Dear all astute mac-ites, AOL has robbed me and probably has done the same thing to you. Basically, here's how the whole thing went down. I went to Compusa to have a look see at the macs (which were glorious!) and noticed at the cashier stand that if you opened a FREE aol account for three months that you could get a ten pack of dvd-rs. So I was like, SCHWEET! Did I need an aol account? Ofcourse not. But seriously, does anyone ever use their aol accounts past the free-period? NO BECAUSE IT SUCKS! My yahoo account is stupafast. Anyways, so two months after I got the account I called aol to cancel my account. Now, my brother told me that when he cancelled his account that the customer service would not cancel his service for like 30 minutes while the guy said, "NO, no, no, you dont want to cancel the service...you look at porn don't you?...ofcourse you do..you NEEd AOL for porn!!!!" So, basically, he told me that as long as you give them the information and tell them to cancel it that you can just hang up...BY LAW. So, that's exactly what I did. I gave them all my information to which the customer service agent said, "Great that's all the information I need!" Then I said, "I don't have to time to blau blau blau I just need my account cancelled. THANK YOU AND BYE!" So, my account's cancelled, right?WRONG! I guess the agent didn't cancel my account and I was charged for one year of allegedly using AOL! I found out that they had been charging me when I found my PERFECT credit blemished by aol's fraudulent charges. You see, I had cancelled that credit card I used for the aol account so I had no notice that they were charging me. So the charges were tolling up on my credit record. Did they ever send me a letter or make any effort to contact me for the unpaid charges??? Ofcourse not...because they're sick BASTARDS. Finally, when I called aol they told me that since there was no proof that I had called that I was screwed and couldn't get back my $153 that aol had wrongfully charged me. The moral of the story is NEVER use aol and tell all of your friends and family the same thing...even for some free dvd-rs...or you too will get it from behind.
