    Default Beware 'SCAM' Website, Identity Fraud

    "www.buygreendot.com". I advise to stay well clear. No proof as yet but looks like a scam site for identity fraud. I was looking for a computer for my daughters xmas, on the google 1st search page came up this site with a very competive price (ex VAT I assumed), so I registered (asked for Date of birth) then typed in the credit card details but it just came back saying cannot use this card. I got suspicious when I tried the phone number on the site and it rang but a message "sorry this mailbox is full" came back. I then searched the web this morning and loads of forums are telling tales of this suspected scam site. I cancelled my credit card at once, luckily no transactions have been made but everyone beware if you have falling victim thus far.

    Just noticed stuff all over the net about them.

    1: The domain was set up on the 7th october 2009 and the website claims to be running since 2005, the domain is also registered in the USA and this company claims to be in the uk.

    2: If you phone them you get some woman who runs a plumbing company in dartford who urges you to cancel your cards.

    3: Lots of bits are copy/pasted from reputable sites.

    Looks like a very dodgy site.
