Huh. Funny.
I can log into their forums now. Supposedly I was perma IP banned for life for having this as my signature.


Same here, but I was banned for simply being a dissenter of their bullshit business practices.

I wonder what the membership fallout was after the mass cancellations. Anyone know if there is any way to know based on government filings or anything?

The discounts from ECA were nice though.

They still are. :)

Whats your game? Keep adding pre-orders to your order through Amazon CS with the stacked 30% discount so the order never closes, then if you want something else immediately, just have Amazon CS add it to the open order?

There are a few of you out there still doing that. Kudos, I guess, but I'm shocked Amazon hasn't figured it out yet.

So this is the SECOND time I have gotten a large fraudulent charge on my Credit Card AFTER contact with the ECA. It isn't for the ECA, but I believe it is related.


1) I only used my card at 3 places ever. Meijer (because it is a Meijer card), Sam's club for a chocolate shake (white trash I know), and for the ECA in 2009.


The first time it happened was after I cancelled my ECA account. I got hit with a large charge from England. I then disputed it and changed my card number.


Recently, I started getting emails again from the ECA. I unsubscribed and 3 days later BAM! another fraudulent charge form England.

Now I will have to dispute and change my card number again.

I haven't checked to see if it is the same place in England as I have to look through my old statements.

Is there any point in even trying to contact them to stop the emails and unsubscribe again?

They'll just tell you that they have no current way to unsubscribe you without a written letter because the button on their site doesn't actually work.

I've been getting their (what, daily?) emails for about 2 months now. I never got them before, even when I was an actual member. Very strange stuff going on over there...

As far as I know, I have never been charged again after my initial purchase - but I should waltch more carefully. Unlike slowdive there, I use my card probably 30-40 times per month ;).

So I haven't gotten anything this year, but apparently I've received their emails from about a year ago.

I've been getting their emails for the past couple of months as well. It goes straight to my spam folder, to the deleted pile.

God damnit. That's what they said years ago if I recall. What I'm afraid is they're going to try and claim we owe them money for years of unpaid dues years from now.

I've had their emails since I originally signed up. One a day with a few stories from around the web. I actually look forward to it now.

I've not been charged, nor have I ever paid for a membership.

LMAO, I was just trolling. I have no idea what they'd say, but that's what happened when people tried to cancel subs in the first place. I guess the sarcasm wasn't thick enough.

I spent so much time on the original thread detailing the drama of the giant mailed-in unsubscribe box that I had to pull at least one all-nighter to graduate from college.

This is what I get when trying to sign in: The username **** has not been activated or is blocked.

Does this mean Im safe and wont be auto-renewed?

I cancelled back when they said you could via online so I get that message... But I'm not sure if I remember unchecking "auto-renew". ughhhhhh

I believe I had cancelled mine back before I was due for my first "payment". I've been keeping an eye on my credit card and haven't received any erroneous charges from them, however, still do get emails from them (even though I cancelled). Is this normal, to still be getting emails from them?

I don't know, but I'm in the same boat. I cancelled over a year ago.
