Union Workers Credit Services Scam

If you receive a letter like this, beware! They simply take your 37 dollar “membership fee” and you’ll probably hear nothing ever again. I received this letter yesterday, and I live in the Pensacola, FL area.

This letter looks legit.. they even have a website: http://www.unionworkerscredit.com

But the fact that they asked for no information other than my signature raised a few flags. Their website is also littered with ads, not very professional.

Here is the letter. Click to enlarge:

I recieved the same letter. There was no phone number to call, so that’s what raised the flag. Good looking out,

Thanks Gina

#2 stupidazzgirl on 06.02.09 at 8:41 pm

i sent them the $37 and now i feel really stupid. i guess there’s nothing i can do

#3 Larry on 06.18.09 at 12:38 pm

I got the same letter on June 13th 2009. That is why it is so important to do some research from what ever the companies are. This is totally scam and that is why I’ve check under google search to see if others have some complaints. I hate scammer.

#4 Ray on 06.29.09 at 12:13 pm

I got the letter in june & a gut feeling said check it out thanx for our collective effort on helping others show this is a scam.

#5 KHIN on 07.18.09 at 7:22 pm

I also got the letter july and that is truly scam because of website & phone number, address are false.

#6 william on 08.14.09 at 3:04 pm

I to recieved a letter like this today,8-14-09. I thought it was probably a scam, so I will put it along with all my other ( fan-club ) mail, and use it this winter to start a fire in my fire place with. Thanks for the info. William

#7 annamaria on 08.25.09 at 3:12 pm

i feel so lucky googled and did’t fall for this!

#8 annamaria on 08.25.09 at 3:20 pm

got this letter today and it looked real good and said to myself there’s a catch, so i googled and i’m glad i did,i feel so lucky i googled and did’t fall for this scam!

#9 Deegoddess on 08.29.09 at 12:16 pm

Thanks for the heads up, I received this same exact letter on 08/29/09 and was kind of curious so I decided to google it, I knew it was some kind of scam asking for $37.00

#10 Omar on 09.12.09 at 9:58 pm

I fell fucking. Stupid

#11 Sarah on 09.29.09 at 1:40 pm

Yes, the no phone # and “for credit purchases from UWCS” was quite a bit off. How can this be tracked back to scammers, and what is the penalty? Seek and we shall see. Sorry for those who sent the money.

#12 Nick on 10.06.09 at 11:45 am

I just got this letter today 10/06/09 and I immediately knew it was bogus. I’ve had some bad luck staying current on my bills due to the economy and since my credit is worse than 95% of all other people in the United States, me getting a $10,000 credit line for actual credit is literally impossible. I would have better chances of buying $37 in powerball lotto tickets and winning 37 days in a row to pay for all my expenses. Does this company even report to a single credit bureau? If you lost the $37 it kinda sucks, but the one to really watch out for that actually got me is First Premier Bank. They offer a $250 credit line and on your first bill they charge you a $179 finance charge for extending you the credit. Plus monthly and annual fees that will put you well over your credit limit right away if you don’t pay. Then there’s the over the limit fees, high interest rates, the list goes on and on. Pretty good if you don’t mind paying triple digit interest rates (including fees). The way these companies operate they should be the ones owing you money. This type of stuff has gotta be illegal and since none of the important information from Union Workers Credit Services website is on the letter and they are unreachable by phone this is clearly construed as FRAUD according to the attorney I consulted.

#13 Claudia on 10.15.09 at 8:48 pm

Thank god I looked it up. It looked to good to be true till I realized there is no phone number on the letterhead and the back of the letter doesn’t have the legally required waivers.

Glad I looked on the web and saw all your comments before I sent them any money.

#14 Love&Lil on 10.16.09 at 4:44 pm

Thanks for the collective heads up. I just think it’s pretty cool that we all think enough to do our research. Does anyone want to start an anti-scam crime fighters superhero organization! (serious!)We could have outfits and everything. I got my letter today 10/16/2009, and was actually praying as i opened it on the toilet for God to lead me in my decision on what to do with a $10, 000 credit limit especially since me and my girl together have like a -3 credit score. So it was pretty awesome that he lead me to the computer to check it out before I sent them my little $37. That even more uncool because I could be using that money to pay for my Papa johns pizza when it comes. Seriously ..Thanks my superhero friends.

#15 Bill on 12.01.09 at 12:13 pm

Glad I looked this up and also very happy people like you take the time to post these FRAUD things. Some how if we pull together and enough bad word gets out we can put these people out of business. At least until the next one pops up. As the old saying goes BUYER BEWARE. Again thanks all.

#16 susan on 12.22.09 at 12:43 pm

i guess they are still scam-ing people. i just got my letter and i am so glad i looked to see if they were on the up and up. i am a single mom and a foster mom so every penny counts. thanks for all the info it really helped. FILE 13 IT IS.

#17 joe on 12.31.09 at 2:57 am

i just got the letter today 12/30/09

thanx to sites like yours it saved me money..
dont you have to be in a union to use union services???

i found more sites reporting this scam than ones prasing them

thank you for posting about them


#18 joe on 12.31.09 at 2:59 am

missouri is the new target for them

#19 Jasmine on 01.03.10 at 10:47 am

Those assholes got me for $37.00. I sould of known It was a scam. I Send my last $37.00 12/23/2009. Why was i so stupid? Union Workers Credit Union got me good. I really was waiting what was I thinking. I went to there web also and noticed there was no number. The web did look very bogus. I search on google website everyday. 37.00 from 100 people is 3,700 dam lot of free money. One question I do want to ask is. How many people are in debt with Capital One ?

#20 JOHN on 01.04.10 at 6:25 pm

I got mine today 01/04/2010 to good to be true. Never ever pay money for credit card.. If your PRE-APPROVED you would not be asked for money up front. Also offer set to expire 01/20/2010, I never applied nor did i ever ask for anything. SHRED IT AND FORGET IT!!!!!!!!

#21 mongo on 01.11.10 at 8:35 pm

got the same on 1/11/10 looked up the web site & saw this page & decided to check it out.thank you for posting all this you save us a lot of trouble.

#22 SERVPROsteve on 02.02.10 at 5:37 pm

Praise God!! I didnt send in the money. I am in the process of clearing up my old stuff & thought it would be a good start to do things rite! I Googled it & saw all this bad info. fOR THOSE OF YOU WHO LOST $$$ SORRY TO HERE THAT, BUT CARMA IS A BITCH

#23 CuriousGirl on 02.26.10 at 11:22 pm

I got this letter today. I am very skeptical about anyone telling me I’ve won, received, or being preapproved for anything as I very seldom apply for any credit. I started using the term, “If I don’t have the cash, I don’t need it.” I’m glad to know there are posting as these to help us with phone and mail deceptions. Thanks! Those of you who sent money, always remember to check things out before sending money. If you didn’t apply or never heard of the company, that should raise an eyebrow. Be safe!

#24 steve on 03.11.10 at 8:19 am

here is the phone number 214-424-6888
It’s still a scam

#25 Christy on 03.13.10 at 10:05 am

I am a single parent. I just received this letter yesterday after working a 12 hr shift. It seemed too good to be true. So I just got up this morning an google it. I was about to put all my debt on this card.. Well no chances of that happening. God bless everyone who comes across this scam. Bless them with more than 10,000.00!!!!!!!

#26 Jennifer J on 03.16.10 at 7:33 am

I knew this had to be a scam—had to look it up, just in case, and I think it’s GREAT that there are message boards like this to warn future people to not get suckered into this. Keep it up!

#27 Henri on 03.19.10 at 1:32 pm

As an answer to my prayers I received the same offer as the people reporting this scam. Also I have a very poor credit rating and, as being a Las Vegas local, I thought this was my lucky streak. I signed the activation form but I couldn’t mail the $37, because I needed my Last monies to buy groceries. So for the hell of it googled and …. rip….rip….there goes the invitation in shreds. People thank you for the reports.

#28 Jayla33 on 03.21.10 at 1:10 pm

Hi all! Well, it looks like most of us are pretty safe and still have our $37.00 thanks to sites like this and people like us who take the time to let others know to beware! The very first time i received this letter, i thought “oh wow!! Kewl…..” Then i kept looking at it, and I thought to myself…why would they want to issue me 10 grand in credit but want 37 bucks??? Makes no sense to me. Ok, threw it out. Then, I got another one and threw that one out without even opening it. Then, today, I received another one, so I opened it just to see if it was any different. Nope….still the same ole bull. But i did check out their site…and from that i learned that its credit to spend only from their magazine, and its also a lot of that cruise crap and vacation crap they send you to that involves you buying some vacation time share. Sooo….please people…I know it sounds good, but please beware of anything like this that comes to you either in the mail or email. Remember, you rarely get something like this without having to get more involved financially. And they send this stuff to those of us who have bad credit to begin with, and they know this ahead of time! Don’t think for a minute that they send this to those who have wonderful credit cause they know those people won’t even bother opening it. They figure us to be suckers cause we’re most likely hurting financially and can’t get anything without having to resort to using such low life deals.

I do feel very badly for those of you who sent in your 37 dollars. Please let this be a valuable lesson to you for the future.

Peace to all

#29 Stephg4040 on 03.23.10 at 1:17 pm

Heh…got mine today. I pretty much knew as soon as I read that they wanted me to send in money instead of billing it to the card after it’s issued. What a load! Thanks for the confirmation though.

#33 Kelly on 03.31.10 at 9:10 pm

Well just got a letter here 3-31-2010. I live in IL. Thought it was too good to be true also. Thank god for all these responses. I looked at the website and was like hmmm might work but knew to look into it further. Pretty sad. Karma is a B**** though!

#34 Jake on 04.01.10 at 7:07 pm

Got mine today. Their fee went up, they want $59 from me.

One way to get back at them: mail the envelope back to them. They will get charged by the Post Office for every envelope mailed back because it is business reply mail…so this is a way, if everyone does mails back, to drain some money from them, so don’t just throw the envelopes away, we can all do our part.

#35 Wendy on 04.02.10 at 10:03 pm

OMG!!!!!!! i got the same letter on 3/29/10 and i was surprised when I read it saying I was aprroved for a Platinum Card to good to be true, good thing I googled it up, I was about to send them $59 but it was funny to me that it didn’t have a number to call and get more info. I had a funny feeling about it, so I’m so glad I didn’t send them money and so happy I looked it up first before doing anything and regreting it later on. Haha and I was thinking of using this card for my wedding expenses no way. Now I know not to trust letters like this one. Thanks for the info……….

#36 elirivas on 04.06.10 at 1:41 pm

i got that letter today thanks to all of u i didntsent my money i just want to thank u : )

#37 Benni on 04.07.10 at 3:33 am

Thanks!! These people almost got me but something told me to do a little research and I seen this page under Union Workers Credit service “SCAM”.. How awful and very desperate these people are to come up with shiot like this to fool people by taking their money. They need to be ashamed of themselves

#38 M.G. King on 04.08.10 at 11:37 am

I am going to mail my “offer” back with a message like “Karma is a bitch, Scammer. Hope you get what you deserve!” Then I’m going to enclose it in their prepaid envelope and send it back. Everyone should do that in order to make them pay for the postage at least.

#39 Milly on 04.08.10 at 3:29 pm

I received my letter today and I’m glad I decided to research first. We should all send them the letter back with nothing in it or send them a phony check or money. Pay back is a ………..

#40 raymond on 04.13.10 at 6:17 pm

Thanks I just got a letter today , And after reading all your comments . The letter is in the trash .

#41 Joanna on 04.14.10 at 9:47 am

Thank you all for having this page and keeping it updated and from keeping me from getting scammed too.

I got this letter today and it sure did look legit.

#42 Brad Collins on 04.17.10 at 12:41 am

Good Morning & Greetings All!!!
I received the above letter as well 04/04/2010..
1. I figured it was a scam because I am pending Bankruptcy lol.
2. There was no contact information on this letter, and there website looks “home-made” !!!

#43 Mason on 04.27.10 at 1:58 pm

Got the same letter today. Thanx for the heads up!!

#44 Rachael on 04.28.10 at 5:34 pm

I received this letter today 4/28/10 and thank God I always check the validity of these types of letters! Dont fall for it!

#45 diamond on 05.03.10 at 2:09 pm

I too received this letter today on 5/3/10. This letter stated that I was pre-approved for a $10,000 credit limit. First of all a $10,000 credit limit with today’s ecomony. I don’t think so. This letter has scam all over it. No phone number and they have the nerve to send a pre-paid postage envelope so that you can send them $37.00. No way. We’re in a recession you’ve got to be kidding me. Thanks to everyone for setting up this website to alert people of this scam from this bogus company. This company should be turned over to the Better Business Bureau. And also reported to the Attorney General. People work to hard for their money to be ripped off by companies that prey on people that are trying to make a decent living. It’s bad when people have become dishonest and look for other people to fall into their scam to benefit themselves. Again thanks everyone for looking out for hard working people that are just trying to make it.

#46 jasmine mock on 05.05.10 at 12:38 pm

Thank you to everyone who posted if it wasnt for you they would of got me to. To everyone else if it sounds to good to be true google it, it probably is!!

#47 JINELLE on 05.07.10 at 9:58 am


#48 Becky on 05.07.10 at 1:20 pm

Hey I just recieved that letter today and decided to google it to make sure it was on the up and up. Needless to say I found this site thanks for the tip!!

#49 Kevin on 05.11.10 at 8:38 am

Hey, I just received this letter on 5/7/2010 asking for me to send $59.00. Knew immediately it was a scam, because no legitimate company would ask for the money in advance if they could just charge it to your card. Checked on google, just to make 100% sure. $59.00, hah! I will be sending my blank envelope back to them so they will at least have a double charge.

#50 deucerider on 05.12.10 at 5:12 pm

Don’t throw away the envelope. I got this also. What a scam. But what you have to do is drop the prepaid envelope in the mail empty and no return address. See if you throw it away, no harm no foul. But mail the envelope back to them and they get stuck with the payment by the post office. That is a payment they can not get out of. Stick it right back to them. Me 1 them 0. Enough of the envelopes returned empty, that could sting abit.

#51 chris on 05.13.10 at 6:59 pm

i got the same ting and i sent it back and tolled them to kiss my ass

#52 Betty on 05.20.10 at 5:22 pm

I am mailing my empty envelope back tomorrow. Serves them right to trying to fool people thinking it is a credit card.

#53 Bob on 05.28.10 at 10:23 am

I just received the letter myself, on 5/27/10, in Minnesota. I did a little checking on the address on the front of the envelope and the address in Texas is listed in a office Bldg. Credit Card Solutions/and Dallas Card Works. Plus it seems like there are several companies working together from this location. even Attorneys. They know what there doing, not to get hit by the Postal Inspector. love the idea of sending the empty envelope though. If you read the disclaimer on the bottom it states they are not affiliated with Visa or Mastercard. Which means it is not a credit card and the $37 is a processing fee for nothing. I too am glad for this site.

#54 Sarah on 05.28.10 at 1:36 pm

Received letter 05/28/10 in Vancouver, WA. It stunk from the first second I laid eyes on it.

I think I will return the envelope with a piece of paper that has “SCAM” written on it. :)

Im sure there are some that got excited and fell into this trap…

#55 Thomas Burr on 06.05.10 at 5:46 pm

I mailed out $37. I knew it was a scam when the order form asked for SS #, Drivers License #, D.O.B., and two personal references…. THE ORDER FORM asked for these. I called the 877# and it automatically hung up. I called the # on the website… same thing. I google mapped the company and I think they are part of Sweepstakes Clearinghouse. Crooks!

#56 Debra on 06.07.10 at 8:09 am

I got my letter a couple months ago. I put it to the side and then ran across it Friday and thought I would check it out via google, to my amazement I found all of these comments and I am so glad I googled it WOW I need my $37.00 and not for a scam. By the way we should not have to send money before we get a credit card.

#57 Doreen on 06.08.10 at 7:58 am

I too rec’d that letter. It did sound too good to be true. Glad I decided to Google them. I saved $37.00 and prevented being aggrevated. The Government needs to find these scammers. HELLO PEOPLE DONT BECOME A VICTIM TO THESE TERRORIST

#58 Linda Lou on 06.09.10 at 4:55 pm

I also recieved the same letter, and knew it was a scam at first glance. No one ask you to send in money on a credit card.Do send the envelope back with several sheets of paper to make the envelope heavy which will cost them over a 1.00 in postage. If you feel a need for revenge just write “FUCK YOU “on one of the pieces of paper.

#59 Linda Lou on 06.09.10 at 5:04 pm

If 40 or 50,000 people put weighted material in the envelope and mailed it back to them, that should put a serious dent in their SCAM.

#60 ellen on 06.14.10 at 2:27 pm

I know my credit is poor and that is why I was leery about the offer. Thanks for the information. I am glad I checked into it!

#61 AC2 on 06.17.10 at 2:27 pm

My mom got a letter from these scammers in the mail recently although the expiration date for their “offer” was more than two months ago! I bet they did that on purpose to increase the urgency of sending in the money for this fake offer.

Anyway, I did some research and I’m glad I stopped her from sending in her money for this scam. Thanks to this website too for the additional information! I filed a complaint with my state’s attorney general’s office and the BBB and hopefully this will get the word out and stop more people from potentially getting scammed.

#62 frankchapmen on 06.18.10 at 10:47 am

wowwwwwwwwwwww they almost got me to good thing i read this shit. $10,000 today in this economy gotta be bogus. shit i need my $37.00. thanks to google that we can read scam shit like this. damn i wish it was $10,000 i really need that money.i just got the letter today 6/18/2010 so please DO NOT EVEN TRY TO SEND THEM $37.00.

#63 jasmin on 06.19.10 at 3:15 pm

this is an outrage at least im not the only dummie that lost 37 hard earned dollars someone should do something about this .i sent my money order 3 weeks ago i just started to realize that i wont be recieving a a card in the mail….

#64 MIguel on 06.19.10 at 9:33 pm

I was about to get excited when I realized that the freaking letter was plain and simple, no legal agreements on the back. Only a signature needed to get this credit card, limited of $10.000. But I went to the website and it is so cheap and plain and no information. I am glad that I googled and found out that it’s a fraud. I am going to keep my $37 and buy myself something nice :)
Sounds like it that I have a work to do next 3 months, to trace route of this website, so I can find out who it’s from and hack their system and turn their ass to the federal agencies. And I get paid some money or some type of reward.
Good luck to those who don’t research before sending their money to a company not very well known.

#65 Rich T. on 06.20.10 at 4:19 pm

I too recieved this letter yesterday. And for some reason it looked a little familiar(maybe under a different heading though) from something I recieved a couple years back. keep your eyes open in your mail a couple weeks from now, because if it is what I think it is, it’s not necessarily a scam to beat you on your $37.00, but it also isn’t a low apr credit card either.

I believe it is a shopping catalog. You get a $10,000 line of credit with the low apr, that you can use only to buy stuff from their catalog.

What I did when I got this before and signed up for it, when the catalog and card came I got the phone number from that packet of info. and I called and raised Hell with the CSR there and I got my $37.00 back.

So for those of you that got beat on this so far, keep your fingers crossed that’s what it is, and you should be able to complain to them and get that refund!!!

#66 Sue on 06.21.10 at 12:17 pm

My friend just received a letter offering a credit line of $10,000 from these morons and in order to activate the account they required $37. SHAME ON YOU.

These thiefs have obviously spent a considerable amount of time and effort in developing this offensive little scam. SO I say, spend some time making a fake check and mail it in as is requested. I hope that when MY friends check arrives at their door the person opening it feels as small and worthless as the amount written will ACTUALLY be worth.

They do their evil deeds and pretend otherwise, but in the Court of the Lord, they shall be bound and gagged by thieves. ~Arthava Veda

#67 C-FRO on 06.23.10 at 12:51 pm

Just recieved the letter today (06/23/10)…. I have recieved this letter about every 3 months since 3/2009…. I have never sent any money or ever replied… I even started to recognize the envelope and marked several “return to sender”, however, they have changed the envelope to just a standard white envelope, but have added their name to the return address… I have opened the last 2-3 because I wanted to make sure the letter is not soliciting my information…. The letter is still the same as it appears above.

#68 BRANDON on 06.24.10 at 5:09 pm

Glad I looked on the web and saw all your comments before I sent them any money.

#69 jug on 06.24.10 at 6:43 pm

i just received the same letter today m
june 24th 2010 they are still trying to scam… as always i always check first on the web for scams…. BEWARE PEOPLE DONT FALL FOR IT

#70 Patricha on 06.25.10 at 2:57 pm

I too received this letter in the mail today. I myself decided to Google a search on it to see if it was a scam. And here you have it. My got told me to research. Very glad I did. I didn’t even realize there was no phone number until I read some of these posts.

#71 Martha on 06.26.10 at 3:09 pm

Thank You so much for saving me the us$37.00

#72 Jessikar on 06.26.10 at 3:34 pm

I got this letter yesterday, knew it was bullshit from the get-go. I decided, just for laughs, to look it up anyway. I’m glad I did. From what I see there are lots of people who got screwed. I’d love to know how people get away with this for so long? And how did they get my info? Kind of creepy, in my opinion.

#73 Adrian on 06.26.10 at 7:04 pm

Thanks for being here guys… they almost got me…

#74 Mamalissa on 06.29.10 at 8:11 am

@ Sue: Please don’t make up a fake check and send it to them. That is illegal and YOU could end up in jail. I do like the idea about sending a fat, heavy envelope back to them on their dime, though.

#75 Ladd on 06.29.10 at 12:39 pm

Heard about this on the radio, then got it in the mail yesterday. Had to run a Google scam on it and sure enough, you guys came up with proof! What a bunch of A-holes these guys are!

#76 Chas on 06.29.10 at 12:50 pm

I received that to good to be true offer as well and a red flag to me was the $37 dollars they wanted initially most credit cards will apply that fee to your credit card to make money off the interest . I thought this offer would help me to consolidate some bills but I guess I will continue to make due like the vast majority.

#77 Tara on 06.29.10 at 5:05 pm

Got the letter today and I am so glad that I clicked on this website. To the one who posted this website to inform the public…thank you, thank you, thank you. God bless you all.

#78 Jennifer on 06.30.10 at 12:16 pm

Recieved this letter today. 6-30-10. iv been getting a lot of scam mail lately and have been looking them all up. All scams. I feel like waisting a few cents on a stamp and mailing it back to them with a note that says “F*** off” theives. Is there no punishment for people who do this.?

#79 Richie on 06.30.10 at 12:38 pm

Using the self addressed stamped envelope they provided I sent them back a short Note on pink paper in red ink: GO TO JAIL, DO NOT COLLECT $37.00.

#80 sal on 07.03.10 at 5:45 am

Ha. I got the letter and immediately googled them…scam scam scam. So I’m returning the enveloped with an enclosed “FUCK YOU SCAMMERS, THIEVES” message.

#81 dil on 07.07.10 at 8:24 pm

ha thank you guys…i to got the letter, as the credit limit is 10000 at 5%apr i thought is a fraud one. and wen i googled it was shown to be scam…thank you …

#82 bellarose123 on 07.09.10 at 5:42 pm

I received one of these letters from these people about twice a year. I torn up the first ones…. But since I have started googling these companies, I decided to google this one and I am glad I did! Thank God there are sites where people take the time to post these scam artist. Thank God there is a google service too!

#83 Jonathan on 07.12.10 at 8:24 am

Decided to google, and the first thing that popped up was this “scam” website. I probably wouldn’t have sent the money anyway, but still very glad that someone took the time to make this website. Thank you very much!
I’m sure the people that invented this scam, read this thread occasionally. So I’d like to tell you scammers that I hope you enjoy the money you’re making now; because karma is going to kick your ass! That is all.

#84 LN1017 on 07.14.10 at 3:50 pm

They’re professional THEIVE …Thanks god that I have a good sence to smell some fishyyyy case like this …Thanks guys I almost give my $37 away…

#85 Rodd on 07.14.10 at 8:22 pm

I got the same letter today. Not even for a second I thought of sending these a-holes $37. It’s hard to believe these people have been scamming sending the same lettter for over a year and no one has been able to shut them down. I knew it it was a scam but wanted to goggle it to see how many people fell for it. I even wonder if the address in Dallas really exists.

#86 troy on 07.17.10 at 7:46 am

these people should be shut down. thanks for the info!

#87 Elaine on 07.23.10 at 10:30 am

AZ is the new target for July 2010 - so glad I googled and appreciate the info. Scammers should be shot! So many people without jobs are desperate for $$ right now, it’s really sad that jerks set up scams like this UWCS.

#88 pat on 07.23.10 at 11:58 am

I got my letter today 7/23/10. Sent the letter back to them in their own envelope with a big F–k OFF on the letter. Sorry to see that some have fell for it, but that’s life.

