I have to completely agree.  They not only charged me multiple times
when my card info changed (and to cards no longer active, but the
associated bank reopened and charged me tons of fees, when it should
have been declined...), but they then go to collection agencies almost

And there is no fixing the situation, as they just don't care.  I
still have a case against them, which I won, which you can't enforce
judgment against them because their owners are out of country.
