Dri Spyhunter / unauthorized charge on my credit card

BEWARE - An unauthorized charge appeared on my Capital One Mastercard account for $29.99. When I called I was transferred to an overseas call center and harassed. The customer service representative insisted that I provide my email address (which I refused). When I requested a supervisor, she placed me on HOLD for a long time with LOUD classical music blaring. The guy that got on the phone was clearly not a supervisor and hung up on me. On the third call I reached a person who told me that I ordered computer virus protection - curious since I only use Norton Anitvirus products. WHAT A NIGHTMARE! I ended up disputing the charge with my credit card company.

    Dri Spyhunter - Unauthorized credit card charge
    United States

    I purchased this for one year only and am very dissapointed with their product. I have received no notice of any kind from them and they have charged my account again. My credit card company has been notified and a dispute is in action. They will be blocked from every using my card again.

    I was given a notice that SpyHunter was about to charge me $29.99, taken from my debit card, but did not. This is only six months since I bought the software, for which I spent $30 back in the Spring. I did not actively authorize the $29.99 charge, and this charge incurred a $29 ISF fee from the bank because I did not have a way to contact them to stop the charge. I can see $30 a year for a subscripton to fight viruses, but $60 a year is a bit much. They should not have charged me a second time in 6 months! I want my $29.99 back, plus reimbursement for the $39 ISF charge!

    I have also receieved such an unauthorized billing to the amount of $42.39 to my aol address
    I made a phone call to the number listed and was put through to the Phillipines and had a person who could hardly speak English and was unable to optain any details as to what the service is and how it was authorized.
    I will request my Credit Card company to deny any payments as I request it under the Michigan Banking Laws

    Further to the above.
    There is not a time limit under Michigan law when denial can be applied.
    I know this from sad experiences I encountered when in business as I had charges denied that were over 2 years old.
    My Bank had to honor the denial and i had to sue in order to recover my losses

    In January 20th, 2014 an unauthorized charge of US$43.91 appeared in my Capital One Master Card. I never ordered anything for this amount. About 2 years ago I purchased a small program valued at $ 11.99, and that was it. Now this people come out of the blue with this fraudulent charge. I called, but nobody answered the phone the first time. The second time someone answered and then he said somebody would fix this matter, then he put me on hold forever. I am overseas until March 31/2014. It's very difficult for me to follow up this matter from Nicaragua, where I am staying for the time being. I will be back in Canada April 1st, 2014. I already have started a claim with my Credit Card company (Capital One). Thank you for your support.

    Copie de mon relevé de Mastercard :

    10/04 Dri Spyhunter - 35, 99
    10/04 Dri Spyhunter - 35, 99
    Je vous serais gré de me fournir les factures correspondantes à ces soi disant achats ? et je n'ai pas de trace mail

    En plus votre fichier est gratuit

    I did not purchase anything from this vendor. Have a dispute with Chase against this vendor. I had my card canceled and reissued under a new number to avoid any further fraudulent charges from this company.

    I filed a complaint re:DRI*SPYHUNTER for another recent charge (DRI = Digital River, Inc, 10380 Bren Rd W, Minnetonka, MN 55343) --- also with Enigma SW Group USA, LLC, 2803 Gulf to Bay Blvd, Clearwater, FL 33759. I have now filed a dispute with my credit card co. It sure seems there are folks from all over the world who complain about the charges this company/merchant hits you with unawares. It took some digging to realize DRI was Digital River, Inc. Good luck everyone I thought I had cancelled this last Apr and yet here we are again.
