Sometime in late 2017, I purchased something from Amazon. Shortly after I noticed an charge for nearly $80 for a Prime Membership, which I know I did not request.
When I purchased the item, I remember seeing that I would have a 30 day free Prime membership. There didn't appear to be anyway to not include the "free" membership, so I thought nothing of it at the time. I realize now that they are tricking customers into paying for something they do not want. As I had no way to choose NOT to have the 30 free membership, I don't know how they get away with charging me to continue on something I never chose to have in the first place.
I'm not sure how this is even legal. I'm a careful internet user and I was scammed, because they had my credit card information.
The worst part is that the membership is basically useless because I live in Canada.
I cannot watch any of the shows I want on Prime and the free shipping doesn't apply on most items. Completely useless.
