Whoever they are they tried to put this through on my account and I am not a user or even know about that site. I did not have enough credit for them to carry it through but now i change my paypal password .... i hate these types of things.

They charged my paypal account today without authorization. How can PayPal allow this? I guess I will cancel my PayPal account.

Becky on December 17, 2019

My husband got charged on his PayPal account a couple days ago. When he reported it to PayPal they just went and said that it was an authorized purchase and they couldn’t do anything about it.

Same here. My account was charged for 69.99$ and pay pal says the transaction is not unauthorised. WTF?

Noticed a charge on my bank statement to ask net that I did not agree to. It makes me feel like giving up on pay pal.

I was charged USD 19.99 for not what any idea that I could recognize. Isn't there any measure The Paypal could prevent such an unauthorized and scam before debted on the customers? - terribly disappointed.

Acabo de recibir de débito en mi tarjeta de crédito "Su VISA Pichincha que termina 603 Reg consumo de $ 25,47 el 03/SEP en PAYPAL *ASKNET INC", lo cual no he autorizado, alguien debe investigar a estos truanes, y PAY PAL no debe contribuir con estos pillos

Asknet Inc also charge for the “ iobit uninstaler” software which is meant to remove all traces including you computers registry and any residuel traces of program’s that you uninstall. Hope this helps

This is a charge on my Paypal Account that I didn't recognize but having done some research I realized that it is in relation to my purchase of IOBIT Advanced System Care 14 Pro computer maintenance software. I have been using this same software for over 10 years and it is a legitimate and very good company. IOBIT seem to use a commerce software provided by Asknet to process their charges and I'm sure IOBIT notifies people of this somewhere on the payment page when we make the purchase. So, the Asknet charge I have of $29.19 is ligit.

louis on July 28, 2021

An ammount of $99.42 appeared on our paypal account. We did not purchase any products from them. A scam

Josh on September 10, 2021

A charge of $103 appeared on my bank statement and I was sent a purchase confirmation email from Asknet and Paypal but I NEVER ordered this software. I have asked for a refund and will see what happens - Paypal cancelled the ongoing billing but have yet to hear back from ASKNET about the refund

Luke on September 22, 2021

I have just recieved an email saying £59.99 has been paid. I read above and it must be for my Cyberlink Powerdirector account. Well I hope it is!

Eddie on October 15, 2021

This is a charge from IOBIT software, when you purchase software from them they automatically renew the subscription every year unless you go into your account and select stop renew next to the product. They also add extra software that you haven't asked for and renew that every year as well, I got a charge of $72.94 USD. you need to go to your initial software purchase email to get your login information.

Sandra Anderson on October 27, 2021

My account was charged with Asknet and I called PayPal Something is very wrong with this picture. I called Paypal and without question they know it is a fraud yet allowed it. I will take this claim all the way to the top. This is a scam and Paypal is allowing it. NOT OKAY! Unethical practices. I never even heard of Asknet. Let's go!

Jonathon on January 22, 2022

I had four payments charged through PayPal, today on January 22, 2022, all for the same amount. I am disputing this with my bank and through PayPal. I have canceled my credit card. Beware folks.

Mel Faraj on February 06, 2022

PayPal charged my account for some 26 Euros in favour of asknet. I had never known this company let alone have had any dealing with them. When I checked my account with PayPal I found an automatic renewal has been set in favour of asknet all without my knowledge let alone my authorization. I suspected IObit who had emailed me subsequently stating an auto renewal has been set in their favour 'for my convenience' but included in the same email a facility to change to manual, which I promptly did. But the asknet payment has gone through days before my renewal was due and without any advance notification!? And now IObit keep on notifying me to renew my subscription despite the payment made through the backdoor to asknet and the IO but softwares no longer using!! Contacting PayPal seems like an impossible task. I replied to the PayPal email but my reply email was sent back to me stating this email is not monitored. I phoned PayPal but received an automated message to say they are very busy and they terminated the calls. I tried their chat service and having given them my details it was stated that this service cannot deal with this matter and offered to transfer the chat to another service on PayPal. I agreed to it but so far received no response.i am now fully minded to close my account with PayPal and on my bank account.
