Good Day,

I have two separate subscriptions with adobe. One subscription is "Creative Cloud Photography Plan" and the "Creative Cloud Single-App membership for Adobe premiere Pro".

I signed up for adobe premiere in 2015 through my paypal account while it appears the creative cloud photography plan was signed up for in 2016 ( I did not sign up for this plan to begin with ).

Initially I thought the amount that was being withdrawn from my account every month was for the adobe premiere pro service, so I went in to cancel my account and found that in order to cancel the account I would have to pay an ADDITIONAL amount. After further investigation, I realized that not only have I been double charged for the creative cloud services for the past few months, I had been double charged SINCE 2016. I could not believe it. I rushed into my paypal account to discover that DOUBLE CHARGES HAVE BEEN GOING ON SINCE 2015!

I have tried pulling up a chat window on their website but, it seems like a maze in fact once I finally got into the chat window, my browser crashed. I have no idea what is really going on here but, I would like a complete refund on every single double charged I have received since 2015/2016 on both accounts. And I would like to cancel my creative cloud photography plan!. I don't even have all those apps installed on my computer except for photoshop.

Is there a customer support team that actively monitor's billing??? What is going on here???

Thank you for contacting Adobe membership services. You will be attended to shortly.

You are now chatting with 'Debasis'

Thank you for contacting Adobe Membership Services Stella. I’ll look into your account right away to view exclusive offers for your membership.

Hi Stella, How are you doing today?

Meanwhile, may I have your phone number to update your profile?

I have been double billed on both of my adobe subscriptions!!!!!! ONE SINCE 2015 AND ANOTHER SINCE 2016

I NEED A REFUND

CAN YOU PLEASE LOOK INTO WHY I HAVE BEEN CHARGED TWICE FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS???

I can understand your concern but please allow me 1-2 minutes so that I can look into the details for you and provide you with the best resolution.

You mean to tell me your billing advisors and accounts receivable clerks have been receiving double payments ON BOTH ACCOUNTS FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS AND THOUGHT IT WAS A NORMAL REOCCURANCE?

We appreciate your patience and apologize for the wait.

Thank you for confirming your contact details & appreciate your patience. As I can see that you have Creative Cloud Photography plan (one-year) ‎& Creative Cloud single-app membership for Adobe Premiere Pro (one-year) .

My god, and then on top of that, I have tried cancelling my account on several occasions I have being forced to PAY AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT.

My paypal account and bank account clearly state that I have been double billed

even the invoices shown on both of these apps don't reflect the right thing

I can see that you have 2 subscription that is why you are being double charged every month .

No!

I am being double billed on BOTH subscriptions

BOTH SUBSCRIPTIONS COST DIFFERENT AMOUNTS

and I am being bill TWICE

for each amount

Please allow me 1-2 minutes to review your account details.

Since 2016

and 2015

I had to go into my statements, further back to discover that this has been going on for longer than I thought

We appreciate your patience and apologize for the wait.

Just last month alone. I was charged 21.76 on January 12 and Jauary 06

I can see that you are being charged 10.88 usd / month for photography plan on paypal on 17 of every month.

Same with every other month since 2016

I am being charged 21.76

You are also getting charged 21.76 usd for Adobe Premiere Pro CC on your card on 6th every month .

The single app is 10.88

and I have been double charged on that too

Well either way

I have been double charged

on both

Can you see about getting me a refund?

Please allow me 1-2 minutes to review your account details.

I have been double charged on adobe preimiere since 2015

premiere

What your invoice shows does not reflect what is actually going on

I can see that you also have a subscription on different email adsress .

That is why you are being charged double every month .

Just a moment, I will take screenshots and put it on the forums instead, since I am not getting any type of assistance on this

I am being double charged on the visa card ending in 3140

and my paypal account

but no worries. I will take screenshots, I share instead, since you can't seem to want to help me

Since 2016 I was charged twice

21.76

I am trying to help yuo that is I made you aware of the double charge.

then with the other amount 10

I was charged twice

the double charges are of the same amount

that is FOUR TIMES

21.76 + 21.76

I can see that because you have a subscription under different email adress & there is typo mistake that is why you are being double charged every month for 21.76 .

and 10.88 + 10.88

what about the 10.88?

What kind of type of that?????

Stella, my apologies, I can see that you have been single charged 10.88 every month on paypal .

I need a refund or we can create a class action law suit and involve the better business bureau

My paypal account shows that I have been double charged on that too

Dou you remember any email address where signup for a subscription ?

the one I have using which is skyss112@yahoo.com

Okay.

I can see that you have been double charged for 21.76 every month .

But I can see that you have being single charged for 10.88 every month .

I am looking on my paypal and I see a double charge

on 10.88

No problem, I am writing to the better business bureau in just a moment with these screenshots since I cannot get any assistance via chat

I can understand that .

In that case I will simply transfer the chat to billing so that they can find the charge for 10.88 on paypal .

What about my refunds on the 21.76

May I go ahead & transfer the chat ?

No, I would like my refund processed

For the past 3 years I have been double billed

and noone ever thought for one second that a customer sending money in twice a month every two weeks was odd?

I have to get into my statements and look further back to see that this was going on longer

Stella, I can understand that but you have a subscription under different email address that is why you were double charged .

This is the only email that I have ever used with ADOBE

Stella, I can understand that but without verifying we cannot process the refund .

( removed because it contains sensitive information )

That's just a preview

In order to find the charges on paypal I need to escalate this case to the concerned department .

May I go ahead & transfer the chat ?

What about the charges coming from my personal account also?

I will transfer the chat & they will help you .

