    Earthlink C&D

    Any lawyers out there?

    I received a cease and desist letter from Earthlink today claiming that I have signed up for their dial up service 6 times in the last 2 weeks and that I am forbidden to do it again.

    There are claims in the letter that they can sue me for monetary damages right now, but they won't unless I do it again.

    Is this true? Can they do this? All six signups were with different names/credit cards! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I'm not a lawyer, but if I was served a Cease and Desist order, I would surely stop signing up, no questions asked.

    ... my 2 cents.

    Would you have done it in person?

    I think you should sign up just one more time. Just to call their bluff.

    I don't think you should sign up again even though I don't understand how they can threaten you. Did you pay for the service 6 times? If you paid for the service 6 times then they can't threaten you at all. Tell them to stop threatenting you.

    If the offer says "New Customers Only" does that count? Is "New Customers Only" a legally binding thingy?

    I believe in the T&C of Earthlink it says you can only sign up for a free trial once a year, so ya, what you did would be illegal.

    It MIGHT have been AOL though, I dunno.

    Actually yes. Have you never gone back multiple times to a store that had a one per person sale? Even maybe the next day or a few days later if the sale is a week long?

    I've never had a letter from target telling me to stop buying sale milk. These F*ers are serious.

    Heh, I was going to say that it's sort of like taking more than one free sample from the free sample table.

    I sometimes take 2 or maybe even 3, but usually one. Depends on if there's someone watching, how many there are left, and if anyone would really care.
