I foolishly signed up with Safe Home Security three years ago.  It was a 3-year contract for $42.99 a month charged to my credit card.

I lost a good-paying job, and tried to cancel, but they wanted all the money then and there to cancel.  I couldn't afford to do that, so I had to keep paying and paying until the contract ran out.

Last month I got a call from them telling me my contract was about to expire, that they were increasing the billing amount by $1 a month, and that I would receive something in the mail I'd need to sign and send back.

I never received anything in the mail, but I immediately wrote a letter of cancellation, since I still have to do that to end this miserable contract.

The first letter didn't make it because Safe Home moved their office (Stacy told me a YEAR ago) and never notified me of their new address.  So I had to send another letter of cancellation.

Stacy called me to tell me the contract automatically renewed itself, that I can't cancel, and her supervisor will tell me the same thing.

So, the contract renewed ITSELF, before it even EXPIRED!  I never had a chance to get out.

Great little scam they've got going.  What do I do now?  I can't afford this.  I'm never going to be able to get out of this - they have it set up so that you can't possibly get out of it.  They move, too, to avoid cancellation letters.

These idiots are TWICE as expensive as other companies.
