AOL AOL TWX extra $25.90 monthly charge Xxx Internet
I have been receiving bills from TWX*AOL for $25.90 even though AOL charges me $24.95 on another credit card. When I called AOL they said they had no record of the $25.90 charge. They did have a record of the $25.90 credit card but said the name on it was not my name, so they couldn't discuss any details with me. Judith Highlands Ranch, ColoradoU.S.A.

AOL America Online-Time Warner AOL charging without authorization Internet
I have not been an AOL user in many years. However, when I looked at my bank statement this month (June, 2011), I noticed a $32.90 charge from AOL Service. So, clearly, they are taking money from my checking account without authorization. I attempted to notify them, but they don't have a readily available complaint department. I stopped payment with my bank for all future payments, but I have a feeling I have no chance of getting back the money that they've stolen from me.

AOL*TWX AOL Frauduleny account charges Tampa Florida
Several months ago I found a charge from AOL*TWX New York on my MasterCard bill. I contacted Capitol One fraud services immediately. Capitol One canceled my card. issued a new one and said to expect an affidavit to formally dispute this charge in the mail. I completed and returned it and have heard nothing more from them about this. The charge has not re-appeared on my statements so I assumed it had been settled. Today I received a past due notice from AOL. I called the number listed on the bill and talked to Oliver at AOL customer service (boy, is that a misnomer!) I explained that I am not now, never have been and never will be an AOL customer and that I had already successfully disputed this charge with my credit card company. He gave me the song and dance about contacting fraud services Monday. I have read several message boards and blogs detailing the frustration of trying to speak to a human being at fraud services, even after waiting on hold for an average of an hour. Well, I am disabled, have a speaker feature on my land line phone and have all the time in the world to make the fraud department wish they had never heard of me. If anyone decides to file a class action law suit against AOL please contact me. Considering the state of our economy these days and the number of major companies on the brink of collapse i would take great joy in helping to push AOL over the edge.

AOL AOL Fraud Unauthorized Credit Card Charge Internet
Used a credit card to pay small charge to magazine subscription one-time only. AOL found the email on Gmail account, used credit card to charge/slam me $9.99 for a Privacy program they are scamming with....I did not sign-up for the program and have never used a credit card of any kind with AOL for any purpose. My telephone line is Frontier (horrible) and I pay for internet services with them, but never by credit card. How did they get my credit card info to unauthorized charge me??? Called AOL and complained that they used a credit card I did not provide them. I was told by their representative that the credit card information was 'collected' from a Gmail email account I use regularly to pay for a service that AOL is signing-up people with... The ONLY purchase I have made with that particular credit card was for $1.06 with a magazine subscription two weeks earlier. Rep told me that AOL got the credit card info from my Gmail account email. They literally SEARCHED my email for a credit card to use without my authorization. I never used that credit card for any other charge except the $1.06! AOL conducts FRAUDULENT business activities and charges cards without the owner's permission. I have PROOF that they dig thru emails for credit card information without the permission of the owner or the credit provider. In this case, a Capital Venture card which has been deactivated.

AOL Credit card scam Internet
I cancelled my AOL membership on 10/12/2002. Received cancellation confirmation on 10/18/2002: We are sorry to lose you as a customer, but we have canceled your AOL membership as you requested on 10/12/2002 On 12/18/2002 AOL charged my credit card another time $ 23.90 Called AOl to dispute the charges and was told that I had a second account. I never opened a second account and was not aware of a second account, AOL could have mentioned that when they informed me that I was no longer a member. On 2/14/2003 they still refused to credit the $23.90 back to my CC. Called Bank of America. They explained to me that if someone uses a second screen name it automatically opens a second account at AOL. This looks pretty much as a systematic trick to me: make people think that they are no longer a member with AOL and convert their second screen names into separate account and charge them...

