digital river ireland ltd rip off scam that paypal obviously know about yet let continue

I just happened to get an email saying that a transaction for 39.99 had come from my paypal account to a company call digital river ireland ltd  so reported it to paypal as it was not me who authorised it and without me knowing its happended in the past also

since reporting it paypal they have closed the case and i cant even contact them regarding it 

after searching google it turns out that it is indeed a big scam and happened to loads of people so if that is the case why is it still allowed to happen and not blocked by  paypal   it is obviously known dam well by them that it is happening

here is the link from google about the scam and basically they totally ignore it  and continue to let them do robbery in plain sight

Digital river is an ecommerce payment company. They partner with companies like Samsung, Microsoft, razr, McAfee, avast, etc. If you buy from those websites, your charge may show up as from digital river. They also handle subscriptions. A lot of times what happens is people accept a free trial for a product, like anti virus, and forget to cancel and it auto renews. Be careful what you are accepting Again...Digital river just handles the orders and payments submitted by partner companies.

thats all fine and dandy... but then PayPal will attempt to directly withdraw from your linked bank account.

Unauthorised payment taken today for £64.99 for a secure VPN provided by AVG.  This is not a service that I require or requested.  Refund required from PayPal.

 

Clearly this is a common complaint.  Investigation in to the cause required & robust action to be taken against AVG.  Scam organization.
