It's a scam. If you get it they will bill you $29.99 every 6 months. You may not be able to stop them. Also your credit card company may not be any help.
They billed me through Reg.Net. They are in on it too. Reg.Net would not refund me. The person I talked to at Reg.Net said that she had cancelled the automatic renewal. Then 6 months later they burned me again. I talked to a fraud investigator at Capital One. She had a tuff luck attitude. I told her I didnt know there would be an automatic renewal she told me yes I did know there would be an automatic renewal. When I told her not to tell me what I knew she hung up. After they got me for a second renewal charge the fraud investigator I talked to was fine and he credited me. However he did read me a disclaimer saying there is a chance they may undo that. I just checked my statement online and the relevant part looks like this.
Payments, Credits, and Adjustments
6/22/2007 PURCHASE ADJUSTMENT ($29.99)
6/22/2007 DR *SpyHunter , 952-908-4112 , CO $29.99
The first automatic renewal said something like:
12/22/2006 REG.NET*SPYHUNTER 800-999-2734 $29.99
That phone number, 952-908-4112 connects you to Reg.Net. If you need to call Reg.Net use 800-999-2734
In summary I believe Enigma Software Group Inc. and Reg.Net are running a scam.
Here is a copy of the email you will get every 6 months if you buy SpyHunter (Spy Hunter).
I have neutralized it by putting xxxxxxxxx over some of it.
