    I was rooked by as well. I cancelled within a few hours of signing up and they still billed my Mastercard the full month. I now re-cancelled and just hoping they do not bill my Mastercard for another month.

    Same thing happened to me. What happened to me was when I tried to sign up there was an error after I put my credit card info and hit submit so I clicked off the browser because it wouldn't let me go any further in the registration process. I never download software or music ..never even went back to the site . I assumed something was wrong with the website registration.stupid me. not even 2 weeks later I get charged $9.99 on my credit card. I sent numerous emails to and received nothing but the same automated crap. I was forced to cancel my credit card because I have read other people keep getting charged despites their attempts to cancel. I don't even have an account with the people but hmm that credit card info went right through despite the error I received to try again later. BEWARE! I reported them today to BBBonline

    UPDATE. All it took for me was reporting them to BBBonline and in 1 day my money was refunded back to my account and the bank refunded the overdraft fees. Here is the copy of the email they sent me after I reported them. hope this helps someone. It took me 5 days of getting no where til I got frustrated enough and contacted BBB.

    I did cancel all in the same transaction and was still billed $9.99 for ebooks so far, 15 days later. apparently I have to also contact the BBB.

    I never signed up for e-music,but was charged a 9.99 fee. After calling the 1-866 number and following there instructions,my acc. was billed again. I just called 1-212-300-2856and talked to a live person,told himto cancel. He gave me a confirmation # and assured me there would be no further charges. We'll see.

    I am being billed as all of you are too, and just now have called repeatedly the 212-300-2856 number, and never had a chance at all to speak to a live person. I am very angry, and could only leave that message that way. I am disputing at my bank, which I suggest you all do, they do stop the billing immediately for things like this, and if you have a good bank they should do the same, hopefully either your bank or your credit card company should stop the billing as it is being disputed. Also, print out a page like this and use it for your credit card, or bank. This is total evidence of a corrupt company eating up our money each month.

    I have never used emusic however they have been charging me 9.99 for almost a year. I have called in before and canceled it however they are still charging me. They dont have a number where you can voice your complaints to a real rep. and all I keep getting is a directerly to a web site I cant find. I a very disappointed that this cannot be handed civily, but once I get a hold of a real representative it wont be handled civily trust me.

    e-music includes 50 free downloads with mp3 players I bought for my two children for christmas they charged my account immediatley 14.99 and also two 1.00 charges on a 50 free downloads. I canceled my account yet my checking account wsa charged again in Jan. and again in Feb. Which in turn overdrafted my account, on top of all that when I cancled my accuont they erased my kids 50 free downloads when that was all I wanted in the first place.I contaced spi the mp3 player co. I was told my account would be credited that was in late Dec. or early Jan. I was never credited and they charged my account two more times to the tune of 9.99 each time plus overdraft fees someone needs to pay me back all of my money. Maybe if the attorney genral gets enough complaints emusic will be put out of their rip off buisness.

    I have cancelled E Music 4 times and they keep taking money out of my account. I tried it once and couldn't figure it out. And I cancelled it. I sent them an E mail And text them twice I guess I'll close my account.

    Emusic has no ethics or integrity in dealing with what they deem " a service like cable you pay for whether you use it or not" I have not ever been so infuriated by a company whose answer to customer service is basically "too Bad"

    They owe me over 9 months I did not use the service but sent a cancellation on.

    I even have my music on their site and I want it off!

    Never Again.

    I want my money back and out of this crap. I tried to cancel before the trial date but was ignored. I'll cancel my card if it takes that to get out of this. This website has nothing that I want and it was suppose to be free for rhe first 50 downloads which trhere is nothing on the website that even remotely interests me.

    On Friday I noticed a charge for $19.99 on my bank statement (which I rarely check because the particular account that was being billed is not my primary account). At first I thought someone had stolen my credit card info, after some digging I realized that the charge was associated with a free trial I had received with my new cingular phone last year. I had signed up for the free trial but was unable to download their music. I did not notice anything stating that I had to cancel or be billed, nor did emusic ever send out any emails or information regarding this supposed account. Emusic had been billing me $19.99 per month since May 2007 for an account that I didn't even know existed. What's worse, I am only allowed to dispute charges up to 60 days prior with my bank.

    I am a member of a number of sites that bill automatically and I get an email from them every month advising of activity on my account/lack thereof. Emusic is undoubtedly aware that most consumers are unaware of this automatic upgrade and therefore fail to send any emails alerting the consumer of the existing account. I have tried to contact them repeatedly via phone to no avail. I am awaiting a response to an email I sent to them. I intend to report them to the better business bureau and possibly my state's attorney general. I will be certain to pay closer attention to my bank statement's from now on.

    Something should be done about this E-music scam. My granddaughter recieved a gift card with a MP3 player for Xmas. We proceeded to go to the website and joined. She couldn't download from my computer so her father said he would do it on his computer. Therfore I have been trying to cancel this charge since Dec. I'm really getting frustrated with the phone number and the so-called cancel e-mail. I sent one and it came back a week later. What's up with that? I think this is against the ethical rules of the web. They should be investigated. I'll go to my bank and put a stop to it this month. Ridiculous!!f2f7b

    I have been billed by emusic since last october and never signed up for this account. I have tried several times since reviewing my credit card statements to have this account canceled. I was then informed by my credit card statement that i have been billed since october for this service. I finally had to contact the state attorney general office and then inform emusic that if this account was not closed the attorney general's office would take legal course.

    Thank God Im not going crazy, cause I have been completely ripped OFF! This sorry azz website cant even offer me music if it were the last place on earth. I have been "so called", closing the account for over 3 months and you still continue to bill me this $9.99. If I see one more charge on my account, you will here from my attorney!
