Beware of www.tzarmedia.com - it is a Fraudulent Website

Beware of www.tzarmedia.com - it is a Fraudulent Website

The website "www.tzarmedia.com", which claims its users can play games, listen music, read books, watch movies and download software directly in your browser or download on your phone, computer and tablet, is being condemned or criticized by online users who have tried the service. So, is Tzarmedia a scam or not? Based on the information that we have gathered about the website "www.tzarmedia.com" from our research, we have considered it to be a deceptive website and do not recommend using it.

Please continue below.

Let us start with their cancellation policy. The website claims that they offer a 5-day trial period, but they will force you to use their “Express Online Cancellation service,” which will charge you $1. Please see the cancellation instructions below.

The Website's Deceptive Cancellation Request

Cancel your account immediately with our Express Online Cancellation service. Paying a small fee of just $0.99 ($1.00 during trial) will push your cancellation request to the top of the queue so it is effective immediately. You will receive an email confirming the details of your cancellation shortly after.

This is a very tricky way of deceiving people in a legal way. How can a company or organization offer a free trial and then ask their customers to pay a fee to cancel before it ends. And, why is there is an Online Express cancellation service that the company claims will put a request at the top of the queue. I think the owner of www.tzarmedia.com takes its users for fools, or is just outright scamming them.

Also, the website advertise hundreds of movies, books, games and music titles that are not available on their website. They use the deceptive advertisements to trick online users into visiting their website.

We have gotten a lot of complaints about the website, which is similar to www.lilplay.com and have listed some of them below.

Some of the Complaints We Have Received About TZarmedia

  • "Signed up for free trial, and I was forced to give credit info to use free service. Did not find any interesting movies. I immediately tried to cancel and was urged to pay for "Express Cancel" I worked around this screen and cancelled for free. Now I must watch my credit card to be sure I am not charged anyway. Several people have complained they were charged even after cancellation was requested."

  • "Kept switching websites/trade-names, etc. I foolishly gave credit card information and what came up was a message indicating that my card was already in use, etc. and that I should use another (different) card. Where is it supposed to stop?"

  • "Fake/SCAM/Credit Card Frauder, money-hungry and unethical beneficiary operation - working trough ad-baiter/redirector/clicktrough hunter domains, posing as download site, such as the following route:

    georgischekunst .de -> readebook.club -> bestbooklibrary.com / urbooklibrary.com -> tzarmedia.com
    Also involving: histats.com [Domains by Proxy, 2006], ad-center.com [WHOIS PRIVACY PROTECTION SERVICE, 2002] and infra.systems [Whois Privacy Protection Service, 2014]

    Promptly replying here with default "we are sorry/contact us" message, like they care. They only care for money....

  • "What a rip off!! Negative rating from me!!!! You have designed their website in a way that manipulate and trick people into paying by saying with free sign up that promise won't charge people!! But, in fact, when I clicked through the website to sign up I unknowing AGREE to subscribe and donate by clicking CONTINUE button!!! Tomorrow calling my CC to stop any payment after $3 that I have to pay!! Horrible horrible fales advertisement!!!

    With the item that I unknowing subscribed, the choices they have are decades and decades old movies or books. 90% of the movies I have never heard of. I cannot believe I fall this!!!"

  • "I was directed to sign up with this site to watched titles that were still in the theaters. I signed up for a five month membership, which was $15.99. I never received a confirmation email for my membership or a receipt showing a charge. After checking my bank account I was charged $25.94! a $9.99 convenience fee and a $1.00 charge for a five day trial???! And they only show extremely outdated titles, most of which I had never heard before. I cancelled less than 30 minutes from signing up for my membership. Now it's going to take 10 days to get my money back. She claimed that where ever I was directed from are not affiliated and she doesn't know why I was directed to TzarMedia. She told me not to call my bank and maybe the confirmations went to spam, which I checked and they did not. BEWARE of this site.netflix is cheaper, has newer flicks and shows, and is more reputable."

  • "I was searching for FREE eBook and was directed to tzarmedia.com. The first thing did is ask me for a donation to Unicef. One has to click the donation before one can get in their site. Once in, I am charged with $2.95 for a trial membership without my knowledge. The site only gathers all FREE BOOKs one can easily find such as Google Book. The software provided for download is Trial Versions or otherwise FREE DOWNLOAD and then one has to pay for it later.

    I went to the tzarmedia.com website and found out that if youe do not cancel the Trial Membership, you will automatically charged with $34.99 full membership. So I cancel it, and I was charged with another $0.99 for cancellation.

    This site is very DECEITFUL and UNTRUSTWORTHY."

  • "Complete and utter scam ( please sue me a-holes) which eventually leads through from a link on YouTube. There are NO MOVIES/FILMS because you provide your credit card details, get charged an extortionate amount on a continuous payment authority which may be difficult to cancel and at the end of all that: the film never existed in the first place."

    "I have been threatened by tzarmedia.com. I've just noticed on June 5, 2017, after going to the bank and made transactions and found out that my money's been withdrawn from my bank account. Couldn't believe my eyes. They started stealing my money from December 7 2015, until June 5, 2017. The total amount was 35,000.00 dollars. I got into shock."

    The charge from Tzarmedia was substituted by an identical charge (14,95 USD) from geeker.com at the beginning of 2017 !

    I have just noticed on my bank statements that I am paying £11.95 per month to Tzarmedia.com.

    I have no reason that I know of for this. How can I stop it?


    • Posted: Apr 27, 2017 by info

      Contact your bank for help. Let them cancel the current transactions, refund your money and block future transactions from the fraudulent website.

    Tzarmedia is now trading as geeker.com. I was billed from them and never signed up at all. I have cancelled and was told I would be refunded in full.

