had been on Watchdog.

|Triple Up Herbal Rip Off »||6-01 to on going||01/07/2009||1|
Trial sample ordered 6/1/09, received 6-/12, & cancelled by phone the same day because it was opened and pill bottle tampered with. TripleupHerbal's (QualityHealth's) customer service vowed to email instructions for returning within 24-48 hours and credit my account $3.95. A second phone call with the same results made 6-15-09. Instructions still did not come. Called Bank of America 6/17/09 to inform them of this & asked the charges be removed. Told I needed to wait 30 days. I expressed concern about Tripleuherbal proceeding with charging my account $79.95 plus foreign transaction fees if Bank of America did not put a stop to it. Told I would have to cancel directly with Tripleuherbal. Catch 22: company is unreachable.
Called & emailed numerous times since then. All calls either not answered, busy or right into ‘Hold mode', with my staying on the line for over 20 minutes each time before giving up. "Contact Us" on the website erases the fields as soon as I press "Submit Query".
Which brings me to another complaint. There are thousands of these scams posted on internet. The credit card companies MUST be well aware of who these scammers are, & continue to put their customers through stressful and tedious process of dispute.
The only correspondence received from this company was an email dated 6-21-09 (10 days after I cancelled by phone), stating, "As you have not emailed us that you would like to return us the unused portion of the pills at the end of 15 days, we thank you for the acceptance of our product and we have now charged your order VRZ-303-0134407641 $79.95 for the product received." I immediately replied, and again, have not had any response.
