This Company and I use this term very loosely is nothing more than an out-and-out scam from the git-go. RebateWork.com advertises in local and metro newspapers, such as in my case the Tampa Tribune Classified Ads. The ads for "Rebate Processors" are without question deceptive. The Tampa Tribune Classified Ad Manager, Rick Leach, even confirmed RebateWork.com was an "advertising partner," of theirs. When I advised him as to my encounter with these scumballs and what you "apply for" and what you actually get into for $97.00 is nothing more than a fullfledged scam. YOU ARE NOT PROCESSING REBATES OR CREDITS ON CONSUMER ACCOUNTS INSTEAD YOU ARE ROPED INTO A CREDIT CARD SALES SOLICITATION PROGRAM...completely the opposite of what their ads solicit.
I am a licensed Private Investigator and should known better from the outset.
What is even more baffling is once you "click" on Rebate.com's web site there are pages and pages of "success stories" and "GUARANTEES OF FULL REFUND" if you cancel out of the program within 60 days. Guess what, it doesn't happen. It's nothing but BS. Once you begin your "Application Process" you are automatically linked to creditaccess.com, which is probably the actual company "fronting" RebateWork.com.
You can fill out and get confirmation back from creditaccess.com your "Your refund claim has been received," but forget it if you think THEY will refund you your $97 Application Fee. I know firsthand, I checked on it a week later...NO REFUND on my credit card. All-in-all I ended up with several hundred dollars worth of headaches with my credit card company having to cancel my credit card and reissuing a new one over this ***. Currently, the Fraud Dept. of WAMU is investigating this matter in an effort to credit my account the $97.
As time permits, I will be contacting the National Division of the Better Business Bureau to file a duplicate complaint against these bastards, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and the Feds. It's amazing what *** artists can get by with considering they use all the right media sources to pull off their schemes.
