Passporttofun ripping off senior citizen!

This company has been charging my elderly mother's credit card since May of 2010 until April of 2013 for a total of $547.45. She did not authorized this membership. It was somehow connected to another purchase she made, but they couldn't tell me which one. They did tell me her membership, which she never purchased, was cancelled in April of 2013. She has never spoken to them. She has not received statements or membership information from this company. When I called and explained that she never purchased this membership and that she is elderly, I was told that due to their policies they won't refund any amounts greater than a one month fee.

Passporttofun is a scam

passporttofun has been billing my credit card for an unauthorized service for 12 solid months. It is attached to Kohl's and Vista Print and other major companies that I will never do business with again. Sorry Kohl's, you lost a good customer because you let your company be associated with a scam and I can't trust you to process any more purchases by me through my credit card. I can't trust your company anymore if you are associated with this scamming company. When I googled passporttofun a huge list of fraud disputes came up with all kinds of claims of scams and a listing of well known name companies on passpottofuns website.

Paying for unordered memberships

I am scared to order anything online now. That should make merchants online concerned. After all, there are those companies who hitch a ride on your bank for months unless you catch them. They do it when you order something, they claim you authorized them to deduct so much per month.They count on you NOT checking your bank account activity often! Be vigilant with your checking account. Check at least weekly. It is usually some company like PSport to fun or one of their other names that soak you for extra cash each month. Be very careful when ordering online.

I just got another phone call from someone offering me a $500 gift card from Walmart. The catch?

you have to sign up for either Buyers Advantage or Privacy Guard. They had my debit card numbers and insisted that I had given them to them prior, else how would they have them. (I did not) They insisted that I had agreed to a membership and would not take No for an answer. I was finally given a phone number so I could get a refund for the money they had ALREADY TAKEN from my checking account!!!

They just called me again telling me that I had agreed to the membership!! I told them I don't want their free gift card, their free gas card or any thing else they had. "But you signed up for it." is what they said. I hung up.

When they call you, HANG UP. They use people with a foreign accent. Indian?

African? I don't know and I don't care.

Yes this is something they do after holding you hostage on the phone for ever. Offer after Offer while they wear you down waiting for your order confirmation.

Just say no and listen carefully to all prompts to get them correctly.

After any orders, watch your mail for unusual junk mail packages which may be membership pkgs shipped within days of your date to cancel this "trial" membership you got stuck with. Be Smart, Be Safe!

WTF-I'm paying for stuff I never bought

Somehow I'm recieving notices from my bank about checks I never wrote for stuff I never agreed to pay for. I wasn't aware that by using this site I'd have this kind of problem. It was never stated in the contract that I'd have to pay any kind of monthly fee so whats the deal? I 'm recieving bills for very minimal amounts but from several related sites like Dealmax,Passporttofun,Todaysescapes, and the worst part is I keep getting charged *** overdraft fees. Those fees are killing me cause don't have much money in the bank and alot less out of it.

I am also pissed

I also am a victim, I never signed up. Charged my account 29.95 plus 20.00 overdraft. Said they would return money. And overdraft we will see. This company and another called dealmax also charged the same. Nice when your on a fixed income. I did order something off of internet but never this. NICE. I called in the am first off they where nice like this has happened all the time. I can not tell u too much about these companies because I do not even know what thay are. Now I need to call the bank and explain.

Took money from my bank account without any authorization

Beware of "AP9 Passport To Fun" I've never heard of the company or their website until today when I was going over my bank statement and found an unauthorized charge from this company!! I waited on hold at their "customer service" toll free number for twenty some odd minutes, when a representative finally came on, she asked for my name and telephone number to "look up my account" she found no information. She then transferred to someone else that stated, "give me your credit card number and I'll help you." I refused. Hopefully, my bank will be able to remedy this in the morning.

I used to work in credit card claims department. Some advice I can give to help STOP things like this...

1. ANY check from your bank/credit card company/ etc. unless you KNOW you are expecting a refund or bonus for what ever reason, DO NOT CASH IT!!!! if you bother to read the fine print it CLEARLY states that upon cashing this check you are authorizing them to sign you up for something and charge it to your card.

2. read the fine print on ANYTHING that claims to be free. I mean serioulsy...Those T&C are there stating everything clearly and legally...but because MOST people just skip through it and "claim" to of read it, they act suprised later that they find unknown charges. if anything is free then you would never need to give payment options.

Sadly these 2 bits of advice happened about 98% of my incoming calls...the other 2%....restruants of SOME waitors adding a tip in because you didn't write anything in the tip line....people...if you leave a cash tip write in the line "no tip" leaves no room for error so no one can add in their own tip....for those who don't tip...I won't go there...

The GRANT RESEARCH GUIDE or GRANT RESOURCE CENTER took money from my bank account without my authorization. I have called them on three ocassions to resolve this situationand and the only thing I get is a voice mail.

They were able to access my account from a $2.95 cents that I paid with my credit card for shipping and handling for a free CD.

They then used that info. to charge my account with an additional $58.61 I will follow thru with an investigation with the help on my banking institution.

Passpottofun

I too am suffering a similar experience with the same company stealing from my bank account. I have done some research on the net and they seem to be tied-in with an internet printing company called Vista Print and if you order from Vista Print you get phoney charges from Passport to Fun and another company called Privacy Matters. This is both theft and fraud and anybody experiencing this, (or anything like it), should report it IN WRITING to your bank, credit card company, the county sheriff and your state Attorney General. These parasites must be stopped. By the way, Vista Prints quality is dreadful. Their cards are so bad as to be almost unusable.

Passport to Fun - ripoff by stealth

I just found out one of my credit cards has been charged $18.95 a month for the past 18 months by an outfit called Passport to Fun ... I called their 800 number on my bill and ordered them to stop immediately. Then searched the web about them and found this site. I too will be filing a complaint with our attorney general here in Texas. These scummy criminals need to be stopped. I just wish the person who came up with the scam could be forced to do some serious jail time. We need all the money we get to pay for gas and food -- these parasites should be criminalized.

Incredible scam! Charged $19.95 on credit card, called phone number posted 877-651-**** to Cancel and request Refund.

Rep said they were unable to Refund but confirmed my "cancellation". I never "signed on" for this scam, just booked a trip from TRAVELOCITY!

Told Rep that I would be calling Attorney General's office and she was able to Refund $19.95. TRAVELOCITY'S reputation is at stake here!

I too have been ripped off by Passport to Fun and so has my husband. On two seperate accounts they made unauthorized charges of $19.95.

There were about six month of charges on my husbands card before he caught it.

There was only one on mine since I was aware of the problem he had. We traced it back to Travelocity where we had booked a flight and they gave our information to these *** So be careful if you do any business with Travelocity because most likely these charges will appear shortly afterwards.

Bank charges

My husband did not notice the charge of $14.95 on the bank statement until he was getting stuff ready for taxes. We never signed up for Ap9*passporttofun but has been charged for it starting in Aug. We never herd of this company & had no reason to sign up for it. We are calling the bank & will call this company to get money back watch out. who knows where it came from. I would like to know how they got our bank account # and from where they got it. This needs to be stopped. It is a ripp off.
