TurboTax — cannot cancel account/horrible company
Other than TurboTax having minimal and useless customer service, an all around horrible product that you can get most other places for a fraction of the price and continuously send you emails even though you never agreed to recieve any- you cannot delete your account. You cannot cancel your membership. I wanted my PERSONAL information out of their database, out of the hands of their affiliates and after searching with a fine-toothed comb through the website for some way to get out, I emailed the comapany. Two days later I recieved this email:
Dear TaxACT(R) Customer:

Hows that for protecting your identity from identity theft? I can't help but think this website and the whole process is a scam and a phishing website. It's too late, I signed up for a low priced e-file and they wanted to charge me over $40 for a state return. Crooks. I got the same thing from a similar website for less than $20 and now these people have all my personal information and never supplied me with a thing.
