In 2008 I purchased software from an America company and was given a £10.00 discount off my next purchase as a thank you and to encourage me to purchase more, I had to follow a link then accept and print it out. I’ve never used it and it is still here in my home somewhere.
Every month from then I was stopped £8.00 from my bank account until I queried it with my bank. I spoke to the fraud department at the bank who gave me details as to who was taking it including a telephone number. They told me to ring them, complain and demand my money back if they refused to do so the bank would take it up.
I rang the number, and SHOPPERDISCOUNTS.C explained that because I had accepted the voucher I had automatically accepted subscribing to them, they must have taken my bank details from the purchase of the software. I demanded a refund of £80.00 which after a lot of messing about came in two stages. Be very careful and read everything when purchasing on the net.
