Why are you complaining? Your "contributions" are going to good causes, are they not? They are, apparently determining your "fair share."

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

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.

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.

Actblue - Did Not Authorize Donation.

1.0
Details
On July 18 I made a $19 donation to Actblue. Almost two weeks later I received an email thanking me for a $25 dollar donation I never authorized. I've tried calling, no one answers. I leave messages, no one gets back to me. I went to their site and was told the donation was cancelled. But according to my credit card statement that's not true. I will never donate to Actblue again. And one way or another I'm getting my money back. They are not getting away with this.

I got my money back!

Original review posted by user Aug 19

Once I contributed $25 to a political cause. I was careful to make sure that this was a one-time contribution. About 2 weeks later I noticed they withdrew over$200 from my account! AND the check box of a monthly "contribution" was selected - I KNOW...

ActBlue made an unauthorized charge of $2800 to credit card

1.0
Details
Incredibly unprofessional, unethical and poorly built site! I have never experienced anything this before! My son made a $10 donation using ActBlue, they stored the credit card number on his account. Two weeks later a new charge of $2800 pops up on the credit card and we get an email thanking my son for his donation. I discovered the credit card stored on their site an deleted it, but am doubtful after reading others stories, this will be effective. I have asked them to reverse the charge, if that does not happen I will dispute it with the card company.
