WTF???

I received a charge and an email on the same day. When I called, I was told I must have checked a box at checkout....but I do not and have not ordered any related products from reputable sellers. THEY SAY THEY WILL REFUND MY $$, but I need to call back to ensure that all of my information is deleted. This should be a crime, and I have no idea how they got my information. Any input would be helpful. I see many scam complaints online. If I need to cancel my card, I will contact my state's attorney general. If anyone has any further information, it would be helpful to post it here.

These guys hit us too - they say "there isnt a supervisor here so we cant refund your card but we can send you a check" than we asked how they rcd authorization to charge our card, they said it just comes through the computer and they have no idea. Total BS.

They charge under different names. Just cancel your card and dispute the charge w the credit card company

WellnessWatchersMD Fraudulent Charge on Credit Card

I have never heard of this company and know that I never subscribed. Yet, they somehow knew my home address, cell phone number, email address and credit card number. They explained that I probably signed up for their subscription when I purchased some sort of health related item like gym equipment, vitamins, etc. I told them I have not purchased any of those items. Without further explanation and without me even asking for it, they said they would cancel my account but that the charge on my card wouldn't be credited for 5-7 days. I called my credit card company and reported the fraudulent use of my credit card by this company. My credit card company is refuting the charges for me and is reassigning me a new account number. I see through my web searches that this company has been scamming people since 2008. I'm surprised no one has shut them down yet.

Wellness watchers md

There was a strange charge on my credit card that I noticed and watched as it went through pending status and charged to my card. At that time I contacted my credit card,they told me to contact this phone number 888-332-**** in which I did call. This phone# said it was House Leader Md. So after I talked to someone who was hesitent to give me any information including her own name, she said she would cancel my subscription. Obviously I never joined anything but she told me A day and time it was done online, I was asleep in an Orlando, Fl. hotel room without internet access. Anyway they say they will refund a credit to the card but she basically accused me of lying and tried to say I let someone use my card. So after a moment of trying to understand what was going on I asked her the web address she said houseleadermd.com, it did not exsist. While she was still on the phone I told her the web add. did not work. She then said "oh try wellnesswatchersmd.com"! REALLY!!!! Thats when I knew this was fraud. You dont know what company you are working for? I then read all the bad review and complaints on the web. So I cancelled all my cards and requested all new ones and new account #s. How does this happen? Do not trust them they charge monthly weekly daily or whatever they can get before you realize it. The only way to stop them is to let everyone else know. What a nightmare! Im so lucky they only got me for $20.00 and some massive headaches, some people online lost anything from $20.00 to $200.00 and in one case I read $500.00! STOP THEM BY LETTING EVERYONE KNOW! They use many different names!

Same thing happened to me, but...

Strangely enough, there are now 1000s of complains about wellnesswatchersmd.com (also now online as fatwatchers.com). I too had wished, that I had read the complaints, before I ordered something from another company. I also order the sexy pout lip product and was charged by ionlineorder.com. What surprised me though is, that the ionline company offered very specific instructions on how to return the lip product. I followed them and received a refund back from them for the entire amount. I only lost $8.42 for UPS return package.Wellnesswatchersmd.com and Fatwatchers.com are different from ionline.com and are fraudulent scammers, that use your credit card and personal info to gain access to your credit line without your permission. They did that to me and the only way I was able to stop them was by cancelling the credit card itself. I also reported them for felony theft, identity theft and fraudulent business practices to the FCC, Police and FBI. They are checking into them. I've learned that their ficticious Dr. Friesen doesn't exist and that the address is a telemarketing office. I am sure we haven't heard to end of those criminals yet. Sorry to hear that this happened to you too.

In April 2009, I ordered a tooth whitening product online that was offerred with a $50 rebate for trying Wellness Watchers MD. I got the product, tried the website, cancelled before the free trail was up and applied for my rebate.

That was FIVE MONTHS ago. I have called the company no less than 5-6 times. Every time they have an excuse or now answers. Supposedly my check "got lost in the mail"...(yeah and your dog ate your homework too)...so they had to stop payment ont he check and wait FOUR WEEKS TO ISSUE A NEW CHECK-WHICH OF COURSE NEVER CAME!...three calls later and now they want another 24-48 hours to check on the status.

These *** artists think that I'm just going to give up but I'm not.

I'm filing a complaint with the state attorney general and the Internet Crime Complaint Center which is run by the FBI. They would be smarter just to pay me the $50 but they are a fraud so they won't.
