I would just like to say that i cannot access the website at all to cancel online nor can i call because there isn't a number for this service. I don't know how i was offered the service but i too was charged before i knew it and that's why i want to cancel. Why have the service if you cannot use it. There should be a way to atleast cancel if you don't want the service and get your money back. So my question is who do you call or contact and how? Please tell me. The link they ask you to use doesn't work and i just do not want to be charged again.

It's really f...d up you know!!!

    I have been billed by a company called csdetails.com for the sum of £59.49 to enable me to download music from a firm calling themselves limewire however I have received an e mail from the official limewire company saying that they do not charge such an amount and that I should telephone this company however i do not have a number to call I have tried to call the number on my bill but there does not seem to be an dialing tonne from this number.

    I went to sign up for limewire and instead got another program called 360 pro share. I paid a little over $2.00 /mo to get coverage and what did I get? A charge of over $60.00 from a site called downloadhome.com. Word of advice: Be careful what you ask for. Do your research on the company to find complaints, research their customer care services and if you can reach them, because I sure didn't get much service results. I figured out it was all just a big SCAM.

    Because I put the address for Limewire.com in the search engine instead of the address bar, a list of websites came up from which to select. At the time, I wasn't aware that there were all of these sites unrelated to Limewire that are basically copying an ad for Limewire (and other legitimate sites) so that the buyer feels they are actually on the Limewire site. I unknowingly ended up on a web page called Limewiresoftware.org. They charged $49.95 for what I thought was a "lifetime membership" (I did not know the real Limewire does not sell lifetime memberships) to Limewire Pro. At one point, there was a "special price" of $26.95 blinking, with a time clock showing how long the customer had left to take advantage of same. Like an *ss, I paid with my Visa (which I have now cancelled). The transaction was made through Clikbank. After I paid, a pop-up came up that said "If you paid for Limewire Pro you have been scammed". I e-mailed Limewire (the real one) and copied the web address, asking them if I had been taken. Yes, they replied, they do not sell but one version of Limewire Pro, and the basic is free. Apparently, this organization, "download society" charges a person for directing you to sites where you can buy what you can get for free, with some kind of text support. Clikbank has said they would refund my money but denied that there was anything nepharious about the web site.

WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP... and worse... there is no way to find these idiots and/or complain or get HELP... SERVICE... ASSISTANCE...!!! What a gigantic screw up these monkeys have created !!! I will tell everyone I know or can find... to NEVER trust these hidden goof-balls.

Searched limewire web for a phone number to connect support none provided or customer service. I never recieve a e-mail confirmation for the purchase and now I have no way contacting limewire without any bill or confirmation... Does any one have the phone number to support or customer service?.. Thank you in advance..

    What a problem. Even if you are just downloading unlicensed products, you never know what your going to get. You think your downloading one thing and you get something totally unexpected. And usually junk or spam or worse. Tried it a few times, staying away at this point. I just dont feel safe. I dont want to end up with a PC virus, spyware or something illegal on my PC.

    Limewire is not a scam, but a lot of individuals use it for illegal business. Currently, they are under court order to stop distributing their software due to all of the illegal downloading and uploading. There is a more detailed message on their site:

    We went to LimeWire website on Sunday 13 may to download music. We clicked to pay 1 pound 66 pence. We paid this amount using my visa debit card. I checked my account later and saw that, to my surprise, they charged me 34 pounds and 1 pence. Moreover, they charged me again the very next day with 34 pounds and 76 pence. I did not give my permission for these payments, and I am talking to my bank to get my money back.

    I tried the basic free version of Limewire and decided to purchase the software. As soon as I purchased it the program stopped working. I contacted tech support and they directed me to uninstall and reinstall a few programs on my computer. I followed all instructions and it still did not work. He continued to give me the same advice over and over. My computer starting crashing and I actually needed to go to the Geek Squad to have my computer saftly turned on and disable the program. The program was completly freezing my computer and was unable to even turn it on. I told tech support that I was patient and I tried everything he said and it doesnt work I want my money back. He then ignored me and I messaged him 2 more times and still no response. They have completely stole my money and I am left with a software that is not working and crashing my computer.

    when was this? Because as of 2010, Limewire is under a court order to not distribute its software and is being sued for allowing copyright infringement.

    They have a notice on their site saying not to download any of the fake Limewire programs. Was yours real or fake? You might've got a fake one and filled your computer with viruses.

    But then again, Limewire is basically all virus files anyway.

    Twice while searching for regular movies I was sickened by what appeared to be under age pornography. This website needs to be shut down and never brought up again. All i know is lesson learned, i will never be visiting such a site again. Complete disgust!
