    Hey,

    So my mum is not the smartest person in the world. She's a typical person who buy's everything on infomercials and has gotten herself into some pyramid schemes as well.

    Well anyway, a few weeks back someone in Aussie got my mums credit card details and went crazy and were like how the fuck did that happen. Well guess what it was about to happen again!

    People are ringing our house and saying their from Aussie when the outsourced people from India. They then try to sell my mum shit, but this time they were trying to sell her cheap travel to Aussie because were going to melbourne in 2 weeks.

    I could smell a scam coming on. Then I told mum, how the fuck did they get our number and she asked the guy. He gave some total BS answer. Then he asked for mum's credit card number and said he had no website. WTF, me and my dad are like FUCK NO!!!! Then he says he has a website. http://www.holidayfever.com.au. It redirect to a .info which is full of cpa links. My mum thinks it legit and wanted to sign up. Fuck me she is on the edge of being mentally retarded. The dude is then trying to charge $150 for nothing and then redirecting us to hotelclub via his cpa link and making more money out of her.

    Fuck me, so my mum is going ape shit that we don't think it's legit. Some people just don't learn.....

    come up with a similar sales pitch and have a friend call the house and get her CC number. then charge a few thousand to it to your paypal or other merchant account you own so you can give it back to her. maybe then she will learn.

    Why not just put up a quickie dupe site and show your mum how easy it is to make such a site [or better]? And show her the exact or similar links to your own cpa offers? Some people just need to be shown they are wrong b4 they admit it. My gf is the same--she won't be wrong until she is proven wrong w/o a shadow of a doubt...usually to her detriment.

    1 - Cancel the credit card, and tell that was a fraud.
    2 -if its a cpa offer, contact the offer owner and explain the blackhat, they will need to give your money back.
    3 - try to use the Whois to findout his contact

    Haha, it's not about being smart at this point, she just cannot let it go, she is trying to prove you all wrong.

    She's just being stubborn, and rebelling against the two men trying to run her life.
    Get her email, send her a nicely written letter pretending to be from some reputable fraudbuster website and have it start with "it has come to our attention that you are being targeted by scammers from (such and such company.. etc..."

    Also be sure you add a real website like scam.com linking to the type of scam she's getting. Of course she must never know you sent the email. People with this sort of mentality do not want anyone dictating anything to them.

    End of story.

    Now if that does not convince her, like that other poster I would like her email address to run some offers.

    I think you should you should get her some professional mental help; seriously I'm not making fun of her. There's something obviously wrong there if she doesn't listen to you.

    Yea, too much effort lol, when in the end I'm gonna really gain anything and she will be even more fucked off with me.

    LOL

    Indeed. That's why I brought a Macbook yesterday. Woop

    Hahha, she would spend 2 hours signing up :p

    Yea, I could but it's gonna take me hours to do so and I think she won't believe any more travel stuff but for a another niche sure.

    Yea it's a join CC with my dad and they already cancelled last time it happened which was nearly 2 months ago.

    I whoised the dude, seems like he's from Hong Kong. Not too sure. The site is hosted in the UK, so it's really fishy. Even got a fake company up. I'm thinking of contacting clixgalore which is what he is using.

    Well he outsourced the call, but I would love to do that. Plus we don't have Caller ID at home so I don't know what his number is.

    Hmm yea that might work. Lol for the second point

    Puff I'm not spending 10 hours on a site to only make $150.

    Ok, well shes not going to believe in any more travel offers, maybe another niche will work in the future.

    Dude, My dad has tried like 3 times before and it doesn't work! God dammit :(
    Indeed. She says I spend too much time on the computer and she doesn't get how $5k suddenly turns up in my bank account and why I get various checques for $1000 even now and again :p

    search for a blog or report where a dissatisfied customer talks about their experience.
    If someone else calls them a scam artist maybe your mom will have second thoughts.

FUCK THESE SCAMMERS
