I was looking for some movie download. This website indicated that it had the movie that I wanted.
I clicked on site and read the details about the movie download. It said to pay $4.95 for complete download access for a few days. I understood that it was a just a trial periot. Unfortunately I have never been able to download anything from that webside. Although I paid $4.95 into thier account I have never been able to activate my account worse few days ago i received email from them saying I was charged $39.87 for the full membership and suddenly company name turn from Baydownloads into megadownloadpass which is a pornopage. Do I have a chance to get my money back?
below are emails I received from them.

I have spent over five hours trying to cancel a trail membership. I've tried many billing companies trying to find the billing agency, Meadowlark Limited, and end up each time at a dead end. It's come to the point I cancelled the debit card I used just to stop their automatic subscription.
The site I wanted to access, Warezaccess, didn't have the download they said they did on the original search; and didn't have any procedure to cancel subscription.
All I have found is an address which is: Meadowlark Limited - 11 Church Road, Great Bookham, Surrey, KT23 3PB' if it is any help.

I've also been victimized by Meadowlark Limited, but I was unable to even find what site I supposedly subscribed to. It might have something to do with rapidshare, but I've gotten no information. The site that was charging money out of my debit acct. was CHARGEPATROL. So I went to chargepatrol.com and attempted to cancel my subscription, and what do ya know? I need a member ID, site name, and username, all of which I do not have. I went to the contacts page and after repeated attempts at emails and calls, no reply has been made. That same address (11 church road, great bookham, surrey KY) is on the chargepatrol page . I reported them to Onguard, so if all of you guys did that, there would be a plethera of information for them to investigate on. I will probably still have to cancel this card though.

I canceled trial membership. Parent company Meadowlark Limited proceeded to charge me $93.00/month recurring. The phone numbers provided are disconnected .
My credit union canceled my debit card I used just to stop automatic billing. I wanted to access a utility but vendor didn't have the download link listed in the original search.
Even though I canceled they charged me. My account went into overdraft.

Meadowlark Limited - 11 Church Road, Great Bookham, Surrey, KT23 3PB.

I' was screwed by this website too when I signed with them months ago the same way. I was looking for a rare documentary that I was hope to show my students and baydownloads.com said they did it. So I sign immediately, because I was so surprised to see that! After I paid, but I could not find the file ANYWHERE now. Then I realized that it does not matter what I typed in search box, it will find it a result. Try it out! I have just searched for "Fdjskhfsd" and it shows me this results:

Fdjskhfsd tested

Fdjskhfsd ripped 01-12-2009
added 11.8 hrs ago
408 Kb/s
{ACCiDENT} Fdjskhfsd
added 4.8 days ago

Amazing how they ripped and tested versions of "Fdjskhfsd"! Then they charge me many times although I never allow for this from them. Thief!! I thought I had losted all that money and would no more.

But after reading someplace about CHARGEBACKS, I called MasterCard, told them what happened, and called for the chargeback. They told me they checking this for me so hopefully I got back my money. My friend works for a bank, says that if a company / web site really pulls you out and there is evidence, you are almost guaranteed your money back to you. I hope it is true and good luck to you too my fellow friends!!
