I signed up for efax's free trial a year ago because I needed to send *one* document to my previous university. It did not work.
I never used the service again. Little did I know that in their small print I was requested to cancel the free trial by phone. As I left the other university, that email account, which I used to create the shady efax account was discontinued. I probably cancelled the efax contract via that email but cannot remember and most importantly, cannot prove it.They have been charging me £9.93 a month as j2efax.
I only realised that,as this bank account has been idle for a while, because on an unrelated event ( or maybe not?)- the IT department at work emailed everyone regarding a phoney efax email containing viruses. When I saw the j2efax charge in my statement I immediately called my bank and efax. The guy told me it was cancelled and said that I would receive a cancellation email right away. He did mot send it.
I do not think I can get a refund. They find loopholes in legislation to scam people. Shame on you, efax!
As the sales rep said they are much like Netflix free trials so totally legitimate. Lovely company, eh?
