I signed up for one of the $2 google info products, not realizing i was being automatically signed up with several other products/services that charge $35 - $45 a month, EACH!
all the others have kindly reimbursed me, but socialtoolkit has taken the stance that if i agreed to the terms, wittingly or unwittingly, then they have every right to keep my money. they know full well that i am less than pleased, and that i plan on exposing their deceptive business practices, but apparently a quick $35 is more important to them than the reputation of their company; which they insist is legit!
what i find annoying enough is this new business practice of signing people up for services they don't even need, nor want, and then giving them a certain time period to cancel. but these guys have taken it to a whole new level of annoying! not only do you end up signed up for several services you don't need, nor want, but you have no idea which services they are until your credit card gets charged!!! there's no email sent, informing you of all the companies that now have you signed up, so that you can go and check them out and make an informed decision of whether or not you want to cancel. no, you're just expected to pull their websites out of your ass!!! you're just expected to know each and every company's website and length of trial period. all the while, these same companies claim to be involved in improving social networking! are they so daft to not realize their deceptive business practices do nothing to improve their own reputation amongst the social networking community???
shame on google for being part of, if not fully responsible for, this sort of deceptive business practice.
