    Hi everyone,

    I signed up to subscribe platinum services from about 2 years ago, and no longer need the service, so I called to cancel.

    The operator said that the cancellation is completed. Until I asked what the effective date is, she didn't disclose this. It will become inactive as of 10/31/11.

    I would have to continue to pay til 10/31/11 because it's an annual contract. Well I said I am not aware of that. She said that they sent a notice with a term change back in October of 2010. If I didn't cancel then, it gets automatically renewed for a year.

    This doesn't seem very reasonable, but is this what you guys experience either with or any other service?

    Any input or suggestions will be appreciated.

    I wouldn't cancel. How else can you get that kind of info for that low of price? Even if you are taking a break from tradng. Even for years. Don't you want that knowledge. Lets say you do some investing trading in 5 or 10 years from now. All that you pay could be made up in one trade.

    Just cancel your credit card, then they can't charge you. Also, do a charge back for last month. It's not fair that they change the terms in the middle, your credit card will side with you.

    If I just cancel my credit card, Briefing can report to whatever credit agencies to affect my credit history, doesn't it?

    I don't think it's fair that they change the terms and automatically renewed my terms. I failed to check the email but they should give me a break and just let me cancel.

    I will pay you the FULL amount of the remaining subscription if you stop posting this dribble.:D
  7. Dispute the charge with the credit card.

    Another option is to let them know you'll be setting up the website and doing your best to publicize what a scam they are. Also have a friend call them and claim to be from a news station and say they want to do a story on the subscription scam.
