Additional Complaint Information

LiveCareer came to BBB's attention in January 2011. A review of the company's file was done in August 2015. Complaints on file concern consumers being unaware when they paid for a 14-day trial that they would be charged a recurring monthly fee for access to the company's services. Complaints also concern consumers being charged after they have canceled or deleted their membership.

When asked to review the concerns regarding consumers memberships, cancelation policy, and subscription confirmations, LiveCareer stated the following:

Our website clearly and conspicuously states our terms on various pages in the purchase process. For example, when the consumer is given a choice between our different products, the terms of the subscription are in bullet points next to their selection, and again on the payment page.
Consumers receive an email confirming their subscriptions as soon as they complete their purchase. The confirmation email states: "Your subscription begins immediately and renews automatically" followed by the corresponding date and purchase price.

Our cancellation policy, which is clearly stated in Section 35 of our Terms of Use states: "You may cancel or suspend your service by going to the home page under My Accounts and My Settings. LiveCareer does not guarantee refunds." A user can cancel at any time by following these instructions. Customers may also cancel via telephone, LifeChat, or email. LifeChat hours are from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. EST Monday to Friday, 9:00A.M. to 6:00 P.M. EST on Saturdays, and 11:00 A.M. to 7 P.M. EST on Sundays.

BBB advises consumers read the Cancellation Policy and the Terms of service to fully understand what they are agreeing to.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
