Inphonic / IPI Wireless Sales / Be careful of these two companies

1 United States Review updated:

My credit card information was stolen recently and an illegal order placed through "IPI Wireless Sales"for $614.97. I received an invoice from Cingular Wireless for $279.28 for two phones that were ordered from Inphonic. Cingular suggested that I call Inphonic to let them know that the order was illegal. When I called them an gentleman who sounded like he was based in India began asking me for a lot of personal data such as date of birth before he would "help me". He said he was verifying information but did not answer when I asked if date of birth was a common field on an order. I hung up with the unconfirmed suspician that Inphonic may be a clearing house for illegal orders using stolen information. This was further supported by my Google search of IPI Wireless which yielded a report of an illegal withdrawl from man's bank account by IPI Wireless.

I reported my experience to Cingular's fraud section but still have not idea what happened to the other over $300 of the illegal order as Inphonic would not answer my questions. I believe that my electronic
bill payment to my Mastercard was somehow intercepted (likely a worm or spy bot of some type and I use three spy bot removal softwares nearly daily). Be carefull of these two companies and do not give them personal information that they try and squeeze out of you.

    IPI Wireless Sales - Unauthorized charge for $9.99
    United States

    Upon reviewing my credit card statement, i saw a charge for $9.99 from ipi*wireless sales. I tried to contact them at 888-378-8094, did not get an answer. I will try to get my card company to retrieve the $9.99. I do not know the location of this company.

    Thank you,

    Also ripped off by IPI Wireless, who apparently stole my debit card number and billed me for $9.63. I called bank and had card deactivated ASAP and am disputing the bogus "charge".

    I have the 9.99 charge from IPI as well but its origin is from and is the correct processing charge for my sprint phone order.

    IPI*WIRELESS charged my debit card $233.48!! Who are they?? I cancelled my card immediately (my bank was up on this and they called to notify me that they found a charge that wasn't inline with my spending habits (yea, I don't drop a few hundred a day). Again, who is IPI??
