Unauthorized Use Of My Paypal Account

I have reviewed both of my profile screens on my premium membership...and NO WHERE does it say that INTERFERENCEMEDIA (whatever the fuck that is) can go and AUTOMATICALLY take $12 from my PayPal account. I have NOT authorized this...and the owner of INTERFERENCEMEDIA (again, whatever the fuck that is) WILL be reported.

I am going to assume the Interference.com is now part of whatever this INTERFERENCEMEDIA is. I have not received ANY notification that this was going to happen...it just happened. If this is the annual membership...this is HORRIBLY unprofessional...HORRIBLY.

I WANT ANSWERS AND APOLOGIES NOW!

I'm assuming maybe you're joking. If not:

Interference is a subscription, that is how you signed up via Paypal. You probably don't recall the details of the information you were given when you subscribed. It will specifically tell you you are subscribing and the payment will be deduced on a yearly basis. If you wanted to cancel your subscription you should have followed these steps

Q.How are subscriptions and recurring payments cancelled?

A.PayPal members may cancel individual subscribers from their transaction history. Your subscribers may also cancel their subscriptions by following the steps below. A subscription can be cancelled up until the day of the next scheduled payment.

Here's How:

1)Log In to your PayPal account.
2)Click the History tab.
3)Click the Details of the subscription in question.
4)Click Cancel Subscription.
5)You have successfully cancelled the subscriber's subscription.

I just reviewed my PayPal account information (covering my bases) as well as the FAQ and my premium profile...I can't find ANYTHING about authorized yearly payments.

In my PayPal account...I see this:

Quote:
You do not have any Preapproved Payments billing agreements in place at this time.
Basically...INTERFERENCEMEDIA (again, I have NO clue what this is) has stolen money from me.

Listen...I feel it would be appropriate for a business to notify you BEFORE it takes money from you. No?

Sign in. Go to your history. From the drop down choose subscriptions and then put in a time frame (subscriptions with the past year). It should show up there. From there you also have the option to cancel it.

so...if I cancel this subscription...THEN someone at INTERFERENCEMEDIA (which is nothing more than a blank screen) will tell me that my premium subscription renewel will be coming up soon and I should set up a $12 payment...rather than just TAKIN the money from me.

I WANT A NOTIFICATION. Is that too much for a person to ask?

Premium membership at one point was a donation to Joel to keep the site up. A DONATION. I continue to donate and have no problem...but would appreciate if Joel would send out a NOTE to people telling his faitful bunch that the DONATION will be taken out of their account.

5)You have successfully cancelled the subscriber's subscription.

A SUBSCRIPTION is just that, a subscription, which is on a monthly, yearly basis etc depending on how you sign up. This is not just an interference thing, this is a common thing all over the net on various websites. I have subscriptions via paypal to various organizations which deduct my payment as needed, unless I decide to cancel.


Just follow the instructions above if you want to cancel your subscription, and send myself or Elvis an email and I am sure it wouldnt be a problem to refund your payment if you no longer wish to be a premium member.

again...this is assuming Joel is behind InterferenceMedia (I NEVER signed up to a subscription to INTERFERENCEMEDIA). Another case where informing those who have DONATED would be a nice thing.

NOTIFICATION is the point to having happy DONATORS!

Joel should COMMUNICATE.

I have NOT seen any e-mails or PMs about a change of name or upcoming yearly deduction for more than two years.

COMMUNICATE with your "customers" is a very basic concept.

I do NOT want my Premium cancelled...I DO NOT want to have money taken from my account without any PRIOR communication.

Got it?

You're not getting it. It's a SUBSCRIPTION. Subscriptions via paypal are AUTOMATICALLY deducted from your account unless cancelled.

Got it?

I can understand your objections, but I believe this is more of a PayPal issue than an Interference issue. I subscribe to another website through PayPal and the same thing happens as here: the payment is automatically deducted with no notification until after the payment.

I think it really would be nice if PayPal had a way of warning you a week ahead of time before a scheduled payment is deducted. And maybe there is such a setting if you dig in deep enough? I don't know.

When I authorized a payment in 2003, I authorized a payment for A year-long subsription to Interference...not an opportunity for the money to be taken from me yearly without my notice.

Again (and I doubt I will hear anything from whoever InterferenceMedia is), all I want is a communication. And now a new solution to annual donations.
