Why I hate Yahoo, chapter 36

I have complained about Yahoo mail many times. About three years ago, I made the mistake of taking a Yahoo premium account — just to keep Yahoo from killing my account, which is its way of strongarming customers into paying. I canceled the account at least two years ago but just found it on my credit card bill. I spent 20 minutes on the phone with the Philippines trying to cancel the account and get a refund. They refuse to refund. The best part is that I asked for the guy’s name — Joe — and said I was going to blog about this, which I think is only fair. He told me to stop “recording” the call or he would terminate it. They can record. We can’t. Shades of AOL. Their attitude is every bit as bad as Comcast or AOL. Compare and contrast with Google. Yahoo is the last old-style company. It treats its customers like prisoners. They think they can make money telling us what we cannot do. Google has killed them for good reason. I never go to Yahoo. In a word: Yahoo sucks.

    No argument from me on this comment Jeff.

    Now if only there were another provider for high speed internet besides Comcast in my area.

    yahoo does indeed suck.

    In April of 2004 Yahoo gave the Chinese government information it was not legally obliged to give about one of its users, Shi Tao, which resulted in a ten year sentence in a Chinese prison for this journalist. At that point, any doubt about the concern of this company for its customers should have evaporated completely in every mind. These people, in order to secure a better access to a market _without which_ they remain billionaires, will send a man to be tortured. What the hell else needs to happen? Good G-d, if Yahoo doesn’t care about Shi Tao’s life or their own souls, why in the world would they care about your refund?

    “In a word: Yahoo sucks.”
    Umm I counted two words but I digress. Agreed. They went from being the place to start your internet journey to a place holding no significance.

  • http://www.profitablehospitality.com Ken Burgin

    Two years ago I mistakenly registered several domain names with them. Each year I try to cancel the re-registration as they’re no longer needed, but I’m never able to find out how to cancel. They tell me they’re about to charge me, but not how to stop it. Nasty tactics.

  • http://www.golfnorwich.com/ jim

    what a whiner. tell your credit card not to accept the charges and dispute any that you have already been charged. also, how did they “strongarm” you into paying for yahoo mail. I’ve had a free account for years and use it as my primary email.

    http://www.golfnorwich.com/

  • al

    Just cry to your credit card company, tell them you knew nothing about these charges, they will get a refund for you.

  • http://www.rollingdoughnut.com/ Tony

    I had this problem with Yahoo four years ago. I registered for a trial membership on the college football radio program. I didn’t like it, so I canceled within the noted trial period.

    Everything was fine until I saw a charge. I called and complained. The rep said that, unless I had an e-mail verifying the cancellation, he couldn’t help. Interesting, considering I never received one. But he agreed to cancel my account.

    Next month, another charge. Only I’d canceled the account again on the website and received an e-mail this time. I faxed it to them as proof. They conceded that I’d canceled it and promised to return the $4.95.

    Next month, no refund and another charge. I went through the same process again. They conceded and agreed to return my $9.90. (They wouldn’t agree to return the very first $4.95 they stole, which was enough to sour me on the company.) They refunded the final month’s charge immediately. Four years later, I’m still waiting for the second $4.95.

    I haven’t used Yahoo since.

  • http://nonotagain.com Donald

    The amusing thing is that calls they field over items like this often cost them more than the service they charged you for. Think about it–I’m sure it cost Yahoo more than $4,95 for you to talk to 2 different customer service reps.

    For the record, I still use Yahoo email. It makes a great spam dumping ground. Any time I must give my email address out for something, I use my Yahoo address so that it doesn’t clutter up an Inbox I actually use.

    Donald

  • http://www.rollingdoughnut.com/ Tony

    It certainly cost them more than $4.95, which quickly became my intention. I called them so many times, asked to speak to supervisors at the end of the conversation, used long pauses, and so on. I knew I would get nowhere, but I paid for the hassle in advance, I might as well enjoy it.

  • http://deleted Tansley – addendum

    Well, sure…Yahoo sucks. So does AOL. The thing is, NEVER PAY a company like this…do everything you can on their portal for FREE, exploit the HECK out of ‘em, and take their surveys to advise them on how to stop screwing up so badly.

    Once you learn their limitations, and know how to work within their framework to accomplish what you want, they’re not so bad. Kind of like an old ‘Pocket Fisherman®’… If you need to cast out into deeper water, it’s as far away as a few keystrokes…

  • Eric

    Jim,

    I tried that during a dispute I had years ago, and found you *can’t* get your credit card company to preemtively refuse charges from a business. You can get the charges removed later, but if they charge you the next month you have to do it all over.

