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.

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.

    these people took $79.62NZD from my account on October 10Th, & then another $77.62NZD last night November 11th.

    This is AFTER I asked them not to & also asked them where they got my credit card details from...I on a very limited income so this is not good enough.
    Have been to the bank today AGAIN and asked for a reversal of funds but there will be an enquiry first.

    It would appear that the best idea is to cancel your card and get a new one in place of it. These people are pros at the game.

    Hello, I have been charged several fees. I have contacted the bank and they say that as it is a purchase with card they can not do anything.

      I had similar experience. Was not checking my credit transactions, only to discover that Musics247 had been charging me for a subscription.

      I did not knoq about and my bank could not do anything about it unfortunately. Lesson learnt - check your bank statements frequently.

    I have recently been charged 2 small fees after I got sucked in by just trying to view something a friend sent in messenger.
    So I deleted the app and now I’ve been charged $69.95 and this is a while. I’m in a 3-month free trial apparently!

    I confirm how much I have read the comments above and I say that I have answered with their clause of the 5 days, but I have not given any number of credit card and I do not understand how they did ..
    the problem is that it is not possible to pursue them ..

    I also discovered the fraud today. musics247 has twice debited me 42 euros without me having seen the one movie I was looking for.

    Have my credit card blocked immediately. The bank, however, can not help me get the money back. Have never received from the company a mail regarding contract or the like. I ordered as a free trial subscription, but unvorsichetigerweise my card number stated.

    I hope by the card blocking the thing is done; However, the 85 euros are probably gone. The given phone number of musics247 is non-existent. The chat does not work either.

    Hello, concerninscription to musics247.com!

    thank you, for the information I let myself have this day. 1 hour later I made a cancellation and I received the confirmation of cancellation I blocked my card after seeing the comments of your site.

      Unfortunately, I have only now become aware of the fraud, after the site has already debited 90 €. I did not see the movie I was looking for because the site has no movies at all.

      Have my credit card blocked and hope that has done with it. By telephone or by chat, the company was not available. The specified phone number is nonexistent.

      Annoyingly, the same thing happened to me that I discovered today. Debited 90 euros, without me ever having seen a movie. I immediately had my credit card blocked. Back you get the money probably not, at least the bank can not do anything

    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...

    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 😡

      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’s a real shame that these people don’t 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...
