You billed me in error so you will have to fix it. You are all owned by the same company. I don't buy your scam. I have found further info:
Customer (PB) 04/26/2006 11:19 PM
NOW I KNOW WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS YOU ARE RUNNING & you should be ashamed of yourselves. People believe that they have found a trustworthy website where they can find family information. Then you rip us off.
Has my $205 been credited yet.
Customer (PB) 04/26/2006 03:01 PM
How the hell did I get charged for that??? I've NEVER used them. If I was billed the previous year, I did not realize it. *My Father passed away 1/9/05 & I might have missed it. So they got money for something I never used*. *I'm lucky I caught this one because my Mother passed away in Dec.* I have contacted enough people. Send them this email and get it done NOW. This has gone on too long - especially since they are not authorized charges (some I never used). GET YOUR SUPERVISOR INVOLVED IF YOU HAVE TO.
I really am fed up & I'm being charged interest for your mistake. (*not you personally).* I'm sure you can understand my frustration. How would you feel if this was being done to you.
I should not have to spend any more of my time on this matter. This was not my doing. I want it done by Friday. I'm serious that I will take further action & report negative feelings wherever I can.

I am fed up - I received 2 credits, but not the $205.94 for something that I have no idea about. I have forwarded you previously the email telling you
NOT to renew my subscription and your return email acknowledging the cancellation.
I had originally signed up for 1 year (2005) for 1 program. I have no idea what all the other charges were for - what kind of scam you are running - or if it was an employee error.
I WANT THE CREDIT NOW!
On Friday, 4/28/06 I will begin the actions below,
if you have not taken action. As I said before I need my money more than you do.
I am very serious that I will call the attorney general, NYC news stations, etc. Until I get this resolved. Then I don't want to ever hear from you again.

I DID NOT AUTHORIZE ANY OF THOSE CHARGES, therefore, I want a refund effective 1/30/2006. Please tell me how you charged me for those things below - I don't even know what they are and never used them.
Please process my refunds NOW.
If not I will contact our NYC news station and it will be broadcast in the tri-state area. I'm very serious about this matter. I need my money to live on. I need it more than you do. I used Ancestry for one year and that is all I needed. I finished what I wanted to
do prior to 1/30/06. This is a shameful way to make money!
