My experience with a dispute credit card charge

One more time, there is a case in this unethical pre-payment!
What can I say more than all the other cases? Chinespod is cheating their customers with some auto payment renewal , without inform clients prior issue date!
My experience last year I already got this issue, so I canceled my renewal from iPad . I had to switch out an option that I NEVER SWITCH IN! Meaning it’s Chinese pod responsibility and like many other clients I never get any messages/emails from Chinese pod to confirm it, but this year again!249$! So as soon as my bank informed me, I directly wrote to Chinese support, on the same date as the renewal, to explain the situation, this is stealing people money!!!
They don’t want to hear anything, claiming for their policy.
This is unacceptable.
Now I had to do the cancellation again, but this time from website.
I don’t know if the cancellation didn’t work the first time due to your upgrade version on iPad… but this is weird…
Anyway, I am expecting an explanation from your side and of course a refund for this unwanted/surprised/ and especially NOT INFORMED billing

Hello,

I’m very sorry that you have to go through the same issue two times, and I understand it must be incredibly frustrating for you to get charged unexpectedly. I have forwarded this problem to Paris, our student relation representative, and you will be hearing from her soon. Again, I’m sorry to hear about your negative experience, and I hope this issue get solved soon. I will keep following up on this case and update you here on the forum.

Sincerely,
Rebecca
