Betamax VoIP accused of fraud

by alec on January 23, 2008

MyVoIPProvider.com has accused VoIP service provider BetaMax VoIP of credit card fraud.  They allege that BetaMax improperly charges small amounts of money to credit cards of members, and that because the amounts are small most companies do nothing about it.  BetaMax offers services under the names:

www.voipbuster.com, www.sipdiscount.com, www.voipcheap.com, www.voipcheap.co.uk, www.netappel.fr, www.sparvoip.de, www.voipstunt.com, www.internetcalls.com, www.voipdiscount.com, www.poivy.com, www.webcalldirect.com, www.freecall.com, www.nonoh.net, www.voipraider.com, www.justvoip.com, www.voipwise.com, www.budgetsip.com, www.smslisto.com, www.12voip.com,  www.lowratevoip.com, www.smsdiscount.com, www.voicetrading.com, www.voipbusterpro.com

This is a pretty serious charge.  I have to say that I've purchase from VoIPCheap before.  It's true that they ask for a credit card number up front, but I've not encountered the behavior described.  In any case, if you're a regular user of their services, you might want to check your credit card statements.
