I’m writing this to you now after having lost around $15 (Ten pounds and eleven pence to be exact) to IGN.
Did you sign up for IGNs coverage of EVO 2009 last year? Did you too wait around for ages for the videos to appear, then wait in vain for all the pools videos that they promised they’d bring?
Well get on your Paypal account immediately! Go to Profile, My Pre Approved Statements under Financial Information, and then click on IGN Entertainment and cancel that noise. While you’re at it log into your ign account and look for something that says “you have subscriptions” and cancel that too.
IGN are well aware of this situation, but they have everyones premium account set to auto renew. They’ve also written into their small print that all charges for subscriptions are non refundable. What a shower of slime artists.
I wouldn’t even mind if they’d taken a decent course of action, like sending everyone out an email a week before their subscription runs out, to remind them that they’re about to be charged. My problem is that they charged an old Paypal account, linked to an old bank account I never use. Now I have to go to the bank and put money into that account to cover their charge.
If I’ve managed to save anyone from this scam I’ll be delighted, please let me know if this has helped you out.
