I knew it was a scam from the get go, I typed in some bogus information just so I can read the fine print, and the fine print specify 19.73 now and 14$ a week. Lmao, people needs to be more smarter and learn to read. Stop being so Gullible.

    The email came up through Amazon and looked legitimate and I fell for it. The terms and conditions say that you can get a refund if you call within 30 days. I called and also followed up with an email to cancel well within the 30 days and was informed that I would receive a refund within 3-5 days. It's been almost 2 weeks and have not received anything. I ended up with a virus on my computer and had to spend hours for Geek Squad to try to remove. I still get pop-ups and random screen just open up. I still get pop-ups that say I won all of these different contests and Geek Squad can't seem to help beyond what they already did on my computer.

      the notification did not come through Amazon, it just kind of looks like it. have someone show you how to spot fakes. the other way you can avoid these issues without any tech savvy or internet know how is simple, don't be greedy and pretty much nobody gives away $500 items for free. BTW Geek Squad is good at Tier 1 problems such as "try restarting it", "your device had no battery", "make sure you plug your computer in before trying to use it". Go to a small local computer store with good ratings to fix your malware/virus.

    I got the Spectrum text every day, finally took it, read conditions & looked fine. Submitted my info & card, Viola pops up more Added Small print, u don't win a phone, u Pay $19.95 for SHIPPING ONLY & will receive your iPhone 11pro & the Feedback shows happy ppl. I just knew it was too good to be true, however… I did it!

    Then guys YELLING AT ME ... & said; Then LADY JUST GIVE ME UR CC & I'll charge $19.95 & $186 wouldn't give me another person to talk to (asked him to calm down I'm just asking simple questions) so said call BBB & hung up on me

    Total Scam called to see Why says I already entered & 1st guy (MX accent) RUDE, started w/u wouldn't explain charges per month, TOLD ME CALL BBB, also... Got his name in beginning Kim (MX accent also), I saved the pages (TotalAccessNetwork), says look up, yet No Way to? Me (I was soft-spoken) just asking questions I need answers to & told nothing to answer, Promo was over?

    I said then why do you send me a text every day, why do you have to get on the phone to the next customer? And why are you saying I've already signed up and joined, have you charge my credit card? Send promo over- click!

    What a bunch of turds~

    I want to turn them into someone if I can find that business and get a hold of a boss, why do they care or not who cares? But I do want to turn them into the BBB since I asked you twice and I just don't know how to get their information to do so?

    Finally found out: IF U WIN THE SWEEPSTAKES, they have shipped already paid for ($19.95 Plus you pay almost $200), JUST TO BE ENTERED?

    This is one of The Worst Company's I've ever come across & I am considered a senior citizen, now!

    What else can I do to STOP this company & its Total Disregard for potential/possible clients, Very rude, don't care... So I guess they're untouchable and findable!?!?

    argh 🤦🏼‍♀️🙏🏼

    Thanks to this web site I was saved! THANK YOU!

    I almost fell for it!

    It seemed to be a legit text from AMAZON saying I was this weekends lucky winner all I had to do is take a short survey! But before I hit the submit button I searched their name and found this site!

    Thanks Again for saving me!

    I took a survey by Trimet, Portland OR mass transit, after entering their legitimate website address in Google search, after being directed to a website to check my radio frequency id card balance. The survey offered the choice of an iphone, a Samsung Galaxy s10, or a $1,000 Walmart gift card which was claimed to have been already given out and no longer available. I selected the s10 and paid nearly $20 for shipping and handling. I returned to the Trimet website today and entered the same website address and everything was exactly the same except that there was no survey. A representative at Trimet said that they do not ever make such offers with their surveys.

    I received a text saying I was a winner of an IPhone 11 as a data user. I clicked on the link and it was from my TV Internet service provider Comcast/ Xfinity. All I had to do was take a

    Survey concerning their services. Since I had just called Comcast 2 days prior I thought it was legit. After completing and paying $19.73. I received an email which I thought was for verification. But it now stated I was entered into a drawing for the IPhone and the rest of the email was pushing vacations and

    other stuff. Wow. What a scam.

      How did you stop them from taking anymore money from your account?

  • October 30, 2019 at 10:39 AM by an anonymous user from: Waverly, Ohio, United States

    Thanks. I almost fell for this too, then thought I had better check it out first.

    I also received a Contest to get a Costco iPhone - "Pay only $19.73 for shipping" a few days later another deduction was made on my account in the amount of 76.87.

    Have filed with my credit union - in researching this mess there are several names - on the last deduction it is mstrmindhel and a long #.

    Also found the name of Total Access Network.

    I cancelled then received e-mail on 10/24/19 8:37 am From Superior Customer Services - says "you will receive a refund if a payment was made or avoid if no payment processed".

    Then on 10/24/19 @9: 04 am I received a recorded phone call from VTEC Solution - if you wish to cancel your subscription cancellation must be made within 48 hrs receiving this message 1-786-610-05287 Michael Giff (difficult to understand) customer relations manager.

    I checked the phone number and it shows scam so did not call.

    I filed a complaint with the FTC on 10/243- also.

    I do remember at some point I received something about health products and also free or reduced trips.

    There was also on 10/7/2019 a withdrawal of .16 International service assessment.

    Thank you for the information.

    They got me for $19.73 offering a new cell phone, which I know now that I will never get. Fortunately, my bank refused to pay the second installment of $96.00.
