“I know this is going to be difficult to get back my money. They did not even email me that they were taking money from account. I did not sign up for a single movie, yet they have been taking money.
These guys lead you to believe you have a five day trial but hit your credit card immediately and then try to get it back. The first reply is polite and really just buys them time, ten days later you are still sucking eggs, I got my bank involved, but I do not hold out much hope.
I should have known this was a scam, I signed up for a trial and was charged, then I cancelled my account, then was charged for another month, I finally got a response saying they had closed the account and were refunding the last month, I received a confirmation number from them but the refund has never shown up in my account almost 2 months later. Needless to say but stay away.
One of the worst experience ever, never get to see nothing and was charge $52. Got to issued a complain to my bank, and went to court to take of this with international matters. Even if I don’t get my money back at least not one will get ripped off. “
