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.

Places to file complaints

Steps to Hit back at Google Treasure Chest

1. Go to http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2008/03/unauthorized_charges.html
At the top right hand corner there is a complaint button. Please file a complaint against GTC. If enough of us do this maybe someone will take notice and shut them down.

2. Go the http://tips.fbi.gov and file a complaint there.

3. File a complaint with the Attorney General of your state and also with the Attorney General of Utah where the refund base seems to be located.

4. File complaint with Better Business Bureau (they probably won’t help much but it leaves a bad record on GTC for other consumers to be aware of)
http://www.idahofalls.bbb.org (Utah BBB)

5. File complaint with Federal Trade Commission https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/

If you don’t do anything other than file with just one of the above options it might help to stop this scam. Remember “There is power in Numbers”
