  • Hi,

    Just wondering, as I stupidly did the same thing - what were we thinking??! - did you ever get a refund??

    I'm assuming not….and thinking I better get on an quickly cancel my card.
  • Oh no now we'll have to read the "you're not allowed to post without MSE permission" posts!
  • I too have been conned...gullible, naïve, probably! As soon as I noticed the first £29.90 go out of my account in January I contacted my CC company (Nationwide) to tell them to block any further payments and put the payment in dispute. They sent the forms out, I filled them in and sent them back. Just checked my account this morning and a second £29.90 has been taken out. Have called CC company again and am now waiting for their dispute team to call back. The only other option I can see is cancelling my CC but I'm off travelling next week (maybe I'll got to Panama and find them!) so its not really a great option.
