Playgr8 is a Scam or Fraudulent Online Streaming Website

Playgr8 located at www.playgr8.com is a fraudulent website. The website which claims that online users can watch movies, listen to music and play games, is similar to the fraudulent websites www.geeker.com, lilplay.com, and tzarmedia.com. Online users who have used their credit cards on the fraudulent website (playgr8) run the risk of their cards being fraudulently charged for undetermined amounts, even when they have canceled their subscriptions.

Playgr8 at www.playgr8.com

They (playgr8) claim not to charge your credit card for the trial period but will do so anyway, even if you cancel before the trial period is up. Also, they will charge you to cancel your free registration, and will periodical charge your credit card for an undetermined amount of money. And, the website doesn't have some movies, books, and music it has advertised. I think this is another trick used to lure potential victims to the website.

Online user who have already subscribed to playgr8.com, are asked to contact their credit card company or bank for help to prevent the fraudulent website from fraudulently charging their credit cards, or refund their money if their cards were already charged.

    11/01/2021 MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA I have just just got my card charged for a free subscription from PLAYGR8.COM that I didn't even want. I only wanted a copy of a FREE manual. I didn't even get the manual. WESTPAC (my bank) wouldn't help me other than cancel the card to avoid future charges.

    I was a victim of this scammer.

    One day I received a message from my credit card bank that US$ 49.95 was charged on my credit card.

    I went to investigate and found out that it was PLAYGR8.COM. I was being billed for a "premium subscription" which I couldn't even recall.

    All I remember is that I simply registered on a website to watch a sport's event through live streaming. I only registered because of the clause that I would only be charged after the free trial if I like and continue with the subscription, for which I did not.

    I did not even watch because I could not find the sports event. That particular event was not even on the streaming channels.

    So I wrote them a letter to cancel that particular subscription and refund the amount on my credit card since what they did was illegal.

    They replied that since I did not cancel the free trial it was immediately upgraded to 'premium subscription' but they promised to offer me a refund.

    They refunded US$2 less of the total amount.

    Fine. Case closed or so I thought. Little did I know that it was merely a cover up.

    When I checked my credit card statement I noticed that next to the refund, a similar amount of US$49.95 was also debited from my credit card on the same day the refund was made.

    This time, however, it was under different name - MUSICZUM.com.

    Further investigation revealed that PLAYGR8.com and MUSICZUM.com are one and the same. Again I wrote them a complaint and their reply was exactly identical but this time they did not offer any refund and continuous follow up rendered no subsequent reply.

    (As a precautionary measure I had my credit card cancelled and I requested a new credit card from bank issuer.)

    I don't even know when or how the playgr8 get hold of my bank detail. I didn't realise it until I got the bank statement, they charged me twice (14.September2020,$70.58, 14 October 2020 another $71. Please, some help to tell me how to get rid of this?

    • October 15, 2020 at 11:03 AM by info

      Open a dispute with your bank to have your money refunded. Then, cancel the card they are charging and get a new one to stop the unwanted charges.

    Does anyone have the support email for this fraudulent website? playgr8... I didn't order anything and they billed my creditcard, I don't even have any idea how they got a hold of it. The site is blocked in my country due to being fraudulent, I can't even visit it, and the page playgr8.com/support doesn't exit (which was stated in the billing).

    If anyone has any info, please post it.

    Thank you so much!

    25/9/19 URGENT To ALL UPDATED information on this falsely advertised site for "FREE" I cancelled in the same day or night as it was here in Queensland when I was searching for a certain movie, tv series, the page kept displaying that they had it so I accepted and seconds later redirected to an offer for $1.51 xtra.

    I can get all movies and tv downloaded etc etc and not signed to contract RIGHT? NOT HAPPENING JAN... Just saw my account and saw a debit of $1.51 and I cancelled? OK so I will follow steps with Bank and clear any extensions or links to to this site.

    BEST TO FOLLOW ALL STEPS BUT BE AWARE OF FALSE SITES OFFERING TO REMOVE THIS SITE AS THEY MIGHT HOLD YOUR ACTIVITY UNTIL YOU PURCHASE THEIR ANTI MALWARE PROGRAM OK?

    They have charged me 150 USD and I can't log in with any of my email accounts. It says there is no account with that email. Is it possible to block only one payment or do I need to block my card and get a new one?

    • August 16, 2019 at 9:58 AM by info

      Yes, cancel the card and get a new one.

  • April 26, 2019 at 10:56 AM by an anonymous user from: Brussels, Belgium

    Thanks for this service. Is there any way I can get my moneyback? I blocked my creditcard, of course. Rik

      Open a dispute with your bank to have your money refunded.

    Thank you for alerting me to this fraudulent site. Unfortunately for me I've already been charged. I just had to be doing my last-minute Christmas shopping with a cart load of necessities and stocking stuffers for my kids and my pets with the last of my cash I had confidently budgeted for the holiday and sadly my card was declined.

    Embarrassed, I left the store and returned home empty-handed. Now, I'm unsure if this charge was made by the playgr8 scammers bc it read CADWELL GREEN COFFEE - $88.97, however, playgr8 is the only subscription I cancelled before the trial ended. So I wanted to sign into the account I created and in doing so came across this article amongst many others claiming fraud and viruses.

    So thank you again for the information... Perhaps, we'll be lucky and our hard-earned money will be returned... But it still wouldn't make up for the empty stockings on this Christmas Morning. I hope Justice is served. Thank you.

    Received via email:

    "Hi,

    These are real fraudulent scammers: they promised not to charge credit card but immediately did so.

    I unsubscribed immediately but am not sure they will delete my info and continue to skim me."

  • May 11, 2018 at 4:24 PM by an anonymous user from: Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, United States

    playgr8 tried to charge my credit card for 49.95 after I visited movie site; I filled out info until I got to 2nd page(evidently its to late once you go to page where price is listed they already have your info) where I saw what I would be charged every month so I did not submit my information and clicked out of the site.

    But, yet they tried to charge my card, thank god I only use for trips to the dollar stores so I can keep track of that spending!

    Then I get email from my bank saying they declined great8 attempts to charge my card. this company is nothing but fraudulent in their business practices... beware

  • March 5, 2018 at 1:57 AM by an anonymous user from: Mechelen, Flanders, Belgium

    I have this morning on my bill (card via COFIDIS) determined that 2 payments were made on;

    23/1/18 PURCHASE 1901 18667780119 PLAYGR8.COM CARD 49.95 euros

    21/2/18 PURCHASE 1902 "" 49.95 euros

    I have informed COFIDIS of this and I also expect them to explain how this can happen.

    What can I do about this that this does not happen anymore and I can get my money back?

    Please return a reply.

    Regards

    Anneke.

      I have two payments taken from my card and cannot find any web site or any place to contact, They were on 25th Feb and again on 25th March, for $70.42, any help would be appreciated, Joan

    • March 5, 2018 at 7:03 AM by info

      Dispute the charges with your bank. Have them cancel the transactions and refund your money.

      You may also need to cancel your current credit card and get a new one.
