UMG Buyer's Edge Complaint - Credit Card Scam Via Phone
EVERYONE OUT THERE . . . BE VERY AWARE OF THIS FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY!!!!!
Two Saturdays ago, I received a phone call telling me I had won $25 in gas cards and $200 in shopping credit to any store in their organization (what they failed to mention when they said that, was I needed to be a member in good standing to collect these benefits and that means paying their $19.95 a month for the service). There was a $1 initial fee to check these services out once I received the literature and my personal access number. I had two weeks to cancel this service, however, the paperwork wouldn't reach me until two weeks (which I thought was really strange, because they could charge my credit card account before I actually had my access code or information in hand to check this all out). They did not ask for my credit card number but said they would automatically bill everything to "that" credit card. How the heck are these people getting access to everyone's credit card numbers? And we wonder how identity theft occurs . . . if everyone who has access to a computer has access to people's financial information no wonder this problem occurs so often.
