DRI*Avast Software suspicious charge
« on: December 19, 2022, 07:13:15 AM »
Hello,
Recently I've taken a look at my credit card transactions and I saw a transaction of $99.99 dollars from a transaction named "DRI.AVAST Software". But I've never used their services before. I do not even own any of their subscriptions/apps. How can I get a refund and why was I charged this?

hi,
DRI.AVAST (Digital River) is an official eCommerce providers

How can I identify a charge from Avast on my billing statement?

Avast has partnered with established eCommerce providers that manage the online sales and distribution of our products and services.

The list below includes the different descriptors used by each of our authorized partners:

    Digital River:
        Digital River, Digital River Company, DigRiv Ireland Ltd, DRI, DRIAvast, DR*Avast
You must have (in the past) accepted a trial for an avast product with your bank details and forgotten to remove the Auto Renewal (it's checked by default and needs to be unchecked or cancelled.)

I refer you to a similar topic here, with more information (remove Auto Renewal, refund request)

some useful links:
