What Is GFW*3GLDSCR.COM On My Bank / Credit Card Statement?

Bank Building

GFW*3GLDSCR.COM is the name used for charges that originate from 3GldScr.com.

3GldScr.com is primarily a credit reporting and credit monitoring service. They also offer other services, such as a credit score tracker, roadside assistance, and a course book providing education about credit.

3GldScr entices customers into signing up to what they believe are free or low-cost credit checks, which then rebill at a much higher price.

In actuality, most people sign up for a $1 trial, and then get rebilled for $39.90 shortly later.

Is 3GldScr A Scam?

If you’ve landed on this article, the charges from GFW*3GLDSCR.COM may have come as a surprise. But is 3GldScr a scam, and do you need to worry about your credit card information being stolen?

Thankfully, 3GldScr is not a scam – in fact, they are a legitimate service for monitoring your credit. With their ‘Ultimate Credit’ plan for $39.90 a month, you’re able to check and monitor credit from Experian, TransUnion and Equifax along with a few other benefits as well.

That being said, many people have complained about their deceptive business practices, and ended up signing up for their ‘Ultimate Credit’ plan without realizing it, which is why the $39.90 charge is one of the most common.

This can be quite frustrating, especially if you did not realize that you were signing up for an ongoing plan.

What To Do Now?

If you signed up for 3GldScr by mistake or you believe that the GFW*3GLDSCR.COM charges are not legitimate, don’t worry!

Follow the steps below, and you will stop being charged by the company, and possibly receive refunds on prior charges.

1. Formally Cancel The Service – And Obtain Written Proof If Possible

The first thing you’ll want to do is immediately cancel the service, assuming you no longer want to be billed for it.

Fortunately, the entire process for this is pretty easily. Currently, there are two ways to cancel.

The first method is to cancel directly from their website. To do this, login to your account at 3gldscr.com by clicking the gray ‘Login’ button in the top-right corner of the page.

Then, navigate to the ‘Billing History’ section under ‘My Account’ and follow the on-screen instructions to cancel.

The second method is to cancel by phone.

3GldScr’s customer support can be contacted at 1-866-358-2127 during business hours.

According to their website, they take calls from 9 AM to 9 PM EST during the week, 9 AM to 4 PM EST on Saturday, and 1 PM to 6 PM EST on Sundays.

Be sure to have your member ID and email address for your account handy so they can look up your information quickly. Your member ID can be found in your member’s portal, or inside of the original welcome email you received when signing up.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to document all information regarding your attempt to cancel, including the date, time and method. If you need to chargeback with your credit card company, this will be important information to have on hand.

2. Dispute Any Unauthorized Charges

If you have unauthorized charges from 3GldScr.com or GFW*3GLDSCR.COM, don’t panic! You should be able to dispute the charges or reach a resolution without any problems.

According to 3GldScr.com, they strongly encourage you to contact their customer service before disputing the charge with your credit card company. We agree with this advice.

3GldScr’s customer support can be contacted at 1-866-358-2127 during business hours.

As noted earlier, they take calls from 9 AM to 9 PM EST during the week, 9 AM to 4 PM EST on Saturday, and 1 PM to 6 PM EST on Sundays.

By contacting them directly, they will be able to explain the situation and make things right if there actually are any unauthorized charges. Even if you are unable to get a refund, proof that you’ve contacted 3GldScr will help you when it comes to filing a chargeback with your debit card / credit card company.

Note however that if you did actually authorize the charge – even under the guise of a free trial, 3GldScr is likely to defend and win the dispute in their favor.

So, you want to be absolutely sure that the payments are truly unauthorized before filing a dispute.

In terms of social media, 3GldScr appears to have a Reddit page, but it is inactive. The company does not appear to have any presence on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. 

3. Issue A Stop Payment Order With Your Bank

Finally, the last thing to do is to issue a ‘stop payment order’ with your bank.

This should be considered a last resort, after first contacting the company to formally cancel your credit monitoring service.

A stop payment order with a bank or credit union is essentially a request for them to stop processing automatic payments to a particular vendor / company.

This can be very useful if a company continues to charge you after you’ve attempted to cancel your service. However, if you are under a contract, you may still be legally obligated to pay the money even if a stop payment order is issued.

For most banks, stop payment orders cost between $15 and $35. Contact your local bank office for instructions on how to begin the process.

Conclusion

If you see GFW*3GLDSCR.COM on your bank or credit card statement, understand that is 3GldScr.com credit monitoring service.

Most commonly, the charge is for $39.90. However, you may have received other charges for $9.95, $19.95, $29.95, $39.30, $40, $40.95, $49, or $69.90. Their trial also starts with a $1 charge.

If you no longer wish to be charged by 3GldScr.com, follow the steps above to ensure the service is cancelled and that no further payments are authorized.
