I just found a charge of 69.95 on a work credit card that my husband uses and missed the charge. It was made in May of 2011. We didn't receive anything for this and never ordered anything from I-Tech Marketing. Unfortunately, other monthly charges from similar undetectable names occured the following months and my husband never caught it on the CC statements. We just received a bottle of supplements this last week that triggered me looking through all credit card bills. It was addressed to me and yet I don't have that CC and it is only used for certain charges that my husband makes. This is very disconcerting as we are now out hundreds of dollars.
Yup, same exact thing happened to me... bought some trial of Colon Cleanse and Acai Berrry pills a year ago, and now suddenly there are charges showing up on my online banking from other companies in weird amounts that I didn't order.
The only thing that tipped me off was that I randomly got a pack of Resveratrol pills mailed to me this week that I didn't order. So I checked my banking and saw I'd been charged $39.95 for them, along with a bunch of other charges in the past couple months.
It's from an old account I don't use much anymore, that's why I didn't catch it right away. The bad thing is, I have a Visa-Debit account where they money comes straight out of my account... so it's GONE... hope I can get it back!
I was going through my bank statements and have found severeal unauthorized credit card charges from this phone number please stop tjhese people!
I've been disputing charges on my credit card for almost a year now. It started off as charges from a company called DietMax. After I disputed the charge and put a stop on any charges from DietMax, they changed their name and rebilled my credit card. This has happened numerous times now over the past 10 months. On my most recent credit card bill I was charged $69.95 from I-Tech Marketing and $8.95 from Fit Mentor for services or products never received. I cancelled my card but was told that I am still responsible for recurring monthly charges on my closed account and have to dispute these fraudulent charges every time they appear on my account. There is no easy way to get rid of this guys. I quit using my credit card so that I don't overlook any fraudulent charges and pay these people by mistake. I don't know what, if anything, can be done to put these folks out of business.
Be warned, the charges appear as both "Dr. Guide" and "I-tech" and are the same company. I caught $80 in fraudulent charges today.
I had same issue where I ordered Acai berries online from a company called Nutrigenic life of LLC stationed in FL for free trial which I cancelled with a huge hassle and several chargebacks. Since these companies are LLC'S I am pretty sure same owner He will attempt to capture small charges periodically on your statement in hope that you do not notice and have companies listed on statement that you are unfamiliar with and numbers that are not valid or incredibly difficult to reach, all indicate Texas on statement. I did a search for this berry company on secretary of state for FL which is where label of product indicates it is located and I did find this information:

I agree something needs to be done this is probably the 8th charge from this guy that is without my consent or knowledge. I researched the various companies & telephone numbers on my statement only to find this fraudster has affected MANY people. We need to file a class action suit or do SOMETHING. This guy needs to be stopped!
I received an e-mail on May 17, 2011, stating I was going to be charged $69.95 from a company I never hear of and for products I never ordered. I e-mailed the company and told them to take me off of their mailing list and not to do anything else. When I checked my bank account that same day, the $ 69.95 was already pending. I called the number on the e-mail 877-828-3227. After 19 min 56 seconds waiting on hold, a man named Malcom answered and said they got my credit card number from another company that I had purchased from online last year. Malcom said he would reverse the charge. On May 20, 2011 I called the same number and again after 18 minutes on hold, a woman named Erica said they were going to put the money back in my account, then she hung up on me. On May 26, 2011, I called again 19min 24 sec. on hold, I spoke with Jack. He said it would take 15 to 20 business days to get the refund. Today, June 20, 2011, I called the number again and it is no longer working and I still do not have my refund and I never received any product. The charge was from I-Tech. I do not know what it is, but now I realize it was a scam.

I have the same charges made to my account, $69.95 and $2.95 for currency exchange. I looked up the number and found it registered to a 'Joe Gonzales' but I didn't pay the extra fee to get the address, because I really don't care what that is, I just want it refunded. However; the waiting on hold and they have obnoxious music playing so you won't stay on the line and wait for a rep, caused me to hang-up 3 times already! From what I've read it won't matter if I get through to someone it all boils down to one thing, I'll have to cancel my card!! ' I-Tech Marketing LTD The Valley'' is what charged on my card and the same crap was supposedly ordered 'weight loss' product. From the comments on this page it seems I didn't have to do anything but browse the products, which makes it very disturbing since I have several anti (everything) spyware products on my computer and this crap still happens. Well I'm cancelling my card first thing in the morning!
