Complaint Rating:  91 % with 92 votes
I have searching for some material of my lessons. And I signed up for www.download-provider.com. But after I payed for USD4.87, I could't find the files I have ever found. I was cheated. After 3days, they charges me USD39.73+39.64. It is totally fraud. I feel angry and helpless. I think I should bring a lawsuit angainst them and get my money back. But I don't know how. Can anybody help me??

I was wondering that the download-provider.com was a fake site. That's why I searched the site address and see whether there was complain re that site...It's under my expectation that the site is fake.

Re the unauthorized debit from your credit card, it may not worth to take the legal action. You may ring your credit card provider(i.e. the bank) and telling them you have experienced some fraud on the card. I don't know where you are, if you are in Australia, you will not be liable for the authorized transaction.

In one word, ring your credit provider, they will fix the problem for you.

Download-provider is completely fraud.

Just now I have paid the amount but they didn't provide me any any activation code. Instead they have charged from me for 3 different xxx sites.

I too signed up at DP to obtain a torrent they said they had. After paying mny $4.87 I was instantly sent to a porn site. Backtracking, I discovered that the torrent wasn't even available. I cancelled immediately and emailed about getting the initial charge back. The return email contained a toll free number where I was able to get a refund. We shall see.

I will follow up with my bank if it is not fortrhcoming. I encourage you to do the same. All my expeiences with online purchase problems havd been rewolved in my favor. The charges have been reversed. It is a sad and frustrating part of online transactions!

I absolutely agree with the comments above! Download-provider.com are cheats! I took the 3 day trial but noticed that the transaction details were not sent by email to me as is the case with decent sites so when I tried to cancel using their credit merchant (securedatavalidation.com) they could not trace my details even with the credit card number! 5 emails to Download-Provider = 0 replies. I was re-billed for £27 as I suspected. Now I have asked my credit supplier to cancel my card and dispute the charge.

DOWNLOAD-PROVIDER ARE CHEATS AND LIARS - THEIR SERVERS DO NOT HAVE EVERYTHING YOU ARE LOOKING FOR, THEY JUST SAY THAT BEFORE YOU SIGN UP!
ALSO IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CANCEL AND THEY WILL RE-BILL!

DO NOT USE THEM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

Thanks for the heads up. I have been tempted to sign up as well for some pass4sure stuff they claimed to have. I held off and thanks to your posts my gut feelings are confirmed. I will NOT sign up. As for the people who have I would contact your credit card company and make a fraud complaint.

I got cheated from this stupid website. I though I find what I was looking for, but not. I just talk to my bank provider after I read this post. They help me stop the transaction for 6 months to see they will charge me or not. If the thing go worse, I will have to cancel my bank account and apply for a new one. I probably will have to do it soon or later.
Thanks for the head up. Now it change the way I think of online purchase.

I too was frauded by this webside, and I ended up subscribing for something completly different. I have canceled my account at the customersupporthelp.com, but before that I called my bank and they canceled my visa-card.

I was just wondering, what happens if they keep billing my canceled card? Is is going to stock up into a vaste sum? Can they bill me in any other way?

Please I'd really like to know, send me a email.

I was duped by this site tonight as well. I didn't have much trouble canceling the two porn sites they signed me up for... i seem to have been able to cancel the discount video whatever and something called "bookmark, " but i only got email verification from discount video. then after about an hour of searching and dead-ends, i finally found a cancel screen for the actual download-providers site. i entered my information into it to be canceled, but didn't receive any kind of email or even a "canceled" message on the screen - i just got a time and a date, which happens to be the end of my 3-day trial, so here's hoping. i also sent an email through the "support" screen on download-providers.com, but who knows if that will do me any good. i'll eat the $4.87 and the $1 trial charges for the other two sites, that's my fault for being an idiot and signing up for this, but if they try to bill my card further, i'll get the bank to refuse the charge and cancel my card.

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY DOWNLOAD-PROVIDER.COM! IT IS A SCAM!!!

The billing that was taking out was from this web sites: Adult download pass, and Mega download pass. I have never sign up to either of these sites so they are connected some how to download provider. And also beware of warezaccess also know as BayDownloads.com. They are on this complaintboard (address below.)

Be carful with your credit cards don't be stupid like me it wasn't alot of money but I had to cancel my card and than apply for a new one it is a big hassle because of these jerks.

I did the same just now.
I just bought my self a whole lot of problems.

I called my bank and cancelled my credit card.
It wont stop transactions already made, but it will prevent them from continuing.

The bank advised me to go tot he police if this sites customer support don't answer my ticket.

I was really stupid and paid download-provider.com for the alleged $4.87 3-day trial via credit card because they claimed to have some software I was looking for. I no sooner paid than was redirected to an unrelated porn site--and no sign of the files I was paying to download.

I immediately became suspicious and within 10 minutes called my credit card provider. My provider confirmed that the $4.87 debit was pending AND that several subsequent $1 "test" debits had already been made against my account by companies I never heard of. My bank said that it clearly looked like fraud and that my only recourse was to cancel my card immediately, which I did. Whew!

download-provider.com IS A FRAUD.

I was conned by this site in November, whilst searching for a font.
I registered with "them" and received welcome emails from discountvideopass.com, charge patrol and meadowlark (2) I cancelled immediatley and was sent a confirmation email from support@customersupporthelp.com ( same adressee as the welcome emails) thanking me for being a member etc., etc. and that my membership was cancelled.
interestingly, this email will not print!!! (system error when I try) and a hard copy needed by my CC company. I had to foreward it to myself to get it to print.
I have since been billed by receive-help.com and supportbeast.com for £27.66 each time. (nice wholesome sites, not)
My CC company is treating this as a disputed payment and are trying to get the above named to refund the charges, I wish them every success but will not be holding my breath.
A class action anyone?
Avoid D-P like the plague!

Does anyone know if the billing will stop if you just cancel the pornography subscriptions? I cant find anywhere to directly cancel subscription to www.downloadprovider.com.

Do not sign up for DownloadProvider, it is a complete scam. If you have, do as i have and call your bank, cancel atm/credit card and watch closely at activity.

I have cancel my subscription buy email with DP but recieved nothing to verify that they recieved it so my guess is they are going to bill untill you cancel your card. Sorry about the bad news I had to cancel mine to it is the only safe way to go.

It was my bank's impression that within minutes of the initial transaction download-provider.com had either shared or sold my credit card info to at least two other entities which immediately made "test" debits of $1 each against my account to confirm that the pilfered info was valid. My bank said that since multiple entities were now abusing my card, there was nothing to do but close the account and reissue a new card.

As soon as I realized I'd been rooked I did fill out some sort of cancellation form offered by download-provider.com, but I never heard back from them and I presume it didn't mean squat. They're unabashed crooks.
