      AOL is truly evil, and I'll tell you why.

      Ok. Here is the story:

      I checked my checking account last Friday to see which transactions had posted. I perused through them when I found a transaction that was foreign to me: an InStyle magazine subscription.

      Puzzled, I asked my mom if she knew anything about it. She said that she had only signed up for the trial subscription, but had not put any sort of billing information on the subscription.

      Since I'm not into fashion, I knew that I had not ordered the subscription (the ONLY subscription that I had ordered was Scratch Magazine.

      I thought that maybe someone had gotten a hold of my checking card number (it has happened before). This morning, I called the bank, and I went through various options until I got to the fraud specialist. I waited for a good 5 minutes until...

      They hung up.

      At that instant, my mom told me to called the InStyle magazine customer service number to cancel the subscription and to see who charged my account.

      I called and they told me: "AOL signed you up for the subscription."

      My mother and I were both pissed. After I cancelled the subscription, we figured out how AOL did this:

      A few times in the past, my mom would use my checking card to pay for the monthly bill to AOL. Eventually, my mom wanted them to take the money out of her account instead (they didn't stop until March). Seeing as how AOL still had my checking card number, they decided to sign my mom up (UNAUTHORIZED) for the InStyle magazine subscription.

      I then figured that they must get a certain percentage for each person that signs up for the subscription (knowningly or unknowningly). Regardless, they fucked up one of their loyal customers. My mom had been thinking about leaving AOL for a while, but this was the LAST straw.

      I am telling every AOL user out there...WATCH OUT!

      These fuckers are out for your money.

      Some people take themselves WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, when in actuality, no one else is really taking them as seriously as they think.
