Swindling alert

When trying to subscribe to Blacks On Blondes, I've got a form with name, card number and expiration date (as usual), which also had 2 checkboxes pre-checked (!) - each one for 1-day trial auto-renewable at $20-something each. If this is not an attempt to swindle, what is?

Not sure whether it was done by site itself or Epoch (it was on Epoch page), or both; still - BEWARE and read carefully the whole form before submitting, or you can end up paying $50/month more than expected.

Do you mean that you did run into such 'free-trial-renewed-at-price' pre-checked boxes when subscribing before? Are they common now? (this was my first time running into such thing, so I was really upset with it).

Yes, from time to time. I always double check the sign in page before I make the final click!

I see, thanks.

By any chance, do you have some observations where it happens more often (for example, it might be a 'feature' of some processors like Epoch)? If we would know where to look for it, it would be easier to avoid.

No, it can happen anywhere. Pay close attention, especially to trial offers. I just carefully check all my information before I make the final click! You are not obligated until the final click, so you can check any site out.

Thanks. Sure, it's always a good idea to check everything before final click, but it's sooooo boring. Unfortunately, it seems that there is no way around :-(.

It is boring, but I check it with a fine tooth comb because some of the people that run these sites are charlatans. Watch your back !!

I think 'swindlers' is a more precise word :-).
