If you were a MoviePass subscriber, you might want to check your recent transaction history. Even though the movie theater subscription service officially shut down a month ago, some users have reported seeing mystery charges from MoviePass showing up on their credit card history according to a report from the New York Post.
One user told the New York Post she was still charged her $9.95 membership fee in September, even though MoviePass shut down September 14th. as well as a second mystery charge for $5.64.
Rachel Vidak, another customer in Colorado canceled her subscription back in January 2019 and was still charged twice since then, once on the day of the shutdown.
MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe gave the New York Post this statement:
“One single subscriber, out of the many thousands of MoviePass subscribers, was charged $9.95 on September 15 and has been refunded that amount,” he says. “We are aware that some of our subscribers have mistaken refunds appearing on their credit card statements for charges.”
While that may be true, Vidak says she disputed the amount with her bank as fraud which makes us think a it must have been a charge, not a credit.
