Does anyone know of an organisation "MBCONTACT.COM"?
A friend has been billed by them but I suspect a scam of some kind because putting that in a browser address bar or a search engine produces no results.

Thanks rdave13, looks like my friend has been ripped off as I suspected. Perhaps his bank/card issuer will be sympathetic. I don't know what he clicked on but he was getting a version of AVG at the time.

Without going way back in the PCA archives, isn't this the same people (with new change of name)who had a rather bad press and media event?.

The FE might have better recall of events, as he gave a radio interview at the time!.

So is it or isn't it a legit organisation? It certainly billed my friend for something he hadn't bought (Nero?)while he was on an AVG site downloading their free anti-virus package.

If your friend has been billed for something he dident order,the answers obviouse.Sometimes on sites you have to be carefull that you click on the correct link.

They used to bill folk for visits to Porn Sites.

The Porn Site had been visited but the T&C's not read. To avoid the charge it was necessary to cancel Admission Rights (which were free for three days) within a certain Period.

Not a clue what he clicked on tullie - and neither has he now! Nothing had been debited to his card & he's got his card issuer to cancel the card to be safe.
