Our lawyers are investigating potential claims on behalf of worldwide consumers against Oberon Media ("Oberon" or the "Company") relating to the Company's GameSaver Subscription Internet Cy.
On November 30, 2009, a class action complaint was filed against the Company in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, Case No. CV 09-8764 JFW (AGRx). The complaint alleges that Oberon Media engaged in unfair, unlawful and fraudulent business practices with respect to the GameSaver Subscription by, among others, charging consumers for subscription that they did not order, charging unauthorized charges on their credit cards, double billing for games, and making it impossible to cancel the subscription without paying an illegal penalty.

Last month I bought a game online. Family Feud. I gave my credit card number and am being charged $6.95 a...
While reviewing my bank account I noticed some charges from a company called Gamesaver. It was for a subscription fee for $6.95 plus an additional ATM fee charge of $0.13.
I went online to research what this was and I found that it is a service connected to Yahoo Games. They are actually part of Oberon-Media, a game development company.
I also found several complaints listed here about this company. This was very disconcerting.
I went onto the Yahoo Games site and tried to cancel the subscription. The notice that I recieved is attached below. They are saying that I would be charged $69.50 for the balance of my yearly subscription. First, I do not recall ever ordering a yearly games subscription from Yahoo. And if I did, I should have the right to cancel it at any time without having to pay the balance for the year. I did recently pay for and downloaded a game from Yahoo. I did not sign up for or agree to a monthly subscription. I paid full price of $19.99 for the game, as I have on occassion in the past. Also, the game failed to work properly so now I'm out what I paid for it.
I have contacted by bank and instructed them to reverse the charges and to not accept charges from this company in the future. This seems to be the only way to stop the fees. I hope that if enough complaints are filed something will be done about this company.
Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter.
