PC Tools problem

Likes # 0

PC Tools recently made an automatic deduction from one of my credit cards albeit my account registered with them shows that automatic renewal is 'off'

I have contacted them and provided as requested full details of the debit transaction--I have no idea what it was for but the sum of £39.99 was taken

Not a dickybird out of their Customer Services side since 18th Feb despite 5 hasteners although I can see my Query Number is still 'open' when I log into PC Tools.

I have reported the matter to my credit card company-not because I believe my card has been hacked but because PC Tools seem unwilling to recognise they have made a mistake and refund the money.

Anyone else had similar problems with PC Tools?

Hi tigertop2,

An email would have been sent to you prior to the funds being debited, notifying you that your subscription to a PC Tools product was due for renewal. It may have landed in your 'spam' folder - or it may have been sent to an old account if your original registration with PC Tools was many years ago.

Please send me a private message with your ticket number and the email address you used to originally register a PC Tools product (probably Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus or PC Tools Performance Toolkit), and I will investigate with our customer support team.

Alternatively, you can log in to 'MyAccount' at the PC Tools website: https://secure.pctools.com/myaccount/ and contact our customer support team through 'MySupport' - using either LiveChat or our freephone support line.

Apologies for the inconvenience,

Richard Clooke PC Tools

HI Richard

I don't think private messages are an option now since the PCA site was revised but I can tell you the PC TOOLS message ref is [12-048-00441] [EN] Billing / Cancel Subscription?.

I have checked on my account regularly and can see that PC Tools have received all the data requested about 3 weeks ago but the query is still marked as 'open'

I only use one email address for accounts like this and it should be seen on my account.

Appreciate your intervention
