Let the court decide
I too was charged a large amount (Americians stealing from other Americians) under recurring billing, with ads on pause, Illegal in Ohio.
I have filled an offical complaint with the Attorney Generals Office.
I am filling a suit for wire and mail fraud against them as well in our area.
The employees are trained to handle these complaints in a manner that is false and placating to the customer.
This recurring billing seems to be a new trend. Someday the 25 year old employees or less at Google will get this done to them. What goes around will come back to you.
Google must not get away with this.
