My fiancé and I have been looking for payday loans online, because times have been extremely hard for us right now. One or more of the loan companies that we have applied to have sold our information to savingmakesmoney.com, at which point got all of our bank account information. They made an unauthorized debit in the amount of $87.00, with an overdraft fee of $36.00. This totals $123.00. This is a lot of money for somebody that is on a fixed income, and is very poor. I reported this to my bank, and they argued with me. I made a police report, which seemed to think I actually authorized the charge. This makes me sick. What kind of justice can come from this?

unauthorized transaction from my ckecking account
I noticed a bank statement of an overdraft fee and a transaction of $87.00. When calling the company Savings Makes Money, the customer service representative immediately asks for my banking information to look up my account. I refused to give her that information but offered a so called 'customer number ' which did nothing. I spoke to a lady named 'Ella Taylor' who by the way had a very strong middle Eastern accent. She was unable to give me the first name of the person who ordered this account. When asking for a refund she gave me the runaround saying I need to fill out application on web site. She never said I would get my money back. But she did say she would call us with a refund status. I have never heard of this company before. Until now.

Fraudulent withdrawal of funds
While in the process of seeking a payday loan learned Savings Makes Money withdrew funds from my checking account without authorization, refuse to acknowledge the illegitimacy of the fraudulent actions and stated they would send cancel forms which they haven't.

CHARGE MY BANK ACCOUNT FOR UNORDERED PROGRAM
people beware!!! this company is a rip off. the company signed me up and used my bank information to charge me $87 for this program, which i did not authorize. after i checked with my bank, i discovered my money was gone, the bank declined to do something until i talked to someone at this company. i called on 12/28/15 and was told to allow one week for them to solve the problem and refund my bank account for the erroneous charge. however, after i called on 1/4/16, i was told the faxed records from my bank had not been received and again to allow another week for the faxes to be reviewed. as anyone can imagine, i was very upset because it was the second time i had been told to wait one week for them to look up the records. i must say, customer service is very well trained, they are just like an automated machine that repeats the same words, word per word. as anyone can imagine after calling several times and being told exactly the same thing over and over, i was extremely upset and asked the customer service employee just to tell me if they were going to refund my money or if they intended to keep it. i just did not want to waste more time calling and calling. finally after i called again on 1/12/16, the customer service employee informed me to allow another week, and off course that did it. i told the woman that i was going to write a review on facebook because this just did not make any sense and explained that every time i called i was told the same thing over and over and she stated that as soon as someone got my message they would return my call. well, finally after i told the woman at customer service that i was going to write a review on fb she called me and left a message in my voice mail stating they had received the fax showing the bank statement where the money had been taking out and to top it off, the message stated that i needed to allow 30 days on top of the time i had been waiting for them to check their faxes. this is outrageous. they have copies of the papers signed stating i did not authorize the charge to my bank account, they have copies of the bank statement showing the money was taken out of my account, i faxed the papers 5 times and it took from 12/28/15 to 1/12/16 to check their fax machine just to tell me i have to allow 30 days to get my refund back. t h i s is r i d i c u l o u s!!!
please b e w a r e, do not enter information on the internet because you may never see your money again. this company is a f r a u d!!!45 days to get a refund is outrageous. it sounds like they want to keep that very little money to run their scam of business because people are probably asking for their money back and just do not have the resources to back up this business. i will keep you updated as to see how long it takes this company to refund my money. in the meantime i will report this issue to all the internet venues i can think off.

I was charged money that I did not authorize it
I was charged $87.00 for a membership for Saving Makes Money and I did not authorize it. When I saw the window come up, I quickly clicked off it. I DID NOT CLICK ON "SUBMIT"! I called once and was rudely hung up on! Called back and they told me that it will take up to 30 days to "possibly" receive my money back. I'm really irate at the moment!

Accessing Personal Checking Account
I Accessed This Website Looking For A Loan. Since I Had Accessed Other Loan Web Sites, My Personal And Financial Information Was Available. When I Saw The Terms Of Agreement Fine Print, I Left The Website Quickly. Approximately Five Days Later, Savings Makes Money Billed My Checking Account For $87.00 Dollars Which I Did Not Authorize And Caused Me An Overdraft Charge To My Account For $34.00 Dollars.

Fraudulent charges from my account
This company withdrew money from my account without my knowledge or consent. The check states that I pre autorized this transaction. This is not true. I had no idea who this company was and now my account is over drawn 100 dollars with there charge plus fees. How do people even get away with this? SCARY.

Cashing checks that I did not authorize.
They cashed checks for 87$ and when i contacted these indians they kept saying i ordered coupons. Umm never would i order coupons. Then said i was approved for a 5000 loan. I dont want a loan nor did i apply for one. They would not answer any questions & hung up on me. So i had to make a dispute through my bank. These bastards need to be caught. Its not fair & they are scamming innocent people.

Not refunding my money when I called numerous fimes
I applied for a loan online, giving my routing and account numbers. An unauthorized transaction of $87 was taken out of checking account through an electronic check. I never gave my information to this company. There are 197 unresolved complaints with the BBB. This company is also known to offer loans. That is how they got my checking information.

Unauthorized bank withdrawls and not returning the amount plus damages.
I have the same complaint as everyone else that I read here and on the BBB's website. Taking $87 out of my account without my authorization and putting me in the red with $30 overdraft fee. Cant get any answers from the company because they ask for an order/account# that I never had.

Scamming Makes Money
This company presented an $87 check to my savings account (I never have money in that account and only use to pay my Victoria's Secret Credit Card so I NEVER give that out). I called and spoke to some rude lady about canceling and she talked over me and hung up and "could only look up my account using my savings account number". Even after explaining I did NOT authorize this charge, nor do I want anything they offer, she said it had been canceled and told me how to get refunded, by sending in a special form and my bank statement. The very next day I a $25 check was presented to the same account for $25. I called again and was told they don't take out $25 only $87 initially and $19.95 each month after. This lady wouldn't give me any information or let me speak with a manager, no fraud department, nothing! My bank sent the info to their Fraud department but I may not be able to get refunded.

Elec Check posted to by checking account without authorization
I noticed that an electronic $87.00 check was applied to my checking account from SavingsMakesMoney.com. I have never heard of this company nor have I ever done any business with this company. When I contacted them about this transaction, they indicated that I did authorize this transaction and subsequently was able to verify all of my personal/demographic informaiton.

Deducted money from my account without consent
I was applying for loans which I never received and then I see that $87.00 was deducted out of my account from Savings Makes Money. I have never even heard of this company before let alone signed up with them. I want a full refund!!!! It says that I have to ask for the refund within 5 days after the purchase. I wasn't even aware of the purchase. This is wrong!!!!
