Consumer complaints are piling up against a Texas-based company, housed in the congressional district of Rep. Pete Sessions, for fraudulently taking out millions of dollars from the accounts of gullible Americans who want to know and improve their credit scores.
Based out of Dallas, Texas, Scoresense.com, a product of One Technologies LP, and offers a week-long "free service" of providing credit reports and identity theft protection. However, once a person provides the credit card information, the company goes on taking out money from the victim accounts.
Those who mistakenly give out their credit card details later feel "stupid."
Anita J Szabo aka “Zabe,” a family woman wrote on the Facebook site of Scoresense.com, "Score sense is the biggest rip off ever.. I had to cancel three times before they finally cancelled, stealing over $500 of my hard earned money! They are a ripoff scam, stealing from stupid people like me," said "Zabe."
Bryan M. Dixon who is a student of International Relations at University of South Carolina and lives in Columbia, South Carolina, warns, "Complete SCAM and RIP OFF!! ScoreSense WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY whatever you do, DO NOT utilize their services."
Cassie T. Beary who studies Studies Child Development Child and Adolescent Studies at Walden University, writes, "Thank you for continuing to refuse my request for cancellation of my account. I appreciate the fact that you stole the last bit of money I had on my card to feed my children. After three requests for cancellation, you are still taking money from me for a service that I DO NOT WANT. I guess the fact that my kids will be hungry for the rest of the week isn't your concern though, huh? You and your ilk are the worst kind of thieves, you masquerade as people who are trying to keep people safe from this exact kind of fraud, yet when someone no longer wants your services, you do everything in your power to continue to take money from them. ...."
Mellisa Dennis-Howell from Hallam, Pennsylvania, "Dear ScoreSense, Your company is sneaky, and money hungry. Your customer service is horrible. I sincerely hope a larger, better and more ethical company buys you, realizes that your company and employees are dirty and shuts you down."
On Wednesday, Martha N. Gabehart from Central City, Kentucky wrote, "Please terminate my account. I did not authorize this you owe me for four months that posted to my credit card."
Even this scribe became a prey of scoresense.com after signing up for a free credit report seven months ago and calling them back within the stipulated one-week time frame to cancel the subscription. To his horror when he went to check his account at a federal credit union he was informed scoresense was drawing out money from his account. and called the scoresense it turned out scoresense.com has been taking his money for the last seven months. After a number of protests calls, returned
Scoresense was floated by the Chang brother, Alex and Roger, in their main street apartment in San Francisco in 2000 with an initial investment of $1800. One of the two brother, Roger Chang, "was employed by the Central Intelligence Agency, where he worked with a top security clearance to develop cutting-ege technology tools,” according to the Dallas Business Journal.
The company now boasts it has net assets worth $200 million.
It is unclear how the company has evaded the watchful eyes of the Feds internet fraud protection system.
