OLD WILDFIRE CHARGES?! How to dispute?

by j1llybeans / September 20, 2016 4:43 PM PDT

To my surprise, I received a $3000 invoice from Google Wildflower this month?! WHAT??

We haven't used the service in well over two years, and to boot, the invoice in dated July 2014 - Google put a stop to Wildfire in March 2014.

Anyone have insights to offer on the matter? How might I go about disputing the charge?

I reached out to Google directly, but was redirected to the collections agency.

The other path.

At 3,000 bucks head to small claims court and get a judgement. You tried the nice way.
