All these companies are related and I suspect run online by just one indidvidual.  BnBStar, Travelgegia, Reommmendedinns.com Inspectedinns.com.  If you write to complain to Travelegia you get a response back from Elena at BnBstar! See below.  I joined one of these last year for about 69 dollars to list my vacation rental accommodation.  When I searched on line the website could not be found with my accommodation listing!  BUT, if I went back to my initial signup, they nicely provided a link to their website.  It is a phony website with no real presence at all!  

Then they charged me another 59. dollars for one of their affiliated advertisers listed above. With no communication about that.  I demanded a refund.  It did not come through.  I searched and searched for a way to change my account info (which you can on a legit web site) in order to change my auto renewl to manual or 'do not renew'.  I could find no access to this feature.  I wrote an email stating that I did not want to be renewed at the 1 yr. anniversary. They politley sent me back an email stating they would not renew my listing.

I can't find any where to adjust the auto renewal for the listing for xxxxxxx. I am closing and I will not be available to see your email that you are scheduled to send this fall. I do not want to renew automatically while I am away.

Dear Lottie,
Thank you for your email.
Following your request we won’t renew your membership for “xxxxxxxx ”.
Elena, Membership Director
Well, guess what?  Renewal came through on my credit card anyway.  I called my bank and claimed fraud and showed them the email confirmation.  I cancelled my credit card.  That was the only way to stop them. VISA refunded my  money.
To this date, I continue to receive numerous requests for free trial memberships etc to any and all of the above.  Records indicate they scam off about $84,000 in income yearly for actually posing to provide a legitimate service and to take payments authorized or not.  Wake up people, that's your advertising money they have!
(PS: admin - I did not make the indentation in the paragraphs. Spell check also would have been nice.  This was not really easy to complete, but I think it is worth complaining about.  I am so surprised more peole haven't. )
