gave out my credit card info
several months ago a fam. member suggested that I contact Barton Publishing for information on natural methods for controlling diabetes. I e-mailed Barton Publishing and ordered ONE item (the diabetes booklet). I DID NOT ask for, request any further information about or sign up for anything else from them or anyone else - including any 'Free Trials' of anything. However, shortly after ordering ONLY the diabetes newsletter, I discovered several 'automatic' charges to my American Express credit card from companies/businesses I'd never even heard of - All were traced back to Barton Publishing. I subsequently went through pure h*ll trying to get these charges - and any further charges - stopped. It was all to no avail; the charges continued until I contacted Amer. Express and they took care of the prob. for me. To this day I've had a few similar experiences with other disreputable, unethical companies and can't for the life of me believe that these people can get away with what they're doing and call it legal. I have to call it what it is, and that is , 'unauthorized use of a credit card' I've only had a computer for a few months, so I'm new to internet shopping; but what I'm seeing is downright shocking and in my mind it doesn't have to be that way. So.....I will do whatever I can to stop these shady, rip-off artists who give the honest, reputable businesses/companies a bad name.
