Latest Scam: Fake Internet Pharmacy Just Steals Money From You
from the simple,-direct dept
With all the various online scams that are getting increasingly sophisticated, here’s one that’s as simple as it is direct. It’s a fake online pharmacy that is somehow figures out the bank account numbers of people and just takes $140 from you each month. No one seems to be able to find the actual company, though someone did turn up a letter from them claiming to be an online discount drug subscription service partnered with local pharmacies. The letter seemed to indicate that they had an “opt-out” subscription plan, where you got charged $140/month unless you opted-out. Obviously, that’s quite illegal, and people are wondering how the company could have received access to bank account numbers without any authorization from the account owner.
