I was just paying a CC bill online and noticed a charge for the following:

WWW.THEGREATSOFTWARE.C CHISINAU MDA

I don't even know what that is. Google search comes up with Russian basketball team and the domain comes up under whois.net as being registered in Russia as well.

What a pain in the arse.:disgust: Closed account immediately and disputed the charge.

Anyone else ever hear of this one?

Definitely sounds like a scam, especially coming out of Russia... what was the charge worth?

$7.35 and showed up under expense type "Legal And Professional".

If they only got you for $7.35, they deserve it!

Yeah - but it only could've been done it by guessing.:| And who knows how many others get these "small charges" that are overlooked.

Either you have the cheapest legal services I have ever seen, or it is a scam:D Good luck figuring it out.

Yes, that is the site that is registered with Russian contact. CC company is cool, but still a BIG PITA.

"$7.35 for 2000000 e-mail addresses..."

Damnit, that's the real pisser in that it was a "guess."

NOTE: CC Company has already sent new card with different number and posted Credit to account.:)
