SCAM - Legal Shield [Pre-Paid Legal] - AVOID !!!
case 1 - I cancelled my membership on Friday, faxed it over. Over weekend, I decided I may need it again so I called that Monday to not cancel it. They declined, say I'd need to say the initiation fee again.
case 2 - I called twice and emailed Legal Shield Member Services to cancel my membership, not now, but before the next billing cycle so that I wouldn't get charged again.
They said they'd refund this month's charge but at this time, I cannot verify this because they said itll take a few weeks.
here's my email, is clear that I don't want it cancelled now, I already paid for it. I emailed them for the form to cancel, not to cancel my account [dumb, can't they read?]
-- "Pls email me form to cancel my account. I already paid for this month, this is for before next billing cycle."
here's their reply:

My experience w/ LS
-- They lack customer service tremendously MASSIVE UNDER-STATEMENT!!
-- They don't care if they lose you as a client
-- Their law firms have lawyers who graduate from 3-tier colleges.
-- I would NOT, NOT, NOT recommend them to anyone !!! AVOID !!!
