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

Actblue review: Avoid this PAC

1.0
Details
I made a campaign contribution and they charged my credit card $800 for an $8 contribution. I attempted to bring the extra charge to their attention via telephone and email. I never got a response from them. I called our bank to dispute the charge since ActBlue was ignoring my contact attempts, and to our surprise the bank knew who ActBlue was and told us what a problem it was for the bank. The bank warned us to watch our account because not only was ActBlue clearing amounts far greater than was intended they were also using the credit cards to make additional charges that benefited ActBlue. The supervisor mentioned this issue was a big problem for the bank. I guess our politicians use corrupt companies to line both of their pockets.

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

1.0
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 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.

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: 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.
