TutorVista scam?

TutorVista offers quality online tutoring service for $100/month but they renew the subscription even if you don't use it until you cancel it yourself. This is what happened with me -

I reached TutorVista from google search engine. I was looking to clarify some concept in integration. I got good content there and then decided to talk to a tutor to get further help. After a sale pitch, the guy named 'Eric' offered me a free tutoring demo which was fine but I could get only one of my problems solved there. When I asked for more, they told me that I have to buy the subscription which I did for 49.99$ discounted price. They told me that it will get auto-renewed at $100 and that if I have to cancel it I have to cancel it before the subscription ends.

I used it for next 3 months, but after I finished my exams, I forgot to cancel the subscription (was too happy after exam ended).

Those guys charged me $100 dollars even if I stopped using it. I called them repeatedly and finally got only $50 dollars as refund.

I am very unhappy with this. I should have got refunded the whole amount since I did not use the service at all in that month.

This is scam. TutorVista is scam. Can somebody suggest any other quality tutoring service for my budget ($100)?

okay when i first singned up for tutor vista i thought it was a scam.

when you sign up they always say its one day only and its 49.99 or something for the first month.

you have to say you dont have enough money and they will give you a discount price of 34.99 wonce you sign it its aculy help full and does your hw for you. when your sick if on break from school you can pause the subscription.

when your month is almost done about 3 days b4 cancel your credit card so you dont get future charges and you ca still do it for the next three days.if you liked the sevice and think 35.99 is a fair price cancel your acount go back o the website say your to poor and sign up agan i have been doing this for months and im in 8th grade and is helped :roll

[ 08:53:58 PM ] : Let me double check with my manager to give you further discount ?

[ 08:54:07 PM ] Guest : sorry bye

See how he/she kept giving discount and alternative prices and ways even after saying i can't afford it and i'm getting my permit/going to college and getting my GED and the new price after that was only $15 less, this is a huge scam, they can't even speak english right, not professional at all. Some of it he/she said was like "is money is your concern" and they mistype alot to, you would think they would know how to type really good and faster if they're trying to scam you for your money and be a big coporation or whatever.

I discovered this site just from a yahoo answers post like about 20 minutes ago, first time knowing about this site, i had no intention of signing up, just wanted a little bit of help with math but i think the equation was wrong too, idk just the way the 10min Demo tutor was doing it and i think the Demo Tutor was the same person as the ACD Coordinator.

But yeah thats what i think from just that, this is just a huge scam, plus i know how they work a little because i used to talk back to alot of scammers(gold sellers and gifts) in the game World of Warcraft, i'm sure alot of you know that game and its scammers, lol. They always suck at scamming and stuff, idk but yeah this is a huge game.

Thanks for your time guys and i hope you be really careful on what you sign up for on the internet, it is the internet so, lol.
