Privacy Matters 1-2-3

Web user beware! This “outfit” has their advertisements on a lot of social networking web sites.  If their “pop-up” appears on your screen, I would advise that you immediately power-off your computer.

I consider myself fairly web-savvy and have done countless, secure, safe transactions on the Internet for the past 15-years.  But this event totally disregarded my choice to decline their purported service — clicking “No thanks” resulted in a monthly recurring charge from my credit card.  And I can only blame myself for not catching it earlier, but this wreaks of a criminal act.

Well, calling their customer service was no treat either, when you are greeted by “Enter the credit card number that is being billed”.  Yeah, right, like I want to disclose that information to you, when you ripped it off dove-tailing another separate online service to begin with.  I purportedly received a claim number and the last charge will get reversed within the next two business days.  Stay tuned, I have this suspicious feeling this episode ain’t quite over.  Let’s hope my intuition on this matter is wrong.

  1. It must be said that upon cancelling this “service”, Privacy Matters did refund the current and prior month’s subscription fees — which was welcomed relief.
