There is an amount on my statement of $19.90 per month with this phone number attached (Itd 800-533-5964 Sigonfile). What is this?
I have never given permission for $19.90 to be deducted from mu bank account. Want it cancelled, please
Having the same problem. This company scams older folks. I am helping a 94 year old and noticed 19.90 being deducted from his account every month. I was supposed to get 59.70 back but they only gave him 39. They need to be reported.
I'm noticing this as well and am frustrated. my mother has alzheimers and unless i unplug the phone she is bilked by idiots wanting to make easy money
I did not receive a call from ITD, but my mother-in-law did. She signed up for the $19.90 a month 'deal'....what a scam! I discovered this when going over her checking account statements. the charge was actually coming out twice a month! I have called and supposedly cancelled this, but we'll see what happens (today is July 25, 2013), I'll have to monitor this checking account. There are actually two numbers associated with "ITD" - 800-533-5964 and 866-236-3714
I have the same issue, my mom's account is being debited $19.90 every month. I called the number and got International Travel Discount. I asked them to cancel my mom's account and they said they would- we'll see next month.
I just took over my parents bank account and found these same debit charges for 19.90 each month for a period of nine months totaling $179.10 from Sigonfile IDT 800-533-5964. I called the phone number and they said it was for discounts while traveling. I told them my father was 94 years old and my mother was 90 and that they are both ill and do not travel. They said they would refund the money. Well, we will wait and see. I think they got my parents information from a check that dad had mom send in for handling charges to enter one of these bogus sweepstakes. We need to do something about this. What can we do to get these people in front of a judge?
THAT IS SCARY,THERE ARE SO MANY CONS OUT THERE, I CAUGHT A CASHIER WATCHING ME PUT MY PIN NO IN!
Awesome! I have the same problem with my elderly Dad's account.
The customer service representative I reached when I called this number to stop the recurring withdrawals from my mother's checking account was surprisingly courteous and even indicated that the most recent withdrawal would be refunded. While it remains to be seen whether they will follow up on their promise remains to be seen but approaching with a non-confrontational attitude seems to make things go smoothly.
They did this to my 85 year old mom-I am so angry- called them and first told me they would give her one month back "all they could do" then 3 months and after I told them I am reporting them ther bank as a fraud and the police and the better business bureau the woman said "she wanted to end this conversation and would put all the money back into my moms account within 10 days-we will see - after I see the money I will still report them! How dare they take advantage to my mom and all these other elderly people!!
Have the same thing happening to my mother. They told me I could get one months of money returned , then it went to tthree months back THEN I told them I was going to the DA and police and by the end of conversation got all her money back. Still going to DA and police Be persistent with them and you can get all your mony back
Yes, I was checking my mother's account and asked her who the company was and she said she didn't know...they withdrew the 19.90 as well. I will be calling the federal trade commission on Monday to file a complaint against them and I will also be calling them to let them know. I will try to get back on and post an update on any instruction or direction from the FTC and how to go forward.
I just found out my account was charged 19.90$...for what i dont know.
Need Help Too
Did they cancel it? I noticed they change there name about every 6 months. My mother in law is being charged 19.90 twice a month for a few years now. They called themselves ITD, IPS and Deaco Systems. I have phoned the number the bank had on file they cancelled with no problem...we will see.
taking money from fathers account - age 82 - how do they get the bank information
These people have been drafting $19.90 from my 94 year old mother's checking account for the past year after she entered a sweepstake. It was only by accident that we found out about this as she has been recovering from a fall. These people are really sleazy scamers and take advantage of the old. I called the number and they said they would cancel the draft on her account after I gave them the zip code and last name. We'll see if this really happens.
These people are bad
These people are taking money out of peoples banks and they are saying that teh people have signed for it I just had a disaggreement with IDT about it. She says she will cancel one payment but I didn't sign up for this. They are scammers so do not sign anything with IDT or PHP they are all in it together.
Just realized my 84 year old father has been scammed for $19.90 for the last 13 months. They have upped it now and are deductiong 19.90 two times per month.
Now taking care of my uncle and having same problem. He can't recall approval; moving to close the account quickly. Beware - They prey on the elderly....
Just found this company debiting my mom's account for 6 months!
I have been scammed too. Found out today has been takin money out of my account since 2007 i just did not pick up on it because i have other bills debited out of my account. Called them got a woman said i signed up for travel services which i dont travel said would cancel and send one month fee back of 19.90 .My husband called them back to question bill said i signed up for medical services have never recieved any cards or info about services. The bank said i coulkd close my account or pay five dollars a month to do a stop payment which will still cost money cant win! Is there any justice in this world.
This company, sigonfile itd, same phone number above, has pulled money ($19.90) from my mothers account also. FRAUD.
I saw a $19.90 deduction from my 89 year old mother's checking account. The posted transaction had this phone number in the line so I checked it here and learned about the scam. I let my mother know and she had not authorized it. She had signed up to enter a sweepstakes and that check also showed the same payee. From the information learned at this website my husband called them and let them know the first check was with her authorization but the $19.90 withdrawal was not. They talked about being a travel assistance company. They said the money would be refunded to her account within 10 days and I see it is there 4 days after contacting them. Thanks to those of you who posted information. We were able to get this stopped with the first withdrawal.
Same thing happened to an elderly gentleman whom I have POA for. They started debiting his bank account for $19.90 each month. I called and they said that he had mailed in a check for something, and he checked off a box authorizing them to debit his bank account each month. Of course he doesn't remember about it. They said they would cancel his "account" and refund the debit.
These people are operating on the edge of the law. They target elderly people and trick them into signing up for some dubious service. They have all the fine print figured out. Problem is the fineprint is too fine for elderly people to read. Once somebody starts to investigate them, they close up shop and reopen down the street under a different name.
Daughter of Scamee
A charge of 19.90 has been taken from my mother's checking account for 7 months now. I called the number and got a nasty receptionist who claims my mother signed up for a travel discount program. My mother is 95 and does not travel. She did, however, send in a check for a sweepstakes scam offered by this company, and they have since been charging her account $19.90 per month. Apparently, the ITD (International Travel Discounts) company preys on the elderly and steal their money on a regular basis. Beware!
I noticed the $19.90 charge on my parents checking account after I started helping them with their finances. They are both retired and have failing memory. We went to the bank and they said the automatic withdrawal was from "Physician Health Program". They gave us an 800 number to call for their customer service. I looked them up on google and could find nothing on them. I searched on the 800 number and found this site with multiple people getting scammed. I called their customer service and they found their account and explained what they provide. They had been signed up since April 2007. I asked her if they had any record of my parents even using their program and she said that their isn't any claim forms so she would'nt have any records. She was real fast in asking if they wanted to cancel, probably because they figured we'd gotten wise to their scam. It's too bad there are people like this who will take advantage of the elderly. I'm still checking with the bank to make sure it stays canceled! They are out $1074 for nothing.
on 08/31/11 and 09/30/11 i was charged by your company $19.90 (total $38.80);i don't recall doing business with you. please respond
Another concerned daughter
For years I've been urging my 88-year-old mom to shred all the junk mail she receives that offer her all kinds of fabulous prize only -- by sending only a few dollars to claim the prize. This one for "International Travel Discount Group" slipped under the radar because it was made to look like monthly payments of $19.90 to our Medical Services Plan: "ITD800-533-5964 MSP". It's now come to light that she's been making monthly payments since May 2008, for total payments of $756.20.
