I hate to admit to being scammed, but here it is.

On February 28, 2012, I encountered this site while searching for a well known freeware application.

I fell for the come-on which promised support services as well as safe downloads and signed up for an intermediate service level.

I downloaded the desired package from their site, only to find that the copy they provided was corrupted and unusable.  I downloaded it again with the same results.

I immediately requested cancellation of my contract with the understanding that there would be a charge for cancellation.  (Red Flag!).  My e-mail was returned as undeliverable.  As soon as the charge, about twice what I expected, was posted to my account, I  disputed the charge and informed Card Services of my attempt to cancel.  My latest statement has an entry saying that the dispute has been settled and a charge for the full amount posted back to my account.

I hope that this report may save someone else from the same ripoff.

Further Information

AUTHOR: Sazquatch - (USA)

Since my original post, I have been able to reach Software Pros through their e-mail address.

They refuse to give a refund, notwithstanding that my original e-mail was returned as "undeliverable".
The "one-time" charge remains on my Visa account.  There was no explanation for the overcharge.

While I may be a victim of my own lack of perseverance during the 7 day window, I would definitely not recommend this site to anyone else.