AOL ripoff Internet illinois
When pulling up my checking account online, I noticed it stated I had a $0.00 balance. This was odd because I just got paid the day before. When reviewing the details I see a deduction of $1,278.40 listed as AOL Services. I don't have AOL . Have never talked to any AOL person, or made any kind of inquiry in any manner from AOL. I contacted AOL. Was told to contact my bank by the AOL customer service person. Contacted my bank the next day, and they told me to demand a refund from AOL. Contact AOL again and was told I would received a credit on my account in two to three days. Three days later, no credit from AOL. Called AOL to follow up. The AOL custom service person asked me for my AOL accont number. I don't have an AOL account I told her. She continued to refuse to help me without an account number. I requested that she transfer me to a manager who maybe could be more creative in helping me. The customer service ladies responce was to hideously laugh at me and tell me that the manager would not be able to help me either without an account number. Needless to say the manager did help me find the information on my report, but informs me that it will be 10 days be for I receive my money back. Meanwhile I have zero money. When did it become legal for AOL to steal? Debra lake villa, IllinoisU.S.A.

AOL ripoff consumer rip-off fraud Internet Internet
I have a long-standing AOL account in addition to several others that I use for personal and professional reasons. About 5 months ago, AOL initiated a promotion that offered to convert existing screennames into wholly independant accounts. If accepted, three free months of service would be given. As has become a customary practice, this promotion was offered with a splash screen upon quitting the AOL application. When I first encountered such a dialog, I was NOT offered a button or option to decline or dismiss, there was only one button to accept the offer. Rather than selecting the promo, I quit the computer. Nevertheless, the account was generated. I received an email verification of such, but email responses in protest were returned with the message that it was undeliverable due to that mailbox is full. Phone calls to tech support assured me that AOL recognized that I declined the offer and no more would come of it. On the fourth month hence, I noticed that I had been debited $23.90 in addition to my account fee. In contacting AOL, I was informed that they had no record of my declining the offer and that the three FREE months had elapsed. After having them verify that said account had never been used, it was cancelled and that I would be reimbursed and given two months credit on my regular account for my trouble. One month later, no reimbursement had been received AND I was once again charged from my regular account PLUS the same $23.90 for the additional service. In my subsequent contact with AOL, their words were that this was impossible. After two hours online and on the phone, and after twice being disconnected, it was determined that AOL was indeed at fault and that any future charges would be stopped. I have been promised a reimbursement check and will receive a two additional months of credit on my regular account. This just happened, so I am not certain if this will be the end of it. What concerns me most, however, is the apparent crux of the problem. As I was on the phone with the latest technician, he discovered that he could delete the service in question from my account, but that the request did not apply to the database -- when he refreshed the screen, the service reappeared where it had been deleted. He assured me that the correction had been made manually, but I am not so sure that other people aren't suffering from the same bug. Keep and eye out folks. Peter Vancouver, Washington

AOL ripoff Dulles Virginia
America Online Corp Office 2/03/03 Dulles Virginia 703-265-1000/fax 703-265-1101 To Billing Manager CC: to CEO Re: Gross over charge I am already sick of fighting your people about this matter. If you are not the one person that can correct this problem pass this on to someone that can. Back in March or April of 2003 I was going to cancel AOL and go to Netzero, because of their price plan. I was told by your AOL rep that AOL would match their price plan of $9.95 for unlimited use. Up until December of 2003 that's what we were charged monthly. Then all of a sudden in December we were charged $90. I called and was told that this was for some bring your own broadband. We have never and still do not have any kind of broadband. This was supposedly corrected in December, the charges where reversed. Then surprise!! January brings a $191.42 charge for the same thing. This time however I canceled AOL so this will not happen again. And your people told me on 1-27-04, that yes they see there was an error and that it was corrected in December, and that it would be corrected again..However when I called on 2-3-04 to find out where the refund was, I was told that the refund had been denied. The only reason they would give me, was because I cancelled my Aol subscription. This is terribly outrageous! First being charged for services never used or had by us. In this day and age this is considered stealing. I will state one more time, we have never nor do we now have any kind of broadband service. To top this all off, I talked to a rep named Sam the morning of 2-3-04, he had the nerve to say If I reverse the charges will you come back to Aol I said no, so of course then he told me there was nothing he could do. So, if I had said yes, I would get my $191.42 back??? I expect to be contacted when this billing error is corrected, but not until then.. I will hear no more Aol can't refund your money..Your company has abousulty NO right to charge people for services they do not have! Please note, I was never contacted by Aol about any changes on my account with them. I didnt find out until I was charged. Susan Spokane, WashingtonU.S.A.

