www.CineChest.com - a Fraudulent Movie Streaming Website

The movie streaming website www.cinechest.com has been reported by many persons on the internet as fraudulent. Many of the complaints are about unauthorized hidden charges of their credit cards, not able to watch the movies that were advertised, and the website only has very old movies.

The reason I started researching this website is because I was tricked into clicking on the following advertisement:

A Flash Player Update is Required to View this Content

A Flash Player Update is Required to View this Content

See details…
End User Licence Agreement
*Updating takes less than one minute-upgrade now!

Clicking on the advertisement took me to the website www.cinechest.com.

The advertisement had nothing with do with the upgrading of my Flash Player, but was a deceptive move by Cinechest to get me to visit their website.

Some of the Many Complaints made by Unsatisfied Customers of cinechest.com:

  • "please do not sign up for this, such a scam, only very old movies and hidden charges to your credit card. very dissatisfied!!!!!! then they charged me $1 to cancel my supposedly "free" account which I only needed a credit card to confirm my identity!! I will be spreading the word of this sham."
  • "Very expensive and only old films: They said that I signed in with my credit card only to ensure my identity. That was in the sign up process. Then when I got in the ovies was very old and I really just wanted to get out and cancel my memebership. After only a few days they charged me 3 times the amount that Netflix costs in my Country! When I visited the website I still couldn't find my account to close it down. Then after searching carefully I found the account and I closed it down.in the signing up there should be a warning that "ok, we use your credit card to establish your identity and after 5 days we charge you for the next month" and then when you get the "welcome" mail there should be an unsubscribe link. All in all just a hoax to make money!!"
  • "CineChest.com give a 5 days trial to test the service but never talk about the fee after trail finishes. They charge automatically $49.99!!! I never saw a movie because all of them are really old maybe because they don't pay copyrights for them. Stay away!"
  • "When I signed up at cinechest.com, there was no disclosure that the membership is free for 5 days only. First, I was charged $1.05 CAD which I consented to based on their advertisement that it is a one time charge for unlimited download and then there was NO indication that there will be a recurring charge. I looked at my visa statement and I was charged $51.63 within 5-day period. What a scam!!! I phone the customer support for a cancellation. I was given a Cancellation Reference#: 1633995. When I asked if I can have this confirmed by email so that I can have traceability, the customer service refused indicating it's not their standard practice to email customer. This is yet another indication of what a scam this is."

Based on these complaints and personal experience with this website, I would not recommend signing up or registering for this service.

    Cinechest is a big scam. I spent the same to pretend supposedly upgrade flash, I never subscribed to this site and ripping off a purchase of 51 dollars charged to my credit card. But worse is the response of the issuing bank: ... the purchase was cast from e-mail is ... course and deliver the card who is not more if the bank swindler or trucho site.

    • May 20, 2016 at 10:44 AM by an anonymous user from: Oslo, Norway

      I just discovered this in my bank account. Had to cancel the card, the bank recommended. But I also contacted Cinechest and through their chat service got them to cancel the "subscription", which I did'nt know I had in the first place! Lesson learned: be careful what you sign up for, even a little trial.

  • November 26, 2015 at 9:29 AM by an anonymous user from: Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

    I was also a victim of cinechest.com. It says to input my credit card details to register my account but they won't charge me anything for the registration. Few days after, I was surprised to be charged with 69.99 AUD Bank charge for foreign currency transaction.

    How can I ensure that I stop membership and stop receiving any other charges from this scammer? Pls. Help. Thanks

    • November 26, 2015 at 9:31 AM by info

      The best thing to do is to cancel the card. But, contact your bank first and ask them what they recommend.

  • October 12, 2015 at 8:00 PM by an anonymous user from: San Juan, Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico

    The best way to stop "CineChest.com" is to stay away from it. But if you get zap, then call your credit card company and report it as a scam site, and cancel your account, so they cannot zap you again.

  • August 1, 2015 at 4:35 AM by an anonymous user from: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

    Thank you for your info and sorry you had to pay for it with your hard earned cash. It's your kind of service that should be rewarded and their kind of services that should not be allowed to even touch a keyboard.

