Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Do you have a contract of any sort with empowernet?
That number belongs to Empower network, a get-rich-quick/work at home system advertised on the web. You can find out more about them here. Like all of these programs that promise you the moon, in most cases membershihp will cost you more than you'll actually make from the program. There are several scam reports on the web about them, and according to Scambook, the average person reports losses of over $7,000.
Have you signed up for their program, or are these just unauthorized charges? If you haven't signed up, you need to contact your credit card carrier and report the unauthorized charges and ask for a chargeback. If it's still the first or second billing period, you should get your money back after they investigate. More importantly, you would want to cancel your credit card and send them a new one.
If you did sign up with their program, then you want to cancel your membership before you contact your carrier. They apparently ask that instead of calling you write to***@******.*** for customer complaints.
This company is known to the Better Business Bureau and they have 107 complaints about them. Nevertheless, they believe the company does try to deal with consumer complaint, so they have given the company a B+ rating. You can find more contact information about them here and see if you can resolve this with the company. Read the section on Reviews and Complaints, which will tell you who to contact.
If contacting them doesn't solve your problem, notify the Better Business Bureau, your state attorney general and the Federal Trade Commission.
If you want to try and take them to Florida small claims court, you could sue them for the return of your money.
Yes. Start with your bank if this is unauthorized. That way you should get some money back if you have reported the withdrawals promptly after they happened. But you do want to also report these folks to make sure they get stopped.
