Classmates.com is a money grubbing, sleazebag website!
I got the 3 month paid membership in March 25, 2015. Then last month Classmates took $39.00 from my PayPal account for a year's paid membership. I discovered I had unknowingly authorized annual payments to Classmates. If you have a free membership with Classmates don't let them do this to you. If you have shelled out for a paid membership within the past 12 months go to Account in Classmates. Then Account & Billing to turn off Automatic Renewal or you'll get charged $39.00 one year from the time you took out your paid membership, whether it was for 3 months, 6 months or a year. You will also need to go to PayPal and cancel your authorization for Classmates to take any more of your money.
"Classmates has agreed to pay $11 million after 22 attorneys general alleged that the Seattle-based company engaged in deceptive billing and marketing practices. The company was being investigated for its partnerships with third-party groups, which automatically charged consumers for services such as discount buying clubs and travel rewards programs. The attorneys general claimed that users of Classmates and FTD.com — the floral delivery service once owned by Classmates.com parent company United Online — were automatically enrolled in the third-party programs during the sign-up process. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, along with 21 other attorneys general, reported the payout for users of Classmates and FTD.com."
Classmates is nothing but a scam. When I emailed and told them I didn't want the paid membership they said they would cancel it just as soon as my current paid membership ran out. Huh??? You can check out members complaints here: https://classmates.pissedconsumer.com/
