I am reporting this charge as well, I have 2 charges from them for $99 and $275 but have never purchased wireless phone insurance in my life.
ASURION WIRELESS INSURA 866-6672535 TN
What is it?
My Visa company was alerted that my card was compromised due to a 3rd party being hacked and credit card numbers were stolen. Once i was issued a new card my old card was charged by them for two charges - $169 & $199. these are fraudulent charges and you should contact your credit card company for pursue this with them.
I am reporting this /// I did not autroize this charge I don't even know who or what company this even is
I was charged $199.00 from Aurian Wireless ins so I disputed the charge and my credit card credited me back the $199.00. The next day I saw two more pending charges from them for $199.99 and 99.00 so I ended up having to have a new credit card number issued to me. I know this company is associated with Verizon Wireless (which i do not use). I recently signed up for Verizon Fios at my home so I think that it is weird that I started getting these charges right after that, even though I had never given Verizon this credit card number. I still believe this has something to do with Verizon though, maybe a Verizon employee on commission from Aurian to provide credit card numbers from my Credit report.
I was checking my bank balance and found a charge for $199.00, dated 1/09/2014, from Asurion Wireless Ins 866-6672535 TN. I had no idea who or what this was all about. I went on line to do some research on this company and found that others have had the same problem. I will be alerting my bank, as soon as they open, that I did not make the charge and will have this card closed out immediately, as well as contact Asurion Wireless Ins who I have never done business with.
Reporting that this happened to me too. $788 in various charges within 10 days. On my discover card that I rarely use.
My visa company just blocked my card for a fraudulent $199 charge from Asurion. First I've ever heard of them. Never had wireless insurance.
p.s. the charges were $150 and $175.

I also have this charge on my account/debit card. My bank instructed me to contact the merchant directly at 866-667-2535 and request that they cancel the transaction before it's authorized. Apparently this merchant is affiliated with those idiots at Verizon, with whom I do NOT have a mobile phone. This amount represents a deductible when a claim is filed on a mobile device. The merchant asked for my card number, which I declined to provide.
I'm going to my bank to dispute the charge and report the card stolen.
I also had a $45 charge from Asurion Wireless in Tel86667253 TN on 1/16/2014 CHARGED DIRECTLY to my checking account!!! I also HAVE NEVER purchased cell phone insurance!!! I called Asurion on 1/24/14 (my credit union gave me the corrected number: 1-866-667-2535) - and they referred me to an agent (Natalie ID #104202) who said that I would have to provide my Debit Card number in order to tell me what the charge was for!!!! I wasn't going to give my number to a company that has already made a fraudulent charge! Now I have to cancel my debit card in order to dispute this charge!!! This is messed up!
I checked my bank account on 2/7/2014, only to notice a charge from ASURION WIRELESS INS. posted to my accounnt on 2/6/2014, for $169.00. I don't even have cell phone service in my name, so why would i buy insurance. I immediately notified my bank and was told to check it again on monday 2/10/2014 to see if it was sent through, if so we would prosecute. I am demanding a refund to my account immediately.
My Visa was charged 169 from Asurion as well from my credit union. They also took little over a 1,000.00 out of my other bank account with USAA on the same day. One charge was with Walmart and two others with Liberty Mutual. After contacting Liberty Mutual, they said we don't show those charges of those amounts. These people have no idea what is going to happen next but I do. Knock, Knock, "PRISM", we have a reservation for you at our state pen for 5 years. Felony offense... I get the last laugh. :-)
I already have phone insurance that was purchased nearly a year ago. There's no way I'd make a charge like this. I have the habit of checking my account daily, and thank goodness I did! There was a $75 charge on my checking account from ASURION WIRELESS INS TEL866667253 TN Date 02/06/14
I'm going to my credit union tomorrow to fill out a fraud form. I already cancelled my debit card. :/
It looks like this has been happening quite frequently. I hope this gets settled soon!
I was charged $75 by them. Never heard of them, and have never purchased wireless insurance.
Update - I just spoke with Visa the card is now cancelled. Visa said that they also use a charge with something small like $1.12 to authorize under 123 Copenhagen, or some name like that. Then they wait so you don't get suspicious and then they charge the large amounts later. My Visa is now cancelled.
I am reporting this charge - two transactions dated 12/19/13 on my VISA card. VISA company says someone used my # to buy replacement cell phones, that is what the charges are for. It's a legit company but someone fraudulently using CCs to buy stuff (cell phones) from them. My card is being cancelled and a new one issued.
I was charged for $224.11 on my Visa and then again two days later for $189.25 its fraudulent reporting it to Visa
Just looked at my account and was charged $169 as well by ASURION WIRELESS INS 866-6672535 TN 37211. I will be disputing this company on Monday.
Asurion Wireless in Tel86667253 TN on 2/4/14 charged $169.00 to my debit card. Went to the bank immediately and disputed. Teller called Asurion and the receptionist was insisting that I authorized the charge for a cell phone in NJ. I live in NC. Asked for debit card to verify. Card was already marked stolen so teller gave it to her and she magically had the info. Now I have to wait for another Debit Card.
SOMEONE GOT MY BANK CARD NUMBER AND CHARGED 175.99 6 TIMES. I HAVE NEVER BROUGHT ANY KIND OF WIRELESS INSURANCE FROM ASURION WIRELESS. CALLED MY BANK SO THAT MY CARD CAN BE CANCELED & MY MONEY CAN BE CREDITED BACK TO MY ACCOUNT . WOULD ANYONE KNOW HOW I CAN TAKE LEGAL ACTIONS ON THIS COMPANY.
Today I had 169.00 taken from my account. Called and couldnt get the company so I called Sprint and they told me that isnt even the number for their insurance. the number listed with the charge is 866 667-2535 TN. I have closed and disputed too. What a pain.........................
Asurion Wireless charged my Mastercard for $169.00. Never heard from them until today. Few weeks ago my bank called about the possibility of my card being compromised. Great they got me a new card. Now they call because of suspicious activity on the old number. How can the old number even be usable AND still connected to my account? Sigh! Asurion apparently is charging from TN.
How on earth does this keep happening to people.
Same here, 199 charge hit my BOA card. Also, small charges from Peoplefinder.com
I guess I have the same story. Contacted by BofA and advised that there were suspicious charges on my checking account. Reviewed the charges and found a charge for $169.00 From Asurion Wireless in TN. When I called the number, I explained the problem to the agent who then transferred me to another agent. She told me that if I gave her the full card number she could tell me who made the charge. They sure did sound professional on the phone. Fortunately, I opted to hang up and call the bank instead. Disputing charges and getting a new debit card. What a hassle!
