Potential fraud alert

2011-11-21, 23:52 PM

So, back in mid-September, I ordered my TPT from the Lenovo online store, with a pile of accessories; subsequently, in October, I ordered a couple of extra chargers from them. Both times it was the same credit card.

 

Today, I got a call from the card company asking me if I knew about a $3,900 or so charge from the "Lenovo Group."

 

I didn't, of course (the September charge did wait until my TPT shipped -- in late October -- but it's long past, paid, and done -- not to mention $3K less).

 

Then, later today, someone tried to change the credit card's billing address and add users to it. Needless to say, it's been cancelled.

 

But, given the fraudlent attempt to use Lenovo as a sort of Trojan Horse for this bogus transaction, I recommend that anyone who's dealt with Lenovo pay attention to the accounts they've used. HPH

Hmm. I don't see an "edit" feature, so I'll add this: that same credit card was registered with the Lenovo App Store, too, and I'd used it for something or other. HPH

 

Edit: Oh, yeah -- thanks, GMAC!
