They tried to sneak in a renewal by sending an email requiring action.

They engage in fraudulent renewals. I was sent an email saying I was going to be automatically renewed and they were going to charge my credit card. If I didn't want the renewal, I had to phone them. I immediately phoned them and asked ...
