Submission + - A scam for the Holidays (complaintsboard.com)

SubstormGuy writes: This is kind of an old story, but one worth repeating during the holidays when so many online-purchases are made. The link above is just one of many that talk about a very common scam. Many companies, such as Pizza Hut and Drugstore.com, sell credit card info to CompleteSavings.com, which then places a $12/month bill on your credit card forever! I discovered it recently as a result of a Pizza Hut purchase and I'll never buy from them again. Charges appear on your card with the number 1-800-826-1885. What I don't understand is why CompleteSavings.com is not shut down and why those corporations who sell credit card info to CompleteSavings.com are not sanctioned. Just google "complete savings scam" or "1-800-826-1885" and you will see how widespread the problem really is.
