Home/Self / Scammed for over $5000.00
I was literally conned into investing in this credit card processing machine business which sounded legitimate because every business needs credit card processing machines, so I was asked to put down $250.00 and $19.95/mo. The man told me that if I wasn't satisfied within a year I would get my money back.
I was contacted a couple days later and the person that contacted me then was a fast salesman and he fast talked his way into my credit card for $5000. He told me that people were doing it every day and that I was getting in on a very good deal. I should have known that if it sounded too good to be true, it was. I am now trying to figure out just what to do to try and stop them from taking out the $19.95 from my credit card monthly, and persue my banks to try and show that fraud was done and try to get the charges reversed. I don't know if that is possible or not.
I wonder if anyone else has had this problem. I am a retired widow and don't have this kind of money to throw around. I just wanted to make a little money to spend.
I would appreciate hearing from other people who have experienced the same thing.
