I hope you can. I decided to do the 7 day trial. I "signed"

Customer Question
HI..I hope you can...

HI..I hope you can. I decided to do the 7 day trial

Lawyer's Assistant: The Fraud Examiner will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Fraud Examiner can help you best.

Ok. I "signed" up for the 7 day free trail on the cbs I believe so that I could maybe watch Starz. They just had a few boxes you could click on and I had about made up my mind to drop the whole thing. I got to their site to find a message saying my free trial was over with and I needed to start paying monthly. I got my bill of $66+ I figured that was for a year. Wrong answer...the 2nd month bill showed up in my bank account for the $66 again. I don't remember even giving them my bank account info. How can I get out of this? I do believe that there was some slight of hand going on there. now, before I end this and send it to you...I need to know if there is a charge for your service?

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Alright

Lawyer's Assistant: Is there anything else the Fraud Examiner should be aware of?

Not that I can think of. I didn't even look at any other sites except to browse to see what might be of my interest. I am a widow on Social Security so I don't have lots of money to spare, especially not getting my choice of what I wished to do. My name is Sharon.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
