Word on the Street: Don’t Use Your Credit Card at Travelers Rest Wal-Mart
I got an email from a tipster who says her debit card number was stolen and used last Tuesday. She found charges she didn’t make for a company called Voxox as well as a PC game charge. Voxox is a cell phone and calling card company that does a lot of overseas business including in the scam capitol of the world – Nigeria. This is especially troubling since the feds just broke up a cigarette smuggling ring in Columbia that was using the proceeds to finance Islamic terrorists. Since many African states (including Nigeria) are struggling with rising Islamic militancy scams that funnel funds or equipment to those states are likely ending up helping the Jihad. Disposable cells, like Voxox use,are used in the construction of improvised explosive devices.
The tipster is adamant that she had only used the card at the Travelers Rest Wal-Mart prior to the theft and several people in the last few months have told me the same thing. Aside from reporting this to the police I advise people to get cash from somewhere else and shop at Wal-Mart without using your cards. You could be inadvertently funding suicide bombings.
