    I got scammed too. two years ago and only just found out. It's too late to claim through the bank. They took £720 in 9 irregular 79.99 payments. I'm trying to track them down myself but the 08445671020 is being answered by a company called Lead the horse.
    Does any one have any traces on the MGI guys.

    I became a member of 'Gourmet Society' recently and almost instantly began to regret it. I contacted 'Gourmet Society' to discontinue the automatic withdrawals from my account of an annual fee to remain a member. At this point I was advised, and expected to believe, that I cannot remove myself as I do not pay 'Gourmet Society'. To do this I have to contact 08445671020 which is a premium rate telephone number.
    I always understood that if the fault was with the item purchased then it was the responsibility of that company to put it right, in this case, the 'Gourmet Society'.
    Is there anyone out there who can tell me who I can contact to put this right?

    Answered some questions and was promised a £20.00 fuel voucher andsome money off vouchers. I did answer NO to all questions. Got a call from 02920364211 confirming the survey. I was to receive the £20.00 fuel voucher, even asking me what type of fuel, a surprise gift, lots of money off vouchers, a dine and get 50% off card and a magazine. I had to pay a £2.78 postage fee to receive it all. I am so glad I refused because I didn't read this until after I lost my temper at the manager who was obviously reading off a template and refused to send anything. I doubt the address and postcode is right either but I have just reported this scam to Action Fraud.

    I was called by this company saying that they would send out free vouchers if I just pay the cost of postage. I was dubious about giving out my bank details, but they reassured me that it was safe. I have just had £79.99 removed from my bank account making me overdrawn. I didn't think anything about the company but I should have listened to my gut instinct. Never again will I do this for anything free. If a company asks for your bank details over the phone then put the phone down, do not give them out. It's a waste of time and your hard earned money.

    I was phoned by an 02920 (Cardiff) landline number and they said they were an organisation called Motorpal who can save you money on car servicing. Offered to send a £10 voucher off petrol and a £20 rebate off a car service I'd already had as an introductory offer. The guy I spoke to (Elliott) sounded really plausible, and when I expressed doubts his supervisor came on the line and she also sounded quite genuine. I agreed to the £1 "contribution towards postage" on the 'Welcome Pack' but after reading messages here I phoned my bank to block any future payment requests to be on the safe side. Why are these dodgy companies allowed to operate and scam people?

    This company called me offering £20.00 in vouchers on fuel, It was not mentioned that I would have to send the vouchers off to the company to claim cash back it was mentioned that all vouchers are accepted in all fuel stations. I have the vouchers they don't look like they would honour them the look fake, This Company only wants your money and are operating a scam they also have you call them on a 08444 or 0843 no which they don’t explain the call charges. There is an alternate 0800 no which is 0800 6696480.

I am now having a headache with them as they still want to charge me for this as I refuse to pay this unauthorised charge even though the card is cancelled-can you believe it??.

    I got a call yesterday from Motorpal. The welsh lady was on phone to me for 25 mins, we discussed scam requests and I asked if this was similar to the money club where they give a £1 one month trial then take £99 out of your account, not a £1, then five months later take another £99 and so on. I told her I had reported The Money club to trading standards and got more than the money I paid out back using my bank to retrieve, so was not interested. Always use your bank to reclaim and report to trading standards or Rip off Britain.

    I was called on April this year by the company named above, they offered a magazine and money off vouchers. They offered to send out a pack to view for the cost if £1.00 which I agreed. However I did not receive this 'pack' and on May I noticed an amount if £80.00 taken from my bank account. I called said company enquiring about this in which they told me I never cancelled within 14 days of receiving the pack so this was yearly subscription. Didn't matter that I did not get the pack they had their back covered and wasn't goin to see one penny back. Then on August there was again another £80.00 taken frm my account, called and they td me it was money I owed as they did not have any records of my first payment. I had to get a bank statement and prove this by email before I would get my money back. This was 4 wks ago and iam still waiting for money to be out back into my account!!!

    Unsolicited call from Louis (very English accent)at Motor Pal who wanted to offer a service package for my Ford car (said he knew from a survey I had a Ford?) Offered a service deal for only £49.99 per year (to cheap to be true) and would cost only £1 for posting out the brochure. Wanted me to pay £1 by Credit or debit card - knew the this was likely to be a scam and said no way and hung-up. There is an automotive company of this name in Czechoslovakia but even their website might be part of this scam!
