URGENT - Charged for DRi*Avast Software and Need to Cancel
« on: July 08, 2018, 10:25:53 PM »
I was checking my bank account today and noticed I was charged 49.99 for "Dri*Avast Software" when I never made an account with Avast in the first place, nor have I purchased premium or any of their products. How can I can cancel this when I never made an account or product number? I'm unsure of what Dri* even is. Getting help directly from support has been difficult as well as they ask for specifics.

The charge is processing as of today, July 8th.

Someone(at some point) has made a purchase of an Avast product or registered for a 'Trial version' in order for the payment details to be available. Auto Renewal is UNFORTUNATELY checked by default and needs to be unchecked or cancelled.
Possibly this information may help.

I was charged $52.74 for DRI*AVAST SOFTWA and I did not order this. I do not even know what it is. Please refund my money and do what ever you have to do to get rid of this. Thank You.

I was checking my bank account today and noticed I was charged $86.39 for "Dri*Avast Software" when I never made an account with Avast in the first place, nor have I purchased premium or any of their products. How can I can cancel this when I never made an account or product number? I'm unsure of what Dri* even is. Getting help directly from support has been difficult as well as they ask for specifics.

The charge is pending as of today, 9-3-2018.

I was checking my bank account today and noticed I was charged £39.99 twice for PAYPAL *DIGITALRIV 353143690014" £79.98. I am a current customer however I do not have any email communication nor any confirmation on my account for software that matches these amounts nor dates. How do I get a refund? Getting help directly from support has been difficult.

I have also been charged £39.99 for something I didn’t apply for. Contacted them and they say I did. But hey I didn’t as I have a malware on my new iPad. So they will never admit it. So Avast keep the money and keep lying to people about it. You obviously need it more than I do..... if I wasn’t in a wheel chair I would fight on. Can’t be arsed

Follow the instructions and contact customer support. Complaining in this forum isn't going to solve your problem. Customer service will.
