This is a fraudulent organization - I do not own a pet and have never purchased anything from this company. The charge appeared on my credit card and I cancelled it immediately, while abroad. The authorities need to shut this organization down because many elderly people may be robbed in this way.

Adam on September 28, 2016

This company changed a credit card that I have, but have never once used at any time. It sat in my office and I still have the card in my possession. There should be no way they could have gotten this information. I'm HIGHLY suspicious of this company.

Michelle on May 01, 2017

Someone used my credit card and purchased through this company. Luckily my credit card company notified me of this and also two Wal-Mart charges on line. Fraudulent.

allan on May 03, 2017

I too had someone charge my credit card to this company for 16.00 dollars as well as 2 200+ dollar charges to walmart as well. credit card company flagged them and my card is canceled. from may 1st -may 3rd

Marcy on May 04, 2017

Also had a charge from FOSTER SMITH MAIL ORDR with two walmart charges totaling $805. Thank god my cc company notified me immediately because I never use that card. 5/4/2017

Lisa on June 09, 2017

I had the same thing happen as Marcy Allan and Michelle. Special thanks to capital one for catching them before I lost money

Diana on June 14, 2017

This company should be blacklisted for any online activities. Three consecutive suspicious charges showed up on my credit card on the same day. I never owned a pet or ever purchased any pet items, online or in-store. Of these fraudulent charges are not necessarily the company's fault they have done nothing to protect their merchant ID and company name from being the source of fraud. Shame on Dr. Foster and Smith. I am going to file a complaint with BBB on top of the credit card fraud case.

Keisha on June 24, 2017

I had a fradulent charge from Foster Smith Mail Order and a walmart charge totaling $124. My credit card company notified me and it was taken care of. Its very suspicious that everyone on here is saying the same thing. I'm wondering what more can be done to look into this further

Nick on June 26, 2017

I was just charged $166 by Foster Smith, I don't own any pets and never made any purchases with this company. There were no other fraudulent charges other than this company from any the charge cards I own.

Dom V on June 29, 2017

I had a 69.54 charge and I have never herd of this company until they tried to fraudulently charge my capital one cc... All good now, this card had been deactivated

Jeff H on June 29, 2017

I too had a charge from Foster Smith for 112.83 on June 29 2017. It was on a card that we have never used and luckily CapOne fraud dept. caught it and stopped the charge from going through. I have no idea how they got my card number but it has been deactivated and charges will be filed against this company

P Knight on October 20, 2017

I was just hit as well Foster Smith for $600+ and Walmart for $145+. Odd that most folks on here have the same 2 companies used for fraudulent charges. Also odd, how many of us had this happen to our Capital One account.

Sandra on October 28, 2017

I got hit too. I received an email at 11pm about a charge, since I opted to get notified when I make a purchase. I don’t even own any pets. Now I’m on hold with foster asking how they have my info. So far I’ve been on hold and no one is telling me anything. The last purchase I made was from the Walmart app. I will never make a purchase on there again. It’s a shame.

Jerry Mack on November 04, 2017

Got a 109 Charge on a card that has been shredded years ago...We don't even know the CC number...Luckily the CC company sent an email

Priscilla on November 04, 2017

I too was hit today for $49.31, but Capital One flagged it immediately as possible fraud. I do not have a pet and have never done business with this company before. As a matter of fact, I hardly ever use this card so how my number was stolen is mysterious.

Amy on November 25, 2017

On 11/24/17 was fraudulently charged 65.79 from Foster Smith Mail Order on my Capital One. So if there are so many email concerning Capital One - wouldn’t it be a leak in their security ?

Gotme 2 on December 16, 2017

I was just hit from this scam company, and another by Watch your accounts daily, it is the holiday season !!

veronica Hill on December 26, 2017

RICHARD SAUNDERS ON JANUARY 26TH, 2018 on January 26, 2018

Someone used my VISA CREDIT CARD and CC fraud dept caught the two charges, one being this FOSTER SMITH MAIL ORDER ....sounds like some one sold one of the listings we all heard about being hacked last year to the FOSTER scam co. On ward...cancel the old, get a new ## (pain, but necessary) mark as helpful

Mrs. Harvey on February 03, 2018

Got an email today talking about a charge from foster mail order for 89.95 and I don’t know who it is as soon as this happened capital one locked my account and is sending me a new card. This is bull!$^#. Please monitor your credit.

Bessie White on March 12, 2018

Received email regarding an account that has not been used since 2016 informing me that a charge was denied from Foster and Smith mail order. Never heard of this company until today.

Mike Sarasota on March 16, 2018

my capitol one card was charged for $17.13 they texted me if I charged this and I responded no, then they locked the card. I haven't used this credit card for almost a year. the only thing I do have is a recurring Crunch Fitness charge for gym membership which is mine but new just got in January. I wonder if any of the prior people have Crunch Fitness charges and this happened as well ??

Sandy on March 18, 2018

Someone used my Visa debit card to charge $27.35 a few hours after I purchased movie tickets online. Since I have several notifications and alerts on my account the charge was declined. Never heard of Foster Smith Mail order. Glad I found this page. This needs to be shut down,

Sherond on March 19, 2018 on March 19, 2018

I have never heard of this company; Foster Smith Mail Order. They attempt to make a purchase of $128 on my account, but my credit card company suspected fraud and denied the charge.It is truly amazing how people sit around and figure out ways to steal from others who have worked hard to earn their money.

Cleaned out bank account to The penny on March 29, 2018

A few hours after using non after using my card at Walgreens I got two alerts from my bank that my card had been used online, phone or mail order. The two amounts charged equaled to my total bank account balance.. leaving me 0.00. Looked to see what happened and the charges were From fosters Smith mail order. Reported to bank ASAP but not sure how I’ll survive there 10 days it can take to get my money back. Omg... people suck!!

Erika on March 30, 2018

Woke this morning to charged on account by Foster and Smith mail order ..... Too me 3 seconds on Google to find the fraud reports! Called the bank and files dispute. Now to sit and wait for the bank to return it.... 10 days! I live on disability and I can not afford this crap. Now no money in the house until the middle of the month. With all these reports why is this company still allowed to work?

Lee on March 31, 2018

Online fraudulent debit card charge for $27.35 today. Usual procedure - Wells Fargo cancelled the card, will mail a new card within 5-7 days and refund the account within 10 days. I caledl the pet supply retailer and they seemed legitimate but did state they were aware someone was running charges under their name.

NymO on April 07, 2018
