    PointShop cancel & block any payments? 5th Dec 11 at 3:24 AM
    My 12 year old has recently signed up for a subscription service called PointShop without my knowledge. I know this because i just got a confirmation email to tell me so

    I immediately looked them up on google to see what they are all about and found warning after warning about them taking £45 from bank accounts, sometimes even months later after the account has been cancelled. I have looked all over the website for cancellation information and it says you cannot cancel before 24 hours is up, so i will do that tomorrow, although i have read horror stories about users being unable to cancel through the site. I also emailed the support email. The only telephone number is foreign and i believe they are in poland.

    Is there a way to block my bank from allowing them to take any payments out?

    Please let me know if you have any experience of this company. Everything i have read has made me extremely worried

    Thank you
    The only thing we know for sure, is that we know nothing
