On facebook. Somebody private message me. A Kate Devon, her e-mail is this kate_devon22@yahoo.com. She told me if I could vote for her. I told her sure. So she sent me this link. http://kateverifierpage2.2.lookera.net/ She told me that it was free. I followed the link. Told me it was free up until I deactivated my account. After filling in the forms it took me to a porn site http://www.platinumclub.com I tried to deactivate my account but it didn't comply. E-mailed them but they didn't reply. Now it will charge me 39.95 a month lifetime if I don't deactivate it. But they won't let me deactivate it. They just take me to this site http://shopjet.net Please help me with this scam. I hope it would be solved as early as possible. I can't afford that charges. The platinumclub.com e-mail is contact@platinumclub.com and contact number: 1-866-712-3827

Email phishing?

AUTHOR: Adam - (USA)

I recently received an email from these people saying much of what the OP had stated about having to participate in the promotional offers in order to deactivate and not have my credit card charged. First let me state that my bank recently caught some suspicious transactions they stopped for some online poker site. I canceled my card and got a new one in the mail. It really freaked me out because I'm really good about not frequenting shady online sites, I'm also not naive enough to fall for any 'free age verification' BS, and about the only place I'll use my card online is Amazon. So I received this email the other day from these people and I'm fairly certain it is just a phishing scheme. I've only had that new card for a week and it's only been used at the grocery store, so I can't imagine they could have that. The only reason I paid the email any mind was that it wasn't caught by my spam filters and showed up in my inbox.

Use common sense people!

AUTHOR: stan - (Canada)

So let's get this straight... you got some spam, and you thought it would be a good idea to 'verify your age' for a 'free membership' to a random porn site and you believed that your 'credit card would not be charged'... after sending all your personal info to a random web server... with forged WHOIS info that says that it may or may not be in Cyprus. 

Do you even know where Cyprus is?  Does creating an account on a server there with your real name, credit card number, billing address, CVV code, etc etc REALLY sound like a good idea?  Do you actually think that the FTC/FBI is going to investigate this and fix it for you?  You actually believed that a 'kate' that you've never heard of tracked you down on Facebook... and you thought that giving her your credit card number was a good idea?

Doesn't anyone have any common sense these days?!?

Sigh.
