JustAnswer is a scam. I was using Google to try to figure out a problem with my car's ignition, and happened to find a link to JustAnswer where I supposedly paid a licensed mechanic $1 to answer my question. Little did I realize as I clicked away that the small print told me I was also signing up for a $34/month membership to keep this useless mechanic on retainer. Like, sure, anybody on earth actually wants to pay $34 a month to constantly ask questions about their car! Sane people everywhere do that!
I didn't realize for about 7 or 8 months that there was this mysterious $34 charge popping up on my credit card each month. Sure, that's partly on me for not paying close enough attention to my credit card statements. But still, life gets hectic sometimes, and we occasionally have other priorities besides carefully examining our monthly credit card statements to make sure predatory scammers like JustAnswer aren't screwing us over for $34 every month.
Then when I tried to cancel the membership, they sent me a response saying how they were sorry to see me go, and that they totally weren't a scam website at all. The next month, the $34 charge appeared on my credit card again. So overall, it looks like so far I've given about $270-300 to this useless scam company, all in return for one answered question (incorrectly, as it turns out). What a f***ing bargain!
