    Fraud Alert - Personal Choice Outfitters Suspected

    I recently entered login information for a potential purchases from an internet web site called "Personal Choice Outfitters.com". While I didn't purchase anything, two separate $25 unauthorized charges appeared on my checking account on 1-28-13 under the line item " COF RETAIL SRVCSOnline Pmt" and my credit union was unable to verify the source of the charges. Needless to say, my husband & I both filed fraud alerts with TransUnion, notified our Life Lock service and are jumping through the ropes to protect all of our financial accounts.

    Does anyone know anything about this company?

    Welcome from South Carolina...

    Never heard of em!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    There are more.
    Seems as though they have scammed a lot of people. Charging their credit cards and never shipping anything out.

    Their address shows as Wisteria Hair & Nails - so even the business location is fraudulent.

    Welcome from Wisconsin & thanks for the heads up! That's one of the main reasons I elect not to conduct business on the web.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Not aware of the company, but will keep my eyes open for them.

    just fyi, COF card and retail services are the former household bank services which have just been sold to CapOne.
    If you make a payment on an existing HSBC account it will now show as COF services.
