dri*AVG Technologies [protected] Mn

My Mastercard shows a charge of $53.49 on April 27 to
dri*AVG Technologies [protected] Mn. I did not authorize this charge and would like it refunded ASAP

Last year you made a number of transactions on my bank account

Dear Sir/Madam

Back in November and December last year you made a number of transactions on my bank account namely.

25/11 34.99
27/11 74.99
2/12 49.99
9/12 66.37

Which were for items not ordered, you repaid the monies on the 16/12 after I contacted you about it.

Now you are trying again to take money from me, this time 44.99GBP.

It is currently pending and may or not be paid, if it is I want an immediate refund.

Tune up not working

AVG Tune Up, is not working, it appears to be frozen secondly this past Monday March 3, 2020 AVG asked to update one of their systems and I agreed, it downloaded asked to restart my computer and ever since I have had nothing but problems with the internet disconnecting and reconnecting constantly and the reconnecting is extremely slow therefore "whatever" AVG did "must" be undone. I pay good money for all of the AVG programs and will not tolerate such poor service and problems just because AVG is trying to push me to purchase upgrading out of date drivers many of which appear to be old duplicates e.g. Microsoft wheel mouse. I would appreciate these issues be remedied a.s.a.p.

Thank You, Al Mackiewicz

I canceled on 3/13/19 this subscription

my credit card account has been charged for renewal for 2020 and since I canceled on 3/31/19 i need you to cancel this renewal subscription for 2020 order#[protected] Merchant of record is Digital River Inc order date 2/12/2020. This charge to my credit card account is unaceptable. Thank you for your help.


I recently purchased a new laptop and was looking for a simple cost effective way to transfer my data to my new computer. I came across this site online https://www.avg.com/en-us/pc-to-pc-transfer, and on 3/9 and 3/10 called the phone # provided [protected]. I found out during my 3+ hours over 2 days that this is supposed to be your premium tech service line. What a joke! I spoke with a total of 6 or 7 different heavily accented people that for the most part were very difficult to understand. I was bounced from prem tech to customer service to sales to tech service back to prem tech, and even tho the greeting at the above phone # say welcome to pc to pc transfer, nobody knew what it was, they couldn't find out anything about it, and only wanted to sell me service subscriptions. Finally I was connected to someone I could mostly understand and after I explained what I wanted, and directed him to the webpage and spending an excessive amount of time on hold was informed that your prem tech people are not informed of or trained to do this service, so he transferred me to another line which I believe was lap links line, and after being on hold for another half hour and not speaking to anyone left my name and number and still have not received a call back.... If this is the way you do business, do not expect any business from me or anyone I know.

I thought I paid for you to protect my computer

On 12-15-19 I paid $25.08 then another charge same day for $19.99. On 2-22-20 my amazon prime account got hacked. An alert popped up to fix problem, but you wanted to charge me again. So I paid for something that did nothing to help me. I want my money back!

So now my complaint is too short for you to resolve... This is another scam!
Shame on you!!!

charge for not ordered avg-vpn software

Hello, I tried solve a problem about a charge made to my VISA credit account with Jhon Layron from AVG Customer care. Because he was not able to find out the charges AVG made I wrote to AVG Jhon Layron an email (see below). Still get no reply when I will get an reply and demanded to refund the amount.
Email sent on 3.02.20 to Jhon Layron:
I refer to the conversation we had a few days ago. The invoice copy you did sent to me is correct and I did received the invoice copy before hand. Again as I informed you I didn't refer to this invoice but I did referred to a charge made by AVG of GBP 64.99 to my credit card A/c (see enclosed). I checked up the charge internal and found out that AVG offered me to use the AVG-VPN SW to protect my computer. They gave me free of charge a trial period of 60 days. I agreed to try it but within day I cancelled the use of VPN SW because I think it is too expensive for a person like me which use the Computer private. Enclosed you find a copy of the AVG offer for the 60 days trial period. I noticed that I have wrote my email address wrong; [protected]@outlokk.com on the 60 days trial offer. This may the reason you could not find the invoice in your AVG files. I haven't ordered this VPN SW therefore I do not agree that you charge me for it. I demand to refund the amount soonest possible and let me know when you do it. If I do not hear from you within a few days I will take matter further.

This FAKE company is a scammer. They took $457 via photo of my check on my laptop. Come to find out I found a list of approximately 50 people who had issues with this fake company. They logged into my laptop, closed down everything, gave me an 877 number to call to help unlock my laptop. After 8 pages of notes, phone #"a & names it was SCAM. FILE COMPLAINT WITH FTC.

today on 21 January 2020, I bought your antivirus which was supposed to be paid a total of $36.36. As soon as I got charged that money, an other charge of $91.51 with the name of .dri*AVG TECHNOLOGIES minnetonka MN appeared, when I called you, you said that you don't know who took that money!However remember that this action was associated with your services.So my debit card ending by 2481 got overcharged and I need to be refunded.Otherwise this seems like robbery. my email address is: [protected]@gmail.com

I have no idea

This company charged my mother on a credit card after she was deceased. I called them and told them she could not have authorized it because she was dead, and they told me that she only had 30 days to return it. As executor of her will, I received the charge after that, and I don't even know what it was for. I told them she would not have been aware of the purchase because she was dead (and had been for many months) and they said they still would not refund the purchase. Do not buy anything from this company.


Personal credit card was charged for 106.38 twice on 12/13 and then one credit for 106.38 was run on 12/14. I have not placed any orders or purchased any service from you. Please credit my credit card immediately. Please email me if you need any additional information.

I know I haven't or needed to purchase anything 2019, so how can you do this, please explain and refund my money back from my account you debited. Anxiously await your response.
