    Default Another Internet scam

    Greetings All!
    Just wanted to give everyone a heads up about this one.
    My Wife found 2 charges on our last MC statement:

    UMGbuyersedge phone#888 326 7156 and
    UMGmyadvisorcall#888 873 1669 both for $11.99
    asked me if I had ordered anything over the net etc.
    Told her no.
    Called up the CC company to find out what the charges were for-they claimed the last time my Wife ordered from the net, She had signed up for something or other

    Went to Google and typed in umg advisor-
    Several threads came up about this scam

    Check your statements! Get on the phone asap,as it appears this charge might happen monthly.

    Our card is being cancelled for fraudelent use,and a new card being issued.
    Art as expression-Not as market campaigns-Will still capture our imaginations.

    Thanks for the heads up! This is the reason I don't order ANYTHING on the net.

    And when you place that order, they enter your info into a computer. It's no safer, in fact it is less safe. You never know what the person on the other end will do with you're info.

    Most internet orders are handled through a card processor, the vendor never even sees you're number.

    One other thing, on my CC whenever theres a transaction made on it, within a few minutes my phone will ring giving me an alert....

    And theres options where you can get your daily balance e-mailed to you, or if go over a certain amount in one day. You should sign up to view your account online and see if theres any alerts like that available to your card...