    Yahoo must have the worst customer service ever
    It is impossible to find an email address for “the webmaster” or for “technical_problems”,
    to indicate the problem I suddenly have now they revamped the mail site and are using Norton AV (another bad custumer unfriendly company, see wikipedia!)
    For what its worth I leave the email I would like to send to Yahoo here

    Hi
    Please have a look why any kind of zip file is not passing thru the Norton AV engine

    1) I cannot send my zip files, because Norton AV says they are infected but I can send the
    contained files separately; I am using a Linux machine to zip the files so it is highly unlikely
    they are really infected

    ic_rel.18.06.2008.001.zip (241KB) Virus threat detected. The virus could not be cleaned. Please run the virus scan on your machine. If I unzip this file I can send the separte files without complaints about infection

    2) I cannot download a zip file sent to:
    After Norton AV scanning I get:
    “The file is not available for download. Please try later”
    And despite multiple attempts I stillhave not got the file

    Very disppointed with this, I presume this is a Norton AV problem

    Yahoo ruined my life!!

    I have had a Yahoo account for years and years. One day I couldn’t access it, to my surprise, all my passwords were hacked from my PC at work. All my personal information, photos of my family, work related stuff stored on Yahoo is now lost forever. They wont allow access at all. How am I to remember a bloody answer to a security question I filled in 10 years ago. Well, At least I remembered my birthday. I feel like Yahoo has invaded my home, stole all my possessions and cut my heart out.

    I am so upset that I want to ruin these bastards. They wont escalate this issue past Customer support. To think I have supported them all these years with information on my habits, and this is how they repay me.

    If there is ever an opportunity to fuck them over, I am here to help. Just give me the word. themeibo@gmail.com

  • http://yahoo Lori

    I just don’t get how they get off asking for a credit card & your 3 digit security code to grant access to your child having an account. They call it an “age verification” process. How is THEM having MY cc info going to prove that my child has adult permission to have an account? How many kids are we forcing to sneak their parents info only to have it used in ways it should not be. They say they will not charge you….but then again they also have drilled us for years that they will NEVER ask for any personal info like that. What’s up here!?

  • SpaceRat

    On those occasions that I am being unfairly charged on my credit card: as soon as I realize that an unfair charge is being levied (such as AOL did to me), I immediately call my credit card company and report the card stolen.

    Of course, you will be without that credit card for a couple of weeks while you wait for the new one to be issued, but at least you’ll know they can’t make any more charges against it.

    • vadim

      for such cases, you can get Paypal plugin, it allows creating temporary credit card that you can deactivate any moment. Vvery useful when dealing with types of AOL, Video Professor, all these “CD clubs”, and other thieves.

      The law is harsh for a kid who shoplifts a candy, but these corporations steal from thousands of people for decades without slightest risk.

  • stan

    Well I just wanted to add that yahoo mail really sucks.
    How can some people still use it, that’s very strange.
    They ask money for the features that every webmail has for free.
    They look horrible, and they have 2 versions at the same time – when you use advanced, you still have to go to normal version to change your options – that’s ridiculous.
    They suck

  • Kevin

    I’m trying to get Yahoo to give me access to my account. My account is 5 years old and unfortunately for me I cannot answer enough of their security questions — I’ve went through about 20 zip codes that I’ve lived in or near in the past five years.

    I’m not sure if someone got into my account, but the password is changed, the zip codes aren’t any I know — I’m not sure what to do now!

  • Simon

    I made a big mistake signing up for Flickr. I should have backed out when I saw that Yahoo was the owner.
    But I needed to safeguard my private photos and 24 dollars for unlimited uploading seemed like a fair deal.
    I uloaded a couple af hundred pictures. It took ages, even with my high speed broadband connection (I think they have made it slow by purpose).
    Then for some reason af few days later I couldn´t login with my YahooID. I wrote it down immediately after I signed up, so what happened?
    I tried to get a new password which is fairly simple in Google, Facebook and whatever.
    When I signed up Yahoo asked and got a secondary email adress, and could just send the new password to this adress.
    But they wont give me anything since I cant remember the birthdate I signed up (I dont give internes companies that sort of private information).
    STATUS: I have paid for an account – uploaded hundreds of private photos I cant acces or delete. And Yahoo wont help because I dont remember the birtdate I signed up with: Pure crap company.

      > They deserve to be bankrupted and just vanish…

      Sadly, the fact that this does not happen speaks not in our favor. They have been in business for decades, do exist, and even prosper (their stock grows). AOL also still exists, Experian still lures people with “free credit report”, Video Professor still offers his wisdom “for free” and able to pay for his airtime, etc. etc. All this means that most of us are, sadly, morons.

