I keep getting charges on my credit card for downloads from my cell phone that I am not purshasing. I have been fighting these charges for the last 4 months. I contacted sprint and also my credit card carrier. I finally had to cancel my phone number and my credit card. I don't know who these people are are even how they got my credit card number but beware because it is a scam. I do not text message or download anything from my phone, but the charges keep adding up every month!!!!

#2 Consumer Suggestion

AUTHOR: Sylver8248 - (U.S.A.)

I googled this company, and it says the following on their website: "Predicto Mobile Phone Game lets you vote on fun questions from your cell phone. Earn points and cash in for prizes and a chance to win our $50000 prize!". So this is obviously one of those scams you see on tv...text 44536 and get your horoscope now! Yet in the fine print it says that you agree to be billed $29.95 a month.

ALso listed on the company website: "Q: I want to cancel, what do I do?
A: Just text "STOP" to 654654. We'll cancel your subscription. Right away, we will stop sending you prediction questions, news updates, and other administrative messages. If you cancel after your subscription has renewed but before you have received your cell phone bill, you will see one last monthly charge. But, we will not charge any new amounts on your phone bill after you cancel."

So there you have it...your complaint is with Predicto, NOT Comcast.
