GetHuman-pben335: Complaint of ripping off a recently-disabled person
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/21/17?
GetHuman-pben335: Dear Paul Joseph,* *Thank you for your e-mail and for the opportunity to respond to your concerns. * *We offer a credit report along with a trial membership to Credit Monitoring. Our website and the order form describe the offer in detail, including billing at the end of the trial and monthly thereafter unless and until the customer notifies us of their wish to cancel. The consumer agrees to these terms when submitting his*her order. * *Our records indicate that a credit report and trial membership was ordered and not cancelled within the trial period. Consequently, in accordance with the terms of the offer, the credit card provided was charged the monthly membership fee. * *Therefore, we are unable to grant your request for a refund at this time.* *Thank you for choosing Experian Credit Tracker*.* *Sarah C.* *Customer Billing Department* *--- Original Message ---*From: "*****@***.com" *Received: ********* **:**:** AM UTC*To: "CC* GAP (for Moxie Email)" *Subject: *WARNING: A*V UNSCANNABLE*Account ***********Hello,**I had a stroke a few months ago and have since signed up for several accounts I never intended to open. This one from Experian is the latest example. I used to go through my checking account like anyone else, but I just looked at it for the first time in a few weeks.**It was there that I found that I apparently subscribed to your service online. I “joined” on **** ** and was billed $**.** on ******** and was billed similarly in December. Customer Service removed the December charge, but the November one remains.**Please reverse the $**.**, as I did not intend to join. If you look into your system, you will see that I never once logged in. I don’t even have a user ID and password.**I appreciate your help in advance and can be reached at ***-***-****. I have attached below a story recently written about me that validates that I had a stroke.***Thank you,**Paul Joseph***------ Please do not remove your unique tracking number! ------ ***
