Re: Ancestry Faces $250 Million Class Action Lawsuit Over Auto-Renewals

People should use common sense.  I had the same thing when I looked once at Ancestry and was proposed a 14 day free trial.  I accepted it and was straight away directed to a page asking me my credit card information.  I said to myself : why Ancestry needs already my credit card information during a free trial.  It should be normal been asked after the finishing of the free trial and it is me to accept their proposal or to refuse it.  Result would have been,  that I would have got a free trial for 14 days and then have to pay, because they have already my credit card information.  My common sense said – no thank you – and I skipped the free trial.  And if you think free ‘cheating’ trials are only with Ancestry, you make a big mistake.  I happens with a lot of other websites.

The same with the cookies: if you don’t accept them you cannot get on some websites.  So people, use your common sense, so as, I hope at least, you do the same when getting phishing mails.
