Actblue review in Somerville, Massachusetts: Sneaky practices

Like many others they converted a onetime donation to a monthly contribution. It's not the money so much as the sheer gall. And they deliberately make hard to opt out. Really irritating. It's what's wrong with a certain tendancy of the Left: they assume too much. And they won't even publish this already overlong complaint unless I write a hundred words. How many words are really necessary to say "You cheated. Stop it!" It appears I'm still shy of a hundred words so I guess I'll take this time give a shout out to any Veterans out there who are not likely to be reading this babble. (101st Airborne, Phu Bai, '67-'68) I think it's odd that this organisation is as inflexible as Army when it comes to making a complaint. Go far enough Left or far enough Right and you end up in pretty the same place.

Actblue review: Act 2 is horrible !

I have donated before and today and I always am misled about the amount I donate . It's always more than I choose ! I am sick of having to try straightening things because of being over charged or being misled!

Actblue review: Ripped Off!

1.0
Details
After the first time I donated to a Democratic candidate and tipped Act blue, they began to charge my PayPal account every day or so. I attempted to rectify this indiscretion through contacting Act Blue, but my understanding was that I had to wait until a statement was delivered to me at the end of the month. Then I went to PayPal and attempted to stop reoccurring payments, but was billed by Act Blue for a tip again last night. This may all have been called on by my not originally paying close enough attention to details, but on the other hand, I still think that I have been taken advantage of by a user unfriendly if not unethical web site.

Actblue review: I do not want recurring donations taken from my credit card

I donated money three times. I do not wish money taken from my credit card on a routine basis. DO NOT TAKE ANY MORE MONEY FROM MY CREDIT CARD. I called Bank Americard and they referred me to your phone number. The last four digits of my card are 8631. I called and they said I had to write to you. MONEY WAS TAKEN ON 4/24 without my permission and I want a credit back to my charge card instead of direct debit. I donated on 3/01 and 3/30 and 4/0l. Please call or write to me to acknowledge this information: Claire Levitan 718-631-3886. clairebras@aol.com If you would like to keep me as a future donator , please call or write asap.

I made a donation and they continued to use my credit card until I cancelled it. Act Blue stole nearly $500 over a six month period. They are thieves. Trying to resolve the issue is impossible. I became very frustrated trying to connect with a responsible person in...

During the presidential campaign I signed a pledge of support to Hillary and Bernie and others, but I never authorized any monthly deduction from my bank account. I may have contributed $5.00 once (because they have my bank card number). But now I realize that they...

Actblue review: Recurring charges and no email to reset password

Just to let you know ActBlue.com put me through a lot with my credit cards. I did not sign up for reoccurring charges and it charged me over and over again. Not to mention I could not send an email because I forgot my password and asked for a reset link and they did not send it no matter how many times I requested it. I hate using this website. I feel like pulling away from the Democrats. It is really frustrating. I don't think that the candidates that use this website are getting sponsored or donations as much after what happens to their followers. I cannot even trust the campaign manager who I complained to when Hillary was running to take care of this issue so they won't lose pull.

Act Blue Review

The ugly sound of the word obfuscating is, along with the other words such as deceptive miss leading even Fraudulent,to describe the fundraising methods of Act Blue from my experience. Is it not surprising that older people and women are the highest source of those using this? I continue to be ashamed for the Democrats especially those who know how this practice works. Dr. E K, MD

Actblue review: Double Charged, charged monthly when never chose monthly

1.5
Details
Hello. I had a problem with ActBlue Probably in October of 2016. They double-charged my donation, and they added 10% as a tip. My bank reverse it right away, but still. And a Friend gave a certain amount, had made sure she didn't check monthly, and my friend discovered the amt. was being charged monthly. She said she is Never Using ActBlue again, because she has had this overcharge experience a few times now. So I do not want to donate to a group I like, because I don't want to have to go thru ActBlue. They really need to get their act together. The Democrats need to get on this, and stop this from happening to donors! The gives them a bad name. Thank you.
