RN *REALMUSIC / How did they get my account number?

1 United States Review updated:

Visiting some homepage a popup offered a free real player update (apparently) - so I figured it was ok and clicked yes. Now I find out I've been drawn about 10 Euros from my bank account in Denmark by some company called RN *REALMUSIC. Since I never ever did buy music online - I know this to be a criminal fraud. What I can't understand is: how did they manage to steal my credit card information (since I know I did not give it away at this occasion!) Thankful for comments...

Wish someone would bust this company! And the real RealPlayer program producers should react to criminals posing as their legitimate company.

Per - in Scandinavia.

Hopefully, they get trapped soon!

RN REAL MUSIC charged me £8.50. I dont know for what and I dont even know how they got my bank details.I just saw it on my statement 2 mins ago. so i went to look for RN REAL MUSIC on the internet. and i found out that i wasnt the only one who got charged for no reason. I have already uninstalled the program. this has to stop.

Same thing happened to me. I'm charged 11,99 euro every month. At first I thought it had something to do with itunes. Because I haven't bought anything from itunes since quite a while, I'm starting to get suspicious.

Does anyone know how to stop this?

My son is in Australia and I am looking after his bank account. RN*Music have been taking £8.50p out his account every month, but when I spoke to him about it he did not know who they were. Before he went to Australia he downloaded some music from itunes but that was over a year ago. This seems to be a scam as we have not authorized RN*Music to take anything out of the account.
Please can you help me to stop these payments and get his money back as the bank does not seem to be able to do anything about it.

One thing you'll want to check out on your bank card account is if there are other mysterious charges. Sometimes, those who've stolen your CC# elsewhere will make a frivolous charge online like this to test the account number and see if it's legitimate. I'm not saying that that's what's going on with the Real charges hear, but it would help explain how someone got your info when you don't have an e-mail verification or anything that shows how Real got your data.
