Sneaky apps seemingly free to download are tricking thousands of dollars out of unsuspecting consumers.  It happens with at least 14 apps identified that either mislead people into signing up for subscriptions that sometimes cost upwards of $3,400.  In fact, one app subscription I found in the Apple App Store called Crazy Ringtone charges as much as $49 per week and in many cases, people who clicked to download thinking it is free.  Simply deleting an app won’t stop your credit card from getting charged.  Following these easy guidelines can cancel app subscriptions that are charging astronomical fees or the ones that you never intended to subscribe.
