My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California
Let me start by saying this is an embarrasing story.
So last night I was on a website that I had not used in years. To register for the website I had to provide credit card details, so I used a bank account(two years ago) in order to gain access to the site. When I got on the site last night, I used a feature that required money(which I mistook for a free service). This morning I came to find that the website wanted to charge me 650$ for the service. They already had the information that my card was expired, but still allowed me to use the service, even though my card was 2 years expired. Should I be held liable, even though you need a card to use the site in the first place, and they knew that my card was invalid(and in fact the account was closed a year ago in May.)? I was unaware that I was even being charged, and they knew my card was invalid anyway... Shouldn't I have been blocked from using the service in the first place? Thank you in advance
