I've been caught by a company which one had hoped was reputable. And I can only wonder how many others have been caught by a similar scam by similar companies.

About 3 years ago I purschased Norton virus program and made the mistake of clicking on automatic renewal. Then the computer repairer put another virus program on the puter. Then when I received the notification for renewal last year I notified them that I was not using their program any more they still debitted my a/c. AQs usuall the Banks are petty useless when you get this problem so I let it go. Earlier this year I applied for a new Credit card in the hope that because it would have a different expiry date that this stop it. Then last thursday I got this renewal notice from Norton saying that were going to debit my a/c again I immeditaely replied to the email saying I didn't use their program and I was not authorising the payment. Now did they stop? of course not the next day I find they have still taken the cash from my a/c despite my email saying it wasn't authorised.

I can only wonder how many other they have robbed over the years and how many other companies also rob their old clients thus way. the lesson is not to click the auto renewal payment box.
