Adobe stock trial added without user wanting to add

i Adobe,

 
My case number is ADB-26565421-J3R5.
Kindly check the history.
 
I sincerely only signed up for the Photography trail and I am not sure why the Adobe stock was included back then when I signed up for photography.
This is not the correct way to promote Adobe products I must say.
Since I only signed up for the photography trial and I was charged 14.29 for it, I set myself a reminder to cancel the photography trial before it expires.
I got the refund for 14.29 and I thought I had done my job correctly.
But it seems there was another stock component added to my original trial and the way this product works and got added to my subscription is not by user(my) choice and hence I was not aware I need to cancel this separately. 
I only specifically wanted photoshop so i cancelled photoshop so i was under the impression everything is cancelled.
 
This is not really something I use and the reminder email shared below is not in my inbox for whatever reason.
Does Adobe really think I should hold on to this for 10 months and hold the grudge I have been deceived? 
I only signed up for a few days to use only photoshop and i am a beginner in photoshop let alone have any knowledge of the various products you have.
 
I thank you for the immediate remedy to freeze my billing for 3 months but I really dont use this service, i didn't explicitly sign up for this service and i wish it can be cancelled without any charges.
 
I have searched for hours to locate an email to write to you but seems like many have already complained there is no direct contact details located at Adobe.
 
Only automated reponse i got after the call was - 

Your case is now closed. Your closed case details are as follows:

  • Case Number: ADB-26565421-J3R5. 
  • Issue: Subscription Inquiry
 
which is contradicting to what the person on the phone call said.
 
Thanks,
Lalith.

p.p.p.s. if you're contacted by anyone (via email or private message), it's much more likely to be a scammer than an adobe representative. ie, double check for an employee badge if contacted in the forums and look for an adobe.com domain in the email address if you click reply to an email. then check again and be very suspicious. any other method of contacting (or offering to contact you) is almost certainly a scam, https://community.adobe.com/t5/using-the-community-discussions/staying-safe-in-the-adobe-support-com...

By @samlk001

You did tick the "Add Adobe stock" button when signing up. It's small, it's easy, and it's tempting. You got, however, an e-mail with all items that you signed up for, the cost and what to do to avoid being charged.

 

If you go to https://account.adobe.com/plans you will see that you still have that stock plan. You should have seen it, when you cancelled your Photoshop plan.

 

As for the rest, do as @kglad said.
