Steve’s Response

There are a number of warning signs when you click on the apply now button on the Facebook listing you sent.

That apply now takes you to a site other than Walmart. It goes to a page for an unrelated product. shepn.info/articles/review-dyson-v11-outsize-a-whole-home-stick-vac – Source

It seems this same scheme has been used for other products as well.

It also appears there are multiple posts with the same pitch. I noticed the post I found was added on June 9th but the one you sent was on June 11th.

The landing page shows you some BS questions and then asks you to gues which box your prize is in.

It is easy to miss the fine print at the top of the page. Follow my yellow arrow. Once you submit your information it will lead to a $44 monthly recurring charge.

The terms on the CloudBrainGames.com site say the grill offer is a chance to win a grill and not actually purchasing one. Read the terms here.

The site terms say the company behind this is Backbyte LLC, 6627 Forest Ave, Ridgewood, NY, 11385. Yes, this will really bite you in the back.

I had to shake my head when I read this in the terms, “14. LAW: A Subscription(s) is void where prohibited by law. These Subscription(s) and Billing terms and any Subscription(s) available through Backbyte shall be governed by the laws of UNKNOWN.”

Here is What I Would Suggest Doing ASAP.

  1. Contact the credit card company and immediately report the transaction as fraud. Ask for a new credit card with a different number. Fraud is why people should NEVER USE A DEBIT CARD.
  2. You say you live in NC. You should immediately file a complaint with the Attorney Generals’ office. Click here.
  3. You could also file a complaint with the NY Attorney Generals’ office since that is where the company claims to be. Click here.
