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.

Actblue review 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 review 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.

When I first signed up to contribute monthly to the E Warren Presidential campaign, I input a Credit Card. I soon followed that signup with contributions to other campaigns on a recurring basis. Then, several months ago, I decided to change the credit card I was using....

You do realize, don't you that no matter how much you send to those people, you are just throwing your money away? Remember the P.T. Barnum saying.......

Actblue review: Bogus charges, No response to emails

1.0
Details
Bogus charges: Recently I found three or four unauthorized charges on my credit card. American express solved this problem pronto. I have in the past donated quite a bit of money through this website. But no longer. I will instead send checks to the people that I want to support in the forthcoming elections. In addition, I have been trying for two years to reset my password to no avail. No one ever responds to any emails. If this is the best the Democrats can do maybe they don’t need to be elected.

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 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 spams your mailbox once they get your email

1.8

After donating to a candidate via actblue, I started getting many emails daily from other democratic candidates. It takes time to go through and "unsubscribe" to emails I never subscribed to. Only solution so far is to avoid donating to Democrats since they all use this spam machine to get my email. I wonder if that is the desired effect? To punish donators with spam so that they stop donating?
