Facebook pop-up ad Debited my account for $97.00 when it was supposed to be $4.97 Internet
I kept getting a pop-up when I was online about working at home for Facebook posting ads. I finally decided to look and see what it was all about and they said I could work at home from my computer and make good money doing it. All I had to do was give my debit card information and they would send me a kit to my home address and all I had to pay was a shipping cost of $4.97. I gave them my info and sent it to them. The next day, I checked my bank account to see if the $4.97 had been debited yet and there was a $97.00 charge in there instead. A day or two later, when the amount actually posted to my account, I saw that there was a phone number and a web address in there, so I called the phone number first and a woman answered and said that I had the wrong number. Next, I tried the web address which took me to a website called Cent Commerce, a company that helps people develop company websites. According to the website, they are in Draper, Utah.
Since I couldn't get in touch with anyone by phone or internet, I decided it was a scam, besides they had already charged me more than they said they would. I had to cancel my debit card so they wouldn't have access to my account again. All I can say is, Beware of these Ads.