#89 Lisa B on 07.24.10 at 4:33 pm

Thank you for posting this message. I received my letter today, 7-24-2010. First, I wanted to research it before I make my decision. I’m glad I did! Thanks again for helping out there get these scammers off our backs.

#90 Russ on 07.27.10 at 8:51 am

Only mag subs have my name in this format. Its not my legal name. A legit credit would have your legal name. Now I know how these scamers got my info.

#91 concerned daughter on 07.27.10 at 4:11 pm

Thank you kind folks for sharing your experiences-even the mistakes. Thanks to you I was able to save my mom from making a bad choice. Someone needs to stop these people. My mom received her letter on 7/10/10 in FL. They are playing a very dangerous game with folks that are hurting in these financially unstable economic times. I will be making contacts in my state to try to put a stop to this. Thanks again to you and for this website.

#92 LookBeforeYouLeap on 07.27.10 at 6:00 pm

I received the letter today. It didn’t have any telephone number, just sign and send $37. I knew I couldn’t get a $10,000 credit limit on this planet. The offer expires 8/4/10. They didn’t get my money!

#93 Tiph on 07.28.10 at 7:41 am

Thank you all for your posts. I got the same letter 7/28/10 I thought long and hard on it and then I thought to google it and O.M.G I see all of you, thank you for your time to inform us of these S.O.B’s

#94 Bhuppu on 07.29.10 at 11:53 am

i also got it today. and i just returned back the empty business reply mail to them. so that they get charged.

#95 Kenneth Valentino on 07.31.10 at 7:23 am

But how do they know of any Union affiliations a recipient of the “offer” has? It was obviously a fraud from the moment I saw the letter, but it was just as wrong for someone to have provided this company with my name, address, etc. Submitted July 31, 2010

#96 Hannah on 08.02.10 at 1:20 pm

I just relieved this letter and I was so excited that one credit card company was going to let me have a credit card but none of the credit cards I have applied for wanted a fee!?! So it raised some flags for me so I started doing some research. This was the first website I found and I’m glad I found it! People will do some stupid things to make a buck! but they will not get it out of me! SO GLAD I FOUND THIS WEBSITE!

#97 Debbie on 08.02.10 at 6:38 pm

thans so much I just got this letter, I knew something was wrong when there was no phone number, to call, just a email. What business does not have a phone number? Wow they getting crazy out there. so thanks for you guys head up. Is there anything we can do to stop them, maybe we need to send out a letter with all this uinforamtion warning other people.

#98 Lisa on 08.03.10 at 11:23 am

Just received that very letter yesterday. So glad I checked it out 1st. Thank you all for the heads up! ( Wish I thought of doing what Bhuppu did…)

#99 Jerald D Montgomery on 08.04.10 at 1:20 pm

Wow, I just got the same letter. I almost fell for it. I put it in the mail box and something just clicked. So I said let me google it and see want comes up. Thank god I checked on this. Thank you all

#100 sarah on 08.04.10 at 1:32 pm

I threw away the first letter I received from Union Workers Credit Services Inc in June 2010 and NOW I just received another letter from them 8/3/2010, I Just wanted to keep people aware that the scam is still out there and they are still sending out letters.

#101 k kissel on 08.04.10 at 10:16 pm

i just got the letter today - i thought it was hoaky? thanx

#102 Karen on 08.05.10 at 5:55 pm

I received a letter from this people twice. I received the first letter around February of 2010. At that time I sent them $37 thinking this was a legitimate credit card company. I never heard back from them after sending the money. Luckily, I was smart enough and sent them money order instead of a personal check. They most likely would go into my checking account and steal money. On August 2, 2010 I received a second letter from them. I went to the website to check on this people and saw this website. I am glad this exist and hopefully more people would check on this before sending any money to this stupid people. I am now sending a “nice” letter to them.

#104 Amanda Thomas on 08.06.10 at 7:16 am

I got the same letter yesterday and what made me do a little more research was the fact that it had no information really on the letter and the fact that it did not contain a phone number at all. At first I thought it was legit because I am part of a union from work, but I’m glad that when I googled the “company” I found out more of what it was…. a scam. Thank ya’ll!!

#105 G on 08.07.10 at 11:32 am

I continue to get these offers and I, too, thought it was too good to be true. So, I googled it for scams and sure enough, so many complaints about this scam!!! Thanks for Google. It helps in so many ways….

#106 julie on 08.09.10 at 3:02 pm

I just received their letter today. I knew it had to be a scam, so I looked it up, got this site and sure enough, they are not legit.

#107 julie on 08.09.10 at 3:05 pm

Has anyone reported them to the Better Business Bureau???

#108 Vicki on 08.09.10 at 6:09 pm

To all the people who look on the web and leave these messages….. THANK YOU!!!!!. Unfortunately, this has become a greedy society of humans so I check everything like this that I receive. I send my “sorries” to those that sent the money. Received my letter Aug. 9, 2010. And thanks Google for being there for those of us who would fall victim.

#109 kmn on 08.12.10 at 2:51 pm

The letter from UWCS has several red flags: the lack of a phone number, no required credit information, many exclamation marks, bad grammar and language usage.
I intend to turn this letter over to the Postal Service for investigation of mail fraud.

#110 suga mac on 08.17.10 at 8:47 pm

lol it says you have to buy from them in the letter. it also says you have to buy something before they give u ur money back lmao woooooow

#111 Ingrid on 08.18.10 at 12:26 pm

I figured this was a joke my credit is shot since I have been unemployed for two years. I always Google any type of offer I receive in the mail, or read the fine print. Better to be safe than sorry.

#112 heem on 08.18.10 at 5:24 pm

Pussys tried 2 get me but they didn’t thanks 2 y’all
Thanks a lot

#113 candy steinmacher on 08.20.10 at 8:32 am

I too got this letter, and decided to look for complaints. Thought is was a scam, and for all of you Orchard Bank is
too. I got taken in by them for 37.00 in the spring. Then they sent a letter saying it was 40.00 for a visa card. Please do no fall for these scams. They both should be

#114 daniel on 08.20.10 at 4:48 pm

Those assholes didn’t get me this time ..I almost had a guy get me on craigs list he found the home foresale on a web site made an yahoo account using the home owners name as the username and posted it for rent on craigslist emailing him at the yahoo acoount name he was supposenly in nigeria with his family and wanted no deposit but seven hundred for rent upfront and then he would send me keys be careful there out there

#115 Betty on 08.23.10 at 3:52 pm

I just got this EXACT letter 2 days ago. I also was suspicious because it just looked too good to be true so I started investigating and found THIS website !!! Thank you everyone who commented !! You saved me $37.00 and a bright red face !!!! I will also turn this letter into the post office for investigation of mail fraud ! SOMEONE owns that PO box we send the money to !!! Thank you GOOGLE !!! Most of all Thank you JESUS !! Once again You had my back :)

#116 Better now than never on 08.28.10 at 7:51 pm

I recieved this letter and passed it off until I needed credit…. Thanks for this posting saved me some hassle. Sorry to those who got into it.

#117 Smart A on 08.28.10 at 10:41 pm

Tape the REPLY Envelope to a heavy box of whatever you don’t want, and mail it.

#118 Jessce on 08.31.10 at 11:24 am

Indiana on 8/31/2010. These mooches are a nationwide menace to society. Criminals should be held accountable. If I went door to door all across the US scamming folks at every third house for $37, I would be arrested and charged with millions of crimes against millions of victims. I didn’t fall for it but many of us did. Why is this legal because the scam is sent in the form of a business letter? If it was a face-to-face encounter, something could be done. Robbery is robbery no matter how it plays out.

#119 Shahriar on 08.31.10 at 12:04 pm

I just got the same letter today.Thank you all for the heads up and also thanks google

#120 monica c. lopez on 08.31.10 at 1:16 pm

I knew it was a scam. To good to be true! Letter didn’t have a telephone number that’s illegal.

#121 trace on 08.31.10 at 5:35 pm

curious what is the common factor between us all? anyone else, ebay, infowars, prison pllanet tv?

#122 alice womack on 09.02.10 at 7:39 am

wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!! i just received the letter yesterday…i knew it sounded to good to be true.thanks

#123 Jeff on 09.09.10 at 6:52 am

I too got the same letter, but something felt funny when it said I was pre-approved and knowing what the last few years has done to my credit; something smelled fishy. Thank you all for creating this “scam” website and alerting all other potential victims.

#124 james on 09.09.10 at 12:42 pm

thank you for creating this website to warn all of us of this internet and mail fraud scam. Will the FBI please investigate and close this operation down? No, probably not, as they will not consider this as important enough for their “highly trained field agents”. I can just imagine how many folks have been scammed by this ………………..may the fleas of a thousand camels infest the armpits of those criminals at union workers credit services!

#125 Sondra Whinery on 09.15.10 at 12:03 pm

i recieved this letter today too. Since my husband is union I at first thought about sending in the 37.00 but something told me to check it out first! Glad i did they are scammers

#126 Miss Stasha on 09.17.10 at 6:39 pm

I received this today and the letter id dated 10-6-10. how can they keep doing this and not get busted and shut down?

#127 johnjohn on 09.24.10 at 9:56 am

damn they almost got thank u so much cant afford to lose 37 right . thanks again lol

#128 Tracy on 10.04.10 at 11:10 am

Yep, Got my letter today. Knew it was BS, but Googled it anyway. Boom! BS Confirmed. I signed the letter “Youra Dumbass” and mailed it back to them postage paid. What can I say…I hate BS.

#129 Kritine on 10.05.10 at 11:46 am

I just got this letter in the mail to 10/05/10 and it really though me off because lately we’ve gotten a lot of credit card offers. I usually open them just to get the fake card out to give to my three year old to play with and i will glance over the info. Well today I realized that there was no real info involved. A automatic 10,000 credit limit, yeah right. And then if you read the fine print your $37 is only refundable AFTER you spend money on your credit card? And thier approval Number has commas inbetween instead of dashes or just spaces. I was so glad when I googled it this was the second website to pop up.

#130 Tony R. on 10.05.10 at 9:28 pm

Thanks every1 for the info… saved me 37.00 it was funny though just thought i would google and found ya’ll .. thanks again.

#131 Donald Prince on 10.06.10 at 11:08 am

Yes, this is a scam. I had to check the net to find out for sure. I had a gut feeling it was before looking into it. In business, if it sounds too good- too be true it most likely is. That especially accounts for credit cards w/ a 10,000 credit limit.

#132 Will29 on 10.06.10 at 9:25 pm

Same scam still going on where’s IG on this one.

#133 Rann on 10.07.10 at 9:20 am

Thanks to all of u…..I c its a scam THANKS. I too will just send the envelope back and make them pay remailing fee haha on them.

#134 Brian on 10.07.10 at 3:56 pm

Just got this in the mail today. Amazing that years after being known to be frauders they are still around?! How does that work?

I say we call the Post Office that supplies their P.O. Box and let them know they are assisting scammers! Maybe let local police of the city know!

#135 AJ on 10.07.10 at 7:34 pm

I received this letter yesterday, and to my amaze I saw $10000 platinum credit card, did not think it could be a scam at all as the letter looks genuine, So I went into their website(http://www.unionworkerscreditservices.com) and they have a place holder to also put the approval number - keyed in my approval number and it works. Thankfully I did googling before sending money, Thanks to all of you for leaving your experiences. The point is that we not only give $37 through a check but also expose our bank account number, routing number etc by sending the check to the scammers. These needs to be reported and stopped immediately.

#136 Tiapat58 on 10.08.10 at 4:22 pm

I, too, just received this bogus letter. Thanks to all who have posted their comments so others will read and be forewarned not to buy into this SCAM!!! Shame on these individuals who prey on the unsuspecting. There is a special place set aside in Hell for these scammers!!

#137 Kathleen on 10.11.10 at 9:42 am

Thanks I thought it was a scam.

#138 Patrick Marcus Tyrael on 10.13.10 at 9:10 pm

Got this letter today… $10,000 credit limit with 5% APR so throw it into garbage… Googling this Union Credit Workers just for my own curiosity and thank god i am not one of the victims… I’m so sorry for those who paid $37

#139 George on 10.18.10 at 1:47 pm

Received such a letter on 10/18/2010, thanks for the posts.As I goggled it and found this site.

#140 Mary Ann on 10.18.10 at 2:01 pm

I received the same letter 10/18/2010. Sure glad I Googled it. Thanks everyone.

#141 zenthay2010 on 10.18.10 at 6:41 pm

I know that this CC offer is a bogus ad so I decided to check it out before I sent $37.00 that I don’t have so don’t fall prey for this type of scams. I will not trust a company that doesn’t have a customers service phone number and it does work.

#142 MJ on 10.18.10 at 8:50 pm

I submitted this letter and info to the Division of Consumer Affairs who in turn forwarded it to the Attorney General’s office in Austin,TX. Today I received a letter from that agency in Austin & Dallas, TX advising they will review the information.

#143 vdubb333 on 10.19.10 at 1:22 pm

got this letter in the mail on 10/18/10 in West Virginia, and thought wow!..10,000 dollars credit…! and then i immediately knew it was a scam for all the same reasons..no phone # and non refundable fee until 1st purchase..so glad i looked it up to see if it was a scam, these people really need to be caught and thrown under the damn jail!

#144 Dennis on 10.19.10 at 2:37 pm

I have just scanned the comments about this letter (which I received a copy of yesterday). I did not see any comment that brought up the fact that this does not advertise getting a bank credit card. They talk about a “PLATINUM Card Membership.” The letter states, “Credit amount… is exclusively applicable for credit purchases from UWCS.” I suspect the real scam is they will sell you merchandise at high prices and with large shipping and handling fees. I doubt if it is against the law to charge prices which are high compared to other retailers. For sure, do not fall for this offer.

#145 dean on 10.19.10 at 3:14 pm


#146 G~for get none here on 10.20.10 at 4:20 am

They are still sending the letter. I received the letter yesterday. I knew it was not legit, so I did what I recommend everyone do when they receive trash that looks like it’s real…google it immediately.

#147 Kellee on 10.20.10 at 2:21 pm

I got this letter in the mail today (10/20/10) and I want to know how they even got my name. *sigh* I knew it was crap, but I decided to look it up anyway. You are awesome!

#148 Adrienne on 10.22.10 at 9:00 am

Thank you so much because I recieved the letter too, and I was ready to give them my $37.00. I thought it could have been something like fingerhut, or rent-a-center, but now that I see all your comments, I really appreciate the consumers coming forth and warning me about this scam. Thanks again!

#149 greta on 10.22.10 at 9:16 pm

Thanks for posting this… I’m glad for the internet and I’m so happy I googled it. I almost fell for this scam… this was going to be my fist credit card and I have been applying everywhere. I’m so glad I didn’t fall for it. I thought I had gotten lucky and this was for real. Thanks again.

#150 mike on 10.23.10 at 11:28 am

well i shuold have google it 2 iam out 37 bucks also i hate scams i hate fake freaking people they took my 37 bucks

#151 mike on 10.23.10 at 11:29 am

#152 Melody on 10.23.10 at 12:33 pm

Something just didn’t seem right to me so i thought i would do some research myself. I received my letter today 10-22-10. Sounded to good to be true. Thanks to Google. =)

#153 Melissa on 10.24.10 at 2:07 pm

Hey,thanks to all.Im glad I looked this up.We dont have extra money to throw at these crooks.Something should be done about this.But WHAT?!!

#154 Melissa on 10.24.10 at 2:23 pm

Hey thanks to all.Im glad I looked this up.The letter I recieved was the same.We dont even have 37.00! Where do these people get our stuff?FBI should get involved.

#155 Joyce on 10.30.10 at 11:18 am

Received the same letter on 10/29/10. Glad I checked it out.

#156 Bipin on 11.01.10 at 3:19 pm

Thank God, I looked it up too.. For sure, it’s a scam.. I think they offer this kind of letters to those who are denied the credit cards many times or looking for the credit..

#157 Rose on 11.02.10 at 1:47 pm

I received this letter today, I always check, actually 2 things seemed off. First of all, no application, second, my credit is less than perfect right now. Who in their right mind would offer some one with my credit score $10,000?

#158 Lourdes on 11.03.10 at 8:10 am

on august 23, 2010 I send this people a $37.00 dollar check for a credit card. There no phone # to call or anything can some one do something about this. I want my money back o my credit card. please some one please do something.

#159 Thankful Girl on 11.03.10 at 11:53 am

I just received this letter on November 3, 2010. They are still sending out letters apparently.

#160 Honey on 11.03.10 at 4:17 pm

Hi thanks to everybody. I just got the same type of letter today (03-Nov-2010), I checked in google.
1). I dont know how these people are get our personal details?
2). How these people are running this big scam till this long period?

#161 Brian on 11.03.10 at 4:57 pm

Just got the letter today and figured I better google these ass hats….Thanks to everyone who left there experiences from these scammers!

#162 Rob on 11.04.10 at 11:46 am

Got my letter in the mail 11/4/10 and decided to use Google search to check everything out, and am I ever glad I did. Once I saw the word SCAM affiliated with this group I knew it was a wise decision to do a little research before sending any $. Thanks for being a watchdog and exposing this group for the fraud they are. Job well done!

#163 Patty on 11.04.10 at 3:02 pm

I just received this letter as well. $10,000.00 at 5% to good to be true requesting nothing at all from me but the $37.00. Sure glad that I checked this out. FBI dose need to be notified.Hope they nail them real good.

#164 Ken B. on 11.06.10 at 7:35 am

I got this in the mail today (11-6-10) And i knew right away it was bogus. My credit is average so 10,000 credit limit seemed much. Plus there was no mastercard or visa logo.
So i promptly drew a dick on the application and wrote them the following message on the back.

“Dear scammers,

Anyone dumb enough to give me a 10,000 dollar credit limit is either full of s–t or an idiot. You will $37 from me the day a golden monkey flies out of my @ss”

I also threw the tinfoil lid to the yogurt i am now eating into the envelope.
I hope these guys get raped by congo gorillas and contract full blown aids.

#165 Nancy on 11.06.10 at 7:17 pm

THIEVES! I immediately went to the USPS Postal Inspection website and reported this. I am also going to the BBB and report it there. This phony-ass company needs to be shut down!!! They need to take the website OFF the net. Mail your pre-paid envelope back stuffed with religious tracts and make it heavy! These asswipes need to be stopped! I can’t believe they have gotten away with this for so long!!!!

#166 zx6r on 11.06.10 at 10:24 pm

i just got the letter too,got mad happy at first i even told my girlfriend that im getting a car :(
thanks for heads up appreciate it

#167 Osker on 11.07.10 at 1:24 pm

Who ever set up this blog please forward all our grievances to the proper authorities. I already done my due diligence with one like this, where one of them actually writes out a check for several hundreds of dollars for you to keep but in reality they will scam you once they get into your bank’s system and later wipe you clean. BEWARE OF THESE AND MORE OF THESE TO COME IN THE FUTURE. Do not let them get into your bank’s system.

#168 tanya on 11.09.10 at 9:52 pm

FKERS @$$HOLES got us .. my hubby sent them $37 !!

#169 Warren Fields on 11.10.10 at 6:46 pm

I’m a business owner and these kind of things just drive me nuts. Business is so hard as it is… and these people make an already horrible economy worse. I received the same b.s. letter today and just can’t believe they are still pulling the same scam. I really hope they get stopped!

#170 Lola B on 11.13.10 at 12:39 pm

I just got this letter today offering me 10k credit for $37.00. Thanks to many circumstances my credit stinks now so I knew this had to be a scam. In small letters it also says not affiliated with Visa or Mastercard?? So I guess you just can use it to buy their junk

#171 T.K on 11.14.10 at 11:28 am

They are still at it. Got the same letter in the mail today (11.13.2010) here in Florida. I’m so HAPPY I did my homework first! Thanks All!!

Thank you for this information,I almost fall for it.This guyz are stupid,Government should do something about this scam going around.The postal agency should not allow themself to be used to fraud innocent poor citizen,$37 is a big cool oney in this recession period

#173 charleegirl on 11.15.10 at 12:50 pm

I had this offer before, and never considered the offer til this year. I decided to check out the website, and of course it was too good to be honest. And if Im not mistaken, it says to shop from the credit provider… lol evil geniuses.

#174 john on 11.16.10 at 12:39 pm

Got this letter over the summer sent them 37 dollars and never herd back , until my daughter came over and googled the name and found a number which is also fake! only thought it legit because of the logo for a real union “teamsters” rediculous!!!

#175 Jaime on 11.16.10 at 1:54 pm

Thank’s for the head’s up! these guy’s are still at it. Don’t let them take your money.

#176 Roberta on 11.16.10 at 4:10 pm

OMG…Unemployed single mother of three…vehicle is to be reposed anyday now I thought this was the answer to my prayers!! It did cross my mind that my credit is shot out now who would want to give me this amount of money??? In all honesty I saw a light at the end of a very long dark tunnel for a moment…I even smiled…my son asked mom did you get a job your smiling??? I had to tell him NO, told him its you that makes me smile!!!! I am so glad I googled this I had my last fourty dollars in my hand and was ready to mail it out….Thank you Thank you Thank you for this site!!!!

#177 P.J. on 11.17.10 at 1:13 am

I just got this letter in the mail today. As soon as I read it it seemed very fishy to me. I thiught about sending them the $37 for a quick second. Then I thought “Let me check them out first”. Thanks to all the post on here I’m not giving them sh!t. I guess I will send back the enevolpe and write “SCAM” on it. THANKS AGAIN!!

#178 Jennifer on 11.18.10 at 11:41 pm

It’s so funny because I got this in the mail today and I have a habit of just checking companies automatically these days because there are so many scams out there. I started to type the name in Google and it came up “Union Workers Credit Services scam”. I thougt that was so funny cause why would you need to look any further. It’s good that people are watching out these days. Thanks

#179 HRS on 11.19.10 at 12:15 pm

Guess I fell 4 this at 37.00 and two emails with NO REPLY BACK. BUT OF COURSE THE CHECK WAS CASHED. Sooner or later it will catch up with them.
I usually Google or Ask.com first. This time I did not as the letter looked somewhat ok and knowing I worked for a company that was connected to union. Will OOPS I goofed.

#180 kallie on 11.19.10 at 1:43 pm

It now November 2010and this letter was sent to me.I knew it was a scam because I’m unable to get that amount for credit. LOL!!! However, its odd that know one of authority has investigated this. Please do not fall for the scam. They know people are hurting for money in this economy and this is why they are doing this.

#181 rebekah on 11.22.10 at 12:07 pm

I saw this site first and I am glad- but i decided to look at their site out of curiosity. Did anyone read the FAQ??? It isnt even a credit card!!! They give you a CATALOG of merchandise, thats all you can use it for!!!! WOW! THis is quite the scam.

#182 Amber on 11.22.10 at 12:36 pm

I also got the same letter today 11/22/2010 as I read this letter I thought man this is awesome because due to California cuting cal works stage 3 child care our family is having a hard time but I had a feeling there was something wrong with it and thanks to you all I didnt get screwed so thank you that $37 can pay a part of our PGE so thanks

#183 Sam T on 11.23.10 at 1:47 pm

My wife and I are grateful for this blog. We’re going to take this in to the USPS or the FBI. or both.

#184 rocky on 11.23.10 at 8:18 pm

thanks guyz… these people stink… Good to see a page hosted for this… Got the same shit… And flushed it royaly…

#185 Logical American on 11.23.10 at 11:34 pm

This is exactly what you will see more of if the Tea Party Republicans get enough Americans to believe that “small government” is the right way. They are for small government because they don’t want regulations to mess up their ability to scam people out of their money. If you want the slime balls to have less restrictions on what they can do and how they can take advantage of more people then vote Republican. If you think that government has a real purpose and part of that is standing up for the average guy or girl then vote democrat.

Wake up people, the republicans are selling out this great country to the highest bidders and getting people to vote against their best interest under the guise of patriotism. Please do not let them take this country back to the pre 60’s mind set. Don’t let fear win out over truth and common sense.

As for this “Union Workers Credit Services” I hope that you all remember the evil things you are doing now when its time to settle your accounts with your maker.

#186 Jenna on 11.24.10 at 9:33 pm

This company does not claim to give you a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc. It plainly states you will get a Platinum Card with a 10,000.00 credit limit toward all credit purchases from CREDIT PROVIDER, which is UWCS. It is a mail order catalogue business.

#187 Jen on 11.25.10 at 3:30 pm

Hey I personally don’t have anything bad to say about the company. I was a member a couple of years ago and I got my bedroom set a countertop dishwasher and a few other things and my payments were under $100 per month. The stuff was very sturdy and it arrived when they said it would and I still use the stuff daily and have had no problems. I am sorry to hear that anyone has had problems with the company but just wanted to share my exp. with them.

#188 Rr on 11.27.10 at 2:52 pm

I just want to know how they got my full name and address!!! How do you report this scam and to whom?

