I was watching tv yesterday and on my local news about a lady who had not checked her Chase account. I'm assuming it was a Chase credit account because normally you will get third party offers if you opt in when you sign up. According to this lady she was charged around 59.99 for a third party service called TLG just for me which is a company run by trilegiant. According to the lady a misterious charge appeared on her bill but she was not able to determine what the charge was for. She did her research and so she fought back against Trilegiant and Chase. Luckly she got her money back and Chase and Trilegiant. I believe now there has been a class action suit for this type of third party offers.
Anyway it reminded me of an incident I had 2 years ago with ticket masters. My girl friend wanted to purchase tickets through ticket master so I went ahead and purchased them for her.
To make this short a monthly bill of 20 dollars were withdrawn from my account which I later found out it was a third party company billing me for coupons which I was never aware of.
The moral of this story is make sure you keep track of your credit card statements and your bank account statements as well. The last thing you want is a third party company billing you for a service you dont need. If you want coupons get the news paper or go online its free.
Anyway not to bash Chase but they need to be more careful how they solicit third party offers to their customers. The same goes for Ticketmasters when they offer promotionals.
