Yahoo! - Failure to provide unlimited free downloads
United States

I am a Yahoo customer in Rolling Meadows, IL. I also teach music, so when I was trying to find a DSL co., Yahoo's promise to provide unlimited free downloads of music for a year was the proverbial "too good to be true". What they didn't bother to tell me (and I had already told them I had a Mac), was that it's not compatible with a Mac. I have found it impossible to get ANY feedback regarding this problem - either in terms of reduced rates or an itunes gift card - SOMETHING. Instead, I have not even been able to speak to someone, email (their customer service window only allows for specific complaints), or even get an address to mail my complaint to. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THEM. The service has been ok, but they do NOT come through on their promos.

Yahoo! Mail - Broken and no timel resolution
Yahoo!
United States

I have had a personal domain with Yahoo for over 4 years for email and until today with no problems. For some reason it became flaky this morning and has basically stopped working. Four "chats" with support have yielded nothing other than to refer me to their "blog" which has nothing (other than some marketing drivel) about this problem. I suppose that some would be glad to have no problems with such a service for so many years when you stop getting possibly critical messages. I sure hope their new CEO hears about this. If they don't want me as a (small) customer say so and I'll find another provider.

I was looking for a place to moan and found this site (thanks for having it ) so go for it guys...spread this around...I would do more if I only knew where to do it.

Yahoo - Unauthorized billing
Yahoo
United States
yahoo.com

If you register a domain with you Yahoo! be prepared for sticker shock when the renewal date arrives. They will charge you $35 to renew the domain which is almost 4x what the going rate is. They will NOT give you a refund and make it almost impossible to transfer your domain over to another service such as GoDaddy. I have been on hold for 10 minutes trying to talk to someone. Stay away from these guys. Their company is having a lot of trouble and their customer service is completely in the dumps.
 1st of Jun, 2009 by    0 Votes
I saw a charge on my bank statement for $35 billed by Yahoo for a domain that I purchased from another service! The domain is "housed" at GoDaddy and has been for a couple years. In researching the issue with a Yahoo CS representative, I found out that Yahoo had billed me about $300 over the past two years. We are busy and dont scrutinize our bank statements as closely as we should as we never saw these.

I talked to Yahoo and their response, besides being completely bogus, was a complicated explanation that seemed designed to confuse the issue and get them off-the-hook. The manager that the issue was escalated to, said that my card must have been compromised and that the fraudsters had done this to test my card info. That makes no sense. So a person gets my card info and uses it to renew a domain at Yahoo. This is so stupid I cannot even believe that she offered it up as an explanation. First, the domains purchased were bought (originally by us) with a credit card not our bank debit card. They are business domains and decently obscure. Further, in reviewing our statements there did not seem to be any other fraudulent charges.

She refunded the $35 that started this entire investigation and said, "It was a billing error." Then when I complain about the other charges it is fraud. So which is it? I said I wanted to escalate this further and she said, "You can't." I laughed and said that I could sue Yahoo in small claims court. She said that since I said I am going to sue them she had to terminate the call.

Yahoo seems to be dying and desperate. I will pursue this and get my $300 or at least cost them $3, 000. I would stay away from them.

Yahoo.com - NOT Consumer-friendly
Yahoo
New York
United States

I have attempted to make contact with Yahoo.com to ascertain WHY e-mails from my ISP will NOT be received by my correspondent WITH a Yahoo.com domain.

In the course of trying to locate a "touch point, " via the Internet, it became quickly apparent that Yahoo really does NOT WANT to deal with PEOPLE

I also bore the expense of several phone calls to Yahoo hq., but all were failures. Couldn't even get them to acknowledge their new CEO's existence.

Thus, is it to be considered that Yahoo is going the way of AOL, Henry J. Kaiser, Chrysler Corp., Crosley, American Motors ? ALL these have one thing in common-------FAILURE TO LISTEN TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC!!! Yahoo doesn't HAVE to listen; just doesn't have to exist, either.
