Please do not give this company your credit card information. We've used Lynda.com training services off and on for training since 2014. Each time, our credit card was compromised within a few days of rejoining. We became suspicious after seeing this happen twice and were able to narrow it down from there. If you do have to pay for training, I strongly suggest having your credit card company use a vendor specific tracking code. With this in...

TL;DR: Hacked, numerous accounts stolen, no option for deleting personal info including credit card details. Do you need any other reason for stopping using their services? I don't. Now the story. I cancelled my subscription about 2 years ago. I didn't look for removing my account as I thought that maybe I'll restore the subscription. Time passed until yesterday they sent me email with the following text: "We recently became aware that an...

I cancelled my account back in sept 2015. As far as I was concerned I thought I had done everything reasonable to cancel the account. There were no other options to delete my information On Dec 2017 I received notification from customer care @Lynda.com that there was an unauthorized 3rd party breach on my account. Yes it was hacked into and now the PERP accessed all my personal info credit cards address location and phone. I'm pissed because...

I noticed that I was being charged by lynda.com after canceling my services months earlier. I don't remember signing up again, but it is possible. After finding no way to cancel services on their website, I wrote a message clearly stating that I wanted to cancel. I received a confirmation of receipt of my message and thought that I was done. They continued to bill me for several more months without me noticing. Finally, they canceled my...

I started a free a month trial one month ago. I used the website a few sometimes and tonight supposedly is my final at the free trial. Suddenly i realized that I should cancel my account, when i wanted to log in account/billing section it didn't let me log in by saying: "We are currently experiencing intermittent billing related issues that may impact some features of our website. We are working quickly to resolve the issue. Please try again...

Unresponsive but very willing to take money from your credit card. I literally had to resort to CLOSING my credit card so that they could STOP. Then after waiting forever, I finally got hold of someone and they told me a refund was not possible even though I had not USED the service nor logged into that account in months. I told them I was interested in being a member for another 12 months AFTER all the traveling I was doing. They still didn't...

I never even signed up for this *** and they took money from my account! They should be sued and I think I'll go through the motions of making this happen. I'm not sure if anyone is actually even working at the sight. I have made as many calls and inquiries about this place and found very little in the way of them showing that they are remotely concerned about how they change people's accounts or whether they are taking money from people who are...

Dear Admin, Hi. My name is Sessario Bayu Mangkara. I live in Jakarta and I worked as a freelancer for environmental consulting. I am confusing about my membership status in lynda. I realize that I joined to www.lynda.com in July 2016, because I interested with your promotion program. For this situation, I really shocked to the billing of my credit card. To be honest, I am not have a plan to take a course in www.lynda.com and I seldom to visit...

I had to sign up for Lynda for a college class. I've been getting charged for my account which I have not been using for the past two months, and I haven't received a receipt or email at all. I don't understand how you can keep charging and not send ONE email to remind people-VERY BAD business. They hope people forget and continue to charge them. Will NEVER use this service again just because they can't even keep in touch with their customers....

The trial period expired over the weekend, and I couldn't get to my work computer for the details of the account so I could cancel. They hit my bank for a full year of something I didn't want at 9:24pm Sunday. Waiting to hear from them if I can cancel, and waiting to hear from my bank if the can stop the payment before my account bounces all over the planet. NEVER deal with these guys - the training looked like JR high level, and I could not...
