Maybe not scammed but might be.

 

Ever receive  by  US mail those cards which offer some fabulous "governent" deal?

 

These cards have  most all our personal  information.  Must be the real thing,right?

 

 Just be sure a look at the very  bottom of these cards (or maybe a letter  with genuine looking letterhead).  There where the print is soooo  small, one needs several magnifying glasses to even see let alone read!

 

And those tiny letters tell us, not quoting, "no such animal."   And one sinks deeper and deeper all because "we did not read the 'fine print.'"

 

I have come close until I found out what that small print said.  Hope we all do not fall victim to yet another SCAM!

 

Thanks for this subject!

The timing of this was great.  I just received an e-mail with the subject line "Get your exclusive Trump two dollar bill."  Needless to say, I deleted it without opening it.  I'm not making a political statement, it's just that it is obviously a scam.

What do you think of the extra fees colleges charge in addition to their already high tuition?  They need to be investigated when admins get more money tha the professors.  Recently NYU was investigated and junk fees were added that amounted to over $5000 and showed that CEOs were making millions and living in luxury in condos with heated floors, marble bathrooms, etc. while these kids struggle to repay debt.  Also women are joining The Sugar  Baby University online to repay college debt.  The schools are getting billions in endowments while as a nonprofit don't pay taxes.   Trump should start making them pay not squeezing money out of kids who are dropping out bc they can't afford the high cost of a college education.  The kids are being SCAMMED!!!  Bernie where are you now??

I honestly feel this pain...

 

 

Great and thank you for acknowleding from the outset this was not "Coach outlet" address/site.

 

You successfully filed dispute and appears you won. Congrats on that!

 

Thanks for sharing. Re-iterate the point that check for bonified site (always check, including affiliation(s) e.g., Coach = Coachoutlet vs hotdeals.xyz).