#189 pdheit on 11.27.10 at 3:28 pm

thanks for the warning, i hope everyone sees this this is my 4th letter hope the envelopes & postage breaks them

#190 Bowgreii on 11.27.10 at 4:31 pm

These cats almost took me for a ride… what’s sick about is that I imagine a lot of people out there (like myself) look at a 10k credit line and think; ‘Oh, wow! This would really help!’ But once again, life teaches us that if something sounds too good to be true… odds are, it is. I’m a little miffed that they had my personal info… at least I listened to the little voice in my head urging caution before going ahead and sending almost $40 that could be put to MUCH better use. Hadn’t thought of the business reply thingie… I’ll torch the offer letter but send their envelope back to ‘em. I’m just amazed at how long they’ve been doing this… Thank God I decided to do my homework, and for places like this where honest people look out for one another.

#191 fofas on 11.27.10 at 5:17 pm

11/27/2010 massachusetts, never sent my $37 bucks in thank god for this blog!

#192 Brenda on 11.28.10 at 2:36 pm

Letter arrived today in state of ME. Was not fooled … it doesn’t say anywhere that its a Visa or MC or that it functions as a multi purpose credit card. Those of us with less than desirable credit should know when someone is trying to take advantage of us.

#193 JQ on 11.29.10 at 1:22 pm

I knew it was a scam…

#194 bbrown on 12.01.10 at 10:30 am

I received this letter today and noticed this is definitely a scam. It is a shame how people are these days, quick to take from innocent people. I have also done research and called the number they had in the letter and nothing is organized. Scam

#195 T & R on 12.01.10 at 4:20 pm

My husband just got the letter today! We thought it was too good to be true and decided to Google it! Thank YOU all for informing the scam! The funny thing though is that we also received an information flyer from the USPS that read ” Do you know the signs of FRAUD?” and that’s exactly what we’ll mail back to them in their pre-paid envelope!!!

#196 MK on 12.01.10 at 10:22 pm

Received this letter today (12.1.2010 in MA) and immediately suspected something was wrong. Of course I looked them up on the web and the first thing that came up was this blog. Apparently, no one can stop them as they seem to be continuing the last couple of years. Is there some site or place we can report this scam?

Thanks to everyone for being so vigilant and providing information!

#197 hani on 12.02.10 at 2:04 am

i sent back the enevolpe and i wrote for them fuck you , and i wish everybody here does the same

#198 Barbara on 12.02.10 at 12:20 pm

This bogus offer is still going. I recieved it on 12/2/10 in Massachusetts. I wanted so much for this to be true because who couldn’t use a 10k credit line at 5% apr? I’ve been dooped by scammers before not gonna get dooped no more! I googled the company and found your comments… Thank you !!

#199 Adam on 12.02.10 at 3:33 pm

Son of the gun, i almost sent in the money

#200 santiago diaz on 12.02.10 at 4:49 pm

a toda la comunidad latina… alerta !!!… este es un fraude… no envie dinero porque lo pierde automaticamente.’Lea las versiones en ingles y se dara cuenta de la realidad de dicha carta.
Be safe… dnot send money !!!

#201 joe on 12.03.10 at 12:16 pm

i knew , to good to be true!!!!,mail the envelope back to them with my dog feces

#202 aaron on 12.03.10 at 1:09 pm

it is a scam i got the letter on 12/02/2010

#203 Luis on 12.03.10 at 2:20 pm

i recieved this letter today
it was to good to be true i visited the website and it looks to fony but anyways its a SCAM!!!!

#204 Stacey on 12.03.10 at 4:28 pm

I knew it was a scam, but wanted to believe that just maybe it wasn’t and would be what I needed to get myself turned around. Curiosity won and I had to at least check it out on the web. Glad to see everyone else taking the initiative to check more into it and protect themselves. If it really is some credit intended for “only” catalog purchases then, you would think they would, provide more information/details on how this works. Of course though they do not, which makes this a scam.

#205 Connie on 12.03.10 at 5:20 pm

Mail their envelope back to them. It costs them to get it. If enough of us do this it could make a difference. My elderly mom got hit by scammers and this is what we were told to do.

#206 Mickey on 12.03.10 at 5:43 pm

I kinda feel the letter says “Dat bitch betta haps ma money” (more or less).

Mickey J

#207 ibrahim on 12.03.10 at 6:32 pm

I am very lucky.. thanks guys

#208 LinELin on 12.04.10 at 11:02 am

I live in Ohio. Thank god I goggled it first because they would have got my $37. Thank you so much for this site!!!

#209 Richard on 12.04.10 at 11:14 am

Thanks goodness for the internet. I received the letter too and didn’t fall for the scam!

#210 Anita on 12.04.10 at 1:17 pm

I knew it was a scam right away. I want to report them to a higher source, any suggestions?
I want everyone to know about these people because an innexperience person may loose out on $37.
I hate this. Is there anything we could do to warn more people about this letter?
I am glad I am able to report this at least. Thanks to all of you for sharing your story.

#211 SAM on 12.04.10 at 1:45 pm


#212 gp on 12.04.10 at 2:13 pm

obvious scam….. nice try

#213 Amy on 12.05.10 at 11:36 am

I got the same letter from them, I’m happy that I looked on to this site and found out that they are scam. I’ve sent them a reply in their envelope though, stating F*** Off A** H****….lol

#214 EM on 12.06.10 at 8:17 am

you guys should take a page from my book send them a check from a bank that is no longer in service scam the scamer.

#215 Karen on 12.06.10 at 2:06 pm

I got the letter Saturday, 12-04-10. Looked it up today and am very glad I didn’t send money. I did, however, find their phone number, and a website that cross-referenced the phone number back to that company. BUT, the address on the letter and the one on the envelope are different than each other. The address on the website is a 3rd address and the other search engine said the address was an entirely different address too. That’s 4 different addresses.

#216 chris on 12.06.10 at 2:45 pm

I sent them my 37$ and haven’t heard anything from them what can I do?

#217 Bernard on 12.06.10 at 3:06 pm

I had the same letter today, I was somehow baffled about the contents so I decided to make a lil research on the web and it paid off…am not gonna try

#218 nolongernieve on 12.06.10 at 4:55 pm

We have gotten this offer 7 (seven) times in the last 3 yrs. The first was my wife before she knew about the scams, and lost (be it not much) $39 at the time. We now get the same offer atleast 3 time a year. We have reported it to out State Att. Gen. as a scam more than once. WHY DOES IT STILL CONTINUE????

#219 Dian on 12.06.10 at 9:25 pm

I received this letter couple days ago. Thanks for your guys info in this internet so i didnt fall for this scam.

#220 MR. B on 12.06.10 at 9:28 pm

Thanks to this web page i didn’t fall for it, i received my letter today and it’s to good to be true… what a scam…

#221 Michelle on 12.07.10 at 5:11 pm

I laughed when I saw that I received a “pre-approved” $10,000 credit. That was all I needed to get me to type the company name into Google & find this website. Just got the letter today, and it’s going into the burn pile after I’m through typing.

#222 PJ on 12.07.10 at 7:01 pm

I received this letter today and it looked fishy since I was just turned down for not having any credit and got that letter today as well. Funny…

#223 Vica on 12.07.10 at 10:24 pm

Always in my mind: Too good to be true ! it works to avoid scam

#224 Prateek on 12.08.10 at 1:13 am

Thanks for the feed-back from so many people. This is complete fraud, I am wondering if someone has filed a fraud suit against these crooks or not.

#225 Candy on 12.08.10 at 4:15 am

Sons of Bitchs needs to get a REAL DAMN JOB and stop trying to take hard working peoples money! Did they not think any smart person on the earth would try to even google there ass?? Well forget them I googled and got my answers and they didn’t get me for my 37 bucks that I worked hard for!! I could use my 37 bucks to buy my wife some flowers now! Sorry to those people who lost there money!

#226 TL on 12.08.10 at 6:15 am

We received our letter two days ago and my husband asked me to check it out so glad I Googled this! I havent even read the letter I left that to him, I just googled the name of the company and this was the second from the top of the list of searches.
Thanks for the information, and so sorry to those that sent them money!

It raised RED FLAG because it looked suspicious with the all info! I HOPE THIS SUCKERS WILL BE CAUGHT ONE DAY!

#231 Kiran on 12.09.10 at 2:18 pm

Hi Thanks alot for your comments.I got the same letter on 12/08/10.I hope i very lucky to see these comments….

Thanks a lot

#232 Daniel G on 12.09.10 at 7:35 pm

Just opened the mailbox today and there was my letter, Thrusday, 12/9/10. Although I filed for bankruptcy two years ago, since I have been out of it and living credit, the credit card offers have come pouring it. When I got this one, I was concerned because it didn’t say that it was a Visa, Master Card, Discover, etc., so I said, well, let me google the company and see if it is legit. I am glad that I did. I am going to go a step further and report this to the BBB.

#233 Xtina on 12.10.10 at 3:16 pm

Received this letter today and decided to research base on my gut feeling that it looked like a scam. Glad I found this forum! Thanks all!

#234 Steve on 12.12.10 at 6:00 pm

I was rushing around getting ready to go to the post office and sent my money in. Today I thought about it and sure enough I got scammed out of much needed cash. I hope they choke on it.

#235 Sam on 12.15.10 at 2:36 pm

I’m from WI and received this same letter on December, 2010. Thank you, everybody!

#236 Tameem on 12.15.10 at 10:20 pm

Thank you very much for the post and the comments. This is definitely a scam.
I am glad I decided to look it up online and came across this page.

#237 Kingheart on 12.16.10 at 7:58 pm

Just now opened mine and got on the web to check it out. How do they keep getting way with this? The address is the same, but if it is fake how do they get the checks? My letter does have a phone number; has anyone called them? I also thought it too odd that they had no website to do “immediate online activation.” Plus, no bank affiliation?? Seems impossible to run credit with no bank! No MasterCard/Visa affiliation? Another red flag. I am just wondering how they keep getting away with it.

#238 Kingheart on 12.16.10 at 8:07 pm

Also, my letter says the card is good for any purchases “from credit provider specified above.” The thing is, there is NO credit provider specified above, i.e., even if you get a card, there is no credit provider to purchase from!

#239 Terri on 12.17.10 at 7:35 am

I received it today, over a year and a half later than the original posts on this site. Looks like they are still trying. Located, Marietta, GA. Thanks Everyone for posting! There is a pre-screen opt out notice number, 1-888-567-8688 for federal removal. There is another number on the payment slip of 1-877-835-0969. I called just for kicks and there was no answer. I will be reoprting them to BBB.

#240 misty on 12.17.10 at 3:03 pm

Received this letter today 12/17/2010,, good thing I found this link, with everyone else… so it appears to be a scam letter… I wonder how many 37. they are stealing from people and when they will get caught.. There are so many comments.. it amazes me how this outfit is stilll in circulation..

#241 AndreaD. on 12.17.10 at 6:56 pm

My husband got a letter today from this “company” I wanted to reasearch it (because just here recently I almost fell for a secret shopper scam) I automaticly new there was somthing wrong when I brought up google and when it did the predictive search it was “union workers credit service inc. scam”

LOL! Thank you for posting this!

#242 Armanious on 12.18.10 at 12:29 pm

I got mine yesterday, I have no problem with my credit, but the idea is that I have no credit history at all, I don’t even have a credit card!!! Needless to say, living your life on google really helps!!! Thanks for the heads up guys … Scamers my A**!!!

#243 youssef on 12.18.10 at 12:34 pm

thank you for your post
I just got the same letter today
they need to stop providing our information to any company
once you get a home phone, or credit card (like Capital one), or you just subscribe with any company, they get your information, and sell it for anyone has $$
they need to stop that, we need to have a law to stop that

#244 rebekah on 12.18.10 at 2:39 pm

i got this letter today. sooo too good to be true :)

glad people put websites up like this so we can see if other people are getting these and if they are spam!

:) turned it into the post office, if you didnt know you could do that and it will stop this letter from ever going through the mail to anyone!

#245 Mark on 12.19.10 at 8:38 am

Good thing i look the thing on the website. It was really weird they would ask to send 37 bucks, and no number to call to verify the number as well that you want this thing. Thanks for looking out. I just got the mail today the funny thing was the expire day was shown like 4 days ago when it was sent to me so look at the expire date taht was BIG FLAGG FOR ME. So thanks

#246 Jay on 12.19.10 at 10:34 am

Yeah, looks like WI is on the “hit list” for this sort of scam… If the letters are still going out, some scum is making $ doing it… Heartbreaking… Thank you UWCS for being Christ-like here at Christmas… You are in TX I see, take your pre-teen daughter to her beauty pageant…

#247 kristi on 12.20.10 at 9:27 am

I got this letter TODAY. Lol i googled it and this is what came up. Im so happy i did look this up and did not send the 37.00. I also looked at the web sight and well just look for your self ITS A SCAM dont do it.

Thanks every one hope you have a marry christmas.

#248 Reddog on 12.20.10 at 12:09 pm

Just got my letter, I save all of my junk mail ( high interest credit card offers and what not ) over time for things like this I remove my name pack as much of it in their return envelope as I can for weight (they pay the shipping cost) and give it all to them that way I can kill two birds with one stone. I am truly sorry to those who sent money but Im glad to see allot of people are checking on it before they do.

#249 Laura on 12.20.10 at 3:49 pm

#251 gerald walker jr. on 12.21.10 at 12:27 am

Im an ex-cop and i always was under the impression the using the postal service during felony fraud was a federal offense, oh well what ever. Im retired now so i have time. Ill try and get their ass for all of us.

#252 Mike on 12.21.10 at 5:15 am

Don’t believe anything that is too good to be true. It always is. Hope whoever it is can be caught. I got mine today and found this web page. As a routine I always look things like this up on the internet to be sure. Be careful everyone and keep your money in your pocket. The predators are out there in droves and they have no scrupples.

#253 carolyn on 12.21.10 at 5:17 pm

I got the letter today, I live in Pensacola, FL will send them back the empty envelope, that will cost them. lol

#255 Rebecca on 12.22.10 at 12:32 pm

We have a construction company and have look-alike credit offers frequently. Those who pray on the the hardest economically hit deserve a special place in hell.This is a direct sales scam; buy only from them and play hell trying to contact someone if there is a problem. Imagine if one of the big box stores charged a fee for you to come in the door to shop?

#256 Ibrahim on 12.22.10 at 12:40 pm

Thanks GOD, we have GOOGLE.
googled it and as i thought BIG SCAM.

#257 platinum-card my ass on 12.23.10 at 10:59 am

i just got my pre-approved credit for a second i thought ok thats wasup then i decided to look it up as i do with most everything and sure enough it is a SCAM good thing too cuz i think i would have went and found these scum bags and eat a slug i hate scam artists why not get a real hustle?

#267 jeff on 12.30.10 at 7:04 pm

Fuck them

#268 Mike on 12.30.10 at 8:34 pm

I actually sent the check in unfortunately :-/. By doing so I noticed they already cashed my check I sent them…obviously there is no way of getting my check back…but now that I mailed them that check…they cannot possibly take more money than the $37 I have already given them correct?

#269 SKIPMASTERZ on 12.30.10 at 9:55 pm


#270 nelly on 12.30.10 at 10:11 pm

I received the letter today 12/30/10 and i’m glad to find all this people sharing their experiences, thank you all. We should send them fake money orders to laugh at them. Hahaha!

#271 Mandy on 12.31.10 at 4:14 pm

I received the same letter today, I knew it was a total scam, I have no credit what’s so ever and why would anyone give me a ten thousand dollar credit limit. By te looks of the letter raised the dirt flag, if you look closely, the spacing is way off and I googled the address and there is absolutely nothing there just a road leading to NOWHERE.

#272 glaze on 01.01.11 at 1:25 pm

hey this thing worked for me i got mine… jk btt yea thanks u guys cuz i wuz just bout to get scamed but im to smart for that. thats why we got trusty internet

#273 LuckygiRL on 01.01.11 at 1:46 pm

I am so happy I read this before I sent $ in. Happy New Year!

#274 AKOTO on 01.02.11 at 1:21 am

What is the common denominator? Where do you think they get our information? I just received the letter (12/30/10) and was jumping for joy for it is the help I’ve been waiting for. But it’s kind of intriguing and I decided to looked it up. Thank goodness I did and found y’all. We need to do something. Can’t we like report this to the government or any agencies? I hope they die in agony.

#275 Jazzlyn on 01.02.11 at 10:51 pm

I received this letter today 1/2/2011 Thank goodness I decided to research this. I thought it was weird someone was going to give me a $10,000 credit limit.

#276 Justin on 01.03.11 at 12:55 pm

I got mine today 01/03/2011 to good to be true. Never ever pay money for credit card.. If your PRE-APPROVED you would not be asked for money up front. Also offer set to expire 01/20/2011, I never applied nor did I ever ask for anything. RED FLAGS EVERYWHERE ON THE LETTER!!!!! Do not fall for this scam!!!!

#277 joni on 01.03.11 at 4:59 pm

Thank all of you for leaving a comment,there is so much internet & mail fraud we all need to keep a heads up approach.The way the economy is now fraud of all types are on the rise ! I received a letter today 1-3-11,these bad people are still trying to use this scam.

#278 Anonim on 01.04.11 at 1:26 am

I am from Seattle, WA and received the same letter on Jan 3d, 2011. I didn’t realize right away it was a scam, because i am very new in this country and believe in american law;-)))). But I decided to Google their website to find more info about this Platinum card. While i was typing their name, the word scam came up as well. I stumbled across this page. Thank you guys. It saved me 37 dollars and no drama in future!

#279 Jodi on 01.04.11 at 7:01 am

Yup, got one today. Didn’t want to do it because I’m really not a fan of Unions! BF wanted to grab that hot 5% interest rate. Did some research when I realized the letter said it was not affiliated w/ Mastercard or Visa, or ANY bank for that matter.
Wait, it never even specifically says CREDIT card in this letter. It says “platinum card membership”. Jerks.

#280 audacity on 01.04.11 at 3:53 pm

Got mine today, 01/04/11. Thanks for warnings!

But, send them the envelope back (without any personal info of course) cause they have to pay for the POSTAL FEES then!

Take care:)

#281 Ritesh on 01.04.11 at 4:25 pm

I got same letter today. I would reflect same feeling as other people that good I googled and found this.

Dt. Jan 04 2011.

#282 Belinda on 01.04.11 at 6:04 pm

I also got the mail today..Im glad I search for and found this blog..thank you so much!

#283 anon on 01.04.11 at 7:24 pm

Crap. I received this letter, so I guess this means that my credit is worse than I thought.

#284 Bec on 01.04.11 at 7:41 pm

These guys are still at it, got my letter today. 10,000 dollars indeed. Ha

#285 Sharon on 01.05.11 at 11:38 am

I work with the elderly in Wyoming and one of my residents got a letter today. She was in good enough shape mentally to realize this was a scam. We posted it and hope other residents will read it and not join! This is a sin. I do not understand how these people are permitted to do this year after year. The person who received the letter is taking it to the post office to see about reporting mail fraud.

#286 sirdirkfan on 01.05.11 at 1:02 pm

Do as I did — Send the ‘offer’ to your state attorney’s office.

#287 audacity on 01.06.11 at 1:07 pm

Thank you very much for the post and the comments. This is definitely a scam. I got mine on 1/4/11. I decided to Google it to find out if it was a true thing. I am so glad that i did. Didn’t get my money……

#290 tumar on 01.09.11 at 11:32 am

Thank you google and all of you guys i will call and get my 37.00$ i hope i still have chance and i sink it is not legal to send approval for platinum credit card and send piece junk

#291 Zenobia on 01.10.11 at 5:07 pm

I send them $37 .00 Now I am waiting and expecting my credit card I went to the computer to check info. and I find that side. So it is is a scam. What we can do abut. How Can we solve that ? I believe we can do something. Why not. If any idea please share

#292 Cliffy on 01.11.11 at 1:16 pm

Yes it looked good at first, then…no phone number. I wanted to call them up and ask some questions…ya right. I like the send the envelope back idea. Thanks folks, well get there together…

#293 very glad girl on 01.13.11 at 2:17 pm

I recently recieve a letter saying the same thing, that i have been approved for 10,000,000 and i am so glad i went online and found out that it is a big, very ,very,very big scam,so i thank the girl that posted the letter online for me so see.be careful i also got scamed by a company before this one. it had a visa logo on the right had side and there info is (National Credit SVC. 1401 Doug Baker Blvd Suite 107-186 ,Birmingham AL 35242) They were said to be a financal service company.They sent me a letter November 18.2010 and i still have received anything,and that was a 49.00 fee plus i remember sending an extra 4.oo to rush the card. And i am one of those people, you got me once but no more ,because now i check every thing out that seems not right. Do not do it if you have not done your home work.

#298 joan hayes on 01.17.11 at 11:09 am

#299 Wife on 01.19.11 at 4:17 pm

I got this letter today 1-19-2011 my husband new immediatly it was a scam!. We are sending back the envelope with a drawing of my check ;) from the “kissmyass” bank account. We might put some weitght on it so they pay even more than regular postage… we should all do the same!

#300 Alertindc on 01.20.11 at 11:18 am

Glad I checked this site; decided to ask a union rep at work and he advised me to google the company. Glad I did it. Course, because I did not see a phone number for the company, I became suspicious. Thanks for the confirmation. Won’t get my $37.00, times are too hard now.

#301 Jason on 01.20.11 at 6:27 pm

Received this same letter today.( 01/20/11.) It looks like these criminals are still going strong. I’m glad I check the internet first. Remember, if its too good to be true, check the internet.

#302 lady o on 01.21.11 at 5:34 pm

I recieved the same letter yesterday 1/20/11 its a good thing i did the research behind this company, because was on the to send them my $37 bucks smh lol.

#303 Peggy on 01.24.11 at 5:01 pm

Hey guys, they’re still out there. I just received mine in the mail today and knew it was a scam because of two things. It says it is “unafilliated with Visa and Mastercard,” so, okay, where can you use it because it doesn’t have a name. Secondly, it says you will receive the information, terms, etc. when they send you a card. Two major “red flags.” I’m just glad there were so many of you who decided to do their research. If you consider the possibility that 100,000 people fell for this because of their distribution, they’ve probably sent it to a million by now over almost three years, that means they have collected $3,700,000 that nobody will ever see again. Everybody just keep your wits about you when “it’s too good to be true.” Yes, many of us are desparate right now because of the economy, but that’s also why scam artists like this can succeed!

#304 Alex on 01.24.11 at 8:06 pm

Wow wow I just check on google thanks god…I was ready to send the 37 $ but I called before…SCAM SCAM SCAM…. DON’T send any money to this scam program!!!!. Good luck.

#305 Neecie on 01.25.11 at 3:25 pm

maybe they will get busted one of these days. Looks like they have been doing this for years. the letter doesn’t say anywhere if it’s a Visa or Mastercard or what. Has anyone gotten the “card” in the mail after they sent their $37.00? Probably not. Always check things out, and remember, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

#306 Neecie on 01.25.11 at 3:27 pm

it does not mention anywhere if it’s a Visa, Mastercard or what. if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably must be.

#307 L hale on 01.27.11 at 6:03 am

my mom just the same letter and Im glad I looked online….thanks for the heads up!!

#308 Dennis Newman on 01.28.11 at 7:14 am

Two words…Mail Fraud. If this many have gone out, take your letter to the Post Office with a note stating your complaint and reference this site as a sampling of complaints.
I got my letter yesterday. Heading for the post office now.

#309 ecomomically desperate? on 01.28.11 at 10:38 am

wow!!! I had the check written out! sooo Glad i went to the web and checked it out???? don’t do it ! Its a SCAM!

#310 miah on 01.28.11 at 3:32 pm

yeap i got the stupid letter anyway I know i am not approved because there is other legit ones that’s out there that denied me. and besides my credit is so shot that i couldn’t get anything anyway so ah ha

#311 miah on 01.28.11 at 3:44 pm

and how the hell did these idiots get my address man people will kill their own grandmother and or family members just to get insurance money or just to get paid. Money is the root of all evil out of 100 (45%) of rich people did something to someone to get where they are don’t believe me watch the news. FRAUD is a BIG one not paying their employees is another one getting huge loans and hiding the money then going to file bankruptcy so they don’t have to pay it back anyone else has something else i forgot or i just feel like typing because it’s to long. please add more let the world know

#312 Mrs.Me on 01.28.11 at 6:49 pm

got the same letter! thank you for the red flag alert. xoxo

#313 DJ on 01.29.11 at 4:02 pm

I got this offer a couple of days ago & opened it today. If is sounds too good, you know the rest. I googled their name and SCAM was attached. It appears that this scam has been around for 2 years. State’s Attorney, Attorney General, someone has to stop these predators.

