Thread Details

I got e-mails from CoffeeMate Brew Crew and Consumer Say last night about deactivating my inactive accounts. I went to look for my Brew Crew invite and I didn't have one, so I contacted them for a new one (I don't know why, though).

Consumer Say was easy. I logged in and had a whopping $0.00 balance. I started re-registering, and they wanted my credit card account numbers and passwords.

WTF? ARE THEY CRAZY

If they asked for credit cards numbers it sounds like a scam to me. Did you contact Consumer Say and ask if they sent the email?

This was required upon signing up for ConsumerSay. You probably originally signed up though another panel, or perhaps started the sign up but never finished when you found out what was required. I think Lightspeed was offering $10 to sign up for ConsumerSay though them for a while. I kept getting this offer over and over on Lightspeed.

ConsumerSay not just wants your credit card numbers, they want your log in user id's and passwords to the credit card company websites. It's their shtick. It is legit, although I'm not sure how trustworthy it is.

Sounds scary to me. I don't even like giving out credit card numbers when I buy something online. I have that one moment's hesitation....and then buy the product anyway.
