lifestyledealsnow.com pgbincsupport.com used a Fox News website clone and alleged FN "researcher" to scam for Home Business System, Internet
They said they were the customer support for Lifestyledealsnow.com, who did health and beauty products. I never accessed or ordered any such. PGBIncsupport confirmed my cc# and name as on the order, but said it came from an email address which has nothing to do with me, but everything to do with a Marysville, OH resident named D. Shick associated with Tonya Shick (email@example.com. I have no idea how my cc# and name were obtained, but I have suspicions.
1. UK companies seem to be involved. PGBIncsupport.com is based in the UK
2. I bought from nomorerack.com which charged me a foreign currency conversion fee (UK) which makes me suspicious, because it was shipping from CA.
3. On 11/27, the date the charge was "made" to my account, I had accessed, by accident from a bogus email through a trusted friend's email which had been hijacked, a strange link umbrellasingapore/...... nytimes....... which took me to a cloned FoxNews website and an article supposedly written by a FN "researcher" investigating Home Business System's claims to make money online processing links to websites. The article had no name attached. I went to the home tab and got another article, similar, this one had a name I don't remember as a FoxNews writer. Then it went to Home Business system page and I couldn't get to anything about FoxNews. The URL said something like live-news-today.
I do not know that this Home Business System was the source of the bogus charge, but the amount is the same. When I finally got to a site that said it was Life style deals now, it seemed to have only books about business, health and beauty, but not very good ones.
There may be 2 scams here, Home Business Systems hijacking and cloning Fox News website to lure the desperate with falsified validation, and Lifestyledealsnow in conjunction with PGBIncsupport.com, how they got to me I don't know because I was completely unaware of both and had not clicked on any health and beauty advertisements. In fact, I have all ads blocked and cannot click on them.
