Go to solution Solved by conowizard,

we figured it out it was a siphoning attempt by someone calling themselves "google but it was someone in italy.

google is charging me 15 aud (australian dollars) every month through paypal but the bill just says its from google nothing else!

any google service is free, they cant force you pay anything.

unless you linked credit cards / use their paid functions which no one should ever try

You've been a dumbass and subscribed to something. The fix is simple: go to your PayPal-account and remove the authorization for Google to take payments from you and/or look for any subscriptions there and cancel them.

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

PayPal should refund the $300 in full.

Unless you want a pretty good music streaming service and no adds on YT. Seriously, I can't live without my All Access/Red. I'm not sure why I shouldn't ever use their paid functions...

Well, the OP has been paying the 15 AUD for like 20 months. I'm pretty sure the OP is SOL. Maybe they can get 30 AUD back but I think that is about it. Unless they have a different policy in Australia due to some regulations or something.

I don’t care what their policy is - I would personally fight them over it and demand a full refund to all fraud charges. 

 

Yes, it’s definitely the OP’s fault for not noticing. But still. Not okay.
