1 review UPDATE REVIEW: Customer service is very polite and they will refund you
1 helpful vote (only for 3 months though, so make sure you cancel/unsubscribe as you
don't want to use the service anymore). I still think they should notify
customers via an email or e-receipt that they withdraw money from your
account.
