Notify Your Credit Card Company About Netflix Membership Cancellation

Even if you take great care to properly close your Netflix account, it is possible that Netflix may still try to hit you with additional charges after your subscription has ended. Netflix could make claims of an improperly closed account, missing DVDs, missed deadlines, etc. If this happens, you have the right to dispute the bogus charges with your credit card company, and, if you are a customer in good standing, there is a decent chance your credit card company could side with you.

You do not have to wait for a problem to occur to take action, however. If you are concerned that Netflix could hit you with bogus credit card charges after you close your Netflix account, you might consider being proactive and contacting your credit card company before you close your Netflix account. You can notify your credit card company of the date you plan to close your Netflix account and the date after which Netflix should not be billing your card. You could still get hit with additional charges, but you may then have a stronger case if you need to dispute any suspicious charges from Netflix.

Dear Anonymous Computer Genius from 8/17/11,

Welcome to the Internet! Hope you had a wonderful time on your first ride down the information superhighway.

Now that you have logged onto the Internets/Interwebs for a second visit, please direct your good eye to the URL at the top of your browser. (The browser is the screen that shows you all of the pretty pictures and big confusing words.) You will see Netflix Underground has a blogspot.com domain. It is sad to see your conspiracy theory die out so quickly, but you should be aware Google owns all blogspot.com domains and gives them out for free to anyone who wants one. This has been common knowledge to virtually every experienced Internet user in the world for several years now.

Welcome to the party, and have a nice day. It is so good to know AOL is still signing up new subscribers.
