Complaint / review text:
This company requires a credit card on file, even for free service, for one reason, they will eventually take your money, even if the service is free, either through their own bogus charges or what happened to me as follows.
Due to several problems I had with this company, I downgraded to the free service and suddenly my bank notifies me of around $200 worth of bogus charges on my card. I strongly feel the charges were made by Freedompop.
Doing this to me benefits them in at least two ways.
One, obviously, they get free money and a pretty good chunk of it.
Two, I had to cancel my card and they know darn well I won't be giving them my new card number, hence they will close my free account since I have no card on file with them and get out of the bargain we struck.
For this, and as I said, several other reasons I'll mention on other sites, stay away from these people. They are lying scam artists.
