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

M.Luppino on June 09, 2017

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 !

Sema Reklaw on June 16, 2017

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.

Sarah on July 04, 2017

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

charge from Digitalriv for $49.99 on my bank statement, never authorized or ordered through Paypal, better not happen again

Sherri on August 22, 2017

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?

M.Chan on October 12, 2018

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.

I was got a debit alert of PayPal for digital rice and I don't have anything to do with this...this is scam

shellie mercer on December 12, 2018

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.

A cullen on February 17, 2019

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.

Tunde on April 04, 2019

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.

Bilal on May 27, 2019

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.

Kate on February 16, 2020

Was my Avast subscription renewal.

Chris on July 03, 2020

just got off phone with bank for an unathorised transaction. £35.88 was taken by paypal for a company called DIGITALRIVE.. never heard of it before.

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.

Elaine Buckley on November 24, 2020

On the 18th Oct. I was doubly charged by these people. One payment was for € 69.99 and the second €59.99. I did NOT authorise either. I went into their website and was asked to log in which is impossible because I don't have an account with them.

pay pal Digitalrive AV 35314369001 under this headline I found a charge of 42,99€ on my visa credit cart. But nobody could tell me what for??

Victor chavez on September 30, 2021

Read comments I might have ordered some kind of anti-virus Have to look into this now !$^# !

Devin on October 01, 2021

I had to track down the source of the charge by looking through my email for a receipt on the date my bank record showed. I found an email from my bank to the tune of $66.14 like I expected, then an email from PayPal confirming a payment to Digital River Inc., and finally a receipt from Blue Microphones. As it turns out it was just the microphone I bought as a gift for my sister. If you're having the same problem try looking through your email like I did. It seems like this is just a proxy payment service that some companies use.

Bruce on October 04, 2021

Trend Micro Security is deducted by DIGITALRIVE.

John on October 08, 2021

They charge me DKK 499,- for some software i never ordered. Its a skam. Call your bank and demand your money back

Colm McLoughlin on June 28, 2022

I do not know the source but from comments here it’s going around since 2017. It’s time these scams were levied each time for 5K. That might stop it !! 🤬🥵🤬

AVG subscription

Jay on July 12, 2022

It's legit. Check your paypal and it'll tell you what it is; you probably used paypal for some sort of service or subscription. Think of it like this: paypal is one mail depot that your package (money) goes to, then it goes to digitalriver as another depot before finally going to its destination. Not a scam, just check your paypal activity and it'll tell you in more detail what it was that you paid for.
