|Pseudonym||PLEVO - The World's Most Innovative Smart L|
|Url / Website||xinsuangushi.com|
|Scam contents||I was using my Instagram and got a Ad that was showing an “PLEVO SUITCASE” Only in $0.01, I click on shop now and that moved to: |
I liked it so I moved to purchase it. After that I add this into my shopping cart and move to next step- that was registration and fill some shipping address details after completing registration process 1 popup msg comes on my screen that was as below:
You Should Know Before Purchasing:
As we cooperate with MasterCard to hold this $0.01 purchase activity , so you can only succeed to pay with MasterCard. To successfully participate in this $0.01 purchase activity, you need to meet 2 requirements:
1.You should pay with MasterCard;
2.Your card must have the international payment function.
You can only purchase successfully when meeting the 2 requirements. If not, our system will block your IP address and you can never participate our $0.01 purchase activity.
After that the total amount of order was coming $4.91 only. So I process for next I enter my master card details there and click yes.
I then got a declined message citing Insufficient Funds. I used my prepaid mastercard which I have about $80 USD. The total payment was $4.91, looked like they were trying to charge over $80 from my card and failed.
I almost got scammed. So like to warn people about this site.

It was for a plevo luggages for a $0.01. I went through the same process except the decline me citing Insufficient Funds. I used my prepaid mastercard which I have about $80 USD. The total payment was $4.91, looked like they were trying to charge over $80 from my card and failed.
Why would my charged be declined if the total payment is only $4.91 USD?
