Beware of www.musics247.com - It is a Fraudulent Online Streaming Website

The website "www.musics247.com" is a fraudulent one. The website which claims that online users can listen to music anywhere, is similar to the fraudulent websites: www.geeker.com, lilplay.com, and tzarmedia.com. Online users who have used their credit cards on the fraudulent website (musics247), run the risk of their cards being fraudulently charged for undetermined amounts, even when they have canceled their subscriptions.

Please continue below.

The Fraudulent Website - www.musics247.com

www.musics247.com

They (musics247) claim not to charge your credit card for the trial period but will do so anyway, even if you cancel before the trial period is up. Also, they will charge you to cancel your free registration, and will periodical charge your credit card for an undetermined amount of money. And, the website doesn't have some movies, books, and music it has advertised. I think this is another trick used to lure potential victims to the website.

Online user who have already subscribed to musics247.com, are asked to contact their credit card company or bank for help to prevent the fraudulent website from fraudulently charging their credit cards, or refund their money if their cards were already charged.

    Hi, I joined this musics247 and still could not access anything; they have charged my card $65 Australian dollars. I will be calling my bank in the morning.

    Update to my story of July 19:

    "Musics247 finally stopped billing me. I also filed a dispute for the 3 billings amounting to 150 USD to the card company and I was reimbursed.
    Happy ending."

    Scary, this site popped up on either tinypic or cloudinary while searching for an image hosting site. I let virustoal check it and luckily it seems to be a harmless scam site. I would already rate it as scam, because there is no comma between "Anywhere" "Anytime" in the hero picture. Quick made scam site from a template.

    This is obviously a scam. I got bilked for 60 Euros although I cancelled during the trial period and the cancelation was confirmed. What I do not understand is that the Hosting Organization is AMAZON.com in Dublin (Amazon Data Services Ireland Limited), IP: 1.compute.amazonaws.com. How can AMAZON be associated with such fraud?

      AWS hosts even malware sites and command and control servers, please check the ip and send a email/ticket to amazon. If you can show them that this site is a scam, they will shut it down in the best case. Some people got lucky by doing this and got some sites down.

    Here's my story:

    While trying to download a movie from a website, a popup from musics247.com asked me to enter my credit card number, saying that I would not be charged, so I entered it. It was on a late evening and I was tired, my vigilance weakened. I actually never downloaded anything from the first site or from musics247 and quickly forgot about it all.

    A couple of months later, I saw that my credit card had been charged twice by an amount of 49.95 USD. I remembered the fateful evening and searched my mailbox for any email from that site as a subscription confirmation and found nothing. So I searched the web for a clue that musics247 was fraudulent and found this site. Then I searched on the subject of credit card fraud, overcharging, etc... and found interesting things like: "Unexpected repeat billing is in a gray area of the law, depending on whether the customer legitimately agreed to the charges." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Credit_card_fraud) and "Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your losses from fraud on a credit card are capped at
    $50." (http://time.com/money/collection-post/2791975/suspicious-charge-credit-debit-card/).

    After that, I cancelled my subscription to musics247 online, but never got a confirmation email as they claimed I would. I sent an email to their customer support and finally got a confirmation that I would not be charged anymore. I also asked why they charged me 49.95 USD each time while the tariff mentions 34.95 USD as the highest rate on the front page of their website and their answer was: "The reason why you were charged is because you've subscribed in our 5-days free trial, and failure to cancel it within the trial period it will upgraded to Monthly Premium Membership for $49.95 USD per month. As what stated in the Terms and Condition. Please be informed that under our company policy premium members who have registered through our free trial offer are not eligible for any refund."

    The amount of 49.95 USD is probably designed so to stay just below the legal limit of 50.00 USD (see the Fair Credit Billing Act) in order to render any claim for fraud impossible. So it's no use filing a complaint in my case as they told me at the credit card company.

    There must be tons of such companies exploiting that trick to pump money out of careless people's wallets.

    I still have to see that they effectively cancelled the billing on my credit card...

    I'm going to file a complaint with the police against Musics247.com. They have fraudulently collected an amount of my card.

    Thanks for your info. I got caught out as I thought it was Netflix but got scammed; first time in my life. They charged my $67! No record of it anywhere but on my bank statement! Luckily, what a horrible thing to do! Normally I'll know it a scam; gggrrrr 馃槨

      Same here. I thought this was a potential Netflix replacement too. Fortunately I was only billed $1.40. Several emails to the thieves lead to no real response. I notified Visa who said they would monitor for any further Musics247 activity. It鈥檚 a real shame that these people don鈥檛 just get a real job, rather than stealing from honest folks.

      Hello,

      Same for me. I have to go to the police station tomorrow to file a complaint. They took me twice 49,95 USD. And I don't know how they did because I never use my VISA card on such websites. It's a professional card. So they had to find my details elsewhere...
