BayDownload.comOnline fraud

This site is fraudulent in almost every way. I agreed to a 5 dollar charge to download an album they claimed to have available. Then as soon as I paid, they no longer have it. Or anything else their website claims to have. Then 3 days later my account is charged with $40. I called the number that showed up on my transaction history (because there is no way to contact them on their site except by email, that they don't respond to) and apparently they had me down for a subscription to an adult magazine. Holy hell, what utter thievery! They said they would refund everything and take my name off the subscription, but we'll see if I don't have to take further action with my bank. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE!

    The baydownload web is pure fraud, i wanted to download ebook, and they asked me to pay $4.87 promotional package and as soon i paid the book was not available from that moment and they redirected me to adult website.
    I didn't know about further consequences, but they are true fraud.

    stay away

    hello from Italy,
    I am just another victim of BayDownload.com
    I realized it was fraud as soon as I could not get the ebook download I paid the 4$87 3-day trial fee for .
    Ad I was charged two more unwanted subscriptions to two more porn websites .
    I was lucky I had paid with my debit card : I emptied it immedeately and asked my bank for a new one, so they are not going to steal any more money from me .

    I tried to get memberships cancellation anyway but it does not work .
    Pay attention to any unwanted download while waiting for their customerhelp website page .

    Did you denounce them to the police ?

    Im from France, same thing here !

    The thing is that they dont have any torrent at all, it is just a cover site for megadownloadpass.com, a network of adult sites.

    To avoid paying more than 4, 87$ try to cancel your membership as soon as possible at www.helpfulfolks.com (the site ou sign up to through baydownloads is megadownloadpass). If you dont do that 24 hours before the end of the three day trial, you ll have to pay 39, 95$ for the next month !

    If you want to get revenge, go to :
    Variel Streen Solutions Ltd. - 30 Elm Park Terrace, Shotley Bridge, Consett. County Durham DH8 0NA, United Kingdom

    Good luck !

    These people are scammers. You will NEVER get someone to answer the phone. You will NOT be able to cancel They will take money out of your account weekly. They have taken out $39.95 twice a week for the past month. All the while I was trying to cancel. They sent me an email stating it has been cancelled. The ext day and 2 more times after that they took out money. I canceled my card so no more now. But DO NOT ever do business with this company. they are ### and crooks and belong in prison.

    they're still up and running until now! how come no one is putting them down yet like have them over to the right law enforcement authority or something? it's always a good thing to do research of a site first before giving it a go signal! these things should be obliterated so no more will be scammed!

    Copied directly from the website where creditcard information is to be entered.

    "Today's charge is USD 4.87 3-day trial, recurs @ 39.73 every 30days. It will discreetly appear on your statement as ezhelp4all.com [protected] ."

    If you'd bothered to READ before clicking away, you'd have known this.

    i cancelled the same thing the same day i got it-had to cancel 3 sites.They still took 58 pound from my account 3 days later.I double checked, and all 3 sites were cancelled when i did it.Are robbers.have sent to visa to sort out, and e-mailed them 3 times and they haven't replied, so obvious something dodgy going on.And i did read all the small print b4 i did it, but didn't count for much!Stay away from anything to do with ezhelp4all-they run lots of porno sites, and get people to register for files that they don't have.Is an obvious scam, but i just don't understand how these people can keep doing it.Have read many complaints about the same thing from this site...megadownloadpass, bookmark and Discount Video Pass are the ones i got

    Hi,
    Same here...I freshly signed up the 3$ subscription and they sent me 3 emails for porn sites with recuiring subscriptio...no way dude...I am trying to contact them all to cancel my subcription..From all that I read here they seem to send you different subscription...Mines where :

    www.moviebox.com apparently this ones are reachable..I got in touch earlier on through chat and got confused because I thought it was BayDownload.com

    http://www.fastdownloadarchive.com (when I go this one it tells me my loggin doesn't exist though I receive one by mail?!!)

    http://www.cupidcams.com/ this one says that there are no monthly fees and that I will be charged only If I purchase something on the web site...but I went there : https://secure.netbilling.com/gw/native/selfservice1.2 to sign off anyway...I will see what the story is.

    My question is did any of you got access to baydownload proper? If yes can you contact them?

    They never charged me any extra 40$ because I reacted right away, though they did charge me extra 4$ for every trial that I never requested. You have to contact every single one of the customer services, online payment method, and websites right away, and let them know that you don´t want any recuring bill from them. The catch is that if you don't the consent is that you agree to be charged every month for each one of thos trials.

    Good luck!!

    Thank god I didn't have to cancel my card. If this happen don't forget your right for a chargeback. The beauty of it is that your bank may charge those companies for any extra fees. :-)
