Last year I registered a domain through google domain. I did nothing with it and was letting it expire. The c/c I used last year was turned off in Feb of this year and a new one was sent, out of fraud concern/precaution.
Since Feb, I’ve not given that new c/c# to any google anything. No affiliate, no playstore, nothing. When I got my ‘your domain will renew in 7 days’ email. I thought, haha fuck you google, that c/c number you have is no good anymore.
Google said “NO, haha, fuck you. We’ll get your new c/c number without you and charge your ass anyway.” And that’s what they did.
Apparently MasterCard will give credit card info that wasn’t used at or given to a merchant to “deserving merchants” so the merchant can update your c/c info when billing issues. Google took my $12 this morning. I’ve spent about an hour trying to learn how the fuck they got my new number before finally being told about the “deserving merchants” bullshit.
You can’t escape google, the cunts.
