I was a victim of this scam!

I was a victim of the Google Treasure Chest Scam. I can tell you from experience that they are unscrupulous con artists and my advice is "Stay Away from them". Do be very wary of any offers that toot the "Google" name as part of their offer as they are not connected with the "Google" search engine.
Please read about my experience with "Google Treasure Chest" so you will be better informed about how these scams work.

Government Actions

On April 24, 2009 the Texas Attorney General's Office announced charges for operating a fraudulent work-at-home scheme against Infusion Media Inc, GoogleTreasureChest.com, InternetIncomeInitiative.com, and Jonathan D. Eborn ("Defendants"), whose "GoogleMoneyTree.com" promised six-figure earnings for conducting specialized Google and Yahoo Internet searches. According to the state's enforcement action, GoogleMoneyTree failed to clearly inform purchasers that they had been enrolled in monthly memberships and had only seven days to cancel their trial membership. Purchasers who failed to cancel within seven days were automatically charged $82 on their credit card statements each month. In addition to the unexpected credit card charges, customer complaints obtained by state investigators indicate that GoogleMoneyTree failed to actually send the "free kit" and refused to honor customer refunds. The state is seeking an injunction, civil penalties of up to $20, 000 per violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, as well as restitution for purchasers.

Also it appears that there are many addresses for Google Treasure chest.
