My DH recently filled out paperwork for a new job, but couldn't remember the street address in antoher state where we lived 20 years ago. I went on the web to whitepages.com and found a link for a site (Intelius.com) that can do all types of searches. There was a special for 95 cents, so I used my credit card to pay for it. Found out today that I've been charged for 3 additional specials for $19.95 each. According to their customer service, they sent me emails regarding these and didn't hear from me declining their offers, so initiated the programs. Doesn't that just frost you? I told them I didn't approve those charges, haven't used the services, etc. I was told they would cancel them w/o further charges until I said this was a real scam and thought I'd report them (not sure who to at the time, but. . .) They credited $40 in the end.
Just thought I'd pass on a warning about those emails that pop up in our boxes. Sometimes it doesn't pay to just delete things.
