Discovered today that upon buying tickets from ticketmaster.com 2 months ago, I was signed up for ENTERTAINMENT REWARDS.
Since then, they have been taking $9 out of my checking accnt A month W/OUT MY CONSENT. I did NOT sign up to try any offer or give them any consent that they could take a monthly WITHDRAWAL FROM MY BANK ACCOUNT.
The only notification I ever I recieved about this program was from the bank when I called about something else (May have recieved e-mails, but because I did not sign up for anything of the sort I would've deleted them as 'junk'). Luckily the bank provided me w/a phone #.
Upon looking up the co. online as to what benefits I was entitled to (which turned out to be NOTHING), I found more info on ANGRY people than info on the co.
After reading the complaints I decided to approach them carefully w/my diconnection & refund request. The man was READY W/HIS DEFENSE. I told him I knew exactly what happened & I spoke my actions. I managed to get a disconnection confirm. # & a $9 refund for this month (should've gotten full refund)... He was sure to tell me that this was "a one time curtesy," & that if I just so happened to find myself enrolled again, I couldn't get another refund.
But that's ok, I will never use ticketmaster.com again.
This is a dishonest scam I was enrolled in after I was so careful not to do anything of the sort. I would never try such a service as I very rarely buy tickets to events, etc. I do not understand how it is not outright theft.
They even know its dishonest, just listen to their voicemail mssg or talk to the man answering the phone, it sounds like their from a circus in hell, 866-364-1333.
