Yes, I know, I know, not another photobucket saga!
But, this is info for those that have a Plus 20 account that is still valid.
Before all the problems kicked off recently, back in October last year I renewed my Plus 20 for another two years expiring October 2018.
Seeing all the aggravation I was comforted a bit by the fact I was ok for third party hosting until it expired as existing accounts would be honoured.
Had an e-mail from them a few days ago saying the Plus 20 had "finished in 2015" and mine had been "backed onto" or some expression another account.
They went on to say unless I paid for one of the "new" accounts my account would revert to a free one in 30 days and of course no third party hosting.
Not being one to take this sort of attempted extorsion I mailed them back asking if the plus 20 had finished in 2015 how come I was able to renew it in October 2016?
Also as I had paid for a two year subscription, then as they wanted to revert me to a "free" account nearly one year early then I would get a refund for the remaining period ?
A few days later I had an email in reply which said amongst other things :
"Thank you for reaching out to us about this. In regards to the email you received, we have decided to make an exception for your account. You will be able to stay on your current Plus 20 subscription and will not need to upgrade your account at this time. Your subscription will expire on October 14, 2018."
Not an exception.
They were trying it on.
So any of you who have a current Plus 20 bear this in mind if they try it on.
In this country it would be classed as attempted fraud.
