Actblue review: 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 review in Stockton, California: Did Not Like Being Charge For An Unauthorized Donation

2.0
Details
I made an donation to Actblue which was authorized. But I discovered that a second donation which I didn't authorize was charge to my credit card. I had a difficult time getting a response from Actblue. But after about a week, I received a letter concerning the voicemail I left them. I was informed in the letter that the donation had been cancelled and I would be receiving a refund. Which I did. Happy

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 review: 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

Actblue review: Unauthorized withdrawals from bank account

1.0
Details
Act Blue has taken almost 3000 dollars out of my bank account. I never authorized these withdrawals. Politicians apparently are aware of this but don't do anything about it because they want the money. I am 70 and on Social Security. I have no money to live on because of these unauthorized withdrawals. I have filed complaints and am waiting to see if I ever get my money back.

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.

Every time I try to contribute to a candidate through the ActBlue site, it won’t take my donation because I only have a mailing address with a letter, I.e. “ P. O. Box Z”.

You got lucky. Who knows where any money you fork over to this group would eventually wind up.

Never a good idea to give money to an umbrella organization like this because you really have no idea to whom they give the money to, or what their "take" is, etc. Similar to someone giving money to The Red Cross because you see victims of a disaster on the telly and, for some reason want to "help" them.

Makes you feel good, but again, follow where the money goes. You will learn this in life eventually.

Actblue review: Unarthorized payments taken out of my account

I auhorized a ONE TIME payment of $35.00 to be taken out of my account a few months ago for what I thought was the Democratic Party. I did not mean to donate to Bernie. The House Dems was a misleading heading. Please STOP taking my hard earned money out of my account. I have notified my bank. Thank you in advance. I did not see where my donation was to be monthly. ONE TIME ONLY, $35:00 is all I authorized.for the Democratic Party not, Bernie. Thank you. 9/3/19.
