Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I saw someone else file a report here about ifriends charging hundreds of dollars on their credit card for a "free membership". They did the exact same thing to me several years ago. I called and tried to cancel my "Free Membership" and they STILL kept charging me! I literally had to close my bank account and start a new one just to keep these assholes from continuously ripping me off!!!

I lost hundreds of dollars to these rotten bastards! I hope I can save others from falling into this same trap and I now see that I am not the only one this has happened to! I encourage anyone else who has had this happen to report it! What these assholes are doing is terribly wrong and they should be stopped! DON'T SIGN UP FOR THEIR FREE MEMBERSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
