Although I was subscribed for Macafee security until January 2017, they took £89.99 from my account without my authorisation in May 2016. I didn't notice until December of that year when the usual annual payment of £89.99 was taken in the December. I contacted them and asked for the May amount to be refunded. They refused as I was over the 30 day refund period. I have spent countless hours on the phone trying to make them understand that this was an illegal payment but they just keep repeating the 30 day refund... I feel this is a deliberate deception and from reading some of the complaints on here it would seem that it is a regular practice. I would like to complain to an independent body but dont know how. Any suggestions?

    First, you should know how to talk courteously it you will be calling them, and don't complain as if it is their fault; because on the first place, if you are not lazy to take time to read what the product you are buying, you should have learn that they will be doing that, unless you turn off the auto-renewal (you would have learn how to do this if you read the instruction they provided before you complete your purchase). This process applies to all anti-virus subscription. Just don't be lazy to read.
