|I recently purchased Safe Torrents Lifetime Trial via Plimus for $1.00 on June 3, 2011.|
Three days later, which is today, I got an e-mail receipt from Plimus for "my" purchase of another lifetime trial for Safe Torrents for $29.95, which I did NOT authorize to purchase for that amount of money. I tried to access the Plimus web page, however, I was not able to log-in because I did not even have a password for "my" username that Plimus randomly gave, which is consist of 30 digits of numbers. The fact that Plimus freely overused my financial information for fraud transaction makes me angry and I am very upset that Plimus might do this fraud again to me with my information in anytime. I am reporting this fraud transaction to my bank tomorrow.
|Same thing happened to me too! I wrote to them and got this answer: "Hello, |

|Good news! I have the money back! I suggest you look for them! "The dispute for invoice # 42225077 was just updated. Comments: VENDOR : Full refund ( USD 37.44 ) - customer request." |
http://home.plimus.com/ecommerce/shoppers/customer-support - only the order number must be entered and there is the option to choose a refund.
|There is small gray print on the signup page that says, "* Trial terms: After 3 days period you will be charged for the lifetime service. You could easily unsubscribe any time during trial period. " I could not find the fee for a lifetime service anywhere on the site. Most of these "trial" memberships will convert to some sort of monthly bill. I was going to sign up, but the fact that they obscure what the trial really is (signing up for a monthly fee unless you cancel), and the fact that they don't disclose the fee amount has changed my mind.|
|I am in the same boat. My son has a You Tube account, and received a message on You Tube, from a "Becky" with a link to a "You Tube Membership" account, to increase his viewings/traffic to his account. This was supposedly USD 1. He entered my credit card details, with my permission (I'm normally so careful with this kind of thing, I can't believe that I allowed it) As we are in South Africa, they deducted R363.00 off my account as opposed to R7!|
When I tried to reply to their "receipt for payment" email address, to cancel immediately, my message has been returned as undeliverable.
I have reported this to the fraud division, at my bank and stopped my card.
I will now try the link that Adelia has given (thanks Adelia!) to try and get a refund, although I don't hold much hope.
After googling Plimus, what I don't understand is that their fraudulant activities have been going on for many years, and they just keep resurfacing in different guises.
I want to warn anyone out there with regards to the You Tube link.
|please returned my money for me, i did not authorize you to take out my money .please returned it .asap|
