Default I really need some help . . .

I am currently using my girlfiend's laptop. It was just recently purchased and she allowed her younger sister to use it. Her sister chose to visit some porn sites and now my girlfriend just got hit with $99 charge unless she cancels before the 3 day trial expires, which began yesterday at about 1:30 am, thereby leaving me just about 55 hours at the time of this post to fix this so that she won't get charged. It even gave her an account number and a code.

To compund matters, in my attempt to fix this, i accidentally the twrms and aggreement document that might possibly have helped me to cancel.

Now, i am no computer expert but i have searched everywhere that my limited knowledge allows me to do so and have found no way to undo this or to contact them. If anyone may have time and may have a suggestions or two, i would be eternally grateful.

Thanks in advance for your efforts!

well I gues u could cancel it by going to the website, logging in and then finding something like end subscription. Ofcourse this would mean that u log in, which would mean that u use the service. So it's kinda hard, I'm no expert with porn sites And they sent her an email with the account number & code? If so then just read through the email again, it should tell u how to cancel.

The porn site should have a help email or phone number, try that.

yea i was trying to avoid havin to actually enter the site myself but i gues i might have to. Also the thing is that they didnt send her an e-mail with the info. They made the terms of agreement auto popup on her desktop, and in there was where she got the code and account number. I personally think that this is bogus, but she is sufficiciently freaked out so i gotta do something.

Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

Is is possible that they can somehow track you by IP address and maybe get your banking info. if you check bank account online often?

Haha no. If you don't pay the money all the site is going to do is deny you access to porn, nothing more. Tracking your IP and then stealing bank info is ILLEGAL, by every means. Either delete your account or just don't pay. Unless you gf's sister gave speific info on you or your gf you are safe no matter what.
