I tried to cancel my free trial, adobe didn't let me, now I'm being billed $280+?
This is daylight robbery, I downloaded adobe lightroom to edit a few photos for a one off 7 day trial. I tried this out for 1 hour and have never used it again and dont plan on ever using it as I do not need the software. I cancelled this manually immediately after trying it out and I do not recall being told about any cancellation fee. I was then getting charged each month for adobe stock which I thought was cancelled? This is such a scam for someone who cannot afford any of these charges, being a student. I am appalled and want a refund immediately.

It looks like you did cancel your Lightroom plan, but you did not cancel your separate stock plan, that you booked with your Lightroom plan. The early cancellation fee is in the terms and conditions that you confirmed to have read, when you took your plans. They are also repeated in the confirmation mail that you got when you accepted your plans. Whenever you conclude a contract, be sure to have read what you agreed upon. And the only person, you can be angry at is you.
