I GOT MY MONEY BACK!
Update from my October 14, 2010 post. I did contact my credit card company and disputed the $275 charge. I faxed them a dispute letter explaining what REO Partners promised to do, and did not do. I enclosed a copy of my credit card statement showing the charge, the registration email from REO, the â€œpage not foundâ€ from REOâ€™s website, Rip Off report page, and pages from Truliaâ€™s website from agents scammed.
My credit card company was initially hesitant because the charge was over a year ago, and they have a 90 day dispute policy, but - once I explained the contract term was for 1 year, Aug. 2009 to Aug. 2010, and I had to give REO that 1 year to perform, and at the end of that 1 year REO had not performed, I am forced to dispute the charge 60 days after their non-performance and my unsuccessful attempts to contact REO for my refund. My credit card company understood that and reversed the charge in less than 30 days after my dispute. Try it and make sure you are very detailed with your reasoning and explanation.
