Lilplay.com virus – another credit card scam that pretends to be legit streaming website

Example of Lilplay scam

Lilplay is promoted as s service that allows accessing movies, games, music, books and other content for the members. However, it is reported as a scam and charging users for services they do not want.[1] According to the research, it seems to be related to or created by the same people who launched Geeker and Tzarmedia websites.

Lilplay.com by Eimhir Ltd tricks users into trying a free membership. However, in order to explore the content on the website, people are asked to create an account and enter their credit card details. Nevertheless, they are promised a free trial; soon they notice that their cards were charged for various subscriptions and memberships.

Unfortunately, users rarely read Privacy Policy, Terms of Use[2] and other user reviews online. Forums are full of victims’ reports who have suffered from Lilplay scam. People claim that they were charged from $1 to $30 without even knowing it. However, if you would read their Terms of Use, you would find that they look shady and hard to follow.

Owners of the website found numerous reasons how to complicate the membership and charge people for the services they do not use. Additionally, users report that cancellation of membership also costs a couple of dollars. Compared to legitimate video streaming websites, this situation looks shady and unfair.

Additionally, subscribers reported that the lilplay.com website does not contain all the promised movies or books. However, the content you might be allowed to access might be illegal too. It means that developers might violate law and stream movies without paying for the creators.

The main problems are related when users try to cancel their membership or get back their money for the services they did not use. Nevertheless, people can call support service via +44-203-300-0135 or 1-302-722-4141 phone numbers or send an email to support@lilplay.com; they barely get needed help.

Therefore, you can only remove Lilplay transactions by contacting your bank and informing about being victimized by cyber criminals. Your bank should block money transfers to this shady website owners. However, they won’t be able to get back your money.

Be careful with Lilplay ads

Security experts from NoVirus.uk[3] report that various adware programs can promote lilplay.com website and persuade people into trying it. It is reported that such ads promise to get a five-day free trial, offer special membership prices and claim to have newest movies, books or software. However, all these tricks are used for getting user’s credit card information.

If you see an increased amount of ads promoting this service, you should check your computer’s security with anti-malware/anti-spyware software. We highly recommend Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego for Lilplay removal. Once you scan the device, all ads and redirects to this website will stop.

Learn how to identify phishing website

As we have already mentioned, lilplay.com might be promoted with the help of potentially unwanted programs (PUP) that are used for pushing numerous ads on the affected computers.

These cyber infections spread bundled with freeware and might enter the system when you install new software using Recommended/Quick setup which does not openly disclose about third-party software. Thus, you have to use Advanced/Recommended settings only.

However, catching Lilplay virus by accidentally installing is only one side of the problem. The scam website itself looks legitimate and stresses out its credibility and best features. Therefore, if you do not check the information about it online, you might not suspect anything shady. For this reason, you have to double-check the information about developers, read user reviews and Terms of Use before you enter your personal information.

One of the clearest signs that you entered on a phishing website is that you are asked to enter your credit card details for the free membership. Indeed, popular sites such as Netflix asks to do the same. However, you should always be aware that there are many scammers out there, and you have to make sure that you are signing in for the legit service.

Get rid of Lilplay.com scam

If you receive tons of pop-ups promoting this service, you should proceed to Lilplay adware removal. You can do it either manually by following the guide below, or you can scan the device with anti-malware software.

However, if you signed up for the membership and got charged a couple of times, you have to contact your bank immediately. Keep in mind that Lilplay’s support service won’t help you. These people will do anything to charge you more unless you will use legal language and convince them into getting back your money. However, it rarely happens.

Thus, in order to remove Lilplay subscription, you need to ask for help to your bank. Your bank will block these transactions and explain how to protect your credit card in the future.

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
