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

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 - 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 in Oak Creek, Wisconsin - Double Biller

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

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.

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 - 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.
