As I am a first time customer with Amazon I got online, I found what I was looking for so I ordered the product, the rep talked me into a 2 day delivery. I said no I am not in a hurry, so then he tells me it was something they did for first time customers.

Based on his assurance that they did this for all the new customers I chose that option. THIS MAN LIED TO ME !! Now I see what he DID NOT TELL ME was the fact that they would use my debit card to charge me without my consent or knowledge for this " Prime Account ". I WAS NOT TOLD THAT THIS CHARGE WOULD HAPPEN AND IF THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN HONEST AND NOT DECEITFUL I would have canceled their Prime B.S.

Account right away!!!!!!

Now I have been in business myself for 30 years, I HAVE NEVER DECEIVED ANYONE in all my deals and transactions !! I am not an *** or inattentive when it any business or purchases. The action of Amazon.com taking the $ 99.00 for their " Prime Account ' out of my bank account without my knowledge or consent or notifying me caused my account to over draft. I don't have money due to the fact that I am on Worker's Comp.

disability. I got hurt in another huge company's vehicle. HEY Jeff Bezo IS THIS HOW YOU DO BIZ WITH ANY AND ALL CUSTOMERS ?!! Do you always TAKE ADVANTAGE of your new customers, especially disabled people ?!!

So today I find out about this at my bank. I could not cash my check due to this over draft. I come home, get online go to my Amazon account, open it up and what do you know THERE IS NO CONTACT INFORMATION on Amazon's website. On Amazon's website why do they post no email or phone contact info.

Is this done on purpose? HMMMMMMMM! I have been Decieved!! JEFF BEZO you had better get me contact info to get this $ 99.00 plus the over draft fees refunded.

IF THERE IS NO RESPONSE BY YOU OR YOUR COMPANY IN 7 BUSINESS DAYS, IT'S OFF TO MY LAWYER'S OFFICE, THEN My next stop is the United States Federal Justice Department and the office for Disabled People.

Oh by the way its a crime to deceive Disabled People and this transaction was over state lines. Where do we go from here JEFF ??????

'they stole from me because they knew i was disabled so now i'm going to find a lawyer and get my money back'

that doesn't sound hasty and retarded at all

like yeah part of it's their fault for not letting you know but it's also yours for just clicking *** without reading it carefully mr. i've been in the business 30 years

Just happened to me. If the business "contract"/transaction relies on deception and consumer is unaware of the "deal", it's a freakin scam. Amazing what large corporations are willing to do to make money.

In order to not have amazon steal your money I would suggest buying custom gift cards with the amount you need to buy a product. This stops amazon from withdrawing from your cc.

Same thing happened to me, I canceled the membership, but I am still pissed and not doing business with a shady company like Amazon.

"the rep talked me into a 2 day delivery" so you had to have talked to someone at some point. Now you complain that you can't find a phone number?

I found one when I searched the site, very easily. I was charged an extra $99 by accident and called them. Poof, taken care of, same day, one call.

BTW threats on Pissed Consumer site really have very little to do with Amazon. I really doubt they scour these sites.

ME TOO!!! My son got a 'Kindle Fire' for xmas 2 years ago, and I logged on to my Facebook account to hook him up to a game.

The next day I was at the grocery store, and when I swiped my card, it said "Funds not Available". I immediately called my bank, and they said Amazon took $99 out of my account for 1 year of Amazon Prime. I called Amazon and cancelled, but it's a good thing I caught it, or they would have gotten me. You only have a few days to cancel or it's a done deal.

All because I logged onto the device with my email address! My bank is linked with my Paypal account, which is linked to my email address. I had to change everything, even my account # so no one could *** me (again).

They are banking on people that don't immediately notice their funds are missing. BEWARE!!!

My husband was just charged 99.00 for a membership also. We have not ordered anything from Amazon Prime.

This is crazy !

We had to shut our account down at the bank while we dispute the charge meanwhile we live on a fixed income so the little we have they are trying to take. I don't understand how they got his information in the first place.

This same thing happened to me. Do you know if there is any way I could get my money back?

They did the same to me! They charged my credit card $106 for Amazon prime without me knowing.

I just happened to catch it. If they do this to everyone and only a few catch it they are really making out.

I got billed too and talked to my bank. They told me that they have had many complaints about this.

I called Amazon and raised ***. They said they will take it off of my Visa bill.

This kind of stuff really makes me mad especially coming from a big company.

I got charged over $130 on my account without knowing, now I have to fight to get it refunded because they haven't even refunded me the full amount.

I was also deducted $99 dollars for signing up for a free trial. The trial didn't work and it kept telling me that my card was not being accepted.

I never used nor did I even know I had a free trial! Then I'm charged $99!

For a total of $106 with taxes! Were you refunded your money?!

I knew something was fishy when it said prime up top. I hadn't signed up for anything and there it is.

I checked my bank and email but nothing said anything about it. I wanted to order something for my boyfriend and the shipping had an prime option. My memory tells me it was the only one but I don't remember well. Still nothing saying anything about why I have prime.

A month later I realize I have a -$99 in my bank account processing. A couple months ago hulu charged me when I forgot to end the trial in time. Spent $45 from overdraft learned my mistake. But I didn't even sign up for prime free trial!

It wasn't plastered everywhere that this was going on. I saw no charges and so I didn't think much more about it. Still waiting on my refund of hopefully $135. I can't believe a trusted site as "amazon" plays sketchy games!

After this I'm never buying from them again and sure to tell everyone I know. I've had better service from eBay and boy am I shocked..