#314 Heather on 01.29.11 at 4:08 pm

I got that letter today. It looked familiar liked id seen it before. So I googled and read several of your posts. Thanks. I just took thier envelop and folded up all the sales papers i got in the mail the other day small enough to fit. sealed. added tape to ensure its stays sealed. and put it right back in the mail. Theyre not going to like the price of that postage. I have a FPB card too. canceling immediately.

Hey Folks here it is Jan. 2011 and I just got the same letter. Seemed like a bunch of bull and is. Just thought I would let all know.

#318 AB on 01.31.11 at 7:18 am

This is my second time receiving this notice within a space of year 1/2. I don’t know how these crooks are still in this scam business after all this time. They must be bind by some legal procedure they follow to keep this up in trying to get a sucker out there to buy into this illegitimate SCAM!! Something has to be done ASAP!!

#319 Donna T. on 01.31.11 at 8:28 am

I was duped! How could someone be so evil to take another person hard working money.

#320 James R on 01.31.11 at 2:05 pm

Letter came in tadays mail (1/31/11) and after a quick look red flags flew so it was time to check the ‘net. Sure ’nuff I found this site at top of the google search.

I did not bite and am glad that others are wising up to these scam artists.

#321 Sylvia Wilk on 01.31.11 at 5:45 pm

I just got this letter in the mail. I was tempted but I googled first. After all these years, why hasnt anyone got to the bottom of this scam and why is it still continuing? There are a lot of complaints and a lot of people scammed.

#322 Steve J on 01.31.11 at 5:50 pm

Thank god i looked it up on google. I am in a union and i thought it was something from my union. It wasnt, if i ever get my hands on a scammer i will physically take all the money they have on them. There are so many scams out there, just remember if it sounds too good to be true IT IS. You dont get anything for free or easy, especially these days, its cut throat. Also look out for Michelle Mathews work from home and EVERY other work from home deal. DONT DO IT, ITS NOT WORTH UR HARD EARNED DOLLAR!

#323 Lisa on 02.01.11 at 6:00 pm

Received mine today…..sending in the blank envelope. Many red flags: No telephone number, you have to send the $37.00 in advance and it says in small print NOTE: the $37.00 is fully refundable with your first purchase using your $10,000.00 credit limit. It also says in even finer print: Credit amount referenced herein shall not be construed to function as any type of multi-purpose credit card and is exclusively applicable for credit purchases from UWCS. Pretty self-explanatory to me…..not a credit card at all. I hope everyone is smart enough to read this letter over VERY carefully so as not to be scammed!!

#324 ENid Pena on 02.02.11 at 11:58 am

I am repairing my credit, and months letter I go this letter. Thanks to the Lord that I was able to find out through this web.


#325 Enid Pena on 02.02.11 at 11:59 am

I am repairing my credit, and months later I go this letter. Thanks to the Lord that I was able to find out through this web.


#326 Mindy on 02.03.11 at 5:11 pm

I just got this and I immediately googled it and was so glad I did. In this economy they are getting rich off of us. How many $37 dollar checks do you think they’ve received since 2009. Just another Madoff.

#327 Minister Monique on 02.03.11 at 10:07 pm

Thank you sooo much for starting this web chat. It spared me from wasting money. I will contact the agencies listed from entry #227

#328 Rowena on 02.04.11 at 5:23 pm

Thanks for all of you guys. Got this mail 2/11 and when i saw it I knew it’s a scam. Gotta be careful with all this Evil people. It’s our hard earned money!!!!!

#329 College Student on 02.05.11 at 9:37 am

They aren’t technically scamming you. The letter is just an illusion. They send it to a select few who are in need of money. So much in need that when they get the letter, and see the 10,000 in bold, accompanied by the familiar credit card companies, they automatically disregard the rest of the letter.

The Union Workers Credit Service stated in the letter they sent me that I had been guaranteed a 10,000.00 credit limit VALID TOWARDS PURCHASES FROM CREDIT PROVIDER SPECIFIED ABOVE. They state above the letter that they are the credit providers. That’s why they can’t be shut down. They are legit, but they use unclear methods to scam people. The best a lawsuit can do is force them to be clear on who and what the credit limit is providing.

People that fall for it aren’t stupid. The money could come in handy for many. If I weren’t naturally cautious, I would’ve fallen for it without thought. I just usually depend on second opinion when it comes to my credit.

I hope less people are falling for this, hopefully someone will stop these tricksters.

#330 Tara on 02.05.11 at 1:55 pm

I just received this in the mail today. I knew there was no way in hell someone would give me a $10,000 limit. My husband has perfect credit and none of his cards are anywhere near that high. I decided to google it just to be safe…..knew it was a scam. It’s sad though. Many people desperate for money in this economy may believe it’s true. Not everyone owns a computer. I hope these thieves are caught and prosecuted. From what i can see from the comments, these letters have been going out since at least 2009, that disgusts me.

#331 Tara on 02.05.11 at 1:57 pm

Oh and my letter has a phone number on it……1-877-835-0969…..they must me getting smarter about their scam

#332 Rayne on 02.06.11 at 8:20 am

Got one today. Thanks for posting all of this, will definitely share. I’m in Arkansas.

#333 Lipstick78 on 02.06.11 at 4:17 pm

Red Flag came up when they asked for money????Thanks for the info on this…..

#334 debra on 02.07.11 at 5:13 am

I to got this letter the end of jan. 2011 it sounded to good to be true so just like you I googled by the way Im in ohio

#335 Dr. J on 02.07.11 at 5:51 pm

You will in fact get a card from them with a $10,000 credit limit. But it’s NOT a credit card and you can only spend it on their sites and catalog. It’s carefully written and they can legally get away with it for NOW. But it’s really a scam. Stay Away People!!!

#336 brien on 02.07.11 at 7:12 pm

i got one today! i felt it was fake from the get go. Normally the real ones have all this info with the letter on that shiny paper and tell you how wonderful it is to be getting this letter. this was a lonely piece of paper that any kinkos could make, also i didnt feel special. LOL.
if my other cards arent extending my limit when i’ve paid on time for some time why would they? seemed so b.s. and i’ve been watching20/20 to long to be that ignorant. shame on them. people are broke right now as it is. BAD KARMA!

#337 Joe S on 02.07.11 at 9:01 pm

I live in South Jersey, and received the same letter Feb 5th 2011. I mailed them a nice letter letting them know how I felt. Plus they pay the postage.

#338 Bklynqueen on 02.08.11 at 5:47 am

I got one I feel so special. I had to check it out. I agree with a previous comment everyone should send back an empty envelope, so that they will have to pay for postage. My credit is not horrible but it’s not the greatest, so I know I would not receive a 10,000.00 limit lmbo. Shame on the scammers.

#339 hayankine on 02.08.11 at 8:47 pm

what to do is u get the return envalope that they send fill it full of junk and send it back to them.they must pay for the postage for this JUNK MAIL mailed back to them.

#340 Robert Giggs on 02.08.11 at 11:08 pm

I received the letter today and said to myself; “This is a blessed day for me.” I was planning to use the money and pay off the other credit cards and then have to deal only with this 0.5% APR. Then my guts told me to google them and I am glad I found this. I will mail then an empty envelope with a piece of paper telling them to try elsewhere.

#341 Maribel on 02.09.11 at 10:15 pm

Hey guys. Thanx for posting this up. You just saved me $37 dollars. I knew the letter was to good to be true.

#342 stevilew on 02.11.11 at 1:07 pm

I got this letter on Jan 22 2011, why hasn’t this (fake) bullcrap been in investigated by the FEDS ??? This IS one of those TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE,

#343 Richard Wright on 02.11.11 at 5:51 pm

I get card offers sometimes because I’ve been repairing my credit over the past couple of years with secured cards.

When I read this the first sentence was a complete tip off, “It’s nice to inform you that you have been identified…” Blah blah blah. It’s “nice” to inform you? Whaaa? I wouldn’t take out a ten grand credit line from someone who puts a greeting together like that, laughable.

You shouldn’t consider this sort of thing anyway. If you want to repair your credit do what I did. Walk in to a bank or credit union and speak to a banker about some options, they are out there.

It’s bad enough that people would do this to ANYONE. But its just low down nasty and foul that there are Americans down in Texas that would do this to other Americans who are hurting so bad economically. We’re losing our homes, jobs, and in some cases families. And here are AMERICANS trying to rip us off.

Who do these guys think they are, the Bush administration?

#344 Chris on 02.12.11 at 9:41 pm

Don’t simply send the envelope back with a nasty note. STUFF THAT SUCKER FULL!! STUFF IT SO FULL YOU CAN BARELY FOLD THE FLAP OVER AND GLUE IT SHUT!!!
Not only will they have to pay the return postage, but if it’s over weight, they get to pay inflated rates on the letter because it’s too heavy for just a single stamp to cover the costs. Stuff it as full as you possibly can and drop it in the box. I use other junk mail. :)

#345 Ben F on 02.13.11 at 9:24 am

I figured this to be a scam since I am not a member of a union and I never got so little information from a letter extending me credit. I do have very good credit and have cards with $10,000 limits but this letter that asks me to send them money, when a number of sub-prime credit companies like the First Premier Bank (thankfully I never got one of those) puts whatever charges you owe them right on to the credit card so they can charge you ridiculous interest and fees. If you don’t have good credit watch out for any company that extends you pre-approved credit. Read everything that is sent to you before signing up. It’s sad, but it seems like credit card companies, auto dealerships, even banks prey on people with less than good credit and try to convince you that no one in the world would approve you for credit but them. If you want to restore your credit I suggest you Google all credit card companies and find companies, such as Orchard Bank (which used to be part of HSBC and is now part of Household Bank) that will charge you just an annual fee and a ridiculous interest rate. Thing is, just get the card, pay the $50 or so they charge you for the annual fee, then buy a pair of socks or something every month with the card. Then pay it in full at the end of the month. That’s how I established my credit. It took about 2-3 years of doing that but now I have tons of companies offering me unsecured lines of credit with low interest rates. Just be very careful getting a loan from a car dealership. Even though I have nothing bad on my credit report and a good FICO score they still try to screw me with a loan from a car dealership. This is a bit off topic, but I suggest if you are in the market to get a car, secure your financing before you even go to the dealership and have the salesman write down all charges, adding up to the final cost of the car on a piece of paper. I asked this of many dealerships when I went to buy my last car and only one would agree to do it. Kind of tells you something fishy is going on there doesn’t it?

#346 cary on 02.17.11 at 3:26 pm

all you have to do to get your members package is call the number on there site. I called them and i got my members package a week later they have really nice stuff. i cant say a thing wrong about them.

#347 ismael ratinoff on 02.18.11 at 7:35 pm

I hate the scammers trying to get money from people that many timnes do not even have jobs, please send them back the postage paid envelope, at least they will spend some of their earnings! CROOKS!

Mine came today (2/26/2011).
Pretty obvious scam but thought I’d check anyway. Thanks to all for the warnings.

#351 Ragin Cajun on 02.28.11 at 4:58 pm

reviews and googled almost everything I purchase now.
After reading this note I didn’t even bother to go directly to the reviews. Small Business Administration loans oney at these rates, no some off the wall finance company. But they still caught my eye and had I have not been recently scammed, I would have held onto it and read it over and over.
Anyway, how do we get a scammer club going guys and gals?


#352 Vicki on 03.02.11 at 1:30 pm

How stupid am I??? I mailed the d*mn $37.00 to them 3 weeks ago. and look…they have been getting away with this for years. Why can’t the unions stop them?

#355 Bay on 03.08.11 at 3:18 pm

IM SOOO HAPPY I CHECKED THIS OUT!!! I’ve been scammed into and online job before, with bogus checks, and someone was trying to get me in the middle of a law suit. So I just KNEW that this too had to have been fake. I was real happy when I saw it thought, because I recently applied for a credit card and got denied, so thank God I checked this out first!

#356 kexcia on 03.16.11 at 7:50 am

I called to make sure that the offer was real because I just started my credit line and they put you on hold for hours and never pick up so u can give up and just send them the money and I Googled it and there was no info on there web site so any one who gets it just ignore it and rip it up

#357 Rebecca I. on 03.16.11 at 11:18 pm

Thanks all of you to post this warning. I will send back the envelope with heavy stuff for them to paid it.

#358 miss5nine on 03.19.11 at 6:17 pm

i too received a letter and decided to pull it up on the web first and im glad i did. the reason i pulled it up is because im in bankruptcy also so i know these folls was not givin me money like that.

#359 Judi on 03.22.11 at 3:11 pm

I just got the letter today and it just didn’t seem right. I have never received an offer that wanted money up front. Thank God I check into it and didn’t send any money. Shame on people like that for trying to take advantage of honest people.

#360 chip on 03.22.11 at 7:45 pm

There isnt a phone number on the letter they send you, but i do see it on their website. I’m not so sure its a scam so Im checking it out at the better business bureau.
It might be worth a look since i have no credit to speak of.

#363 Geo on 03.24.11 at 3:17 pm

Wow cant believe this 2 years of bad comments yet I just got this letter today. Think I’ll send them back a letter saying “Fuck off scammers” lol Thanks for the heads up all.

#364 Geo on 03.24.11 at 3:32 pm

Haha even better with the letter, think I’ll include 37.00 in nice fake monopoly money :-)

#365 Charlie Sheen on 03.25.11 at 7:41 pm

Cheers Dumbasses!
i didn’t get this letter but my hooker did and thot i’d chk it out. do you guys realize that the PREPAID envelope would probably not cost them any more … maybe b/c it is ‘PRE’ PAID. anyways great stuff.

#366 tcherry on 03.29.11 at 12:56 am

got my letter like 2 days ago….red flags immediately went up. when i get something like this my first instinct is to search the BBB…as it turns out these people have been in “business” since 2005 and have over 300 complaints filed against them!

#367 Daniel on 04.04.11 at 8:27 pm

I filled mine with rocks. I weighed it, and it came out to a little over 3 lbs. I wonder how much it’s gonna cost them. I honestly thought about buying some little lead blocks and sticking those in the envelope.

Anyways, I suggest everyone get rocks or something else heavy that will fit in the envelope and send it back to them.

At the same time, people should consider reporting these idiots to the Feds.

#368 Becky on 04.09.11 at 10:00 pm

I recieved this too…. im in indiana…. this is rediculous… this company needs to get a heart. and a real job to make money like the rest of us!!!!!

#369 Rey on 04.14.11 at 6:32 pm

Got same letter on 4/20/2011. Thanks for the heads up on this scam.

#370 Camille on 04.16.11 at 2:46 pm

I got my letter in the mail April 16 2011 at a time I am looking for more credit.

I didn’t like the fact that a credit union was charging a fee to open a credit line and I scratched my head when I read the credit union name. Both of these things were red flags to me. I’m glad I came on here and found other people see red flags too.

#371 Xiong Ly on 04.18.11 at 10:18 am

1st of all, it’s 10,000… 2nd of all there’s no bank affiliation.. so that mean’s no companies going to borrow you money, when you borrow money it’s through banks or people or friends, i just received it and I figure it was already a scam. Eigther way the only way they could of got my information was through one company a person who is scamming works in. I know a good way I could make this person stop… I got the address, I got the money and I got the location…. Why not fly there and Beat fear the crap out of the scammers!!!!!!!!!!!! and give them my 37 dollars, so i guess 2 hours of beating them up would make that 40 dollars they asking?

#372 Lorna on 04.19.11 at 8:52 am

I receive this letter like 2 weeks ago, and I was considering in sending a check with the amount of $37. I am so happy I didn’t, thanks for everything.

#373 Demetrius on 04.20.11 at 3:16 pm

1. Address bogus: It’s Tony’s Pizza
2. Phone 888-567-8688 is a data collection service. If they don’t get you withe the letter they will fi you call that number and give them what they need.
3. I am filing a complaint with the Dallas DA office.


#374 Demetrius on 04.20.11 at 3:17 pm


#375 Demetrius on 04.20.11 at 3:19 pm

Hey Rey. Question? How can you post on 4/14 and you recieve the letter on 4/20……lol.

#376 Mafia Gp on 04.20.11 at 9:35 pm

LoL.. about reys comment lmao…
good eye Demetrius, good eye !!!

at least I smile today after having such a bad day..

well by the way I recieve this letter today and I thought that finally, I was getting lucky and that I was going to be able to do a couple things that I need to do which i havent do it because of not having this amount of $ 10,000 dlls now sigh….

even my girlfriend AMY lol…. thought that it was from a credit card company hahaha but of course I was not sure and I am very picky about things like this and I have my doubts, so thats why im here fellows

thanks to you all for the heads up on this SCAM


#377 thomasSERVO on 04.23.11 at 12:56 pm

Got this today and nearly shot fruit punch out of my nose laughing at their lame attempt to steal my $37.

I love how it’s suggestive of possibly being a credit card. If you just look quickly at the bold words running down the page (capitalization exactly as quoted)

“GUARANTEED $10,000.00 credit limit”
“LOW, LOW interest rate of 5 1/2% APR”

– Dead giveaways to run like hell from this offer –

1) It tries to appear as a credit card, but unlike any real credit card offers that are legit, there are none of the 15 pages of legally mandated fine print on each and every word written on the offer letter.

2) Bank Affiliation is “none.” Even department store credit card accounts are operated by a (usually) reputable 3rd-party bank/lender. This is mandated by US law as is the entities disclosure with a statement like, “this credit card is serviced by First National Bank of Muckenfutch, Kansas, 2469 South Muckenfutch Drive, Muckenfutch, KS…..”

3) “Full details of your membership and its exclusive benefits will be mailed with your new Platinum Card.” — basically this says, “Hey idiot, just send us your damn $37 bucks and we’ll then tell you what your terms are after we got your money.” Who makes a financial credit decision on these terms and honestly thinks that they are not going to be screwed by it?


Bummer though, because I really could have used money from my $10,000 credit limit to help speed up the processing of my $30,000,000 inheritance from my long lost 48.5th cousin in Nigeria.

#378 thomasSERVO on 04.23.11 at 1:23 pm

forgot to also mention that no reputable company offers a “refund of money guarantee.”

This makes you tend to assume that if you are dissatisfied you will get a full refund, and in this case you get 60 days to decide instead of the more common 30 days. But “refund of money guarantee” and “money-back guarantee” are two different animals. “Refund of money” does not specify what you are getting back, just that they refund you some money. It could be $37. It could be $37 minus the handling fee of 36.99. It could be a peso. Pesos are “money.”

“Money-back” guarantees imply you get back waht you gave. Most companies go further and even specify an amount like a 100% money back guarantee and if there are some charges involved, those are listed in the fine print that non-scams provide prior to you paying them.

#379 Kyle on 04.23.11 at 1:58 pm

I just received the same letter today 04-23-2011. I’m in Prescott, AZ. I knew something was not right with this letter…so I looked it up online…Thank you so much for the warning…I’ll let everyone in my family and workplace know about this…AND SHAME ON YOU SCAMMERS…

#380 Ray on 04.24.11 at 5:07 pm

Got the letter yesterday. To me the credit limit was too high to be true, in comparison to my current credit line. so raised a red flag. I instantly googled it and happy to save $37.00. Thanks guys!

#381 jessica on 04.25.11 at 12:21 pm

Yeah, I just got the same letter today. My husband was all excited because we could really use the money. glad I decided to look before I sent the money! Beware of craigslist scammers too. I get posting replys all the time from scammers. DONT EVER SEND YOUR MERCHANDISE WITHOUT RECIEVING MONEY!!! AND NEVER SEND MONEY TO GET A CREDIT CARD. They get their money off of the interest. Thanks a lot everyone!

#382 jessica on 04.25.11 at 12:22 pm

And I will be sending back the envelope full of a F*** You letter (:

#383 jay on 04.25.11 at 12:54 pm

thanks for heads up .why doesn’t the police in dallas tx area code 75356-9691 go to the post office and arrest whoever picks up the mail from po box 569799????? daaaa?

#384 Kenneth Jessie on 04.26.11 at 7:44 pm

I thank you all for the data of TRUTH about Union Workers Credit which is a bogus, no good for nothing scammers. I’m in debt already so $37 dollars could be used to pay something towards my debt. I learn not to trust no one but God and lean not on my own understanding but in all my ways lean and depend on God and I will be just fine. Greed gets us all in debt so i do without the wants and live with the needs. Work to pay the necessities and you will be ok. No credit cards, no payday loans or bank accounts fees ect…, just cash to pay rent, food,electric and phone bills. The rest is not impartant to me they are just wants to get you deeper and deeper in debt. Thanks for warning me about this company. I almost let the want demon overwhelm me. I won’t let greed get me in trouble no more so be careful America’s hard workers from pay check to pay check scammers are everywhere.

P.S Union Workers Credit Service has a new number to deceive you out of money (877)835-0969.
Where is 911 when you need them???

#385 Melanie on 04.27.11 at 4:55 pm

I received my letter 4/27/11 and agree with Jay #379. Why hasn’t this been stopped???

#386 trisha on 04.28.11 at 4:51 am

My daughter just recieved this letter today and thought no way she got a letter giving her this kind of credit. I knew I needed to check it out because she would have sent the money. Thank God people have already let me know heads up on this scam. Thank you all!!!

#387 Rachel on 04.28.11 at 5:53 am

I got the same letter yesterday, now it seems they are targeting WI because of our recent strong display of union support. Disgusting ! It is looking like there are other entities out to screw union workers, not just Scott Walker !

#388 Tiffany on 04.28.11 at 2:42 pm

Thank u all for setting up this website. I knew it was to good to be true so I stuck with my gutt feeling and desided to google it. I just opened my mail and knew right away it was to good to be true. I have read all the comment people from all over the world have left and this has been going on for over 3 years. Please dont send your $37.00 in. I thank God i didnt. That is called wisdom. When you know better, you do better! So thanks again you guys! Much Love to all!!!! Montgomery,AL

#389 TRACY BRUGH on 04.29.11 at 8:39 pm


#390 jon on 04.30.11 at 7:12 am

awesome. i got the letter and got the money order. i was applying for a union job so i figured thats why i got the letter. good thing i got on the check to see if it was a scam before i sent out for this.

#391 John on 05.01.11 at 10:30 am

I completed the form, wrote a check and sealed the envelope. My wife mentioned scam so I told her that it looks legit. However I told her that I’d google it to find out. Well I’m happy to say that I found this thread and tore up the envelope! Thanks for looking out!!!

#392 Eddie on 05.02.11 at 10:23 am

I live down in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and I had just finished receiving this letter over the weekend and was going to send it off with the $37 today. Looked like a great opportunity. I’m so glad that I checked this web site out.
Thanks for the info. I hope that everyone stops by here prior to sending any money to these folks.

#393 Karen D on 05.04.11 at 3:30 pm

Got my letter and I knew it was true good to be true, It’s unforgiveable to pray on people when things are soooooo hard for every body. I wasn’t going to do this anyway as I’m getting rid of my credit cards as soon as I can. Having seen the web site and then all these comments why hasn’t this been stopped. This is a horrible scam and it’s been going on since 2009. These people are crooks . Thanks to all that have posted comments.

#394 Heidi on 05.09.11 at 3:38 am

I work for a bank so even without this site, I knew it was a scam - BUT I decided to post because I agree that everyone who gets this letter SHOULD mail it back in - just don’t include a check. Rather than that, include a note that says “Not Interested” or “No Thanks.” They pay for postage so why not???

Anyways, I got my letter yesterday and wrote “Send it with no fee, no APR and no credit check required at all, and I’ll CONSIDER IT!”

We’ll see if I get a reply… haha

#395 K on 05.09.11 at 12:18 pm

Thanks for the heads up everyone! Letter in the trash, empty envelope in the mail.

#396 Angi on 05.10.11 at 2:30 pm

One of my employees got this same letter today. 5/10/11. He said no matter what anyone says he is getting this card. I told him NO it is a scam. He didn’t believe me.. so I Googled it and showed his this page. Now I think he finally believes me. I’ve been there done that. Got the same letter myself a year or so ago. Needless to say I googled it then also and this is the site I found. That paper was put in my shredder.. lol

#397 Dee on 05.11.11 at 4:03 am

My 65 year old mother showed me her letter received today and I told her do not send any money. She lives in Tucson Arizona, I just happened to be visiting her from out of state. She thinks it is legitimate and I told her it is a scam, pre-approved offers never ask for money first!

#398 DeeDee on 05.11.11 at 5:59 pm

I just got one of those offers today. I thought it was a scam cause legit companies do not request money from you. Good looking out with this site for anyone who’s not sure. I agree with the person who said we should all send it back in an envelope weighted down with extra paper to increase the postage!

Also I sent them a bunch of old soy sauce and ketchup packets I found in the fridge when cleaning this spring. Remember to always send the envelope back with something in it, they dont pay a penny unless you do.

#401 John on 05.16.11 at 11:05 pm

I got it and used the $10,000 to buy a new car and pay off back rent. Thank you Union Workers!!!

Just kidding. This is so obviously a scam I do not believe I am looking it up on line to prove it.

