Back in December, while my sons were home, one of them made the comment that he thought my computer was running a little slow…. so I started paying attention to those speed-up-your-pc type commercials and after doing what I thought was some respectable research, I bit on one that didn’t promise FREE….. but what it did was offer a 1x scan and repair for $1.
I figured FREE was a gimmick….. and here was someone who was up front and willing to charge a small fee to a lot of people to make their profit. WRONG……
Last month, we got our credit card bill and I didn’t recognize the name of the vendor of that $1 charge…..but I told Joan that one dollar wasn’t worth the pain of trying to talk to that bank. WRONG.
So THIS month, we notice an $11.25 charge from the same vendor. I called the number on the bill and get a recorded message to “leave your number”.
As it turns out, when I did the dollar deal, there was some fine print that said that was for the first month’s subscription….. and I didn’t cancel in time. DANG IT!
ps….didn’t notice any difference on my computer either.
