My credit card company contacted the TotalAV rep and got a commitment to credit my credit card.

I saw the ads for TotalAV on AOL and decided to try this product for a free trial. To begin, the download and install process is a nightmare, and when I tried to open and...

Wish I saw this before I purchased Total AV. At first it seemed like a decent product but then it took hold of my computer and caused interruptions to all my programs/processes.

It slowed my computer down to a point where I had to disable it in order to get any work done. I finally called customer service to cancel the product. I already paid for a year of service but had no desire to use it ever again. The CS rep was a nightmare to deal with.

His English was marginal at best and after about 30 minutes of telling him NO to other products, etc. He kept trying to bully me into keeping the service. I finally told him absolutely not, cancel my account now. He assured me he would turn off the auto-renewal (as it states on their website) and send me a confirmation.

I never received a confirmation from them. Here we are about 6 months later, I check the account and sure enough, it is set up for another auto-renewal. I went through the process of cancellation again, this time through email so I had a record of everything to show to my credit card company. This time I did get a cancellation confirmation after being forced to go through numerous pages of ads and pleas to keep the account.

TERRIBLE company. Don't get yourself roped in.

Blatant scam artists - don't go near them!!

Last year I fell for their scam. I foolishly bought some antivirus product costing about £3 from them online in a hurry, which gave them access to my bank account. They consequently took about £140 from my bank account without my permission. The first time they did it was a nasty shock, but my bank was understanding and I received a refund. The following month they again took a small sum out of my account without authorisation. My bank couldn't explain what had happened and tried to put a stop to this but to no avail. But again I received a refund. This scenario happened several times during 2020 and then stopped for a while. Three days ago, a year after the first time, they took £142 out of my account again without a hint of authorisation from me. This time a bank advisor said she would stop all payments to this organisation and suggested taking it up with the company in the form of a complaint. So I did and various company advisers tried to insinuate that I was their customer, that I shouldn't cancel my antivirus, and that they would hate to lose my custom. Extremely cheeky, seeing that I had never signed any contract of payment for services with them. I kept spelling out their unlawful behaviour and insisted that they stop taking my money and if not, it will be treated as theft which I would report to an ombudsman. Eventually they confirmed the cancellation of my account (which I never knowingly opened) and said they would not take my money again. Let's see what happens. Should they do it again I will take the matter up with the ombudsman. They refused to acknowledge their wrongdoing or apologise for the distress and inconvenience they had caused. Steer well clear and never, ever click on any notification from these fraudsters.

Cancel subscription.

Called to cancel subscription, offered reduction in price then spent next three minutes listening to double talk. Stated loudly to cancel immediately and 100% refund my call was dropped. Received email saying sorry you couldnt contact us. Contacting my bank.

User's recommendation: Do research, I don’t recommend TotalAv.

Fraud

Update by user Apr 08, 2021

It just keeps getting worse. I had to cancel my debit card.

I had to change my passwords for my email. I believe this company is located in India. Early this morning I received an email with a one time pass code to change my email password. This came from India.

This was not from me changing my password. I was able to get my bank to reverse the charges. As I said before I never signed up for the service.

I then went and froze all my credit reporting services. His company is the nightmare from ***

These people are *** I found bank charges from them. I did not sign up for their crap. They keep asking me for my email address and when I give it to them they tell me that this isnt the address that I signed up with. I asked them what dont you understand about I did not sign up with your service? And the asked me for my email again.

User's recommendation: Don’t do it. Their accounting department claims that they can’t find the charges. If they can’t find them charging your account how could they ever find a virus.

They are the worst to deal with ever. I have called and spoken to the same person all 3 times and the last time she tried to say they had a duplicate account that was made. This is a total scam. I would never recommend this company.
