I was away from my house during June of this year. When I returned home I Picked up the mail that had accumulated during that month. Among these was my VISA Bill, which included a charge for $96.00 from Discounts USA.
I also found the packet that Discounts USA had sent by "Presorted Mail" ( Third Class Mail, also called "Junk Mail"!) Needless to say I was Mad!
I contacted the Credit Card Company to challenge the charge, and have also contacted the Michigan Attourney General to report this scam.
I DID NOT authorise Discounts USA (Or anyone else) to charge me for their services. As I looked through the packet I noticed a letter staring that I would be charged if I did not reply within 30 days. Because I was away from home when this letter arrived I was billed the charges. According to the Michigan Attourney General this is called a "Negative Option" Scam and is illegal.
