I downloaded the "Active Speed" lastnight (October 23,2003) and cancelled today (Oct. 24th 2003). It took me FOREVER (almost 4 hours) to find the cancellation form (they hide it). If you want to cancel the web address is www.ascentive.com/support/new/cancelform2.phtml
They just sent me an e-mail saying my service was cancelled and that my card was not charged any RECENT charges for the services (see pasted e-mail below). I had this 30 day FREE trial for ONE day and they already put charges onto my account.
This 30 day FREE trial shouldn't have been charged AT ALL until my 30 days was up. There is NO refund form on their website AT ALL to be found. I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND DO NOT CHARGE MY CARD ANYMORE!!!!! I called the credit card company this morning, and there was a charge of 4.95 from Ascentive, I'm waiting for the 39.95 to show up any day.
I can't wait to see the link they give for the refund form (if I'm lucky), if it's like trying to find the cancellation form I better take some No-Doz and prepare to stay up all day and night to search and read the fine print.
(Here is the e-mail they sent me)

CUSTOMER HAS FILLED OUT A CANCELLATION FORM FOR ActiveSpeed:
Cancellation sent on Fri, Oct 24, 2003 10:59 AM
I'm keeping all copies of e-mails to and from this company and sending it my credit card company (I'm sure they will find the above e-mail interesting saying they didn't charge my account) and also to the Better Business Buraeu.
Martin you write these people over and over saying they didn't cancel in time....I downloaded it last night and am cancelling one day later, what is your excuse going to be for me not to get my refund. I bet you will even deny the company put charges on my card. I'm warning everyone about your company and your scam...you should be ashamed of yourself. You must be very desperate for a job, either that or you have no ethics. SHAME ON YOUR COMPANY!!!!! REBUTTAL THIS MARTIN FROM ASCENTIVE!!!!
