Domain registration with Yahoo

I will never use Yahoo's paid service.

5 years ago I registered a .org domain name with them (for 5 years), then I transferred it away to namecheap 4 years ago. So things have been working well. Today I noticed Yahoo charged my credit card for domain renewal. So I called, and the agent said that he would refund me, but it's the customer's responsibility to cancel service with Yahoo.

Right. Yahoo knew all along the domain name wasn't under their control. At best this is a billing mistake, but I think they are just preying on people who are not aware. I should have just called the credit card company to do a charge back. This practice is unethical and it should have been illegal. > :(
