Complaint Review: Symantec Corporation - Mountain View California
Symantec Corporation Norton 360 LifeLock Multiple unapproved charges against credit card and bank account Mountain View California
My annual Norton 360 with LifeLock subscription was up for renewal. I clicked an email link provided by Symantec Corporation to start the process. I went through renewal, clicked confirm, and an error message popped stating there was a problem. The message contained a number to call. I checked my bank account.
There was a pending charge of $129.99 for the license. I called the number. After a 15 minute hold, I was connected to LifeLock support. I was told I needed Norton Support however, the CSR was able to log into my Norton account. Upon doing so, she saw that my subscription was up for renewal. I explained what had already happen.
She told me she'd take care of it. Without my permission she reordered the renewal. Realizing her mistake, she cancelled the order she just placed. I checked my account. There was now 2 pending charges for $129.99. When I complained, I was told that my money would be released but it would take up to 10 days.
I escalated to a supervisor. After being on hold for 20+ minutes, the supervisor repeated what the initial CSR said, 10 day wait until my money would be available. However, she suggested that I allow her to place another order, another $129.99, so I could get the license I had already paid for twice.
This is the 2nd time in two months that Symantec Corporation has taken money from my account without my permission. The first time, even though I have my subscription set to not auto-renew, they did it anyway. When I complained, they issued a refund that took 15 days before the refund showed up on my credit card.
