paintinghere.com Chinese Credit Card Skimming Scam Xiamen Internet
I bought a very average painting online from paintinghere.com, I couldn’t be bothered to ship it back as they said I would have to pay for all shipping costs. The strange thing is a month later I received a charge of $89 from a restaurant in Xiamen, China on my statement, I’ve never been to China so was shocked to see it there. I challenged it with my card company who asked if I had made any overseas card payments in the previous month and the only one I had made was to paintinghere.com
I then rechecked their payment system and it was DEFINITELY not on a secure server, in fact instead of being transferred to a bank’s secure server, paintinghere.com ask you to enter you card details on their unsecured page, you know it’s unsecured because the web address is http rather than htpps (the s is for secured) and no padlock icon appears in the bottom right-hand corner as it does for a secured page (see screenshot). So they can see and skim all your card data and then use this information to make false charges against your card.
Don’t enter you card details on paintinghere.com, it is not SAFE.
