「I want to make an announcement. I had a bad experience that I was about to be a victim of the scam.
I tried to buy Coach bags on the Internet online shop. I have used the outlet Coach online site twice before. After I got a letter from Coach Company, I always could access the address. But I was busy this time and so I accessed the site by searching for the words, " Coach, outlet, online".
This was an imitation. Because the site was completely copied, I did not notice it was a fake. And I put in my card number to buy from them.
After one week pasted, I checked my account. The shop did not send the bags and the view was " pending". Pending means it was resolved. I had doubts so I checked the details of the bill from the credit card company. Then there were two bills (payments) which I had not bought. The bill will demand payment next month. I told the details to the credit card company's staff and I did not want to pay.
This site was a false site. The staff told me the payment indicated you bought a Chinese Internet-related product. She could understand the situation and I did not need to pay it.
And I stopped my credit card afterwards and I changed it. The reason is they know my card number. Be careful about a fake site. We can distinguish if we know some check points. For example, “https”( plus “s”) is a safe site, and in front of the address , we can see the logotype.」
