[Resolved] Intelius.com / wanted 24 hour pass and ended up with month's subscription and protection fees

1 WA, United States

I signed up for a 24 pass with INTELIUS for access to people search for a high school reunion.
I ended up with the fee for the 24 hours, 14.95; a month's fee, 19.95, and 24 protectionplus123 for 19.95.
None of these extra fees were clear on the original sign up.
When I received an email regarding my monthly membership, I called the number on the email immediately and cancelled the membership. They claim they never received that call.
This is a scam and I would like my complaint published to warn others about this scam.

    If you select a promotional price on the Intelius website, you will also receive a free 7 day trial of Identity Protect. After the 7 day trial, it will convert to a regular subscription and bill out at $19.95 monthly.

    However, there’s no obligation. If you determine within the 7 day trial that you no longer want Identity Protect, you can cancel your service anytime, online or over the phone with a customer support representative.
