Avangate.com / Refund

Netherlands Review updated:

I agreed to a trial of software. The confirmation I received of the trial made no mention of an additional charge being made after 7 days if I failed to cancel the trial. Then, 7 days later I find a charge has been made to my credit card for software I was not happy with and did not wish to purchase. At no time was I informed that this charge would be incurred prior to the amount being deducted. I immediately contacted the company, with the order number Avangate order #[protected] yet they said I was not entitled to a refund due to a missed deadline. How is this possible when I had received no correspondence about a deadline?

I am sure that this issue can be easily and speedily resolved and look forward to this happening promptly.

    Dear Jbhlo12,

    According to the email from Media Crawler regarding your refund, they have refused to return the money due to the fact you are asked to agree to their Terms of Service (TOS) before proceeding with the sign up for the 7 day trial. Agreeing to the terms means agreeing to the fact that you will be billed for the lifetime version if you don't cancel the automatic billing option within the 7 day trial period. Here is the link to the TOS: http://www.media-crawler.com/en/tos.html

    Also, in case you missed it, this is their (Media Crawler) reply to you:

    "This 2nd charge has been taken according to TOS you have read and
    accepted to proceed with signup. TOS state that each trial is to be
    extended to the Full Version with a relevant charge taken, unless
    trial is cancelled within 7 days period. Thus if you didn't like the
    service, you were to cancel it in due time. The trial cancellation
    option and amount of the charge coming are also given in TOS. Please
    be reminded that this is a onetime payment and no further charges
    should occur since. In case you need to redownload the software, you
    can do that completely for free. In case you need your account details
    to be reminded, you can send your request as well as address any
    questions on the web service you may have."

    Best regards,

    This correspondence tells it all:

    June 20 2012
    Dear Avangate,
    TODAY IS WEDNESDAY 20 OF JUNE, 2012. IT IS ONE DAY BEFORE 21 OF JUNE.
    AS PER YOUR CONFIRMATION MAIL 13 OF JUNE, I REMIND YOU OF WHAT YOU WROTE:
    Your trial will expire on June 21, 2012. On that date, Avangate will
    automatically attempt to charge your Visa/MasterCard/Eurocard account
    with the full value of this product/service (70.18 AUD), in
    accordance to the http://mediafinderpro.com/thankyou.php Terms &
    Conditions that you agreed with when you placed the trial order.
    Please make sure that enough funds are available in your
    Visa/MasterCard/Eurocard account, so you can continue using Media
    Finder Full Premium Year Subscription without interruption.
    IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR OWN WORDS, THE PROCESS YOU HAVE INITIATED TODAY IS ILLEGAL. I ADVISE YOU TO IMMEDIATELY RESCIND YOUR ACTION, WHICH, AS IS CLEARLY DOCUMENTED BY YOUR OWN CORRESPONDENCE, TRANSGRESSES THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE AGREEMENT I ENTERED INTO WITH MEDIAFINDER.THIS SORT OF ACTION DAMAGES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MEDIAFINDER AND ITS WOULD BE CLIENTS. BECAUSE OF YOUR PREMEMPTORY ACTION, I WILL SURRENDER THAT RELATIONSHIP AND PROCEED TO CANCEL THE BILLING OF $AU 70.18.
    YOURS TRULY
    DR JOHN KENDELL GRAHAM
    The means you provide to execute cancellation does not enable me to do so, It takes me to a page that invites people to make an account with Avangate. I require that this letter serve as formal notification of my cancellation and ask that you confirm this by return mail.I will inform Media finder of this action.
    Thankyou for your attention.

    Dear Avangate Support Team,

    As can be seen in the above, I have just realized that my credit card was charged. Even if I read your T&C again, I understood that you will bill the invoice instead of having the transaction done, it also implies that you may have my credit card details which is a security breach and illegal.

    As I have emailed you my order reference number, appreciate if you could do the necessary. Your immediate action is very much appreciated.

    Dear Sir:
    On November 17, 2012 I sign up with systweak.com for their service. It was a three year contract after using them for seven months, I see no reason to continue their service. My Id 4570445 at a price of $298.00 for the three years. I would like to terminate their services at this time and being fair to both parties return the fair amount of the $298.00 to my credit card.
    Thank you for your time

    This is a scam. They have a recording when you call their number. They have a link that goes nowhere to chat services and another link that goes nowhere for phone support. They do not respond to emails or support tickets they ask you to create. They existto take your money and hope you do not sue them. But then some people end up suing them :)
