HELP! Continued billing despite lack of consent

I purchased a SIM for my iPad during a two week visit to US earlier this year at an AT&T store in NY.

I have done this before and the account expires after 30 days and that is that.

This time I am billed a renewal charge every month without having consented to this.

The problem is there does not seem to be any way I can access the acount and ge any information about it either.

AT&T says it does not recognize my email either.

How can I:

1) stop the monthly charges?

2) access my account?

 

Could it be that the stire staff has fraundently added a different name and number to the account and I am in fact paying for someone elses wireless usage? I have now been excess charged for five months. Can I use my ICCID to stop this?

Now I have figured it out but I am confused.

Why am I being billed $25 every month by AT&T Customer Care?

I don't even have an AT&T account.

The billing comes from AT&T Data and is exactly $25 every month.

I never signed up for automatic billing. The SIM I purchased I paid for with AMEX and these "automatic billings" are being charged to my VISA. I need an email address to someone who can do something to find out what is going on.

When you initiated the service, it was as an auto-renewal. I'm sorry this was not made clear when you started the service.

Still confused how the billing is charging my VISA? I signed up with my AMEX. The VISA card was never involved

Is the Visa linked to your iTunes account?  I don't think that is it but you never know.  I would dispute the charge with the credit card company.   it will get the issue looked into especially if you did not sign up with the Visa.
