Wed Detective Pro/Privacy Chest / Unfair Charges
This is a very sneaky and deceptive company. They advertise for a three day trial membership for $2.95, insisting that it's all you will pay, but in the fine print, you are locked into a 39.95 a month membership unless you call to cancel. Also in the fine print, you are signed up for a "free" trial of Privacy Chest, an identity theft prevention magazine. Well, I guess it would be free if you canceled right after you got it, but of course you don't know you have signed up until you get the notification that they charged your credit card yet another $39.95. Both these fees are non-refundable, and it is obvious that the company makes most of their money this way. It costs them basically nothing to provide services that you don't even know you have purchased, and then no refunds available. That's just evil. Plus, the web detective service didn't even work well, or help me at all to find my adopted brother I was looking for!
