Uninstalling the app will not automatically stop your subscription — you must actively cancel the subscription using the process described here. If you uninstall the app but don't cancel your subscription first, you will still be charged. And you can always unsubscribe or change the subscription plan anytime before the current subscription period expires.)

If you subscribed to the services (Anywhere Access Pack or Productivity Pack, et al.) via the Google Play Store (from the Android mobile devices), you only can unsubscribe the services from there. Here we have summarized the related information about the "unsubscription procedures" on the Google Play Store. Follow these steps to cancel a subscription on your device:

Launch the Google Play Store app.
Tap Menu -> My Apps -> Subscriptions and tap on the app of the subscription you’d like to cancel.

Alternatively, tap Menu -> My Apps -> Tap the app of the subscription you’d like to cancel -> Tap the app’s details page. (Reminder: "Splashtop 2" is now known as "Splashtop Personal.")

Tap “Cancel” and “Yes” to confirm the cancellation.

Now, the status of this Subscription has been changed from Subscribed to Canceled.

Google google stole my money

I'm attaching your CEO to the email. I spoke to your supervisor regarding this email and phone call. I repeatedly asked you speak with someone above him and he denied me. I was still talking and he referred me he was disconnecting the call and transferring me to the email. He actually hung up on me preventing me from getting an email. I've also submitted this email on your Google Plus pages as well. I'm not ok with what has occurred today.

Google adword


I was charged $147.34 for a campaign that I was aware of it and that I never authorized, no matter what your agents say. I never intended to purchase a service nor was I informed that I was going to be charged.

Adwork refused to accept that I did not intended to buy anything and was told that the service was provided ¿?.

That amount was charged to a Credit Card whose number I gave to Google in 2016 for other purposes. I never authorized Adwork to charge any amount to that or any other card. I never authorized any charge.

I was offered a credit of $73.00 because I was not informed that I was going to be charged, etc. After a long discussion, I had no choice but accept the $73.00 credit.

But it was insulting that the credit that I receive for a product that I did not wanted to buy, and that, by the way, did not worked for me at all, WAS NOT CREDITED TO MY CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT, that means, was not returned to me.

It was given me to buy more adwork products, exactly the products that I never intended to buy and that I don't want to buy.

That is an insult and a joke.

Google is treating me with disrespect. Making a charge that I did not consent and using a credit card that I registered in 2016 and that I never authorized to be used to make any adword charge is the closest thing to a scam that I have seen.

A company like Google does not need to use this kind of practices.

I expect a proper and professional action on part of Google to refund me the $147.34 that I was charged.

Google raghu daripalli myvisajobs h1b careers toronto hyderabad kolkata boston

Baanyan Software Services is a criminal organization run by Raghu Daripalli. He lures fresh graduates on OPT and gullible Software Engineers from India only to turn them into indentured laborers and destroys their lives.

Don't believe me? See

Go to and Enter Raghu Daripalli to see the court cases.

For other states, like California, Google search "California Court Records" (

You may also want to search "Baanyan Software Services Complaints" ( and "Raghu Daripalli Complaints" (

Everything that Baanyan Software Services and Raghu Daripalli claim is fake and made up. Even there clients and employees on social media are fake.

If you are a victim of an Indian Body shop, make all their dirty laundry public on as many places on the internet as possible (use good keywords in the subject) and contact the DOJ, FBI, IRS (money laundering/ tax evasion), FinCEN (Financial Crimes
Enforcement Network), ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), Interpol and any other law enforcement entity that has jurisdiction over their crimes. You can do this anonymously by using the TOR browser, a VPN or even a good proxy.

Raghu Daripalli and his associates are not wired properly, they are without ethics and moral. Baanyan Software Services and Raghu Daripalli will not pay you. Raghu Daripalli and Baanyan Software Services will make you sign an iron clad contract. The contract in itself will not hold up in court (see, so Raghu Daripalli and Baanyan Software Services will find something he can blackmail you with. If he cannot find anything, he will lure you into doing something illegal and then blackmail you with it. They will slowly grind you down. And when you are no longer needed, then they will have you deported.

A much better way to get actual court files (nationwide) is to use the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) service ( First you'll need to locate the case using PACER Case Locator ( These are public records and you can post them publicly. I wonder who Raghu Daripalli's crook lawyer is.

Raghu Daripalli is a conman who doesn't pay his employees, doesn't pay his bills and doesn't pay taxes.
He runs Baanyan Software Services like any other Indian Body Shop. People don't realize what they have gotten themselves into until it's too late.

One of Raghu Daripalli's company was Software Research Group. The sole purpose of this company was to lure in gullible people, put them in indentured labour and defraud companies. Software Research Group was debarred by the US Government. Google search "Raghu Daripalli Software Research Group" (
You can find out every employer who has ever been debarred by the US government for visa fraud from (*/ People don't change, a thief will always be a thief. If you have the time, compile a list and post it everywhere.

