Angry Creit card expired, RcU wants me to upgrade?

Hi Need Help, My credit card expired and RCU. They wants me to upgrade my account. Also they want me to deposit via Paypal $10-35$ with them. I tried to put in a current credit card and they no longer accept credit cards. It seams that they want my paypal account linked to RCU. IS THIS A SCAM???

Sounds a bit suspicious to me.

Hi, I tried to follow what RCU wanted, Sent$10 and tried to link Paypal to RCU. They got my $10 but still blocked with the same original message that I had to upgrade my acct? Don't know how to resolve the problem?

They did that to me last year. I was blocked out of the buy and sell part of the site. I couldn't even look at the ads. After I paid $10 by PayPal I was no longer blocked. It might have taken a day or two for the transaction to be processed.

You don't have to pay anything or upgrade to use the site,, you can down grade to the basic level, you're just limited to a max of two pics per ad and can't buy the add-ons later. I've never paid a dime here and never given RCU my CC number

It is not a scam. We have not accepted new credit card submissions or card renewals in over a year.

rcrube, please PM me with your Paypal transaction ID and date. I will be sure it is applied to your account ASAP.
