I remember my first internet “match”. It all started out innocently in the beginning. I was having difficulties with my computer and someone in the chat room referred me to another regular in the same room. In trying to resolve my difficulties I gave her my phone number as it was easier than trying to have her walk me through fixing files on-line. She called me and after resolving the issue with my computer, we ended up talking for several hours. It seemed like we had quite a bit in common. She called regularly for the next few nights and each time we talked for hour’s on-end. It all seemed too perfect. She said all the right things. Everything I wanted to hear.

I received an e-mail from “Wal-Mart” asking me to complete a survey and get $90 added to my account. I don’t mind completing surveys if I feel they will help an organization or business to provide better customer service. At first I thought Wal-Mart might actually give me money on a Wal-Mart card or something of that nature (but I knew better).
The first thing I looked for was a secure site. It did not indicate that it was a secure site. I clicked on various links at the top of the page (of course they were not real links (another warning sign). They asked for my credit card information (why would Wal-Mart need my credit card information when they have Wal-Mart cards?). Out of concern for the elderly or kids I thought I should report it right away. I went to Wal-Mart’s actual website and found a link for Help under Customer Service. If we don’t report scams then someone in our family may be the next victim.
I have been the victim of credit card scams through VistaPrint.com for several years. In doing research online, I’ve found thousands of other victims internationally and the consumers in this country need to be aware of this.
Though I have been a client since 2002 – placing almost 100 orders for multiple businesses on several different credit cards – I recently found a trail of fraud that has led back to years of bogus charges for phantom and nonexistent products, services and memberships all tracing back to VistaPrint and its affiliates. This is money stolen from, not only from my personal credit cards but also from multiple businesses, one of which includes a nonprofit animal shelter where every penny counts.

Well it looks like I was scammed out of $400…
There was a member, who needed some gfx done. I basically made everything he wanted and had it ready for him. On the payment date he told me he was having issues with Paypal. I asked him what the problem was and he said his account was put under review.
Now hearing that I got a bit worried, but he said it was nothing to worry about. So finally the day comes, he sends me the funds and I send him all the graphic files. Within 1 hr after the transaction, I get an email from paypal. My account has been put under review? Now I’ve never had issues with Paypal before, this is the 1st time my account has been put under review. Continue reading “” »
