Microsoft / credit card charged without permit

Kuwait Review updated:

Hi, on feb 15, 2015 microsoft has charged my visa card 1 dollar for an incopmlete payment transaction online. I canceled before completing the purchase but microsoft charged me $1 for nothing. I recieved sms saying that "online store bill. Ms. Net lu" has charged $1. I still do not no what is this charge for. I asked my bank for the transaction number and they gave me this number (053250) .
This $1 must be refunded to my visa. Thanks
Yours,
Ali

    Microsoft - Harassment!
    United States

    This scam lists our telephone number and we're getting numerous telephone calls and our cell service is being billed for incoming calls and it is a business phone. So changing the number with our server is not an option at this time.

    Beware people!

    I have a problem with Microsoft and their claim filing process. I recently filed a rebate and sent it through the mail. The claim process is not the same had I filed on line. When you submit a claim through the mail you are required to supply additional product information. When you file online all they want is the barcode and store info. The only reason that I purchased the microsoft product was because of the rebate. Had I known that they have such a double standard when it comes to product rebates I would have gone with someone else.

    I ordered Microsoft Student Office and only received 2 of the 3 files necessary to download the product. I emailed them asking for the missing file. No response. I then cancelled the order and requested my money back. Not only have they not given me my money back, they billed me again a week later! No money and no product. What a scam.

    I found the issue related to wrong charge on my credit card. The reason is free website offer from Microsoft small bsisness live. They ask your credit card info to validate and then keep it on filr for billing annual charges. There is no customer care where you can call. The only # given is 866-591-5483 and when you call it all u heard please go to the website...

    Can't believe that they are ripping people just like that?

    On 12/30/09 I made two attempts to purchase Microsoft Office 2007 and both times I was unable to get it to download to my computer, so I asked them to cancel the order and refund my money. It was paid by credit card(visa). They charged me with the order twice, however they only refunded me the price once on 01/02/10. Please refund me the other charge, as I went to a local Office Max and bought the item. Thank you. Jack McClaran

    I get more than fifty spam emails a week from Hotmail acounts.

    I too, received several hotmail spams. They were advertisers with their addresses attached such as ITSOL, 2insure4less, elearners or onlinestudent financialaid.com, freecreditreport.com, and others, I think. In all cases they were deceptive, and you could see all the recipients' email addresses, meaning the addresses just got out to the world for abuse.

    If you see any address on these, advertiser, or sender, along with the unsubscribe link, report the situation spam to the BBB, the attorney general of the state, the ftc and any other authority you see fit. Clicking unsubscribe will probably get you twice or more the amount of spam, so don't do that.

    sending the complaint to MSM means that msm will close the account, which does no good at all because spammers just have another one in line to spam from. Don't think they ever use the same one twice. And, hotmail doesn't seem able to get the spammer to stop with the new ones. This probably good in the long run because if Hotmail just stopped the spammer, it'd go on somewhere else for spam and illegal activity. If the spammer is reported to an authority, it could possibly get sued and fined, and have some sort of consequence in addition to being stopped.

    So, if you see any illegal email, Hotmail or otherwise, and see an address, report it to whereever seems most applicable, and easiest for you. I, for one appreciate anyone who can do this. These authorities can't act on one complaint, but if several of us report the same businesses, spammers and complaints, they can do something about it.
