Google Ripped Me Off

A few months ago, I received a flyer in the mail. It was a special offer, $50 to advertise with Google.

I checked my Visa statement yesterday. A $200 charge from Google!

I called Google and asked what it was about. They said it was for advertising with them. I said I never wanted to advertise with them beyond their $50 offer. They said they make it clear when I sign up that there will be additional charges that will be debtited from my Visa automaticly every month.

So not only do I not get a refund from Google, they are charging a $113 to close the account. Classy Google.

What I've now learned with Google if they offer anything where they want my Visa card number, stay away. Google's offered a lot of free stuff that I use daily, but now I hate Google.

PS. If you're wondering if the advertising did any good, the answer is no. I do appliance repair and I did not get one lead from Google.
