Wagging Tail Media

Postby lovibration » Fri Aug 14, 2009 8:01 pm

Does anyone know anything about this company Waggin Tail Media? I notices two charges on my AMEX statement, one for $400 and one for $600. I dont recall the charges (I'm a bit forgetful), so I submitted an inquiry. Then I did a bit more research and found some fishy things.

First, there is a press release about a big deal they did with Dell. I couldn't find a single news article about such a deal.

Some hits come up on google under scam websites, but when you follow them, there is no information on the sites. If you check the cached version of the pages, the company name comes up, but the link comes up with nothing. It's as if someone has deleted all negative information on this company.

Their website looks very professional, waggingtailmedia.net. The whois lookup comes up some guy named Scott Barker, the address is a residence. The technical contact looks to be a business. The number is disconnected.

When I google some of the wording from the website, another website pops up, some kind of back-end version of the site. The URL is karitascms.com and is registered to some domain hosting company in Denmark.

I'm not very tech savvy. Can anyone figure out what all this means? It really rubs the the wrong way when someone tries to get one over on me. When I called Amex, they said this was the fourth dispute in the last two days that that rep had encountered. Crazy. Anyone else have any info?

Got to agree with the guy above me. I dont know what kind of company would be calling themselves that name unless theyre up to some no good stuff.

Hi, I've also had a tarnsaction for "Wagging Tail Media" on my credit card statement, I asked my bank to dispute the transaction as I had no recollection of doing business with a company with such an odd name.

I play poker online at Full Tilt Poker and I got a notification from them that my bank had contacted them to dispute a transaction, the one that was from Wagging Tail Media. I contacted FTP to calify the bussiness afficliation between them and WTM, they have stated they have no relationship with this company and they are not a third party payment processor. I've tried to resolve the matter myself by contacting WTM, they only have a fax number and as of yet haven't replied to my e-mails, it looks like a dummy company used to make fraudulant transactions, thats my guess.

I'll let you know what my bank finds out as they continue their investigation, this has all happened in the last 10 days.

Yeah, it's Full Tilt. Thank the federal government for the confusion.

Another victim of the wagging tail

Postby Kenshiro_tb » Thu Oct 22, 2009 11:46 am

One fine day... i opened by chance a letter sent to me by amex.
On that letter i found out that on my amex account there were lots of consecutive expenses looking like this:
200$
Internet transaction
200$
Internet transaction
200$
Internet transaction
200$
Internet transaction
200$
Internet transaction
500$
Internet transaction
500$
Internet transaction
300$
Internet transaction
300$
Internet transaction
300$
Internet transaction

Since i didn't recall having bought all that stuff on the internet in a single day (nor in my life)...
i made a phone call to amex support center. The girl that answered made a quick search and discovered that the money had been given to the infamous "Wagging tail media". She told me that it was a society affiliated to another one whose core business are online bets.
The problem is that i discovered this just now, reading the letter, but the expenses were made on the 5th of april. So amex just told me that nothing can be done because the time limit for opening a claim has already expired.
Is that true? Does anyone knows if there is something that can be done?
What i ask myself is... since this society is well known for being used to make cons online, since my expenses were all very small and distributed in time, i'm surprised that amex security systems couldn't spot this transacion as suspect since it is a clear anomaly in my usual account expenses.
I thank you all in advance for the attention you dedicated to my problem :(

I am surprised to hear American Express wouldn't reverse the charges. They are usually the best. I suppose though their service has gone downhill as of lately.

I think the trouble is that 6 months had passed between the time of the charges and the dispute.

I also was concerned when I saw the charge from waggingtailmedia. I have since learned that it was my deposit from ultimate bet poker site. I hope that this clears it up for some of you who may be concerned.
