You need to report them to your attorney general for all the violations listed above.
It seems they are doing business out of California, which is a state where advertising rentals and mortgages without a real estate license is illegal.
Add to that identity theft and fraud, and the Attorney general should have a good case on her hands.
do your part and report this scam company to the authorities. I think the FBI should get involved too.
I should have known better, and I am so angry at myself and at this company, New Line Equity.
I called and they told me on the phone that there was NO SUBSCRIPTION, just a $1.95 ONE TIME CHARGE to view their listings. So I stupidly gave them my credit card and personal information.
Shortly thereafter, I got an email from PayPay. I don't even have a Pay Pal Account! They created one for me using my personal information. The email from PayPal said that I am being charged an ongoing monthly subscription of $49.95. The email further said that if I want to cancel the subscription I need to log on to my PayPal account... I don't have a PayPal account - so I couldn't log on to cancel or dispute the charges!
And of course, the customer service phone numbers at New Line Equity are usually not answered.I did get through to someone once, but as expected, she said that she couldn't help me and gave me another number to call, which just continually goes to voicemail.
The company is full of CROOKS, LIARS, CHEATS.
I wish I had read the hundreds of reports online about their crooked ways before I gave them my credit card. I should have known better, but I was scammed.
So please, take my advice. I'm an intelligent, well schooled individual that should have known better... If I can get scammed, anyone can.
STAY AWAY FROM NEW LINE EQUITY. YOU ARE THROWING YOUR MONEY AWAY AND YOU WON'T GET IT BACK!!!
I'd say this is bad kharma, and not real.
