I received a charge on my credit card this month of $39.99 from Digital Alrive AvA.I have never heard of this company and have never ordered from them. Another scam

My credit card was charged $54.99 for something I have no idea about. I'm now getting the banks to look into this as a dispute but I think this is some dodgy paypal connection !

I had this same problem... I noticed a reoccurring $29.99 charge on my Paypal account. When I tried to find somebody at DigialRiver I found that they are just like Paypal and some body may have enough of my information to be able to scam me. I change my payment info and blocked any transactions coming from Digital River.

Thanks to someone mentioning it was internet security, I checked and I have an invoice from AVAST that I had ordered, for the same amount. Digitalriver seem to be like paypal, a payment gateway. All is good. Look through your emails for invoice receipts for the same amount on something you've ordered

Charged $64.36 from PAY PAL DIGITRIVE. I never authorized this charge. I go to paypal which I haven't used for months and there is no record of this charge on my acct. It put me minus in the acct. What can be done?

After login to Paypal and check, I found the legit purchase record which I totally forgot, I guess the company may be responsible to charge digital product (but I'm not sure). In my case is CLIP STUDIO PAINT PRO... Hope it may help.

just got off phone with bank for an unathorised transaction. £34.99 was taken by paypal for a company called DIGITALRIVE.. never heard of it before.

Scammed. I never authorised this just received an email to say it was paid. I have taken it up with Paypal resolutions. Never heard of it before. Trend is normally the one to contact you re your account renewal.

First I was confused, thanks for earlier comments. Personally for me is the Flickr storage space monthly fee. As someone recommended on the bottom of the monthly bill is referring Digital River Ireland Ltd. Is a choise of payment. If you refuse to pay you might loose your storage capacity upgrade.

Digital River is an online transaction company. It's a middleman for many software license transactions including Avast. I was charged 64.94 because I forgot to cancel my subscription. this was easily solved when I went into my Avast account settings within a week and requested a refund. The license was quickly revoked and I got all of my money back. while it's not in my bank account anymore, I do have confirmation from Paypal that every penny of the money I was charged will be returned to my Paypal account within a few days.

Was my Avast subscription renewal.

Bought a software licence (drawing software). Was authorised by Digitalrive - I think it's a service provider for the merchant where I purchased the programm.
