First off, giving them your card information is giving them authorization to charge you, any financial institution will tell you that. Second, you should have read the fine print, it probably says your card will be charged after the trial period ends.

If they didn't say it when he ordered then no. You can authorize a one time transaction, it's not permission to take money out a 2nd time. all he has to do is call his bank, it can take up to 30 days but he can get his money back.

It is authorized as long as the terms were on the original order page, and 9 times out of 10 it has a box that you have to click saying "I'm 18 and agree to these terms". And a dispute only works if you actually got scammed, if you lose (ie. the terms were disclosed and you just ignored them), you don't get your money back, and usually the company wont work with you after that.

(1) I agree with all the "call your bank or credit card company" comments. You can dispute the charges. (2) Never give someone your credit card number or bank account number for "free" stuff - It's never free if you read the fine print and if they cannot sell their product or services openly it is crap and not worth it.

It's generally a good idea to look up company reviews before giving them your CC info, especially if they're offering anything for "free." There is almost always fine print that states they will charge you the full amount if you don't cancel your trial within a certain time. Not to mention the product is usually garbage to start with. You will probably want to cancel that card though, and report the $130 charge as a scam. Otherwise, they will continue to charge that card for as long as they can.
