SKYPE is running a racket - couldn't sign in and couldn't cancel subscription renewal done without warning.

GetHuman-pmlplane's customer service issue with Skype from May 2018

Help with my Skype issue
The issue in GetHuman-pmlplane's own words
Tried to cancel auto renewal of SKYE phone number never even used. Program would not let me sign in for days. Finally found a blog which said i needed to install a major update to replace the old one. ... I have been unable to sign in to SKYPE for a long time even though I changed my password repeatedly and used different E-mail addresses to try to resolve the problem. I FINALLY discovered TODAY via a Blog I found on Google that it needed a MAJOR UPDATE first - even though no such notice was ever sent out. I even found this page via Google only. I was charged an automatic renewal for my Skype phone number on ** MAY - with no advanced warning - even though this is something I have never even used. I TRIED for DAYS to sign in to cancel right away starting on the renewal date of transaction ** MAY - I only succeeded ONE TIME on ** MAY (no idea why it worked ONCE and never again) and never again until today ** MAY. I also could never contact ANY HELP from SKYPE to resolve this issue. I removed my credit card information on ** MAY while the charge was still "pending" and canceled the subscription renewal but was advised it would only cancel NEXT YEAR on ** MAY **** - for something I have never used and got no warning of this renewal or of the program update. But now I see that the charge was manually entered on ** MAY on my credit card account - which I am now disputing since I cannot get any help or relief from SKYPE. I am appalled that the auto renewal gave NO heads up and feels like TRAP with no out. If I cannot get this charge removed, I will remove SKYPE altogether for both me and my husband and post my experience Facebook, etc. As several friends mentioned while I tried to deal with this for nearly * weeks, no one needs Skype any longer since FB messaging and other programs accomplish all that is needed without having to sign in.
I will use social media to the max if this is not resolved. This felt like a trap and scam - no warning of auto renewal and unable to cancel on same day due to their unannounced major program change.
I only want the $** credited back to my credit card - which I removed from my SKYPE account while trying to stop the pending charge since I had NO WAY to CONTACT them. SKYPE give NO customer service. I saw requests for * items on the main page here but saw no way to provide those and not sure they should be given if it would show publicly: Items Needed: Name, Billing address, Email Address * Password --- who will see this? Why would I give out my password to anyone, anyway?
We have had SKYPE for many years but I am sure ready to dump and tell the world why.
I may try to re-list the credit card on my account in case that is holding up crediting back the $**. They also have my E-mail address and SHOULD use that to communicate - but nothing but crickets from them so far.
