CA - Computer Associates CA Associates Rebate RIPOFF -Missing Proof of Competitive Upgrade SCAM El Paso TX

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

I am SURE I am not the only victim of this scam from CA Associates (formerly Computer Associates Internet Security Suite). Sadly, I had to get burned TWICE before I decided to fight back and really start making problems.

I bought their junk software from (who won't help and couldn't care less that they help the rip off!) only because it came with a "FREE 2GB COMPACT FLASH DRIVE".

The rebate stated I needed to send in a "screen shot" print of my current anti virus software / license (Kaspersky) along with a copy of my invoice and original UPC. I DID!

Weeks later I got a post card stating that my rebate was INVALID because I did not provide proof of a "competitive product". So O took another screenshot of my license and sent it in again with the post card as instructed.


When I check, the only thing I get is it telling me my rebate is INVALID.

The first time it cost me $40, this time it was $45.
Isn't there some class action suits already working for this!?!?!? I am sure I am not alone on this!


FYI, the rebate states this:
Provide proof of purchase of a competitive version of a CA recognized security product from McAfee, Symantec, Trendmicro, Webroot, Lavasoft, Intermute, FBM or other manufacturer\recognized CA competitor. (MINE WAS KASPERSKY ANTIVIRUS)Send copy of original invoice or a print screen of the Help/About screen (see below for instructions).
