I couldn’t believe that I’d been opted-in, without my permission, to any new product — and I was stunned when I saw how much it cost. And further surprised when I saw that I would have to make a phone call to deal with all this.
I waited to link to this at first, because surely, I thought, this has to be a misunderstanding, a phishing scam not actually from Network Solutions, or some other reasonable alternative explanation.
Nope. They confirmed it:
“WebLock is intended for the top 1 percent of Web.com’s customers who own some of the world’s most highly-visible and valuable web properties.”
I bet the real reason they’re auto-enrolling this helpful “service” for the top 1% of customers is because the top 1% contains many huge companies and bulk registrants that are less likely to notice this extra fee.
I am shocked, just shocked, that Network Solutions is run by horrible people.
