“Classmates - Big Ripoff”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by Jamirc354 (1 review written)

Be prepared if you sign up for Classmates. They keep billing your credit card forever. It is impossible to find a phone number on their website and very difficult to cancel your subscription!!!… Read Full Review

“I thought I'd test it out, so I signed up for a free...”

Written on: 25/08/2014 by Minimao (1 review written)

I thought I'd test it out, so I signed up for a free trial using a fake name and picked a high school at random that I never attended. The fake name was such a name that nobody could possibly have. The next day, I got a message from Classmates.com saying that someone from my high school wants to contact me. BUT, before they would reveal who, they want money for a membership. If you went to a doctor and they told you that you had a disease that you did not and offered to treat you for it… Read Full Review

“Watch Out”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by frands (1 review written)

I had forgotten signing up for this subscription. When it came through as a renewal on my credit credit card, I immediately called to cancel. They refused to credit the renewal. Classmates did not contact me that they were charging my card. I would not recommend this website there is no traffic on it. … Read Full Review

“NEVER NEV ER NEVER”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by GiovannaDickinson (1 review written)

I am disputing a charge of $15.00 on Classmates.com. I will not pay this charge as it was not authorized by me. AND I WILL NEVER JOIN THIS AGAIN FOR THIS REASON. YOU PEOPLE MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH BY COMPUTER OR PHONE. NOW I KNOW WHY!!! I WILL EVEN CHECK THE LEGALITY OF YOUR WEBSITE, AS I HAVE DOUBTS IF IT IS OPERATING LEGALLY. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO WORTH RECEIVED BY THE WEBSITE. IT IS INMPOSSIBLE TO USE AND TO CANCEL!… Read Full Review

“Classmates Site Sucks!”

Written on: 04/02/2014 by tootsietootoo (1 review written)

I subscribed on February 1, 2014. TRIED to unsubscribe on February 3, 2014. The site would not let me. Called a number I had to SEARCH for on the internet. No email address or number on their website. No answer on the number where I was told to hold. I went to multiple high schools and Classmates will not recognize factors like that or the changed names of grade schools no longer in existence. All my old classmates are either dead or too lazy to use a computer so Classmates is worthless… Read Full Review

“STUNG, NOT WORTH 1 STAR”

Written on: 08/01/2014 by CPort (1 review written)

Ripoff from the beginning. The reprint yearbook had a name on the front cover and the pages were totally marked up with green marker. Do not waste your money. This must be the only copy they had to reproduce and they will continue to make money on it. Merced High, 1977, worthless copy. Don't fall for it, RUN!!… Read Full Review

Memory Lane, Inc. to Pay Up to $9.5 Million to Settle Suit over Phantom Friends - Jun 24, 2012  Memory Lane, Inc. has agreed to pay up to $9.5 million to its users to settle a lawsuit that accused the social network of sending emails that made people believe their old friends from high school were reaching out to connect only to discover, after paying for a membership, that their long-lost buddies were nowhere to be found. The proposed settlement, filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle… Read Full Review

What? They paid a settlement but are still continuing (as of August 2014) to repeat the same thing?!

“Once Great; Not now.”

Written on: 05/04/2013 by jonsanrc (1 review written)

I was one of the earliest users and subscribers of Classmates. It was great then but no longer. It does have just one good feature now and that is the reproduction of some of the class yearbooks (not all) that you would want. The price is reasonable for the books and the quality is good. I'm only a member now because they gave me some sort of "special" (reasonable) rate for a two year renewal. In the beginning it was easy to make photo albums but they have messed those up now, also. It has… Read Full Review

“Find my old Yearbook”

Written on: 12/03/2012

Classmates.com has seemed to added a bunch of yearbooks to their site. I found mine that I had lost and purchased a yearbook reprint. I received as promised and my kids got a kick out of seeing me in my old yearbook. I then went back and found my Mom's 1959 Yearbook which she hadn't seen in years. I know a lot of people knock Classmates, but I really like their yearbook offering. I thought it was easy to find the yearbooks I was interested in. Thanks. … Read Full Review

“Stay away from classmates.com. ”

Written on: 04/05/2011

Stay away from classmates.com.
They trap you into a one year membership and refuse to refund when you protest. They should be investigated by the Attorney General. They count on no one willing to make a stink over $30. What a sleaze outfit… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2010

This site is a rip off. Very hard to navigate. I was charged a fee without notice. The only thing they would do is tell me to go in and change status to manual, then next year at this time they won't charge another fee. Terrible customer service. I would give them a 0 rating!… Read Full Review

You are absolutely correct. The site is clunky and does not deliver the information in concise format. All kinds of info that is worthless and out of date.

Written on: 11/11/2010

What a worthless site. It is designed to tempt you into being a paid member through lies and misrepresentation. You need a legal degree to determine that everything they offer is really only hypothetical. In reality they deliver only the idea, no substance. Oh, and try to drop your membership! You will start unsolicited unrated messages on your facebook!… Read Full Review

Classmates is a big rip off. they do not pre warn you that they are withdrawing money from your checking account before hand. with the way the ecomony is you think a e-mail warning would be fair.
you can find more friends and class mates for free on facebook with out paying a fee.

I called them at 206-301-5900 and they said no way would they refund the charge they are heartless cold non-caring people

Written on: 09/09/2010

STUNG! Like many of the reviewers before me due to the website being user unfriendly and getting spaming emails saying "Jennifer S. wants to make contact with you!" I signed up for the Classmates Gold Membership. A year later, without warning BANG you get a charge out of no where. $42.92 was my charge (because I live in Australia)

DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE GOLD MEMBERSHIP! Use Facebook instead....free and user friendly. Don't be sucked in!

I'm strongly considering disputing the charge… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/06/2010

Suckered into Gold membership after emails saying old friends were trying to reach me. No one did. Their web site was very difficult to get help from. A job and email change ended the SPAM from them, but I couldn't log into the accouint anymore. Tried to quit last year, but couldn't get through nor log into account. This year I have spent lots of time chatting back and forth with classmates.com, learning that they default to auto renew, too bad for me. No refund policy, became my fault that I… Read Full Review

“Sorry to say but I agree with the earlier reviews....”

Written on: 18/02/2010

Sorry to say but I agree with the earlier reviews. When I first registered 2 years ago I found the site very user unfriendly. I upgraded to Gold but nothing really changed. Help from the site is useless. I didn't renew my membership last year but they took the money from my credit card account anyway.
I get email garbage from them constantly. I've asked to have it stopped but my emails to them are ignored, in fact I began to get more garbage. To make sure they don't steal money from me again… Read Full Review

Regarding Classmates.com

I registered several months ago and pd for the Gold Membership. In losing interest quickly (as none of my friends were on there)I barely signed on to the website. Since then I've gotten married, moved and changed my e-mail address. Recently I've tried to sign back on, since I did pay for the service; but now cannot remember my password. In trying to use the "forgot password" feature, they will send me a new password to access my account but they will only send it to… Read Full Review

Ses6239's Comment

Written on: 26/03/2010

I found this review very helpful because...classmates business model, which involves over charging for the product provided and the tactic of luring the customer in by using the bait and switch tactic, and then blocking the registrant from all useful information is totally unethical. Now add to that the tactic of charging the customer's credit card even when they have stopped renewing IS CRIMINAL.
<br/>BEWARE PEOPLE, THERE ARE INTERNET COMPANIES THAT STEP JUST OVER THE BOUNDS OF LEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICES TO SUCKER SMALL AMOUNTS OF MONEY FROM THE CONSUMERS KNOWING THAT 99.99% WILL NOT TAKE LEGAL ACTION!
