I have been billed from TLG Shoppers Advantage. They have been billing me for a long time now. I have never heard of TLG nor have I EVER agreed to do anything with these people.

Now, I keep getting bills on my bank statements. And what do I get in return from TLG? Nothing. I have never ONCE received anything from them. And- I have called MANY times to get it to end. Has it? NO.

This seems very out exchange. Its is known all over the world that if you get something from someone or a company you get an exchange of some kind. Weather it be money or a product. I have not received a thing from this company. And I am NOT happy.

My mother in law has been paying these scammers for over 12 years 149.99 for maybe every month. I called and they ignore you when you call them criminals. Something has to be done about these people!

I was looking more carefully at my online banking, and suddenly noticed a charge that I had previously noticed, but ignored. With online banking, so many entries are abbreviated and you don't think much about it, until one day you finally notice there is an 800-number attached. I called the number and cancelled, and was given a confirmation number. Naturally, she tried to get me to keep it for whatever reason, but I firmly said "just cancel!" When I looked back through my bank records, I have been paying $16.99 per month for 7 months! I would never have agreed to something like that - no way! How on earth do these things happen? Then I looked through my emails and found the welcome email to Shoppers Advantage, but find no mention of monthly charges. I'll check back in next month to share whether or not it got permanently cancelled.

I am replying to my own message from 3 minutes ago. I looked at the email again, and at the bottom, after lots of verbiage, they indicate that after the first month when you pay only $1.00, you will be billed $16.99 per month. Unfortunately, most of us usually only lightly scan those agreements, easily missing that critical informtion. I probably thought I was getting the information I wanted for $1.00. I likely wanted information right away on a particular product. I guess it's a lesson learned!

:(Somehow I got sucked into the same scam. I too had buyer's remorse and phoned back to cancel,I thought that was it....but lo and behold on my credit card statement the charges were there for 16 months ($300.00+). When I did this I was in Yuma and now home in Canada. Can't use the 1-800# here. Has someone checked with a lawyer? I have a lawyer cousin in Vancouver, BC, I will give her a call and see what can be done...maybe a letter from her would help. I will post what I find out. Anyway BUYER BEWARE...if it looks too good then it probably isn't real. :cry

This happened to me today and I immediately contacted my back. They refunded my money within minutes but had to cancel my debit card. If you haven't done so yet contact your bank and let them know that fraudulent activity from this company and they should refund u all the money TLG has taken from u if its a good and decent bank. Good luck!

I got a double charge from them leading to my card being declined at a store which is embarassing to the least I called my account holder and reported my account compromised and now no more charges!!

TLG Shopper and TLG Great Fun stole 19.99 each from my elderly mothers account. After 6 different phone numbers, she finally got some one to say they would give her a refund for one of the charges. We will see. Everyone needs to file a complaint with the Attorney Generals Office. Give them this info: TLG Shoppers (Trilegiant Corp), 6 High Ridge Park, Stamford CT 06905, service@shoppersadvantage.com, 800-526-4848. Website is shoppersadvantage.com. Good luck.

I feel used and abused, this is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me. They got over $300.00 from me, however, I am Canadian, so I am trying to get help here.

There number is 1-800-222-0304. Found out the owner's name is Mike Rappapport. They are a complete rip off. Do not be surprised that when you call, they say "it's not us" and you get sent to voicemail. Keep calling back!!

greatfun has taken out of my elderly mothers checking account $19.99 month for Jan. Luckily we found it this early I called greatfun and they are supposed to credit the account I called the bank to stop any futher charges and they said also a shoppers advantage had taken 19.99 out in Feb. Greatfun said my mother called them which I do not believe. scam scam scam scam..When I find out how this happened the store or stores will be getting nothing but bad comments from me. This is ridicuous and upsetting to my mother. She has been promised a credit of all of the amounts taken. So we will see. Now she is getting a new debit card and the bank is helping her do an appeal of the charges if these credits do not come about. They also told me she had a $40.00 gift card on the way. Big deal..We just want this to stop.
