I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been duped with reoccurring fraudulent credit card charges.
For several months my credit card had a recurring charge from a company MVQ Shop Essentials. It actually showed up as MVQ Shop Essentials CT and I’m from Connecticut and visit there frequently, so I can see how I may have overlooked it at the time. As the months went by, I had convinced myself they were charges from Amazon. I was wrong. I found this has been happening to other people. Many of us have no recollection of signing up for this scam. We’ve never received anything for our money. I was suprised to see a few people mention restaurant.com and I did make a purchase from them years ago. It’s possible I clicked something and accidently signed up, but I have no reason to sign up for anything from these people.
My bank, Chase, would only refund the latest charge. I’ll call this company to see what they say but it doesn’t look good.
If anyone out there is experiencing this fraudulent activity on your card, call up your bank and put a stop to it. Save yourself by catching it early. I didn’t and will be paying for my lack of attention.
