Beware of www.playcapt.com - It is a Fraudulent Website

The website "www.playcapt.com" is a fraudulent one. The website which claims it will deliver all your favorite movies, music, and games across all your favorite platforms, 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, run the risk of their cards being fraudulently charged for undetermined amounts, even when they have cancelled their subscriptions.

They (playcapt.com) 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 playcapt.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.

    I was redirected to this site on my phone browser after completing an online survey sent by text and offering a free gift.

    I became suspicious and tried to exit the site but they somehow got credit card details and started by taking a small debit then followed up with a larger one alerted by credit card company.

      Contact your bank for help. Dispute the charges with your bank to have them cancel the fraudulent transactions and refund your money.

      Then, you may need to get a new credit card to prevent them from continuously charging you.

    Subject: Playcapt.com Claim

    Dear Playcapt customer service,

    I note on my credit card statement for 15th May that Playcapt stole money from my account for £43.88. I have reported this to my credit card dispute team and they are going to investigate into this for me to terminate any future money being taken out of my account for this playcapt fraudulent website.

    I have researched into playcapt, and it s fraudulent website that has been automatically installed using website browsers and in contains music, movie and game access somehow. I use Microsoft Edge. I have you tubed how to remove this from my browsing history (recommended by my bank dispute team) and will do so shortly,; however I am very concerned and worried as to how you gained access to my credit card details to steal money from me for this playcapt website that I 100 % do not want to associate with. I have no idea what you are and do not wish to continue with this service.

    I will appreciate a full refund of £43.88 as soon as possible please.

    Many thanks, and look forward to hearing from you very soon to settle this.

    Yours Faithfully

    Abby."

    Don't subscribe! This company fraudulently charges your account even after cancellation.

    If you have subscribed, call your bank right away. You will probably have to cancel your card to avoid further charges.

    If you were looking to subscribe, you are lucky to have avoided an unpleasant ordeal.

    For those who have subscribed, call your bank right away. You will probably have to cancel your card to avoid further fraudulent charges. For those who were thinking of subscribing, you are lucky to have avoided an unpleasant ordeal.

    I had set myself up for a one-month free trial but canceled less than three hours later -- or at least I thought I had.

    The tab on my browser had frozen over after clicking the "confirm cancellation" button, which was alarming.

    When I tried to log back in, I saw a pop-up saying that the account information no longer exists. Not being able to sign back in, I assumed that my account had indeed been canceled. My mistake.

    My credit card was charged five days later for $65.61 and I found this article shortly after. I then called PlayCapt and was told that a refund was not possible. I called my bank and canceled my card.

    As this is the first and last time I have been robbed in this way ($66.95) because I don't usually put my card details on the net. Stoopid me. Play cap.com opened on the page I thought was a Movieflix free membership application. So beware of the site theft too. I have had to cancel my credit card and only knew of the fraud by play apt when my bank sent me a fraud alert on the debit of the money for nothing... Very upsetting and so wrong.

    Hope their karma is very bad.

    Bank said they can do nothing but issue a new card to prevent further bogus charges

    Received via email:

    "PLAYCAPT.COM & POPPLAYZ.COM has deducted $49.95 each within 2 days of each other while I opted for a 1 month free trial with only the first one and immediately cancelled it too."

    Thank your for the info, unfortunately they already charged my credit card twice for 2 different games, so now I have the joy of trying to get the money back from my bank.

    I have never asked for any movies online and I don't do online shopping can this be a kind of hacking or what. What can I do since they have already taken about $65 from my acc x 2. Please help.

      Contact your bank and ask them to cancel the transaction and refund your money. Let your bank know that the website fraudulently charged your credit card. Also, let them know that the website is being operated by online scammers. You may need to cancel your credit card and get a new one to prevent the same fraudulent website from continually charging it.
