Complaint Review: plenty of fish
plenty of fish plentyoffish.com plenty of fish engages in credit card auto-renewal of membership (very deceptive indeed). vancouver, British Columbia
HERE IS WHAT YOU DO IF YOU FIND THAT YOUR CREDIT CARD HAS BEEN CHARGED by plenty of fish.
IF YOU ARE IN THE Unites States. ---------------
1. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Comission
2. File a complaint with the local state Attorney General's office
Auto-renewal or renewal without being notified NEAR the renewal date are now mandatory in many states. You may find that the FTC's laws are limited in this matter or your state's laws are limited (because of lobbying from the electronic merchants association). BUT STILL COMPLAIN. When your Attorney General or FTC gets a barrage of letters they investigate and try to change business practices. :-)
If you are in Canada:
1.Complain to your Attorney General's office of your province.
Some provinces like Ontario and Quebec have updated their consumer protection law to limit auto-renewal contracts or continuing service contract , and they have provisions to give you notice near the renewal date. Of course your province may vary.
