Katy's complaint against My Geek Box

MyGeekBox will not allow me to cancel my subscription

Complaint against My Geek Box

I finally received my first shipment (after being charged twice by this point) and it was not what I expected. I requested that my account be cancelled and the company refused to do so. I will be filing a complaint with the BBB, Attorney General, and my bank to file a chargeback if that's what it takes for me to resolve this (if My Geek Box continues to refuse to do the right thing). Here's my request to cancel and their response: -- Thanks for contacting us at My Geek Box USA. Please do not reply to us at this e-mail address as we will not receive your message. This is an automated response. For your records, your original query was: I want to cancel my subscription. I am not happy with what I received and have already been billed twice with only one package shipped. Please cancel my subscription and confirm via email. One of our customer services advisors has reviewed your query and we are able to confirm the following: Hello Katy, Thank you for getting in touch about your subscription.

Still no confirmation that my account is cancelled. I am very disappointed in the product and the standard of service this poorly run company has provided.

I have contacted your team via email and Facebook messaging. Both times, I was told that I agreed to a 12 month subscription and that I would not be allowed to cancel. I reached out after receiving the first shipment to cancel, yet am being held hostage. I cannot believe that My Geek Box will not do the right thing here and just cancel my subscription. Please confirm cancellation.

My order number was 86213880. I have already cancelled future transactions from your company. You will not receive any additional funds from me, so I am asking that you cancel future orders so you do not lose money. I will not budge on this, I contacted your company upon receipt of my first package to cancel. CANCEL MY ACCOUNT IMMEDIATELY.

@MYGEEKBOX: REPLY TO MY EMAIL AND/OR THIS THREAD WITH CONFIRMATION THAT MY ACCOUNT HAS BEEN CANCELLED IMMEDIATELY.

Hi Katy, Thank you for your message. I am very sorry that you wish to cancel your subscription. I have contacted you through your account with a resolution for you. Thanks, Catherine - Feedback Team

The resolution was that I cancelled the card GeekBox was using, so they finally cancelled my subscription. While some customers may love their product, I did not and it should not have been this difficult to cancel a subscription upon receipt of my first delivery. I do not recommend this company to anyone. Terrible customer service and operations!!

Terrible company.
