Epoch.com

I was checking the account statement randomly when I found one transaction which had Epoch.com on it for an amount of $122.52 on 16/09/13 which said something like www.Epoch.com . I googled it and found that the company was registered in CAL (California, USA) My next action was to call my bank and dispute the transaction on 19/09/13 as it was still pending & I never did authorize it. Also, I did block my card and the bank was happy to issue me a new Debit card . When I checked my account...

Epoch.com

My bank contacted me today regarding some possible fraud on the debit card. So I went to my online bank statement, and sure enough there were 2 transactions I did not make or authorize from a company called EPOCH. I have never heard of this place and i don't even know what they were charging me for. I do not buy things online. I had to freeze all my accounts and now I have to wait till my bank is open before i can resolve this....

Epoch.com

So yesterday i discovered that several transactions had been charged to my card that i did not make. I will admit that i did make one charge, but not with EPOCH and not with the site that EPOCH says i went to. They have no business location listed, so even though i would like to get the cops to investigate, i can't. Now i have to call my bank, tell them to cancel my card, get them to send a fraud report, which involves sending IT and police to my place of residence, in front of friends and...

The Galley Restaurant
Galley, Oldest Restaurant in Santa Monica, Captain Ron Shady! Laptop stolen, staff unhelpful in filing complete police report.

Laptop was left unattended for under 10 minutes. I take the blame for leaving the laptop unattended. However, I expected the Galley Restaurant to be willing in filing a complete police report. When the police arrived the manager of the restaurant could not produce her ID and kept on yawning in the cops face. Very unhelpful staff. After paying over $100 for our meal, I would expect the manager to be more than willing to provide identification and proper details to the authorities. The owner of...

Power Athletes, LLC
Credit Card Billed, But No Product Sent Or Inquiry Answered

The other complainant here should consider himself lucky that he actually received his order from this company. I purchased a set of gymnastic rings, marketed as "EXF Rings", on September 20th. My Visa account was immediately billed upon ordering it, but no product was ever sent. November 5th (7 weeks after the order was placed) I sent an e-mail (which the company states is its preferred mode of communication) to inquire about the status of my order, and asking to please reimburse me for the...

I may have signed up for the trial-- usually trials are free but you have to submit your credit card info. Lo and behold, they took the $14.95 from my credit card-- and an additional LARGE amount on top of that. If I knew what the additional amount was (MYLIFE *WSFY-SEARCH). I have notified my credit card company. Can anything be done to stop this ripoff?...

Nue Science
"Trial Offer" turned out to be a scam.

On October 31, 2011, I sent for a free trial offer from Nue Science which I saw advertised on the internet. The ad said that I only had to pay the shipping fee of $4.95 USD. The $4.95 appeared on my November credit card statement. Yesterday (December 6) I finally received the product However, today I noticed that on my December credit card bill, I had been charged $98.45 USD by the same company. I phoned to see what this was about and the customer service lady said that this was a 16-day trial...

Hair Designer's Studio, Inc
Called and said if we don't renew they would pull us off of Google

I received a call one afternoon from the 411 Local company to let me know that they wanted me to renew with them. I wasn't aware that I had signed up with them from before. They proceeded to tell me that they would take me off Google maps if I didn't comply with their demand. I asked them to email me the password they had to verify that they were legitimate. They emailed me and said they couldn't release this information and persisted that I renew or they would take me off the Google Maps. I am...

FIRECRACKER FILMS
Warning! Fraudulent company ripped off me and my minor daughter after starring in a Reality Show. They claimed they were working for the Oprah show. To date we have no proof or knowledge.

My daughter and I acted in a film called "Mom and Me" for the Firecracker Film company. They claim they were to sell it to the Oprah "OWN" network to be aired in November on the Oprah show. According to "THEIR" contract (Firecracker Films) once an actor has done a reasonable amount of work they are entitled to one half of the compensation and the other half upon completion. I know my daughter, myself and other family members have exhibited more than half work to this company. Show was supposed...

Rosland capital
Used deceptive tactics to sell me over-priced coins & lied about the quality of coins I was to receive

After viewing rosland capital's ads on the fox news channel I thought I would make a small investment in silver. A sales rep. advised me to purchase 35 $1 Morgan Silver Dollars in MS63 condition @ 84$ each,way,way over priced! and 55 Morgan Peace Dollars in AU to VFine condition @ 36.60 each, not too bad. But when my shipment arrived I found that only 10 of the Morgan Peace Dollars met the numismatic discription of AU to VFine and the other 45 coins were in very poor shape. Of course I...

Everlasting Adoptions
Carol Shepherd $8,700 for nothing

Recently my wife and I decided that we wanted to adopt a child.

And then we paid $8,700 for their services. It was a good long time before we heard anything from them again. After nearly nine...
