    HJT is a tool not a prevention program and should be used only under expert supervision.

    Best to find out what problems dawg33 experienced.

    Default Stop-Scam.com

    This company got a hold of my business credit card and made a charge on it. I have no idea how they did it, but I cant get any info on this company at all. If it uses spyware it needs to be known that these guys are big time trouble.

    Default Obligatory 'Me Too!'

    I had the same problem. I don't know who this company is, but they obtained my credit card info somehow, and charged against the card.
    Here is the WHOIS info for the domain (registered just 3 months ago):
    WHOIS information for stop-scam.com:

    I did a little further research, and found that there is no known William Duong who lives in Temple City (obvious, yeah I know, but there was still a chance in my mind that this was a legitimate purchase I had just forgotten about). The phone number does match with the address, although it's a different name

    Fortunately, I was able to dispute the charges and have them reversed.

    Default stop-scam.com credit card fraud

    I also had this website put through an unauthorized transaction on my bank account. I actually found out about it today and the transaction was also made on 1/28/06. After looking into I found out that these people have obtained about 25,000 credit card #'s as well as debit card #'s and have been visiting different websites making small online payments to see if the cards work. Through my work Im able to find out who lives in certain households by typing in their address and William Duong does actually live at that address. I was told by someone at a second website that they made a transaction with, that the FBI and secret service are looking into this. I really would like to call Mr. Duong and let him know what I think of him, however I do not want to give him the heads up that they're on to him. If you've had this happen to you, it is no mistake. Someone indeed has gotten ahold of your info. The best thing to do is cancel those credit cards immediately.

    Angry

    I am a victim of this website tonight (2/9/06).

    I checked my account and they took 20 bucks out on 9th but the purchase was the 7th. I immediately called the bank and they can not trace it other than what I saw…. So I went to www.whois.net and tracked the website to the owner. I called him continuously and every time they had a excuse of William not being there or he'll be home friday night. What did you do and who did you contact? Help me, I know its only 20bucks but its still invasion of privacy. I will be reporting my card stolen.

    Hello everyone.

    I encourage anyone who may be a victim of Identify Theft to take the appropiate measures.
    There is not much point in contacting a possible thief, in fact one could inadvertently give more information about oneself.

    http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/idtheft.htm

    I will try to find out more information about Stop-Scam.com

    A family member works for the state... an agent will call me in a couple of days and they will investigate. I will let them know of this website forum and the stop-scam.com. The owener of stop-scam did in deed call me back but denies the charges. In the mean time i have my bank account locked down and cards are hot. Does anyone know EXACTLY where this is from?

    also i think i will take this all the way..


    i know i can prob get them for the following..

    identity theft
    invasion of privacy
    credit card fraud

    shoot i forget the others but name the other things you think we could get him for!
