How do I get myself removed?! I joined and unfortunately realised immediately what a flipping scam it was. After not finding any way to remove my account I contacted them via email and asked to have my account deleted and to be removed from their database.
Yesterday I received an email back saying that they had done this, yet this morning I could still log onto my account and I had five more emails from them! they have been sent straight to spam but I really regret signing up now!
I emailed back saying that I'd been told the problem had been fixed and hadn't and they then got back to me again explaining that it takes a day or so to remove you from the database I haven't received anything since receiving the 2nd email and seem to be off of the system now.
I hate companies like this, you have to root around trying to find some way of contacting them to delete your account, why not just have a button in the account settings that says "delete account" like every decent company does?
It's not so much a scam, wrong word usage there, just very bloody spammy and stupid. I couldn't sign up to anything without bugging my friends to join, they spam you constantly, none of their deals are actually any good and getting out of it is not made easy, I'm betting that those who aren't overly familiar with computers would just give up trying to get out of it because they don't tell you how to get off of their database to would continue to get spammed.
ihatethecold: I did say that I'd used the wrong word. The concept is great, but I'd rather go for a company who didn't constantly spam me tbh.
amicissima: Blocking them solves the problem of spam, but doesn't solve the fact that they still have your information on file. Which they may do even after you leave but I feel better having asked them to remove that information iyswim?
