Have anyone experienced this. I requestedd a CD from google for $1.95, to find out about how to make money on google, I had the option to cancel the membership within 14 days which I did. Suddenly I started seeing $7.95, and $9.95, deducted from my checking account. I thought maybe it was something my husband ordered, since he is a web designer. I always forgot to ask him about it. Today, I decided to look these companies up on the internet, since there was a toll free number and a company name. I saw many complaints from consumers about how these companies were frauds. I called the number, and the lady told me that I had signed up for the CD in December, I told her that I had cancelled the membership, and that no one told me that there were additional memberships to cancel. I told her that I wanted it canceled and that I had not authorized these deductions. She canceled it for me. Beware, if you request that so called free CD, and just pay shipping and handling, they are going to stick you with additional charges for something you didn't consent to. Buyer beware!!!!!!!!

Not exactly the same experience. I was supposed to be able to go to the website and cancel the membership, but when I got there it wouldn't let me sign in. It said I had to call a certain number, which by the way, was on the web site that I couldn't sign onto. When I finally got the CD, long after the free trial period ended, there was a telephone number on it. I called and was told that I was supposed to have called the number to cancel before the trial period was up and there was nothing she could do about it. I raised *%$$ with her and she said well, she was authorized to "present it to her superior" and they would see what could be done. I told her to "See" that the charge was taken off my credit card, or I'd seek alternative action! It took 2 months but the charge was reversed.

Oh!! really? Thanks for the information!! Most internet users are really curious to try specially if the offer is free. and yes that's what I heard too from relatives who have been screwed up because of fraud. This is a good information and I hope others would be able to read this so that they will be aware of what will happen next if they are not careful.

That's true, and when I called to cancel whatever the $7.95 charge was, she never said that there was another amount being deducted from my checking, when I asked if there was any other deductions she said oh yeah you are being charged $9.95 for network agenda. I can not believe I let this go for so long Really thought it was something my husband signed up for.
