High Street Max Scam
Recently, a friend of mine was caught out by a what can best be described as a scam from High Street Max when buying a holiday from www.lastminute.com. After a quick search on the Internet, I soon came across other people who have been caught by this scam. Although deceptive, it is not illegal and the only way to avoid similar scams is to pay close attention to the small print when you buy online.
I wont go into detail about this scam, as it is described in more detail on the Mirror’s investigative blog page, which can be seen at http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/investigations/2008/07/mysterious-credit-card-charges.html.
