A member of my household purchased me a "free gift subscription" to these guys, not realizing the fine print revealed the $49.95 monthly revolving charge. To make matters worse, they used my credit card to sign up. This was two days ago. I have been trying to cancel / opt-out of every crappy spam marketing system they have submitted my information to ever since.
Their representative, Ryan, states in his rebuttal "By submitting your e-mail address at the Website or the website of one of our marketing partners, and/or obtaining services from us, you agree to receive e-mail or telephone calls or other marketing from us and/or our third-party advertisers notwithstanding a prior decision, made by you, to opt out of this or any other of our or a third party affiliate of ours program, pursuant to the CAN-SPAM Act, you are agreeing to opt back in and to receive marketing materials until you decide to opt-out." HOWEVER they make no distinction between ME having submitted my own information, and SOMEONE ELSE having submitted my information.
The results so far in my case: 22 calls so far in the last 2 days, to a phone that is a dedicated business number (given out by aforementioned household member) and even though this number IS on the FTC no-call list, and they have been repeatedly informed of this and asked to stop calling, the calls continue. I will be filing a report to the FTC following this, and checking my credit card for unauthorized billing.
