Ya so I just got my credit card statement and NORTON ANNUAL RENEWAL 877-294-5265 CA $49.99 is on there. I have never owned a Norton product in my life. I think maybe my credit card has been compromised. I am going to have this charge reversed and a new card issued to me.

Gonna start doing full virus and spyware removal procedure on my computer right now.

Anybody else seeing this lately?

Do you mean "RENEWAL" and not "REMOVAL" ?

Is it possible that you have installed/renewed a clients Norton AV on their behalf using your credit card (then charged them for your callout fee plus the renewell accordingly)?

Its possible that work you did a year ago renewed under your credit card again.

I've read too many horror stories of Norton automatically charging people's credit cards. I'd probably just uninstall Norton. =D I did a quick search and apparently this happens to a lot of people. Unauthorized charges that come out of nowhere. I called my credit card company and they told me that the service number for the people who charged me was closed for the day so I need to call them back tomorrow morning in order to dispute it. If they can't reverse it I am gonna throw a fit to get them to fix it for me >=|

They probably do it because people who use Norton might not think twice about seeing that charge on their card.

I am gonna find out exactly what is going on tomorrow.

What was the phone number that appeared on your statement? Have you tried googling it and seeing if anything comes up. If its a real number for Symantec, google should return with their pages. If not, there might be forum posts of people with the same issue.

Well I just got off the phone with my credit card company and they told me that I was also charged last year by Norton. Now I am pissed as hell because I NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER use Norton. I hate their guts. I would never buy their product virus protection and firewall products. I would never give them my credit card number because I know how they are with charging people for stuff they don't use.

I am VERY MAD right now and I am calling this number to get ALL of my money back. I'll keep you guys updated.

Okay so apparently somebody had my CC#, address, and phone number and they used it to purchase Norton and I was also charged two renewals...

The Norton account was registered under some wacky email address that I have never ever heard of in my life. In fact, the email address is kind of just a bunch of random letters at a random domain name. The only refund I was able to get was for $49.99... The rep told me that if I was checking my statements each month I could have called earlier and had the other fees reversed. The guy also said that Norton sent out an email every time I was charged. SO I DEFINITELY DID NOT REGISTER THIS BECAUSE I WOULD NOTICE STUPID NORTON EMAILING ME ABOUT RENEWING THEIR CRAPPY PRODUCT!!!!!!!!

I am not happy. :mad::mad::mad:

I am also relieved that they didn't go out and buy a refrigerator and new TV. But then I'd probably notice a couple thousand dollars appearing on my credit card... lol

Did the guy that said there is a notification email know that you had never heard of the wacky email address before he said that?

Well look at the funny side of it. Some moron out there actually paid for Norton Antivirus. I mean, I'm sorry they used your credit card, but lets just hope Norton screwed up their computer and now they are worse off than when they started.

Bad Karma ! :D

OUCH!!! It is bad enough your cc was compromised but to have it used to pay for Norton. That just isn't right.:eek:

Dispute the paytment with the card company, I had this when I was overseas, a transaction appeared for my home and I was on holiday! The cc sorted it.

As for Norton, I wouldn't it if it was free!
