Chad England on September 16, 2020

They just charged my card today for $19.51 (I want a explanation of why TF if this has been going on since April of 2014) What, the bank has no way of tracing where the $uck the funds are being transferred. I'm going to work on tracing this myself then. AND, let me find out who took my cash with no consent. Notta good move.

Helen on September 18, 2020

Fraudulent charge. Interesting that 25 people reported this as trusting while over 100 is reporting fraud. Who knows how many people haven't noticed. They apparently were doing this in 2014 and decided to get busy again this week.

Tom on September 24, 2020

Fraud rip off charged 169.00 to a debit card credit union caught

Pete sept 25 2020 on September 26, 2020

MTD on September 26, 2020

I had two charges totaling over $300 today. Does anyone know if it’s a legit business being scammed by a 3rd party crook or is it a fraudulent business?

GF in NC on September 29, 2020

Good Try on October 01, 2020

These pieces of !$^#, waste of life, scam artists stole ONE HUNDRED FORTY DOLLARS from me! Never been to PA and never smoked a cigar in my life. Had to cancel my card. Screw these guys. Monitor your accounts, so these losers don't take any more money from anyone. They need to actually WORK for their money, not steal it. LOSERS.

Heather thompson on October 04, 2020

Had a 147.99 pending on my debit card as of 10.4.2020 from cigars bethlehem pa. Cancled my card. Bank is closed today. Hope get my money back.

RCJ on October 05, 2020

They tried on 10-3-2020 for $163.00 but bank declined charge. Unbelievable, they have not been caught...How are they even getting the account or debit card numbers? So now we can’t have a bank account or debit card? Really!!!

Thomas on October 07, 2020

I also have a charge $145 charge from CIGARS BETHLEHEM PA. Does everyone had a TD Bank account? Just wondering if we all have something in common and why hasn't the FBI gotten involved?

asheville, nc on October 07, 2020

just got hit with it today.. $147.45.....SUCKS

Salina Smith on October 08, 2020

I found this site here and read all the comments on Oct 6 2020 it happened to me too 15.88 taken out. I now decided to comment too. I am a part of Wells Fargo. I told Wells Fargo to add this to their fraud list and they said they cant do that. Trying to thing where I put my card in online sites. It’s still pending and won’t go away. Apparently they call it in online these people with your card number. I am a cash person and don’t really use my card online. I did order from Motor Vehicle not sure if that was it.

Jim on October 08, 2020

My bank card issuer declined a 16.98 charge attempt from this place today. Never heard of this place, don't order cigars, and I'm the only cardholder.

Salina Smith on October 08, 2020

Hi me again from the comments above. It's Cigars International and they are aware of the frauds going on. I called them and gave them my name and last four digits of my card and they found it. They blocked that persons account and stopped the order. It was from an online order not call in. Apparently to order you need the card number and expiration date only. Takes 3-5 days for the charge to be refunded.

Thomas on October 09, 2020

Try the 484-285-0400 number as well. Yeah, hopefully the PA FBI is looking into it as there was another cigar shop (owner) from PA that went prison for nearly $1 million in credit card fraud--not saying this shop is in on it.

Hunter on October 11, 2020

I just got hit with a $147.45 account too.

Jen B. on October 12, 2020

I had a fraudulent charge of $156.65 charged to my debit card on 10-12-2020. Called my bank to turn off that card and filed a claim for fraud.

Meagan C. on October 13, 2020 on October 13, 2020

Fraudulent charge on my debit card. Card closed immediately.

CCFrustrated on October 14, 2020

FRAUD! 2 attempted charges. One on October 11, 2020 and the other on October 13, 2020. Bank sent a fraud alert, not because of these but because there were also attempted charges to Adidas US Online for almost $1900! One charge for for almost $900 and another for almost $1000!

Rick on October 14, 2020

Same happened here. Charge attempt yesterday @ CIGARS for 15.99 for a card I use for very specific local things. I'm guessing someone's system was breached and they obtained a number of people's card information.

Penny on October 14, 2020

I’m from Va. currently in NC. And Just had 3 charges 17.98 show up on my citi card. I get alerts for all purchases. Called immediately. So frustrating, gotta make calls and change number. T

Jphn K on October 17, 2020

Charged 123,10 today

Ian W on October 21, 2020

Just charged $186.17 to my card, luckily Wells Fargo was smart enough to flag it and deny the transaction. Why the F has this been happening since 2014? This is completely unacceptable in so many ways. There's probably a Cigar shop in Bethlehem that must get calls about this on a daily basis.

Zacwattack on October 28, 2020

Fraudulent charge today. 170 my bank reported to me and declined it.

Juli on October 29, 2020

Got charged $178 yesterday too but they reversed the charge on my credit card. Maybe they are were testing to see if I would notice before charging more. Reported immediately to Chase bank and got a new card.

Vicki on November 02, 2020

Just found a $331 charge to our card and am waiting to speak to the bank about stopping this charge. This is outrageous! We are in Florida and do not smoke! I will be reporting to any and all fraud agencies as possible! They need to be stopped!

David on November 08, 2020

Two charges for $613.34 & $1232.57 this week. Live in Florida.

Jenn on November 09, 2020

I just found a charge for $13.28 and contacted my credit card to report FRAUD! Asked if I would help if they found out who did this and I said, YES- 100% agree. I never lost my card and don't smoke cigars ever. This needs to be stopped !!

Sarah on November 17, 2020

3 $345.67 charges on my credit card. They were still pending but I had to cancel my card never been to this place. The company actually is aware of the fraud I contacted them and they actually refunded my money the second day. My credit card company said it could take up to 30 days to dispute so at least this place did something about it.

BUCKEYE WILLY on November 18, 2020

$328 charged to debit card today November 18, 2020 by Cigars Bethlehem Pa. My bank is investigating

John Paul DiMarco on December 27, 2020

AM on January 17, 2021 on February 01, 2021

Charged $380.99 had to cancel my debit card. We also don't smoke and had never heard of Cigars.

Frank on February 01, 2021

Just had a charge of fraudulent charge of $165.13 on my debit card. Never heard of the company and I don't smoke. The bank refused the charge and cancelled my debit card. I hadn't used my debit card for months until 2 weeks ago when I helped my son with a late card payment. Seems very suspicious. Keep a close eye on your debit and credit card use.

pam on February 11, 2021

two charges this week on two different cards had to cancel both cards. We also don't smoke and had never heard of Cigars.
