Videostripe.com is a Fraudulent Movie Streaming or Watching Website

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

Videostripe.com

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.

    Here in May, 2020, they've just done the same to me. I never requested their service, and did not sign up for an account. They withdrew, then deposited $1 from two separate companies, including a $0.03 international taxation fee. Two weeks later, they deducted $49.99 from my account, along with a $1.50 Intl Txn Fee. I missed that transaction on my statement. A month later, they tried to deduct another $49.99, but this time I was notified by my bank's Fraud Alert.

    I contacted the company and cancelled whatever account they had on file, and requested a refund. To their credit, that was done within a couple days.

    Criminals are clever. Be smart...and diligent.

    How is this company able to sign people up and charge their accounts when they themselves have not without going to jail or at the least being shut down?! Is there not anyone who can actually do something about it?

    Does this company have anything to do with stop motion studio app?

    What's with this vifeostripe, it's supposed to be free, yet everyone is being charged different amounts!

    Somebody needs to report this fraudulent company. But to who, I don't even know where they are based out of.

    I DID NOT SIGN UP for this service "Videostripe" but they have charged my husband's Visa (which I'm not on, by the way) using my email address.

    When I protested via their online chat support, they insisted I enrolled using my cellphone as confirmation (I archive my messages and confirmations on my cell and there's nothing, which I told them) plus - I didn't enroll, which I also told them.

    By charging my husband's card - which, as I say, I don't have access to - I believe they've committed a fraudulent act.

    They finally said they would cancel the account as of today and I could fight with the bank to get the initial amount back (given that it's not my card, nor my bank - won't be me doing the fighting ... nice, huh?)

    VIDEOSTIPE IN MY OPINION ARE A SCAM! BEWARE.

        They did the same to me! They charged my husbands card and I was not even aware nor subscribed with anything!

        I am from the Philippines. They are really a total scam! BOGUS!

        I hope there is someone out there to help us get back money!

    I didn't even sign up with them, but they still pinched around $60 from my account.

    I registered with a credit card issued by biolife, a plasma donation facility, with 0$ on it, I dont plan on using it again so they can charge all they want, there is no money to scam out of it.

    D**n it, all I wanted was free points for my game -_- Never doing that again and now I have an unauthorized charge of $69.61

    • March 6, 2017 at 7:28 PM by an anonymous user from: Ball Ground, Georgia, United States

      Same here - did you cancel your account with them? Also how many days did it take for the unauthorized transaction to show up on your account?

  • February 24, 2017 at 4:24 AM by an anonymous user from: Auckland, New Zealand

    I was scammed too, I asked for my money back and they gave it back but then took it out again. Smh
