    I got scammed

    ....not that I like to admit that---but it happened

    And---yes--it was a form of greed that got me---an offer too good to be true

    I could construct a defense to mitigate my lapse of good sense---but at the end of the day--I did it.

    I saw something on the web about a bottle of CBD oil at an amazingly low "introductory" price of $4.97!

    Forgetting about it until a few days latter when I saw the charge show up from an unknown vendor (Snapbodypro) I looked them up---and found out I have been had by what appears to be a successful ongoing scam. Their MO is to wait a few days and then put through a bigger charge on your card information---so I was on the watch for it to show up again.

    What showed up today was an alert from Chase with what they suspected was a bogus charge from Snapbodypro--this time for $89 and change. So---I'm out $4.97 (not worth going after) and a cheap lesson in not being stupid

    ..at least I am not alone.

    Nothing like being home asleep at 3 a.m. in the morning and get a call from American Express security asking you if you have used your card at a hotel in Toronto Canada in the last 30 minutes.

    Visa/Mastercard would not allow the issuer to call you at that time.

    I don't know I don't use either of those cards. American Express is basically a necessary in my line of business.
