Hi,
Can anyone tell me how I can unsubscribe to classmates.com? I joined and then tried to go back to the Website, I can't even pull up that website now.
COULD SOMEONE PLEASE HELP?

Classmates had something going on about 10 years ago. It was free and I reconnected with a few old friends. Greed took over and instead of going for an ad driven model like Google, Myspace or Facebook, they opted to go to subscriber based.

And make sure you use a secondary email account on google or yahoo when signing up for any social networking site.

I knew that Classmates was a scam! I get those emails all time but I graduated with about 150 people and most of em are on Facebook so I never paid them any mind.

yep kept getting the same dumb emails, all somebody has to do is click on your name and not check the box that says not to leave their name and you get the email, mind you the person may not even know you just clicking on a name out of curiosity

I finally pulled my profile and unsubscribed because the emails were getting annoying

I've tried unsubscribing many times but keep getting the emails so I just created a rule to dump it into the Deleted folder.

Geeez. How needy can that person be to try to connect to a classmate. Maybe he was stalking a HS classmate? Personally, I think he has no case, ultimately they did not force you to pay. Ya know. I think you have better chance looking up your former classmates in white pages online. Or just simply googling. What a dumb ass.

I recently googled a ex classmate from yrs ago & i contacted her via email. Shes happily married with 2 kids. I told my cousin about her (he knew her too) & now hes contacting her. She didnt really like him much but he thinks different. He has had 2 failed marriages & 3 kids. I have never been married & 0 kids.

They guy may be ignorant, but if the owners of the site lied by saying that people he went to school with were looking for him, when in fact, none of his classmates were looking for him, then he probably has a case for false advertising. This is not an uncommon trick with social networking sites. Perhaps the Courts need to send out a message that this deceptive marketing is not okay. A decision that orders a major site such as classmates.com to refund millions of dollars in subscription fees should do the trick.
