About Ellen F. Rosenblum
Attorney General John Kroger is warning consumers about a Web site that is being used to rip off consumers who try to buy an iPhone from it.
The Web site is: http://chul8804.com
A Hillsboro man saw an ad for the Web site in Craig's List in late May. It offered a new iPhone 3G 16GB for $465. The ad requested payment with a Green Dot MoneyPak card. The scammer took the money, but never sent the phone.
The call back number he gave was for the City of Atlanta's subway system.
The Oregon Department of Justice is seeking to shut down the Web site. In the meantime, consumers should avoid it.
In addition, consumers should be extremely careful about paying for products in advance with Green Dot prepaid cards or wire transfer services, especially if they have not purchased from the vendor before.
