Witabett.com / Credit Card Fraud

1 United States Review updated:

While using my computer a pop up came up advising me my computer had been infected with a virus that would steal my identity, etc., and that I needed to up date my antivirus and spyware. A seal similar to the software I use was shown and I hit it. It then had a place for me to enter a credit card number, etc., which I did. I then realized my antivirus had not expired so I called my computer technician and immediately took my computer to them for scrubbing etc. I also immediately called the my Master Card Bank and adivised them to close the account and not honor any charges with out my permission. I had to change all of my other passwords and usernames as well. My computer technician found Witabett on a list of known fraud entities. He said they are operating out of Cyprus and that the virus and theft is completed when I hit the pop up. I hope others learn by my mistake. I am trying to get my money back from my bank since it is their fault the charge was allowed to proceed and post to my account. Of course, the Bank has a phone bank in the Phillipines and who ever answers doesn't speak English. Wow!!!

    Got my Kroger credit card bill; charged $79.90 on 6/19 for what I don't know. Tried phone number on statement numerous times; always "Circuits are busy." Website has no phone number or address; only their website but nothing interacting. No way to contact them for information. I have no idea what this charge is, but I want it gone!

    Found a charge on my credit card for $21.50 from Witabett.com. I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS COMPANY!

    Credit card company issued a credit for this amount. Said they are very much aware of Witabett and their fraud.

    The same thing happened to me. Not only did I lose the US$99.90 I paid for the software which I never received. But as it was being downloaded to my computer, it infected my entire hard drive and I had to have it replaced and all of my files recovered which was an additional US$495.02. I think this warrants a class action suit. Did anyone else experience this?

    Yes. Todat I purchased the anti virus software for 59.95. They charged my card 94.70. I contacted them and I'm awaiting a refund. Five minutes after purchasing this nonsense software I checked my bank account online for other reasons and I saw "WITABETT!" i have no idea who that is and I did'n authorize a deduction in that amount.

    I did not authorize any charges from this company. I paid for an anti-virus software from another company. I need a refund.
