    I have unintentionally fallen for a pop-up ad on my phone offering me a new Samsung s10 phone for just $1.

    Subsequently I received emails from 2 separate 'organisations' providing login and password for their websites. Smelling a rat, I searched the sites and they have nothing to do with Samsung or any related supplier. The sites are as follows:

    1) Brainratingstore.com

    2) Optimuscl

    Both sites had servers located in Amsterdam. Interestingly, both sites had footnotes written in Cyrillic, suggesting a Russian or Ukrainian based scam. Why am I not surprised?

    I opted out of both and received notification emails confirming my 'Opt out'. I hope it works because they both stated that if I did not opt out within 3 days, I would be perpetually charged $99 per month until I did opt out. I note that they have both charged my credit card with $1 and $3:30 respectively. I really hope that's the end of the matter but be others to be warned...

    Hi, there was a link on my facebook feed, advertising the Samsung S9 for $1.

    I completed the form asking for my bank details, and then it said that the offer was declined.

    However, R642.31 was deducted from my bank account.

    I have reported it to my bank, and they are now investigating. But does anybody know of another way I could get my money back?

    I was asked to fill out a Firefox survey and sent to a site with the same type of promotion. A Samsung Galaxy S10- contest entry and purchase offer for just $2.

    I also did a search and found this site.

    The scam url is here- personalgift.co

    My daughter entered my visa information thinking it was for real. Luckily it was a card that had too little money in it so it was "declined", can they use the information again to deduct money? should I change my account number?

    • May 18, 2019 at 9:57 AM by info

      Yes, they may continually attempt to charge the card. So, I would recommend canceling the card and getting a new one.

      Was caught in the same manner, $1 paid turned into $53 to join some dating web site. I also cancelled my card before it was paid. I was too greedy, if it sounds too cheap, stay away.

        Same thing happened to me. I cancel my card straight away and close the subscription from that website through their customers service and the transaction was void so I got my 53 dollars back never again. I trust anything too good to be true.

    Afraid I got caught up in this scam tonight too and gave away my credit card details.

    "Thank you for joining, visa card was accessed and money gone out now."

    This was part of an email sent back to me

    "We hope you enjoy your membership to tryandfindlove.com"

    I was a victim of that scam. I was charged 88,30€ from my credit card by "subscribing" some travel ebooks.

    It says it's monthly. Tomorrow I will go to my Bank and try to cancel it before they take more money. Be aware NOT to give Credit card information! I did and got caught. Shane on me :'(

    Radios pick website is using the samsumg 9 for a dollar for loyal customers. They take bank info and never another word is mentioned bout the samsung.

    I was only charged 26 cents at this time but I will have to change my bank card now, for sure. the site is in text message on my phone and you go to hxxp://2tac.org/samsungs9/index.html but radiospick.org.

    I hope this helps stop them from the next scam on others. Thanks
