I was charged 2.50 "intro" on my credit card, even though I never signed up for anything. PGBIncsupport.com said 1. "good" I "cancelled" within 2 days or I would be locked into 39.95 each month. 

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 (26dandtshick@yahoo.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.
