Videostripe.com is a Fraudulent Movie Streaming or Watching Website
November 13, 2016
Videostripe.com, which owners claim is the next-generation of video-on-demand (VOD) provider that simplifies movie watching for users all over the world, is a scam. The website doesn't deliver the movies it promises and trick people into registering for free or trial accounts, and still charges them after they have cancelled within or before the trial period expires. Online users who have already signed up for Videostripe services are advised to check their credit card statements keenly and report unauthorized charges to their banks.

Videostripe.com - The Fraudulent Movie Streaming Website
After acquiring payment from their members, Video Stripe never delivers what their members have paid for. All they will do is to show advertisements in order to generate revenue, although members have already made payments. Also, Videostripe offers a computer program which is bundled with various adware and potentially unwanted programs, which will hijack online users’ web browsers and redirect them to their website and may even display annoying advertisements. If your web browser constantly redirects or goes to www.videostripe.com, it means that your computer has become infected with the VideoStripe adware or potentially unwanted programs. To remove the adware or potentially unwanted programs, click here to use a program called AdwCleaner.
After my wife signed up for the free account, she received an email which stated that if she didn't cancel, she would be charged monthly, no amount was specified. During the whole account creation process there was no mention of any charge or how much they secretly intended to charge. She immediately canceled the account after receiving the email.
They charged her credit card $39.95 about 10 days after she cancelled the account. We didn't even know she got charged until our bank statement showed a mysterious entry listed as "MovieEase.com". The phone number listed on the transaction was incomplete, missing the last digit, as you would expect with a scam.
I have now researched the company and found many complaints and poor ratings that have confirmed this to be a scam.
In the end, we canceled our credit card and filed a dispute with our issuing bank.
Be advised: Research any website unknown to you before entering a credit card number. The 5 minutes you spend searching the internet is way less than the hours necessary for filing a claim, cancelling your credit card, and then writing negative reviews to try and help other people.