#402 Mel on 05.17.11 at 12:04 am

We should all attach the postage paid envelope to a building brick and mail it.

#403 Jay on 05.17.11 at 3:26 pm

Just put it back in the envelope with $37 monopoly
Dollars out of my kids game

#404 Dreamer on 05.17.11 at 7:27 pm

I got the letter today I just moved here and I got mail here with my name on it so weird. You can tell its a scam cause of the name and when u go on to the website u see fireman’s and nurses and all what does that have to do with a credit card and order catalogs. Wish people stop trying to scam people for there hard earn money and get a real job.

#405 Jackie on 05.19.11 at 9:32 am

I just got my letter yesterday 5/18/11. Its quite ridiculous. My husband & I were in a bad car wreck about a month ago & with the economy, time off from work, fighting the insurance company, no credit…the list could go on forever. Anyway there is absolutely no way this could have been real. I couldn’t even get personal financing to finance a $400 dog for me. So glad I didnt fall for this. Thanks to all who have posted to warn others.

#406 Liz on 05.19.11 at 10:40 am

Got the letter today, glad I looked it up! Going in the garbage.

#407 Evy on 05.20.11 at 5:56 am

I got the same letter and knew it had to be a scam because of my credit…$10,000 my foot!

So, glad I have internet to check these scammers out first.

As “they” say…if it sounds to good to be true…it is!

Hey, I like the brick idea!

#408 Danielle Ramirez on 05.20.11 at 7:32 pm

got mine today. i’m 21 and barely have any credit so i was like, yeah, $10,000 my a**. but every other offer i’ve received has packets and a preapproval number you can enter into the website and be approved. i’ve never had to send a check or money order for a membership because they normally just charge the card. HUGE SCAM! what’s even worse is that i showed my mom and she thought it was legit! i’m definitely going to do something about this.

#409 Kendark on 05.21.11 at 10:38 am

As others of said DON’T throw away the envelopes. Send it back — empty of course — and UWCS will incur the postage charge. If enough people were to do this it would certainly put a dent in their bottom-line. Who knows… might even close down this obvious scam.

#410 alice on 05.22.11 at 5:11 am

Got this letter yesterday. I have been receiving them (letters) periodically for years now. I guess they hope that I would one day fall for it. The only truth to come out of all this is that everyone must PLEASE RETURN THE ENVELOPE, even if it is empty. (I am a former postal worker). The return envelope is a “business reply” which means that THEY PAY FOR EVERY ENVELOPE THAT IS MAILED BACK TO THEM. And anytime you get something in the mail that encloses a return envelope with the words BUSINESS REPLY MAIL, the company is paying for return services. This is how you get them that’s trying to get you.

#411 Hector on 05.22.11 at 9:20 am

I too got a letter did a little reading and found this on the website it clearly says under the Frequently asked questions that you cannot use it at ATM or retail store that you could only use it though their catalog and affiliation that are listed in their website i just rip the letter up and called it a day and this website did help do a little more reading up on it i am glad that i didn’t send the money.

Wow. i can’t believe this…. really??? these people have got some balls. But i too was excited to find out that i have pre-approved for $10,000 (being that my credit is in the dumps and I am currently/slowly but surely building my credit back up). but when i saw they wanted ME to mail THEM $37, i knew it wasn’t right. That’s when i decided to google them.

Good thing i did. i hate scammers.

#413 Chyna on 05.23.11 at 8:13 am

also, i live in California…

IF you are referring to the Union Workers Credit Services offer for !0.0000.00 you just might be incorrect. My reason for comment is that I have paid the $37.00 by phone. I also received a membership number and have accessed the website with an option to purchase some of their items. So unless they’re really obsessed with my $37.00 I would have to say it’s not a scam because they exist, but I just joined , I too am not in the best of credit status, but I think because of my affiliation with my career job or the union I belong to,qualifies me to get this opportunity, as said I joined and I am now a member with a option to purchase, hope I’m not stupid. But check it out at http://www.unionworkerscredit.com, I’m not representing or defending only suggesting you might be missing out, because the site exists, and I joined by phone 214 424-6800 and was ready to purchase items the next day.

#415 DaVida Morgan on 05.24.11 at 8:15 am

I just received my letter in the mail today, May 24, 2011. The letter, although very professional, reeks of scam. This writer also does not use common phrases of the English language. Instead they chose “It’s nice to inform you” and “Your satisfaction is assured”. If people spent as much time thinking of something positive as they do coming up with scams, the world would be a better place…

#416 motiv8 on 05.24.11 at 4:56 pm

i got my letter today May 24… im so happy i looked on line scams……

#417 RefuseToBeScammed on 05.25.11 at 8:42 am

Well this morning is the second or third time I received a so called credit card offer from these folks. I live in Minnesota and there is no such Credit Union here, plus I am a stay at home mom so why would they send me anything?, I’ll tell you why….because it’s a SCAM. The letter looks to generic to have come from a real credit card company.

#418 SAM on 05.27.11 at 8:17 am

I got one today .how do these guys get our address and name correctly ? thanks for this forum it really helps.
dont know how these guys get our address

#419 DJ Mr Mixx on 05.27.11 at 12:54 pm

Just received mine today 05/28/2011… Why are these people still doing business? I’m sure some state or federal legal people have had been notified by now, whatever… Thanks All appreciate everyone taking the time out to comment.

I got this letter today and I am in SC I am a stay at home mom who applies for nothing so I knew this was a scam as soon as I opened it but decided to look it up anyway. I feel bad for those who sent in the 37.00 I sent a piece of dog poop in a ziplock in the perpaid envelope to them since people who scam others are pieces of shit!!!!!

#421 ohItIsAScam on 05.28.11 at 2:54 pm

Today 05/28/11 I live in Boynton Beach, Fl…I also received a letter from them…I checked out the website…bunch of other ads (red flag)….next thing…10,000 for a 5% APR..REALLLY!!! Thank God I checked it out on google…thanks to you folks, I am $37 richer…


#422 Jenni on 05.29.11 at 11:36 pm

This is all so pathetic when you think of it. Why people would still want or feel the need to take advantage of the lesser income family units like this. I have not received a letter yet, but my friend did As an ex-legal secretary, I know to read ‘between the lines’ and immediately advised her to keep her money. As for the postage paid return envelop - why not put a sticker over the address, write the addy to whomever and use it to send a bill that you need to pay that isn’t $37!!

#423 Master of Patience on 05.31.11 at 7:36 pm

Thank you all but I wish they would put CURRENT comments/complaints first in this list. I’ve been working to rebuild my credit and this came as kind of a shock. I’ve been around the block a few times and this offer would have helped secure my financial future with the investing I am getting ready to undertake but it would have certainly been a disappoinment had it fallen through. Patience pays off again and I am richer and wiser for your information.
Thank you all.

#424 james on 06.02.11 at 12:27 pm

got it today and knew instantly to GOOGLE it…..GOOGLE is god!!!!!!

#425 JC on 06.03.11 at 10:11 am


#426 asha on 06.03.11 at 3:23 pm

If i got approved for 10,000 why would you need 37 dollars. Just silly….and most people should know if they qualify for that much credit. And who wants another credit card debt in this economy. Not me…cash only please lol : )

#427 Sheila on 06.04.11 at 1:50 pm

I just got this letter today and immediately Googled it to see what the catch is. I noticed all the red flags others have mentioned as well as the fact that the title of the company is “Union Workers Credit Services”…and I don’t belong to a union. The name sounds like it’s something being made available to union workers as a perk because of their union affiliation. So why am I being extended credit as a union member when I’m not? They should do a better job of screening the people they’re trying to con instead of just sending the letter out to everybody in the country with a bad credit history.

#428 gn on 06.04.11 at 1:55 pm

thanks for the heads up

#430 Lindsay on 06.06.11 at 5:14 pm

I received this today and the first the that came to mind was to Google it! It’s unfortunate that they are still around and keep trying to scam people. Thanks for posting this :) Does anyone know how they got our contact info? I’ve been job hunting on Craigslist and wonder if they retrieved it from my resume. Sorry if my question has already been answered. I don’t have the time to scroll through all of the other comments.

#431 Jennifer on 06.06.11 at 8:30 pm

Ya..i got same letter today also..and i hadnt even read the entire letter yet and was googling and readin same time lol…i knew it was a scam just wanted to comfirm as well…we just all need to form some kinda posse and go hunt them down and whip some ass haha!!! Im also gonna send them a letter back with some fake money and a nice little piece of my 2 sense. It’s horrible ppl get away with stuff like this..seeing the ppl just on here the ones that actually didnt catch it its awful…Im very curious about ne thing i get like that now cuz i once to almost got messed up with a work from home program for stuffing envelopes…looked good till i got to the part bout please send 170 dollars to get ur starter kit and u will never have to pay ne thing else other than shipping the letter back to us but it will pay off wen u get ur 1st pay check of ne where from 600-1000 dollars a week lmao. it almost had me but luckly i didnt have the 170 dollars to get started at that point and time. I live and learn by google…Thank you google and thank all the others for posting these comments.

#432 Reggie3 on 06.07.11 at 6:17 am

I received a letter to i knew that it was a scam I’m glad that i checked it out. thanks

#433 lucky 1 on 06.08.11 at 4:36 pm

Just got mine in Connecticut. Thanks for the heads up!!

#434 Mike on 06.09.11 at 6:23 pm

Just got this offer on June 8, 2011 in Colorado. Looks like they are still at it! Why haven’t they been shut down I wonder?

#435 JB on 06.09.11 at 10:35 pm

I received the same letter from Union Workers Credit services on June 9,2011 in New York, NY.
It looked suspicious to me because they said in tiny words “credit provider is unaffiliated with MasterCard or Visa” , so I decided to Google it and I found this web site, I don’t understand how they get the address to send this fake letter offering you 10,000.00 credit limit, Thanks God I did not send them the 37 dollars that they ask for, this kind of things can only happen once not twice, 2 years ago somebody called me to my home phone and said that I won a vacation to Orlando Florida with all the expenses paid and all they ask for was 200 dollars for processing and shipping I gave them my debit card information and they took my 200 from my bank account, after 5 days I received a letter from them with a brochure and 2 online certificates one with 200 dollars and the other with 500 dollars, when I went online I realized that the 2 certificates were fake and when I called them the operator said that this phone number does not exist, I know that this has nothing to do with this topic at all I just wanted to share this with everyone so I can warn everyone from this fake company at the same time.
The name of the company is:
All Star Vacation Marketing Group
825 Brickell Bay DR.Suite #246,Miami,FL33131

#436 korey on 06.13.11 at 5:15 am

Hello, I had got this in the mail and paid the 37 dollars to try it and Its real Ive been getting stuff thru them out of the catologs that they send out to you.

#437 Silvio on 06.13.11 at 5:19 pm

These crooks won’t see a dime from me.

#438 Larry G on 06.16.11 at 5:02 am

Thank God for the internet and sites like this. I got the same letter last week, sat down at the computer to do some research on this Union Workers Credit Services and ended up at this site which promptly had me throw the letter into the garbage!

#439 BeachGuy on 06.16.11 at 11:09 am

My 10 year daughter got this same letter. I knew it was a scam, but decided to call their number to have a little fun with them. Unfortunately, its an endless phone tree with no real person to talk to. PEOPLE, avoid any solicitations that require money up front,,,they are all scams. Unless you asked for it, dont buy into it. I can assure you my daughter is not in a Union or ready for a credit card.

#440 bill on 06.18.11 at 6:11 am

everyone needs to e mail the texas attorney generals office

#441 Berkshire Lass on 06.18.11 at 7:23 am

It’s amazing this deceptive scam has been going on for years - basically if you pay the $37 you can buy from their catalog. I am surprised the postal inspectors has not closed them down.

No shortage of suckers, either, it appears.

#442 Cortnizzle on 06.19.11 at 2:59 pm

Thank got I just looked this shit up. >> Thought it was weird that I got approved for 10,000 when I cant even get a 500 credit card right now. Thanks a million for doing your research!!!!!!!!

#443 GR on 06.19.11 at 9:00 pm

Glad I Googled this - I shredded the darn thing. Thanks!

#444 tj on 06.20.11 at 9:11 am

ahahaha on there web page they have a GOOGLE AD :) FUCK U CREDIT UNION WORKERS!!!

#445 Larry on 06.21.11 at 2:32 pm

I’m glad I read this. I sent them $37 dollars when I was down and out with a full blown depression. They got me… I didn’t get anything back from them. They just got my money. The only reason why I remembered it is when they sent me another Approval for another card with a $10,000 limit. WATCH OUT PEOPLE… That is why America is going to $hit. Everyone trying to screw each other.

#446 miamigirl on 06.21.11 at 4:33 pm

I got this letter yesterday, 6.20.11. I could tell immediately this was a scam. Too bad its impossible to trace it!

#447 Daniel on 06.22.11 at 9:44 am

Thanks for the info reported it to the FBI sick of all this scam crap

#448 RALPH on 06.22.11 at 2:42 pm

I think we should hunt these type of scammers down and give them the real justice they deserve you harvest what you sow

#449 greg on 06.22.11 at 5:17 pm


#450 Eric on 06.22.11 at 8:30 pm

There has got to be legal action that all 2000000 of us could take. I mean don’t you guys think it is sad that a company can send out letter asking for money, with false promises, blatant untrue information. Just by looking on this site, they have stolen money from hundreds of people. Its out there and open its a scam yet they still do it through the US POSTAL SERVICE> its crazy

#451 Eric on 06.22.11 at 8:52 pm

I just showed the letter to my father who is a lawyer, and he looked at the site. There not doing anything illegal, just immoral, unethical scam practices, with well placed wording, and misleading comments.Letter states your approved for a “exclusive platnium membership from union workers credit services” goes on to say”guranteed 10000$ credit limit is valid TOWARD ANY PURCHACES FROM CREDIT PROVIDER SPECIFIED ABOVE”..then finally it goes on to say you will get details when you CARD arrives, , then in small letters credit provider is not affilaited with visa or mastercard,also notice it is blank next to the BANK AFFILIATION spot-so by leaving that blank and specifying the credit “LIMIT” not “LINE” is only valid to said comp, (unioncreditworkers) which is a catalougue service that charges monthy fee of 37$ you do get a credit limit to buy from the catalogue but it all hinges on paying 37$ and other fees, there goal is people send the 37$ thinking there getting a credit card, then they realize it isnt a card, they write it off as a scam and dont follow up. So a lawyers advice to all who paid, if you recieved anything use that to get in contact with them, and get a refund.**catch is you have to make a purchase to get a refund/but my father has looked at the fine print and said by law if you have proof of 37$ payment and 1 purchase , and it is whitin 60 days, they have to refund the purchase and membership money-just hope someone can get there money back, and karmas a bitch this company has something bad coming there way

#452 Tim on 06.22.11 at 10:03 pm

got the letter and knew it was a scam since they asked for no info, and wanted a fee up front. NNNOOO credit card will process without your info and all fees get added to the card and never come out of pocket.

#453 David IN CA on 06.23.11 at 8:29 pm

I knew this was a scam. I just got the letter today June 23, 2011. The fact that it wasn’t a reputable credit card like Visa or Mastercard I wasn’t even going to sign up. But thought I should google them anyway to see if my better judgement prevailed and it did. Totally a scam. I hate this kind of crap. Probably some elderly person on limited income will get taken and that is sad.

#454 john on 06.23.11 at 8:34 pm

I received a letter on june 16th 2011 I can’t believe they are still in business sending letters when I received a letter I went on google right away I hope someone can shut these people down my wife even said that the letter looked a little fishy And that’s why I googled it I normally don’t pay any kind of fee to get a credit card that was also a red flag when it comes to fees. it even look like a website that you have to purchase items from their website with their credit card . it now went directly to the shredder. thanks for googleTo let me know about this particular scam. When Something doesn’t look Right .always check out the company

#455 Shelbi on 06.25.11 at 1:42 pm

I just received the same exact letter today June 25, 2011. I too figured it had to be a scam and they just want to get your $37.00. Too good to be true. Glad I looked it up. Wondering though, is there anyone out there that did send the money and what happened?

#456 Shelbi on 06.25.11 at 1:46 pm

I just got the same exact letter today. Its June 25th. 2011. It looks good, legit, but something told me, its too good to be true and to check it out. Glad I did. I figured it was a scam. Hoping noone sent the money and got burnt. Always check out the company, I guess, is a good thing to do.

#457 joyce on 06.26.11 at 4:38 pm

my husband went and checked the mail today (6-26-2011) and because there wasnt a phone number decided to check it out…. just letting everyone no this scam is still goin on

#458 Brice on 06.28.11 at 10:40 am

Glad I googled this instead of going directly to the website, which I usually do.

#459 Chris on 06.29.11 at 9:31 pm

wow these assholes… somebody needs to catch them and fuck them up

My husband got this in the mail today, but it didn’t look right so first I went to the website: http://www.unionworkerscredit.com, but eve that didn’t seem right. I am going to play it safe and ignore this offer. I don’t “need” the supposed $10,000 bad enough to get scammed. Besides, how many credit offers ask you tp pay a fee ahead? Fees are usually applied to the actual account so the lendor can make more money on it!

#461 shelly808 on 07.03.11 at 3:38 pm

I am with you logicamerican!!! Yup, if republicans take over again we will see more and more scams like we did during da Bush years… lol california got ripped off big time with their electricity bills and fake rolling blackouts, the real estate scam which effected the WORLD, the Iraq war scam…all kinds of BIG scams. …They want less government & rules so they can RIP US OFF! They want to deregulate our country into a banana republic!! A corporatocracy so to speak….NOT GOOD!

#462 steph on 07.05.11 at 1:08 pm

The so called union workers. Credit services our at it again in florida got it today july 5 2011and seeing how im only 18 and currently unemployed I knew right away it was a scam but there getting smarter now they put a number on it 18778350969 so be careful people

#463 Will on 07.05.11 at 2:53 pm

Yep Steph….I got mine today also.
They look for people with little or no credit as well as bad credit. Those are the ones that want to rush right out and mail in their $37.
Warning. Anyone who asks for money up front is a scam artist

#464 teek on 07.06.11 at 6:01 am

I live in Alabama and received the same 10k credit approval letter. They asked for $37.00. I too am glad that I researched online and found this blog. I will send an empty envelope so they have to pay for postage.

Thanks for all the advise and posts!

#465 Willy on 07.06.11 at 2:24 pm

I got this bull shit last night so today I decide to look into it and when i saw there web site I knew that was a scam, anything that have to do with Union or credit banks they all end up on .org not . com…. so i knew it and I stared to google and I found out this,, thank God I didnt fall for it.. This need to be reported to the B.B.B.

#466 Wary Joe on 07.06.11 at 2:29 pm

LOL- received this today along with alot of other junk mail- I put all the VAL PaK coupons I received in the return envelope and sent it back! They fit perfectly.

#467 pragtyf on 07.06.11 at 3:55 pm

i sent them 1 cent ask them i dont want $10000.but i need only $500.

#468 shaaron on 07.07.11 at 5:27 pm

My cousin received this letter in the mail and wondered if he was still eligible as he is no longer with a union. I advised him to call and ask them first and saw no phone number on the letter. I offered to look up the web address online and get a number. It was then that I saw that this was not a line of credit or a credit card but an offer to purchase merchandise from their site. Suspicious, I googled the company name and came upon this site. My cousin will be mailing them back an envelope fulled with dirt!

#469 Mary on 07.08.11 at 7:03 pm

Great idea about filling the envelope and mailing it back!

I’m doing that too. I got mine this week-Monday July 6,


#470 anne on 07.09.11 at 8:30 pm

I have received the same letter but my exp date was jan. 2011 since I was out of the country I did not see it until now (july 2011) immediately I know that it was a fraud
1- they used my maiden name which I have not used for 22 years, 2 how did they get my info to qualify me
and also asking for me to send a check
usually the credit comp. will charge the fee to your card
My advise is anytime you have to send money out before receiving the card it is a SCAM

#471 panda79 on 07.10.11 at 1:35 pm

I got this same letter a few days ago and mine had a number on it, on the part that I am supposed to tear off and send back. Not like I’m gonna do that though! but the number is 1-877-835-0969. I called it and got a whole bunch of recordings and didn’t want to waste my minutes waiting for a real person lol. This is ridiculous and I am so sick of getting crap like this in my mailbox!

#472 Tim on 07.11.11 at 7:45 pm

Yea I got the same letter on 7/11/11. Did not seem right decided to Google it. Did not het sucked in thanks guys.

#473 Antione on 07.12.11 at 1:29 am

Got the same letter 7/11/11 called and spoke to a real person. They said I have to pay with a check instead of a card since you cant pay credit with credit. I went to the site and saw their merchandise. I think that if it is legit they are getting over on people because the prices are outrageous. I can get the the same mechandise at the store or on ebay for a lot cheaper

#474 That Dude on 07.12.11 at 2:06 pm

I got mine today 7/12/11. Dumb asses thought they could scam me. I sent the pre-paid envelope back empty!

#475 Karen on 07.12.11 at 2:17 pm

My Son just got one of these today! It pisses me off because young adults don’t know about these scams! Please if you have young adults warn them about these types of scams!

#476 cmat on 07.12.11 at 8:22 pm

I got the same letter, this is a strange letter and obviously there is something too good to be true. I would call them to say fu..ck you.

#477 Debra Keith on 07.13.11 at 6:28 pm

I got one of these today and I went to check their website and found this site instead. Glad I did!!!

#478 I Ain't No Foooo!! on 07.14.11 at 7:51 am

After reading over the letter carefully, it didn’t take long to smell the bulls#$t……and there’s no air freshener in sight! Debating on if I should send back some obscenity filled note……lol

#479 I Ain't No Foooo!! on 07.14.11 at 7:52 am

crap……pure crap

#480 haha im no sukka on 07.14.11 at 2:51 pm

good thing i looked it up i recieved this letter 7/14/11 and i was just gonna toss it but my hubby said look it up. i’m glad i did because this way more people are aware it’s out there. don’t fall for it.

#481 New Yorker on 07.16.11 at 1:32 pm

Nothing in life is free. If you have such good name brand products you would expose them. And if you are giving me 10,000 why do you need my $37 ?!?!?!? I don’t think so….

#482 Treemantwo on 07.17.11 at 6:34 am

Just received my letter from Union Workers Credit Services……..i am sending the envelope back with a 12 ounce fish sinker. If enough people did this their return postage costs would burn their asses. This is clear out and out fraud! Amazing in this modern world with all the technology available to investigators that this scam can’t be traced. Every employee that processes these scam offers should be prosecuted since they know full well what they are doing is criminal. Or……maybe a few burnt consumers need to go to Dallas and wait at the post office to kick some ass personally.A flood of calls to the post office that handles zip 75356-9691 would work too. Ask for the Postmaster and question the idiot as to WHY he is allowing this fraud to continue under his/her watch??? Yeah, that will work. Gonna do that tomorrow!

#483 michiaki on 07.17.11 at 11:47 am

I got the letter 7/17/11 right after a good Sunday sermon on God having more than enough to provide for His people and was happy that I got it. It’s a good thing I Googled it first or I would have fell for it hook line and sinker. Thanks. Los Angeles California.

#484 montez on 07.18.11 at 5:23 pm

I thank all of you for your comments and advice. Sorry to those of you who sent them the money they request form this SCAM. I recieved this letter today and thanks to all of you, im $37.00 richer. “LOL”God bless and good luck to all of you

#485 robertInMI on 07.19.11 at 12:40 pm

Have an idea for anyone who gets this letter. They ask u send them 37 bucks back right? Here’s the greta idea…they have a business reply mail account with the post office which means THEY PAY FOR U TO SEND THE MONEY back NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT WEIGHS. THEY GET CHARGED FOR EACH PIECES WEIGHT! STUFF THAT BAD BOY FULL WITH PAPER OR COUPONS OR A BIG F U AND SEND IT BACK! TELL THEM MFER’ S TO SUCK IT AND STOP GIVING THE UNION A BAD NAME! SHOULD BE CALLED FOX NEWS CREDIT UNION

#486 Maria on 07.20.11 at 1:49 am

Am holding this ridiculous letter right now being so upset I jusy wana know how I can file a complain against these scumbags! Them having all my basic information even saying they pulled it out to some credit company is just plain pathetic! Not to mention the $37 activation fee?! Well all I can say is…..kiss my Ass!!!!! I really really wana file a complaint! For reals!!!

#487 Troy on 07.20.11 at 7:32 am

I got this letter in the mail yesterday and because it did not ask for anything other than for me to sign it and send back $37 dollars, I had to investigate them. Thank you all for posting something to let others know it is a scam.

#488 Tracy on 07.20.11 at 3:58 pm

I got the same letter today. I checked it out on BBB’s website, who warned that they are not a major credit card; & that anything you purchase must come from their catalog. I’m not doin’ it! Round-filing it now. Thanks for this website to warn others about these scammers.

