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.
