I thought my charge of $87.50 was fraudulent until I realized that it was my local YMCA. The charge used to say "YMCA ACT" but now it just says "ACT registration".

This is a processing company not Act Student - I spoke to them. just watch your bank statement online and call them if you see any charges not authorized. and whoever is posting the act student stop YOU ARE WRONG. this company processes payments for different groups like park and rec etc...

Don't believe the person who posted saying it's from ACT Student Services. If you track the phone number, it's for ACTIVE.com It's some donation site that you apparently "registered" for a race, and they tacked on some membership fee. Call the number. Get your money back.

I was going to call the bank because I was just charged $160.00 I used to run races through active, and the phone number on my bank charge was not a working number. I was flipping out and called the bank, but at the last moment remembered I made a payment for a trip for my son through his school store...This is just a processing agent, I don't like the fact that the number is not a working number...so I'm going to cancel my card anyway :(

It's a credit card processor and the charge was legitimate for a golf round I paid for. Rather than listing the transaction for the golf course, the charge showed it was from ACT.
Confusing, but not criminal.

It was a charge from our local rec center. I thought it was fraud too, but once I researched I found out it was the charge for my son to attend summer camps at the recreation centers in my town. I agree with one of the other postings on this matter, it would help if the centers posted that they use "ACT" to charge debit and credit card or if signing up by phone to have the employee who is taking your information inform you what ACT is.

I was charged $146.73 on my debit card. I have not clicked on anything or made any donation, I DON'T even know who or what this organization is (except for what I have read here). I called my bank to cancel my card/account because this is considered theft to me. They left only a few dollars the account they took the money from!!!! I have asked the bank to press charges after they do further investigation!!! They are crediting me back my funds but they also pulled up this website & promised me that they are definitely looking into this case/situation so others will not have the same happen to them.

I see a lot of comments about "children" & "legit" on this site. I just want everyone to know, I do not have a child & I do not live in California where my transaction was "made". This is fraud!!! Before you start reading about how legit these people are, I hope you read my post & the post about how they took $146.73 from me. I live in North Carolina and have for 10+ years. Beware of the comments made, could be made by the ones actually doing the scam!!! This is fraud!!!

Appears to be the charge for signing my daughter up for little league fall ball. Ironically, I noticed it, literally, in the middle of registering my son for his ACT. I was starting to think I must have registered him last month in some sort of fugue state. Anyway, it's legit... if confusing.

HERE IS THE ANSWER: ACT is just a Bank Card transaction company. I traced the charges back to my local community center for my son's tennis lessons! I told them they need to put a sign up or an explanation of charges next to the debit/credit card reader that the charges will read: ACT (your city usually) and the company number. OR, ACT needs to get their ACT together, and at least POST the name of the company or center the charge originated from. "Marin Community Center" would have explained everything. What a headache!

Just saw this charge and freaked out about it, but after talking to my wife about it, she did reserve a pavilion at a local park with the City of Cedar Park (TX) for our sons bday party last week. So looks like it it legit.

We too had this charge on our card as "ACT*ACTIVE-NETWORK 877-228-4881 CA". Did some digging and have a definitive explanation. SEE NOTE AT END OF POST FOR THE REAL SUPPORT PHONE NUMBER. The number on the charge statement is different and may not help.
The Active Network, Inc. (www.active.com) is a site that helps all kind of race and event companies process and manage their registrations.
Most of the time the web site for the registration does not make it clear that you are processing your registration through this company!
When you go to check out they will offer you a FREE 30-day trial to Active Advantage, which they will tell you saves you $10 in registration fees and many other benefits. This is what entices so many people to check the box. From their FAQ:
Q: How did I sign up for an ACTIVE Advantage trial membership?
ANSWER: When registering online for an activity/event through the ACTIVE Network (including reserving a campsite on Reserve America), you may be presented with the opportunity to try ACTIVE Advantage free for 30 days. This offer is displayed after your registration is complete, but before your registration confirmation page. To opt-in to the trial membership offer, you are required to verify and re-enter your email address, and then select an offer acceptance button. If you are not interested in the Advantage trial membership, you simply have to click "No Thanks". With either choice you will then be taken to your registration/reservation confirmation page.
If you do choose to try the Advantage trial membership, you will receive a trial confirmation email. Half way through your trial membership period you will receive another "checking in" email that highlights featured discounts and encourages you to take advantage of the membership benefits. At the end of your 30 day trial we will extend your member benefits for a full year at the then-current annual membership fee (currently $64.95) and will send a notification email about the membership status change and billing.
Of course, you're always protected by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. Even if you decide after your 30 day trial period has ended that you're not satisfied with your membership, just let us know and we'll give you a pro-rated refund for the unused months--no questions asked!
Q: Does the trial membership become a full membership?
A: If you decide during the 30-day trial period that you don't want to continue the membership, just let us know. Otherwise, at the end of your 30 day trial we will extend your member benefits for a full year at the then-current annual membership fee. Of course, you're always protected by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. Even if you decide after your 30 day trial period ends that you're not satisfied with your membership, we'll give you a pro-rated refund for the unused months--no questions asked!
Right now that rate is $64.95 per year!
Q: How do I receive a refund for my ACTIVE Advantage membership?
A: To request a refund for your ACTIVE Advantage membership, please contact our customer support team at [email protected] or by phone at 866-561-0647 (between the hours of 7:00am and 5:00pm PST). With our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, if at any time during your annual membership you are not completely satisfied, we’ll cancel your membership and give you a pro-rated refund for any unused months - no questions asked!
