Justanswerunauthorised charge for membership

P Apr 29, 2019 Review updated:

you have charged my bank card with $71.41 for membership which I did not agree to or request. You previously charged me for answering a question which was paid by me but I did not agree to a membership. Please reverse this charge .
You answered my problem at the time which was very helpful and you were paid for the information so I cannot understand why you would assume that I would like a membership of you site.
I look forward to receiving a credit for $71, 41 immediately.

    I also am having a similar situation. They charged me for a question and said I had a 7 day trial. They then charged me $46. I emailed the support and asked for a refund. They told me that they reviewed my account and said they couldn't issue me a refund for whatever reason. I haven't used the service since the initial question I asked. I only agreed to the trial not membership. I'm going to be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau because I see on there website that they are accredited and since I see so many fraud claims on this website, I am just going to tell my bank that the purchase was fraudulent and have them refund me the money.

    Today you charged me $28.00 for what? I did not authorize this. Refund this money or I will have my bank refund this amount. I paid 5.00 for a question about a small engine question. It took over 48 hours for answer that was not even relevant to the situation. At that time I told you to cancel my subscription. if you do not refund my money I will have the cancel your fee and call the Attorney Generals Office. Fraud claims seem to be a major part of your business model.

    Same here! So far the worst experience I have ever had with a company. I have never posted a bad review in my life. But JustAnswer is that one scamming company that's taken me there. I'm completely disgusted with this company.
    I had paid $5 to have one question answered, this was an offer on their website. I got answer and was billed $5 immediately. A whole month later, I see new charge on my account, they took $46 out of my account without notifications! I immediately called as I was horrified. I was told that this was a membership fee that was coming with the $5 question I had asked a month prior. What?!? At no point they clearly stated I would also be enrolling in such scam. They're offering you the opportunity to pay for a one time question at $5 but on top of that you're paying a secret membership? it makes no sense! Anyone with a brain who then pay for the membership alone and ask as many questions as they'd like. I spent 20 minutes over the phone with the supervisor who was very determined to hold on my $46 as if her life depended on it. They made me want to vomit. They stole my money and never sent me a heads up either.
    Gross company, do not recommend. You will be met with nasty surprises like this one.

    Ditto, same scenario. On 6/14/19 I went online for a simple problem with a pushbutton on our microwave that I wanted to use a spray lubricant on. There appeared to be no problem doing that. The problem was immediately solved. At no time did I agree to a monthly service membership. On 6/15/19 there was a $1.00 charge on my Visa card. On my next monthly Visa card summary was a $46.00 charge from "Just Answer Membership". Our call to our Visa Card bank was made the next day requesting a dispute for the $46.00 charge. The next day we received an email from Jeff Cavellini, Senior Director, Customer Service, Just Answer saying, "Your membership has been cancelled."
    We had received no refund of the $46.00 charge. Over a month later, on 7/22/19 at 1:00 am, we received another email from Just Answer saying, "Your membership has been cancelled as of today. You will no longer be billed on a monthly basis." Again, there has been no refund of the $46.00 membership charge. This appears to be a scam that draws you in to a unwanted monthly membership after asking help for a simple one-time problem.

    Same thing happened to me but I was charged $60.00. Was also told I could not get a refund because the web site somewhere has a disclaimer. I had one question paid for that never wanted a membership.
