+3 Theft from my bank account
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Askvipocean
I have just discovered that £34.95p has been going out of my bank account for some months to someone/company known as Askvipocean.
I have no idea who they are or how they got hold of my details. I dont even know how to cliam my money back. The bank has stopped the payments but have said that if they try to get money from my account again to inform them.This has to be a big Scam. The bank informed me it was through a Computer Network. That\'s all I know & it makes me feel sick to know I have been done.

I was quite surprised to learn today through a telephone call from my credit card company that they had blocked payments to a company/someone known as ASKVIPOCEAN. I have no idea who this company or persons are or how they got any details about me. They have been taking £34.95p a month from my credit card for 3 months but they will get no more, thankfully I get can my money reimbursed through my credit card. However, this does not ease the distress of learning how dishonest people can be taking from hard working people. This is one huge scam being done by someone or people that are scum. What goes around comes around and I hope they get there come uppance.

Here's the problem. The domain name changes but the barely-concealed scam remains the same. It's a bait and switch operation - free for a while then the recurring monthly charges on the quient. The fact that their home page goes straight to the 'Why is VIPocean charging me?' FAQ.

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 £34.95.

Apparently you have 30 days to cancel.
