Conned? Venmo still wants payment
Trying to recoup money from canceled payments, “Venmo has threatened to dispatch debt collectors against victims of scams,” said Peter Rudegeair in The Wall Street Journal. Rachel Karpen-King discovered she’d been scammed after sending $2,500 via the popular payments app to imposters pretending to sell her software for a new job. Her bank stopped the payment. But Venmo threatened to report her to a collection agency if she didn’t pay back the amount the app had already forwarded.
