Yes. I bought $25 worth and they refunded my purchase, through a recent promo.
I wonder who posted that deal ;)

AsherO, I'm impressed that you followed the fraudulent link down it's rabbit hole.


And wow! how brazen they are to go after so much information.

Why not, once you’ve hooked the sucker, take them for all they’re worth!

So they didn't even validate anything? Not even CC numbers? I guess they first gather as much as they can and it just goes into a database and they do the testing separately

I used an online CC generator so it passes Luhn validation

Now I'm curious to know if they invested the (5 minutes) time to add a Luhn checker :)

New situation.
I got a call on my cell phone.  Automated voice says they have a code.  I press 1 to receive the code.
They say it has been approved.


Can I be allowing something with just mistaken 1 press of a phone key?
I didn't request a code. 
I assumed they were going to give me a code and I'd hear what it was supposed to be for.


What can they do with a "press 1 for yes" ?
I've been a bit worried all morning.

It’s likely just another strategy to screen people and trap the gullible ones who follow instructions, the real “fun stuff” comes later.

FYI: If you are going to open emails or click on the links do it from a burner device.

With the logos and the verify.payp.alcomsupportcenter.online url I'm sure more than one fell for it.

I once got something similar from arnazon.com   I wonder how many fell for that brilliant spelling?!

Do you have 2 factor authentication turned on for any service with verification by a phone call?

For several.
But I wasn't expecting a code. 
I asked my (adult) children if this was for/from them.  They said no.

You sure thee message said they were going to give you a code? And not just hit 1 to approve the sign in?

It may  have said "Do you approve/ agree / want to accept this code?" Or something like that.
I figured I'd write the code and ask my kids whose it is.
