Actblue - They Take Recurring Payments Without Your Consent
Actblue - They Take Recurring Payments Without Your Consent
Update by user Feb 17, 2020

I just received a PayPal refund while I was filling out the "PissedConsumer" information forms. The refund was for both (2) of the ActBlue Single Payment donations that unbeknownst to me became Recurring donations.

It took multiple emails over 1.5 months. Too much...

Harassment

Your whole deal is to receive donations. I get that. However, if I make a donation then, I get sent to a survey about my experience. At which point, I AM ASKED TO GIVE MORE MONEY! How much is enough? Everything? This is what turns Americans into Republicans because that is EXACTLY what Republicans do! Knock it off you snakes!

User's recommendation: Don't Bother! Typical politics. Vote either way, they all suck!

Continued requests for donations

I have been giving on a monthly basis for years to this outfit and they keep asking for me to sign up and give. Do they not know who is giving and who is not? If this keeps up I will withdraw what I already have put on my credit card every month.

Nothing more in the way of requests for money. I live on SS, am 86 years old and not financially able to give any more than I already do.

Act Blue is impossible!!

Update by user Sep 06, 2021

I see no way to add a photo to get a Verified Buyer Badge! It appears that this is a way for my concerns to be ignored.

Original review posted by user Sep 06, 2021
It is nearly impossible to cancel the recurring payment(s). In attempting, there are endless delays and pitfalls.

User's recommendation: Beware authorizing recurring payments and contributions via Act Blue.

Cancelation of donation pressed in error

There isn't any way to cancel a donation that was, pressed in error, which is not fair to the donor. I will never donate again to ActBlue.

User's recommendation: Please be careful when you donate because it you make a mistake their site does not allow you to correct the mistake or cancel the donation they will take your money anyway. I made a mistake and pressed the wrong donation amount then I could not cancel the donation so you have no way of stopping the error from going through they will just take your money.

There was no resolution, really. I reached out to Deming's campaign and there was zero response.

ActBlue basically brushed me off, leaving me with the distinct impression that they just don't care about small donors like me. There response was along the lines of it was...

STOP recurring billing.

Unauthorized recurring charges

A one time donation leads to recurring charges to what appears to be a scam. Tried to address this at PayPal's site, and they pushed me back to Act Blue. Do I have to sue them? How does one stop these criminals?

User's recommendation: Do not donate to Act Blue as there is no end to it.

No when you sign up you didn't know what the *** were doing and signed up for the monthly charge. Pay attention to what you're doing.

Recurring donations that are in error

There are 2 recurring donations on my account and I want them stopped! I thought I got them stopped last month but they appeared again on my cc statement and I am NOT GETTING email receipts!

User's recommendation: Do not contribute thru Act Blue.

Dealing with the same issue. I thought they'd gotten enough bad publicity that they would have changed their ways, but apparently not! Unfortunately, a lot of the candidates I want to donate to seem to process donations solely through Act Blue, so I have to decide whether to withhold support or keep fighting this same fraudulent behavior