    Yes I hate yahoo mail with a passion they keep adding stuff like chat and your contacts and it just gets slower and slower. And don’t get me started on those annoying animated banners that you have to wait to load with every page you open. I want a basic email service that works fast not some web 2.0 site with all the bells and whistles that take for ever to load. Wake up Yahoo don’t you realise you are slowly dying.

  • Alexandra

    Agreed

  • Yatish SK

    I hate yahoo from the core, my first email account was with hotmail & a few years later when i signed in for the gmail account, i got a free gmail email delivered to my hotmail, thence i’ve been with gmail. Its so smart and cool email client. No friggin flash ads or shitloads like that you have on yahoo. I had an account with yahoo for my messenger, but strangely nearly after using it for 6 years they deleted it saying some “violation in TOS” WTF??? what did i violate. i wrote back to them but never got a reply.
    I just cant stand the idiotic yahoo mail client, its so fucking disgusting. all sane people around the world should quit yahoo mail, that way yahoo will know its worth.
    Same goes for yahoo search. Both yahoo and microsoft’s Bing are the shittiest search engines.
    Let them ROT in hell
    AMEN

    I am going to switch my email over to gmail today. I’m trough with Yahoo. I noticed charges for a local listings and web hosting account I thought I closed almost 2 years ago – they were able to charge on my EXPIRED credit card (thanks Wamu/Chase for looking out for the CUSTOMER!!)…. it took 5 phonecalls over 2-1/2 hours on hold to get my accounts canceled and they would not refund me any money. They do suck….

    OH! and Bing kept interrupting my craigslist posting – as I was attaching photos Bing would suddenly appear, effectively deleting my work so I’d have to start over and over…. I am going to block Bing from my desktop.

    Have you ever had Google screw you over due to variances in your AdSense account? They dropped my account with NO explanation, won’t return emails, and i couldn’t get through on the phone. What, don’t they have Android? I also had an AdWords account for a while, but I ended up paying Google nearly 5 times the value of what I made BEFORE expenses. Google’s model for internet advertisement comments only benefits ONE company reliably and consistently: Google itself. And I’m surprised that people / customers put up with this sort of treatment. And they want me to use their products. Arrogant Google at it again. I wish I could go to the Googleplex right now and talk to somebody about my situation?

    I have tried getting a new email but ATT almost forces you to use yahoo!

  • Rachel Frans

    Yahoo doesn’t give a shit about its customers just their ability to sell ads on their ISP. My father is blind and uses the website for his email but is continually deluged with ads for him to buy cars, movies to see and other irrelevant bullshit. I’ve complained to Yahoo but they never answer any of my requests. It’s a corporate cluster-fuck who belives profit is more important than customer service and customer service is unknown to Yahoo and they couldn’t care less.

    Here’s what I just sent them (and blogged)
    Dear Robot,
    I think you must be a robot as a human would surely have read the trail of emails about this. I will assume that you are a robot that was trained in English. Therefore, I expect that you will be able to follow the content of this email. I apologise in advance if you are easily offended.
    I have typed these things till I am blue in the face, but WTF I apparently have nothing better to do with my time.
    Since 30 September I have had trouble with my Yahoo email address which is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    My husbands email which is yahoo works fine on the same computers and same internet connection. I have sent requests etc to Yahoo every day since then, and I still have the same problem. I get automated stupid responses then a follow up which does not address the issue and when I write again the loop starts anew.
    I have attached a document of what I think are the highlights of this marvellously pointless exercise.
    Just a few suggestions for next time this happens to people. You may choose to implement them or not, I really don’t care because I will never use your crummy ‘service’ again…
    If someone says they can’t log in to their email, why do you send an information request to that email? Dumb
    If someone says they have carried out all the tasks suggested in your mail, and followed everything on the laughably named HELP page, and still their email doesn’t work, why do you continue to tell them that YOU are happy to report you couldn’t replicate the error. WE don’t care that YOU are happy. We are NOT.
    Why do you ask for screenshots and suggest people use an alt tab function when they have advised right from the start they use an ipad and there are NO SUCH KEYS.
    In fact, why even bother sending ridiculous automated template replies to people that say you will be happy to help within 24 hours. I have been waiting more than 10 times that long and have not had one sensible interaction.
    Good manners prevents me from telling you what I really think about this whole thing.
    I can appreciate that perhaps, like Blackberry, there has been an outage that affects many customers. If so, tell us. If not, find somebody with a brain to sort out my individual problem. If you are unable to hire anyone with a brain you should use a different employment agency or pay more money. Remember, if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.
    If you can solve my problem please feel free to email me.
    If you wish to apologise for the appalling lack of customer service or common good manners in your ‘organisation’ (I can’t believe I called it that), please fell free to email me.
    If you want to send me another automatic response or stupid template with unhelpful hints like use the alt tab button, may I suggest you use your time more productively and have a toilet break.
    Goodbye

    I have found that it’s worth the investment to go with a company that has great local service and is customer friendly. One of my favorites is godaddy. There are many others and I don;t want to hype just one, but they have a live english speaking US based phone support and their technical knowledge and patience is incredible. No matter what the issue is, they have been quick to resolve it.