    Lets spread the word and maybe with some luck they will have to get a real job like work. Theft is not dignified especially when it's off the average honest worker just trying to save a buck by looking to see a movie while he has two rare hours to themselves, f* it, maybe I'll look for a honest sight to give me money to .

    Thanks again, it made my night just to know that there are people who give a sh* I was just about to give them my number when I thought to check them out sorry.

    Cinechest you will have to give that belt a tightening tomorrow and go hungry tonight.

  • June 23, 2015 at 12:22 AM by an anonymous user from: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

    I cancelled this last month, how come there is new charges. Stop it now!

    • June 23, 2015 at 3:22 AM by info

      Report it to your bank and have your money refunded.

  • May 14, 2015 at 4:34 PM by an anonymous user from: Mesa, Arizona, United States

    Yes this is 100% a SCAM! I was looking for some old movies to watch online for free and came across this site. But when I saw it asked for a credit card number I hit my "back" button to exit and continue searching elsewhere.

    WELL... this morning I was looking at my bank account summary and saw a charge for $49.95 from CINECHEST.COM!

    How is this even possible?! I'm not sure if somehow they can steal information off your phone or computer...

    I do have my card number saved in to the automatic fill in on my phone, so whenever I'm ordering something I just have to type in the first number on my card and then it automatically comes up. So I'm not sure if they can steal your info that way or not? But they got my Debit card number somehow and it wasn't from me!

    So be EXTREMELY CAREFUL with the site! I truly don't understand how they are not being shut down and/or ARRESTED!

  • May 13, 2015 at 7:41 PM by an anonymous user from: Omaha, Nebraska, United States

    I just saw a charge on my account for cinechest and never really finished with signing up. Because I didnt want the trail. But they still charge my aact 49.99 for nothing.

    I didnt even get an email confirmation that I even signed up. I been on the twice today.

    Stay away from any of these sites. It's a scam! I soo mad right now.


  • April 17, 2015 at 11:31 PM by an anonymous user from: Fujairah, Al Fujayrah, United Arab Emirates

    When I signed up at cinches.com, there was no disclosure that the membership is free for first 5 days only.

    I was charged $1.05 CAD which I agreed to because they had mentioned that it is a one time charge for unlimited download and then there was NO indication that there will be a recurring charge.

    I looked at my credit card statement and I was charged around $50 within 5-days period. They are frauds! Period. I have cancelled my subscription now.

    • April 18, 2015 at 9:43 AM by info

      They will not refund your money even if you have cancelled the subscription. Please report to your bank.

  • April 12, 2015 at 2:08 AM by an anonymous user from: Nottingham, England, United Kingdom

    They are taking over £35 a month from my business bank account which I have not authorised. Reported to bank as fraudulent transactions.

  • February 20, 2015 at 10:54 AM by an anonymous user from: Richmond, Virginia, United States

    In reviewing our credit card bill, we saw a charge to cine chest. We never heard of it and never signed up for it. We don't know how they got our credit card info. Our credit card company tagged it as fraudulent. We were refunded our money. I wrote to Cine Chest and told them that I never signed up for their service. They said I did and I didn't cancel before the 5 day free period was over.

    They even gave me my alternate email password. How they got this is a mystery, but the credit card company thinks it had something to do with the Home Depot hacking. Everyone should closely look at every charge on their credit card bill.

    • April 27, 2015 at 12:09 PM by an anonymous user from: Brussels, Belgium

      Yep, I have the same thing.

  • February 17, 2015 at 12:57 PM by an anonymous user from: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    How do I correct this?

  • January 10, 2015 at 6:23 AM by an anonymous user from: Port of Spain, Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

    This article is right on. They started charging hidden fee and I bought nothing from them. They need to be stopped.

  • December 17, 2014 at 11:35 AM by an anonymous user from: Long Beach, California, United States

    I have never even heard of Cinechest.com. I just noticed the charges recently. I probably unknowingly clicked on something also. Isn't there a way to combat this? This is literally robbery!

    • December 17, 2014 at 11:59 AM by info

      Contact your bank or credit card provider.

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:05 AM by an anonymous user from: Sacramento, California, United States

    Yeah, I just found out the HARD way to NOT trust CineChest! I couldn't get back onto the webpage. So I called Customer Service.

