Avangate Inc. Unauthorized charge renewal for Bitdefender Redwood City California

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

To my surprise a pending Debit on my bankcard reading AVANGATE*BITDEFENDER.C REDWOOD CITY CA I did not authorize this. I purchased Bitdefender 3 years ago but never renewed it or gave authorization for a renewal. When I search the web about this company, there are many complaints about this type of behavior. I ordered Bitdefender on Amazon 3 years ago from Sold by: Amazon Digital Services, Inc


How did they (Avangate) get involved and how did they obtain my bank card number? How can they "renew" my subscrition when I now have Kaspersky as my Bitdefnder runs out 1 March 2014? I am contacting my bank to reverse payment and I will contact Amazon about this. I will email these people at and and share my dismay with them.
