I believe this website practices are deceptive. NO where did I see that our short chat would cost $38. I put a $5 deposit in expecting to be given additional instructions. All of a sudden you were available. I cut the conversation short and now I am charged $38 . This better not be automatically every month I did not sign up for that.