    I have never had so many problems…how the hell can rid of yahoo???? I can’t even read my mail…I can’t even uninstall it…it is more like a virus than anything..I just fricking hate it…if I had not just bought this computer I would go buy a new one…might anyway!!!!

  • bess

    why do I hate Yahoo? because you can never talk to a human and get any answers or problems solved. The crap ads that come in on the right side ike “pch”that you can’t get rid of, cover up things you need, and the email screen jumps down so you see the other “crap” advertisements on top and there is no one to tell me how to get rid of it.

    I wouldn’t pay anyone for an email account. Not when you get NO say in what kind of account you NEED. Yahell has announced that as of June. Classic is being killed. Can’t think of a better word to call an act like this.

    This is a disastor for me.

    I have tried to find an email i could use. To fit my needs. I have had little luck. The basic gmail was crap. I have 1 hotmail account that only worked for a few emails. But now they are gone. Outlook took them over and turned what already was a sub-standard email service into something that looks only slightly better then the email service that ACR jr. college use 14+ yrs. ago.

    The first time I have seen any site on the web delivery down grade their pages and service.

    I am not looking at a future of next to no email. This whole thing just sucks. Just like ‘yayell’.

    There must be ONE decant email service out there. I only what ONE!..

    I hate Yahoo because you have to continually sign in whenever you post a comment or navigate anywhere. I hate Yahoo because it controls you, you can’t control it! I want to disconnect Yahoo from Facebook but even with directions cannot figure out how! I HATE YAHOO!

  • Garry Owen Ault

    Ye Gods! I though I was the only one that hated Yahoo. Behold the Promised Land!

  • guest

    I hate yahoo too. They seem to think that they KNOW what’s best for their customers. Their help facility is a pile of crap. They continually make changes to their interface to mail and don’t care what their customers think or want or need.

    Google is not ANY better.

    To HELL with yahoo.

    • bob

      how dare u?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!

  • Haynes

    You bastards, I’m done with you. I’ll be switching tomorrow to another transmission for my emails.

  • Snetterton

    Agreed. Yahoo is the shittiest email service out there. I want to leave, but I can’t swallow my bile at the concept of paying them for access to their transfer functions.

  • Dusk Lipton

    Unbelievable. Yahoo SUCKS so bad now, it’s unbelievable. This morning mail that usually is in my inbox was in my spam file. Unlike other times when one can click on “not spam” and have Yahoo put it back in your inbox, this didn’t work today. So, I forwarded to my inbox. Could I open the needed attachments on the ten or so emails? Nope–not in my inbox, not in spam and not in my gmail account that I forwarded them to. I too USED to pay them $20 per year to be nice. No more as of this month. Luckily, I hope, my credit card they have on file expired . . . . . so maybe I can avoid their future fraudulent charges. Is there any way to contact Yahoo? I haven’t looked too hard, but seems to me they’ve cut us all off from getting in touch with their highnesses.

  • Judy

    I don’t even know what I did to get this ridiculous Yahoo Home Page. I did not ask for it and I feel so violated by Yahoo. Get out of my life. Not the first time either. I have to re-load my whole computer to get rid of Yahoo. Aren’t there any laws??? . . . or ways to get rid of them???

  • hoss

    I hate Yahoo cause they keep deleting my email account without any notification what so ever!
    Bastid’s.

  • speedy dan

    We have Dish satellite internet. They were with Wildblue, but now bought some equipment from Hughsnet which gives us “more speed” but they cut us back to 10 gigs
    use over rolling 30 days from 17 gigs. Since they switched us we have had nothing but trouble just getting yahoo to open. Two service visits and a $92 cleaning by a local technician ironed out a lot of it. Then Dish says we have to update Explorer to #10 which we did. Their excuse is that technology moves fast and we have to update or the “old” systems wont work. So we updated that and we still get “can’t open this page” message.
    I emailed Yahoo and of course they don’t answer, they don’t have to. So now we are caught between Dish and Yahoo and still have crappy service.
