Strange auto renewal


McAfee just took 749 dkk from my account on 4th August, without having my approval. Few days before, on 28 July, I've got an e-mail from McAfee saying that I have to renew my subscription, if I want to continue with their product. I DIDN'T. I didn't even log into my account and this is easy for them to check in the system.

Anyway, today I've seen that this money were taken from my bank account, I checked today also my McAfee account and - surprise! - the renewal was on. I turned it off, but I never set it on from the beginning. Otherwise, I wouldn't get that e-mail from McAfee to renew it myself, anyway.

I'd like very much my money back. I wrote to them from a contact form directly from my account, but they answered me to call them. I don't even know if it's a free call, during the fact that I'm living in Europe. 

Can you please help me to solve this issue?

Thank you in advance!
