I agreed to a minimal charge to start my 1 month Spokeo membership after which I would be charged if I didn't cancel. The charge was .95 cents to start which was obn 11/5/16.
If I didn't cancel within 30 days I would be charged again - $9.85. I didn't cancel and ended up paying the additional monthly fee. However, when I was reviewing my statement for November for another reason, I saw a charge from Spokeo on 11/13 for $19.95! This additional charge happened less than 10 days after my initial charge.
I noticed it several months later because I rarely use that credit card and I just didn't think Spokeo would go back and add a charge. However, my credit card company was able to resolve this over the phone after I told the representative the history. I was told I would receive a refund immediately for $19.95.
It would seem that the Spokeo problem is known to my credit card company and that the additional charge is a scam. I would also like to add that the reason why I used Spokeo is because I was receiving suspicious phone calls and wanted to back trace the phone numbers but that was unproductive.
