I was once a McAfee customer, but it has been at least a year or two since I had subscribed to their services. I would NEVER have found out about this charge, if I hadn't checked my credit card stmt., since I never received any confirmation emails regarding a "purchase." They kept my financial info in their database, and apparently, someone in their company decided to take advantage of it.
I wasn't sure, at first, if I were dealing w/ an identity theft issue, or if McAfee had someone on the inside who was charging former customers, hoping that they wouldn't notice. I believe it's the latter, and that I'm probably not alone.
I contacted McAfee through their website, and they initially responded, but they did not follow up w/ me regarding an explanation as to why I was ever charged. I attempted to contact them again, and they still fail to respond back.
Because McAfee is one of the largest providers of computer protection products, they will probably continue to thrive, but be warned that:
(1) your credit card info is NOT protected in their hands
(2) you should check your credit card stmt carefully each month, as well as your banking info.
