MegadownloadpassFraud

I

I signed up for a trial membership and received no confirmations. I have since been charged twice for $39.73 and once for $9.82. These are supposedly for 3 different memberships to sites I have never accessed. Calling for help give no help, just recordings referring you to customersupporthelp.com. I was able to access my account information through them to get the "membership numbers". The website is no better. Try to look up account information, "..having trouble with our service.." Try to contact service representative only available through a web form -- who knows when they'll respond. I was finally able to get the cancellation form to work using the "membership numbers" I got from their 877 number. Even then, they trick you into signing up for a subscription at a "reduced rate" by making the "Yes, I'm sure" button refer to accepting the reduced rate and not cancellation. I am unemployed and cannot afford these charges. I hope this information helps someone else.

    I've registered at this site to download some files I needed.

    Guess what, the downloads don't work, the files aren't there.

    It's just total fraud.



    So I've tried to cancel my membership, but this doesn't work as well.

    So I've been charged $39.73 on my credit card since my free memership has been expired.
    Also, I've received a SMS from my credit card company saying that the domain was: NEEDBILLHELP.COM and not Megadownloadpass.com.

    Happend to me also.
    Actually it called donwloadnovo which I registrated because it cost like $4 only. But it never worked to DL anything so I just forgot it. But some days later 39.73$ was taken from my bank account. I when I checked up which site I where registreaed on, it was Megadownloadpass.com (which is a pr0n site and never where my intend to be member on).

    I have the same problem from ( MEGAHELPLINE.COM ). I was charged $4.87 on 10/28, and $39.73 on 10/30. I found this disturbing also : The group is called ( SUPPORTBEAST.COM11 ). I had 2 separate charges for $1.00 on 10/28, a charge of $9.82 and $39.73 on 10/30. I can't even locate this group online.

    Their fraudulent M.O. keeps repeating itself.
    I am a victim of their scam as well.
    DO NOT EVER USE THEIR SERVICES!
    I am getting a new Visa card right now

    Instead of pressing Yes I'm Sure, press No.

    If it helps, I don't know. Contact your bank and ask them to cancel the transfer or recall it. Should hopefully work. If not, close your creditcard and get yourself a new one.
    That is what you can do really.

    Same thing happened to me. And I am fuming mad. I don't think my bank is going to be of any help. We need to get this scam publicised...
