BlackBeltprft / Illegal charge to my checking account
Purchased some instructions from them on how to build an internet business. their advertisement was that it cost $3.95. No where on this site did it say anything about that this was a "trail" service and that I would later be billed $149.95 per month. They e-mailed me a down load link to down load the PDF file which is what I though I was purchasing for $3.95. I down loaded the file and it was pure garbage. No useful information at all. I just forgot about the incident figuring I lost $3.95. Two weeks later they debited my checking acount for $149.95 without any prior notice or warning and without my authorization. When I called them, they said that I had agreed to a "trial" period and that after the trail it was $149.95. After several minutes of arguring with them, I finally gave up. I did send an e-mail requesting my money back which they denied. I finally had my bank do a charge back to get my money back.
This practice is just pure trickery and should be against the law. I later found out that at the very bottom of their web site, in very, very small letters, mixed in with some other links, was a link to the Terms and Conditions. If one clicks on this link, it vaguely describes some sort of business service that they charge $149.95 per month for and describe a trail period.
this is just wrong. they need to be shut down.
