Unknowingly made a payment?


Hi Bitdefender,

It;s come to my attention that I was billed for a sum of £53.95 which seems to be a renewal cost.

Usualy I recieve some notification to renew, but I wasn't aware that there was any kind of pre-approved payment. In fact as I recall, I purchased the license using a code from an Ebay seller, so I have no idea why this was pre approved, and would not have authorised it at this time.

It was not my intention to re-purchase this edition of Bitdefender, as I never used the wealth of features that it offered, or even for 3 computers that it covered. I was going to downgrade to perhaps just the internet version or something similar upon researching what I needed, so this was the last thing I expected.

I sent an email to the support email provided from the paypal payment to cancel this auto-renewal immediately, and asked to receive a refund for this product as I no longer want make use of it. I sent in a support ticket related to the issue with no reply as of yet since yesterday Ticket no. - 2017051512400001

Dear Dominic Szikla,

Thank you for renewing !

Your Bitdefender Bitdefender Total Security 2016 subscription associated with has been extended with 12 MONTHS, for 53.95 GBP and it will expire on May 15, 2018.

You also have a major 50% sale on the website which is extremely deceitful, considering I was billed for £53.95 during the same period. I received some email saying I would need to confirm this transaction, but there was no such thing, as I DID NOT authorize anything to support this payment.

I handle my finances carefuly and support a young family, the money that was taken is literally the money put aside for my food whilst I'm at work. I would never have authorised this right now, and the last thing I need is a suprise bill from my internet anti virus.

I can give more info if needed.

Eagerly await response,

Dominic Szikla

    My ticket was responded to.

    I understand that this is a common issue, but it was an extremely unexpected bill for myself. I was contacted by a member of staff that was very genuine and helpful. All my problems are now resolved and I'm completely satisfied with the outcome.

    Highly recomended customer services
