    I too have had money taken out of my account of $88 yet I did not at any time watch or join the site.

    I do not know how they got my card details.

    This is so fraudulent and wrong.

    my Daughter and I struggle in life as it is let alone this happening.

    We have no money for the next 4 days.

    I have cancelled my cards but would desperately want my money back...

    "Hello,

    Thank you for the information provided concerning this malicious website.
    Recently they have charged my credit card with almost 50 eur, although I have not given any permission to do so. The only thing I have ever done was when I was looking for a movie to watch, and on youtube I found it, and then from this website there was a link that brought me directly to this malicious pickaflick website. They displayed info that they have the movie and asked to pay for watching it. Therefore, I entered my credit card details (oops, sorry for that now, if I only knew...

    I am very careful about providing my personal data, but wanted to watch the movie lawfully from the one who claims to have the right to show it!), but then the website started "experiencing problems" and the operation never succeeded, it just crashed and crashed several times...

    I have not given any permissions for any monthly deductions or so. This happened about a month and a half ago, and today I noticed that my credit card had been charged unilaterally by this pickaflick.

    I had to block the credit card, there was no other way to avoid the payments, as I did not want to visit the malicious website once again, where they ask to delete the account in order to stop charging payments. I hope that the relevant institutions are notified of this fraudulent website and it will be closed, because it is still working for some reason and the people are getting robbed...

    Pick a flick is taking money from my credit card, and I don't know what it's for. If I subscribed by mistake, how can I cancel?

    • Posted: Sep 22, 2018 at 8:54 AM by info

      You cannot trust them to cancel, open a dispute with your bank to have your money refunded and then cancel your credit card and get a new one to prevent them from charging you in the future.

    I have no recollection of signing up for it and when I tried to find it It said no evidence of my account.

    I will be taking this to my lawyer and the media if this cannot be resolved. Thank you Jenny."

    I have been scammed too. My credit card company sent me a new card and the c..ts still managed to extort money.

    How is this even possible? I have now told my cc company to close my account and I will no longer bank with them after their abysmal attitude towards me over this fraud!

    my computer screen is frozen to their site and all I did was click on their ad, I didn't even sign up and I'm unable to click off even when I unplug my computer and sign back on. They are holding my computer hostage in a sense, if that isn't unscrupulous I don't know what is then.

        If you give them your credit card information they will continuously and fraudulently charge it without your consent.

        delete


    • Posted: May 28, 2018 at 8:04 AM by info

      Dispute the charges with your bank and have them cancel the transaction and refund your money.

      Remember, the website is being operated by scammers who will never refund your money and who will continue to charge your card, even when they claimed they have canceled your membership.

    A charge appeared on my credit card, which I do not recognize. Upon investigation, you gave me all the data of my credit card or my email. They inform me that the service, supposedly contracted, was being used by the I.P. 18923816272, that I.P. It has never been used and is available. What's up? You are committing fraud because I have the talk in my power and it is the only charge that I do not recognize, because I have never acquired your service. I have long been with Netflix and Roku, why would I need an additional service?

    I completely agree with the content of this article. Moreover, I have personally suffered this type of recharges in my credit card without establishing (at least, consciously), any type of link with this web page. I have initiated the procedures through my bank manager to request the return of the charges received. I have also had to suspend the use of my credit card.

    Hello,

    I canceled 3 times with PICKAFLICK.CO before the trial period, but I was charged $31,634. At first, I did not know what it was until I found out it was supposed to be for the following month. I went back to claim and the same thing happened this month, so I had to change my card. They are some fresh sinverguenzas, cigarettes that gives cancer.

    They say they do not charge, but it is a lie. They should be put on youtube so that the whole world does not use their website. The bad thing is that you have to change the card that had it more than 3 years ago, it is a nuisance. I hope it does not happen to anybody else, thanks for the opportunity to give my opinion.
