Today, 5/27/17, i received in the mail a letter from my credit card company saying that i was late on my payment. i have not used this card since november, 2016 so i got online and found these charges on my account:
03/27 google *rovio ca 23.99
03/27 google *igg mobilegame ca 4.99
03/27 google *igg mobilegame ca 19.99
03/27 google *igg mobilegame ca 4.99
03/28 google *rovio ca 19.99
03/28 google *rovio ca 29.99
03/29 google *rovio ca 4.99
03/29 google *rovio ca 11.99
03/29 google *rovio ca 4.99
03/29 google *minecraft ca 2.99
All these for a total of $128.90
I suspect that it was my young grandson that got pulled in to getting these games by them offering a free one and then telling him there were all of these others after this one... not telling him that they are not free and must be paid for. this is what happens with these kids. they think they are all free because there is not a clear explanation that each one after the free one costs money to get them. there should be a way for the adult to authorize these transactions before they are done. i don't know how they got my credit card number, but i am retired and on a fixed income. i don't like being charged for items i did not authorize. i am requesting a full refund of $128.90. i will very much appreciate getting this money back.
