Classmates / unauthorized charge

1 United States Review updated:

Fraud of the decade: after having a free classmates membership for a year, classmates offered me a special one-year gold membership for $19. I accepted but after a few months I realized that the information on the site was stale and I planned to let my membership lapse. Classmates had other ideas, however.

Without my knowledge or authorization, they billed my paypal account $39 for an annual subscription. I emailed classmates a half-dozen times and each time they responded with the same "canned" email: they were sorry that I canceled my membership but I should continue to enjoy the service for the next year —
In other words, "screw you, sucker!"

I filed a complaint with paypal but they dismissed my claim for an absurd reason that was pure double talk and had nothing to do with unauthorized use of my account.

I wrote my state attorney general's office asking them to investigate classmates. This company must be put out of business.

    read the fine print, like every other website out there, once you subscribe - you automatically renew. you have no recourse unless you call beforehand and have written proof.

    its all on you buddy.
