www.downloadnova.com / Scam web site

Contact information:

This is a scam web site for people looking for movie file torrents. First on other sites it lists itself as having the torrent file. When you "signup" for ~$5.00. The file is not there. Thats bad enough but then you find you are automaticaly signed up to 3 porn sites which unless you go to the trouble of going to them and canceling the account you will be billed $30+ a month. I don't want to even think how difficult that would be with operations like this. I had to spend 15 minutes with my charge card bank canceling my card and getting a new one issued. The only way to stop things like this.

So you have been warned. Don't even think of signing up!

I found that you will be redirected to DownloadNova when Torrentz does not find what you are looking for. You could type anything like kdkdkdkdkd and it will create a downloadnova result search kdkdkdkdkd.iso, kdkdkdkdkd.rar, kdkdkdkdkd (2008) etc. With the intent to make think they have the file needed and trap you with their fraudulant site.

Not only did they not have the file I signed up for but anything else I clicked on was not available either.
Needless to say all I have got out of it is a number of momentary (hopefully) memberships of some porn sites.
Avoid like the plague.

The email receipts should give methods of contacting the sites.
I, hopefully, managed to get rid of the porn sites via interactive
chat with a helpdesk. I am not so confident that I have got rid of
downloadNova itself since I have had no response from Contact Support on their website (the helpdesk for the porn sites said they could not help with downloadNova itself).

I was just taken by this company and I'm mad. this is a dirty business. They fraudulently sign you up for porn site megadownloadpass.com which only appears after the transaction is completed. When I call my bank the actual sign up company is now "heather". I don't know how organizations like this are allowed to continue "doing" people. There is no protection against these dark businesses! BEWARE! STAY AWAY!

I too may have been a victim of these "shysters". I was looking download some hard to find music when I was directed to downloadnova.com, Stating that they had the artist and the music. So they wanted to sign me up for $4.87. And I thought no problem and gave my E-mail address and make up a username. After I gave them the info and click the button I was redirected to another sight called Megadownloadpass which features "porn". In order to complete the transaction they wanted your name, address, ph number, and CC number. After that was done, I went back to downloadnova for the music I wanted and guess what the music was unavailable. So I did a little digging on dowloadnova/megadownloadpass. Me and others were "takin in" The $4.87 is a 3 day trial membership. You must cancel before the 3 day membership ends or you will be billed $39.00 for 30 days. I check my CC statement online yesterday and $4.87 goes under a different name other than what they stated.The company that is actually billing you is called Jettis international. I Called my CC issuer and warn them of the "crooks" and the possible bogus charges.I'll be getting a new CC soon. In the meantime I'll be monitoring any suspicious charges until my new CC comes

I was also drawn in by these thieving bast**ds, how dare they do this. At this moment in time after reading all your comments, i believe i have cancelled my subscription with "megadownloadpass" which was supposed to be downloadnova well that was what i was lead to believe. I only realised i would be charged $39.73 monthly after the 3 day trial which was $4.87 however i received THREE emails chargin me $4.87 by TWO different billing accounts Viaty SL and Prolast sent 2 emails, at the moment i do not no if Prolast have charged me twice. I have cancelled before the 3 days are up i received a confirmation email saying my subscription had been cancelled and that i will no longer to be billed i went to the website "https://secure.jettisintl.com/support/index.html" entered my details Payment method - Subscriber ID Number and Email Address and also CCard Number which i was very hesitant about using but the page did seem secure and it worked "as far as i know it has worked" the email says it has been cancelled and for me to save this receipt "just incase something happens" at least i have something extra to take to the bank incase they are trying to pull the wool over my eyes. I really hope someone can put a stop to these fraudsters, thanks to the other guys for your comments previously they really helped me understand what he hell was goin on and what to do, hope you managed to get sorted, people need to speak out more about this serious problem, remember think twice to what you put your details too dont even think about signing upto these Ba*st*rds!!

this Jetts international is really a ###, they were used by many criminals for billing and they have many sites set up but all at the same interface. one of it is called eglobalbilling.com, I recommend everyone write to FTC to report them
