Classmates.com Complaint - Automatic Renewal In Fine Print
CALIFORNIA -- Watch out when signing up, you're agreeing to an automatic renewal and they will NOT refund (or apologize for misleading you) if you catch it!
I noticed a fee on my bank statement from this company. Not recalling this authorization or desiring to renew membership, I contacted the company and explained that they had incorrectly charged me for a membership I didn't want to renew. This was their reply:
While purchasing a Gold membership, information just above the “Submit Payment” button explains that all Gold memberships are opted into our automatic renewal program. This automated billing process prevents any interruption in your Gold membership benefits.
In other words, "hello sucker...you're an idiot. And we have another $15 fee to put in our account until another sucker comes along."
