    This is the ultimate Adobe support horror story

    ericr45905310

      Yesterday I received an email stating my "trial was ending."

       

      I don't have a trial.

       

      I've been a regularly paying customer of Adobe for a year!

       

      So I chatted into support (it was a Saturday) just to make sure everything was okay.

       

      Big mistake.

       

      It took more than a two hours in chat, handed off to multiple people, they misunderstood the question I had and began giving "trial notfication" file change advice which I didn't need, this was unrelated.

       

      Then, they cancelled my live subscription and then blamed me for it.  I kid you not, read the transcript below.

       

      It ended with me assuming my Adobe account got hacked, but then the Adobe Twitter support (great people, btw), reviewed it and confirmed that the Indian agent is the one who did it, I was not hacked.

       

      I ended up leaving everything cancelled, as I no longer trust Adobe, and further I AM SELLING MY ADOBE STOCK on Tuesday.

       

      Talk about a total fail.  If you do not learn from this, Adobe, there is truly no hope for your publicly traded corporation.

       

      Here's the transcript:

      2:28:05 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      As per my understanding you have an active subscription under your account and still the application is showing that you are eligible for trial mode only?

      2:28:09 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      Am I right?

      2:28:19 PM

      Thanks a lot!

      2:30:34 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I just want to make sure my subscription is still ok and live.

      2:30:36 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      Ok Eric! In order to fix this issue we need to rename and delete a few Adobe folders.

      2:30:36 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      2:31:02 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I don't have Photoshop on this computer, I am away.

      2:31:21 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Why is this happening? I don't understand. You can see in my account that I pay!

      2:31:26 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      Yes you do have an active subscription of Creative Cloud Photography plan (one-year)

      2:31:33 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      You just charged me a few days ago.

      2:31:37 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      Please do not worry

      2:31:49 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Then why this nonsense?

      2:32:12 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      Its just a technical issue that happens when some of the sign in logs gets messed up due to windows update or some other installations.

      2:32:53 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Well I am not on my main computer with Photoshop, so you have to fix it on your end or whatever. I pay!

      2:33:53 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I wasn't trying to log in, I just got an EMAIL.

      The email says:

      2:34:20 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      "Your trial has ended. But the creativity doesn’t have to."

      2:35:04 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      So the application is not showing Trial mode but there is an email?

      2:35:45 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      No, as I already said, I am AWAY. I am not trying to use Photoshop, I just received an email. It says: 'Your trial has ended. But the creativity doesn’t have to.'

      2:36:17 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I fixed the trial mode error many months ago, this is diffferent!

      2:36:43 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:



      Ok,

      2:37:03 PM

      Ravindra Singh Saini:

      First of all, this plan was cancelled in middle of the contract.

      4:03:48 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I did not cancel it!

      4:03:56 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      You contacted us to cancel that on 14 Jan 2018

      4:04:04 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Your system has some kind of malfunction.

      4:04:10 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I DID NO SUCH THING !

      4:04:14 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Saying that you are moving to other plan.

      4:04:25 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Does someone have my login data? Is someone impersonating me?

      4:04:45 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I did not! Have not been in touch with Adobe for nearly a year!

      4:05:16 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Someone must be impersonating me!

      4:05:26 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I am happy with the plan I had.

      4:05:29 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      We cancelled your plan with refund of current month, which will be credited to your registered payment medium within 5-7 business days.

      4:06:22 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I don't want any refund, I want my plan, and clearly I need to change my password, yes? Did the impersonator contact by internet or phone?

      4:06:53 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Eric, we have cancelled it on your request.

      4:07:31 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      IT WAS NOT MY REQUEST! I don't want it cancelled, how did that person contact, was it through the site?

      4:07:26 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      It can't be re-started now, you will receive refund for paid money and if you wish to buy again, I can help.

      4:07:40 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Eric,[] -this is your account.

      4:07:47 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Oh, this is like being in Hell.

      4:07:51 PM

      Kewalprakash:

      4:08:05 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I never contacted to cancel or change any plans!

      4:08:15 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Yes, I will log in and how do I change the password?

      4:08:19 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Somebody from your end contacted us to cancel without any cancellation fee and with refund.

      4:08:25 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      And turn on 2 factor id?

      4:08:23 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      We did the same.

      4:08:30 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      What's that?

      4:08:47 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Someone has definitely hacked into my account then, this must be reported.

      4:09:09 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      To log in, I should receive a code by Text.

      4:09:20 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      How do I change my password please?

      4:09:23 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I was hacked.

      4:10:15 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      How do I change my password please?

      4:10:27 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      https://helpx.adobe.com/manage-account/using/change-or-reset-password.html

      4:10:36 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Here is the link for that.

      4:10:48 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Kindly follow that and change password.

      4:11:00 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Would you like me to assist you further?

      4:12:24 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Thanks, please report that MY ACCOUNT WAS HACKED. Adobe passwords are clearly not secure.

      4:13:55 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I have now changed the password.

      4:14:01 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Thank you.

      4:14:04 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Would you like me to assist you further?

      4:14:14 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Can you provide more information about this person who contacted you? What method did they use?

      4:14:19 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      I don't have that.

      4:14:48 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      Why would someone contact you, pretend to be me, and tell you to cancel?

      4:15:04 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      What would they gain?

      4:15:09 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Eric, that should be resolved at your end don't you think so.

      4:15:17 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      We do not know.

      4:15:30 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      We are customer support.

      4:15:42 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      You can confirm with your family and friends.

      4:16:31 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      I don't believe you. I believe your system malfunctioned and you spontaneously cancelled a perfectly good paying account. None of my family or friends has access to anything of mine. I am filing a complaint with the United States Federal Trade Commission and we'll solve this.

      4:17:15 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      You should at least escalate this to YOUR LEGAL DEPARTMENT.

      4:17:22 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Okay, I have updated you with exact details and information.

      4:17:27 PM

      Kewalprakash:



      Would you like me to assist you further?

      4:17:56 PM

      Eric Resnick:



      You took more than 2 hours to discover that your own system has failed. Good job. Goodbye.

       

       

      End of chat

       

       

      I later contacted Adobe Twitter support, who apologized, offered a discount to come back, confirmed a refund was on the way, and assured me the agent in the chat is the one who cancelled my subscription!    I mean, can you believe that?  Crazy. 

       

      Adobe: you MUST get rid of the outsourced support.  And I mean NOW.  They will be the destruction of your company.

            Thanks for posting this. I've been considering purchasing adobe and actually was trying to search threads for "can I get the discounted rate for my daughter who is under 13". I've read conflicting responses from admins and really confused, probably more now that I read your post. I'm kinda disappointed and was looking forward to using this software but may look elsewhere. Anyways thanks again for your response.
