One day trial scam

This site offers a one day trial for $0.95 which is supposed to upgrade automatically to a monthly membership at $41.88 per month if you don't cancel the one day trial. It tells you that all memberships have unlimited downloads. However, they immediately charge you not only the $0.95, but also the $41.88 if you download any files. There is no warning that you are being upgraded and you are charged even if you cancel the one day membership only after a few hours. Nowhere does the site tell you that downloading results in an immediate upgrade.

If you call the online vendor, Vendo, they will give you a refund but it takes 5 days. Vendo tries to defend the site by saying that the trial does not include downloads but if you stick to your guns, they give the refund.

This is a scam site. Stay away!!!!

By the way... if Vendo, or whoever it is that processes your billing refuses you a refund, call your credit card company. Be upfront about what happened. It's no secret that lots of people use porn sites. Why do you think so many are in the business? If a major credit card company like Visa or Mastercard starts to get a lot of complaints about a particular e-commerce provider, and especially one in the adult entertainment business, they will be cut off and that is something that none of them can live with.

As a final comment, these sorts of tactics may signal a shake-out in the online porn business. Passion-HD followed a business model like Vivid - signing girls like Holly Michaels to exclusive contracts. This is a gamble and a bad one. Porn viewers do not want to see the same girls over and over. The Comments on P-HD bear that out. P-HD has to resort to these surreptitious upgrade tactics because it is struggling.

I would expect to see them selling their content to somebody else (content is King!) and I would expect to see them losing their best staff to other suppliers.

Just my two cents.

luv lickn clit (21) Thanks for the heads up RedRoger. I don't usually do short term trials, since lately more and more sites seem to be pulling crap like this. I hope this tactic backfires on them.

It will if e-commerce providers like Vendo keep getting complaints and have to keep giving refunds. Passion-HD will not be able to find a service provider and they'll be out of business. You can help by spreading the word.
