WebsiteBackup.com Billing Scam

 

Beware of this fake but pretty convincing invoice from WebsiteBackup.com. Since my company is small I immediately recognized this as a service that we didn’t sign up for. If you send in the $70, you’re signing up whatever service they’re offering.

From the fine print on the back of the invoice: 

We offer a 10-day money-back guarantee from your initial WebsiteBackup plan sign up date. Sign up date is considered the date WebsiteBackup receives your payment. After the 10-day period, there are no refunds. However, you may still cancel your account at any time.

I’m guessing they are able to stay in existence because they probably do offer a service, though based on their method of duping customers, it must be of dubious quality.
