Johnleander, You should run a full virus scan, since you have been on the buy-hot site. There are reports of sites from this IP spreading viruses.

Hi Yngoldman,

Welcome to Scamwarners

I am sorry to hear that these scammers have stolen from you.

Please read up in our recovery scam section on the various ways they try to steal more of your money, you can click on this link to go straight there viewforum.php?f=14

Also be aware that scammers often see past victims as being more likely to send money to a different scam so please be extra careful with any emails you receive.

If you have given any of your personal details and in particular your bank details, please contact your bank, advise them of the situation and have the account number changed, it is a small amount of inconvenience but well worth the effort for the peace of mind

And of course, if you have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask

Hi.
I was looking at those prices,example vehicles are so low price,that it´s not possible
company to sell them and stay alive.
By the way,Sara was online.
I think that is a scam business.

Every day, we are assaulted by stories of stupid people -- many of whom use their stupidity for personal gain. From time to time, though, we hear of those who strive to achieve new levels of stupidity.

^^ You are welcome!! If you were on that site, please make sure you run a virus scan. There were some reports that it was spreading a virus/trojan a while ago.

@ JohnLeander: How are they asking for payment? You may be able to claim the money back depending on how you paid and what country you live in.

Thanks for pointing out the new details, but be careful on that site. You should definitely run an AV scan.

EDIT: have those bank accounts been reported?

Wish I would have known about scamwarners last thursday... I sent $450 to Buy-Hot.com via western union for a Sony PC. Sara was the person I worked with online. The email I used for "her" was [email protected] Is there any way to retrieve any of the money? Besides running virus checks - is there anything else I should do???

Hi midwesterner,

Welcome to Scamwarners,

Unfortunately there is no way to get your money back, once picked up from Western Union it is gone forever.

The best advice i can give you now is to be on the look out for more scams, scammers are persistent buggers and will continue to try different methods to try and get you to send more money, this could come in the form of a completely new scam or it could be a recovery scam, delete and forget is normally the best thing to do

Also, feel free to ask if you are ever in doubt
