    Apparently there was some check box or something that I overlooked when I signed up for (formerly that allows their "affliliates" to have access to your credit / debit information.

    I got an email from that said the were going to start debiting my bank account. After spending time on the phone with MyLife (who had an "Oh well you must have authorized it attitude) and doing research I have located a toll-free 888-593-5216 at to cancel your membership.
    At first they ask for your membership number, telephone number, and creditcard number followed by the # sign. (YEAH RIGHT...I sure wasn't about to give them my phone number and credit card number again)
    I only entered the membership number and then the # sign. It took me to a menu to cancel. It said to hit a number to cancel and seemed to accept it.
    I also have been emailing the / people to complain about their association with this company. I can't believe that ultimately the revenue they might be getting for referrals is worth this bad press.

    Some companies so far I have identified using this tactic: (may show up on your bill as AP9 Savings Ace) (may show up on your bill as AP9 ShoppingEssentials, IK9 Shopping Essentials)
