    PEARLS is a legitimate company but I don't know if the website is theirs. I would definitely call someone.

    just checked the link

    did you call their number 1-866-865-7277

    They do have an address in St. Petersburg, Florida - have you checked with the Better Business Bureau?
    There is list of names re: their Editorial Board
    And description of their Accreditation with Georgia Nurses Association Continuing Education Review Committee

    can you contact your credit card to stop any more charges? and explain.

    If you can't get ahold of them, and they are a scam, dispute the charge with your credit card company....most of them offer additional protection if you use the card in a purchase.

    Call you credit card company and put a charge on hold until the issue will be resolved.

    oops,.my bad,..sorry didn't know I couldn't post a link to a web site,...

    update,.called the card company,.there will be no more charges on that card,..will discuss the exact charges with them tomorrow,...still no luck with the web site,.and can't find it listed under any of the "accreditation sites",..guess I made a mistake,...watch out everyone!!
