    I just realized that i have been charged $77 every month for a long time.

    I have used a rarely attended email address to made a few clickbank purchases before and always ended up canceling right away. Especially I paid attention not to sign up for monthly subscriptions.

    Now not only they have been charging me monthly, they charged on a different credit card! the card I will not use for this kind of transactions.

    It took me a while to find out the product is "affiliate game plan" which I am even more certain that I did not make the purchase.

    So what happened? can some affiliate just inserted a spyware on my computer and grabbed my credit card info to make the purchase? I know there were affilaites that stole other affiliates commissions. Can they also make purchases for me without me knowing?

    You probably have a RAT installed on your computer. Cancel the subscription, contact clickbank and do a google search for malwarebytes to remove any malicious software on your computer.
