I am NOT associated with bucksbill.com

Ok, there are a lot of people out there who are upset at being overcharged and defrauded by bucksbill.com.  Just check out the comments here and here.


Unfortunately, people are also emailing me directly because they (mistakenly) believe that I and/or this blog are associated with the fraudsters.  For example, check out this email:


I dont know what this is but there was money taken from my account for this and I Know I DID NOT purshase this I have tried to call you several times and can not get through. Please contact me Donna Spencer 270-***-**** or 270-***-****. DO NOT TAKE ANY MORE MONEY FROM MY ACCOUNT CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!!!


I and this blog are NOT associated with bucksbill.com in any way.


Please, remember that victims of overcharging and unauthorised charges can dispute the charge with their bank or building society and request that the charge be reversed.


The Federal Trade Commission has published an advisory for victims of credit card fraud or overcharging that can be seen here:

A fraudware web site that will *not* close. I see this: I try to close using Red X, I get this: I try to close using the Red X, which has always been sufficient in the past.  In this case, the dialogue box goes away but the god-damned window is still [...]
