Usenext and Usenet NLusenet providers charging for future services.


I have had similar problems with Usenet providers Usenext and Usenet NL, trying to charge a years subscription in advance.

As they have not yet provided the service, their legal and debt collectors threats are on very dodgy legal grounds.

The terms and cnditions do state that if you do not cancel, you will be charged for a years service.

However, were it to go to court, they cannot claim they have provided the service, as they have not.

In my case, I got threatening emails, and then snail mails. Mails to them were ignored, so I did the same and ignored theirs.

Usenext has stopped pestering me now, 18 months later.

Usenet NL are still pestering me and I am ignoring them.

I'd love go to court and show that they cannot charge for something they have not provided. It is a contractural scam.

    Exactly right. You cannot legally charge for a service you have not provided. A bunch of devious crooks.
