Actblue - They change your one time contribution to monthly and give you no time to correct

1.0
Details
I have seen the change happening as it blows away. In the past you could go in and change or cancel the entire contribution but not now. I don't really know where the money goes but I don't trust them and will be closing my account.

Actblue in Daly City, California - Unauthorized charges

1.0
Details
ActBlue made unauthorized charges to my Amex and I didn't give them my Amex. They keep making recurring charges that I marked as "one time". The Website for customer service is extremly stressful because you can never get to the page to delete the credit card info , and you have to email them for assistance. They've made $250.00 in authorized charges.

Details
3 separate times in a year I have made one time donation to a particular campaign. The Second and Third time I was very very careful , I refused to "Tip" Act Blue and they double charges my debt card. On the Third time I caught it already charging and closed my browser(Foxfire), But 5 mins later I received a emailed receipt. I imeadly emailed ActBlue back complaining, and they imeadly issued a answer saying I will be returned in 2 to 3 days, which has happen 2 times in the past. Next time I send a check. What was even stranger was my 1st donation to a different campaign had no problems

  • Actblue Rip-Off

Actblue in Carmel, New York - Ripped off for $4500

1.0
Details
In 2018 I made two donations of $500 each for close Senate and gubnatorial races. Only when doing taxes, I saw that they were dinging me $500 a WEEK for one candidate, totally $3000! I had caught--or thought I did--their cheating me in the name of the second candidate, called and left a message saying I'd never pressed monthly and this was fraud. I thought I nipped this in the bud but saw later they charged me three times anyway, a total of $1500. I am furious and will never ever give through them again. How can I get this money back? It's a bald scam.

Actblue - Unauthorized monthly charges, disputed and/or fraudulent

1.0
Details
I gave a ONE TIME ONLY donation for a specific need, well more than a year ago. Then they kept charging my cr card a monthly fee of $25+5 for the next 16 months. (While living and working abroad, my credit card charges were handled by a bookkeeper who never noticed, assumed it was normal and authorized). I contacted them, left 4 messages, went onto their website, followed procedures. NEVER ONE RESPONSE. I submitted it as a disputed, even fraudulent charge. Still waiting for some response. This behavior is unethical, illegitimate, and totally irresponsible. Advise giving nothing to this highly questionable political operation.

I tend not to believe 90% of what any Democrat says. Not every Democrat is a thief, but every thief I've ever met was a Democrat.

I disbelieve only 75% of what Republicans say. Democrats steal your income, Republicans steal your savings.

Actblue - Frustrated

You have several times charged my account monthly with a reoccurring charge. I contributed only one time charges. This has happened before. So I would like to cancel any further debit of contribution and I will no longer support actblue. Please do this as I don't feel that I want to go through the website and the hassle of eliminating this myself when you can do it. Angry

Details
After doing a one time donation, they continued to use my credit card. But always different amounts and different dates. There was no rime or reason, just theft. They would not refund me the $1000+ they stole and AG's office has been useless.
