Realmac Software Subscription Charge?

Greetings, I’m not finding where to contact RealMac billing privately.

I recently got an unexpected charge on my cc bill from RealMacSoftware. When I called the number listed with the charge I immediately get an automated message saying, “If a charge appears on your credit card and you do not recognize it, please visit” When I try to visit that website, it directs me to another website (that looks like Apple) but all kinds security warnings start popping up.

Is this a scam?

I don’t remember signing up for a subscription but I’m starting to wonder if this is somehow a subscription charge. If so, shouldn’t a notice be sent out prior to a charge appearing as well as a legitimate phone number and website listed with the cc charge?

Any ideas as to what is going here?

Holy cow. This is what your link looks like. This is the scammiest scam I’ve ever seen.

That’s exactly what I thought! But that’s where I’m directed when I call the number associated with the RealMacSoftware charge on my cc.

Hi all,

Can you share a screenshot of where you’re seeing this number? I’m wondering if it’s an outdated number from our payment processor in some random directory - certain banks curate info from different databases.

We have a 3rd party payment processor, FastSpring, who most likely has this incorrect #. We do not offer telephone support. Either way, I want to let them know about this to protect our (and their) customers.

If you email me I can sort out and make sense of the renewal and give clarity. Our licenses do automatically renew each year, sam day you initially subscribed, but we can sort you a refund if you’d like. Some folks have reported not receiving the heads up we send a few days before so I understand it can come as a surprise.

Aaron, I just sent an email with attachment to you at


as this is a public forum I cant tell you how I really feel about scammers like this with out getting blocked. To use such vocabulary is regarded as not mixed company friendly.

oh that is easy to spoof