    "I agree with all the comments about Tzarmedia. Charged $AU1.35 to cancel, 8 minutes after I'd registered for the Free 5-day trial. A small amount of course, but does seem like a scam. The 'small print' could warn that a nominal fee will be charged. Sorry I didn't check 'onthelinealerts' beforehand. Thank you for your service. Christine TR"

    Has never shown up on my mailed bank statements! If it had it would've been canceled - my card that is!

    TzarMedia offers free copies of MY books - but without my knowledge or permission. I get no royalties from them. Where did they get those books? I can only surmise they have pirated the books some way, or they do not actually have the books and it is a scam for those who sign up. Either way, it is illegal. They do not have any rights to sell, or give away, my books. J. R. Callan


  • Posted: Nov 28, 2016 by an anonymous user from or near: Fall River, Massachusetts, United States

    I signed up and the new movies wasn't even on the list. I didn't even know they charge a dollar to sign up; it says free. I tried to get back in and they said my account didn't exist when I put my email and password in the site. It is a scam and everyone should be aware. Did anyone else have a problem signing in too?


  • Posted: Nov 27, 2016 by an anonymous user from or near: California City, California, United States

    These guys are a scam! I signed up because I wanted to watch a movie they said they had. Then after I gave them my credit card info for a free trial, which is bull to begin with, but whatever, I became a member and then they didn't even have that movie! So, I went ahead and checked other stuff out for the day which they had NOTHING of that was any good. So I went to cancel the 5 day free trial.

    You go to their website and first it say's you will be charged .99 cents if I cancel it online and for an immediate cancellation because otherwise it can take up to like 4 business day's to cancel. Wouldn't that be past the 5 day free trial period? So I call instead just to have a lady that was rude to me because after telling me they were going to charge my credit card for one dollar still. I asked why. She said just to see if it's valid. I said "Didn't you do that in the beginning?" She said yes. So then I asked why are you doing it again then and why now when I am cancelling the trial period? Why would anything on my credit card be touched and especially now.

    That's when she wouldn't answer me and just repeated herself with what they are going to do to my credit card! But a little annoyed now and louder. That makes no sense! I tried to ask other questions too but she "acted" ignorant of the whole thing. Like I just work here kind of thing. I have never has such a crappy free trial before! Now let's see if I still get charged for the whole membership. I have a feeling I will be. It is company's like this that makes people so grumpy and paranoid with online deals.


    • Posted: Nov 27, 2016 by info

      Call your bank and ask them to refund your money because you were tricked by the fraudulent website. You may also want them to give you a new credit card, because the fraudulent website will continue to charge your current card. We have gotten a lot of complaints about reoccurring credit card charges,although members have canceled their subscription or membership.

    "Dear Mr/Mrs

    I am a student in University College Dublin.

    This Monday, 21th November, I wanted to download a paper from a website I am not clear what the website is now. It told me that I need to be a membership of TzarMedia.

    I saw there were 5 days free trial, so I registered and fulfilled my credit card account. But today, when I check my account, I knew that I was forced to pay 45.5 Eur for the membership.

    As a student, I never have this experience before. What do I should do now?

    Can you help me to ask my fees back?

    Kind Regards
    LI Pengtao/Allan"


    • Posted: Nov 27, 2016 by info


      Only your bank can help you get your money back. Please contact them immediately, and let them know that you were tricked into using your credit card on a fraudulent website.

      They can block the transaction, and may need to give you a new credit card.

    please help with this fraud!


    • Posted: Nov 15, 2016 by info

      Tell your bank that the fraudulent website is being operated by cybercriminals, who are stealing their victims' money. So, you cannot ask them to refund your money.

      Your bank should be the one helping you get back your money.

      It is hard to catch those cybercriminals because most are operating in countries where it is difficult to find and prosecute them.

      Also, please ask your bank to cancel the credit card that has been used on the website, to stop further charges.

    "I am looking to download a movie and ask me to register first on a free registration online to access the site and was diverted to Tzarmedia and will charge $0 for the membership. I already encoded my card details and confirmed that I missed that after it expire in 5 days trial, it will automatically go to premium and will charge me $18.99/month.I immediately look for cancellation and they will charge me express cancellation of $0.99, but I requested for a cancellation thru email and will take 3 days to process but my email and password became invalid.

    I try to cancel using my credit card detail and email address and was told the subscription was successfully cancelled and will receive email notification after 3 days for the cancellation. I will wait after 3 days and will check my account if charge or not. This site should be banned!!! they are only fooling people to access their site for free and taking money. Please help me on this and what should I do if still not cancelled.

    Thank you."

    Wow. I am so glad I had read the reviews on this website. I had read the terms and service. It didn't say it would charge you a cancelation fee.
    After reading the reviews, I have decided not to go with this website.
    Thank you so much for all the reviews.
    I'm so sorry people were mislead

    Please, it was a fool of me to fall for the deceit of TzarMedia. I want to cancel my subscription, but I received no confirmation email. I wanted to delete my payment method, but I don't know how. Please help!


    • Posted: Jul 9, 2016 by info

      You cannot cancel your subscription or delete your payment method. The scammers have your information already. Please contact your bank or credit card company immediately, and let them know that you unknowingly used your credit card on a fraudulent website. They will tell you what to do.

    Yes, "tzarmedia.com" has my cc details and once instantly charged me 1:49. And there are no free movies or anything! You have to go from trial to premium. When I went to remove my cc details I couldn't, and it is hard to cancel. I am worried and might cancel my card ASAP.

      I was taken in too and gave my card number. I didn't activate the account, but was still worried, rang my credit card company and they cancelled my card straight away and made a note of Tzarmedia..in case they still tried to take money.
