I used Intelius for a phone number search. I had a 7 day trial and I cancelled within that timeframe.
I have the email that shows I cancelled it. My credit card was charged $19.95 for 3 months afterwards. When I contacted them today I'm told I had entered my email address into something at the end of the screen which signed me up for this service. How convenient that she had this info...apparently it is quite hidden at the bottom of the screen.
Most people probably don't realize they did it. I will also be reporting this to the BBB and Atty Genl's office.
Monetary Loss: $60.
