    Logged into an old email of mine to find i an email from "receipts@epoch.com"
    Never heard of this site until today but far as i can see it's pretty much an alternative to paypal. I have been billed £6.40 to myfreecams.com for 95 tokens
    I do not own an account on this site let alone use it. It's given me all the details the person has used such as Username, Password, Name which are all just random.

    Seems like a real email to me but just wanted to make sure, maybe some of you have received one before?
    Either way contacted epoch which basically said we can't help you so now i'm about to get in contact with myfreecams and try and get this money refunded.

    If i was to go to my bank would it be possible to stop the payment coming out or even refund/cancel it from there?

    How did someone charge an account of yours with just your email? I'd be more concerned about who has your account information. Either someone accidently entered the wrong email to their legit purchase, or someone stole your information somehow.

    I was just speaking to a few mates and that came up, i'm 100% sure no one has my account information. It's not a random email you'd put in by accident, i just tried logging into the account but the password was wrong, i then tried to recover the password but according to them the email is not registered to any account. Think i'm safe now that i think about it but ill head to the bank in the morning just to make sure i have no been charged for anything.

    Typical phishing attempt. Somebody wants to find out the passwords that are used in connection with your email by letting people enter their favorite passwords.