    WHAT a JOKE!" The girl could not even confirm that my account "existed!" I ALSO could find no evidence of my account's existence!

    Then, I learned ( to my "horror! )that the NAMES that appeared on CineChest's registry of my credit card were NOT MY OWN!The names were Cynthia Mair and Wendy Vega! My name is J* Redmane!

    I don't even know who those people ARE! When I found this out, all the lights on my dashboard lit up like the 4th of July!

    I quickly went and CANCELLED my credit card! Now, I have to wonder what OTHER information Cynthia and Wendy may have obtained about me! And I can only HOPE that I don't still end up getting "billed" for this "subscription" when the 5 day "trial period" expires!

    I can't even PROVE that the account I opened at CineChest "EXISTS!" How can I shut it down, if I can't even prove that my CineChest account EXISTS?!?

    They have "no record" of it! They are in Manila ( that's right folks, the "PHILIPINES!")! Are these shysters going to keep coming back on me saying that I owe them money for my "account!?"( Unpaid monthly "dues?")I can't even PROVE that my just now opened account "EXISTS!"

    Man, I hope that this doesn't end up having to be settled IN COURT! Because I'm not paying them one rusty nickel!

    The trouble is that, just because I cannot PROVE that my account "exists", ... that dose not necessarily mean that it DOESN'T exist!

    I could end up owing those b******s money based on that "technicality!" And since I cannot prove that my account at CineChest doesn't exist, I'll have no way to SHUT IT DOWN! And Cynthia Mair and Wendy Vega's names seem to be "linked" to the CREDIT CARD that I used ( "MY" credit card, not theirs! )to open that account!

    And if the monthly bill comes to "ME", I could end up owing monthy "dues" on an account that I cannot even prove "EXISTS!"

    I can't even get back INTO it again to "USE" it! My "email" account ( according to Cinechest ) ALSO has 3 "UNFAMILIAR" names attached to it now!

    Now, I'm going to have to contact the Better Business Bureau, maybe talk to the police again, ... I now have to wonder just how "easy" it is for people like Cynthia and Wendy to get a person's Social security number!

    Folks, I think that this website is "SO" dangerous that we need to put a warning video about it on YouTube! Seriously!

    And don't you BELIEVE CineChest.com when they assure you that your "transactions" are SAFE and SECURE! That is a bald-faced "LIE!" ...take it from ME!

  • November 6, 2014 at 2:06 PM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, California, United States

    I also got tricked into signing up for Cinechest's website, after trying to watch one of my shows online. I was charged a 1$ fee without even doing anything like cancelling my account, and I also didn't know about the $49 charge for a subscription that many people have been unaware of.

    I found out about the scam here after noticing the "Cinechest scam" auto-finish on Google.

    Thank you, guys, for helping me dodge a bullet. I just called my bank so I could get back my dollar, or at least block that company so I can avoid losing fifty MORE dollars.

  • October 30, 2014 at 12:56 PM by an anonymous user from: Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

    I was unaware of being charged anything, I gave bank details only to look around and found out several days later I was charged £31.21 plus other charges of £1.50 and 85p several times.

    Will they go after more money and do you need to go online to disconnect yourself from them a total scam. Will you be alight if you change your bank card and cv2 number. Can you get your bank to block any other charges?

    • October 30, 2014 at 1:24 PM by info

      We do not know what they will do, but it is recommended that you contact your bank for information.

  • October 23, 2014 at 4:19 PM by an anonymous user from: Auckland, New Zealand

    Did anyone get charged a large amount after they cancelled their account?

  • September 5, 2014 at 3:26 PM by an anonymous user from: West Palm Beach, Florida, United States

    I too was tricked into paying one month of membership...but perhaps there have been enough complaints...when I stated "I want my money back," surprisingly I was told it would be refunded...we'll see...

  • September 2, 2014 at 12:28 PM by an anonymous user from: Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

    This is a scam. I never signed up for this and was alerted by my bank for fraudulent activity.

    First they charged 1.03 then 49.99. I never signed up or authorized any purchase. I've never even heard of them. So someone hacked something to get my debit card number which is closed now do to fraudulent activity. How dare anyone use me or anyone else to get money illegally.

