    Trophyminer

    Hello Doc. Recently i purchased a M.N. badge online. the badge was duly sent and i paid around $10 postage to a company called Trophy miner. So far so good. the company asked if i wanted to subscribe which i ignored. Now, a month later i heard from them again to let me know that they had just taken $68 monthly subscription from my account. I am just about to embark on a journey to regain my lost monies, wish me luck with that! I wonder, have you heard of similar cases? Nice scam, can you put it out there and also let me know of any developments. regards Bob Rowson. R.785766

    If you let the Bank know what has happened, they will get the cash back for you.

    Use PAYPAL for all online purchases in future and be problem free.

    Had a similar problem last year.
    They took it from my credit card.
    Told the bank, card canceled and new one issued, also got all the monies with interest paid back.
    Only problem was that I had to notify all my direct debit accounts about new card number.

    But it is the only way to stop it.

    For most things such as this I would use Pay Pal but could not on this occasion.

    I have been getting calls regarding my internet connection will be shut down tomorrow stuff. Given I don't have an internet connection, I am prepaid on a dongle I have been deleting this call. Telstra say that if you check the incoming calls they put up a fake number that almost looks legit but isn't. Their advice is delete, delete so that's what I do.

    I use Paypal and have no problems. When I set it up I had to register it with my bank account which I did to the number one account. Also had to give credit card number which I did. I then cancelled that credit card and got a new one with new number. Kept getting requests to update my credit card number to them for about six months. They gave up on that so now Paypal is only linked to an account that has nothing in it. So when I make a purchase I make sure that I transfer the said amount into the number one account. Been doing this for years now and confident that if a scam artist cons me they will get bugger all out of Paypal for sure. Do not know if this of any use to members but it is out there now for anyone thinking along these lines.
    That's the way the mop flops.

    My thanks to Brian for this site.

    Victoria, we like you have been getting a number of calls of late.
    All claim to be from Telstra saying if you wish to continue with Telstra press one, if not press two.

    Easy to pick as scams and put the phone down.
    We use iinet not Telstra and the Phillopine voice is a dead give away.

    #8 We had a friend a few years ago who got a similar call regarding his computer. He decided to have some fun and strung them along. They kept trying to get him to press certain tabs on his computer which he pretended to do which of course failed. This went on for some time with the scammer getting more and more frustrated. In the end this friend says to this person "oh I know what's wrong..... I don't have a computer" and hung up. He says the scammer rang back and really gave him a serve but our friend says it was worth the abuse as it kept him laughing for ages.
