I signed up for Creative Cloud in July, I only wanted to use Photoshop and AI but it was cheaper to get the bundle than pay for those separately. Somehow during the sign up process Adobe Stock was added to my subscription.
I never used and would never have use for Adobe Stock. I had to Google it when I saw the charge on my C.C.
I know for a fact that I would not separately click for a free add-on that I would need to cancel within a month for a service that I wouldn't use so it must be added on at some point during the Creative Cloud bundle. This tactic is the reason regulators like the BBB exist.
When I called to cancel and request a refund for the couple of months that I was charged I was told I would need to pay a cancellation fee- this is definitely not stated in clear and easy to see terms during sign-up. I almost want to sign-up again and video tape the whole thing and post to Youtube to warn others how this fraud is committed.
I see there are MANY others who fell for this same scam. Adobe, conveniently, only offers customer support through chats that no real person ever enters and through phone representatives in developing countries who answer calls from their homes with thick accents . These reps are probably getting paid to follow these simple instructions: never offer refunds, only offer more free months in exchange of cancellation, keep you on hold for long periods of time to discourage you from continuing. There is absolutely no recording being done of your complaint so if you get disconnected, which you probably will (especially if you ask for their supervisor) you will start all over again.
This is all an elaborate plan to get extra money from people who are already willing to pay for their services. I am willing to join a group action.

Now to your rant. You make some untrue claims:
FYI: I'm not an Adobe employee, but a longtime customer of Adobe products.