Hi all, great to find info on these fraudsters... We should all team up together and close down these companies taking money without any authorisation! It's wrong and nasty nobody can protect us from such companies when there are hundred of people facing the same issues! I'm going to call them today and make a youtube video to help anybody else from being a victim of fraud. I had enough!
charged cc 69.95.......can't get any representative on phone to dispute
In addition to my first post, I don't answer calls I don't recognize, but this number did call my home phone. My voice mail picked up and they did not leave a message. Are they able to get your CC # from your phone #? Did my voice mail picking up confirm that it was a correct #.
just disputed a charge for $69.95 and another for $.56 listed as an international fee. I ordered the sample colon cleanse stuff last year too and they kept charging me after I canceled. Someone else posted that. It must be related. Also had a $2.95 charge from a Dr. Guide. Don't know what that was. Surely there is some way to catch these people. My card has been canceled, it's just an aggravation to have to wait on another when you need to use it. When I tried to call, it said all reps are busy, call back later. Never was able to get through.
I saw this charge of $69.95 in my bank statement, immediately i call my bank they gave me this number to call. i called and nobody answered, will call my bank again to investigate.
RR got it right. This is a scam brought to you by the Max Cleanse or Natura Cleanse folks.
You should report as fraud, cancel and replace your cards. Do NOT process as a disputed charge. This may allow your bank to credit your funds back, but will not protect you from future charges. You must cancel your CC and re-issue with a new number.
I-Tech Marketing (aka Dr. Guide MD) is using your/my debit/credit card from a previous order (like Acaiberry Weight Loss product, Colon Cleanse or Teeth Whitener) that included a Free 7-14 Day Trial. They are claiming that you/I placed an order in April 2011 then emailing (from a gmail account) an invoice to you/me in May 2011. I recommend contacting your bank institution immediately and dispute any charges related to I-Tech Marketing (aka Dr. Guide MD). Most likely your bank will close your account and issue you a new card. This company is a SCAM!
Oh yes they did charge my CC
Checked my credit card and there was a charge for the 69.95. I called my CC company and the CS rep i initially spoke with asked me how she could help...went into the speel and she stopped me and asked if it was from i tech marketing...yeppers...then she transferred me to the fraud department. They cancelled my card. Thank goodness i check my cc activity. I did look back to last Oct when i tried some aciaburn product for a trial price. Of course they tried to add all these additional things of which i promptly called and cancelled. I got email confirmations of the cancellations. But it was a different company...so not sure if they share everyones info..
Anyhow, I Tech Marketing is actually in a foreign country that you would have never heard off.
im changing all my credit card numbers!
Beware - if something seems too good to be true...it probably is!!!
i got an email from i tech marketing stating the charge for 69 buck for something. they had my name and my military address. the thanked me for my order??? What order...I didnt order anything! some weight loss thing...anyhow...called the 877 number and it no longer in use.
Checked my bank accounts and dont see a charge yet...there was a gmail email to inquire ... yeah a gmail account...
The same thing happened to me. I never ordered anything from this company. Any ideas how they got our information?
I just had this happen to me. My bank told me I have to wait until the charges go the bank before I can dispute them. They cancelled by card. I received an email order "conformation" for something weight loss. The email gave me a website to go to for ebooks and stated that the charge would read I-Tech Marketing. I did an internet search for I-Tech and called them. I got an answering machine stating that they did not place any charges on my account nor are they shipping anything to me. I waited on hold for over an hour and got no answer. The email stated that I placed this order on April 11,2011 and wasn't billed unti May 19, 2011. Please beware.
Same thing happened to me... on the email statement I received it says that the order was placed on April 4, 2011 (I was on vacation out of the country) but was billed on May 19, 2011... weird! It doesn't say what it was for either. I called my credit card company and they cancelled my card, will be sending me a new one and will cancel the $69,95 charges. BTW, I'm writing this post while I'm on hold with this company (which I don't even know the name)!!
Same just happened except I stayed on the line for over 30 minutes and finally an obnoxious NORTHERNER answered the phone and told me I did order something but I don't remember. Don't take the 'Northerner' term personally folks because I'm from Brooklyn myself. He refused to give me his name, the company he worked for, nor the company who was going to charge me. He told me he canceled the order and gave me the same number as the Confirmation Number! I told him I work for a government agency, which I do, and that so does my husband and we were going to report Internet Fraud. He told me he knows for a fact the FBI will do nothing regarding Internet fraud, was extremely nasty and rude to me, told me I know nothing and hung up on me. Folks, I wasn't nasty at all and I can see I'm not the only one.
How are we going to get this guy or these people??
Same issue, how the hell did they get my info? I dont understand.
same exact thing just happend to me, and am still on hold. Never ordered any thing nor do I have a clue on how they accquired my contact info
Same exact thing just happend to me, never placed order, still on hold.
Received an email with a confirmation number and a charge for $69.95 stating my statement would read: I Tech Marketing. I didn't order anything from them so I called 877-828-3227 to inquire about the charge and was put on hold. I hung up after several minutes when no one answered.
No one there and now I have money taken from my bank account. I tried to call the number back and no answer. going to file a police report BEWARE
