Todd on November 04, 2019

I had the same $19.95 charge on my card come to find out I had ordered to online books and in the fine print at the end of the confirmation email it's a subscription to a cooking website. I was given a phone number of 702-710-0933 from my bank when I called and got the explanation they said they were going to cancel it I'll let you know in a month

Mark on June 27, 2020

This is legitimate even though it's not made crystal clear. It starts with the purchase of a $0.99 cookbook on Facebook. You're given access to two websites - http://www.recipetour.com and http://shop.ecovaler.com. At some point during this process (I'm not certain when as it was a couple of months ago), you're told that continued access to these sites will result in a monthly $19.95 charge after the first month. If you don't cancel then you're charged $19.95 per month. To cancel for either of these, you can call 702-832-0455. Customer for both sites is handled by this group.

Bonita Murry on September 01, 2020

I have no idea who obo inc is. I have just had 19.95 taken out of my debit card. I'm furious that someone has hacked my card. I want it back. I'm only on minimum social security. I can't afford to have money taken for something I didn't buy

TIFFANY Gray on November 11, 2020

I just spotted OBO INC. in my bank statement. I was charged 19.95 on my debit card.. I didn’t order anything from them. This charge happened on Nov 4, 2020. Transaction happened at 5.12am. I’m filing a dispute with my bank to get my money back.

Ethella Moore on November 25, 2020

I don't know what this OBO INC. charge is on my account. I want an explanation and then a deposit of $19.95 BACK into my account.

Glenn Fields on November 25,2020 on November 26, 2020

I have had a charge from OBO inc. and ECZ for $19.95 each on my credit card for three months. I called the credit card company. They are launching an investigation, replacing my money and issuing a new card. Don't do like I did, check your statement every month.

Twinkle Toes on December 02, 2020

I've had the same problem. I wanted the $0.99 cookbook I I had seen on Facebook, but after learning that I would then have to pay $19.95/month for the privilege, I changed my mind, cleared the form, and backed out of the page. On November 23rd, I received a charge of $19.95 from OBO INC. I filed a complaint with my CC company, filled out a complaint from, and thought that was the end of it. NOPE. On November 30th, I was charged $19.95 from a company called MBM*ECOV. Once again, I called my CC company and filled a complaint. This time, I've had to destroy my CC and now I have to wait 7-10 business days to receive my new card. It appears that this company has several aliases. Their phone numbers are out of California but it appears that their physical location is in Las Vegas. B*****ds. 😡👎🏼

Ms Pearson on December 06, 2020

This is a scam, I never signed up for anything on this site, This has been coming out for 6 months and I was not aware of it. Please refund all monies.

Karen B on January 05, 2021

I'm going through my 86-year old Mom's credit card. I can only go back to Nov 2018. Beginning March 24, 2019, she has been charged $19.95 every month. She has no idea what it is. We will be calling her bank.

Rebecca V Lewis on April 06, 2021

Walter on June 19, 2021

Probably do to one of the websites advertising $.99 ebook recipes. The fine print has you signing up for $19.95 per month subscription. Very tricky! The good news is i called and they agreed to cancel the subscription and refund my money. Also called band and canceled debit card. Be careful out there.

Velda Henley on July 21, 2021

Tanya on August 27, 2021

I received a fraud alert for 9.95 OBO INC. on my credit card. My CC company will block this transaction thank goodness.

Gail Smith on September 09, 2021

Obo tried to charge my cash app $1.99 at first but they were denied because I disabled my card becuz of fraudulent acts. Three days later they tried to take $19.99 but was again denied. I searched up $obo to see what wud happen and it bought up the name of the person who was trying to take my money. I found this woman on FB and read her profile, turns out according to what I read this lady is supposedly The Director of OBO inc. I sent her a nice little note WIFF😂 screenshots and asked her to explain herself... haven't heard back from her yet. I also blocked her and reported it as spam with cash app.

Angela H on September 11, 2021

I was charged $19.95 and I did NOT authorize this! I want this placed back into my checking account. It caused an overdraft charge of $22.00 as well. I have notified my bank that it is a fraudulent charge.

Francoise Waddell on September 21, 2021

I have found these charges of 19.95 on my stash card account. Can you please tell me how I can get them to stop taking money?

Hayley Sparkes on November 16, 2021

I have had this transaction appear on my credit card. Reported immediately to my provider and card has been cancelled. Frustrating now have to wait 4-7 Business days for a replacement 🤬. How can I prevent this happening again?

Helen jones on December 07, 2021

Why is I'm being charged 19.95 from OBO INC I did not authorize this what can I do

Debby Brock on December 12, 2021

I found 3 charges for this website, 19.95 each for October 7, November 7 and December 10th. I have no clue what these charges are for. I am out of work and this has killed my account.

Ann on December 13, 2021

Theives!! Omg. Little .99 then wham..we get you coming for 19.95 from mbm then going for obo on another 19.95 two in one month. For 2 months 80.00 crap I could have used that for Christmas. Thanks, we need to stop these shady ass wipes. Had I not double checked my bank I'm like why twice in one month? I called the customer service from that one email and got some dude, then called another different number for the other and it was same dude he says I talked to you earlier. It's canceled. I said it All better be canceled both. What thrives.

Jackie on August 28, 2022

This obo inc is a big ripoffthey try to fraudulent extract 19.95 out of your bank without your permisson.They have currently tried 2 times(declined!) NOW I have to get a new card.A**holes!

JOANN C. HOLDER on August 31, 2022

There is a charge of $19.95 charge on my bank account, have no clue who or what it is. I want it replaced in my account. I am a senior on SS and to me that is a lot of money so return it, this is a scam..

DeezNutzRherz on November 07, 2022

There was an attempt to charge me this $19.95 at 2:30am on Nov 7,2022.i have absolutely no idea what it is but I'm so glad I can lock my card to not allow charges to go thru unless I know about them beforehand. I suggest if you can do it, lock your card people. It does prevent the hassle of trying to get the money back and having to wait for it, especially if you have a fixed or limited income. Good luck and take care prior. God bless

Tess P. on November 23, 2022

I was going over my bank statements for the 2022 year, and discovered this $19.95 charge on my bank account. I started checking it out, and is from OBO Inc. OBO Inc seems to be a web site www.bigkitchenbooks.com further searching the IP address is fake. It comes up as ww1.bigkitchenbooks.com and wont work no matter what I try. WHAT A SCAM!! That's hundreds of dollars taken from us non- suspecting people. Actually if I recall correctly, for the recipe's it was to be $1.99 Not be $19.95 I didn't want the whole book!! Its probably a person/persons setting up a bogus website working on making big bucks by stealing our money!! 100 people x 19.95 = would give them $1,995.00 dollars.
