    Read to end!!Beware- Bzshark piggybacks on Spokeo. The charge from Bzshark 8006 came from an account I started with Spokeo. The Bzshark account piggy backed on the Spokeo account. Apparently there was a screen that came up as I was creating the Spokeo account that the Customer Care representative says I must have approved. VERY SNEAKY!!! Call Spokeo Customer Care 1-888-906-0850 or Email CustomerCare@spokeo.com tell them that you did not approved or want the Bzshark account to piggy back on Spokeo and will make sure to never use Spokeo again and post rotten thing about them and Bzshark.
    The Spokeo rep was kind enough to speak to Bzshark on my behalf and reverse the charge so I would recommend calling before email.

    This BIZSHARK SPKO KEEPS SHOWING UP ON MY BANK STATEMENT AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP

    • Helen

      1St Contact your financial institution ASAP. Go online to your bank and change your log-in and password.Then contact your financial institution and report the “fraudulent and unauthorized charges” to your account. Tell your bank to freeze your debit/checking account. Contact SPOKEO.COM and, BZSHARK.COM and, more thank likely PHARMACY.COM and GROCERY.COM. Tell them you never requested, ordered or authorized any of them to charge your account for something (or product) you never ordered, requested or, ever received. Then contact your local Better Business Bureau and tell them what happened to you. You should also contact your local law enforcement and possibly even the FBI. Let SPOKEO,BZSHARK, GROCERY and, PHARMACY DOT COM respectively and, individually and make them aware of your intentions if they refuse to refund the fraudulent and unauthorized charges. Don’t hesitate to file REAL charges against them and report them to the FBI. It appears all these companies are linked and are sharing your sensitive financial files and information. Make damned sure your post every bit of what these sneaky bastards have done to you on every means you are able to. Utilize Facebook, Twitter and any other means you have to to spread the word about these sleazy rats. They deserve to be in prison for what they are doing. To lazy to get up and get a real job so they sit around all day stealing other peoples hard earned money because they’ve got nothing better to do with their time. Maybe PRISON can help to solve that problem for them. Go on Honey. Now you just toddle yourself over to your computer and do those assholes a favor. Help them get arrested and shown off in public in a Court of Law and handcuffed off to prison. That’ll keep them occupied for a while. = )

    I am being charged for this service $14.95 monthly. also I never signed up for any of this service and I I want a refund.and back my money

  8. Charles

    My bank account was debited for $14.95 today for the first time. The mixup occured on 3/17 when a family member signed up for a “name search” and was hooked into the “trial” subscription offer (should have read the fine print!).
    I took the advice of another complaint herein and called customer service. 888 906 0850. I could not have been treated with more courtesy by Phil, the telephone rep. He promised to take care of the matter, the evidence of his doing so appeared in my e-mail within 5 minutes! The bank charge will be reversed and the subscription cancelled.

    I called Bzshark and complained, was told that they picked me up through Spokeo and I must have clicked on something.!!!!!!!!! I told them I was a PI and investigating their scam, they told me they would refund immediately. I intend to make a complaint with Spokeo and suggest anyone else with Spokeo do the same.

  12. SP

    May 12 2014 Yep!! Me too. It is true that BZSHARK is part of spokeo. I just received a call from the fraud department from my credit card and they informed me of the suspicious charge. I called spokeo and they admitted that BZSHARK is part of their business background check. So, if you use spokeo for a background check on someone, BZSHARK automatically tags along and you get charged $14.95. Interesting thing here is that I had canceled my credit card and got my new one in the mail a couple of days ago and was just about to activate them today when fraud protection called me to alert me that a charge from BZSHARK was again on my credit card which had been canceled. I called spokeo and told them everything I have mentioned above and I informed them that this is fraud and I did not approve BZSHARK and to cancel any membership they have signed me up for and that I will not be recommending their service to anyone again. My credit company has marked them as fraudulent activity and I am being reimbursed. Make sure you check your statements all the time, I know it is time consuming but it is worth it. If there is a charge that you don’t recognize, call your credit card company and report it as fraud….so sorry guys that we have to experience fraudulent behavior like this. I think our stories would make a great Action News topic…..Good luck and God bless.

    Found this charge on my account.(14.95 SPK*BZSHARK). Called the 800 number they couldn’t even tell me my name, but yet charged my card. I have never done business with Spokeo either. I think they piggybacked a XBOX charge, because it was the only activity on that card. When I asked them they said they were not allowed to discuss who signed up and how. How do they continue to be allowed to have a merchant account when they trick people into ordering their product? Whatever it may be. I was forced to close my chase card. There needs to be a class action lawsuit and an investigation. This is the problem with the whole credit card system. The banks allow anyone and everyone to obtain merchant accounts and cry when they lose all this money to fraud. It’s sad some jerk is sitting on his yacht stealing other peoples money. If you had a good product you would not need to trick the general public into ordering.

    I, like many of you found out about Bizshark when they tacked a charge of US414.95 on my cc. Not knowing who this company is or authorising any charge I immediately contacted Spokeo by email and then my bank , who subsequently cancelled my card and agreed to investigate the incident.

    In the mean time I received an email back from Spokeo who advised me that Bizshark is powered by them and I may have clicked on something in relation to that organisation on the Spokeo website. I was also informed that the writer had cancelled the account and was seeking a full refund on my behalf. Maybe I did click on something and should have been more careful when providing cc details.

    Anyway, as a result I also received an email from Bizshark confirming that the account has been cancelled, so now it’s a waiting game to see if a full refund will be received. So far so good, as at least I now have acknowledgements of the funds being accessed and that they will be refunded.

