I went looking for some ebooks and Mediabak at mediabak.com conned me into giving them my debit card number, saying they WOULD NOT CHARGE MY ACCOUNT, this was just to verify that I was 18 years old or more. I thought, Ok, the site looks fairly legitimate. Two days later, I saw that they had placed holds for $2.99, $1.02 and $1.00.
I called my bank and told them I had given my debit card number to a scammer, and to not let them put any more payment authorizations on my account because they have no authorization from me at all, and these people need to be blacklisted by your bank.

I thought it was taken care of, but 2 days later I saw where they had put a $39.99 payment authorization on my account! I thought I was protected from them charging me anything more after talking to the bank previously. Apparently not. My fault though. I should have canceled that debit card after those small charges, but I had just recently received this debit card when the old one expired. And I liked the graphics on the card!
So by being vain about the cool graphics on my new card, I took the chance that I didn't need to just go ahead and cancel the dang card, and it cost me. Hopefully, my bank will have pity on my dumb azz and take care of this mess for me. It's a good bank that always has my back when I screw up. Capital One. They advised me to cancel that card the first time I called them about the smaller charges. But no, I didn't want to bother with all that. Serves me right :)
Also note, this scam outfit uses several slightly different names for their scam websites. There is mediavex.com, mediabak.com, and others I saw when I was googling information on these thieves. They are all the same scammers operating out of Wilmington Delaware and Montreal Quebec.
