LOL who is surprised by this. It's AOL at its greatest. "Sheltering" its users is what AOL does best.

Somebody needs to buy that company out and then shut it down...
Those idiots once charged our credit cards for like several hundred dollars. We had to call AOL and our Credit card companies to get it strightened out. We have never been a aol subscriber and how they got our numbers we dont know but they charged and charged and charged....
