McAfee Alleged to Hand Subscriber Credit Cards to Third Party

April 8, 2010

A Federal class action suit filed by Rosen, Bien & Galvin, out of San Francisco alleges that McAfee uses deceptive techniques to “trick” users into handing their credit card information to a third party partner.

After entering the information, previously undisclosed charges charges appear on the user’s credit bill.  The suit alleges that when the user attempts to contact the third party to cancel the “service” they receive a recording that states it “does not offer cancellation or subscription services”.

The complaint also states that upon contacting McAfee the users are told that the AV software company cannot do anything about the charge.

Add this one to the “One More Reason McAfee Sucks” category, and file under “Dirt Rat Bastards”.