    Even though I am not happy with the manner in which the funds were obtained they have at least been courteous and promptly acknowledged my request. I find that if one is courteous then normally things are actioned promptly and satisfaction is received.

    Should I not receive a refund then obviously there are other avenues that I can take action through but should I receive a refund and no further charges are incurred then I will be quite happy to acknowledge that also.

    I too discovered 3 charges on my credit card from BZSHARK in the amount of 14.95. I called BZSHARK and was told I had to have requested the service and they would only refund one charge. I read this site and called them back. I told them of my findings and that hundreds of people had experienced the same unauthorized charges. I received a refund of all charges. BZSHARK is a scam!! It should be shut down.

  16. Janice Bloom

    I was charged twice by BZSHARK. At least they have a fitting name “SHARK”…..I attempted to find out more at their 800 number but PHIL wanted my credit card info. Now why would they need that? They already HAVE IT……..I have contacted local law and will file a complaint with Idaho and California Attorney General. Shameful what people will stoop to for money. I want a full refund and will settle for nothing else.

  17. Robert Valdez

    I too am getting this charge for 14.95 a month and have no idea what’s up. After reading all the post and complaints on here how in the world is this shark place still in business

  18. Shirley

    I have never subscribed to SPK@BZSHARK. They are automatically with taking out $14.95. I am going to stop my credit card and whatever actions I need to take. I want my refund back.

    The FBI has an Internet Crime Complaint Center.

    Go there and fill out the complaint form.

    I live in Ireland and have also become a victim a victim of Spokeo,
    who have piggy backed my credit card details to their SECRET partner
    BZSHARK.
    They have been debiting my credit card since March 2014.
    How stupid of me not to have noticed before now.
    I have emailed them today, demanding an immediate refund of their illegal
    debits to my account.

    Have any of you actually received refunds from them?

    They hacked my credit card for 10 months at 14.95 each time. shame on me for not catching it earlier but I called bzshark at 1-800-649-1390 and had a talk with them. At first they were happy to refund my last three charges, but after threatening to go after them with fraud charges they agreed to send me a check for the rest of what they stole from us. They are a scam company and do not offer any kind of service to anyone. When I asked them what they do they kept referring back to spokeo. Horrible.

  25. Pidge

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PAGE CAN NOT GET YOUR MONEY BACK FOR YOU. CALL BIZSHARK AT 1-800-649-1390 AND CHEW *THEIR* HEADS OFF.

    That being said, I canceled my account with Bizshark in March. Got charged 14.95 for 5 months. Filed a complaint with the CC company, and called the 800 number for BS. The customer care person was really nice, but could only get me back three months of charges. Better than nothing, but I’m still angry.

    THEY DEDUCT YOUR ACCOUNT OF A SMALL AMOUNT, FOR EG, MY ACCOUNT WAS DEDUCTED 0.59P, IF YOU DO NOT NOTICE THIS THE NEXT MONTH THEY INCREASE IT TO $14.68…. THIS IS A COMPLETE RIP OFF, I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY GOT MY BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS FROM- JUST REPORTED MY MISSING FUNDS TO MY BANK..I ADVISE EVERYONE TO CONTACT YOUR BANK AND TRY GET YOUR MONEY BACK
    BEST OF LUCK FROM LONDOM

  27. Rosaline Kinyua

    Please help me to remove this thief from my accounts. Help me to recover my money.

  28. geko

    I contact my bank and reported it to EC3

    I was advised and i will contact local cybercrime unit Monday morning.

    Took the advice of other posters and called 1-800-649-1390 after noticing recurring charges for 10 months that we did not sign up for. Spoke with ‘Andree’ who was able to electronically reverse the most recent charges, and dispatch a paper check for the remaining balance. I understand it was not ‘Andree’s personal fault for this fraud – it is just his job to answer the phones. He was very respectful and the call was completed in less than 5 minutes.

    If you call, they will give your money back. This does NOT excuse this fraud, but it is good to at least get our money back.

    In summary, call and complain and CALMLY threaten to file fraud charges with your state attorney general – they will not hesitate to return the money.

    Hey Guys,
    Due to my bank I Discoverd that since april 2014, montly two amounts are taken from my credit card without my authorisation to Spokeo and Bzshark 14,95 and 19.95. I have never gave the order to do this. I have given my bank the order to stop all this payments and I want all my payments back. Maybe a case for the FBI?

  32. Karen Martin

    I’ve reported you to my cc company…adding on $14.95/month for I don’t know how long…but I’m going to look back and see. You are CROOKS!

  33. Colleen Smith

    Have been charging my credit card since 2013, 14.95 I only noticed today I’m very upset, i will be calling them in the morning this is a scam very upset!!

  34. Liz K.

    I found this mysterious charge listed on my checking account: POS DEBIT SPK*BIZSHARK 800-649-1390 CA. I called the 800-649-1390 number around 9:00 AM Central time. The call was picked up by a representative almost immediately; I told her that I had no idea why I was being billed, and wanted to cancel any future payments. The rep. explained that a few months ago, I used a “reverse look-up” phone number service and that I had [allegedly] agreed to some type of monthly subscription. I told the rep. that I was unaware of this, and she not only cancelled future payments, but refunded all payments for the past few months. I was very happy with the outcome, but WHAT A SCAM by Bizshark Spokeo!! Be aware of using any online “free” service for background checks or looking up phone numbers – they’re NOT free.

  35. H. Newton Malony

    I no longer want this service. Please cancel my subscription.

  36. Debbie Fisher

    I just noticed it on my bank statement…it comes directly out of my bank account. When I called the bank I was told it has been going on for a number of months. I know it wasn’t me because I haven’t used this card in almost a year. I want all the money refunded to me. I will be cancelling this card. I don’t know how they got the card number.
