I am fairly new to online downloading and purchases. i wanted to download Limewire to my computer, since I'd purchased an MP3 player for my son. I wanted him to be able to download music to it. As I was trying to do so, up pops this message stating for $ 49.90, iI could have 'lifetime unlimited access 'to download music and video. So, I say 'OK' and click 'yes'. Then in jumps Clickbank, I give them my info and make the payment. They direct me to something called members area and give me a username and password, which were unusable. Nothing happened when I tried to use those numbers. I later found out from more computer savvy friends that Limewire is a FREE service. When I checked out 'the [redacted]' site, I found out this was a common practice by Clickbank. I e-mailed several rather nastily worded, yet polite, emails to support@thememberarea. After 2 or 3 e-mails, clickbank sent me an e-mail telling me how to get a refund. I got an e-mail today saying my $ 49.90 would be returned. i haven't checked my bank account yet today, but of course it may take ' up to 5 business days' to return the money. it took them like, 30 seconds to take the money, but I'll have to wait 5 days to get it back. What I have learned is READ things closely before you press'yes' or 'ok'. These outside companies somehow access legitimate sites and steal from you. I was lucky. They 'say' they will give me back my money. others haven't been so fortunate. Will update, If the cash doesn't 'reappear'.

    rodger adair This is my third email to clickbank so far no reply. About 5 weeks ago i paid $59 for a download for ED . but becaue of the fact that when i ordred your advertising swamped the screen and i couldnt find out how to pay. . When i did pay using paypal i couldnt find out where to download. I inadvertantly paid again . still no download. Could you please remit to my paypal a/c the econd payment and make avaiable the download. . It really stinks to have to tell you about the problem so much.. I will tell the Choice Magazine and put it on facebook and twitter if I dont here back soon.

    Thank you
