The Website claims to be a social networking/dating site. It's suspicious that the top two pieces of information on their website are (1) What is VIPocean and (2) Why are they charging me. They also have a very prominent "100% Satisfied or your money back". In fact that's all the website has. No login page or any other information - they're also in lots of languages, although they appear to be based in Spain.
The 'real' sites at http://www.vipocean.co.uk DO have a login and more information.
The fact that they have your credit card details indicates that you probably signed up for a free trial, not knowing that after a couple of weeks, it reverted to a paid membership. This information may have been hidden in the small fonts.
They say you have the right top a 100% refund as per their website:
Why is VIPocean charging me? VIPocean is charging you because you have signed up for a special offer including a welcome gift and access to VIPocean for a certain period. After the trial period is over, your membership to VIPocean is automatically renewed at a price of Â£34.95. VIPocean subscriptions do not require any commitment period and can be cancelled at any time.
