    It has been brought to my attention that there has been some sharing of credit card information between members on this forum for purposes of completing online offers. Do not do this under any cir***stances. If you are providing CC info to people, you are putting yourself at a great risk especially if it is your parents credit card. Your information can be used or share with others and you could very easily become the victim of fraudulent charges. If someone has provided you with CC information in order for you to complete an offer for them, you have virtually no way to verify the CC information truely belongs to that person and you could very well be committing fraud using stolen credit card information. In this case, you are at fault and you will face the consequences of using the stolen information. Please be aware of the dangers of this type of action and do not share CC information and if someone tries to share CC information with you, please report it to myself or another moderator.

    Thanks.

    I'm all for killing the "PSP Scams" sub-forum myself. All it's become is a place for others to share information on completing online offers for rewards.

    The last time I checked, this sort of thing was advertising and this is a PSP modification fansite. All this sort of free offers and refferals business should be relegated to one's signature.

    yeah. i think the Scams section should just be about sites that are selling fakes memory sticks, psp's, or psp accessories. they have forums to share CC info and get referrals.

    The CC info, as far as I know, is prepaid credit cards. However, unless they're giving them the cards for their own use forever, it's considered scamming

    the scams section was supposed to be a part of the forum were you could post warnings about such scams, hence the name 'scams'..

    That's not the only issue here. The fact is, we have a sub-forum set up to alert others to possible PSP scams. This sub-forum is instead being used by people to share information on websites that reward you to complete forms. Only a few of them actually reward a PSP.

    I don't think the fine folks who modmin this site would enjoy preening through information they would not usually enjoy looking at just to make sure credit card numbers don't slip through. It's unfair.

    This is a PSP modification fan forum, not a pay money to complete forms fan forum. If people really want to help each other earn money on such websites, there is nothing preventing them from visiting forums specialized in such ventures or opening thier own forums or even advertising the fact in their signature.

    The fact is this: We've let this gone on too long and now tainted credit card information was being passed around. This is completely unaccceptable and the easiest way to prevent future instances of fraud occuring is to simply remove the sub-forum responsible for this behaviour.

    Yes, but the difference is that a sub-forum like this leads to fraud happening. I have a hard time believing that our tech and Anything Goes could contribute towards such behaviour.

    If you really use the "scams" sub-forum, why do you use it? What is so hard about joining a forum set up to deal with form filling and refferals? Moreover, such a forum would be better equipped to handle any questions you have about the services you want to use.

    i dont see how that offer shit is a scam anyway. arent scams when you get ripped off on a purchase online/real world? and the ones here dont seem to be scams. everyone says there legite. so they shouldnt be there.
