After successfully using the free version of ChatGPT, I paid for a plus subscription for my Google account, which I used to normally log into the service. About a week later, I lost my subscription. After not receiving a response for a couple of weeks, I decided to delete the account. I thought it might be a problem associated with the Google account and not with OpenAI’s services, so I decided to use another email account and re-register as an OpenAI user, instead of using a Microsoft or Google account, and I paid again. But to my surprise, the new account with a plus subscription is much more limited than the free version that you can use with your Google account, and you have to pay in order to use the API.
Honestly, I feel completely scammed. I have paid twice in less than fifteen days and I cannot use the API that I previously used for free. I have to acquire a new phone number and a new account, in addition to having lost money.