#489 Madison on 07.20.11 at 7:21 pm

I got this letter today. I see it has been circulating since 2009 so everyone look out for each other on this. Don’t get ripped off. These losers keep getting away with this but maybe we can all help each other prevent these scams from happening to people.

#490 VICKY on 07.20.11 at 9:34 pm

I got this letter but I was looking for internet information and I found this union is a scam. Thank you all for posting .

#491 Jennie on 07.21.11 at 4:33 am

I just got the same letter in the mail.. and I was like no way.. I don’t even have a job.. and the first thing that went through my head this got to be a scam.. so here I am wishing it wasn’t lol… cause there is so much that I could have done with the money.. including getting my self a job… grrrrr…. so to them I send a curse they will fall down and feel the pain of those they scam.. and they will suffer… BLESS IT BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#492 joe on 07.23.11 at 7:40 am

got one in michigan

#493 danny on 07.23.11 at 7:45 am

i got this great offer 8 months ago. used up all $10000 from their catalog and sold everything for $4000. It was just enough money to cover my expenses during my bankruptcy filling (lawyer+court fee etc). so thanks unionworkerscredit.

Just kidding:)

#494 GRACE on 07.23.11 at 4:56 pm


#495 Christina Bell on 07.25.11 at 12:16 pm

I too received this scam offer - Why hasn’t anything been done about them? They have been taking advantage of people for years!! Look at the housing crisis.. Sometimes the government should step in to stop shady crap like this, instead of butting into other things that’s none of their business - but they let bogus crap like this go on for years????!!!

#496 phili on 07.25.11 at 5:51 pm

thieves bandits watch out, pple r hush these days!

#497 roxanne on 07.26.11 at 12:06 am

#499 MM on 07.27.11 at 7:31 am

I also got my scam offer in the mail today from these rip-off jerks and just like most of you, I googled their “company” after getting bad vibes.
There is no excuse for this type of crap to be allowed to continue.

#500 Patti on 07.27.11 at 9:39 am

Got the letter today 7/27/2011..
I came to this country just 3 months back and got surprised by this letter. These kind of tricks are common in my country so did not fall prey to this..
Thanks to every one who posted here for the benifit of others.

#503 Jose Santos on 07.28.11 at 8:41 pm

I received my letter on 7-26-11 and immediately began my research and found this somewhere awful site reading many of your comments. The letter is going to the garbage where it belongs. Thanks for the warning

Just got my letter today; 7-30-2011. I’m not a member of any Union and I don’t have good credit, so as soon as I opened the letter I was suspicious. I’ve been working on rebuilding my credit ever since my wife and I split up, so I figure the only thing that makes me pre-approved for their $10,000 is that they bought a list of names with my name on it, and their hope that I was stupid. I’m sure they’re operating within the boundaries of the law since they have been in business for so long but nevertheless they are scamming people and probably preying on people struggling with finances like me. Who ever gets this letter should recycle it through a paper shredder. I would also suggest NOT calling the “OPT-OUT-NOTICE” phone number because it is probable just another way of getting additional personal information from you.

#505 Sgt Zale on 07.31.11 at 9:04 am

Thanks for the info we thought it was a scam also so googled and now know for sure.

#506 victro on 08.01.11 at 8:00 am

#507 gourdy on 08.01.11 at 5:35 pm

#508 Laney on 08.02.11 at 2:18 pm

#510 Marty on 08.03.11 at 5:47 am

I as well received this bogus crap today, I am taking the advice of many of you, and sending them back their pre-paid envelope (they pay the postage) loaded with all the other crap & junk mail I recieve on a daily basis, hopefully the post office will charge them in excess of the $37.00 they want from me, I think everybody who receives that letter should do the same, maybe they will get the message loud and clear!!

#511 Dan on 08.03.11 at 7:26 am

I got mine yesterday. The dead give away is that there is no affiliated bank or financial institution listed. Thanks Marty, I will take your advice and send it back to them suggesting they put it where the sun doesn’t shine.

#512 Enlightened on 08.03.11 at 9:57 am

I received this letter yesterday! Thank goodness for Google and the Internet. Always check things out first before you send any money. I will take Marty’s advice and mail it back to them in their postage pre-paid envelope with SCAM written across it.

#513 kia on 08.03.11 at 10:13 am

wow i’ve been waiting on this card for weeks and decided i was going to check the website for the number to c if they got my money and the whole time they dont even exsist what actions are being taken against these scam artist

#514 Dave on 08.03.11 at 2:17 pm

I got this letter today, first off i did almost play into it but then i saw the APR which made me laugh cause 5%, not even UAW credit union doesn’t offer that low of an APR. That was a red flag and the credit limit of 10,000 dollars. Seriously guys, Capital one only gave me a 500 dollar limit on mine what more a union credit card. Then to top it off the 37$ membership fee made it more suspicious. After a horrible day at work, i had a good laugh and thats probably all that this was good for :D

#515 ron on 08.03.11 at 3:30 pm

recd this letter today 08/02/2011 did send back envelope so they have to pay post office all should do the same

#516 Lor on 08.04.11 at 11:13 am

Take the return envelope they sent you, attached it to a brick and mail it back to them. They have to pay the postage. Serves them right.

#517 Tracy Hargraves on 08.04.11 at 1:36 pm

My grandmother lives with me and received this letter today. I was curious how they got her name for a union workers benefit program, since she never worked a day in her life. Went online and looked at the site it redirected me to. Then I found this site. Hang onto the letter people, makes great envelope stuffer if you receive collection notices. Just stuff it and any other junk mail into their pre-paid envelope and they have a little present they just paid to receive ;o)

#518 starving on 08.04.11 at 4:15 pm

i sent there self addressed envelope back to them with a note saying F.U.

#519 Andreea on 08.04.11 at 4:25 pm

So i had a feeling this was a scam the minute i saw they wanted $$.. i called their number (judging by responses, they didnt have a number before?) well, now they upgraded. i chose the option to terminate my account (even though i dont have one) and of course they said “we’re sorry, we’re unable to process this transaction”…no, duh! so i got the idea for another poster to send the envelope back to them with a nice little note that reads “the least you could do is pay for this postage for trying to scam me :)” i made sure to rip off my name off the letter too.

#520 Lar on 08.04.11 at 5:39 pm

I got the same letter today, it look suspicious. I stuffed the return envelope with religious tracks. I am glad I have no need of a credit card anymore.

#521 AA on 08.04.11 at 9:05 pm

I just received this today 7/4/2011, knew it was a scam but wanted to check how many people have been falling for it. I already shredded the letter it self while reading some of the comments . I still haven’t done anything to the mail-back envelop, so since reading that they pay for postage, i am so going to mail it back..with some EXTRAS for fun, but no money for sure hahaha.

#522 Random on 08.05.11 at 12:08 am

They really got to me with this crap so here is what I did… I made out a fake check and while making it, I decided that alone was not enough. So I crushed a hot dog bun, pissed on it, waited for it to dry and stuck it in the envolope with the check.

#523 Asad on 08.05.11 at 10:50 am

Thanks I received the same letter today 8/3/2011 and felt lucky after google this and found out from all of you.
Anyways thanks to everyone.

#524 Husna on 08.05.11 at 3:54 pm

I received this letter today ie the 8/5/11 and the $10,000 limit they were offering me made me think twice. I was surprised by the offer since I started my credit history only 2 months back. How could I get such a high limit on my CC even without having any solid credit information about myself?! Glad I googled this forum & saved my $37.

#525 MONIQUE M on 08.05.11 at 11:21 pm


#526 ski1939 on 08.06.11 at 11:02 am

Freeport, Illinois - received it today, sending their envelop back to them with 12 ounces of junk mail enclosed.

#527 Chris on 08.07.11 at 4:38 am

Thanks for posting this. I received my letter yesterday. The first thing I noticed was that there wasn’t a contact phone number. I also noticed that the said there was no bank affiliation and I knew it was not ligit.

#528 Stefanie on 08.08.11 at 9:22 am

I got one this past weekend, and at first thought it would be a great way to get into a house. Then, I noticed the page listing the APR, fees, etc. was missing… SCAM!
I like ski1939’s comment; return junk mail back to them in their pre-paid envelope! Ha Ha!!! I think I’ll do the same… as much as I can cram in there.

#529 right on 08.08.11 at 8:25 pm

Just got this in Independence, OR. Figured it was a scam because I work in the banking/finance industry and with a divorce, nearly foreclosed home and a credit score in rehabilitation, I knew there was no way to qualify for a 10,000 dollar loan/credit card.
Try harder! Lame.

#530 Pharmgal on 08.09.11 at 7:35 pm

Just got this letter today. Sounded good at first, but I noticed that there was no bank affiliation or a f……phone # and knew it. Thought I’d check online to see if they were ligit…of course not. They ought to catch these scammers and put them in jail to rot to scam hard-working americans. Thank God for this site!!!

#531 bren on 08.10.11 at 3:48 pm

I received a letter from these people years ago and sent them the 37.00 but never got anything. I got another letter today as I have for the past 3 years every couple of months. I got on the website and called the number hey have listed under contact us and spoke with someone. I told them that they had fucked me out of 37 dollars before and that it wasn’t happening again and that they could take me off their mailing list. When you call the number you have to press 1 for touch tone phone then press 2 then 3 for not receiving the packet. They will transfer your call with a very short holding time.

#532 Gail on 08.14.11 at 6:12 pm

my daughter recieved this letter i decided to look it up and foud all of you well nedless to say the envelope will be going back with expired coupons of all sorts

#533 shreveport, la on 08.16.11 at 5:04 pm

got this in the mail today, 10,000$ limit in purchases from them….. come on ppl pure bullshine! send the letter back empty.. scam

#534 kat on 08.17.11 at 8:53 pm

This does not look lagit!!! Glad i thought to check them out on line! They must be making bank from a lot of peeps!! I need to come up with a plan like that!!

#535 Carina on 08.17.11 at 11:31 pm

I got the exact same letter today. At first I was super excited. I just got a credit card from my bank and thought this is a cool offer. But soon after, I got suspicious. Googled it, found this and… well, thanks to everyone! :)
I’m just really shocked that the first comments here are from beginning of 2009 and their STILL at it!?!? Nobody shuts them down!?!? What the hell!! :(

#536 Michelle on 08.18.11 at 8:17 am

Just print out a copy of this website and throw anything else you can fit into the return envelope and send it back to them so they have to pay the postage due.

#537 Kym on 08.18.11 at 12:01 pm

These scammers don’t pay postage until they have something returned…….. postage is what $.44 a stamp. Each and everyone of us should write “NO THANK YOU” on the slip and return it! If enough send them back in, it will eventually cost them more than they are making!

#538 JC on 08.18.11 at 12:42 pm

Got the same letter today. Wil be posting it back to them as you suggested Kym. Thanks

#539 Torso on 08.19.11 at 8:35 am

Got one today, 8/19/2011. Knew from the get go it was a scam, but scams like these (and the mentalities of those jerks who run them) fascinate me so I’m doing some research on it. This company isn’t even union affiliated in anyway, makes me sick when people try and play with peoples trust like that. The fee is shrewd; just enough money that they make a good bit of profit, but not enough for someone to legally go after the company to get back. And I love how they don’t even mention (well, basically) that the card is only good for a catalog they (supposedly) put out, no doubt with greatly inflated prices. Though it probably won’t amount to much, I sent a fairly detailed report to the BBB.

#540 Ohio on 08.19.11 at 12:41 pm

8/19/11 Letter sent back with a picture of my dick.

#541 covina on 08.19.11 at 2:31 pm

i got this letter 3 days go 8/18/2011 there no number nothing is a scam ….i wish someone would get caught for doing this..

#542 rochesteririan on 08.19.11 at 5:55 pm

thanks a lots for the post.. my husband got the letter 8/19/11 . try to call. no respond… it is anything we can do to stop this kind of fake companies… God take control….. again… thanks…..

#543 Amanda May on 08.20.11 at 10:17 am

I have really messed up i have sent the 37 dollars off and now i see this life sucks but you know what its time for a law suit…

#544 cheryl on 08.20.11 at 10:40 am

after reading the enclosed letter, i will take this to my local FBI department for investigation!

#545 jason on 08.21.11 at 5:22 am

i just received asking for 37$ good thing i always check any credit card online to make sure that it will be good for me . sorry for those who sent that money :(

#546 Mrs. Hernandez on 08.21.11 at 10:42 am

I was just looking at all the compliants and I’n sorry for those who sent in ccash. I actually took this from my husband and thought I’d check it out and I took it to the BBB and seen it was graded an F. I’m so glad because he was going to send money and hope to hear back from them. Also I found out the 10000 is for their catalogs ONLY… Beware of these SCAMMs

Whoooaaa!. I did received the letter last week Aug-11. I like the return idea so it will cost some money to this guys….

#549 JB on 08.22.11 at 10:47 am

yes seriously, just got this letter 5 mins ago, its 8/22/11 and I’m glad to see this post! Thanks everyone for commenting too. I first looked up their “website”… and ya’d think if there giving out 10,000 out right and left then they can afford a nice web design haha…. it looks like it was made with MS paint!

#550 HRG on 08.23.11 at 11:48 am

Thanks you guys I just got the same letter with a ridiculous 10.000 approved credit. What a crap! I am glad I found this post! Keeping watching those scams.

#551 melissa on 08.23.11 at 11:51 am

i got this letter a day ago on 8/21/11and I’m glad to see this posted.knew from the start that this was a scam.I will file it with the papers that get burnt!

#552 Harold on 08.23.11 at 2:04 pm

i recieved this letter just the other day. i have okay credit the letter looks good yet no phone number to call to check out. i even look at web site, i print these complaints and mailed to the company with there postage paid envelope. plus even shred the letter they gave me and sent that to. no check, becarefull.

#553 sri on 08.24.11 at 7:26 am

I received the same letter yesterday. The first flag was that they did not ask for my social or age. Second flag very low APR 5%. Is this 5% APR for purchases/ Cash Advance / Checks / BT. Third falg is this fixed APR / Variable APR. I checked the website- horrible. This is fraud offer letter. Becarefull

#554 BrittWontFall4It on 08.24.11 at 4:20 pm

I recieved this letter today (08/24/2011), and when I first started reading, I was appalled that someone was finally offering me credit! Then reality hit me…I have horrible credit (red flag), there are no underlying credit terms on this paper (red flag), no contact information (red flag), bad wording (red flag), and CREDIT is issued due to a decent history of the such and NO “Processing Fee” would ever be necessary, especially upfront. Googling their name was the best thing I ever did. I am also receiving several Clearinghouse Sweepstakes but am not sure if they are affiliated. On another note: My boyfriend was also recently scammed by the NEW ENGLAND MINT when he sent in $59.00 for some uncirculated coins that he was promised to recieve. He sent his payment in January of 2011, and we have recieved nothing to this day. We called, and they refuse to service or send us anything! DO NOT FALL FOR THESE SCAMM ARTISTS! THEY RAPE PEOPLE’S WALLETS AND GET AWAY WITH THIS! THIS SHYT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!!!
We didn’t fall today :) Yay!!!

#555 Ken on 08.24.11 at 4:38 pm

It’s because it isn’t a credit card. It is a credit limit to buy their products in their catalog online. You pay the fee and you have the available credit limit they decided on for your account. I don’t have it, but if you just read the context of the letter, and then surf the website, you will see it is pretty obvious they aren’t seeing you a credit card to go out and buy a bunch of things. This is a simple pool of members able to get certain products for a better dead l than you would in other retail stores. Kind of like insurance, or….just what it is…a union.

#556 lokesh on 08.24.11 at 8:47 pm

I have received same letter today… got to know its scam on reading this article….thanks alot for the information

#557 Miss.Corbin on 08.26.11 at 2:05 pm

Man I just received the letter today!!! 8/26/11 An I am so glad I received it and googled this damn ish!!! I had a feeling it was a scam!! There is always some bum out here in this world trying to play scams to get money fukin losers!! Ish pisses me off!!! I’m glad I didn’t fall for it and send them the $37.00 WOW!!! I am so sorry for thoughs who fell for the scam and got for their $37.00!! God so does not like ugly so whoever is doing this scam will pay in the end!! But I’m googling what you can do to people like UWCS!!!! Union Workers Credit Union KEY WORD:: WORKERS LOL I’M UNEMPLOYED RIGHT NOW SO THATS WHEN I KNEW IT WAS A SCAM!!!!

#558 Ttodd on 08.27.11 at 1:00 pm

Received this letter twice now. Last time, I threw it in the trash. This time, I’m returning to them so they pay the postage back and telling them to stop scamming people! Return your postage pay envelope to them with the same letter they send and make them pay the postage back. If they wouldn’t stop mailing these letters then we will break them with the postage expense.

#559 MGoBlue87 on 08.27.11 at 4:55 pm

Also, there are no generic Unions that would have a service like this. Each Union specifically identifies itself. I also like the Bank Affiliation: None! Yeah, I want a credit card backed by that bank.

Greetings everyone,
My suggestion to all; we need to copy our Pre-Approved Platinum Credit Card letter before sending back the Business Reply Mail without sending membership fee. Then we need to report to our local FBI department for investigation! They will probably take an immediate and appropriate action before anyone becomes a victim again to UWCS Scam.
Please read notes on upper right hand side corner , To Opt-out of prescreened credit opportunities in the future you may call 1-888-567-8688.Details below in the prescreen & Opt- Out-Notice (last paragraph);
You have been “approved” for this Platinum card offer based on among the other things, information in your Credit Report. You were “approved” because you satisfied certain criteria, although this offer may be withdrawn subject to your continuing qualification. To be excluded from such credit opportunities in the future, call TransUnion at 1-888-567-8688 or write TransUnion Opt Out Request, P O BOX 505 Woodlyn, PA 19094-0505 or visit http://www.optout-prescreen.com. The credit amount referenced above ($10,000.00) has already been established as you pre-approved credit limit and your new Platinum activation.

It has been approved and probably this has been reported already for Credit Rating, very tricky and confusing. And also it’s obvious that one of the Credit Report Union/Co. received thousands of Opt-Out Request calls or letters and it seemed that they have noticed about this Scam since 2009. Is there anything that they can do to close this UWCS or UWCS, Inc. company? They should help consumers protect their Credit Reports and not just checking and rating or at least flash an advise. Hoping that by hearing or reading our comments, this will save our all hard worked pennies in the future. We need to make emergent action together to avoid another human being fall into as a Scam Victim to this (Scam) Companies and that they should not benefit any single penny from anyone of us. Wishing you all a successful and brighter future.

#561 JKC on 08.28.11 at 10:55 pm

I appreciate this website and I also took the advice of one of the other emails on here and used the pre-paid envelope to send them a nice letter back at thier expense. You may want to do the same, at least they will have to pay a little to for trying to scam so many hard working people!!

#562 ebr on 08.29.11 at 10:50 pm

received this letter today and thought there had to be something wrong. glad to see this information.

#563 Alex on 08.30.11 at 9:33 pm

The fact they’re not affiliated with any bank! That should be your BIG RED Flag right there. and there is no mention of SS# .

#564 wsc on 09.01.11 at 10:40 am

Has anyone recently been trying to complete online surveys for extra cash? I was on 1 site and am pretty sure their a scam because I haven’t been paid . I wouldn’t be suprised if they put me on a “stupid person list” and are working with these people, because I too got this letter in the mail today 9/01/11

#565 Rudy02 on 09.01.11 at 5:45 pm

I was wondering what I should do with this great offer. Then i read Post #540 by OHIO. Thanks for the great idea. I will do the same

#566 karen on 09.02.11 at 6:16 pm

I have the worst credit ever but on the mend. So if anyone offers me something i know its fraud!!!!!!! Thanks for the heads up.

#568 Mike on 09.03.11 at 4:13 pm

I sent them my 37 dollars and they gave me a $20,000 limit!!!

I bought a brand new car!

Just kidding. How is this legal. Were did they get my addy etc?

#569 Mike on 09.03.11 at 4:15 pm

after reading post I will send them some semen lol

#570 brandon on 09.05.11 at 8:01 pm

I just recd this letter and I knew right away it was a scam, Due to the amount of letters they got back and had to pay for they stopped with the prepaid postage. I will put a stamp on the envelope but they will have to pay the remaining postage for the weight of my turd a piece of bread and some mustard. I cant wait to see what there faces look like even though i will not because they are a bunch of cowards trying to rip off there own country, hahahha

#571 Mindy Way on 09.06.11 at 4:22 pm

I just got the letter today and get curious go online check and sure enough that a scam. Thank to whoever lost $37.

#572 Lillian Jasper on 09.07.11 at 8:32 am

i had received the letter from them a month ago and i just received my membership card now as i read on about it it states you can purchase anything name band ect. when you look on the website you can only purchase what they have on the website which is nothing.so i calls customer service and asked them why can’t i purchases nothing from outside the website and he tells me its not in the membership so what the hell am i suppose to do this union credit sucks i will never purchase none of that bull scape they have up there

#573 JoeInsider on 09.07.11 at 9:41 pm

Just received same exact letter. Thanks for heads up.

#574 Hazel on 09.08.11 at 8:54 am

I received a letter today and right away, I knew that it is scam, to double check, I googled it and I got here.

#575 Cautious Consumer on 09.08.11 at 2:25 pm

Got my letter today. My credit is not bad and I’ve been getting credit card offers regularly. Like everyone else, not seeing a phone number or the VISA or MASTERCARD symbol anywhere on the letter set off some red flags. No fine print on the credit percentage rates or space for you to enter your social security number was the legal red flag. All credit card applications and verification letters will have you provide your social security number, with that comes the mandatory legal language of how it will be used. All of that was missing.

Also, here in Minnesota we have some pretty tough consumer protection laws. I know because I was involved in some of that happening. This letter is a clear violation of the spirit of our consumer protection laws here in Minnesota and I’ll be forwarding it on to the Attorney General’s Office. One thing they do well is go after these fraudulent businesses, especially if seniors get caught up in it.

I’ll keep you informed.

#576 Sarihwaa on 09.08.11 at 11:10 pm

I just got the same letter dated Sept. 6, 2011. I was just curious and checking the name. I almost wrote a check of $37.00.

#577 Mallory on 09.09.11 at 12:00 pm

Got this letter today - Glad i looked it up. Called the number and it wouldn’t let me speak to a representative - i knew something was fishy. :))

#578 Steve on 09.11.11 at 12:55 pm

It looked to good to be true so I did a google search and found this site, and glad I did, thanks for sharing about this scam.

#579 Emma on 09.12.11 at 7:50 am

Yep! Google their scam ass… Nasty people out there!
Went with my gut feeling as well… the rest is history… the past.

#580 Phil on 09.13.11 at 1:11 pm

Glad I saw this website, wow, I called and found they don’t answer their phones or the numbers are not working. It’s amazing people like this go to such lengths to spend the money to advertise, ink, paper, envolopes then the poor folks who stuff the envolopes are maybe even being scammed, I hope officials do investigate this company at the very least and let people know for sure just what this company is really up to. The site, envolopes and letters just look too suspect for me to buy into. Thanks for the information! : )

#581 Phil on 09.13.11 at 1:17 pm

Just a thought, but if one returns the envolope back to the company, it may be a good thing to write a phrase that can be easily seen in large font like: “Postmaster, please investigate this company for possible mail fraud”. I don’t know if that will work but one thing is sure, they most likely won’t send you anymore letters. : ) This is a great website. Thanks again.

#582 Dee on 09.17.11 at 4:52 pm

I just got one of these letters today, 9/17/2011, and right away I new it was trash. Why would the $37 be refundable. Yeah, right.

#583 donna on 09.19.11 at 12:23 pm

My hudband got one today, I told him it was a scam, looked it up and sure enough here it is. I gathered all my junk advertisements and stuffed the envelope with as much as I could, it cost them money to have these mailed back so the fatter the better. If everyone does the same then it will cost them. Remember make them as fat as you can, tape it shut if you have to, oh and don’t send mail with your name on it. Sorry for all that have sent 37.00.

#584 sri on 09.19.11 at 4:49 pm

Do not do this stupid thing…

#586 cynthia on 09.24.11 at 11:06 am

I got the letter today, i am following Linda Lous advice, Thank you!!

#587 Rushabh on 09.25.11 at 7:45 pm

I got this letter 2 weeks ago, n good i looked into it..

#588 COMMON SENSE on 09.26.11 at 9:12 pm

Clearly if you mailed the 37 bucks you didnt read the letter. It is for credit purchases with UWCS only and is not for a multi-purpose credit card. Very Deceiving, very fake. These people have been posting for over two years and these people are still sending out these letters!!! Please if you receive a letter like this send a copy to your TV station and FILE A COMPLAINT WITH YOUR DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE… Most wont go through the trouble, but you should.

#589 ellen m on 10.03.11 at 8:05 pm

i got a letter today and knew it was a scam. i am turning it over to the local police.