Here are Raghu Daripalli's accomplices (from
- Sakhuja Supriya (Computer Solutions and Technologies Inc., First Tek)

- Linda Bota (Is she real?)
- Sanjay Gupta (This guy left --- see --- but Raghu Daripalli still lists him as an LCA for Baanyan Software Services)
- Ramesh Seri (Is he real?)
- Meenakshi Avancha (Is she real?)

Indian body shops like Baanyan Software Services regularly bring in gullible people on tourist visas and put in indentured servitude. Indian body shops do this by STEALING THE IDENTITY of lawful workers and giving it to their illegal immigrants workers. Can you imagine the damage this will do to you?

Indian body shops are like Mafia organizations, you can join but you can never leave. If you leave, they will try to destroy your life.

Google google home support

I recently placed a call to the Google Home support department about Home Control. I called the first time to ask if I needed a google home to use Home Control or if my Pixel phone would do. I had setup Home Control already and it wasn't working so I wanted some assistance. I was told that I did indeed need to purchase a Google Home to use this feature. This was wrong, but I can forgive the error. There was no attempt to troubleshoot or resolve my issue, I was just told to buy a Google Home.

So I bought one and low and behold it still didn't work. I called back and rather then troubleshoot I was told that there was an outage. The internet knew nothing about this, but I did as I was told and waited the 24 hours for it to be resolved. This was on Saturday.

I waited until Monday and called back only to be told again after reading the notes on file that there was still an outage and I needed to wait another 48 hours.

Later that evening I got an email telling me that I had to submit a Feedback Report online about my issue. I did that.

On Tuesday I called back was told that they still hadn't received my report but that someone would call me back within 24 Hours.

On Thursday after not being contacted again at all I figured out the issue myself by searching for similar issues on the web.

Not once did anyone try to troubleshoot with me! They just kept telling me to wait.

I am very dissatisfied with this support!

Google unauthorized charges

I’ve noticed a $29.99 and $9.99 recurring charge on my bank statement. I can’t find anyone that will answer a call about reversing these fraudulent charges. There are no apps I’ve purchased. I have no android devices. I do not subscribe to g suite. I’m going to call my bank to report these charges since the merchant is not interested in making themselves available.

Google google wallet

Transaction ID L.02B5-0D4C-ACA7-B453
Email: [protected]

I used Google wallet for the first time, I received payment in US dollars and got an email confirming that and that I should claim it. I thought because the payment had been sent and Google confirmed that meant the money was mine now. However when I tried to claim it it went to pending and I contacted a number online Support specialists all who were very unhelpful during this stressful time telling me it was impossible for to claim the funds as I was from the [removed] .

WHY would I receive the email, it was extremely misleading. Now in 14 days MY money will be sent to the sender, who is not going to send it back to me. I will lose MY money and that is very unfair. THe service was disgusting and I have tried begging the specialists but they did nothing.

I would like something done about this, preferably before the funds are sent back to the sender as I have been trying to take action to claim my money every day.

I look forward to you reply,

Google google*svcsapps member

There was a false charge made by "GOOGLE*SVCAPPS_membe" to my credit card on 06/02 for $327.09. Spoke with a Google Services representative who while very nice, was useless in her support.

She informed me that the charge was made by some account not associated with me in any way, but that she could not tell me who made it, what it was actually for, nor could she refund the money.

She highly suggested that I contact my credit card company and have them mark the charge as fraud and work with them to obtain a refund. So they admit they have a customer using my card without permission, but it is up to me to work with the credit card company to resolve it.

Google google fraudulent charges.

1-17-17 google charged my card $992. Google entered into a contract with me to return these funds. My bank was also on the phone and they say it is VISA policy they can no longer handle the issue once google took it over. 1-21 $492 was refunded to my account. There was ONE charge that was $500 that was never refunded. I called back the 21st and they told me it would show up within the 10 business days. It didn't so i called back. They confirmed again and said it would be 10 days. It has been a 10 day cycle since jan. In may tbey told me they couldnt help bc it had been over 120 days. NOT my fault. They keep telling me to contact my bank and i have told them at least 20 times my bank will not handle it bc visa policy states it is solely googles obligation since they promised to return my funds. Some reps tell me its refunded and check back in 10 days. Some reps tell me they can't refund it. Some reps tell me i cant recieve these funds bc of the time limit. Some reps tell me they can not find it in their system and apologize. I have been hung up on and laughed at. I have been ignored for MONTHS! Idk what to do honestly. I'll include pictures of what my most recent rep sent me. It is confirmation of ONLY $492. I will also include a picture of the one $500 charge. Just that one charge alone is more than all of the refunds google gave me combined. This whole mess is insane. I haven't had a competent representative yet.
