Recently Amazon tricked us into upgrading to the prime account.They did this to my account and my daughters account which was not active for 8 months.

I could not locate a number to reach Amazon so I chatted with their customer service department who blamed us for accepting the 30 day trial. I explained when we place our order there was no option to say no to the 30 day trial. Never the less she said I was at fault. I said what about my daughters account which was inactive for 8 months.

The rep. stopped chatting and hung up. I had to go through my credit company to dispute the charges. Amazon charged our account without permission!

This is a fact. Their has to be something to say about this because Amazon has approximately 50 million customers and if they did this to all without permission then they just made $5,000,000,000 for January 2017. It's amazing how a company this powerful can legalize a scam.

Think about it and check your credit card statement.Best, Paul

What a scam!!! Tricked into paying for Prime! They don't even post their phone number or a way to contact them on their website.


Tricked into signing up fir Prime because they deliberately faded out the normal checkout button and put a dual button.

They are still at this scam inspite of being warned.



Impossible that an inactive account could be charged.. You lazy people should just go to the store to do your shopping instead of using amazon that steals your money lol


The same thing happened to's friggin ridiculous!


Prime is not automatic, you clown.

You have to opt in, there is no automatic Prime. When you opt in the screen goes dark accept for the explination that you are signing up for a trial and if you don't turn off the auto renew you will be charged.
