PointofMail.com plimus www.pointofmail.com Bait and Switch Fraud on payments advertise 1yr price then charge yearly price every month Netherlands NSW
I have also been the subject of a seemingly common fraud by pointofmail.com and their payments processor plimus.com. I signed up for a discounted 1 year service at $49.99 on a special, discounted to $29.99. Unfortunately I did not pay attention to the paypal payment process as checking back there is an email from paypal that says that I had signed up to a 12 month subscription at $29.99/mth, nor to the monthly payments for almost 12 months. This company will advertise a special with a payment link. The payment looks ok until you look into it and realise it is a monthly subscription.
DO NOT BELIEVE THEIR ADVERTISING
This is clearly a deceptive bait and switch tactic and a simple google search with "pointofmail" and "plimus" yields numerous similar complaints. Most people have not been successful in trying to claim back through paypal it seems as the company has been clever enough to do the actual process through paypal subscription as a 12 monthly subscription. Also for tracking of emails it is a service where you end up locked in. If you use it for tracking emails and you do not renew your subscription... you no longer have any access to any of your previous emails for legal purposes. There is no structure to download/backup your emails to prove that you have sent them. Disputes with PointofMail.com seem to also result in the account being locked out - again no access to the emails for which the service is supposed to be for.
PointofMail it seems from reading other victims reports will also threaten legal action against their victims that complain. This company is deceptive, dishonest and downright fraudulent. DO NOT GO NEAR THEM Hopefully he/them will end up with some crime syndicates as victims and will end up never able to walk or type again. That is presuming that pointofmail is not actually a crime syndicate itself of course.
