pricechopping.comdecline of my card - a way to get credit card info?

C Sep 02, 2018 Review updated:

They declined my card with a perfectly adequate amount of credit available. They were advertising an item for quite a bit less than anyone else - just enough of a temptation to entice me to buy from them even though I had read about some red flags. My bad - Seems like a good way for them to gather credit card info. I may have my number changed as they could wait a while and then use the number when my guard is down, they have not put the charge through as of one day later. Another website which I stupidly ignored said that they are structured online in such a way that you could not determine where they are physically located. It said that it MAY be in Canada but they couldn't tell and this could be because they do not want spam but that many fraudsters use this as a way to stay undetected. The biggest red flag I ignored is that their website, though it has apparently hundreds or thousands of items, does not have a home page. Its home page is simply an item that is for sale (an office chair).

    I just did the same thing, declined card. Now am not sure if the site is even legit. Trying to search online and cannot find any information. I guess I will keep a watch on my credit just in case.

    It looks like the domain "" was registered just a few months ago, and agree that the site looks very suspicious with its lack of information/"machine-generated feel". It came up as the cheapest seller for a microwave oven I'm looking to buy, but I think I'll pay an extra $10-15 and order from a more reputable vendor. Good luck and hope your CC isn't stolen.

    Any updates now? I'm thinking of buying something from there and I'm holding back because of a lack of response from customer service.

    Same experience. Card declined. Tried a 2nd. Same thing. No phone numbers or contact info. Lowball price on a random item I was shopping for. Beware!

    I also tried to purchase a King 18 in platform bed. Both of my credit cards were declined. I sent 4 different emails questioning why. Both cards were varified by the bank to be good?

    I was refussed over and over for several days even though the bank said the cards were never ran. Ate they going to rip me off later? The price on the King platform bed 18 in high for storage underneath seemed good. But still have not been able to complete the order.

    **********************EVERYONE IN THIS LINK WHO HAS ALREADY PUT IN CARD INFORMATION*********************

    If you are able to turn off your card through a mobile app or bank phone call, do so NOW! Call your bank ASAP and tell them what happened and request a new card.
    Also, to get this website shut off the internet so they can't scam anymore people go to the following website and report them as a scam :

    Once you are on the website, go down to the last list on the page labeled : "Report Scams And Frauds"
    Find "International Scams" on the list and click the highlighted website
    After you've reached the website, click the first box labeled "Online Shopping/Ecommerce Service/Computer Equipment"
    From there you will be directed to a different page, just click "online shopping" and go from there.

    Scams like these piss me off because they seem so harmless, but I'm tired of having to look through reviews to be able to shop on a certain website. Please report to get them deleted off of media and, hopefully, thrown in jail for probably scamming many people.

    @FreakingDanielle19 Also, I meant to put at the bottom of this ^

    If you go to the website to report them, when it ask the person's name or their title, just put the website name.

    I read the reviews before placing my order so I used a virtual account number. I was declined because of "test mode". I immediately closed the virtual number.

    This site is a scam.

    I checked BBB and they have no record of this site. Along with the other comments, definitely threw up a red flag for me.

    It’s a scam! Tried to buy a table a few months back from this price website and got worried after my credit card kept getting declined so I called Bank of America to see why it kept got declined twice and they said they didn’t see any “suspicious activity” on my forward to yesterday...I got calls/emails/texts from Bank of America to approve all these “foreign transaction fees” and out of country purchases that were trying to be made. I immediately cancelled that card and ordered a new one. I can only assume after reading all the other reviews that they took my credit card info and waited a few months to try my card once I had essentially “forgotten about them” and rest assured I’m almost positive it was from this website that they got ahold of my credit card info!

    @jessica129 I also paid the extra $85 and ended up ordering my table from lesson learned that sometimes just becuase it might be cheaper somewhere else doesn’t make it a smarter buy. Hope this helps anyone in the near future who might be tempted like me to buy something from This website.

    Anyone had any updates?

    I had the same story about the card. Got declined. It said the testing mode was used but not a test card.

    Did anyone get charged? Do we need to block the cards?

    Same as everyone else. Found them by shopping at google, looked at their site, found what I was looking for, price was very competitive, then it would no accept my card. November 17, 2018