  • August 28, 2014 at 11:10 PM by an anonymous user from: Marinette, Wisconsin, United States

    They are awful people.

  • August 24, 2014 at 4:45 PM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, California, United States

    Thanks..It helped save us from scam.

  • August 23, 2014 at 5:52 AM by an anonymous user from: Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

    I've been scammed as well.

  • June 29, 2014 at 12:12 AM by an anonymous user from: Kansas City, Missouri, United States

    I didn't even sign up for a free trial. I put my cc # in to be verified only! It said no charges would be on there.

    After I got in and saw the free trial and other memberships I didn't want them so I closed out of the browser only to find 1.03 taken out of my account from them!

    I called the number and they said they would cancel it and I said cancel what? I never signed up for anything. This is BS and with all these complaints why are they still in business? I got my 1.03 back but that's not the point.

    This is underhanded BS!

  • June 11, 2014 at 9:50 PM by an anonymous user from: Irvine, California, United States

    These Canadians messed with the wrong gal! This is theft people. The web site says "your credit card will not be charged".

    For verification my a** crack! I am so sick of these Canadians ripping us off. Priceline doubles the taxes you pay for travel and keeps all the profit.

    The more you spend the higher tax you give away to yet another Canadian online company. What's more...They are indignant when you want to know why they ripped you and the hotel, airline, car rental etc.,they will tell you its none of your business.

    Well guess what? The USA is looking at this and has major plans for shutting it down. Stay tuned.

  • May 17, 2014 at 11:08 AM by an anonymous user from: Clarksville, Tennessee, United States

    YES they are fraudulent! They only have OLD movies and they charge your card to cancel and for other things! STEER CLEAR!

  • March 23, 2014 at 11:56 AM by an anonymous user from: Milan, Lombardy, Italy

    I just signed up and I foolishly gave my credit card details. I'm blocking my credit card. Never sign up for free and if they ask for your credit card details: do not sign up! It is a fraud!

    • May 7, 2014 at 4:24 AM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

      I have been caught by this website too. I was unable to view the programme it offered. They said the trial was free, then immediately charged me. I sent a cancellation email, which they ignored, and continued to charge me. DO NOT USE

    • March 23, 2014 at 2:55 PM by info

      Report it to the police.

  • February 12, 2014 at 4:05 PM by an anonymous user from: Killara, New South Wales, Australia

    I also was caught by this service-if you can call it a service-when I found out by ringing my Credit Union. I found I had been charged A$59 - luckily I had kept all the information regarding this mob- I have got in contact with them on 1800068983-they wanted to know my last 4 numbers of the card- then I complained about their charge for a service I never received and demanded my refund and also to cancel my account- they (a Renee) said they would and refund my money back into my A/C within 1 to 15 days<br/>Lets hope they do!

  • January 31, 2014 at 4:40 AM by an anonymous user from: Solihull, England, United Kingdom

    Definitely a scam site. My bank had to put a stop on the monthly fee they started to charge me (unauthorised) because I could not even get into the site to watch movies, let alone cancel my subscription!

  • January 10, 2014 at 8:38 AM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

    I have also been scammed by this website. They have taken money from my account but if u speak to ur bank they will send u through to the fraud people and they will help you open a case and it will help shut this website down and stop people from getting scammed this needs to be dealt with

  • January 8, 2014 at 11:45 AM by an anonymous user from: Prague, Czech Republic

    Hi<br/>I have also been duped by this scam<br/>Has anyone an idea of the easiest way to get this money back.<br/>I have emailed info @cinichest.com but nothing as yet!<br/><br/>I cant see any contact numbers or 'unsubscribe' links

  • January 6, 2014 at 10:23 PM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    I am so glad I checked here first...Thanx to all that took the time to warn others. These slugs are tricky tricky<br/>Read their disclaimer VERY carefully...it tells you that no charges will be applied to "authenticate" your account.<br/>At the bottom of their page you can click on to "terms" scroll down to billing and you will find you will be charged after 5 days and every 30 days after that. <br/>No company needs your credit card number to confirm your address.

