I used "Intelius" to get info on a phone number and paid $10 with my credit card. Then I received an email saying I had signed up for some program and that I should call 888-840-6301 to cancel.
the other person u got
I want to thank u for your stupidity and tring to get money out of them i hope that u get caught and fined
This company is using information gained from itellus.com. they are fraudently charging $19.95 to the c.c. used at this site. DON NOT USE THIS SITE FOR ANYTHING!!!
I recuested some public records on houses on 5/11/09 and gave all my info to this company because i read on their webside that if I cancel my account whithin seven days i was not going to be charge for the service. Today is 5/15 and there is no way I could get in contact with these people to cancel my account.I'll be charge $29.99 monthly if I dont cancel.
Al B. Sure
I signed up for mycredithealth.com, and canceled. I have been reading on websites that they are connected to privacy matters, and if you sign up for mycredithealth, you are also signing up for privacy matters. I have called both numbers that are associated with privacy matters, and they have not been able to locate any information about me via credit card, phone, address, or email. I have been trying to find more information about them on the net, but so far haven't seen anything concrete. Most people are on the net complaining about them, but don't list any details such as how they were able to resolve the problem.
I was also billed 29.95 by this company after I signed up for a free credit report from mycredithealth.com. I did not authorize Privacy minders to charge anything to me. I did not sign up with them. Now they billed my account and used the phone number for mycredithealth.com as the billing number. I think these two companies are in league. I cancelled mycredithealth.com way before the trial period ended, but they said it doesn't matter, privacy minders is a separate company. I called privacy minders and supposedly they are cancelling my account and refunding my money. We'll see.
If you call dont enter any info and it will direct to a rep because they had no record of any of my information.
Now how do I stop this? Im running out of funds..
Por favor dime que compania es la qu me cargo el dinero en mi tarjeta
MY ACCOUNT WAS CHARGED $29.95 3/25/09---THIS WAS NOT AUTHORIZED DIDN'T RECEIVE CALL THE NUMBER WAS ON MY BANK INFO
They made an unauthorized transaction to my debit card $29.95 on 3/25/09 did you get a refund or did they continue to charge your account?
I NEED CANCEL THIS CHARGE $ 29.95 ON MY ACCOUNT UNAUTHORIZED FOR ME...
RETURN MY MONEY OK
I too have been charged 19.95 by both, privacymatters and pmidentity.com. This was on my sears master card. We called them and they did not remove the charges for the 19.95 each.for Febuary and charged me two pamits of 19.95 for March. We called them and they said they couldnot remove the Febuary charges. Now Ihave to wait and see if they removed Marches or not. I dont know what to do . We are old folks and dont have much income. Any ideas? I did send a email but did not get an answer.
GOOD MORNING CHARGED IN MY ACCOUNT 29.95 BUT..IS NO AUTHORIZED FOR ME...

Hey get your attorney to bust their a***s. They stole money from everyone. Get me back whenever your attorney is going to do anything about it. Donutboy8@csufresno.edu
I WAS CHARGED 29.95 x 2 FROM MY CREDICARD AND I DIDN'T EVEN ASK FOR ANYTHING BUT TO CANCEL WHATEVER IT IS THAT LIED TO ME. I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET A REPORT ON MY CC BUT THESE LYING DEVILS ARE LYING THEY ARE GIVING OUT FALSE ADVERTISEMENT AND IF THESE GUYS DO NOT STOP I WILL GO AFTER THEM WITH LEGAL ACTIONS

I also was charged a $29.95 fee from my checking accountwith nothing to show for it. SomethingI did not order. Also continuely charge a $1.00 fee.
I finally got through at the 8888406301 number and they were evasive and shady. I was told they would stop the fraudlent charges of 19.95 and credit me for back charges for some IDsafety stuff that they could not explain what it was and that I agreed to it when doing business once with Intellius. I gleaned from they are Adaptive Marketing in Omaha NE and have a quite a rap sheet on the net attached to them. I am still not sure they will actually stop charging me yet.
I HAVE ASKED YOU AGAIN TO CANCEL THIS CHARGE ON MY CC. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN ON MY CC. THANK YOU.
I noticed on my bank statement that PMI had been taking out $19.95 from my checking account since February. I don't check my bank statements because I didn't have any reason to think this would happen to me. When I called PMI, i asked them how they got my credit card information and they told me that Intelius (People Search.com) was their client and when you put all your credit card info into the peoplesearch.com website, it redirects you to Intelius and that's when i signed up. I'm not a dumbass. I know i didn't sign up for this so when i asked the girl on the phone to send me a copy of the form i supposibly signed up for, she said she didn't have a copy of it and when I told her that she didn't have any proof that i had signed up for this company, she got angry and started raising her voice at me. I have decided to take this matter to the Attorney Generals Office and would like anyone to contact me if they are interested in getting their money back. This company needs to be stopped!
I have had $1.00 taken from my debit card two times and then $19.95 taken out once. I am going ot my bank tomorrow and change everything. I di not authorize this and neither did I want a membership. Do not even know who they are. I want my money back and want this stopped and these people are scammers put in prison..I think I know who they are they are most likely affiliated with Kevin Smith
THEY TOOK MONEY FROM MY ACCOUNT TWICE BUT TRIED 5 TIMES.
Frustrated in Ohio
I got similar charges since February 2008 on my credit card - $19.95/mo. I used Intellus a few days earlier. Other fraud reporting websites like this indicate that Intellus and PMIdentity.com are in league together - automatic charges if you use Intellus.
I called my credit card today - the service rep. said I must contact PMIdentity and get it resolved, if not, then call them back. PM Identity should give my credit card company the proof that I ordered this service, but I can't see it. Then my cc co will discuss again with me if accurate.
I also went to the PMIdentity website and asked for my ID and password since I haven't received any of their services. An automated email message said it will take 2 days minimum to get back to me.
I get these services from Equifax and don't need redundant services.
I had the same thing happen to me. Is there anything we can do other than dispute it with the bank? They said they would cancel my membership, but I want the money they stole from me.
i decided to call them since they twice STOLE $19.95 out of my checking account. They said that I agreed to an offer somehow somehwere and when I looked on here I see that I am not the only person that has been affected. The internet can be great but it can also hurt you.
i purchased from intelius.com and the charge was only $17 and some change, and than 4 days later a charge from pmidentity.com showed up for $19.95 which i know i didnt purchase......are these two sites connected? this is such a rip off and i do not appreciate when companies just go in and charge your account. i called the number that showed up on the statement 888-840-6301 and cancelled these unauthorized charges.
i had this unauthorized charge on my bill for 3 months. 19.95 for using some kinda intelius program
I also had an unauthorized charge on my credit card from phone number 888-840-6301 for $19.95. Thanks to y'all for reporting your findings.
My contact was not by phone but they gleaned my details from the net. Now I cannot contact them to get some redress or even get the deductions removed from my bank account
DONT APPRECIATE CHARGING MY CC# ********UNAUTHORIZED!!!!! AND THEN
HAVE YOU ON HOLD FOR NEALLY 15 MINS.........