#590 David on 10.04.11 at 12:40 pm

Always… ALWAYS do your research on ANYONE that ask you to send them YOUR hard earned money, I got one of these letters today.

The letter is full of red flags, what there banking on is people seeing the $10.000 credit limit and people just sending them $37 without looking into them.

Which sadly some people do, look at it like this VISA or Mastercard will NOT just give you $10.000 credit so why would some nobody company do it?

#591 Zina on 10.04.11 at 3:16 pm

10/04/11 Thank you everyone..I just got it and its in the trash can..Thanks to you! You saved me!

#592 Telia on 10.04.11 at 6:24 pm

Wow i just got this letter in the mail i immediately started to investigate them and found this i am so happy i followed my gut feeling. Never heard of them. Shameful how far people go to f*** over others

#593 Aaron on 10.04.11 at 10:57 pm

Wow i just got this letter in the mail today and i inmediately started to investigate them and to find out this, damn i am so happy i followed my gut feeling. I just can’t believe they have been getting away for so long. Can the FBI do something about it?…..

#594 Lorri on 10.05.11 at 9:55 am

Hi all, I received this letter today 10/04/2011. There are apparently some people with the economy as it is, who fall victim to this scam and it is truly unfortuantely that something is not done about this as I have read past comments dating back from 2009. I never take serious something I get in the mail such as this….if I did not contact a company/bank for credit….then I assume it is all “BS” and they are out to get over on me and others when times are so bad right now. They should be strung up by a noose.

#595 Wayne on 10.05.11 at 11:30 am

I just looked up the website … had the same curiosity … amount due $37. Then looked for … THIS … Some one should be able to do something about this since it’s been going on so long.

#596 erick on 10.05.11 at 10:24 pm

i got the same letter and am glad i gogoleit first i was going to fall for it thanks guys

#597 Sherm on 10.06.11 at 8:24 am

Just recieved the letter on 10-5-2011,it’s not enough people are having hard times and lossing everything they own, You get these jerks who pray on the less fortunate. Thanks for making people aware!

#598 streat on 10.06.11 at 11:01 am

#599 Jenn on 10.08.11 at 1:25 pm

They’re still playing their scamming games - I just got a letter in the mail today. I laughed and tore it up.

#600 Billie on 10.08.11 at 5:08 pm

Received unsolicited offer of $10,000 limit credit card on 10-08-11. Perhaps this should be forwarded to the Dept. of Labor and the Justice Dept.

#601 omar on 10.09.11 at 3:53 pm

Got this letter and now they have a phone # sow it looks more legit ans they also put the num of trans union and they put a (”opt-out-notice phone dont call it they get you that way to,please dont fall for this scam.

#602 amberbuck on 10.11.11 at 12:09 pm

thanks for the info cause i recieved mine today 10/11/11 and i figured i should look into it cause when ever something wants money its usally a scam!!! thanks for the info and confirmation of this SCAM … looking back on some of these comments i cant believe they are still scamming away…get a life

#603 pree on 10.11.11 at 6:56 pm

I received the same letter on 09/21/11.Then I brought it to my union official.He said it looks like you got a good deal.( I hate that MF)so I sent my hard working $37 to this blood suckers. That’s it.who ever do this scam should be in the hell with there kids and grand too.

#604 Sufferin'Succotash on 10.21.11 at 12:10 pm

10-21-11 and still at it. Good idea to send the empty letters back so they have to pay the postage. I’m going to put a sheet of paper in it that says “FUCK YOU!”

#605 Dotson on 10.21.11 at 3:18 pm

I received this letter Today in the Mail…. Please trash and continue to inform everyone that this is a scam….. Nothing for FREE!!!! It will cost you one way or another….

#606 Rey on 10.21.11 at 5:13 pm

I just received this letter today, 10/21/2011. They now have a number 1-877-835-0969. I called at 8pm on a Friday when I got home and opened the letter. No response, not even an answering machine.

#607 Catherine on 11.03.11 at 8:53 am

Thank God for Divine Wisdom. I definitely can use $37 in my gas tank than to send it to a scam company that wish to do my family harm out of a measly $37. I speak according to God’s word and clearly send out the law of reciprocity to whom ever is behind this scam. May God Bless you and correct your off base thingking, should be ashamed of yourself! Momma wouldn’t be proud!

#608 Jesse on 11.04.11 at 6:07 pm

Got mine today in St Louis. I have a good friend who owns a print shop. Checking in to having him print off about 5000 off the envelopes and mailing them in. Give a little bit back to these assholes.

#609 YH on 11.05.11 at 1:11 pm

Nov 5, 2011 - Amazingly still happening and obviously what they do is not illegal.
Please do not waste their letter and send them back blank with no check. Keep them busy that way and double their postage costs.
Spread the word please…..

#610 darshan on 11.07.11 at 5:53 pm

I also got the same letter. Thanks for saving my money guys.

#611 THEGOODGUY on 11.08.11 at 12:13 am


#612 BIG BILL on 11.10.11 at 2:43 pm

I received my letter today, been laidoff for three years been social security for one year and my credit is worth a 10,000 dollar platinum card are these people smoking crack or what? I can’t afford a case of heartburn. American people get ripped off and the government will not do a thing about it. they have been notified about this scam, it has been going on for almost seven years now. please stop these people and mail your letter back, they still have to pay the postage.

#613 Anti Scam on 11.29.11 at 11:26 am

Received my letter today. Too good to be true, after coming out of a short sale and depleting our bank accounts. This is a seriously bad scam, and I am going straight to Attorney General and Dept of Justice with this garbage data.

#614 Tina McCarter on 12.01.11 at 1:10 pm

I recieved my letter yesterday. I am glad I decided to google Union Worker’s Credit Union because if not for this post, I’d sent these worms my $37.00! Thanks to all for the heads up.

#615 Juan Williams on 12.06.11 at 9:22 am

I recieved the same exact letter last week. Glad I google it would have been mad as hell for getting ripped off.

#616 Ingrid && Allen on 12.09.11 at 7:18 pm

We got this letter and where so excited but then we noticed that it didnt say by when we would receive the card, then we googled it..got my hopes up for nothing…assholes!!

#617 The Duke on 12.13.11 at 12:36 pm

I am holding this exact same letter in my hand and knew
immediatley that it was a scam.
I was out of work for 1 whole year and was unable to pay
my bills, now my wife has terminal cancer and I am behind
on bills again.
I couldn’t get a library card let alone 10,000 in credit…LOL

#618 John on 12.13.11 at 1:59 pm

My wife just got this letter the other day. The name sounded familiar, so I told her it was a scam. Went onto snipes and the confirmed it. Attorney General for Nevada said, unless we spent money there is nothing they could do, except to refer me to the BBB of the State they are working out of.
The old addage Buyer Be Ware.

#619 Yogi on 12.17.11 at 11:18 am

12/17/11 and this scam is still alive and well here in Nevada. It’s a pretty obvious scam, since they don’t offer any details or legally bind you to anything. If they aren’t covering their butts, it is safe to assume you need to immediately cover yours. What makes me upset about this is that it has been going on for years it seems, and still no lawsuit. I almost want to send the a $1 check for them to cash, just so charges can can be filed. Of course If I wasn’t busy working my but off, I wouldn’t have “qualified” as a sucker in the first place.
But, to say it for the millions time THANK YOU for hosting a site like this. and in all sincerity, feel free to send me a paypal link, as I would be VERY happy to donate a few bucks ( I know hosting can’t be free) you for providing this for everyone.

#620 Yogi on 12.17.11 at 11:30 am

**UPDATE** OK, Actually read the doc and website. This is legal, although misleading , but they do stet all over that this is not a credit card, it is a credit for their overpriced catalog of junk. and there is, apparently, a $95 annual fee as well. Scam, but a legit(ish) one. I wonder if this isn’t better sent to congress members as fodder for preposed legislation in regards to misleading (even if factual) advertising.

#621 Dee on 12.19.11 at 9:59 am

SMH…I wish I would of read this b4 I sent my money off, I’m pissed!!!

#622 Larry K. on 12.19.11 at 11:38 pm

SCAM!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!!
Received this letter today. Tooooo good to be true, so I knew it was scam. FREE cheese is only in the mouse trap!

#623 biggbb on 12.20.11 at 5:47 pm

scfew you idiots union workers scam- knew it right away so googled it-fu idiots

#624 James on 12.31.11 at 11:26 am

Sent in original form without the money. I was surprised they did respond back still asking for the money. It was not very official either. What a SCAM

#625 Roger Gast on 01.01.12 at 12:28 pm

Iam glad I looked into the comments about this scam. Since I am a Union Carpenter I thought at first it was a real offer. I am glad ther are people who keep these scam artists honest and keep others likeme from making a financial mistake thatI will regret. Thank you all for your most valuable information and keep up the good work. L.U. #444 Omah, Ne.

#626 Vic on 01.03.12 at 3:07 pm

Still a SCAM with new address below:

Union Workers Credit Services
1327 Empire Central
Suite 130
Dallas, Texas 75247

Anyone in the Dallas area may want to pay them visit!!!

#627 John on 01.04.12 at 8:51 pm

I’m sending the letter I got today from these fucktards to the postal inspector. They can go pay them a visit for me.

#628 John on 01.04.12 at 9:25 pm

Man, I sure am glad I used a junk email address for this bullshit website. I was SPAMMED BY THESE ASSHOLES!!!!

#629 Teri on 01.06.12 at 9:07 am

I just received a letter from Union Workers Credit Services. I had a gut feeling it was a scam. Sure enough when I got on the internet I found this website. Yep! A scam

#630 Rafael on 01.14.12 at 2:23 am

I have shit credit…not even approved for a credit card from ANYWHERE and I’ve tried…still i got this in the mail….not only did the offer seem bogus in my situation the print quality of the lettter was as if someone set the poor/quality fast mode on thier cheapo printer….THERE IS a phone number but that doesn’t mean its legit….there are lots of BS companies that pass off as legit with an 800/877 number. Thanks goodness for the internet. In fact this is the only company that offers to REFUND the membership fee after you make a purchase… lol I’m not even a “Union Worker”…they probably tried to pick the most VAGUE title that would include the most number of poor gullable souls…..the unskilled laborers…

#631 MrJamesDc on 01.17.12 at 1:52 pm

I new it was a scam when I noticed there was no catalog not even a simple add. I was temped but felt it best to google it. Sure enough there website doesn’t even give you a preview.

I’m better off with fingerhut or qvc

Thanks all for your postings they help give confirmation

#632 Ben on 01.18.12 at 8:35 am

Thank for this blog. I received the same and was shocked pre-approved with no question asked. As mortgage broker, I am aware of the credit lines and limitations. Although I was tempted to get $10,000 at 5% APR (as it sounded to be too good), I did some research and I am pleased of this amazing live Eco-system created by internet that allows us to communicate freely. Thank you all for sharing your experiences.

#633 ttsnuffy on 01.19.12 at 1:12 pm

I got the same letter. Being that the first post was in 2009 and now it is 2012 you would thing the BBB would have shut them down or something. but when I looked for a phone number to confirm the 5% (because that is usually BS on a CC offer.) there was none. that seemed odd to me. typed the name in google and got one active website for them and 100’s of scam warnings.

#634 geruld on 01.20.12 at 9:26 am

Yes its scam…but what if it wasn’t? Why doesn’t some company/fatcat undercut the damn c.c. companys like Citi Bank and Bank Unamerican….why not? Seems to me a lot of money is on the table….and someone with a lot of money could pick it up.

#635 Ockev on 01.21.12 at 2:35 pm

Just got the letter today 1/21/12….I knew it right off the bat…I haven’t been affiliated with a union in 5 yrs and that was when I lived in CA (now in FL), also no bank affiliation….REALLY??….freakin’ jagoffs!…Googled it anyway just to see…glad so many ppl out there are not falling for crap like this. Maybe we should all forward the ‘offer’ to our local news channels/papers and let them hammer these fools…after we mail an ‘FU letter’ back to them in the pre-paid postage envelope.

#636 Emil on 01.22.12 at 8:48 am

Well apparently they are at it again (in FL). Just like Ockev above me, I got the same letter (01-21-12) and of course it looked too good to be true so my favorite google search of “company name scam” brought me here.. I’m glad I saw this and saved me $37!

#637 Mr.James on 01.24.12 at 8:14 am

I live in South Florida and I got the same letter 1/21/12. I thought anything is possible so I did my research SMH.

#638 Wubbzy on 01.24.12 at 11:14 am

I got the letter today 1/24/12 and knew it was a scam. They can’t even fool a random Louisiana person,,,,,WwowW,,,,,GO LSU

#639 Diane on 01.24.12 at 6:24 pm

Got the same letter. Wonder what c.c. could it be if it wasn’t affiliated w/ Visa or Master Card, other then A.M. I don’t know very many companies that take anything outside the 3 major ones. called the # to verify, & only get automated info w/ the request to enjoy the service hurry up & send in my offer along w/ my 37 dollars. Could never get a live person on the phone…all other c.c. services I know of have live operaters. Don’t fall for this SCAM!

#640 Diane on 01.24.12 at 6:42 pm

Oh forgot to add I’m sending them back their offer with the envelope filled w/ a bunch more junk mail in it :), I want them to pay more then the 37 cents 1 little letter costs.

#641 Ron on 01.24.12 at 6:51 pm

My hubby received this same letter on 1/23/2012! He has NEVER belonged to a Union Workers Credit Workers. I read one post that said their credit score was a -3…and I think ours is a -3…so impossible for us to receive a $10,000 credit limit. So glad that I googled it and found you superheroes with all the comments regarding this scam.

#642 whyscamintodayeconomy on 01.26.12 at 4:38 pm

I received this letter today 01/26/2012… Im glad I looked into this before I sent them my money… I just don’t understand how they could get away with running this scam for years now… Why hasn’t someone tracked this source down and imprisoned them for years of fraudulence… I understand its just 37 dollars which is i guess a misdemeanor… But not when that 37 dollars is timed by the 1000’s of people this has effected… Glad i didn’t become a victim…

#643 whyscamintodayeconomy on 01.26.12 at 4:43 pm

Also forgot to add I live in NY… Guess this is happening all over the U.S.

#644 ohhellnaw on 01.27.12 at 7:55 am

I just received this letter yesterday and never saw anything asking for a SSN so I went to Google it to confirm my suspicions it wasn’t entirely true. It also states its not affiliated with any bank. Visa and Mastercard are. I’m gonna print off a phoney check and send it to them signed by Smart Ass. Lol. Let them pay the postage.

#645 Notadummy on 01.28.12 at 6:42 pm

Thank you Google! Best tool EVER!

#646 tahea on 01.29.12 at 5:40 pm

I received the same letter on Friday, January 20th, 2012. The fact that they just wanted my signature raised a red flag for me; they did not even ask for any other information.

#647 scott on 01.29.12 at 11:17 pm

i got one too and wanted to believe it but knew better glad I came here to read all about these jerks. its kinda like fingerhut credit card over priced merchandise that has way too high interest rates. go for a secured cc i got mine thru USAA and its 35 a yr period. I trust USAA or your local bank only. build up your credit pay each month and get a regular cc to build it up more, leave a credit limit open make small purchase and pay it off. btw for liability i pay 430 for insurance a yr and 6 for roadside assistance i love them best company ever. only good thing i got out of the ARMY lol

#648 Carolyn on 01.30.12 at 5:40 pm

Received this same letter a week or so ago, made a notation to CHECK FOR PHONE NUMBER and threw it on my “to do file.” S-o-o-o, today in my on-going effort to eliminate paper, looked into UWCS and found this site like all of you. Although I am not inclined to send $$$ to people I don’t know, the lack of credit card availability would be real helpful in eliminating a negative bank balance each month. I am in the process of filing bankruptcy and you can only imagine how much has gone awry in my life the last 3 years. So, like you, I can say “gotcha” and lol at UWCS. However, let’s be mindful of others who won’t be compelled to check things out and know that harmful, hurtful tactics will always be with us from the greedy and the selfish.

#649 Carolyn on 01.30.12 at 5:43 pm

#650 John on 01.31.12 at 4:12 pm

I been having this letter for a while but did not send in $37.00. Generally, if you get a pre-approved credit card offer, you have to fill out a mini application generally at the bottom of the letter & never ask to receive money from you as a rule of thumb. I have good credit but not spectacular credit & the legit pre approved offers are generally between 10%-25% APR. So I knew that USCS was BS when I received this letter.

#651 Jeff on 02.02.12 at 8:42 am

I got the letter a week ago and wasn’t sure about it. So I called my business agent and he said he has nothing to do with it and for me to be careful. So then I went online and found out for sure it’s a scam. Screw that! They’re not getting any of my hard earned money. Thanks to you guys for confirming my suspicions.

#652 Candy on 02.02.12 at 3:12 pm

I recieved this letter today 02-02-12. I was wondering why in the world did I get this letter if I’m only 18. But thank God I searched it first before I actually sent the $37.

#653 Clint on 02.03.12 at 1:06 am

Im from Hawaii and got da same letter..first flag before I even opened…”Union WOrkers Credit Services”…y first n big flag,I’M NOT UNION…hahahahaha pls try again..make sure everyone report this to officials n ur banks ..Aaaaaaaloha

#654 Reynold Harnarine on 02.03.12 at 3:19 pm

I received a letter in Tampa Florida today 02/02/2011, it sure looks legitimate but with no phone number and no appilcation it is quite suspicious, especially with the $37 up front fee.

#655 ose on 02.03.12 at 6:17 pm

United states should be after these people instead spending money with having police officer sitting in the highways waiting for good workers and good people that get up early to go to work!!! But law doesn’t support a good citizen anymore…is a shame!!

#656 Louise on 02.03.12 at 10:31 pm

I also received this letter a week or so ago and can’t believe this scam has been going on for years! And in so many different states (i am in Michigan). This is not the first time I have received scams so looked it up and found this site. Thanks to all for your input. I have been in touch with the FBI, Federal Attorney Generals, Post Offices, local state police, and even London Yard ,as one on the phone scam said they were insured thru them. LY said they knew about it but was not able to catch them, at that time( 2years ago.) And as to the ones who have posted that it is a mail order business, it is one that I sure wouldn’t want to do business with!
They will be getting my envelope back, stuffed full, but without the check. Keep up the good work and again my thanks.

#657 Louise on 02.03.12 at 10:58 pm

I apologize. I misspoke myself in my earlier post. It was not London Yard I spoke with 2 years ago. It was Lloyds of London. Sorry about that.

#658 Lester on 02.04.12 at 8:24 am

I just got the letter yesterday. But I was dumb and made out the money order, I didn’t send it, but I might as well have done it. Money order is useless to me now.

#659 Asish on 02.04.12 at 10:40 am

Thank you very much for making me aware. Thank god!! I searched before sending a check. What Govt is doing to stop these scams? I learned a new lesson today. I have to research before sending any checks to such free promotions.. They are “f”ing shits in the world.

#660 Sylvenous French on 02.04.12 at 2:15 pm

I google the info and saw the info about the scam. I did have a gut feeling about this before i google this. There was no application process which sent a red flag. Be on the look out

#661 Raghu on 02.05.12 at 7:23 pm

I got this letter 2 days back…i was suprised by seeing the credit amount they offered.I looked at here..this helps.

#662 Carolyn on 02.05.12 at 7:27 pm

These people are retarded to think that I would fall for that. When a furniture company won’t give me credit to buy a new bed, how can someone give me a 10,000 credit card. As I saw in an earlier post I think it is worth the few cents of paper and send a lot of blank ones. As many as I can fit. Just so they can pay more money for postage;-> he he I will scam them before they will ever get me.

#663 Carolyn on 02.05.12 at 7:40 pm

So I made a different decision to send them two of my thickest and heaviest coupon inserts with every coupon defaced and a note on the front “TRY USING THESE IF YOU NEED MONEY THAT BAD DUMB *SS!”

#664 Mark on 02.06.12 at 2:41 am

Got one of these letters; too good to be true! Carolyn, I love what you sent them, awesome thinking!!!

#665 phil on 02.06.12 at 2:47 pm

Just arrived in the mail, same letter .
who are these people
and how can they be held accountable? surely there must be some way to fight this sort of carnivorisim on those of us who still trust and believe in the kindness of human nature.

#666 Kaye on 02.06.12 at 3:04 pm

Got my letter and called on the day my response was due. I was told it wasn’t a problem, I actually had another 60 days. ThankGod! I saw this union workers credit services scam under related searches and checked it out before agreeing to their offer.

#667 Quest on 02.06.12 at 4:47 pm

I sent back an envelope LOADED with Escort Cards and flyers i collected from VEGAS , they called me back threatening to sue me hahahaha TRY IT!

#668 vodkavictim on 02.07.12 at 10:41 pm

so i just got a letter from these guys on 2/7/12 decided to Google it and glad i did,so i saved the return portion of the letter and put it in my bathroom will use it to wipe my ass with then i will preceded to mailing it! I think everybody should get together and maybe follow my example, although a bit immature and disgusting but it sends a strong and smelly message to these scamers, so lets all save the world one shit at a time:)

#669 MAO10036 on 02.08.12 at 1:32 pm

Just sent the postage paid envelope back to them empty. These scam artists will have to pay return postage. At least the U.S. Postal Service will get some needed revenue.

#670 Kenni on 02.08.12 at 2:49 pm

Kenni in MD got one today 2/8/12….this is plain foolery!!! I knew it was bogus bcause there was no contact nfo.

#671 KCBUTCH on 02.08.12 at 9:19 pm

2/8/2012 I too just received this letter and with ONE google search found this scam notice… It was pretty obvious that it was too good to be true-CC card companies cannot pre-approve you for a CC you have never applied for…

#672 Alexis on 02.09.12 at 4:45 pm

I recieved my letter today and something told me to check it out online. And look what I found. Thanks for looking out everyone. I recently applied for a payday loan and I guess they gave my info out. Not getting 37 dollars from me!

#673 KMartinez on 02.09.12 at 9:42 pm

My Husband got one in the mail and I always open his mail and I saw it and thought it was a scam. He just threw it at me now and said what do you think of this? So I started to google it and with googles guesstamation I saw scam and well I showed him all your guyses responses! ^5 and good looking out for eachother!

#674 Kx on 02.10.12 at 3:21 pm

#675 Paul D on 02.12.12 at 9:05 pm

you should have known it was shady when there was not any affiliation with a know bank:

who’s going to issue and secure the credit?????


#676 Tammy M on 02.14.12 at 12:33 pm

I just got this letter in the mail… OH Boy what a great Valentines Surprise…..NOT. I knew this was just way too good to be true….These people are crazy and are wasting alot of peoples’s time and not to mention all the poor trees…..

#677 megan on 02.14.12 at 1:39 pm

#678 Angelo on 02.14.12 at 4:19 pm

I received my letter in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on February 13, 2012. I knew this had to be a scam—had to look it up, just in case, and I think it’s awesome that there are message boards like this to warn future people to not get suckered into this. Keep it up!

p.s. Someone should burn this company to the ground

#679 Carri Crawford on 02.15.12 at 9:22 am

LOOK OUT. I received my letter 2/14/2012. Looks like their starting up again. Same letter, same $37.00 member fee. Thank you everyone for the thumbs up…

#680 shakespeare on 02.15.12 at 4:35 pm

#682 Lc from CA on 02.16.12 at 2:28 pm


You know what they say about things being “too good to be true”……they usually are…and this is….these guys are scammers and should be severely penalized for this. DONT FALL….!!!!!! crooks…..i cant believe they have been allowed to operate for so long

#683 phil on 02.16.12 at 3:03 pm

Sounds too good to be true…it always is.

I just got the letter today. I too am glad that I googled this letter to find it to be a fraud. I did notice after reading a couple comments, that there was no good phone number to call. So by chance I reverse looked up the unionworkerscredit.com domain and found some additional info on the company. Including a different phone number (2144246800) than what’s on their site. Don’t know if it’ll help any but here’s the link: http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/Unionworkerscredit.com

#685 Stephen on 02.17.12 at 11:02 am

Could tell the letter was a phonie right away just looked fake I say we catch the bastards ourselves and take the money they made back ourselves and send them to jail for LIFE

#686 alvis6364 on 02.17.12 at 1:00 pm

Same letter received today 2/15/2012, same crap as everyone else on here, glad I looked it up.

#687 Dcmarvelhero on 02.17.12 at 4:11 pm

I received the letter today. I googled it and found this web site. So I have mailed the letter back with a signature, but no money. It is a self-paid envelope so they will at least have to pay the postage.

#688 Dis-shit-Kray on 02.17.12 at 8:02 pm

just recived the letter today. Same Red Flags that got everyone else’s attention got mine. Still glad I googled this bullshit. It’s a shame 2 think these people are still running rampid with this fraud and no one has been caught yet. How can we have these people investigatetd??

