Have you ever received a contact request on Skype from someone you don’t know?This may happen from time to time, particularly if your Skype name is publically searchable.Once I came to terms with my finances, I started to look for small but regular expenses I could eliminate.By far, the least of my expenses was my monthly Netflix bill of .67 (my subscription plus tax).The site doesn’t even use the HTTP secure protocol (which would give the URL the “https://…” prefix), so our dating adventure ends here.
All this makes it obvious that instead of chatting with a real person we are in fact dealing with a chat bot.
There goes our free date and at the same time this reveals the true aim of this scam: credit card fraud.
“Safe Secure Encrypted” sounds good, but unfortunately we are not convinced of the accuracy of this statement.
The bank markets this card to users who keep a balance on their accounts to encourage them to slowly pay it down, but I use it strategically.
For this trick, you’ll pay off your balance in full every month.
It’s not a lot, but it seemed like I could find a creative way to get around the expense.