  • December 19, 2013 at 8:31 AM by an anonymous user from: Gambrills, Maryland, United States

    I too was also scammed by Cinechest they won't even answer my phone calls it just keeps going back to their mail menu no matter what number you hit. It's a scam they are not even in the USA so that makes everything all the more harder to get your money back or just stop billing its crazy 50 for the first month and 35 for any month after that

  • December 11, 2013 at 4:14 PM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

    So I finally thought I had found a trustworthy site to watch the series of American horror Story. Signed up and took me to just a movie based page where I couldn't find American horror story. The previous site kept telling me to sign up for free (in which I already did) so this cinechest secretly charged me $2 to sign up for my so called '5 day FREE trial'. I spent hours looking into this site and looking at comments.to cancel your subscription i tried calling them to complain, and I was immediately alerted that it would be charged...hung up then in the end payed $1 to unsubscribe. So p****e off why hasn't this place been closed down?!? I haven't received a confirmation email that they have got rid of my card details, I don't know what to do?!?

    • April 8, 2014 at 2:37 PM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

      I'm in the same situation. I cancelled right away when I found it fraudulent and also ended up paying $1. Just asking do they charge you anymore after you had unsubscribed?

  • December 3, 2013 at 3:00 PM by an anonymous user from: Luxembourg, Luxembourg

    Please how can I get my money back now? :-(

  • November 29, 2013 at 12:06 AM by an anonymous user from: Manama, Bahrain

    This is definitely a SCAM. I have disputed the charges with my credit card company. Continue to spread the word.

  • November 18, 2013 at 2:03 PM by an anonymous user from: West Palm Beach, Florida, United States

    Don't do it. I thought I was getting a free trial and was charged 49.50 and when I tried to cancel I called the number listed and it was a restaurant. I tried to send them an email and it would not open. Obviously a scam. They even charged a cancellation fee.

  • November 2, 2013 at 8:06 AM by an anonymous user from: Pasig, National Capital Region, Philippines

    Thanks for the info guys. i was about to give my card number because i trust easily.

  • October 29, 2013 at 11:34 AM by an anonymous user from: Fair Oaks, California, United States

    I was on tubeplus trying to watch a TV series. Yesterday, I needed only to find the series and click on the episode and it loaded and played flawlessly. It was the first day I tried the site. Today, none of the links of the series worked. I got a message saying, "FILE IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE." A link in the window said, "watch in HD now" Clicking on that link took me to a gray screen that said "fix-junky" on the top. The video appeared to be loading, but when I clicked on play, iI got this message, <br/><br/>"Our library can be streamed from certain countries only.<br/>Please, see if you are eligible to STREAM or DOWNLOAD our content by creating an account<br/>You must create a FREE account in order to STREAM or DOWNLOAD this movie."<br/><br/>Clicking on the "Create a free account now" button took me to screen that asked for an email, a password, and a password verification. Pressing the green "continue" button took me to Cinechest. As others stated, the site said it needed to verify my eligibility so it needed my credit card. I went through the trouble of signing up for a free account, only to find out they don't even have the tv series that linked me there-the site only has movies. I cancelled right away. What a disappointment and a waste of time. Totally false advertising. I will be watching my account for any charges.

  • July 22, 2013 at 11:53 PM by an anonymous user from: Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

    This is a con. I found the Media Player update attached to another legitimate program and found myself at their site asking me to update. When I saw the request for my credit card details, I closed the site window. On checking, I found the file C:\documents and settings\owner\local settings\application data\updater36928.exe had been installed on my machine and a process was running which I had to terminate using Task Manager before I could delete the file.

  • June 23, 2013 at 10:55 AM by info

    Please contact your bank and dispute the charges.

  • June 23, 2013 at 5:47 AM by an anonymous user from: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

    Dear All,

    I also cheated by Cinechest.com, they have never disclosed to me while sign up or something suddenly i seen my Visa statement i found 49.9$ charged. Please help me out how to get back my money.

    • February 24, 2014 at 9:03 AM by an anonymous user from: Port of Spain, Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

      i was also cheated the same amt on my credit card for two months would like to get my money back and when i am trying to unsubscribe it isn't allowing me...

      • February 28, 2014 at 7:46 AM by an anonymous user from: Bolton, England, United Kingdom

        You will have to cancel ur card that's what I have done, not sure it will work, but the other option is to close your account and open a new one, that's my next step.
