Complaint Review: America Online
America Online ripoff OGDEN Utah
Since I was tired of their onslaught, I decided to go ahead & try their DSL. However, after thinking more about it, I went online & attempted to stop the order within 3 days. Their message said "it will be cancelled," yet I received the equipment within a couple of weeks anyway.
So, I went ahead a attempted to set-up the system, but my Presario needed some more accessories in order to make it function properly. I did not sign up to spend more money.
However, due to previously incorrect billing on another incident, AOL owed me a refund, which is verifiable with documents. So, I held their DSL equipment until I received my credit due.
However, according to a very very lengthy statement on their site, "if the equipment is held for longer than 30 days, the customer will be billed $99," the cost of the equipment. I became extremely irate when I became aware of this.
I have asked repeatedly for my full refund (they only refunded $50 of the $99 so far). This to me is a fraud. Since I have not gotten a response, I have filed complaints with the FTC, as well as, Atty Gen Lockyer (CA), & of course, my favorite website, The Rip-Off Report. COM.
