    I took this "Annual Visitor Survey" looking like it was from my bank so I trusted it.

    I am a little surprised that I DID receive the product of Health Beauty Product for $10.67 post and packaging on 7/10/2014. But I also received Health Beauty Product for $115.62 on 20/10/2014 and then Health Beauty Product for $129.97 on 5/11/2014.

    I will cancel ALL internet use of my Debit card until I next need it, hoping that these charges will stop before then. Otherwise I need to cancel my Debit card and get a new Debit card.

    Today I saw Annual Visitor Survey from "bank".co.nz and also "wises.maps.com". I did not select a product. I was looking for the "Health Beauty Product" so I could cancel the "subscription" but this is not possible.

      I would recommend contacting your bank and cancelling the card immediately.

    Saw this same message popup on computer reboot ( Automatic update I believe). I'm very surprised since I'm very careful about what I download and the sites I visit.
