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.
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:

"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."
