welwatch / fraudulent charge on my account I made no purchase

1 United States Review updated:

Two transactions - one for $2.67 and one month later a transaction for $42.18 appeared on my credit card. As I am in Australia my bank also charged overseas transaction fees. I made no purchase nor received goods from this company. My bank is saying that the company is registered with MasterCard secure and that the company says they attempted to authenticate the transaction (which I strongly believe is incorrect) and as I was not a member of MasterCard Secure my bank will not refund the transaction but I have the option to pursue the matter and the bank will send it to their Fraud operationsw Area. I intend to do so.

    welwatch - Credit Card Charges
    Barton Publishing
    United States

    I purchased and downloaded an article on line from Barton Publishing for $19.95, and found a $1 charge from welwatch on the same monthly statement. I did not really pay attention and then found that for the next two months I received a $29.95 charge from Welwatch. I have advised my Credit Card Co that these charges were not authorized and I received no service. Obviuolsy somewhere in the small print for Barton they have a hooker that signs you up. This is deceptive practice. BEWARE!

    I purchased a health product from Barton Publishing for $19.95 on 12th Dec 08.
    On 30th Dec 08 Welwatch made an unauthorised charge of $29.95 from the same credit card.
    I see from your website that I am one of many.
