    Woman Claims ACORN Continues to Deduct Money for a Now-Defunct Membership - FoxNews.com

    What a racket! Want to bet this gets blamed on one employee and not the group itself?

    And about those accusations in regards to ACORN shutting down but opening up under a different name? Well, this from the horse's ass er mouth itself...

    Stopping payments hell, if I were Ms. Sheldon, I would be demanding a refund of the more than $200 they stole from her... er, except they filed bankruptcy and it would do her no good.

    According to the article, she and her husband have bad credit and were afraid that doing so would make things worse and they would not be able to open another account. That seems ridiculous to me, but still I understand the fear.

    Also, not mentioned in the article, but there is a problem that if she has her mortgage and other payments deducted automatically, the changing of accounts can be a major inconvenience.

    Any time you set up Auto Pay, you relinquish control of your Account. You actually need the other Party's permission to terminate it. So much for protecting us from all Enemies, Foreign and Domestic, huh. Big Government really has our back on that. ;) What we need is more of it! :lol:
