Feds Investigating Pluto Data Scam

This is a bit of good news.

Federal authorities have opened an investigation into a rash of mysterious $30 and $40 charges appearing on consumer credit cards around the country, MSNBC.com has learned. The charges are for the purchase of DVDs and CDs from a company named "Pluto Data Ltd." Thousands of complaints about the charges have appeared on a Web site devoted to the mystery, with consumers saying they've never heard of the company.

I hope they catch the bastards behind this scam.

I just opened this afternoons mail and guess what? My Visa was charged $30.18 from PLUTO DATA LTD descrition # 18883238955. I have notified my bank and I will NOT be paying this charge. I advise all of you whom was charged with this purchase to do the same. -dangmad

We had the same charge of $39.99 appear on our Bank of America Visa. When I called the fraud rep was very familiar with this fraud and said hundreds of their customers were affected.
Always pay attention to charges on your statements.
