Software Pros Trying to download Avast for $16.00 and somehow ended up on this scam website. does not appear Internet
I had my laptop repaired and the repair shop put Avast on my laptop. I never liked it and tried to delete it repeatly but it said file was corrupted and I could not delete it. I thought that if I downloaded it again then I would have a uncorrupted file I could delete. I could not use any other virus program because Avast blocked it and made my laptop run very slowly.
I searched for Avast on Google and went to what I thought was a Avast site. The full program was around $16.00. I was ok with that because I have been putting up Avast popups for a long time and wanted to find a way to get rid of it. I clicked on the link and somehow was sent to the Software Pros link; without my knowledge. I still thought I was with Advast. I downloaded the program. At no time was I informed of a $99.98 charge. I did not accept the charge. I did not enter my credit card information. I suppose they got that through Google. I received no receipt. I just happened to notice the charge on my bank website.
I got on their website to tell them I did not want their program. I never heard of them and have no idea what they offer. Because I clicked on the popup that I thought was from Avast and I signed on so I contest the bill they said they will not refund the money. I had almost $100 stolen from me by these ripoff artists. Beware
