    buying a 3si.org membership..

    So, I bought one recently, within 3 days ago.. And went to the members section to find 4 or 5 dead threads.. nothing of real worth and now I am getting phone calls from a fake collections agency on the number I gave them. I was just wondering if anyone else had similar problems with scam phone calls after signing up recently..? Appears as if I'll be on 3SGTO from now on..

    yea, I wish there was a refund option of some kind, but basically I canceled the membership within an hour of buying it.. best 15.00 I've ever spent.. (even though they only took out a dollar and then put it back in my account..

    That sucks! It doesn't surprise me though. Auto Forums = anything for a buck.

    the one dollar charge was a check to see if your card was real or not. they charge went through, so they cancel that one dollar charge and then go to charge you for the full value of your purchase. many online stores will do this to check to see if you are a real person.

    sometimes scammers will do this, too in order to see if they've somehow obtained valid credit card numbers.

    It could be a coincidence, what about email? I guess they already had that though.

    Like donating money to a corporate telemarketing company. They don't sponsor NG and they're a disgrace to the platform. You basically paid them to fill their own wallets.
