Cleverbridge Cleverbridge company

I guess they are the company who provides the subscription for winzip suites and winzip tool.

I have been trying to cancel 3 of the subscriptions I have and when I hit cancel the process stops.

Ii want to speak to a human who can help me and all they have are stupid recordings. I found one number, it said it speel and clicked off. This company needs to improve. I am sure you have received a lot of complaints.

Cleverbridge Cleverbridge Cbackup Hard Drive Backup Service with 1TB Storage -- Annual Subscription

cbackup service – cancelled subscription same morning that it was started on 2 Nov 2023.

This hard drive backup service is fraudulent -- it does not maintain a login or connection for more than a few seconds or up to a minute at the most, which is unacceptable. After many repeated backup attempts, the service backed up less than 2 GB of my 1000 GB C-Drive (which was less than 0.2% of my paid subscription for 1TB of storage), which is also unacceptable. And then the service began blocking attempts to continue with backing up the C-Drive -- this is completely unacceptable. I am disputing payment for this subscription through my VISA card company, because the actual backup service is so very far below the level that is claimed by the Cleverbridge company, that it is actually fraud.

Cleverbridge Unauthorized automatic payment

I did not subscribe to any of your services. However, I was charged with subscription fee. The purchased item is "cleverbridge GmbH | (API call) Item #243076" that costs

$0.00 USD. At the end, the bill I was charged is $29.70 USD.

Either show me the proof that I have signed up for your services or whatsoever, or refund my money. As simple as that.

Cleverbridge Parallels

I have used this Mac emulation software for several years. In April 2022 the software would not boot and several attempts to resolve the problem with their technical support was unsuccessful. It was the third time this software crashed requiring a reinstall. Because of this I abandoned the software and began using a windows machine to run my software. On August 30 2022 Cleverbrige placed a $52.74 renewal charge to my credit card which they had on file from a prior renewal without my knowledge. When I became aware of this on October 5th I contacted them regarding a refund and to cancel any future charges. In spite of the fact that I am not using their software and that I had requested a refund they have not returned the funds to me due to a "strict 30 day refund policy". Again I did not authorize them to place this charge and I asked for the fund shortly after their ridiculous 30 day refund policy. In my last communication to them I have threatened them wil local small claims court and will pursue this as a last resort for the charge + court costs.

Desired outcome: A refund of the charge placed to my card.

Cleverbridge CCleaner/Cleverbridge

I was misrepresented by the company. I ordered their service for 2 computers.

The 1 year subscription for 2 computers was supposed to be $ 44.95

On 11-29-22 Cleverbridge took out $ 109.95 from my checking account.

On 12-15-22 Cleverbridge took out another $ 34.99 from my account.

On 12-19-22 Cleverbridge credited my account $ 40.00.

On 12-28-22 CBI Ccleaner took $ 49.95 out of my account.

Overall I ended up paying $ 154.89 for a product that was supposed to have been $ 44.95. This is in a family Trust account. I would like to cancel everything that I purchased and get a full refund. I do not think they are a reputable company and I feel like they have stolen money from my Family Trust.

Desired outcome: I would like a full refund and cancel all subscriptions. Frankie & Renee ONeal,[protected] phone [protected]

Cleverbridge Complaint

I purchased a parallels application for CHF 74.99 thinking that it was the offer for the prolongation of my current abonnement. It was charged on the on the 19.10.22 on my credit card... 2913.

on 17.11.22 a prolongation of my abonnement was automatically charged on my credit card for CHF 59.99.

Same days later I received the information that it wasn't possible to deliver the purchase dated on 19.10.22 mentioning an error.

I think that I had wrong interpreted the first offer and that the price of CHF 74.99 should be returned

Cleverbridge WinZip

I made a purchase, on July 8, 2022, reference number [protected], Invoice Number BKD-[protected] for WinZip, but I never received any codes or anything to get it to work on my computer. My computer is still telling me that I need to renew my WinZip, so it was a scam! You took our money for nothing. I will be speaking to our lawyer about this problem ASAP. This is not a good business practice. I expect to see a refund of our money as soon as possible if you do not wish to see this negative outcome.

Desired outcome: I want our money back, refunded ASAP.

Cleverbridge Reject invoice, didn't order cc cleaner

I did not reorder CCleaner in spite of all your reminders, since I have not used your product for a long time.

So as far as I am concerned since I did not renew, we have no business anymore

Cleverbridge Decline of method of payment

I have been buying through cleverbridge software from different companies for many years now. I have never had a problem. I couldn't understand decline of method of payment, so I contacted my bank and they said that there are no requests for payment. After several attempts to purchase a product from Ashampoo software, I finally found out that it had nothing to do with payment but with our identity. I provided the information they asked for and still received an email stating Decline of method of payment. I am not very happy about this. I almost feel as though they are punishing me because I questioned their methods. I just want to buy the software I asked for, if they cannot provide that then the companies that use them should seek other avenues of receiving payment for their software.

Desired outcome: I just want to buy software and they are preventing me from doing so.

Cleverbridge Avira anti-virus

My wells fargo bank account was charged $106.24 without any prior notification from cleverbridge inc. I believe this company is involved in deceptive billing. They should have a company wide policy of notifying prospective customers of any upcoming charges which would allow for the customer to budget for the added expenses. This company should not be allowed to continue in this deceptive practice.

Desired outcome: REFUND
