Don't know the website... my accout just said: DRI*PCTOOLS.COM this posted on my account on 11/10/08... the amount was 39.95. Last Thursday I saw another unauthorized debit of 39.95 by DRI**ELEMENT5.COM (whoever this is? a scam ofcourse.) ... yet this last scam on the 11/10 was after I changed my Debit Card number??? How is that even possible... I JUST HAD IT CHANGED AND HAVE NOT USED IT!!!

    I just discovered 2 payments this month plus 5 other one's originating from Cyprus.
    From the comment, Visa itself is compromised.Have cancelled my credit card yesterday and this morning another payment recorded on a dead credit card?
    Have contacted the bank asking for a full investigation.

    As I explained in the subject line above. I no longer own a computer, I havn't owned one in a while. I was wonder why my Sears Master card was charged i guess to renew my spy program. Can someone get back to me and explain what these charges are. The charges were made in August or September.

    I had a charge of 76.27 on my debit card from PC TOOLS and I had never herd of them.I called them to stop it because it was still pending.They directed me to Element 5 and they told me they couldn't do anything.I had my debit card canceled and I called PC TOOLS and told them if there is money taken out of my account I wanted a refund and I was told since I canceled my card they could not give me a refund but I could chose one of thier products.It might not mean anything but we had a email from eeb.msn and it went into our email and mailed itself out wanting people to buy certain products.We got it removed .Did anyone else get one and do you think it was a worm that entered and got debit or credit card info.

    On 22 December, 2008 I discovered that 29, 95 USD payment has been made on 04th Decemver through my credit card. I must confirm that I don't know this company DRI*PCTOOLS and never had the intention to purchase anything from them. Obviously I was subject to fraud. In my view the authorized agencies must start investigation against the people wha stay behind all this.

    I have received a charge from Bank of America for $29.95 for an alleged purchase on 12/16/08
    #DRI PCTOOLS. COM [protected] MN which I called and it was pure Telephone Sex talk.
    I have an Anti Virus from Norton and Hard and Software I buy directly from the store. This is just another scam and I will dispute it when I call Bank of America in the morning.

    I also received a debit on my credit card for $49.95 from DRI*PCTOOLS for which I gave no authorization. I did purchase a product from this company in 2006 but have not used any of their products for two years.I contacted them by phone and was told that they had no current record of any purchase from me and told me to contact my bank, which I have done. This is a scam! They are ripping people off.

    I have never heard of this company, let alone order anything from them. An unauthorized debit charge appeared on my bank statement today for $29.95. I immediately called my bank and they will do an investigation and issue a new card. I hope someone finds the perpetrators! I'm now wondering if I should close that bank account altogether. Any advice from anyone?

    Wendy,

    PC Tools.com is a computer software company that sells antivirus software. Your best bet is probably to give them a call and they should be able to sort it all out for you. From other complaints it appears your common problem is an automated renewal to their software.

    They have the following listed for customer service in the US including an 800 number thats open 23hrs a day (taken from http://www.pctools.com/contact/).

    My credit card has been charged by your company £29.95. I have never heard of your company. I do not know what it does. I have no desire to subscribe to it. Kindly refund the sum you have taken.

    I received my credit card (VISA) statement in the mail to find a 39.95$ charge from this company for no reason. I did not purchase anything or order anything. Please be aware of this scam!

    I was just charged $29.95 by this company on 7/19/10, and caught it on my statement.

    I have no clue what this company is or does... and this page is the first result that comes up if you google the transaction details. I alraedy filed an unauthorized transaction dispute with my bank.

    Is it Visa itself that is compromised? My bank uses Visa for their Debit/Check Card provider...
