Calisto Trading Company — Huge scam
Calisto Trading Company is a HUGE scam!! I got an email from this company promising to get paid $1500 a month pulse 8% commission for every cash transaction that I would do. This company boasts itself to be a company that does depository services and brokerage services for it's clients. They even go as far as to say they help with legal issues. When you first look at the website you may think that the company in a legitimate website, but its sooo NOT!!! http://www.calisto-trading.com/e/index.php?page=r_14
They look very clean and polished on the outside but they ARE NOT AT ALL!!!
For giggles and smiles I decided that I would go ahead and give them a try. Considering that I do have more than one bank account, and I don’t keep much in one of them I decided to try it out. I did two transactions that went to some place in Moldova (some small country in Europe). They sent me two transactions over the past two weeks; One for $4490 and the other for $4954.48. My commission was to be 8% and out of my commission I had to pay the Western Union fee of 3%. So after the Western Union fee had been paid for the first transaction, I received $184.4 and on the second transaction, I received $214.16. On the second transaction I felt like something just didn’t feel right in my gut about this so I thought this Friday, when they send the third transaction, I would just not do it anymore. I had never heard of the illegal implications of this type of thing but It just didn’t feel right to me, so I went to the bank this morning to check my bank account (that I don’t keep money in) only to find out that some company in Kelberg County, TX had taken the last $14.65 that was left in that account and caused me to receive an over draft fee of $25. The moment I realized that they attempted to try to take the full $10, 000 out of my bank account, because the bank teller told me what the amount was, I closed the account, and paid off the overdraft fee that I had received; It’s a good thing that I don’t keep a lot of money in that account because I would have been taken for every penny and maybe even more.
Needless to say, I ended up being one of the lucky ones because my husband thought I should have kept the first transaction. Seeing that I’m a pretty honest person I just went along for the ride, only to find out that they were nothing like what they appeared to be. The cool thing about this entire experience is that I ended up being the one on top, because if you think about it they were only able to take $14.65 from my account when I was paid by them $398.56 - $14.65 -$25 overdraft fee = $358.91. Not too bad for a scam. Suckers!!! :sunglasses:
ON AN END NOTE, WHAT EVER YOU DO DON’T DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE A HUGE SCAM!!! TAKE IT FROM ME I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE.