#689 Brian on 02.18.12 at 7:04 am

I just got my letter in the mail yesterday(2-17-2012) and thank God I looked up the website first.I knew something was up when I never applied for the card in the first place.I’m sending Acopy of my letter to the BBB and let them have their fun with it.

#690 THAT WILL GIVE THEM THE RUNS on 02.18.12 at 7:52 pm

#695 Mike on 02.21.12 at 5:17 pm

I got mine today, first thing I did was google the companies name. I got divorced two years ago and as a result suffered some bad credit…at this point I shouldnt be receiving any credit offers seeing my debt to income ratio is above 40%.

#696 Latigo1026 on 02.22.12 at 11:30 am

Buyers Beware: The scam is still going. Received the same letter today — Feb. 22, 2012.

Why hasn’t the Texas Atty. General shut this operation down?

#697 Matt on 02.22.12 at 1:21 pm

Got burned too. Class action anyone?

#698 Jeannette on 02.22.12 at 1:48 pm

Received a letter today 2/22/12 to one of my tenants at the independent living center where I work. Luckily my elderly tenant brought it in to me and I found this site for him.

#699 Thomas on 02.22.12 at 4:18 pm

They’re now on the east coast. I got the letter early February 2012 and didn’t suspect a thing because I recently been getting credit cards offers and requesting those cards no problem. I wasn’t going to get a forth card but thought I could consolidate the $400, $1000, $1500 nearly maxed cards onto one with lower interest. They took the money on the sixth, I waited, and on the 22nd. I googled them. I typed in” union workers” and the search engine popped up “credit services scam” for me. I should have known. My credit score isn’t nearly good enough for a $10000 credit limit. Hey but maybe these con artist are getting peoples names and address from a list of recent card recipients from repitable companies.

#700 karen on 02.22.12 at 8:00 pm

Im not sure which had my adrenaline pumping hotter. The 10,000 offer or finding out how long UWCS has been scamming. really mr government,how long are you going to allow this to go on? this is equal to obtaining money under false pretence, in which I would get a criminal conviction of 5+ yrs in state penatinuary, really how much time would i get if I just choked the living dollars out of these swindlers. as #697(matt) suggested lets form our class action and act as #34(jake)would have all of us do…….return empty envelopes. thanks to all my googley friends i have just put 8 gallons of gas in my minivan. good looking out people

#701 Nana on 02.23.12 at 6:06 pm

My husband just received the same letter in the mail. It looked too good to be true so I decided to do some research. I’m glad we found this site before sending them anything.

#702 Bridget on 02.24.12 at 3:36 pm

I just got the same letter on 2/24/2012, so they are still out their so be aware and check things out with the BBB. You dont ever have to pay up frount for a credit card. This is a scam!

#703 Laura Miller on 02.25.12 at 12:00 pm

Yea got my letter regarding sending $37. and get $10,000 Visa account. Glad I checked them out! These people should be sent to prison for scamming!

#704 Bill on 02.25.12 at 1:02 pm

Got my letter today. I mailed their envelope back empty. They pay the postage!

#705 Mike on 02.25.12 at 2:35 pm

I recieved my letter today and looked on here thank god. But I put a letter in it saying F### OFF SCAMMERS and sent it back thank you guys.

#706 Mary on 02.25.12 at 7:10 pm

Feb. 2012, got my letter today. Yeh, they have a website but you cannot access anything. I thought it look To Good To Be True and it usually is. I like Bill’s suggestion, mail back the envelope and they pay the postage.

#707 Melissa on 02.26.12 at 7:56 am

Thank you for providing this information. I thought this was too good to be true and am relieved I took a few moments to research it. I am giont to notify the Attorney General in Dallas, and make a report to the Better Business Bureau. This has to stop.

#708 Fred Flintstone on 02.28.12 at 2:14 am

I mailed them a cat turd

#709 Tabitha on 03.03.12 at 11:19 am

I got my letter today(3-3-12) LITERALLY 10 MINUTES AGO. My first thoughts were hmm this looks nice. But wait Im not a union worker… Ok and hey wheres the contact number to call? Well let me go to their website and see what this is about (google search…. Scroll down… Finds this website) thank you to whoever posted this page. Im glad I didnt fall for it and was smart enough to do some research. Hopefully everyone who receives this letter will be as lucky.

#710 km2830 on 03.06.12 at 11:33 pm

YEP, GOT MINE TOO! YIPPEE!! I figured it was scammish. (sniff sniff) I could smell the stench of SCAM! Wait a minute PAY for a PRE-APPROVED Card!!! LOL! Yeah right, why do you think I need the credit in the first place?!! DUH! They have been running WAY too long I see! For those of you that paid, don’t feel bad we ALL learned our lesson from ONE scam or another. I know I have in the past! ANYone else? >:-[

#711 Fatima Moutray on 03.08.12 at 3:36 pm

I just got the same letter today, I was surprised that they were asking me for the $3700….so, I investigated and YES, they are a SCAM company.

#712 Brian F on 03.08.12 at 6:32 pm

Got this letter today. I have one credit card…with a $300 limit. $10,000 seems legit, especially since I didn’t do anything at all to get this “platinum” card. I’m so glad I’m not that dumb. Sorry for those who lost their money. But does anyone else want to call them and troll on them?! Let’s just ask crazy questions and be rude. This is the number they gave me: 1-877-835-0969

#713 hukiworld on 03.10.12 at 1:53 am

hahahaha yeah i received this eggsact letter today and knew it was fake immediately from the texture of the letter- felt like my printer cheap paper… no customer service number to call immediately, everything just looked so generically copied. i sent them “money” but not human bean cash hahahahahahaha LMBO!!!! i wish i could see look when they open my letter thinking they scammed another egg hahaha yokes on them now!!!!

#714 Daniel on 03.10.12 at 5:45 pm

Just joining the party of the scammed! going to mail back a empty envelope so the company gets charged

#715 Joni on 03.12.12 at 6:33 am

Tony Clement left a comment on here read it, sounds like he is the scamer. Someone call your local news they can help bay news nine got all my money back.

#716 Alyce on 03.13.12 at 6:04 pm

I got a letter like this the other day and looked exactly the same as the one above, in Pittsburgh, PA. I was getting ready to buy into it until someone told me to google it because 10,000 dollars is just too high for me to get accepted for with my credit, and being a stay at home mother of 2, and I’m deff not a union worker. Tony Clement does sound like the scammer since he just put the contact information up and that’s it, sounds pretty shady. Please lets get these people reported!

#717 Kore79@mail.com on 03.14.12 at 8:37 am

Man, i sent the money……..No response back, if you have heard back plz email me… thx

#718 Deanna on 03.14.12 at 10:49 am

Thanks ! I live in St. Paul MN and I got the letter in the mail yesterday. What a bunch of BS. There is no address or contact number. I need to report this to my Attorney General for Mail Fraud.

#719 Cruzer on 03.15.12 at 5:00 pm

Dang - could have used this! I would have felt really stupid if I sent them my $37. I hope these guys all serve prison time

#720 phuynh on 03.16.12 at 10:43 pm

I received the same letter on 03/16/2012. The fact that they just wanted my signature raised a red flag for me; they did not even ask for any other information.
I did send back to them the empty envelop with 10 A4 papers and put in there a litle my dog sh** ha ha ha , so they can smell it. thank for every one.
* Why dont we repot this to MR. OBAMA ?

#721 Stephanie on 03.17.12 at 9:41 pm

Received this letter 3/18/2012… Glad I googled and was amazed by how many comments were here! State verified: MA… If its too good to be true it probability is!

#722 RON on 03.18.12 at 10:41 pm


#723 Brenda on 03.22.12 at 2:16 pm

So glad I googled this to find it was a scam! Thank you to those who put out the warning!

#724 chris on 03.23.12 at 5:44 am

I got one of them letters in pikeville ky yesterday I was trying to see if this was true thanks for posting this 3/21/12

#725 alice on 03.24.12 at 2:51 am

#726 RD on 03.26.12 at 5:01 pm

Yep, thanks to all of the above people who posted their warnings, received my letter today from the 1327 Empire Central Suite 130 Dallas, TX address. I’m going to follow the advise of a previous poster and tape the envelope onto a cardboard box that contains a pile of shit and mail it back to them using their postage paid envelope taped to the outside of the box. Carry on the good works everyone, we’ll get’em in the end!

#727 Heather on 03.28.12 at 5:28 pm

I got the same letter I sent them fake money lol……

#728 slowleec on 04.01.12 at 3:54 am

my credit is so bad I couldnt understand anyone taking their chances . so I looked it up and yes its the same letter. I was thinking they may give you that credit legally but never let you use it.
Trust in Jesus not in the world today.

#729 Charles on 04.06.12 at 1:28 pm

I almost fall for that , but the same thing everbody says , the letter has no legal Info and the website they provide is plain and cheap , thanks to google and your comments I didnt fall for this.

#730 Fru on 04.18.12 at 5:13 pm

South Florida: mine arrived Mar. 24, 2012. Since I don’t send money to random strangers I checked Google–thank you all for this wonderful warning website (the real www!). I’ll return their envelope with stuffing–but note that they paid only twenty cents in postage to send it, so maybe we won’t hit them as hard as we’d like. Still, any hit’s a hit….

#731 Lydia on 04.21.12 at 6:25 am

I got the same letter today and I said to myself before I send the money I’m going to check this in the web side nd I found all your comments. Thanks people for warning.

#733 Blairsown on 04.29.12 at 11:08 am

OMG, I wonder how many people just send $ to idiots like this. For 10,000 in credit they couldn’t afford to pay the 37$ fee. “That’s how I knew it was a scam”. Too easy!! It is so tempting and disgusting the way people in this economy need $, being teased w/a scam makes me wish I knew where these people are! Its so wrong to take advantage of people sending there last few dollars in hope of financial relief!!

#734 john stone on 05.01.12 at 7:52 am

N.Y.C.: after reading a dozen or more comments,im really glad that i didnt send these morons the $37.00 they wanted.im glad that google is around today so that every one who gets a app. from these pieces of shit that scam innocent people out of their hard earned money can go online to find out info if they are real or not.i really wish that the government would do some thing about these assholes who do this.if people from all around the country get together and fight as one,maybe some body will here our voice. THIS BULLSHIT HAS TO BE STOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if u feel the same way,please email me at jcstone63@gmail.com………………………………… we have to stick together and rid our society of scum like this so others dont fall into this situation…………….my name is john stone..thank u for caring.

#735 WeFixBadCredit on 05.07.12 at 12:57 pm

Do not do this people, we are investigating them now and have found some nasty results!

#736 dr on 05.09.12 at 9:48 pm

I had a job in NJ and I was required to join Workers Union. Once they got my name they sold my private info to many scammers. One of them was Union Workers Credit Services. Yes, I did sent them 37$ to get this 10.000$ credit line as I thought. Call me stupid because I deserved it. They say this can be cancelled and 37$ refunded within 30 days. I tried to cancel my membership after I found out who they are. No phone numbers to call! No customer service whatsoever. I gave up on cancelling membership and ended up with losing 37$.
The way this scam works, they make people believe that they are getting credit line. Instead it’s just a paper card. You can only buy merchandise from them. They will send a catalog. Everything is just a cheap staff in it being triple overpriced. Same as the Dollar Store variety only with three digits prices.
Don’t send them money! Never!
They keep sending me their membership offers. I am having the best fun I ever had for 37$ they owe me. One time I returned them a used toilet paper. Most of the time I just fill up the envelope with heavy staff. Let them pay for it. Hopefully they will end up in Hell bankrupted. Cheers……mfkrs!

#737 Dave on 05.11.12 at 9:12 am

Yep! I can say that I am a victom too…I hope thay spend my $37.00 wisely…. :(

#738 Penwright ie Clairetta on 05.24.12 at 5:37 am

This letter came in the mail May 2, 2012 for my husband. At first, I thought, this is great. But I was also skeptical because our home is in foreclosure and his credit is shot. I put it to the side thinking to tell my hubby later. I came across it again, and re-read it. This time, I noticed how it said the $10,000 would be for their products: they put it in such a way, a person wouldn’t hardly notice it. This is the clue I caught up on (valid exclusively toward all credit purchases from credit provider.) That last part was the clincher: it was when I decided to check it out with millionshort.com/search.php

Sure enough, I found all these reports. I thank God, literally, after being scammed before, to the tune of over $1600, that I did.

Thank you to all of you here for posting your experiences and how this is, indeed, a scam. We can ill afford to be shelling out $37 at this time.

I suspected it was a catalog business, but they write it in such a way as to get people to believe they will receive a Platinum Credit Card for personal use.

As far as sending their envelope back to them. I feel it is a waste of time because they expect this response and are well prepared for it. They will say they are legal because they are offering a service, and that it is our responsibility to pay attention to wording, which, in a way, they are right. This is why they are still, probably, in business. A legal representative would only know the truth.

Either way, I’m putting this on my Facebook wall so others will know about it.

#739 Yolanda on 05.31.12 at 6:51 pm

Yes sir indeedy - a real scam! I received my letter today. No bank association; just want my $37 for a $10,000 credit limit with a 5% APR - red flags were just going off all over the place. I said let me check out their site to find I was absolutely right! Sorry for those who lost their $37 - always remember if you have good credit - then “A Bank or loaning institution” will probably give you a $10,000 credit line.

#740 Laura on 06.02.12 at 8:54 am

I received the same letter today in the mail. I knew it was a scam because I no longer belong to an union. I am going to take everybody’s advice and not send them any money.

#741 Rowena on 06.06.12 at 9:49 pm

Just got con…I do belong to a union and my credit is medium so fell for it. Should have googled before sending the check. uuuuggghhh

#742 Aksotar on 06.08.12 at 4:54 pm

why isn’t the government doing ANYTHING about all these scams ?? I still get calls even though I am on the Federal No Call List….
if you are dumb enough to sign up with out going online and doing some checking then you deserve to be taken !!!
why hasn’t the State of Texas (where they claim their office is) started an investigation on them too ?????

#743 Lisa on 06.12.12 at 9:23 pm

If everyone mails back the return envelope they will get charged the extra postage, if you toss it they lose nothing for filling your mailboxes with junk mail. It might not be much, but all the postage fees will add up if they get more empty envelopes than they do checks…lol

#744 Ricardov on 06.14.12 at 2:00 pm

I just got the letter today, thank god i saw this, stupid ppl trying to steal the little i have away

#745 owen on 06.22.12 at 6:22 pm

Just got this letter, did not see a telephone listed, I knew right away this was a scam, then I google it and was glad I did

#746 Manuel on 06.30.12 at 11:04 am

fell for it all, sent money, in week and a half later the card came with $10,000 limit on their product catalog witch had hardly anything

#747 kelly g on 06.30.12 at 11:45 am

thank you to all of you. I noticed the no phone number so i googled them and even the website is bogus. Then i saw this! Thank goodness i did. I was going to use the credit to buy a car! what a joke. Oh well. Thanks again. I guess it should have been a red flag that it came to my work address. Hmmmm

#748 07/02/2012 Pre-Approved on 07.02.12 at 4:52 pm

My 17 year old son received a letter today saying he is pre-approved for a $10,000 platinum card and all he has to do is send in $37 by 7/18/2012. There was not a telephone number and the website was not user friendly at all. I’ve been scammed before and decided to check if other people had any important scam info. Thank you to everyone for posting. I’m also leaving my post to help. Maybe some day we will be able to stop scammers from hurting us all through the use of websites like this. Sincerely, Georgia 30165

#749 Rome on 07.06.12 at 9:45 pm

thanks guys,i too got the same letter today 07/07/2012.
thanks again for the great information,

#750 Tammy on 07.07.12 at 10:51 am

Got the same letter yesterday, 7 July 2012. I knew it had to be a scam because of the credit limit and did not ask for nothing bu my signature and $37.00.
Why has the BBB around or in TX done something about them.

Hi Friends,
I received the same letter as shown above today (7/9/2012).
I was really surprised to find how an international student like me get a credit card that too with a credit limit of USD10K
Thank you all so much for posting this scam on this website so that everyone can know about it.
This is obviously a big scam.

#753 johnny on 07.09.12 at 9:08 pm

#754 Anish on 07.21.12 at 11:25 am

My dad just received this same letter yesterday. Asked me if it was real. I could tell by the cheap printing of the paper and the fact that it had no phone # listed. Jumped on google and got here. I knew this was fake!! Be careful everyone. This is only one of many scams happening. Question everything before moving forward. Also, I’m definitely sending pre-paid mail back with my middle finger in the air.

#755 Santhosh on 07.22.12 at 9:01 pm

I also got this letter today. Thank God I Googled the company & found is fake.So This is a lesson for everybody to do a research before investing or purchasing finance product..

#756 myra cucueco on 07.22.12 at 10:18 pm

#757 DEDANERO on 07.23.12 at 11:10 am

Didn’t need to look at it to long before i ripped it up.
I said to my self .

Ripped to shreds.

#758 Shawdog007 on 07.24.12 at 9:09 pm

Got the same letter a few days ago and put it straight in the shredder machine, ITS A FAKE, FRAUD, AND PHONEY!!

#759 Man on 08.03.12 at 2:03 pm

I will be #755 to make a comment. Glad to know others care when they spent a minute to make sure others are not daubed. I hope somebody in the law enforcement community or FBI investigate these type of scams…

#760 Mi on 08.07.12 at 12:37 pm

I just got the same letter. If everyone is posting this fraud why are they still doing this? It looks like it dates back to 2008 by these comments. Its 2012. What the hell is this world coming to that there is nothing to protect the consumer. I hope these idiots rot.

#761 Dave on 08.10.12 at 7:25 pm

I got the same letter today 08-10-12. The letter sounded too good to be true for me so I decided to look it on the internet. Glad I did. They offer a 10k credit limit as long as I send them $37 but there is no phone number to contact them and there is none of my personal information listed on the letter. How do they know if it is really me or not that got the letter? Plus, there was no legal notices on the back of the letter as well. Don’t send these scammers anything.

#762 Nick Cucinella on 08.10.12 at 8:28 pm

I received this same letter a few weeks back and was going to join, because I thought hey I can take my high interest credit cards and transfer it to this low interest card, however I decided to google and found this website, now I have to figure where to find a credit card with low interest. Does anyone out there have any ideas ?

#763 Marvalene on 08.10.12 at 10:32 pm

Aloha from Oahu.

I just got one in the mail. its sad that this is still going on:( Pray that these people get caught soon. Pray for them and GOD will deal according to his well… Have a blessed day.

I received this letter today and since i been scammed way too many times,i decided to do a research,ok first of all lets start of by saying the web site does work and it even has a picture of George Forman on it,nice and all sorts of other pictures .. see my link attached http://www.unionworkerscreditservices.com/Union%20Workers%20Credit%20Services%20catalog.asp

no i did not send the money in,but i found another web site that will help all you out that will avoid you from being scammed and maybe help some other people ..


this is a excellant site that shows that there are alot of scams going on and they are doing it very shadyily

anyhow sorry for those that got scammed ,i hope that you at least learn from all this Sincerely Jim

#765 arkel on 08.14.12 at 8:31 pm

Yeah I get to join the fool club. My money has been short so when I received this fucking letter saying it was from the union and I’m in the union, so it had to be real. yeah real bullshit. I’ve never been scammed this is my first time and hopefully my last. I will look up all info before doing this again. No more smoke and mirrors for me……………….

#766 Kristina on 08.18.12 at 6:30 pm

I Received this letter today and there is now a phone number 1-877-835-0969. So they have added that on to the scam now. The first thing I noticed it didn’t have the typical fake credit card that every other one has. Also since i only have a score of like 670 right some company giving me a credit limit $10,000 not something that is very likely.

#767 ifeelthesame on 08.27.12 at 7:41 am

now i am about to repot them to attorney general for my little 37 dollars i lost that could have been gas money

#768 ifeelthesame on 08.27.12 at 7:42 am

#766 that number is for central resturants

#769 rob from jersey on 08.27.12 at 2:22 pm

I live in nj and just received this letter last week. I work for the roadroad and am in a union so I thought this letter was completely legit. I always google ANY company that is offering me ANYTHING. Its an outrage to see by way of this site, that this co. Has been doing this for what looks to be years! Way to go government for allowing this to go on. I wonder what would happen if I were to just start collecting money from people under false pretenses
Oh wait I already know…Id be in jail looking@3-5

#770 Ileana on 09.05.12 at 8:33 am

I just recieved this letter today. But what flagged me that it might be a scam was the fact that the memership fee of $37.00 needed to be paid upfront with a check or money order. When you are approved for a credit card the fees are applied to the credit card not paid upfront. I’m glad I googled their name and came across this site. I dont understand how they continue to scam people! Where is our law inforcement???

#771 Ruth on 06.15.13 at 11:37 am

Well, I got mine today so they are still scamming. Glad I looked it up!

#772 dj on 06.22.13 at 9:12 am

I receive this such letter yesterday 06/21/2013 ! But after scanning through the fine print this morning that says {You have been approved for this PLATINUM CARD MEMBERSHIP OFFER} WHAT CAUGHT my eyes was its wording! You HAVE been approve for the PLATINUM card membership OFFER! not for the card. I realized that there was no phone number. RED FLAG $37.00 DOLLARS / it was like pay first and cry later offer something was wrong with this / Then I decided to check out there website and began to read emails from people who got this same letter and fell for the SCAM or did just what I did check it out /OH Boy I am so glad I decided to go check them out. so thank you all for letting me know your story // what it should have said in the letter was this! you have been approved for a platinum scam offer and the cost is only $ 37.00 dollars WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN?. ITS A LIMITED OFFER .if you send us your $37.00 dollars we know that you did not read the letter with the understanding but in the view of making money.as we know you desperately need in this time .That is what it should have said. (So please read the fine prints my friends) God bless you all GOD is good and he is not a scammer his deal is ligit trust in him with all your heart, my friends the bible says where a mans heart is there his treasure be also.so let us not give our heart , nor money to the scammers but to the GOD who gives us all things such as wisdom to enjoy his life he gave us . I remain your friend DJ

#773 Luis on 07.23.13 at 11:00 am

#774 Angie on 07.24.13 at 2:43 pm

im glad i looked this up because my dad was about to send the letter and the money! thanks!

#775 Darlene Cox on 08.10.13 at 6:40 pm

The letter came today with my full address and completely someone else’s full name!?….
So now they are sending these out with random names and addresses on them. I have received mail with wrong spelling b4… But I have never received any mail b4 with a “Darlene Cox” name on it with my address. How do they have my address with that person’s name?

#776 Theresa on 08.19.13 at 11:25 am

My hubby got a letter in the mail and we were going to send it in at the end of the week. I decided to check it out online and sooo glad I did. I know $37 isn’t a lot of money to some , but to us it is.

#777 Rosalyn T. on 09.20.13 at 12:21 am

I got the same mess and I almost went for the scam but just like the rest of you it did not add up thanks Google. Money is hard to come by just to give it to these scammers. When we donate to a worthy cause we as people feel as if we are helping and curing someone or saving a life, but to have our hard earned money stripped from us dishonestly really hurts the American way of life.

#778 Dr. Volkner on 10.05.13 at 1:29 pm

Still in business as of 10/05/13, I’m not even in a union. You can stop the check, but it will cost about the same amount, though it would be satisfying to deny them, if you’ve already sent them money. If you have been ripped off, report them to ftc.gov, so they can shut them down. The fact that they’re still in business means either they are legit somehow, or nobody has reported them. GoDaddy can revoke the domain if they are scamming, but only if there is justification (not receiving the card qualifies).

#779 rebeca on 10.05.13 at 9:11 pm

10/05/2013!!! I just got this card in the mail and I turned it down because I don’t like owing money. I’m a working student to go to medical school and have no time to be posting off credit cards. I was wondering if this meant I had good credit so I googled it and found this. I thought it was weird when it didn’t say what bank it was and I’m glad I didn’t even think about sending my money. I laughed at how strange it was and now I know it’s a scam anyways. From what I’ve read they have been doing this for years and no one has stopped them yet. It’s sad.

#780 Mark on 10.18.13 at 10:47 am

thanks guys for your comments I just got the letter from that stupid company and got shocked , like wow 10,000… and almost decided to send money order to them. Then like how you guys did wanted to make sure this not a scam and researched from google. As how I’m seeing that was scam beware of these kind of companies .

#781 julio on 11.14.13 at 2:02 pm

i received this letter 11/14/13. good thing i googled it first otherwise it wouldve just been $37 in the trash. there should be a lawsuit against them for being scammers.

#782 Elizabeth on 11.30.13 at 1:26 pm

Just got my letter a few days ago, thank God that I decided to look this up. Thank you for this web site.

#783 Elizabeth on 11.30.13 at 1:30 pm

Got my letter a couple of days ago, I so glad for this website, thank God I looked first. Yea I did’nt think I could be so lucky to get a 10,000.00 dollar credit card. Well maybe my ship will come in soon.