May I go ahead & transfer the chat ?

Sure

The representative I spoke to via chat tried to claim that i am being billed twice because I have two different subscriptions, then later on he says its because of a mistake and I have probably signed up on two different emails ( complete bull because I only use one email ).

I just now went through the same thing. Said I signed up on 2 accounts when I only made one. It's like they made a second account and charged me for it as well. Wtf. I'm contacting my bank in the morning and getting a refund.

To clarify, this is what happened. I noticed I was being double charged each month for the 3 months I've been signed up with adobe. The support rep found out there was a second acount under my secondary email. Now I know I didn't sign up for anything under Adobe for that secondary email, as it is used for videogame accounts only. That second account was apparently signed up via Google, which means instant sign up. The only possible way this account could exist is if I signed in via Google and accidentally clicked the wrong email. As per common sense, I'd try and use photoshop and see I don't have a subscription, which would tell me that's the wrong account. Afterwards, adobe would have decided to sign me up for a subscription plan against my will, which they have done to others in the past.

However, when I was talking to the support rep, they had me send an email containing my bank statements as proof of the double charge. I don't check my statements regularly, and when I was reading over them in full after sending them, I found a charge from Hong Kong, and from a restaurant with an international fee, which means that purchase was made within the city of Hong Kong, and I've never been outside the US in my life. So my other, and more realistic guess is someone in Hong Kong who has access to my debit card/bank info also has access to my identity, and used my secondary email to sign up for an adobe account for who knows. If this is the case, I apologise to the rep for being so harsh and threatening a block payment order from my bank. I know every single purchase I make because I have to since I only make 19k a year and budgeting is the only way I can afford anything nice for myself, and I know for a fact I didn't by two adobe subcriptions, even by accident. Either way, my bank is pretty good with spotting fraud and refunding. Unfortunately for them, my info has likely been out on the internet for a long time, since I've had over 2 dozen fraud incidents in the 5 years I've been with my bank.

Ugh, that was the account that was charged against my volition. I thought I had that account deleted. I'll see if I can delete it myself then. Tomorrow morning I'm going to call my bank and find out how I can secure my identity. I've had multiple charges and login attempts in multiple accounts for multiple websites/apps/services from Hong Kong, Miami, and a few other places I don't remember. This is extremely frustrating to deal with at my age. At this point, I'm just venting.

Upon further investigation, I noticed 2 things: 1: the account was first signed in by an unknown device. And 2: the account was not linked to my email until June 24th. I'm going to have to look into this a lot more. Probably with Adobe again, but definitely with my bank.

I took screenshots to show the double charges since I have to sit in the charge and basically argue with the representative about this and now they are telling me that I inserted the wrong email address that's why I was being billed twice and I need to report that these were fraudulent charges to my bank in order to get a refund.

For the past year

The ones from 2015 are on my statements.

I can only see the charge of 6 months on your card with my resources so it will be really helpful if you will please help me with the most recent charge.

But I can pull those too, print them out and start going through them

There are two charges

You don't see that?

Double charges

Jan 12, 2018 ADOBE SYSTEMS, INC. 800-833-6687 CA 01/12 Debit card transaction −$21.76 Jan 8, 2018 ADOBE *PR CREATIVE CL 800-833-6687 CA 01/06 Debit card transaction

This was just last month.

I am only able to pull up your date from Aug 17 2017.

I have been double charges since 2015.

Please help me with the last 4 digit of card, name on card.

......

It's even on my account

Please provide first and last name on card too.

Stella Moore

It's on my account too.

Thank you.

Sure.

Please allow me 2-3 minutes to find your second charge on card.

k.

We appreciate your patience and apologize for the wait.

I found your second charge of 21.76, you have done a typo error when purchasing subscription that is why the subscription is placed in wrong email address.

Oh really? Since 2015?

Yes, you are right.

Interesting.

Now the best resolution is to cancel your plan from incorrect email address without cancelation fee and then you can ask charge back from your bank as fraudulent charge.

No, the best thing is that I get a refund on the double charges I have received and then cancel my account without a fee attached to it. I did not insert a "wrong email" address. That is on your end, this billing issue was coming from your end.

What is the "mistaken" email address?

I apologize I am not authorized to provide you incorrect email address as you did not verified it due to data protection policy.

Because it does not exist and you are blatantly lying instead of issuing a refund to my card.

I need my refund issued.

Stella, I am just trying to help you I am bound with the policies I can not provide you information of account which you do not verify

That's fine but, you can charge my account fraudulently?

I need my refund issued.

I am basically being denied a refund after you have been cheating me for years

Let me check what I can do best for you.

Please allow me 2 minutes.

Stella, I am going to escalate your case for full refund of 2 years from your incorrect email address.

I was charged since 2015.

When can I expect this so called "refund".

You will get refund in your account within 5-7 working days.

From 2015?

as well?

Yes, you are right.

I need proof and confirmation of this.

I would also like both subscriptions ( except adobe premiere ) cancelled without a fee.

Hello?

Same has happened to me and I see it is happening to many people.  This is fraud.  They said I made a typo on my email.  How is it possible to make an account with an email account that does not exist?

Could it be that you did not read previous post?

OP had a Photography plan and a Premiere Pro plan (that he said he took). He said that he did not take the Photography plan, but that he had Photoshop installed on his system.

OP is contradicting himself as a Premiere Pro CC plan does not come with Photoshop, but the Photography plan comes with Photoshop. So the impression is clearly given that OP took 2 plans.

This also is a logical deduction as it makes sense to take those 2 plans when you need Photoshop and Premiere.

So you are saying that your situation is the same?
