    I used to pay monthly access to a website that I no longer wished to be a part of and I requested I be removed from their site.

    I received an email back from them saying they removed me from the billing and my access to the site would end on the date at the end of the billing month.

    That was back in early November. I was sitting around bored today and just had a look at their site and my login details still work for the site.

    Is there a way I can still access their site for information and they would not know I am logging in? Is this just a mistake from their end and not removing my details from their system?

    Did you check to see if they were still billing you?

    This has happened to me a LOT in the last 12 months; you cancel an account, get a confirmation...and then they keep billing you.

    Sometimes the site would get nuked but the billing kept going, other times the site and the billing both kept chugging along.

    Then you get to spend 1/2 a day on hold waiting for someone to come online to tell you they need you to fax a copy of your passport to them so they can verify that it's you.

    Of course, you don't have to send them a copy of your passport to OPEN AN ACCOUNT. :rolleyes:

    They haven't billed me since October. I will ring up the bank and get them to remove the authority they have on my card just to confirm it.

    Then I can always say it wasn't me logging in after if they catch on.
