    Hi,

    I am new to the forum. I saw an interesting ad the other day on FB about this Via Buy credit card (top-up). I tried to check if it is related in any way to Mastercard but I could find any info about trust.
    Seems interesting but I don't know if it is a scam or not.
    Anyone tried it or heard anything on that?

    PPRO Financial Ltd is a UK registered company, OK really England and Wales (No 07653641) and is an FCA registered Authorised Electronic Money Institution.

    Looks legitimate.

    ...Having looked at your website (with contact details hidden by DomainsByProxy.com) I'm not surprised your account was blocked.

    You're listed as President/CEO: "Baron Louis Forino of Little Staughton Knight of Malta and Templar of England". What???...

    Mr Louis or Luigi Forino (he is an Italian national resident in France) has a history on this interweb of ours, which appears to consist of accusing other people of being scammers whilst claiming to run some vast oil company that does not exist.

    P.S. Being the Baron of Little Straughton is just something that requires a little cash.

    class action against viabuy
    I suggest starting a class action against viabuy as there are more and more people who have been duped by this organisation . the more we are the lower the fees and the greatest chance of getting our money back !!!
