*UPDATE Employee: RE: Your complaint
I was at the end of my megaupload subcription, and I was shopping around for a new data storage network. A buddy suggested I try Usenet.nl becuase it was more open. I decided to give it a shot, and signed upfor the trial which was a dollar.
I proceeded to thier trial and payed the 1 eurovia PayPal, "Big Mistake"..I tried downloading a 7.5gb file which stopped at 7.2gb, and wouldn't continue going. The Usenet.nl kept telling to proceed I needed to purchase more GBs or packages to continue and I was at my limit. I sayed ok, megauploads and rapidshare had limits per day and I should wait maybe this was the same. I tried for 2 days stright and the software kept telling me to purchase a package or upgrade to a plan. I said forget it I lost 1 euro on something I never got, plus the content had nothing of interest anyway. I walked away thinking it was useless with Usenet.nl.
Two weeks later I was checking my emails and statments, and ran accross a bill that stated I was charged 99euros or $137.07usd for an entire year subsciption to Usenet.nl via PayPal. I was never wanrned, never informed this was going to happen, it just processed and withdrew my credit done. What makes this company a real scam is they don't charge a monthlyfee if you miss the trial, the just downright go for the kill and chargeyou an entire year. God forbids you forget again it's another years charge.
I googled Usenet.nl, and the second all time hit for this site is "Usenet.nl scams", it seems they prey on megaupload and rapidshare users. I printed up close to 50 pages of blogs which attested Usenet.nl is a scam. They already said I will get my money back so I can do is tell the world how Usenet.Nl ripped my off.
