TLG Great fun debited my checking account $12.99 without my knowledge. Beware of this on-line scam.

I had ordered business cards from Overnight.com and had put the order on my debit card. Some promo popped up from Great Fun. I kept trying to get out of it. They said that when I clicked on it that I signed up for a membership and they took my debit card # from my order with Overnight.com.

I had no idea until it shows up on my on-line banking. To get it taken off and discontinued, call them at 1-877-488-9480. Demand a refund and a cancellation.

You have to be forceful with them. Good luck.

I noticed this recurrent charge of $16.99. Backtracking they got my information when I purchased a ticket for SPIRIT AIRLINES.

Just saw a charge from them and was like.... I have no idea what you are.

looked online and saw this post, called the number that you posted and was able to figure out how/why they got my info- I stayed at a hotel ONE night and during the reservation call they passed me off to two other phone numbers to get some kind of rebate, I was busy and just wanted to be done with the calls, and forgot all about it. Come February they charged me $16.99 US, and then again this month for $16.99. I managed to get this month refunded, but they would not refund the first payment. If you ever see TLG Great Fun, in your charge history, Call that number and dispute the crud out of that.

They will try and tell you all the benefits you receive (all of which require you to mail in a rebate) are worthwhile and that you will save up to $130 a year by using them- that's not counting how much they charge you monthly, and that's only if you are ACTIVELY sending in rebates.

You'll be in the hole $204 a year if you let it go on unattended. Take care of it ASAP.

I just disputed 4 transactions since March with this company that shows up as TLG GREATFN on my bank statements. They were taking $15.00 a month and I didn't even notice it was a scam until googling it. Thank you all for the comments!

I never check my account statements. I was unknowingly charged 16.99 per month for nearly a year.

I called the bank and told them these were not legitimate charges. They said I would have to contact the company that made the charges (TLG*Great Fun). I blew it off and just had the card canceled. Again, I never checked my statements.

I just checked and realized TLG*Great Fun has refunded my for ten months of 16.99 charges, totaling about $169!

What a pleasant surprise! I don't know what happened, if my bank contacted them or if they got in trouble with the law and was forced to refund the people they've scammed or what but I'm glad I got my money back.

I've been really busy with work school and family health issues so I hadn't been as attentive to my credit card charges as I should have been. Apparently I was automatically signed up when I wanted a rebate for a car rental last August.

When I called the customer service I cancelled my order and demanded a refund. I was told that I was not elligible for a refund. I requested an email confirmation of the cancellation but was told that the company does not allow emails.

At this point I was livid.

I told the operator that everything I've found on the internet about this company was a scam, and she immediately offered a 2 month refund. I told her that wasn't going to do it for me and asked to speak to a supervisor. Then she counters with telling her she can offer me a 4 month refund for the 16.99 I've been getting charge for the past 6 months. She then directs my call to her supervisor.

The supervisor insists that I can only receive 4 months credit. I ask again for some sort of statement from them whether it's an email or letter by mail of my request and tell her I think it's absolutely ludicrous that they will not offer and physical proof of my cancellation. The supervisor told me I should be getting the email in 10-15 business days.

Total scam, but I was able to get $68 refunded at least.

I'm sure if I kept at it with the supervisor I could have gotten more of a refund.

They know they still make money off of a 4 month refund regardless, and I'm sure they could have given me at least a 6 month refund at that. In any case you have to be firm and demanding, if not ***-ish, to get anything back from them.

I bought tickets from Ticket Master and apparently somehow signed up for this ***. I received a call from this company confirming the member and I asked them to cancel it right away.

4 month later I realize that I've been charged every month 16.99. I called this company and asked to cancel my membership once again and refund the money.

They refused to refund all of the charges at first but then they said fine. This is another scam designed to charge people for services they did not want.

I didn't even realize that i was getting charged on a monthly basis since July until I paid off the balance of my card. Luckily it was with Chase and right now they are going to file "fraud" and dispute every single transaction!!! Almost $200!!

So annoyed. I signed up for them to receive a credit towards my flight on Allegiant.

I could cancel at any time. I called into cancel a month later and the man tried to stop me. I said no and that I wanted to cancel but he never did. I then look at my statement 8 months later and there is a charge again.

I called in and was super forceful they finally gave me a cancellation confirmation and refunded my money for only 6 months.

IT IS A COMPLETE SCAM. Make sure to get a cancellation confirmation number.

They charged me twice in one day. Both at $16.99.

I had to call, and be forceful.

The lady kept telling me about my benefits with my membership and that I was not eligible for a refund. But after continuing arguing she cancelled and refunded.

I just notice two charges for $16.99 for great fun and shoppers. You have to be forceful to get you name off the list.

They're picking up information when you shop online. The number I used for Great Fun is 877-488-9480. They go through the scenero that they can't locate you.

Just provide your name and/or email address and demand they take you off the list. I will be reporting this company to the Better Business Bureau.

Same type of thing happened to me only when I called to ask where they got my info they claimed from Priceline. Then, I called Priceline and after talking to a supervisor he said they had no affiliation with this Great Fun company that was charging me every month without me ever knowing I signed up.

Long story short I had to cancel my card and have my bank help me work things out. Great Fun is very shady to say the least.
