Tonight I received notice on my cell phone bill online. When I checked it, it had %9.99 charges applied that I was not aware of. I checked it out and dicovered it to be this Predicto. Apparently, I was getting text messages from them from 654654, which I always deleted because I don't have a text package with my phone service and I get charged $.20 for each text I send or open.

I Googled the name and found your site with a previous listing. I did what the other person with a complaint did. I went to the site and read the cancelation instructions: text "STOP" to 654654 to cancel membership. I also read in their Membership agreement (which I never agreed to because I never signed up) that I cannot participate in a law suit against them.

This is copied from their membership agreement - "1.1 Membership Types; Registration Information: We offer two types of memberships: Basic Memberships and Premium Memberships. You must be a legal resident of the U.S. and have the mobile phone account holder's consent to subscribe. The Service is not available to users under 13 years of age or to Florida State residents under18 years of age. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18 years old, a parent must subscribe on your behalf. " The part that says "you must...have the mobile phone account holder's consent to subscribe" they infact violated. I never gave my consent no matter what their twisted logic may say. I NEVER CONSCIOUSLY gave my consent to this "service".

This whole set up is a total scam. I was never aware of signing up for membership in any thing. I wish there was some way to make these people pay for their sneaky, devious practices. They ripped me off!
