Credit Report America cleverly disguised their advertising as an actual newstory and published it on MSNBC.com. The story read about how people were making money by using Google's Adsense. It gave you a link to click on that made it look like you were actually on the Google Adsense page (if you had never actually seen the real one). [continued below]....
My complaints are these:1) I authorized my credit card for a $1 charge. If there are going to be any additional charges, there needs to be more warning than simply clicking yes one time. There should be a popup with a list of "terms and agreements" that you have to initial, or at least one extra step that makes you aware your credit card is being billed again.
2)It's misleading calling something a "Trial" when it is clearly not.
3)It's fraudulent to charge me a fee ($48.92) for something I do not get a service or product for.
4)The so-called "terms and conditions" on the initial page say I am under no obligation at all. There is nothing saying I am being billed an initial fee, an activation fee, a service fee, etc. It says it's a trial and if I wish to continue as a member, there will be a fee. And there is certainly nothing saying the fee is "nonrefundable".
I don't know how many others have fallen victim to this particular scam already, but if you have, please don't be that type of person that says, "it's just $50 bucks" and go on with your life. This is criminal and it needs to be stopped.
In the UK, there is Distance Selling regulation that stipulates a 7-day cooling off period. The Distance Selling Regulations provide additional protection e.g. your card company must refund you if your credit, debit, or store card is used fraudulently and, in many cases in the EU, the law allows you time to change your mind, within seven working days of the delivery, and get a refund.
The employees at Credit Report America seemed to think they had every right to deny my refund because I clicked Yes.
Friends, get on board and stop allowing companies to get away with victimizing people with these manipulative and fraudulent scams!