Aol ripoff Internet
AOL fraudulently charged my account over $400 for premieum services which they acknowleged I did not order. Last year I asked for refund they wouldn't do it and credited my account for 15 months of service. I did not agree to it. Now that their service is free, I again asked for the refund. This year they said I agreed to the credit (which I did not and have the printed copy of the on-line refusal) and refused again to my request for a refund. Consumer fraud is a nasty thing especially for an international company like aol. I plan on taking it to a lawyer and the NC Consumer Fraud Division and will seek my $200 remaing balance and the typical legal fees which should be significantly higher than the $200. I have spent close to three hous on the phone and on-line trying to get my money refunded. Bill raleigh, North CarolinaU.S.A.

AOL ripoff unarthorized billing USA USA
I signed up for a FREE 90 day TRIAL period with AOL. Don't you know those crooks charged my credit card, which I did not give them for 102.00. I called them and asked why, seeing I have not used their service but, only in the TRIAL period. I spoke with two differnt Reps. Both Reps told me two different stories. First rep said that I was being billed for 8 months of service. The second rep said that I was being billed for 4 months of service. The second Rep told me that I signed up for a 30 day TRIAL period, which is a lie. I still have the disk. It was a 90 day trial period. Both reps did agree that the service was not used past the TRIAL period. Recently I had my service through my local phone company. They admitted that they made a mistake and continued to charge me for services when they had shut the services off. They happily reimbursed me the monies that they charged me. Close to $300.00 dollars. But, noooooooooooooo not these crooks. They are operating illegally so close to the edge of the law that it is not funny. I predict that there will be a class action lawsuit against AOL involving former users that have been ripped off. I HATE AOL Louisville, KentuckyU.S.A.

AOL Ripoff Bank fraud Internet
I had downloaded a free virsion of aol internet. It stated if I did not want to continue my membership to contact aol before my free trial was up. (note I had given aol a banking acount # from an account that was made just incase aol tried to refuse my choice to cancel) I contacted an aol rep through the proper chanels to cancel my membership. The operator refused to accept the words I do not want your services They said they would extend my services for 3 more months for free. I said I didn't want them. I was then passed to what was supose to be a superviser. No one answered the phone. I waited a short while and called again I was given the same run around and routed to a phone that was not answered. When I finally called several times and asked to cancel they offered me more months I refused and wanted to cancel. Again I was given a do not take no responce and was routed to the same no answer line. That was over 7 months ago. I had went to my bank and put a block on any attemp from aol to withdraw from my account. I just recieved 11/6/04 a statment from my bank that I was overdrawn from my account and there was a charge of $23.90 from aol and $25. for overdraw fee. I was furious I called aol and they said they didn't even have my bank account number. But they some how had gotten my credit card number. Now I am even more upset. I asked the rep to speek to a supervisor. (BIG MISTAKE) I was routed to the infamous never answer phone. If there is anyone taking action with a law suit please contact me. I will be glad to give any and all information stating how they committed bank fraud and stole money from my account. I now have to cancel my credit card and change bank accounts at my cost just to prevent aol from steeling from me. Timothy Farmington, MissouriU.S.A.

Aol Netmarket ripoff Nationwide
I got up on a friday morning and checked my account balance online only to find a $79.99 charge to my account from a company I have never heard of. I called the phone number on the charge only to be told that there was no record of me ever purchasing anything from the company (they searched using all sorts of different information). The company asked me to send a fax of the charges which I did. I called back four hours later and they told me that they did not know what was going on and that it would take three days to figure it out. They kept telling me that I was obviously a member if they charged me, like I was stupid or something. I asked to talk to a supervisor and they continued to tell me that, even though they have no record of my membership, I must be a member. Finally my fiance talked to a supervisor at this company and found out that they had renewed an aol service from two years ago (a service that I cancelled a few weeks after signing on for). Now they tell me that it will take 10-15 business days to credit me back and that in 30 business days they will decided whether or not the overage charges which I incurred because of this will be reimbursed. They caused the overage, they should reimburse my money. Lisa Reno, NevadaU.S.A.
