Unauthorized credit card charges by DCA
Direct Commerce Academy, DCA, advertised information on line regarding a home based business. They charged $2.97 to review their presentation. After inputting a credit card account number and authorizing the $2.97 charge to see the information - it was obvious that the information was worthless and I had no interest in pursuing it further. I shut down the site. When my credit card statement arrived the charges were $2.97, and 2 days later another $139.00 membership charge, and a week later another $39.95 monthly fee to be deducted automatically from my account. I called them on the phone and explained that I had not accessed additional information, had not signed up for the membership, and had not authorized anything except the $2.97 charge. They refused to discuss it and said I was obligated to pay. The operator was rude and threatened to hang up on me - all she did was to keep repeating that I had joined and authorized the charges, which was completely false. I contacted the credit card company and I wrote to the State Attorney General lodging an official complaint. They forwarded it to the Federal Commerce Fraud Department. My credit card company closed the account and issued a new card to me. They said they would reverse the charges and pursue an investigation of this vendor. I will no longer purchase anything on line - it has become unsafe to use credit card purchases on line.
