On April 7, 2009, while on my computer an opportunity survey came up to pay $5.00 for opinion. I filled out a form including my cell phone number. After reviewing the questions, but not answering any of the opinion questions, I decided that this was not for me....NOT FOR ME! So I closed the window and within seconds I mean 2 seconds my cell phone alerts me to a text message. Before I could respond three more text messages were received.

I was amazed that it was from PREDICTO.COM that gave me the impression that this opinion was optional and ecspecially since I did not complete the so called opinion survey. One message gave me a PIN to use, I did not use this PIN because for one I don't use my text features, the other gave me 5 bonus ringtones, that I did not use because, I use standard provider given ringtones, another charged me for the service???? for not giving my opinion, in the amount of $9.99 per month WHAT - WHAT, which I did not use because, I have PREPAID ACCOUNT. Needless to say, my reason for not using text feature or purchasing ringtones is because I have a PREPAID ACCOUNT.

I was charged by AT&T for the text messages in the amount of 20 cent per text message times four, you do the math. This amount of $9.99 by predicto.com shows as monthly charge (?) that may be taken out of my account each month???? I DID NOT AUTHORIZE THEM TO DO SO, which means I've lost all the money in my prepaid account balance..therefore I could not even cancel the predictio.com or make a call to the company. All of my good intention for predicto.com are bankrupt.

This predicto.com is truely a piece of work. I will not be able to use my phone for other things like emergencies because of predicto.com. I will not be taken advantage of for another $9.99 so I intend to switch my prepaid service provider. Sorry for those folk whom are locked into their providers.

We must all work together to stop these kind of things from happening to consumers. Thank for your eyes and ears!
