Not returning my call. They took 500.00 out of my account.
I went to the donation site and contributed 5.00 to one candidate. Went to another site and they took 500.00 out of my acct because they had my acct number...

Said I "authorized" recurring political "donations" -
ActBlue acted as if they represented candidate Julian Castro and were raising funds for his participation in a debate. Turns out they are not approved by his campaign. I made a ONE TIME donation for $25, but today I received a "receipt" saying that might recurring donation fo $25 had been charged. I NEVER approved a recurring donation. I have requested a refund and am waiting to hear back from them.

OVER THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS I FOUND UNRECOGNIZABLE CHARGES ON MY CREDIT CARD---SPECIFICALLY NONPROFITS
AFTER DOING SOME CHECKING I FOUND ACT BLUE WAS INVOLVED WITH THESE CHARGES----ESPECIALLY WHEN THE NONPROFIT WANTS YOUR OPTIMUM

Unauthorized charges for donations I did not make
While trying to make a donation an error occurred. The only option was to confirm the donation with the error, so instead I simply closed the website without confirming the donation. I then received an email that the donation with the error had been made.

Unauthorized credit card charge of 1,000
I made a $5 contribution to Act blue on 4/20/2019; when received my receipt, it thanked me for the $1,000 donation. There is no doubt that I made a contribution of only $5.00. Attempted to contact actblue via phone but had to leave a message; I also emailed the organization twice (including leaving a voicemail message). I have already contacted my bank and the withdraw is in pending status-this charge has overdrawn my account by $800 plus took $200 out of my account- these monies were already designated to pay a large loan. will not make any more donations.

Giving once but being charged monthly forever
Gave donation thinking it was one time, then charged monthly forever. Easy to not see the small print that you have to click not to have it be recurring monthly. Even when I went back and thought I was canceling everything the charges kept coming on my credit card every month.

Unauthroized charges to credit card
I wanted to contribute $25 to a campaign. I was careful not to check the recurring monthly contribution. ActBlue turned this into a monthly contribution without my knowledge. They also took various amounts for a total of about $250 - all without my authorization. I had to spend a significant amount of time with my bank to get these charges reversed. Stay away from these crooks!

saying I have made a WEEKLY 10.00 donation to Doug Jones
I got an email thanking me for a WEEKLY DONATION to Doug Jones. I have not made any donation to anybody recently, and NEVER a WEEKLY donation.

Charging Paypal account monthly without authorization
I am assuming I made a donation initially to a political cause, but then without my knowledge or consent ActBlue.com began charging my PayPal account every month.

Actblue recurring contributions
After reading the complaints here I contacted Actblue. They told me that it is the campaign that designs the form including the checkbox for recurring - so if it is checked by default that is the campaigns choice. I've used AB a lot and had no problem with them. Complaints about recurring etc should probably be sent to the campaign?

Took More than I pledged without admitting the donation in any form
On 9/17/2018 I made a donation of $3.00 with a 50 cent tip. Checking my bank statements the following day I find ActBlue had taken $53.00 out of my account. Numerous emails on their various website plus messages left at the only phone number available has netted no response.

Recurring donations scam!!!
😆 act blue-WARNING TO ANYONE DONATING TO ACT BLUE!
I will not ever donate via ACT BLUE again, as it’s nothing but a big rip-off / scam!!
It has on several occasions turned my one time donation into a monthly recurring donation without my consent on my credit card!
And even after I requested my money back several times, they have not responded to me!
Please find another method of sending a payment and proof that this is a bonafide non-profit organization.
Thanks, but no thanks from a former contributor in Hawaii.

They purport to be collecting money for the Gov of NC. I cancelled my “subscription” but they continue to take money from me. Thank goodness I use PayPal and I filed a dispute
Review by Namkyu1 year ago
Last night I sent a donation to a political candidate of 20 dollars on my credit card and then found they had changed it to 224.40 dollars. They have no way to contact them on there website. The only recourse I have is to dispute it with my credit card company. Do not use this this company to donate money do it directly to the candidate.

Unauthorized use of credit cards
I do not know what is going on with Act Blue but this is the latest unauthorized charge on my card after ten others including one for 500.00 I suggest if you want to donate NEVER give them you cc or sign up for Express donations.I even changed my credit card and got a new one and they still found it out and charged the new card.

They set up a recurring monthly political contribution that I did not sign up for after I gave once.

Recurring payments on my credit card when I made a one-time political donation.
I made a one-time political donation and have been billed monthly on my credit card repeatedly. There was no indication on the site when I sent in my original donation information that the charges would be recurring. This is fraud.

Unauthorized recurring donation
This morning I made a one-time contribution of $25.00 plus tip and got a confirmation email. I then received another email that shows I agreed to a monthly recurring amount of $200 WHICH I DID NOT AUTHORIZE!!!
Review by Dallon Schrodt1 year ago
Unbeknownst to me ActBlue*DailyKos” has been charging my credit card a recurring charge of $100/mo. For the past six months and I just caught it this month. I was able to dispute two of those charges and the fraud division of my credit card company is investigating.
