Apparently they had signed her up for a 'club membership' without her consent. We had four of these charges by the time I noticed. I called the number on the charge and had them reversed. I'm considering calling my bank as well, to make sure no NEW charges get filed.
There was no problem reversing the charges, though the woman I spoke to was VERY terse and rude. It was pretty clear she was used to getting these kind of calls on a regular basis. She barely spoke clearly to me and kept treating me as if I was angry, regardless of how calmly I asked my questions. She snapped at me, sighed a lot, and would continue to read things off faster then I could understand them.
I've worked phones before; I don't envy her job. Which is why I always try to be reasonable and polite when I have to call a call-center. But it didn't matter what I said or how I said it; simply calling her was apparently 'unreasonable' and she was going to be rude to me in response.
They claim to be reversing the charges and say it will take up to seven days and etc for it to go through, though she was VERY adamant that they cannot refund the charges that were actually tied to game purchases, she would only get angry with me when I would ask which charges these were.
I've asked my wife never to use that site again, as I am venomously against any website which automatically charges my card in that fashion. And I'm reporting here as well, so others know to beware. They may sell games, but watch your account. They'll sign you up for things you did not agree to and then charge your card. It's a very common thing on the internet. It's why they're so ready to reverse the charges; they know that what they are doing skirts the law and could easily get them in trouble.
