Unable to cancel McAfee suscription

I have been trying for months to cancel a $7.99 McAfee monthly subscription which I am told is associated with an Adobe trial back in June of 2019. Today I was told the only way to do this is to dispute the charge with my bank!!??? What kind of absurdity is this?

I have NEVER used this subscription and have not even installed the product in my memory. The subcription never appeared in my McAfee account, and the reason I was told is because it was connected to an Adobe trial offer. But McAfee is the one who received the money!

On June 5, a help desk support person lead me to believe that a refund was pending. Yet I received a notice today that my account would be charged again, which led to my phone call to support today. 

I am in the USA. If anyone knows where I should file my official complaint (Better Business Bureau, or similar), please let me know. This is a misleading business practice.

This is precisely where I was told to dispute the transaction with my bank. That was the only solution offered.

I have done so, but I find that unacceptable as a solution.

Is that the best you can offer as a solution?
