I am also being charged a 38.00 fee for DRI*Avast Software that I did not authorize! Eddy......why are you so defensive if no one on here speaks the truth? How are so many people being charged without their knowledge or authorization? This is a definite scam!!!! You have my checking account information.....not even my credit card or debit card.....how did you get my checking account info and why are you charging me for this? All your excuses to the other people on this forum is really lame. You sound like a lying child whistling in the dark trying to pretend that we are ALL idiots! I plan on letting people everywhere know about your scam on as many websites as I can.....and on as many search engines as I can.  This is NOT right.

Not reading properly what is on their screen when ordering is the most common cause.
It depends on the country but in most ones automatic renewal (aka continues protection) is enabled by default.
If people don't uncheck it, they they shouldn't say the have never given permission because they did gave permission for it.
Fact is that if automatic renewal is enabled, people will be charge around the time their subscription ends.

It also happens that someone else in the household has ordered avast and forgot to tell the other(s) about it.

I don't have your info as I do not work avast nor any of the payment processors they are using.
But it is real easy, you or someone else gave it to them.
As far as I know they are not clairvoyance or something like that.

avast nor any of the payment processors they are using is scam.
If you believe otherwise, go to the police and report it but don't look surprised if they say that you filed a false report.

Arguing isn't going to solve or satisfy anyone.
