Whenever I am making an online purchase, I check to see if there are any shopping portals which offer extra points or miles or cashback for the purchase. The first place I generally check is EVRewards. So, today, I looked there and saw that BigCrumbs offered 9% cashback on purchases at Gilt City and I clicked on the link that would bring me directly to Big Crumbs. This is what I found:
BigCrumbs.com is currently offline while we investigate possible fraudulent activity.
We will update our members as soon as we learn more.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

I don’t know if messages like this are routine, or if this is really something out of the ordinary, but out of caution, I thought I’d report it. If you have any information, please comment below. thanks.
