DownloadNova / Unauthorized credit card use

1 InternetUnited States Review updated:
Contact information:

I wanted a video and after signing up, entered my credit card info to pay the 3-day trial fee of $4.95. After entering the site, I not only could not find the file but when I saw the name listed it required you to pay again. I exited the site and sent a cancellation e-mail which is required according to the site. I was willing to allow the 3-day fee but instead I was immediately hit with credit card charges for some company in Spain and then another one hit with the actual fee along with several other charges.

The end resulted in me being hit with $58 in overdraft charges, my utilities shut off because of a bounced check and a total of nearly $200. I only found out when my utilities went out and I called from my cell (my phone was shut off, internet and cable services) and talked to the bank. There were two other charges pending and I had to allow them to go thru even though we knew they were fraudulent charges.

The first charge initiated before I even sent the cancellation notice so this was within a few minutes of me signing up. This site is I beleive a front for a keylogger or straight hack site to get credit card info and barrage you with charges before you can stop them, some of the charges are as low as 2cents, 4cents, 34cents, etc for an international visa charge -- whatever that is.

BEWARE -- this site also uses BAYDOWNLOADS.com similarly so I'm thinking they work hand in hand.

DownloadNova - SCAM / FRAUD
Downloadnova
United Kingdom

Signed up to Downloadnova for trial membership of $4.87 as it offered downloads of games etc. Unfortunately I don't check my bank account often enough and found that in a space of 6 days I was billed by EZ247.COM for a total of £60.26! Search results for this company turned up a GAY PORN website, which I have never accessed - and am never likely to - as I'm an undisputably straight female! I concluded that it could only be Downloadnova that had passed on my card details as it was the only thing I had signed up for online. My bank has since blocked my card on my request and I'm in the process of disputing the payments.
