I would suggest that you do some research on scams. This is an old scam, and if you were not aware, I think a bit of online, scam-education, may be in order for you.


Just think. The world was built by the lowest bidder.

Happened to me a week after I bought my new notebook last fall. Did not see any alerts about this until about 4 months later. They managed to steal $400 from us right before Thanksgiving last year. 😑
