Type of a scam Credit Cards
A couple weeks ago someone called saying he was from BubblePC, an internet computer repair company, of which I had taken out a membership. He showed ‘problems’ with my computer and I gave him permission to fix the problems. When he asked for my personal bank information to pay for the repairs I realized it was a scam and hung up. He asked for my credit card number which I gave him then he said he couldn’t use it so I deleted it. An hour later my credit card company called and said unauthorized purchases had been made. I canceled the card. I contacted BubblePC and asked them to cancel my membership and return my money. They refused. Today another person called and said he was also from BubblePC and he wanted to cancel my membership and return my money. He said he would send it to Western Union and could he have a credit card number to do that. Then he said he had ‘accidently sent the request twice and could you call Western Union and have them send me the money back’. We hung up realizing he was trying a bait and switch scam. The credit card company called and we canceled the card.
