    Hi Ariel from Montreal, I do have a Samsung Galaxy 7 so I was on my cell on the 15 of May and I got that message, so after I enter the info, my cc didn't go through but my CC was blocked so I call my bank and they told me that was a fraud and I cannot use it anymore and they will send me a new one.
    I was lucky.

    My bank identified the site www.genfet.com
