I'm pretty angry right now, and I'm only posting this here because some of you may have been/will be hit by this too. Anyone buy things on Amazon? Yeah...most of do right? Well, read on...
I look at my bank account this morning, and there's a $79.00 pending charge for something called "Amazon Prime". Now I have no idea what this is, or why the heck it's coming out of my account, so I'm starting to get a little freaked out. I Googled Amazon Prime and found out it's...you guessed it, from Amazon! Apparently, I'm not the only one that's had this happen to them...there's tons of people on Google yelling about it, and when you call into Amazon's customer service they mention the Amazon Prime thing immediately in the pre-recorded message.
So I called Amazon, and asked why I was charged for something I didn't even know existed until this morning. She said, because I had bought something on Amazon that was "eligible
" to sign me up for the Amazon Prime feature...it did
...just automatically. They apologized and said they'd refund my account, so we got started on that.
And here's the real kicker. On my Amazon account page, it says, 'You are not currently signed up for Amazon Prime'. So I'm not signed up, but I'm still being charged. So now I have to wait for an investigator to get back to me, because they need to find out what happened. ARRRG! I just want my money back!
Anyways, please, if you do anything with Amazon, make sure to watch yer bank accounts. I'd hate for this to happen to someone else.
