Is the TUNEINTUNES direct debit a credit card scam fraud?
If you notice a debit from TUNEINTUNES, it means that your bank card has been entered on a website.
Here are a few examples: a trial offer on a site (clairvoyance, meetings, streaming videos, etc.), a contest to win a smartphone at 1 euro (or any other attractive object: a perfume, cinema tickets, etc.), a foreign e-commerce site which sold particularly inexpensive products ...
Unless your bank card has disappeared and another person has used it to register on a website of this type, there is a good chance that you are at the origin of this subscription to TUNEINTUNES.
In this sense, we cannot consider that it is not a scam in the sense that it is not a bank card hack.
Where does the TUNEINTUNES direct debit come from?
As explained above, this speed follows an internet subscription.
Our diagnosis: It seems that the CB TUNEINTUNES withdrawal is linked to contests such as "Win a smartphone for 1 euro", "Your tablet for 1 euro" ... Their mechanics? You enter your bank details as part of one of these contests and you end up subscribed to some service. The company that manages TUNEINTUNES can thus deduct one or more sums from you each month under the pretext of a subscription.
Please note: this direct debit is recurring. You must complete cancellation procedures to no longer be charged for the next few months.

Can I block my card with my bank to stop the TUNEINTUNES charges?
If it is a card fraud (lost card used by a third party, etc.), you can declare it lost to your banker. You will also be able to open a fraud file to try to obtain a refund (this point is to be discussed directly with your bank advisor).
If you are still in possession of your card, it is very unlikely that it is a card hack: in this case, you have entered your bank details and have validated the GTC (General Conditions of Sale) which informed you about a possible subscription: blocking the card would therefore mean not honoring a contract for which you have signed up. We therefore do not recommend blocking your credit card.
