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.
Time to call a lawyer and the BBB
And you just got scammed. Let that be a lesson to you!
