Since the first posting about this scam about 10 days ago, Google Treasure Chest – it’s a scam and a half! alone has attracted over 3000 page views. From these, about 100, sometimes desperate, people have commented and admitted that they’ve been sucked into the scam on that and the other postings around the subject.
Make from these numbers what you will.
- Maybe it means I’ve stopped over 2000 people getting ripped off?
- Maybe, as I suspect, most people don’t like to admit they’ve been made to look a chump – and I can empathise with that.
I’m in a computer-free zone for a day or two so any further comments will be held for moderation. If I didn’t, I’d have about 3000 comments of viagra garbage from our friends in St Petersburg and Shanghai which would make information very hard to find! The comments list would be about a mile long…
So until then, if you’ve been conned by the Google Treasure Chest/kit/pack and the host of related websites:
- Don’t give up
- Act swiftly
- Call one of the numbers that we’ve found that works from people’s comments under the postings
- Cancel the subscription
- Warn your bank if necessary
- Change your credit card if necessary
You can still leave information and tips for other victims, but if you’ve not commented before, your comment won’t show immediately. As a resource for others, all information is valuable, so please post away!
I’ll be back
