I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ***, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me
Thank you very much for your help in this matter

The customer spoke with a representative that tried to ask her questions about why she signed up but she kept interrupting him and would not talk about itShe eventually hung up and the representative issued a full refund back to her account at that point

Though they have arrived at the lab, we have been experiencing a delay in getting those kits scanned into the systemI see that this customer spoke with us today and resolved this issue

We do not offer refunds by email, so when we receive an email asking for a refund, we try calling the customer to discuss thisThis customer called in and was refunded in fullIt takes 3-business days for a refund to process

We are open 7-MST which is also 9-EST Monday through FridayWe do not issue refunds by emailIt does look like one of our reps has attempted to contact you by phoneI will have them try to get in touch with you again to resolve this issue

Complaint: ***
I am rejecting this response because:
I'm writing on behalf of my mother *** *** regarding this compliant. She received your original response along with two other responses. She also received an email
from Heritage saying someone would respond to her. She hasn't received any response - no email, no phone call etc. Her attempts to call Heritage have resulted in being connected to someone whose English was difficult to understand, she was put on hold for more than an hour and then disconnected when someone finally answered. I believe my mother spoke on the phone to you and you instructed her to send documentation regarding this complaint. Attached is a screen shot of the original email offer she received. There are also screen shots of a second offer Heritage emailed when my mother tried to sign up for the original offer. Finally screen shots of the's orignal emails are also attached Prior to my mother calling you Miss *** she thought she had responded "unsatisfied" through the's Online Complaint Management System but judging by the message below the complaint was closed due to her not responding. Unfortunately your system is not easily navigated by elderly persons. As you can see from the two offer screen shots Heritage offers an excellent deal of 50% off to renew the subscription. Then when my mother tried to renew the offer it came up as 25% off. Seems to me Heritage uses a "Bait and Switch" tactic - most likely figuring people won't notice the difference. My mother tried calling Heritage to confirm the 50% discount and was repeatedly put on hold, disconnected several times and then told that someone would call her back to confirm the 50% deal. After waiting more than a week to be called back she reached out to you for help in getting the offer that was originally sent to her. What can we do at this point given that Heritage's only responses seem to be "someone will get back to you?"Thank you for your help *** *** (###-###-####) for *** and George *** (###-###-####)

I will have someone contact you ASAP about this issue and help to get this resolved

We have the representatives offer a discount on services if you wish to keep it for the yearSince this customer is unsatisfied, the rest of the money will be refunded back to the customer's account within 3-business days

Complaint: ***
I am rejecting this response because:My bill of sale (see attached) has no such wording as they allude to in their response. #1: The bill of sales makes no distinction when it comes to the nuances of the SuperSearch capability, as they allude in their response.#2: It implies that when I purchased the Premium subscription, I would have the unfettered capability to "Research your family history using SuperSearch - with more than billion historical records." Those are their words -- not mineThere are no restriction/caveats identified in my bill of sale language. If there were, why would they highlight "Here are a few tips to get the most out of My Heritage"?#3: They (customer support) have admitted to me in their recent conversation that their bill of sale is not explicit i.e., silent, as in not forthcoming in identifying nor setting limits to the premium subscription when it comes to using SuperSearch databases.Bottom line: Their bill of sale for services/data access provided is misleading, as they do not identify up front in their bill of sale order to get access to their data service, one has to purchase a separate subscription. I call this a "bait and switch" tactic. Moreover, they need to change their faulty/misleading contract vehicle so the customer has a clear idea of what are the limitations when signing up for their Premium services. I will not require arbitration, as I have found that highlighting their bait and switch tactics is better served via the social media sector.Sincerely,
*** ***

Complaint: ***
This is NO resolution to my
complaint. MyHeritage is only "passing the buck". Why do I have to follwith Why can't MyHeritage contact their subsidiary and resolve this complaint? Also, not accepted because NO answer was given to my question as to why I was never contacted in the first place
*** ***

I see the customer did speak to our representative who found that there were two accounts that had been set up by the customerOne with the correct email and one with the incorrect spelling of her emailWe did end up getting the incorrect email canceled and refunded the $which takes 3-
business days to processWe also let her know that for the $she was charged through apple, she would have to contact them to get that monthly charge canceled

Please send the exact URLs of each record you want removed so that I can forward them to our privacy team and get this resolved
