Then the thrustworthy company became aware of their mistake and refunded 
again on their own intiative.
I phoned my bank that double refund was very friendly, but something I 
should bring to attention.
The company and my bank never managed to correct the double refund. Is'nt 
that nice.
It is not nice of course, for it means that somehwere the administration is 
ill implemented/organized.
It was a small amount. May be for a bigger bill things would have gone in a 
different way.
I wonder what, in this respect, is going to happen with freedownloadzone 
(which is everything except free!)
Thanks to all of you for your support.
