Beware - Rip-Off Practices, No Responses

I would have expected more professional treatment from such a long-standing site, but you never know. I joined in October when they had a 2-month for $25 deal, which I thought made the site worth checking out. With DRM on their vids and crappy navigation on their pics, I had no interest in sticking around longer than that and cancelled using their site. The site confirmed my cancellation, though I did not receive an e-mail confirmation, which is pretty common - not getting an e-mail confirmation, that is. I was sure I was all set until I received my credit card statement this past weekend and saw that they had charged me an additional $30.54 US. I filled out the "Contact us" form on the site - no response. I sent an e-mail to an e-mail address that I had when a C/S person had responded promptly to an issue during my membership - no response.

Apparently, they're OK with you giving them money and resolving password issues while you're OK with giving them money, but they don't mind ripping people off and they don't respond to people that they have ripped off. I'm fucking pissed about it.

jd1961 (95) Thanks.

Private has the potential to be an awesome site, but they only seem to be interested in taking people's $$$ and advertising their overpriced DVD's (have I said this before?).

Drooler (220) The DRM was enough to keep me away, but this seals it. Thanks for the warning.

Denner (235) Thanks for that Warning!!!
Thought about joining often, but the DRM kept me away.
Far out that a site like this treats it's costumers that way.
Private HAS some fine stuff - SO take a look at Video Box where there now are several Private-produced videos
