I had previously posted that my mom had debits from her checking account noted to The ATI group. It turns out that the ATI group sells travel packages- cruises and vacations.
I called the 800-207-5578 number and requested a refund- which, amazingly, they were happy to do. Had to leave a message and talk to a couple of people but once I reached the supervisor he was very helpful.
The full refund is now in her account - and I'm impressed.
Call 800-207-5578 which is the contact to The Ati Group. You will need to leave a message for a c/b.
You need to contact the bank and challenge the charges first. Then advise the collection agency as such and they should back off. Now that they have your bank info you will need to close that bank account and open a new account with a new account number. That will stop them from taking $.
I contacted the Federal Trade Commission and filed a fraud complaint and in addition will be contacting the NY Attorney General. To file FTC complaint call 877-382-4357 then get a # from them for your local AG office.
I have been turned over to a collection agency to pay $250, and can't get any telephone number to contact the company, my husband also has dementia and is 86 and signed up, and we cannot afford it and want out.Any advice?
Do you have any other information that could be helpful?
I got an anwering service that I left a message for a c/b.
Are they located in Henderson, Nevada?
Thank you for the assistance.
I found three charges from ATI on my mother's bank statement ($495 twice and $995 once). As noted above, ATI is a semi-scam that sells cruise packages. They clearly target elderly people - especially those with memory problems. To their credit, they did agree to refund the money after I threatened legal action.
Yeah right. If I was a scammer I'd post that as well.
Get your facts straight before you talk a bunch of b***s***. They billed him the $495. It's not a lottery, he did not win anything. It is a discounted travel package that your dad signed up for. It's not the company's fault he can't remember cuz he has alziemers.
You people have no idea what you are talking about. These guys are sponsored by the walt disney company and holiday travel of america. I entered in it and got called by them and paid the $495 just like everybody else. I actually got my trips and my wife and I have been on 3 cruises so far. You just gotta stop being so ignorant and skeptical. Not every good deal out there is a scam.
Received a phone call from a Charles Nash with ATI Group, 1-800-207-2278 claiming I won a prize and they were holding a package worth between, $5,000 to $50,000 and asked me to verify my account & routing number before the package could be delivered. PLEASE? These people are obviously fraudster.
They scammed my dad
Stop providing your account number to people over the phone!! the only reason someone would ask for your debit card or account number is to take money from your account! It is a scam. You didn't win a vacation or free money. It is such a headache to have to open a new account and switch all of your checks and payments to a new account. Your bank can't help you because of privacy policies. No one will ever ask you to pay for something if you have won something. It is a scam.
1-800-207-5578 called about 4:30 Pacific time. said I had signed up for something (didn't) and walked me through. Got their phone number and they did not get my bank number. Warn your friends on Twitter and Facebook. Let's catch these guys!
These people took $695.00 out of Mom's account. She does not remember oking any tranaction for that amount. Please help stop this scam.
I received a very persistent phone call from this number on 7-12-12, 800-207-5578, indicating that I had ordered a cruise, and requesting that I give them numbers from a check in order to be charged $495 for a wonderful vacation cruise. When I told them to cancel the whole thing, that I could not go on such a cruise they finally agreed to cancel "my order", which I don't believe i ever made.
ATI its was suppose to be a 20,000 dallor package but I don't think it is real.Just a scam his name was Shoun Taylor he wanted a post dated check.that is void or supose to be.
My mother was scammed to the tune of 795.00 and doesn't have it to give away. i called and told them i wanjted refund asap and will call police if it is not returned promptly.v7u9
I received a call from this telemarketer On May 1st. Told them i did not want Vacation Package.Number is 1-800-207-5578 ' i am on National no call list also on Pennsylvania list. They just keep CALLING. dO NOT ANSWER
85 year old dad was told he won a huge pay out. ATI took 495.00 from his bank account. Law enforcement should get involved this is a horrible crime to the elderly.
my mom received a call yesterday and said that she had won over 11,000.00(they have her acct. no),they said that they were AIG company and to make a check out for 598.00 and mark it VOID,she told them that she only gets S.S.,they said "oh is that too much for you ,we can do 2 payments" she told them no,I dont want it,she continued to tell them no and finally they hung up on her,now she afraid because these people do have her checking acct. no. the phone no. they said they were calling from was 1-800-2075578
Same scam. 1-800-207-5578. ATI Group. Glen. Vacations won. 2 free land trips. One cruise on Carnival Cruise lines. All transferrable. Package to be delivered in 2-3weeks. For an invoice record, I need you to fill out a check with this information, etc, etc. Now fill out this amount...$495. Now SallySue, to finalize that you have won, I need the twelve digit number at the left hand side of your check.........HA! I HAD HIM!
I told him I don't give out my check info to anyone over the phone. He got ANGRY and told me that I would be taken off the list....to which I told him FINE. He hung up! They are phishing for your checking info so they can do an automatic debit from your account! Do NOT fall for them. They are trying to scam the elderly........or anyone gullible to think they are for real!
Received call about vacation package asked for check number. i told them i did not want the vacation package . I hope they do not get into my account .
My mother was charged $800.00 by this number and for what we don't know. This is a terrible thing to do to elderly people and if I ever catch these people I would like to see them quartered in a public square!
Law enforcement should really get a handle on this soon with all the complaints registered against them.
I have a fraud investigation started against them and I hope others follow suit.
My mother, 89 years old, shows a withdrawl from her bank account from the ATI Group at 800-207-5578. They took $395.00. If I find them, I will be taking blood from everyone involved with this scam.
big scam, travel tickets. call until you get a hold of someone and keep demanding a refund until you get it. threaten that your filing a police report, mike smith (john roberts) will s*** his pants.
My mom just got a call from 800-207-5578. I told her a million times throw away all those contests that come in the mail!!! She opened 45 letters from contests the other night I was there! If you know any seniors check in on them!
My Mom's bank account shows a withdrawal of $998.00 with the name The ATI Group and the phone number 800-207-5578. She does not remember a call that authorized this.
BTW, John Flynn (not his real name) is an 88 year old man who lives on a fixed income...had I NOT intervened, he would have complied with the request because Mr. Flynn is very "uninformed" about such things at his age! A true shame....
Got a call from Richard Wolfe telling him he won some money...but he needed to open a bank account and put the handling fee in first. This is a SCAM, SCAM, SCAM...I called the number and a woman's recorded voice identifys the group as ATI and asks to leave a mesage! These people should be hung up by their thumbs!
